The Mistress is getting ready to enter another 50 hour work week. No rest for the weary I tell you. Upon getting back from our DC store to help ready for a visit, it was time to do the store Christmas trim at my own store and that of King Of Prussia. Since then, I have been in Norwalk CT, opening a new opulent store. It s a ton of work, since when the store manager gets the keys, we are walking into basically, four walls. Granted, visual teams and merch teams from the whole company are here, but's it's still a gargantuan job to have it all treated, unpacked, and set before a opening in November of all times!!!! The store opened last Thursday to much fanfare and a huge success. I'll be here till midweek now as after support to work with the visual staff on the daily going ons.Our branch of the company is having another good year...seems the luxury brands are not hurting, unlike our parent company. Our costumers want quality and service. Luckily. I know I do. While I have been exhausted, I can't complain of the hotel , very nice, and it's been swell seeing company family we haven't seen in ages.And the paychecks have been very kind. Here's some projects I worked on from the last two weeks.
The men's fashion mannequins.
Broke my heart to paint this cute giraffe, but it turned out great!
One of many themed holiday gifting giving shops
A children's display
Some of the hotties working on the flooring!!!!

Yesterday I and a another stylist went out and explored the town and was pleasantly surprised by how much this little town had to offer. Norwalk is a city located in southwestern Connecticut, in southern Fairfield County, on the northern shore of Long Island Sound. Norwalk lies within both the New York metropolitan area by half an hour, as well as the Bridgeport metropolitan area. Norwalk was settled in 1649, and is the sixth most populous city in Connecticut. Jacob my roomie suggested exploring the town. It is making a huge come back, and offered many eateries, galleries and pubs, and had a nice fashionable and I dare say in spot a nice hipster crowd.
Leave it to the Mistress to find a nightly watering hole...
And a nice bar with dance floor. When it comes to those two things, I'm like a bloodhound tootes.
While it's been a nice change of weekly pace, and fun, I can't lie..it will be nice to get back in my own bed. I also have to look forward to decorating three private homes for the holidays. Now' where's that darn gin???
