Go to any shopping centers in California and you are bound to see one thing. From the Central Valley, Santa Barbara, Morro Bay, Pismo, Monterrey and San Francisco, Californians take fashion shopping seriously. In the past few months, I had the privilege of traveling through some of these cities. What I found was that if any of these high-end boutiques were left open all day and all night, there would be enough shoppers to come shopping. It would be a 24-hour shopping spree. Well, oh well, shoppers are happy with the Winter schedule which adds a few more hours to the stores' schedule any way. The point is that one never gets tired looking for this elusive dress, this great black, yellow or turquoise dress seen on a superstar or one of the Desperate Housewives actresses.
Shopping for clothing and cosmetics or all kinds of beauty products is so hot in the malls of America and shopping centers that some stores resort to guiding traffic in and out of the stores. And sometimes, shoppers have to put up with a long wait before they can see a hot beautician who will apply a few samples on their face. At high-end clothing stores such as Anthropologie, Bebe Sport, Lucky Brand Jeans and cosmetics shop Sephora, young and mature shoppers mingle. The quest for the right fashion and beauty is one. If one of these stores does not exist in a community, shoppers are known to travel to the city where these stores are open. For the longest time, shoppers from the Central Valley used to commute to San Francisco to shop for upscale clothing and cosmetic products. Now with the opening of these stores in the Valley, the money spent on gas will go towards the purchase of more dresses and beauty products.
What kind of feelings does one get shopping at any of these stores?
Are you interested in shopping for your prom, quincenera and homecoming accessories?
Anthropologie is owned by Urban Outfitters and sells women's clothing and home decor. If you can't find what you are looking for at Anthropologie, then you have other choices at the other boutiques and stores. My daughter enjoys going to Sephora. That's where she buys perfume, makeup and other hair products. Now, if you want to get the most recent tank tops, the hottest ones, you have to go to BEBE SPORT. It's a division of bebe Stores clothing line. It sells tank tops and T-shirts with its logo on the front. As far as Lucky Brand Jeans, you will have your fill. These stores are into fashion forward merchandising.
