Last night, local Kansas City bloggers
were invited to tour the Halls
store in Crown Center, preview some fall trends and of course - shop. Halls Crown Center has recently undergone some changes, "moving over" to make room for LegoLand and Sea Life Aquarium.
We started in the women's shoes (duh!) visited accessories (fellow bloggers Meg and Jana snagged some really great bags!) felt like a kid again in the children's department, wondered if I could convince The Mr (Instagram pic here
) to wear velvet (anyone else remember George Castanza??) got into the Holiday spirit and finally walked out with new friends, new shoes, a new fur vest, a goodie bag (literally - a fire engine red handbag) and some delicious chocolate chip cookies.
|Meet Tinkerbell, the sweetest shopper of us all (wink.)|
|The Children's department - where a kid can be a kid - and where I decided I need a yellow fire hydrant somewhere in my home, lol!|
|Menswear - gah, if only I could convince The Mr to wear a tie!!|
|Have you heard of raw denim? It's pure, unadulterated fabric - no whiskers, no stone-washing, no "special effects", treatments or softening. It's the pair of denim you can truly make your own - the hard way, lol. A very helpful associate explained to us that to make your denim "your own" you don't wash it - you freeze it to kill any germs/bacteria (and other rules!) I'm old, and this simply reminds me of the good old days when you could buy a pair of Levi's and over time it would conform to the shape of your....well, butt. (p.s. that processed whiskering and fading often is terribly unflattering anyway!)|
|Getting into the Holiday spirit in the Deck the Halls store - and wishing this little treat were real!|
|A tribute to the new Sea Life Aquarium.....|
|What my Tree should really be decorated with......|
|The red bag (with lots of goodies) at least half of us were carrying around that evening (the horror, lol!)|
If you haven't been to Halls Crown Center - I highly recommend it. It has a fabulous price point, friendly associates and a great selection. Thanks again Halls, for a great night out with the girls (bloggers!)
