From the VITA website:
Vita\v(i)-ta\ pronounced VEE-tah. It is of Latin origin, and means “the happy life.” The ultimate in perfection. An amazing mother, beautiful, intelligent, sexy and fun person that you can’t help but want to be around all the time.
I like that! And when I received an email inviting me to the grand opening of VITA, a stylish new store for women by Charm City Run, I couldn’t have been more excited. First of all, it’s Charm City Run. Which is the store that I probably spend the most money in every year besides Target. Then…of all…the style they promote is exactly what I wish I could wear every day: Fun, fashion forward pieces that are comfortable, but still super cute.
I was one of the first people there and my plan was to only stop by for a few minutes because on Thursdays I have Betty and bedtime stories rule all on those nights. My first impression upon entering the store was a very good one. Their space is fabulous. And the clothes. Just give me one of everything please.
The welcome was very warm. They have the nicest sales staff which was not at all surprising to me because everyone I’ve ever encountered at Charm City Run is awesome. I did not originally intend to purchase anything, but as soon as I started browsing I knew my wallet was in major trouble. I picked up two pairs of pants to try on (both unfortunately a little too big, but one of them was so awesome that I almost bought them anyway) and this dress that was so fantastic on the hanger that I crossed my fingers it would look nearly as good once I got it on my body.
I. LOVE. THIS. DRESS. SO comfortable, but still pretty, fun and extremely flattering, which is pretty much the standard for all the clothes they carry.
Another cool thing: Charm City Run’s great rewards program crosses over to VITA as well so the purchases I make at either store go straight to my account. All the more reason to buy more clothes and shoes because obviously I always need new shoes.
If you live near me or find yourself in the Baltimore area for any reason it’s definitely worth it to stop in and check it out!
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! I’ve been taking a bit of a break from blogging and social media lately (as you might have noticed…or not…), but I’m still around!
