Behind the Scenes with Sarah: Vegas Buying Trip 2015

Posted on
Not everything that happens in Vegas should stay there...last week Nikki, Rochelle, and I (Sarah) all left the freezing cold for sunnier skies and warmer temps to pick out all the best looks for summer/fall 2015, and believe you me, the future looks GORGEOUS! We attended the semi-annual WWD Magic show and it was well worth the trip!

This trip was particularly exciting for me, as I am new to the buying business. It was such an amazing learning experience and quite awe-inspiring. The sheer magnitude of the shows is enough to overwhelm even the coolest of people! Luckily with my seasoned vets to guide me, we stayed focused, organized, and we will be able to deliver our customers the very newest and coolest trends on the market! Below are a few snapshots of our favorite booths and some sneak peaks into the trends to come!

As Joe Zee said to us at a seminar on our final day, if there is one responsibility we have as buyers it is "To bring back the very best trends, and something new and fabulous to our loyal customers who look to us to style and inspire them". We took his advice to heart and we hope you'll all agree!

On-site models at one of our favorites, Paige, taking a quick break from trying out product all day. Paige Adams-Geller launched her namesake collection in 2004. Today, she sits at the helm of PAIGE as the only female founder in the denim industry, providing lived-in comfort and a fit that supports an active lifestyle.

Our newest secret weapon, an amazing jewelry brand right out of Miami, all handmade with real druzy stones, Bara Boheme! Every piece is hand made with love and variation. The beauty of nature is variety, in shapes, colors, origin and consistency. We can't wait to share these beauties with you in shop soon!

Our fabulous rep at the Bobi booth showing us all the best basics for summer and fall. Bobi is a women’s collection encompassing casual tees to elegant dresses in a variety of jersey weights in beautiful colors. Bobi has a huge celebrity fan base- including Kim Kardashian, Nicole Richie, Selena Gomez, Hilary Swank, Madonna and Giuliana Rancic... and the girls at Lee & Birch! ; )

Stopped to visit with our girls at Lat & Lo and place another order of Grand Rapids and Grand Haven coordinates! A unique handcrafted jewelry line that began in the oceanside town of Neptune Beach, Florida, and they are huge supporters of small business across the US, making custom, handmade pieces just for us, and you! We've restocked our cuffs and necklaces in store.
