Maybe it is because I reached the dreaded 60, or that I let my hair go gray, or that I am about ready to have a hip replacement ! I am determined to not look like I am trying to relive my twenties or even more (maam can I help you?) not look like a granny. I love shopping my favorite local boutiques like Tancredi & Morgen and Warmth Company, but I find now that I am a gimp I am searching more and more for online sources. Enter Details Direct. I stumbled upon them because they had so many of the brands I have come to love. For some reason my order wouldn’t go through. I called them and I ended up speaking to the darling owner Mickey Judkins. We began discussing fashion and I thought to myself. I want to do a post on her! She is my kinda woman!
Planet Polka Tee
Mickey opened her first clothing store the same day she registered for her junior year of college. She planned to go to law school but after interning in a law office changed her mind. Her storefront Details has been serving the community of Eau Claire Wisconsin for thirty years. Her business grew by leaps and bounds and in 1995 she launched detailsdirect.com.
Mickey’s mission is to meet the wardrobe needs of the modern woman with a minimum investment of her time. She believes every woman has her own sense of style and encourages her customers to express that.
I loved this Zoe Shirt from Tulip and couldn’t find it anywhere else. It is really lightweight which is great for this time of year.
I wanted to buy this Tulip Claudine Top as well but I was worried that it wasn’t long enough in the front (to cover the bum)
While talking to Mickey she commented “don’t you have the Sympli miniskirt”? The word miniskirt alone made me shudder. She said “you wear it over the Sympli leggings if the top is too short”….clever…huh? So you buy one of these….
|And layer it over these|
Do you see where I am going? Think Spanx over leggings…Genius!! I decided to order the tunic and I was debating over the miniskirt/leggings duo. Guess what I received in the mail? The miniskirt…now I have to order those darn leggings!! Thanks Mickey!
I was really tempted to buy these Cydwoq Tomkat Sandals
and this Planet Jumper…
If you have chilly evenings on occasion like we do here this clever two way pima cotton number from Planet would be great. How clever is this?
Eileen Fisher always has great essentials for work. I love this jacket.
or this little black dress that could also be paired over leggings
Stop by the details direct website. I think you will get into all kinds of trouble. If you have to call you might even run into the darling Mickey. I think she is my new fashion guru.
Do you have a go to boutique or online source that you would like to share? We would love to hear about it. Happy Weekend and Happy Shopping!
