Buying 101: What Does Style Diversity Mean

What about the uniqueness of buying for a boutique allows you to sell to such close circles of friends and family? I would say that it is the ability to know every one of your clients. By knowing every client, you know their circles and can therefore purchase according to what is happening in their lives.  I know when many clients will be attending the same event and can be sure that I have purchased a vast selection of unique looks for each of them.  When it comes to our everyday wardrobe, I keep everyone, family or friend in my thoughts when I am purchasing to be sure that classic, modern, and contemporary looks are included in our mix.
