Hello my Lovlies!
I mentioned a few days ago that I would be attending the fabulous grand-opening event of the new Ann Taylor concepts store here in Tulsa. Well, the event was this past Saturday and it was soooo amazing! The store is so incredibly chic, beautiful, elegant and is in my opinion very “couture-inspired”.
With this new store being located in a mall, at first you might think that this is just like any other Ann Taylor store; even though you love Ann and believe it is fine, modern and high quality fashion, you’re probley thinking “it’s a chain store and they’re all the same”. Sister….boy are you wrong!
When I said a few days ago think “champagne, glamor and chandeliers” when it came to this new store, I wasn’t kidding!
When I walked into the event, I was enveloped by chic music, appetizers and a feeling of fashion (can you get a “feeling of fashion”? Well, if you can I can definitely say I did). I didn’t feel like I was in Tulsa at all, but like I had just walked into a high-end designer store in New York.
As I clicked my stilettos further into the glamorous store, I “brushed elbows” with the likes of Tulsa powerhouse fashion editor-in-chief and owner of Chic Galleria, Beth B. Anderson and other fashionable women. I was greeted by some of the store’s stylists, took in the white porcelain-like maple floors and gazed at the amazingly elegant and beautiful crystal chandeliers.
This is not your typical Ann Taylor store, but so much more.
One of the first things you see when you first walk in the store is the “runway”.
Now, I don’t know about you, but I am attracted to anything sparkly! Behold “all that glitters”.
Now, you didn’t think that a store of this “fashion caliber” wouldn’t participate in one of the season’s hottest trends, did you?
This by far has got to be the best way I’ve seen yet of accessorizing with faux fur! Once you take in the gorg LBD, check out the faux fur clutch! So chic!
As I ventured on and drank in the beautiful fashion, I kept coming across not only versatile, chic and on trend pieces, but delicate and uber feminine pieces as well that just made me feel pretty and girly. Nothing wrong with that in my book!
This was one of those pieces and took me back at little bit to Jason Wu’s NYFW collection from this year a bit……
This is the “New Ann”; perhaps you’ve seen of the new ads with Demi Moore? The Tulsa store follows in the footsteps of select few cities as New York, Boston, Miami, Boca Raton, Atlanta and Seattle and is the only concept store in Oklahoma. This is “New York with a touch of European flair”.
” The new Ann Taylor is chic and stylish, with a more fashion forward direction to meet the needs of today’s modern working woman, “ CFDA member and head designer Lisa Axelson said of the concept stores. “Our new concept stores are a reflection of our new fashion direction. They are light, modern, feminine and are designed to showcase the full Ann Taylor collection while making our client feel comfortable and welcome”.
Case and point:
So, if you like fashion forward couture inspired fashion, your own personal stylist, luxurious crystal chandeliers, gorgeous white-washed maple hardwood floors, modern tufted furniture and sleek feminine fixtures, then this is your store!
I can’t say enough about this new store! It is amazing and I suggest you go check it our right now! For more information, visit the new Ann Taylor blog .
