Breezy Days: Confessions of a Shop Girl

Confessions of a Shop Girl

First off, welcome to all my new friends following along! 
Second off, holy cow is it already Christmas next week?!

You know what my favorite part has been of working in the mall during this holiday season?
{For all you newbies, I work at Francesca's Collections, if you haven't definitely need to go!}
Seeing all these poor husbands/boyfriends/brothers/sons walk in the store and just stand there.
Yup, they just stand there at the front of the store 
and, I'm sure, practically go cross-eyed from all the overwhelming sparkle and array of colors.
They are one of the first customers I walk over to help because these poor guys come into the store having no clue what the heck they are even looking for.

I usually start with the line of questioning:
Jewelry or clothes?
Chunky or simple necklaces?
Studs or chandelier earrings?
Gold or silver?
Small or Medium?
Teal or burgundy?

After a truckload of questions and options, we can usually narrow it down to about 2 or 3 options.
Then these guys breathe a huge sigh of relief because they aren't 
completely lost in an abyss of glitter & bright colors anymore.
There is FINALLY some direction!
I told my dad to head into a totally girly store in California to get something specific for my mom,
he then texted me:
"I got the present, and I checked my manhood at the door to get it."

I told him, and you would be smart to remind your husbands/dads/brothers of this...
Us shop girls think it is THE most adorable thing to see these boys/men shop for the girls in their lives.
Yup, we even talk about it after they leave and "oooo" and "ahhh" over how cute it is.
Plus we don't mind picking out presents for you girls that we wouldn't mind getting ourselves :)

seriously my favorite thing to see.
last weekend we were at jcrew and i saw an old man doing it, trying to point to people in the store to figure out her size and he spent over $200 on beautiful clothes. what a great man.

Would you believe I still have never been to a Francesca's? I mean, I stopped in once, but I was in-and-out, because I was looking for something specific, and at the time, I still didn't know the glory of Francesca's!

I know. This needs to change. Stat.
