Working Girl


(My attempt at documenting my outfit today.
I swear to stop being lazy & start using my tripod one of these days - like a true blogger! ;) )
Lightning bolt printed dress & cardigan : Francescas

I like to pretend that Tuesday is the beginning of my week. (Who needs Mondays anyway!?) I usually don't go into work until 5pm on Mondays, which allows me the entire day to laze about as if it were lazy Sunday...again. However on Tuesdays, I report to work at 9:30am & promptly leave when that clock strikes 5:30. This makes me feel more "normal," however I really do love my erratic, retail schedule!

Today was a very busy Tuesday which included re-merchandising alot of displays at the shop & then babysitting for a few hours after work. I work at a women's boutique called Francesca's Collections. What is great about this company is that it is a large corporate company (with stores in 38 states) that runs alot like a small business. We have almost complete control over the merchandising of the store, including the window & table displays. We are also able to request our own events & sales that are unique to our location. The actual brick & morter stores are also very small so we have very few employees (only 7, actually!) At first I was unsure if I fit in there, being that the pace is alot slower than my previous job with Anthropologie. But I've found my niche in merchandising & all the girls I work with really make my time worth while. I find myself becoming more & more driven to get my own shop up & running sooner than later.

A few photos from my day...

Can you believe we are already selling sandals!?
