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!
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.
Happy Labor Day Weekend! Sunday work outfit! This is a Jack/B.B Dakota dress from DTCG last spring. I love this as a summer holiday dress because the pink, tan and cream tone down the red, white and blue. Plus it’s twirly, I love a dress with movement! I paired this with a few Lily & Laura Bracelets from DTCG and my go-to summer sandals.
Saturday work outfit! This years “Critter Dress” by Knitted Dove is by far one of my favorite dresses! I’m wearing it with our fox earrings by Vinca, a Lily & Laura Bracelet and a vintage bracelet. The first time I wore this dress was with roller skates for the Southern Delaware Rollergirls fashion show, “Wheels & Heels”. The fashion show was a blast but it is nice to finally wear this dress with a cute pair of sandals! (at Downtown Cowgirl)
Erin and I were thrilled when we found out we had been voted “Best of Delaware, Women’s Casual Clothing 2013”! The Best of Delaware Party was incredible and we were so excited to be a part of it! We spent most of the day setting up our booth at the event, then changed into our DTCG attire and took turns exploring the party and sampling all the wonderful Best of Delaware food & drinks! Thank you again to everyone who voted for Downtown Cowgirl for Best of Delaware 2013!
