Well I was finally able to go to Talbots the other day and REALLY shop! You remember; you go inside a store, you look at stuff in your size, and you actually try it all on. Then you buy it. Of course, I had a return from all my previous on-line purchasing, and that had to be returned to a different register. But, NO CURBSIDE PICK-UP. No virtual shopping and e-chats… Boy was it ever FUN!!! Talbots was ready for me. I called ahead and was delighted to find out that the store was really open. I had to wear a mask of course. All the clothes that I tried on but didn’t purchase, were put on a rack and are stored at the store in the backroom for 24 hours before being returned to the sales floor. I could have arranged for a free personal shopper as that would have insured that the staff person could go a retrieve items for me in different sizes. Instead, I ran back and forth and actually got in 3000 steps in my shopping spree.
The photos shows one fun outfit that I got. It’s a darling colorful print cotton knit skort in the “T by Talbots” line with a coordinating white, slubby knit sleeveless quarter zip top. The top is a bit long so I just ruched it a bit so that the proportions looked right. For shoes I wore standard white leather Keds sneakers and white short socks.
My earrings were a gift from my friend, Ellen and have some pink and blue in the flowered design that coordinates with the skort colors.
All in all, it was a fabulous trip to Talbots. I was so happy to be back in the stores. Stay tuned for more looks in upcoming blogs. Stay safe. And enjoy stimulating the economy with your mask in place!
