VALENTINE’S WINDOWS

One of my favorite parts about our storefront here in downtown New Bedford, MA is our giant windows! Keeping up with installing new visuals each season is a challenge, but also one of the best parts of my job! Luckily, my BFF, Miss Cody Nowell, is a super-fabulous and creative merchandiser, so we always have a blast creating new windows together!

Here are our most recent windows, inspired by Valentine’s Day, prom time, and Betsey Johnson!

RIP Alexander McQueen

Bisi just broke the tragic news of Alexander Mcqueen’s death to me via Facebook. I clicked the link, thinking, There MUST be some mistake… I can’t believe it’s true. Today, the appropriately-creepy, first day of New York Fashion Week. All my efficient morning activities have been halted. I am just looking at McQueen on Style.com. Not crying or anything. But thinking about it.

RIP, Alexander Mcqueen. And Thanks.
