(In L.A.) The Process of Choosing Items for Everything But The Princess

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.
