The Confidence Boost That Comes With Retail

Apart from the obvious factors that come with working within retail; kissing goodbye to your weekends, the odd shift patterns, a juicy staff discount - I wanted to have a natter about the (dare I say) slightly deeper factors that come with a working shop front & encountering more than a variety of different faces & personalities on a daily basis.

I've had my fair share of retail employers, from The Body Shop through to high street fashion power troupers such as Topshop & Allsaints & therefore feel that I dipped my toes in a variety of different products, policies & of course customers.
I also discovered that retail is a very peculiar world, as well as pretty weird & wonderful with of course one or two additional shitters thrown in for good measure.
When I say shitters, I mean the gross stock take that is dreaded for every single employee, replenishment hour (which always took stupidly longer than it ever should) & of course the sale preparation.. oh my god…

Dressed up or down, fancy or chilled, night out or night in - I'm pretty convinced that there will be something you can hands down rock! 

There are a handful of smaller boutique style sites popping up all over social media as well as on sponsored posts & I'm too easily lead astray not to click on those dreamy ads. I'm 100% a window shopper, if you would use that term online? But I can spend a ridiculous amount of hours flicking through page after page, filling up a virtual basket & then dreaming/drooling over those fancy garments that are 2-3 working days away from my grasp.

You know the ones, right? Well, Femme Luxeis just …
