Today was a fairly relaxed day as most Sundays have been. Christmas shopping hasn't quite started yet. I wake up and check my phone. Some activity. A local client wants a particular Gucci bag and a client in New Jersey wants me to check out BAPE kids-wear for her.
My trade report is due today. It's a diary recollection of the last week of work noting new and regular clients, appointments and sales I had last week. It was an amazing week for me as I met at least 7 new clients, all whom are lovely and said they will be back. Those are the best kinds of clients!
My regular lovely client Mark came to see me about a Hallowe'en costume he was purchasing, and to tell me about the finishing accessories on his outfit. We talk over a crisp glass of pink champagne. Now Mark usually is wearing Dior couture, Dries Van Noten, Ann Demeulemeester or some luxury brand so a costume suit cut of polyester fabric is a bit off-putting to him. "Does it fit nice?" "Yes Mark, I promise these are quality costume suits, and besides, you make anything look good!"
After calling the tailor to take up the hem a bit to make way for a "flash of orange sock", we head back to the lounge to say goodbye. Not before stopping in Saint Laurent though, and trying on a long wool coat with low placed belt, giving the jacket a slight samurai/kimono look. "I quite like this", says Mark. "It's a contender with the Dior coat I have on hold."
After Mark leaves I wait around for a new client coming in for an evening wedding dinner dress. But not before I whiz down to Cristofle and Waterford to choose a whiskey decanter and four crystal glasses for a client's father's 55th. Yes, I'm even a crystal and china specialist. ;)
For my social media posts of the day I decided to highlight the Italian designer philosophy di lorenzo serafini, a romantic luxury clothing brand designing fairy tale pieces that fit like a dream and are surprisingly affordable. If you are a tall person who enjoys a full length frock in exquisite fabrics and finishings, this brand is for you. Get in touch with me to be styled in this brand for your next big event. Would be an amazing wedding dress or special occasion dress.
I have a few minutes on my break so I whiz to the Laura Mercier counter and buy a sugar skin scrub that smells so good I was to eat it. I will appreciate this body scrub so much in the shower after these long days of shopping...it's great to pamper and unwind from the busy day.
