As you guys know, yesterday I celebrated Catherines Customer Appreciation Day and store refresh with their Southaven location and I had THE best time! I got to help their team style and give customer’s tips on fit and versatility, and that is one of my favorite things to do. I’ve worked in retail since I was 16, and as much as I love picking out clothes and playing dress up, it’s the connections that you get to make with people that really make me love being a part of the industry. You never know people’s story, and if they “let you in”, you can have some amazing conversations while helping them pick out pieces for a special moment or occasion.
While I was there, I met a Mother/Daughter-In-Law duo shopping for an upcoming wedding, and then the coolest thing happened: a pair of sisters came in shopping for their mom, but because they liked the Tropic Petal Maxi Dress I was wearing so much, they winded up trying it on too and both left with it! We snapped a picture to show how the dress would work on 3 different body types. How cute!
This is one of the comfiest dresses I have ever owned. The tropical floral print is so on trend this season, AND it has pockets! It doesn’t get better than that. Even though it was raining that day, I knew that the dress would be perfect for the event because I could move around without having to fuss with my clothes. The day I got the dress I also picked up this Handpainted Crane Duster and Lace Cami to wear with jeans or capris.
With Camron, the manager at the Southhaven location. She’s amazing!
While Catherines demo tends to skew a little older, younger women can still find modern, stylish clothing to wear from there too. The key is to look for pieces that have special details that make them modern and fresh, but still versatile enough to be worn in different settings. Your accessories (like the Charm Hoop Earrings I wore with the dress or these fun bracelets) will always help elevate even the simplest look. You just have to be purposeful when shopping, and thankfully, their stylists are so knowledgeable about the brand, so they can help you find a look for just about every event. Next time you’re near one, pop in to see what’s new!
