New Ann Taylor opens today at International Plaza
For today's excuse to go shopping, we bring you the opening of a new Ann Taylor store in International Plaza!
The press people call it the "NEW Ann in town!" -- a concept store that's a redesign of the traditional Ann Taylor you may be used to. Between all the buzzy PR descriptions (Maple hardwood floors! Crystal chandeliers! Plush carpeting! Luxe ottomans!) the news release includes this interesting new feature: a private lounge area with an oversized touch-screen monitor with access to anntaylor.com.
Sounds pretty cool, but part of me feels like, if I'm going to shop online, why wouldn't I just do it from home? But I guess then I'd miss out on all those luxe ottomans...
Here's what I'm coveting most:
This lightweight dot-patterned blouse would also look great with some dark jeans.
I'd also put it with this lovely yellow skirt. Or pair the skirt with a denim blouse.
Or I can stop ignoring the fact that summer is over and slip into fall with this sleek long-sleeved shell-pattern dress. I'd probably skip the tights, though, and add a pop of color with a string of beads or earrings.
Maybe I'll stop by the store opening today and order them there online (ha!).
