and other important truths…
The holiday season rattles forward. For some, we’re smack dab in the middle of the holidays and for others, there are a few more days to scramble—I mean shop–for loved ones. Kind, giving women that we are, we’ve got gifts for everyone on an ever-growing list, but most years we forget the girl that is most important to each of us—ourselves.
Why does ‘she’ always get the short end of the stick? As far as you are concerned, she is always loyal, always reliable and usually fairly honest with you. She’s should probably be your best friend, and yet every December, she goes gift-less for yet another year.
So, I bet your thinking “Man, Monif, what and eloquent and thoughtful argument. I think I’ll make it a New Year’s Resolution.” But then again, why wait? Why not bring in the New Year with something, well…new?
So, my end of year challenge to you? Go Gift Yourself. Go find that dress that makes you feel like every bit of yourself. You know, the one that dropped jaws and turns heads? (Yes ma’am, that one.) And rock it. Hard.
Might I submit a few marvelous suggestions?
As far as personal decadence goes, it doesn’t get much better.
As a matter of fact, since I am all for progress, all bold Monif C. girls (which, as far as I am concerned is all of you) that take on the ‘Get Gifted’ challenge, will get 50% off the not only the ‘Nelli’ Ruched Dress, but also the ‘Thalia’ Dresses until the end of the week. So, ladies, get the lead out, tee hee.
Stay Curvy (& get that girl a gift!),
and other important truths…
Ladies, I bring you a tale of woe from within the walls of my own friendly boutique. One of my fabulous colleagues, Anne* has been in love with the cobalt blue convertible dress, since…well, essentially, since it was created. She has known since she saw it that it was totally for her. On Monday, she came into work, happy as always, and declared “Today is a good day to buy a convertible dress…preferably a blue one.” She walked onto the sales floor and perused the area….no blue convertibles to be found. She ran to our back stock area, and searched the shelves–blue convertible dress-less. She spun and said to our shipping manager, Diane, “Dee, where are the blue convertible dresses?!” Dee replied nonchalantly, “Oh, we sold out of it yesterday.”
Well, Anne looked like we stole her new puppy. She cried “what do you mean?” She asked Diane if she was ‘sure’ no less than 10 consecutive times. She could be seen peeking under folded stacks of clothing and into filing cabinets for the rest of the day. To this day, she is still hopeful and convinced–a blue convertible dress WILL pop-up somehow, but sadly we know the deal; Baby Girl missed out.
So, I tell you this sad cautionary tale for a reason. Don’t be that girl. Convertible dresses sell with the quickness ESPECIALLY when they are on sale, which, they currently are, m’dears.
Don’t let Anne’s story happen to you…get your dress today!
* Names have been changed to protect procrastinating colleagues.
Update: Anne has learned to live without the blue convertible dress. She is the proud new owner of a grey one, which she assures me that she loves “just a much.” She has however, changed her morning greeting from ‘Morning, you guys!” to “Any Blue ones?” Sadly for her, the answer remains a ‘no.’
It’s a Monday and as per usual, we begin each week with a few (of countless) examples of customer fab! As the holidays approach with unnecessarily rapid speed, many are making plans to go away to visit fam or just to recharge and start the New Year in new place.
