A couple of Sundays ago, I was asked to co-host a brunch for Sears at the Roosevelt Hotel - What a fun place filled with stories of haunted rooms and paranormal sightings. I find them hilarious and actually quite terrifying all at the same time. Not something I'd like to encounter in the middle of night, but I will save my posts about the other side for another day. Back to the brunch. Yvonne and I gathered a group of fantastic bloggers for an early afternoon of mimosas, food and laughs. Along the way, we learned a lot about Sears and their amazing programs and opportunities to save. Their Back-to-School fall collection is so much fun, especially for the college set. It runs the gamut of the traditional preppy Sears style to a more Hollywood look with the Kardashians. It's not the Sears we up grew up with for sure. Remember the Sears catalog? I would ear mark the pages then ask my mom to take me to the Fordham Road location. I wanted it all. To my dismay, I would only walk out with a jacket, shoes and backpack. Year after year. What did I wear to school, you ask? A uniform. A green plaid uniform. Head-to-toe polyester. Boo. I think that may be why I headed over to Sears this weekend and bought every glittery, pink item I could find. Not for me. I have a sister in Ecuador, who is nine years old. One of my greatest joys is sending her packages with essentials and tons of cute things to wear. In my case, I have to mail the packages, but Sears has an amazing national program for parents who have kids in college or in schools outside of their state. You buy online. Your son/daughter picks up the items at his/her Sears location. And done. I thought that was a great idea.
So, are you all done shopping?(Images: Some mine. Some Nicole's)
