Let’s listen in.
Style Mayvin: What’s up, everybody. Queen City, everybody, it’s your girl T-Strong, aka, Stye Mayvin, and I’m going to start doing these video blogs for Creative Loafing. If you’ve been following my blog for Creative Loafing you know that all I talk about is fashion, so I though what better way to kick off my new segment than here at Lotus Boutique, one of my favorite places and I’m here with Jackie Rodney. How are you, my dear?
Jackie: I’m doing good, how you do?
Style Mayvin: I’m good, I’ve very excited about this upcoming CIAA. So I know you’ve had tons of girls coming in to buy things. What are they looking for?
Jackie: CIAA, there’s a lot of events going on, daytime, night time, so it’s kind of a mix of everything. Definitely anything that stands out because you know we get such big crowds in the city. So what’s going on is a lot of bling, a lot of pop of colors.
Style Mayvin: And I love that you just said that because it’s such a good segue into bling, which this is here at Lotus Boutique. And then also pop of colors, this is also here at Lotus Boutique. And as is my beautiful necklace that I love so much. So you’ve had some girls coming it, so what’s the most positive thing, has it been dresses?
Jackie: I’d say definitely dresses for night time, like going out, again, a lot of bling, anything shiny that stands out.
Style Mayvin: You guys also have shoes.
Style Mayvin: I was so excited to see so many pop of color shoes as well, so we love that. And you’re wearing green pants, so do you guys have any color bottoms? Because you know that’s a huge thing?
Jackie: We just got them in. Purple, wide leg, flowing pants.
Style Mayvin: I saw those. If you’re trying to get them, don’t, because I totally want them! But that’s another great thing about Lotus. You guys don’t have tons and tons of things, like when you go to the mall. You ladies know, when you go out to Macy’s you grab something – not to say I don’t love Macy’s, beceause I do – but you grab something and they may have 24 or 48 pieces of something so you very well might see yourself, that’s not going to happen here.
Jackie: No, we only carry 5 or 6 of each style so you know not everyone in Charlotte’s going to have the same look as you.
Style Mayvin: Definitely. Well, I’m going to wrap it up with that. I absolutely love Lotus, I absolutely love Jackie as well. Stay tuned, there’s going to be so much more coming from me. I’m out!
