It sat on the hanger and for days it was hidden on a rack between layers of remarkable fitting jeans. For some reason I just kept passing it by. I thought it was a cute piece but never really paid much attention to it. Last night, on a whim, I decided to try IT on: the cotton houndstooth jacket by EC Star that kept staring me down! I wanted to see how it fit and the construction of the garment. Because after all, it's always nice to be able to pass along such valuable information to you, the customers! I really thought I was just doing it for all of you, to be the best employee that I could be, to further my product knowledge and be of assistance to anyone who asked about it. (I'm a great employee like that - always thinking of the customers first! Always!) Well, turns out that little houndstooth jacket is now mine! After slipping it on, it was hook line and sinker for me! I was a goner and I am happy that I snagged the last size small before any of you did!
So I learned a couple of things last night on my shift:
1) Always try things on because they might fit and look totally different on you than on the hanger!
2) Try things on that you may not initially be drawn to. Be daring and open minded! Take things into the dressing room with you that you could never see yourself in. You may be surprised!
3) Buy it when you see it and love it because you never know who else (ME!) is going to come in after you and treat themselves to it.
4) It's o.k. to be a little selfish every now and then and to pamper yourself with some new threads - preferably one's with a houndstooth pattern!
