Shopping for Clothing The Emotional Roller Coaster

You do know that shopping is not simply the act of purchasing clothing or fashion accessories, don't you?  Well, if you do not understand this it is time to wize up.  Actually purchasing an items is only a small portion of the "experience" envolved with shopping.  Some times, the hunt for the perfect outfit is most critical.  Now, does that part of the process ofter you great excitement at the moment you actually "find" the item you want to purchase. The reality is that their are many emotional ups and downs during the shopping experience.  At one moment their is great excitement as you sport a terrific blouse on display on the store mannequin.  Followed by an instant sense of frustration when you learn that the clothing store does not acutally have your size in stock.
 
Speaking of frustration, what is worse then finding your size on the rack, but then after trying the item on, you find out that it does not actually fit well... Boy, that sucks.
 
Anyway, my point is that purchasing clothing is far more then simply picking out an item, taking out your credit card, and buying the item.  The reality is that often times, their is an emotional roller coaster along the way.  After all, I think the rush may be part of why we like to shop for clothing.

OK, here is how Fashion Bug explained the size, "The sizes XL and OX are in fact different. An OX provides more room in various areas of the garment such as the body, armholes, sleeve length and shoulders. And a 1X have even…

WHO’S NEXT and PREMIERE CLASSE January 2015

The date is set.

The next edition of the WHO’S NEXT and PREMIERE CLASSE trade shows, will take place from Friday 22nd to Monday 25th January 2016 at Porte de Versailles. 
In the midst of its extensive renovation work, the Paris Expo - Porte de Versailles is keeping its doors open for events. This ambitious modernisation project aims to strengthen the role that Paris holds as tourism market leader with regards to international business. 

The first phase of the renovation concerns halls 1 and 7, the main entrance and the central walkway with the creation of travelators between hall 3 and 4.  

In line with this situation, WHO’S NEXT and PREMIERE CLASSE are having to evolve and transform. The areas are being rethought, reworked, to offer a more fluid experience, a clearer display of the trade shows’ offer. 

By joining forces with Studio GGSV (Curator of the Saint-Etienne Design Biennial 2013) the trade shows guarantee a quality setting and optimal space layout.

The plan is set out in a star sha…
