Thanks for stopping in. This blogging thing is brand new to me, yet it’s something I wish I started years ago as I truly love snooping for great deals on gorgeous items and sharing them with you. For those of you you don’t know me – my name is Amy Lage. I am mama to two tiny clothes horses, wife to the best guy I know, former off-price clothing buyer, current self proclaimed fashion guru with a passion for trend right & classic styles at fabulous prices. I’m hoping you’ll tag along for the ride and enjoy this blog almost as much as I know I will enjoy writing it. My goal is to make shopping a joyful experience.
So am I legit? Where do I get off sharing these finds with you? Here’s a brief bio and you can decide……I got my start in the Fashion Industry at age 20 as an intern for the TJX companies, which ended with me getting an offer to join their Buyer Training Program. There I fell head over heels for the world of off price buying. I mean who doesn’t love a deal – right? After about a year I found myself in yearning for the Big City and joined Loehmann’s as an Assistant Buyer. Two short years (and lots of handwork) later, I was promoted to Buyer! I was living my dream: responsible for a 50 million dollar business, spending many days a week in the NY Garment Center, and traveling to CA, Paris, & Milan multiple times a year. I was honestly in heaven! After about 5 years later, I made the move to the power house of upscale off-price – Century 21 Department Stores and there I stayed until the birth of my oldest daughter. The long hours and travel commitments of my job didn’t mesh well with having an infant – so I chose her (my greatest design yet!) and been thankful for that decision ever since. However, I have always missed this world and my past career. A year and a half ago I became a LuLaRoe Fashion Consultant to scratch that itch, but I still yearn for a bit more. After seven years out of the hustle and bustle of the retail industry, my passion is still so strong that I decided to share it with all of you!
