We just received a couple of great items by French Connection including the Hound Dress above the Bonny Dress and Poison Ivy skirt. I love the way you can take the Hound Dress from work to dinner out with your hubby while only changing a few accessories! We'll be getting in new items from Ryu later this week so stay tuned! lesson by Nancy_89 featuring French Connection
Sorry I haven't been updating the blog too much lately but my schedule has been crazy. A shopping spree which ran Wed. - Sun. has just come to an end and it was a great show but really exhausting! I got lots of new things in for the show and sold out of almost all of them immediately! I have some other great things by Ryu and French Connection coming in this week! I think I may finally get the coveted Red/Leopard Karlie Dress as well! My next show is next week, it's the Hollyday Fair in Fayetteville, I've heard good things about this show and hope it's as good as they promise!
Wow last week was a whirl wind! I was in Baton Rouge all week for Hollydays which went pretty well except for getting a virus and missing one day of the show! It's not fun to be sick away from home! The 13 hour drive wasn't too fun either but I did get to enjoy some authentic Louisiana food before starting my 2 day puke fest. sorry. It's interesting to see the styles of different cities, all I can say is Louisiana is definitely the neighboring state of Texas. I saw so many cowboy boots and rhinestones! The bigger the hair the closer to God. Everyone was super sweet though!
Shopping Spree in Raleigh starts tomorrow which I am definitely looking forward to! Last year's show was a huge success and I'm glad to be sleeping in my own bed! If your in Raleigh or close by you should come to the event which is the 21-25.
I just got in some great Big Buddha Bags, like the Mia bag in the picture above and some fabulous new dresses as well!
I finished up Martha's Market in Charlottesville on Sunday and headed down to Baton Rouge with my husbands cousin Louise on Monday. We stayed in Montgomery Monday night and arrived in Baton Rouge Tuesday afternoon. We haven't see a lot of BR yet but what we have seen has been great! We ate at Parrains last night, trying some authentic Cajun food, so yummy! We are going to drive by LSU today and do a little more exploring! The Hollydays show starts tonight and runs through Saturday and then we'll be making the trip back to NC on Sunday!
We arrived in Charlottesville around noon and were greeted by super nice workers from Martha's Market. They helped us unload everything and provided free lunch for all the vendors, yipee. Did I mention I am renting a cargo van for the next two weeks so I can fit all of my Clothes Hound goods inside? I love the Van but b/c I have it I brought more than normal and have tons of stuff! My mom is helping me with this show, she's a great free worker which you can't beat! We've already decided we have a stalker at our hotel who we know snuck in our room so we are staying somewhere else the next 2 nights. Charlottesville is gorgeous but of course I picked the one hotel that seems like it's not in the best part of town. It's always an interesting trip with me!
If you are anywhere near Charlottesville this weekend please visit us at Martha’s Market!

After the 3 day Shecky's show in Philadelphia my girlfriend Allison hosted a Clothes Hound party on Friday night. The party was a blast, the girls picked out what they liked and then tried it all on for one another like a mini-fashion show. After a few bottles of wine were emptied the girls paid up before leaving with their new duds around 12am.
I've recently received several new shipments of fall merchandise and there is some really great stuff so be sure to check out the site!
Another Shecky's show has come to an end and I am completely exhausted! I drove up to Philly form NC on Tuesday morning leaving at 6am and arriving about 1pm. Luckily I was greeted by my bestie Allison who helped me unload and set up for the show, not to mention she helped me work it every night! The show was Tues, Wed, and Thurs night from 5-10. There was some great shopping to be done and lots of alcohol to go around! We were stationed next to the Cupcake ladies which worked out really well for me. =) We packed up last night and headed back to Allison's house around midnight. Now that Shecky's is over I'm looking forward to the Clothes Hound Party Allison is hosting tonight, should be a blast!
