MJ My Way #matildajane

One of the things I most love about Matilda Jane is that the possibilities are absolutely endless when it comes to styling and mixing and matching! Many of my “vintage” MJC pieces mix so well with all these great new pieces from fall. There is something special about these clothes. The soft beautiful fabrics are always a bonus, but they also put a little pep in your step and just make you feel better. Oh the magic of Matilda Jane. ☺

I have to tell you that I loved all the feedback from the social media blog post. With fall pieces on their way to your doorstep, we thought it would be the perfect time to start a little something new with the Friends Forever collection. MJ My Way is the chance for us to showcase your favorite pieces on your darling daughters (or even you)! The sweet photos that you take are just too good to not be shared! So keep an eye on our MJC and 435 Instagram accounts. We might repost photos of you and your cuties wearing MJ your way.

There is nothing better than to see our clothing brought to life by you, our fabulous customers! Don’t forget to use #matildajane, so that we can see all these wonderful photos. I can’t wait to see what you all come up with! Have fun and happy posting.

Ciao for now,

News from Platinum: Cafeteria Plan

Who doesn’t love a good surprise?

It is that time of year again – Cafeteria Plan. There are so many things I love about these uploads.

  • I love the element of surprise. What you receive is totally random! The anticipation of what’s to come is half the fun. I used to ask my mom to take me to the Sanrio store at our mall so I could get a “grab bag.” It didn’t matter what was in it, as long as it was Hello Kitty!
  • Hidden gems. There are things in Cafeteria Plan NO ONE has ever seen! There could be alternate fabrics or quantities too small for a normal upload. Who’s feeling lucky??
  • Memory lane. Every piece of Platinum has a memory. As we folded and sorted all the pretty Plat that had been tucked away for months, it was hard not to stop and think about the day a piece was designed, then cut, sent to the seamstress, then returned, buttoned, and finally uploaded. So many stories, it’s like looking through a photo album.
  • New discoveries. This is your chance to try something that you passed up before, something you were not sure about, but had potential to be a favorite. I also think it is a great time to be introduced to Platinum!

So here’s the deal:

  1. We will upload like normal – hop on to matildajaneplatinum.com tomorrow and start carting!
  2. This time you will only see one image in each category: Dresses, Tops, Bottoms, and Bags. You will also see special prices!
  3. Pick a size, and you are done!

Then it’s our turn! We pick at random, then send the goodies off to you!

Show us some of your favorite Cafeteria Plan finds on our Facebook page, and we will send you something extra special 🙂

Cafeteria Plan is sold as is, no refunds, no exchanges.

Have fun! And happy carting!

OMG, YES! The Sanrio Store. I loved those grab bags. I also loved those little plastic toys they would tape to your bag everytime you purchased something. Awh…memories. 🙂

Kate Stefani - August 12, 2015 - 4:03 pm
