Today I continued working on the men's section for the new Red Velvet store. I searched through the last of the clothing piles upstairs and I think I found what I needed. It's all looking amazing! I had Elsie snap a couple of pictures while we were there. These are the first two mannequins I've ever dressed:
and below the two mannequins, you can see a small portion of my collection of ties. I don't think I'm going to actually keep that many on display, but I just wanted to lay out a bunch of them so I could get an idea of a color scheme. Here is the collection of men's pants that we have so far:
I think I will be taking Marisa's advice and trying to get some of these tailored. I did find some very nice fitting wool pants, but I think for a full collection we will need to do some work on a few pairs.
While I was working on the men's section, Elsie was working on the front counter display, and sorting through some lamps. There is a HUGE collection of them, but I'm still not really sure where to put them in the store. As of now, we don't really have a specific section for them. Here are just a couple that we like:
I have an embarrassing confession to make. Part of the reason I have this little adrenaline rush to work on clothing/fashion is because this week I got hooked on The Rachel Zoe Project. I watched one episode and told Elsie I'd never watch it again. Then the next night, I caught myself thinking, "Hmmm... They going to fashion week, and there may be some cool runway shows". Then the next night, "Maybe Rachel IS pregnant... I want to see Roger's reaction...".
I'm getting ready to watch the season finale right now. Don't judge.
