On the morning of April 29th, I woke up bright and early to meet my girlfriend Shelbi at the grand re-opening of francesca's boutique at Champion Forest Plaza. And grand it was indeed. The store was fabulous before but post-remodel?! It's absolutely stunning! My jaw was on the floor the second I walked through the door- I'm pretty sure Chip and Joanna made a road trip down to Houston for this one. Everything about the new look is fresh, modern, and chic. The wooden floors span throughout the space, even into the dressing rooms which each boast their own accent rug (and plenty of space to try on ALL the clothes!). Francesca's remodeled three of their Houston locations and I can't wait to stop by the others and check out the new design! If they look anything like the Champion Forest Plaza location, which I'm sure they do, I better be prepared for more jaw dropping moments.
Here are a few pictures of the new layout before I show you what I couldn't resist taking home with me!
Those who know me well know that I've long been a fan of francesca's, especially when it comes to gifts. Of course I love to shop for myself too (duh), but if I'm in need of a present for a friend, francesca's is always my go-to. Birthdays, Mother's Day, bride-to-be, graduation- francesca's has the best selection of unique gifts that any girl would love. The day of the Champion Forest store re-opening, I was headed to a birthday lunch for my sweet friend Dawn right after. Being the last minute gifter that I am, I planned on picking up Dawn's gift at the boutique that morning and luckily the selection did not disappoint! In fact, I had trouble narrowing down what to get because I knew Dawn would love pretty much anything in the store. I ended up getting her this necklace because she's Texas born and raised and loves the Rangers. :)
Of course I couldn't leave without grabbing a few things for myself- I ended up with this cold shoulder top in pink, these jeans that have the comfiest stretch ever, and this Southern Belle tote that makes the perfect shopping and/or beach bag.
If you live in the Spring/Woodlands area, you've got to stop by the new Champion Forest Plaza francesca's location soon! You're sure to be impressed and leave with lots of cute new finds!
A big thank you to francesca's for having me out to the reopening and for sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting those who support this blog!
