Suprise Source: Soft Surroundings

I am not one to hoard sources for a good deal or great finds. I remember finding an amazing long black Dolce & Gabana gown at Filene’s Basement (RIP) in 2002 marked down from $1,900 to $99.  When complimented on it while wearing it I would blurts out “Oh My God! Filene’s Basement! Like 95% off! You need to go!” instead of just mysteriously saying “thank you”. As a designer you’re supposed to keep your sources rather secretive, but I have a really hard time doing that too. Whenever I find something good I want to share it and spread the wealth.  And sometimes that just means finding out a catalog you typically recycle actually has some really great home stuff! I got a Soft Surroundings catalog the other day- yes, the one full of comfy clothes and jammies for mature ladies- and found all of this great home stuff! Woah!
