No longer going to be in the dark.....

....dress code that is! You guessed it, I got the job at the Loft....whoop....whoop (picture me raising the ceiling. can't? yeah, me neither). I am really exited!! My favorite part of all this is that Loft is now pushing for their sales associates to be more like stylists, how great is that? I love putting outfits together for people and now I am going to get paid for it....icing on the cake!

I will be sad to say goodbye to Macy's, I LOVE all my co-workers and my manager is a great lady but I won't miss the dark dress code.

Here is my outfit from last night, I love black and cognac brown together, it reminds me of a Burberry bag. I am off to T-Ball and then straight to work. Hope you all are having a great weekend!
Tuxedo IV dress: Shabby Appple
Belt: Banana Republic
Shoes: Mootsies Tootsies

Many congrats!! You'll be a great addition to the Loft team. I would love to see how you style outfits along with any cute finds and new items coming out at the LOFT :) Please? haha

Congrats! I live up in North. Cal and wanted to mention a job opportunity you would be great at, also. I know a gal who started her own stylist consulting job. She worked for herself. My sister treated to me her once and it was a great investment! I suddenly had a wardrobe v. clothes. She charged on an hourly basis.

yippeee! I knew you would get it! Congrats! I only wish you lived near me so I could come see you at the Loft for tips!

AppGal said...

Hoooraaay! Congrats! I just knew you would get the job. Can't wait to have an insider at the LOFT :) What are the rules of your work outfits now? Do you have to wear all LOFT, all the time, or are you allowed to wear other brands?

Congratulations! They are lucky to have you! I'm looking forward to the F&F coming up - they just gave me the coupon today :)

Sweet Tea, when is the F&F? I'm wondering if my nearby LOFT Is just handing out coupons. Thanks.

Bianca said...

Yay!! Congrats!!! Can't wait to see all the great things you will be wearing!!

I think F and F is like towards the end of next week - card holders get a "preview" on the 20th-25th, so I think the regular sale starts after that....

Stacy said...

Congrats!! You will do great.

Rachel said...

I am a new follower and LOVE all your outfits. I am also a recent LOFT shopper. I never shopped there before but I LOVE the direction the company is going in! Can't wait to see the cute things you find.

Congrats!!!
Loft has had such amazing product lately...I am envious of your associate discount for sure!
I just completed week one of my new job with another retailer and took advantage of a 50% first shot today!
Such a great perk, isn't it?

MMM said...

Congrats on the new job!! ~YAY~ What perfect fit! ;)

Congrats on your new job! I've read your blog for a long time, but have never commented. For a long time, I though you already worked for loft because your outfits always showcase the latest and greatest! As someone who has worked for them for 4 years, I know you will love it. I'm convinced it's the most fun place to work in retail. Loft's #1 focus is on delighting the client- not meeting individual sales goals. It's such a relaxed work environment, the clients are super nice, and the 50% discount is unbeatable. I hope your store is just as awesome as mine! (And no- they aren't paying me to say this, I just really love my job)!

Congratulations on the job!
And I love that dress on you so much more than in the pictures on the Shabby Apple website... Great outfit.

caffeinerd said...

Congratulations! Very exciting. And I do love this dark outfit---maybe it can make an appearance at Loft, too. ;)

triciathomas said...

Congratulations!!! I just found your cute blog (blog-surfing) love all your modestly styled outfits and now want to go shopping at DownEast, Shade, among others!

Debye said...

Sorry it took me soooo long to get back to all your comments, you sure know how to make a girl feel good!!!

Anonymous 2-thanks for the tip, that would be a dream job for me and my husband, he would so rather I was spending other people's money when I shopped.

AppGal-I don't have to wear Loft clothing, I just have to dress like I belong there :o) They have more of a style to work policy then a dress code.

Kristen-you will have to give me some Loft employee pointers ;)

Triciathomas-welcome!!!!!
