2 weeks until opening!! - BCBGMaxAzria, Seychelles, and Born!!

2 weeks until opening day.  2 weeks!  This number is somewhat frightening to me.  There seems to be so much left to do, and only 2 weeks to do it!  Even though looking at our schedule for construction, everything seems to be on track and on time, I somewhat start to panic when I hear the 2 week timeline.  Probably the same thing that a lot of people experience come mid December, with Christmas rolling right around the corner.  You have to finish that last minute shopping, wrap everything, decorate, Christmas cookies, and still put on a festive cheer at all those Christmas parties.  The next couple of weeks will be hectic, with a three day buying trip in Toronto, setting up the store, and attending a couple of events.  But like Christmas, when I wake up that opening day, I can't wait for the day to start, and realize that everything that it took to get to that day was worth it, and that I would do it again in a heart beat!

Time to introduce you to a few more of the brands we will have at the store:

A few of you are probably already familiar with the brand BCBGeneration, but meet her big sister BCBGMaxAzria.  This is the sister-who-moved-to-the-big-city line of footwear.  Named for the French phrase "bon chic, bon genre," a Parisian slang meaning "good style, good attitude," the brand embodies a true combination of European sophistication and American spirit.  This brand has also been a staple at the New York Fashion Week since 1996.

Are you a girl who loves a little touch of vintage?  If so, Seychelles is a brand for you!  Seychelles is a brand a lot of you probably haven't heard of before.  This brand takes the vintage elements and adds them to a modern design.   Sweet AND sassy!!

You want to wear the high heals? You want to be comfortable all day?  You can't get both of these?  WRONG!!  Meet Born - the brand of footwear that makes you feel like you're walking on clouds.  Seriously!!  For more than a decade, born has been making super comfy and cute footwear. Their combination of handcrafted styles, premium leathers and fine details have attracted an intensely loyal following.
