over at my house, i have just started to really unpack personal boxes that have been in storage for years... and i'm especially cautious of the many labeled "Jess' Clothes". it's daunting, embarrassing and overwhelming. i have SO MUCH stuff from HOLIDAY... from when i first opened in 2002 through today!!! i need to come up with a good strategy to "let go" of these meaningul pieces. like tonight i was all, "i wore that Development skirt (by Phillip Lim- before he was PHILLIP LIM 3.1) every day!!! and that Tracy Reese dress! I wore that to my opening party at the Ritz!" (when it was actually the old Ritz). just a few days ago a customer came in and said, "my mom and i shopped here when i lived in Beacon Hill. i miss my BELLA BLOOMERS!" if you're a longtime Holiday gal, you know exactly what those beauties are. #goodtimes
and don't even get me started on the original Holiday CAPES with side bows. EPIC. :)
but to carry on with today's HOLIDAY (it's still awesome, folks) have a look at one item that just arrived. it's a luxe/casual/must-have in chocolate suede and charcoal knit. YUM.
not everything needs a ruffle.
