What a hectic, exciting few days we’ve had! A awful lot of thought goes into our buying decisions. When we’re choosing items it’s not only the style of the pieces that we think about. Besides the look of the garment there’s the consideration of making sure it’s made of the highest quality fabric. And the value for our clients.
In seeking unique clothing that has all the qualities mentioned above we may go through a 1000 pieces of a line in which we then have to narrow it down to 50. Then there are other considerations such as: looking at a design in terms of is it a good fit on a child? Is the waist in the correct place? Is there backing on the embroidery? Are the buttons easy to use? Is the fabric soft and not scratchy?
There are a ton of factors beyond just the look of a garment that go into the process of deciding what to buy for our clients. But it’s worth all the time and effort because this is our winning philosophy at Everything But The Princess.
