I just received a great new cardigan from RYU! It's a heather grey knit cardi with a chiffon tie at the neck and it retails for $69! You can't beat that price for a must have cardigan! This sweater is long with large pockets at each side, it looks super cute with jeans, black pants/leggings or even with a dress.


Ryu targets women who refuse ostentatious apparel but enjoy diverse fashion channels while promoting individuality. The line maintains female attractiveness while being trendy and up to date. It's a rapidly developing brand that is gaining favorable reviews from US retailers!

Fun after Stocked Market

Until this weekend I had never been to Roanoke, VA. I must say it's a great town and not nearly as small as I thought it was, the mountains are beautiful and while I hear there isn't a lot of shopping it seems there is an endless supply of great restaurants. We got to try out two different ones, Alejandro's on Friday night and Blue 5 and 202 on Saturday night. I'm so glad Louise was there to help me again....I couldn't do it without her. Dana came up on Saturday making this show more fun than the rest, I just love a little girl time! I had fun ladies, can't wait to do it again!

Host a Clothes Hound Shopping Party

You can shop online, at a mall or a big-box store. But in the middle of the crazy holiday shopping seas, beat the crowds by bringing the store to you. All you need is a party plan and some friends!

Shopping can be a relaxing activity when done right. Shopping parties are no longer about tupperware. Fashion can come to you. Why not make some money or earn free goods while you shop? We bring everything you need right to the comfort of your home or spot of your choice.

Here are a few tips to hosting your shopping party:
1. Call or email me to book a date for your shopping party

2. Inquire about hostess incentives. I will give you 10% of net sales; or give you a credit in that amount towards your purchases.

3. Figure out how many guests you need to invite. We like to have about 20 people at each party, however I will do parties with less people if you have friends who LOVE to shop

4. Determine where to host the party. Find out if your local hair salon will host it. Check out the party room in your condo building, or even your own house.
5. Determine whether or not you'll serve food. Most hosts recommend wine and cheese. It involves less hassle. If this does not meet the dietary requirements of the guests, then choose something that works.

The key is a successful shopping party is attendees. A great mix of fabulous shoppers/friends makes for a fun-filled shopping event. Nothing beats personal attention - a whole shopping event that caters to you and your crew.

Another way to increase your incentives - Check to see if your office/church/other entity is interested in hosting a shopping party. The more the merrier. Shopping parties are also a great ideas for bachelorette parties, bridal/wedding showers and other events.
Arrange a time, sit back, relax, and enjoy a cozy, intimate and personalized shopping event.

It always helps to pass the time at the show when you have fun customers you love to hang out with! Overall the show was great and I definitely want to come back next year.

I just met with Molly from V Fish and should have some new arrivals tomorrow! I'll send out those pics and update the site asap. =)

Holly Day Fair

I have enjoyed a full week of rest! No big shows last week although a few of my best friends threw a fabulous Clothes Hound/Lauren Skye Party on Saturday in Raleigh. It was a great pre-game before the Halloween Festivities. This week I'm gearing up for Holly Day Fair which starts on Thursday and runs through Sunday. The nice part is I'm staying in my own bed for this one, the show is in Fayetteville which is an hour and a half away but it's worth the drive to sleep in my own bed! I'm not sure what to expect from this show but it's the biggest in Eastern NC so I'm hoping for good things!
