TRY-ON THURSDAY WITH CHICO’S

I am trying something new today. I am not sure how you will like the change, but you never know until you try. Usually, when I do a try-on session, I take a couple of photos of each item to put on the blog. Then I will write a description of the item and give you the link. I also do a short video of the item, and I upload that to Instagram stories. Today, I decided to bring the videos to the blog instead of still photos. The description of the product is more thorough, and you can see how the items stretch, etc. I will still put the links under each video to make it easier for you to find the items. I look forward to hearing which version you like best. Have fun watching the videos, and I might have saved some of the best ones to the end. Lol!

//Brigitte Back-Slit Ankle Pants in Black //

//Bootcut Jeans in Ladybug Indigo //

HUGE Sale on these.

I tried to find her outfit to link to, but there are just too many items that have a Unicorn on them.

This is NOT a paid advertisement. Lol! When she started talking, I cringed. You never know what children are going to say. Then, when she said her NeeNee was pretty, I thought she was going to show you how to put on makeup. I have a drawer of makeup that is just for her, so she plays in it when she comes to visit.

R+F decided to waive all of the enrollment fees for becoming a Preferred Customer until the end of the month. I have also decided to continue giving a 20.00 discount. But, instead of the discount being on Lash Boost only, it can do on any order placed as a new PC.

Step 1, go to the website and put any product that you are interested in in your cart. If your order totals 250.00, then R+F will also gift you a FREE Micro-dermabrasion Paste jar. Step 2, go to your shopping cart to checkout. For Step 3, be sure to check the box that says JOIN PC PERKSStep 4, fill out your billing and shipping info and continue the checkout process. You are done!!! I’ll be sending out all of the reimbursement money once the special is over.

How is your memory???

Have you done any of the following? Walked into a room and forgot why you went into the room? Have you driven by the place that you were supposed to turn off? Or, maybe you have been telling a story and forgot what you were saying???

    This was great. I always love the try-on sessions but it was particularly helpful seeing details and fit as you moved about. Emerson is adorable! She clearly loves her NeeNee. What else could you possibly ask for?

    For me, I like the photos instead of videos. And not to be rude….? the brown, black and white pants remind of cow hide. Not as flattering as others you chose.

  8. I love the video’s in your IG Stories but for me, these were harder to see…smaller. Personally, I think I’d prefer to just see video’s in your stories of your try-on sessions rather than here. I’ve loved your format all of these years. You’re an excellent writer and have some pretty funny stories and incidents from real life to tell us. I will miss that if you switch totally to video’s. So I guess what I’m saying is….don’t mess with a good thing! Lol

    Loved the videos. Enjoyed your comments and details about each piece and outfit and enjoyed the length as my attention span is short! Emmy was adorable as well!

    I did enjoy the videos so much! For the blog though, I think a combination of maybe more pictures and possibly one video would be better.

      I liked the videos because it did help demonstrate the fit and describe the fabric more fully. I agree a combination of pictures and videos would be great. I am not on Instagram so the videos are fun, especially when your Mini me is with you but I like the pictures showing the complete outfits since I can scroll back and forth more easily. Love the stories though so NEVER give those up!

    I like the photos better. It’s great to scroll through quickly and to also keep for future reference on an outfit I really liked. Unfortunately for me, sometimes the sound doesn’t work on videos and it also takes longer to view.

    Love your blog! If we lived in the same town, I feel like we’d be friends! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don’t change the format to all videos. I read the blog at work, and there’s no way I can watch a video at work. Your granddaughter is the cutest, and I love your sweet relationship with her. Thanks for your efforts! They are appreciated!!!

    If I had to.choose, I prefer the photos as it’s not as time consuming during my morning coffee session! We turn on the local news and get caught up on social media then. I appreciate you trying different formats for us though since we all learn differently! I LOVE your blog, your style and your family stories too♡

    I enjoy the videos, but I would rather see your finished outfits. We all love to see what shoes you’ve worn and what jewelry you put with it. So perhaps you could do the video of the specific item, but then finish off with a complete look.

    A nice change of pace. I like the still shots with the full outfit and descriptions on a more consistent basis. It would be way too time consuming for there to be videos each day. So maybe video Thursday and then still finished pics for the rest. I do love your style and your comments. Your granddaughter is gorgeous and so poised. I don’t really do IG but maybe I should. Thank you for all your words of wisdom on style.

    Tania, I loved the Chico’s try on session videos! Very helpful to hear your impressions of the clothes and see them on an actual person! Felt like I was shopping with a friend! Thanks for posting!! Would love to see maybe JJill or Talbots, too? Maybe, could you show some of these items you are trying on in a capsule format, to show outfit ideas to mix and match?

    i like the videos but i honestly prefer the still pictures of your whole outfit ensemble. I steal sooooo many wonderful fashion ideas from you and am always getting great compliments of how “put-to-gether” I always look…. even in casual wear. I’m 62 years old and have always been afraid that I might be dressing too “youthy” but seeing all of your daily posts with the various fashion ideas you have really helps keep me “in style” and looking FABulous!!!! I love your style and the way you accessorize…. i love love love BLING!!!!!

    Thanks for trying something new, but I really like the photos only. Unfortunately, I don’t have a lot of free time to watch all the videos (I watched Emerson’s from beginning to end!), and I like seeing the finished look. I know this has to be a lot of work for you, so I’ll take what I get and I’ll enjoy it either way. I think Instagram is better for videos, but I know they have to be shorter.

    I loved the videos and hope that of do more of them! I think the highlight was Emersyn’s video. My favorite part is probably how she was telling us if we ever wanted to know how you get so pretty 🙂

    I didn’t have the patience to read all of the comments but this post reminded me of when we would ask customers what they preferred…it was always half and half, no clear choice. Do what works best for you but I like the photos, I was distracted by the way your face looked before the video started! ha.

    I enjoyed your videos but perhaps continue to keep on with your usual written format. I was somewhat surprised I enjoyed the videos more than I thought but you definitely give more info about the items and how it looks on a real person, so continue perhaps once a week would be great.

    Maybe if it could be closer. I don’t know, just a suggestion.

    I love the try-on videos! I especially love Chico’s! Those Brigitte pants with the back slit (10 times fast!) are really cute,. I just added them to my Chico’s cart along with that animal print blouse. I have a few leopard print tops/blouses this season but I really like those bishop sleeves. Emerson is so stinkin’ cute! Tell her I thought she did a wonderful job on her video try-on session. ❤️

    I like the videos, but they do take longer to watch, and as someone else mentioned, I tend to read blogs at work during my lunch break and don’t like the sound to bother anyone else (although, I’m self employed so can read blogs any old time I like with no boss standing behind me, but lunchtime is usually when I end up doing so). Plus, I’m on Instagram, so I can watch the videos there if I want. I could see maybe sticking with your usual format, but posting videos once a week or every other week for those who aren’t on Instagram. After all, it is nice to hear and see our favorite bloggers in action!

    Videos are perfect for “try on sessions”. You can give more thorough opinions and details. Viewers are able to see how the clothes really fit as you move. Still photos are better for complete outfit/styling ideas. They can be viewed quickly, saved, and studied for those who want to “copy” the look..

    I really liked the videos! I usually read your blog as part of my morning routine. I knew I wouldn’t have time to watch the videos in the early part of my day so I went back to look at them after work. I enjoyed hearing you describe what you liked (or didn’t) about the individual pieces.

    It was a nice change up to see you debating whether or not something was going to work for you versus seeing you all put together perfect like we usually do.
