If you love shoes you likely have multiple pairs of the common basic colours and also your favourite colours. Common basic colours like black, brown or tan and favourite colours are any colour in the rainbow that catch your eye. You know the old shoe lovers saying, “one pair is good, two pairs is too many, and three pairs is not enough.” You’ve likely also heard, “how many pairs of black shoes do you need?” The comeback is, “yes, there black but in my eyes they are different.” Other than the fact I’m way overdue to add another post to my blog, this made me think about a pair of flats I purchased. Are they the same as a pair I already have or are they totally different? I’m not talking about my basic colour or my favourite coloured flats in my Tory collection. I’m referring to colours that are a bit outside my comfort zone. You know the pinks, yellows and golds. These colours can be worn by a women and no one thinks twice but when worn by a guy, eyebrows might be raised. Let’s go back a bit. In March 2015 I bought my first pair of the TB Minnie travel flats and I could sense another collection would be forming. In April 2015 my local Tory Burch sales associate called me to say she had the perfect pair of Minnie’s on hold for me? She wouldn’t say anything else but insisted I needed them to continue evolving the new personal style we both wanted to create for me. I was a bit surprised at the colour but I valued her opinion cuz she knew what would work for me. So metallic gold it was and a comfort zone I was looking to embrace. Now, one year later, Tory is still making the Minnie flats in so many amazing colours. There was a silver pairs that caught my eye so I contacted my Scottsdale Az TB sales associate. She put them on hold for me but also suggested I might like the pearlized gold better. Wait a second, I already have a gold pair. That’s when all this all started. The day I went to try them on my Scottsdale TB SA was wearing her metallic gold Minnie and we compared them to the pearlized gold Minnie. The metallic gold have a holographic look to them and pearlized one are more platinum Ok so after all this blah blah blah both pairs are gold but are totally different. Thanks for reading, hugs Now sit back and enjoy the TB Minnie gold fashion show. Metallic gold Minnie flats. Pearlized gold Minnie flats
Today is my Four Year Toryversary. If your thinking, “what the heck am I talking about.” You’re likely not the only one. What it really means is 4 years ago today (November 23, 2011) I went in search of my first pair of the iconic Tory Burch Reva flats. I still remember it well. I stopped by all the retailers that carried them in the Scottsdale Fashion Square ( or Plaza as it was called back then ) Both Nordstroms and Neimum Marcus had the Revas but I decided to go see the selection at the Tory Burch boutique. Four years ago I would have never imagine how good this decision was going to be. Four years later I’ve created a great collection of Tory products but even more special is the relationships I made with some of the Tory Burch sale associates and other Tory Burch fans and friends like YOU, people who are reading this. You all are wonderful and it means the world to me. Thanks and I love you all. Bri
On April 10 I was super happy, the next day I was leaving for a 20 day vacation in Arizona. I was working afternoon/evening shift and thankfully my lead assigned me the nightly checks on the airplane I would be flying out on in the morning. The airplane was 100% good to go. Sadly there was some issues with the pilots documents which are beyond my control that weren’t up to snuff. I still can’t believe this was my problem but apparently it was. Finally at 2:00 am the issues were solve and I left for home. Only to be back to the airport as a passenger in 4 1/2 hours. Needless to say I didn’t sleep and was run down. Thankfully the awesomeness kicked in. My great flight attendant on the flight down to AZ ensured I was comfy for my sleep for the first 1 1/2 but also gave me a stiff drink before we landed, actually 2. I was next met by my awesome bro and M+D at the airport. I spent the next week with family, friends and very new friends. Again complete awesomeness. Sadly the snowbirds including my Mom and Dad left later in the week. BUT if you look there are amazing people everywhere. The few locals or neighbours, the Starbucks girls, my TB sales girls and of course my online friends who I’ve never met face to face but I’m close to. I guess the whole point is its easy to find a positive everywhere. I never say anything negative. If things are bad I always find a positive. I hope this makes sense and Is not just one on my quirky habits. It’s just what I like to do. I Hope everyone is well and happy. Just wanted so send out some positive vibes.
