Okay, so this was hands down the all time best, coolest, most dreamy, most delicious, most blissful, most exciting fieldtrip of all times. McKaylah has always wanted to be a fashion designer and luckily for us we have a good friend in the fashion industry. Our friend Ana works for Free People/Urban Outfitters/Anthropologie, but for the Free People design department. She gave us a great tour a few days ago around the offices and even let the girls see where they do the photography shoots, letting the girls get some pictures taken by a photographer and later we went to the accessories department and got to make a Free People wrist cuffs they are putting in the stores. McKaylah was so excited! Okay, I was, too.

our friend Krystal was overseeing a fitting on a "fit model" who is a perfect size 6 and let us watch what they do, how they plan lengths, etc.
It was amazing to see all that goes into producing such a huge, popular clothing line. From the conception of a new skirt to it arriving in the store, it was pretty impressive the amount of people and time it takes to make it all happen. Thanks Ana and everyone!
