Do company’s still practice Bring Your Kid To Work Day? Is that even a thing anymore?
Well – yesterday it was for me. With summer break still holding on it’s hard to part ways with my lovely daughters before they go back to school. I don’t want to waste one moment of time. So instead of letting them hang home alone on this fine day, I made them trek up to The St. Paul RiverCentre for the Northstar Fashion Exhibitors trade show.
Luckily it wasn’t a busy day at the show so they didn’t create too big of a distraction for others. Plus there was a catered buffet option for all those attending the event – this kept their attention for a good hour or so. Although I’m quite certain I would’ve been embarrassed by my middle daughter’s dessert plate piled as high as physically possible. Sometimes I decide to ignore certain minor battles to win the bigger war. And this was that time. They sat quietly and all got along while I shopped the booths in peace. I deemed the trip a success!
It was fun for the girls to experience their first apparel trade show. They got to oversee the buyers walk up and down the aisles; exploring the booths and taking notes while the vendors wrote up orders and pulled together outfits. Witnessing all of the processes behind the retail scene is such a good experience for these young minds. No wonder they created Bring Your Kid To Work Day.
Of course as we left, the girls had to take a few outfit pics for me. This exercise isn’t anything new though – it’s old hat to them. Excuse the grainy iphone snaps – I ran out of the house so fast I left my big camera on the counter. Even if the pictures aren’t the greatest, these pants sure are! I’m head over heels in love. High waisted, pleated wide legs. They look like a skirt but walk like a pant. I can’t tell you how many compliments I received on them yesterday from both buyers and vendors alike. And the best part is that we just got them in the shop this week! They are available in both navy and black. Stop by today to get yours before they’re gone!
