Holiday Stocking Stuffer Ideas

It's that time of year!! No worries, Bags That Fit to the rescue! We will help you fill those stockings and give you fashionable gift ideas everyone will love!

Our handmade Vintage-style "Peekaboo Lace" is a fabulous stretch lace sleeve that fits on your calves & peeks out of the top of your boots. Wear them on your leg, over tights, leggings or skinny jeans. With ankle boots, go a smaller size and scrunch them down towards the ankle. They are lightweight, will hold your pants in place & will not create that extra bulk or warmth within the footing of your boots. You won't even feel the extra layer! Wear them over leggings or denim, or simply wear them on just your legs. If you choose to wear them over leggings or denim, go up a size than if it was just on your leg.

They are a cute accessory to dress up any outfit!

Available Colors:

Vintage Grey

Sizes Available:

Small for calves up to 14"
Medium for calves up to 15"
Large for calves up to 16"

Each sleeve is 8" long.....enough for some scrunching and gathering of the lace, if you'd like.

They are the perfect stocking stuffer, add to your wardrobe with more than one color so they can be mixed and matched with your outfit. All ages are wearing these.

Come on down to BTF today! Our shop elves/girls will be happy to help!

Celebrate National BFF Day at BTF

This picture obviously wasn't done by a professional.  I'm sweaty, tired, my shorts are hiked up...defiantely not fashion forward. BUT this is one of my favorite pictures.  Why?  I never thought I'd EVER run Ragnar.  But I did because of the encouragement of my BFF and I have accomplished a lot in my life because of her.

I love this pic because there is my BFF cheering me on at the finish line. It reminds me how blessed I am to have such an amazing person in my life. She constantly picks me up, loves me for who I am and calls me out on my crap. I call her my "twin flame".  Our personalities couldn't be more different but we work. Millions of memories, good/bad/funny/sad. I love that we can finish each others sentences, sense when one is anxious, depressed or just needs chips & salsa.  I love that I can walk into her home without even knocking.  I love that I can call her any time and she WILL be there for me.

Bags That Fit was created because of her.  She helped me take a leap into unknown territory. 5 years later and we're still going.  Over the years we have made wonderful friends in the shop--customers as well as our beautiful shop girls.  I love that we have a place where we can make more friends and memories.

Who's your BFF?

In honor of National Best Friends Day bring a friend to BTF and you each get 20% off one item!  We can't wait to hear your BFF stories!!!

How To Wednesday! Colored Denim is HOT!

There is no denying it...colored denim is here to stay this spring! I can't stop smiling! There is something about color that just makes me happy! After years of wearing blue, black and grey denim--I am more then thrilled at the rainbow of choices available!

What color is your favorite?
This trend is fairly new and for those of you still warming up to it, here are some "How To Wear Colored Tips"

1. Contrast. It's all about contrast. Try a simple neutral pattern and pair it up with a cardi in the same color family--just don't match the blues exactly. Mix & match colors. Try blue and pink, or mustard with navy.

2. White, Black or Neutral. Attention will go to the pants if you keep the colors basic. These blue pants POP against a neutral, soft patterned top. However, when in doubt, wear white! Attention is sure to go to the pants and not seem like overkill!

3. Solids or Low Key Pattern. Patterns are so fun! But when your wearing colored denim be sure NOT to go overboard. An overly pattered shirt will scream LOOK AT ME! You want to draw attention but pick one. Denim or top?

*Secret Tip* Wear the same colored shoes! This tricks the eye and will make your legs look longer!!

4. Keep Accessories Simple! When wearing denim try not to be too matchy, matchy. Let your jeans do the talking. Throw on a spring scarf or simple earrings. Just make sure you don't keep them all the same color! You don't want to look like a blueberry!

5. Keep is casual. Don't go overboard. When wearing color try a denim blazer/jacket or a casual tee.

Spring brings new flowers, new leaves and new beginnings! Why not try a new trend--one that can brighten anyones day! As always, our shop girls are there to help! We are more then happy to help you pull off this new trend and make your closet a colorful rainbow!

Rock the baby doll sock!

Socks with open toed shoes--fashion faux pas? What once was a fashion NO NO has turned into the new hot trend! This look showed up on Oscar de la Renta's sping 2012 runway (and several other designers)

Think of socks as a new fun accessory! They can add a touch of creativity to any outfit and make it romantic, classic, sophisticated, trendy or funky. Best news is when executed RIGHT, socks can update any old shoe! (and yes, they are acceptable for women over 20!)

Here are some tips to rock the look!
1. Bare legs are a MUST! No wearing socks with leggings, jeans or tights.

2. EXPERIMENTATION is KEY! Be creative. Try to match the sock with the color of shoe or try and wear different colors and textures. Mix things together...just try it on before wearing it out!

3. YES, you can wear socks with open toed shoes! But you must make sure you get a sock that doesn't show a seam. Also, make sure the sock is THIN! No big bulky socks with Tevas!

4. Think of the season...pastels for spring or bold colors for fall?

5. Avoid looking like a school girl...NO pleated skirts. Also be sure to pair with a laced up ankle boot with a stiletto, wedge or chunky heel.

6. Consider the type of shoes you're wearing. If you mix pattens & textures then make sure the shoe is more solid or vice versa. If your sock is simple spice it up with a fun textured or bright fun shoe!

I know this trend may scare off a few and there is a very fine line between chic and tacky, but the key is to experiment and have FUN with your outfits! If all else fails...come to Bags That Fit and our shop girls will help you execute this look to perfection!

Big Birthday Bash THANK YOU!!!

Today, select items are 75% off!! It also marks the last day of our 5 year birthday bash. THANK YOU all for such an amazing celebration! Words can't express our gratitude and love for each of you! If you made it to the shop Friday or Saturday then you know how insane it was! People were lined up and some waited over an hour to pay for their items. Ladies were also lucky if they were able to get into a dressing room. We could have never expected such a wonderful response and it was so fun for us to hear your memories and thoughts about Bags That Fit.

If you were unable to attend, here is a peak of how things went.....

The night before we were fully stocked and ready to go! We even had more product coming Friday so we could restock...
This picture was taken right after our doors opened. It doesn't even do the madness justice. At one point we were calling our friends and asking them to come help work the shop. It was more crazy then any black Friday. We are sorry we couldn't answer the phone that day. We finally had to turn the ringer off because there wasn't even a second to answer the phone. Our neighbors at Avon said our line trickled clear over to them.
Even though we had new shipments come in, this is what our shop looked like after the event. EMPTY! Not even one top left on the walls or on our dress forms!

We literally got in the car and started ordering on Friday to restock. New shipments came yesterday and are coming all week long. The shop will be FULLY stocked by Saturday.

Thanks again to all for letting us live our dream and for making this event one of our favorite Bags That Fit memories!

5 year birthday kick-off starts TODAY!!!

Today kicks-off BTF's 5 year celebration! We want to thank all our customers who have supported us over the years! There will be 5 promos this month for you to take advantage of! To start us off get 20% off ALL jewelry TODAY, February 9th only.

It all started with a dream....Amber & Shar envisioned a place for women to enjoy, relax, shop and meet friends. A place women could "escape" even for 20 minutes. This boutique was founded on LOVE and making our customers happy is extremely important to us.

Amber and Shar - Grand Opening on Lehi Main

Do you remember our cute vintage door knob display of handbags?

And who can forget our Eiffel Tower behind our old vintage desk (built with love by Ambers sweet hubby)
Here are some other memories from the Grand Opening on Lehi Main Street

We loved our little shop on Lehi Main, however, Amber & Shar felt it was time for more room and to take their dream to another level. 2 years ago BTF relocated to American Fork. There was a lot of blood, sweat and tears (literally) that went into this buildout. Amber painted it top to bottom, Shar had to learn fast how to fill nail holes and sand them away, and our sweet husbands and shop girls pitched in to help us get our beautiful black & white floors.

Grand Opening Day at BTF American Fork

Thank you ALL for allowing us to live out our dream! We have so much enjoyed working with all of you. No doubt, it has been a lot of work and a roller coaster at times. However, your smiling faces keep us going. You have no idea how much a simple compliment from a customer just brightens our day! MUCH LOVE!
