It’s been a while! I have had a busy busy last couple weeks, and last week I was out of the office attending a trade show held here in Vegas. I promised I would recap the show, since a lot of people think that they want a job in the fashion industry. Now let me say this, if you want that coveted buying job you better do your homework. While there are some people who are privileged enough to own boutiques curated to their own tastes, or Instagram stores that can go in an alley and pick out whatever they like, buying jobs are NOT that easy. It is hard work.
And they kick ass! I have to rely on a ton of metrics in order to know what to buy, because obviously I’m not my customer. I can’t tell you why a clog with red patent leather snake skin will sell like hot cakes, but that shxt is on fire. lol. I honestly prefer being a buyer and going strictly from metrics like margin, turn, etc. If I bought fashion footwear I wouldn’t be able to just say “I took everything they offered because… Idk it was pretty?!”
Of course all of my outfits were Me Made. One is new, and hasn’t been blogged yet but it’s coming soon!
Have an amazing week dolls!
