A Sunday Afternoon Shopping with Friends!
Talbots approached Fashion Trends and Friends and asked if we would be interested in having a shopping party at their Old Orchard store. We loved the idea! So we invited some of our friends and family and spent a delightful afternoon checking out Talbots new spring collection. Our host and store manager, Bridgette Losielle, rolled out the red carpet welcoming us with lovely refreshments and a dedicated spot in their beautiful dressing room.
She created a “look bar” to give us inspiration and to highlight their new spring arrivals! It included some of the spring’s hottest trends like gingham, blouses with bows and many pieces in blush rose which is a color being featured this season. Blush rose looks good on all skin tones! She also had an accessory station in the dressing room that included jewelry, scarfs, purses and shoes. So thoughtful! It allowed us to easily create different looks as we tried on clothes. Bridgette also created a “look wall” in the dressing room showing one jacket worn 4 ways! It was a great way to show us how to create multiple outfits and looks around a signature piece.
Then the shopping began. It is much more fun to shop with friends than by yourself. You can rely on your girlfriends to tell you the truth, push you a little out of your comfort zone, and kindly tell you when something doesn’t flatter. We all found something we loved! Kathy found a great pair of pants. Janet purchased a great jacket and several tops. Liza found a great pair of jeans; and Lynn had to have this jacket and kitty cat tee. I bought 2 adorable blouses and black and white gingham pants. I am in love with these pants and shirts. We had lot of laughs and an overall great time. Our sincere thank you to Bridgette and the entire Talbot’s staff for giving us this VIP shopping experience! It is definitely something we’d like to do again. If you are interested in joining our next shopping party, leave a comment. We’d love to share this experience with you!
