WIW : Day One @ Motto

Hi Ladies,

Today was my first shift at Motto.  It was a trial shift and part way through the manager called me into the office and offered me regular shifts:)  So I said YES :)  

I had the BEST day.  Loved interacting with the customers and helping them put together beautiful outfits.  I made quite a few sales over the four hours and picked up the point of sale program very easily.  

After my shift, knowing I had regular work coming, I did buy a few pieces and now have a little capsule for starters, which I will share as I wear them.  

So today I wore:

Lace Bell Top - Motto
Skirted Leggings - Motto
Sandals - Rubi

Master 12 liked the top and said it looked like a snow blizzard!!

Thanks for looking.

xxx Deborah

    Glad, but not surprised that your first day went so well and that you  have regular work. I think you'll love it.
    I like the outfit too. You look ethereally delicate in the second picture.

    You look fabulous. I am so happy for you landing a job you are so well suited to. You are going to be sooo good at this job !

    Congratulations! I bet online sales go up, too : )

    I'm not surprised at your instant success at all - in fact, I'm sure the manager is keeping her eye on you for more use !  I like your first use of pattern ...pretty, softer, yet still "you" with the angular shape.

    Have fun at your new job - and rest up those feet and legs in-between !

  • approprio replied 5 years ago

    Fantastic! Congratulations on the new job, it sounds brilliant. I'm sure you'll be a huge success at it. I like the sound of your new work-for-clothes model. 

    And of course, you look as fabulous as ever.

    Congrats! It's clear you enjoyed the day - it comes across in your post. So nice to see a lightness and happiness. The outfit is great. I am always stunned at how you put the right pieces together to have fluidity and structure at the same time and not get overwhelmed. Adore the outfit and looking forward to seeing more from this brand. The customers are lucky to have you as a sales assistant that's for sure!

  • Jenn replied 5 years ago

    You look great! Congrats on the new job! You have such a great eye and seem to inherently "get" the Motto line, so I have no doubt you'll be an amazing ambassador for them!

  • replied 5 years ago

    To be able to help people look their best sounds like a great job. You seem like an excellent ambassador for the brand as well. I'm sure the shop owners are lucky to have you.

    You look fab!

  • catgirl replied 5 years ago

    What a perfect outlet for your creativity!  If I had time I would love to have a job like this one day a week. :)

  • lyn67 replied 5 years ago

    Congrats for the new job and looking really sooo fab in your new things!:-) Wow, your are now their real life super model! And it's so much more inspiring for the buyers -you will skyrocket their sales :-).

  • replied 5 years ago

    Way to go! You look great, and I'm glad your first day went fabulously well. :)

  • Peri replied 5 years ago

    I can imagine that you would be perfect for this job! I for one would sure love to come in a store and be lucky enough to have you help me! That would be one good shopping day I know.

  • Cerinda replied 5 years ago

    Congrats!  They're fortunate to have you.  Have fun!

  • Susie replied 5 years ago

    I worked retail for many years (many years ago!) and I did enjoy the customer interaction, for the most part. I think you are a natural for this job and I'm so glad it went well! I LOVE the new top!

  • Sara L. replied 5 years ago

    You look fabulous!  I'm glad you had a successful first day.  I'm curious about your shoes though.  Did the heel height bother you at all?  It seems like some people can wear heels when on their feet all day and others can't. My hairdresser wears 4" heels all day but I know that would kill my feet.

  • Suz replied 5 years ago

    GORGEOUS top on you. I love it -- the pattern is "you" even though you are not big on pattern. Perfection. So glad you had a great day, and not at all surprised. 

  • replied 5 years ago

    Congrats on your first day Deb! Sounds like you wowed them. Love your snow storm patterned top. Fabulous!

  • Beth Ann replied 5 years ago

    This is your kind of pattern, Deborah!  They are fortunate to have you. I think retails jobs, when you're selling good stuff and working for good people, can be good for the mood.  Helping people, doing light physical sorting and not having huge responsibilities can be terrific combination!

  • kerlyn replied 5 years ago

    Gorgeous!  And congrats on your new job!

  • Brooklyn replied 5 years ago

    Congratulations! I bet you are great at the new job. And how lucky the people in your local area are to have you available to give styling advice. You look fab - nice to see you in a print!

  • Style Fan replied 5 years ago

    They are lucky to have you.  I would love to visit you and have your help.  Great outfit.  Looking forward to seeing more.

  • Janet replied 5 years ago

    Wow, congrats on the new gig, and you totally look the part. Great outfit.

  • Cococat replied 5 years ago

    You look fabulous Deborah.

    You are such a great example of how to wear their items in an on-trend, stylish way. They will probably want you there all of the time!

  • Carole replied 5 years ago

    What a great outfit...I would love to have your help shopping...no wonder they love you!

  • Joy replied 5 years ago

    Congratulations! They had better stock lots of the pieces you buy and wear because every customer who sees you is going to want to copy your outfit.

  • Firecracker replied 5 years ago

    Way to go! The first-day outfit is beautiful on you. I can see you inspiring many purchases; clearly the manager sees it too!

  • Lyn D. replied 5 years ago

    It went just as I thought it would!
    I am glad that you enjoyed your first shift, from now on it will be easier too.
    Love your new top :)
