Our buying trips to NYC, no matter how short, are always an adventure of some kind. This last trip was no exception. Our hotel room had quad bunk beds and we saw a naked Indian and Billy Crystal on our way to dinner! I love New York!
Erin and I went on our first buying trip of 2014 last week! We shopped Fame, Moda and Accessories at the Javits Center in NYC! We found some great stuff from companies that we already carry and some great new lines too! I am so excited for spring and to see all this new merchandise fill up the store!
In the spirit of Sea Witch weekend, I thought I’d share our Derby de los Muertos playlist from our last roller derby bout! Happy Halloween!
On October 12th the Southern Delaware Rollergirls wrapped up our first ever bouting season. We finished out our first season with five wins and three losses, not including our win in our challenge bout at ECDX in June. It has been an amazing journey with equally amazing ladies. I am so proud of the things this group has accomplished since we started back in 2011.
Right now we are in the process of training “fresh meat” for our 2014 season! It is exciting watching a whole new group of ladies go through their “derby journeys”. I can’t wait to see what 2014 has in store for SoDel!
Wow…what a year we have had! We found out a few months ago that we had been nominated “Boutique of the Year” for the Delaware Today Fashion Awards. The nominations were based on people going online and voting, so we were beyond honored to find out the we were in the running for this award!
This was the first time that Delaware Today had done the Fashion Awards so we really didn’t know what to expect when it came time for the actual event. It was held at Deerfield Country Club in New Ark, which was beautiful. The place was filled with fashion lovers showing off their own unique styles. We walked the room with a signature Fashion Awards drink, the “Fashionista”, and checked out all the awesome businesses that had set up tables for the event showing off their services or shop. When it came time to announce the winners in all the categories, I swear I think my heart stopped. Hearing our name called as the Boutique of the Year winner is a moment I’ll never forget.
Thank you to all who took the time to vote for us, you have no idea how much it means to us. It is nice to know that through all this hard work and time we put into the store, we are doing something right. Thank you for all your support over the years. You make us want to be better each and every season.
