Behind the Scenes in Vegas!

Happy Monday!

We hope everyone's week is starting out great!  I know we're excited to have Whitney back from market and got even more excited when we saw all her pictures of what is coming to Material Girls SOON!  We wanted to show y'all some pictures to give you a sneak peek of what you'll see coming in over the next few months and into Spring 2012 (YIKES!)!  

We're trying to really stay on top of getting our customers EXACTLY what they want, and in working on that we're getting better at sending out emails to let you know when something you were interested in arrives!  So, anything you see in this post that you want to know about when it arrives just shoot us an email at and mention what item it is and we'll put you on a list to notify!
Here is where Whitney stayed while at market

All market or as we call them "shows" in the fashion world have names, the one we visit in Vegas is called, Magic!  Here is a big shot of just SOME of the showrooms! You can see why it takes a few days to go through it all!

Every showroom is different is it's so exciting walking from room to room seeing what is HOT for this season and also getting a peek at what Spring 2012 will bring! Here's Whitney checking out some new handbags by one of our fav lines, Deux Lux!
 While we're talking about Deux Lux, here is a shot of what is to come for Resort 2011, which will be in our stores at the end of November JUST in time for Christmas presents!! We're in LOVE with this collection, which includes fabulous new duffles, iPad cases, makeup bags and ID holders!

All Material Girls' LOVE anything fur and a fur vest is still our #1 favorite items for cooler temps!  In fact, a stylist on The Today Show just this morning was asked what her go-to must-have item for her Fall wardrobe was this season and guess what she picked?! Yup, a fur vest!  Expect to see this one in Material Girls soon! 

All the girls are so excited about this new boot line Whitney picked up!

Another bonus of attending market in Vegas is a snagging some to die for couture look-alike pieces like this one we found that is just like a Missoni print that costs thousands of dollars!

We also get to see Spring 2012 at market and it just makes us SO ready to see all the bright colors again, here is a peek of what is to come for Roberta Oaks this Spring!  You know we love her unique sense of design and style paired with whimsical colors and prints!

For our Fashinstas and trendsetters, we want to know are you ready to carry this look in Mississippi for Fall 2011?  We ARE!  We found these at Chinese Laundry and we're ready to see them in-stores!  Lace-Ups are back this season so get ready!

And for those of you who missed our FAVORITE find when we posted it on Facebook, we'll end with these DY look a likes at a MUST HAVE price of only around $34.95! These should be arriving in a couple weeks or less so if you haven't gotten on the list yet, just email us at and we'll make sure you're the first to know when these arrive!

So hopefully you can tell we had a SUCCESSFUL trip to market and it'll just be a short while until all these hot looks will be arriving at Material Girls!  See you in the stores soon or on Facebook! We'll be sure to post pics when each of these arrive!

Happy Shopping! Love,

Whitney reporting from Las Vegas Market!!

Good Morning Material Girls!

It's Whitney and I'm in Vegas for market this week! 

Girls, I'm SO excited to be at market again... yes that's right, just 3 weeks ago I was in LA for market!!  You know by now that it is my personal mission to bring all my Material Girls fans the BEST of the trends each season and with that, I know I must travel outside of the Southeast to ensure my customers have the most unique and exclusive items and brands!  I commit to you all that I will always travel as far as I need to make sure I get you the best of the best and at the best prices too! 

We went to the jewelry and accessories show yesterday and I got some great new lines so get excited! This morning we head out to the apparel show and that's where I'll see some our favorite lines from Basically Me and Judith March to VaVa and Voom!  I can't wait to see what new lines and designers are out at the show this week, it's always fun to meet a celebrity designer or discover an awesome new line from the West coast and bring it back to y'all in Mississippi! 

I want to make sure I keep connected with my customers, so I want to hear from YOU!  While I'm here at market, I'll be checking my email and Facebook constantly looking for you to let me know what trends, styles, and pieces you want me to keep a look out for while at market!  So, please feel FREE to keep the suggestions and requests coming! I'm giving y'all my personal email address, to email me anything from brands, even to pictures from magazines of items you want me to try to bring back! You know I'll do my very best to bring back EXACTLY what you're dying for this season!

Ok, we're off to market for the day, and trust me... it'll be a long day of shopping, buying, and excitement, but I'll give a full report of all my finds in the morning!  Wish me happy shopping!

Talk to y'all soon,
