As I said in an earlier post, Shopping is something I could do in my sleep. So when it came time to attend the ENK International show at the Jacob Javits Center I was more than prepared. I had my business cards, I had my tax id and most importantly I had 2 unbelievably dedicated, smart, supportive and generous employees, Jocelyn & Krista, willing to take time out of their lives, away from their famiies and go to New York for 2 days to help me order clothing and accessories for Little Black Dress. Their enthusiasm, dedication and energy well, it’s like the visa commercial says “priceless”.   We laughed together, shed a few tears (of joy) together and we bought a lot of stuff! At the end of day 1, we limped (before we were gifted Yosi Samra Ballet Flats on day 2!) to EATaly NY, toasted our hard work with a few Dogfish Heads and enjoyed a delicious meal. We met and worked with the most amazing and stylish designer’s representatives: Hope from Lucky Brand, Susana from Kut From The Kloth, Pooja from Yosi Samra and so many more. We were given free tote bags, free shoes, mini Georgetown Cupcakes, snacks and much needed water. The genuine excitement about Little Black Dress and generoity from these reps was such a boost! And now, as things start to arrive in the store, and we can see the fruits of our labor the excitement is beginning to build. Until next month’s buying trip when we do it all over again… littleblackdress_lucky_sign littleblackdress_beer
