Glik’s at Magic Market Week 2013

Las Vegas is all about the bright lights, over-the-top entertainment, nightlife and endless nights of gambling… but for us, Las Vegas is all about MAGIC MARKET WEEK.

MAGIC MARKET WEEK is where the global players in the contemporary fashion and apparel sourcing scene gather twice a year in Las Vegas. The largest, most influential network of buyers, brands, media, and decision makers gather at several merchandised show areas:

  • WWDMAGIC
  • FN PLATFORM
  • WSA @ MAGIC
  • PROJECT
  • THE TENTS @ PROJECT, PROJECT MVMNT
  • MAGIC MEN’S
  • POOL TRADESHOW
  • ENKVEGAS
  • SOURCING @ MAGIC

Those who attend MAGIC MARKET WEEK also have access to seminars, trends, brands, industry networking, and commerce. It’s the who’s who in trends and the ‘where we want to be’ for many major players.

Glik’s buying team attends MAGIC MARKET WEEK twice a year to find the freshest trends to bring back to the Midwest.

Here is a glance of what happened while at MAGIC MARKET WEEK:

It’s Festival season! Concerts, parties, fun times with friends, what’s not to love? People-watching is always a fun activity, but style watching during these shindigs is the best.

TOMS + Glik’s One Day Without Shoes 2013

For the past 3 years Glik’s has celebrated TOMS One Day Without Shoes under the St. Louis, Missouri Arch. The whole Home Office shed their shoes and walked the Arch grounds barefoot. One Day Without Shoes is a special day that Glik’s helps TOMS raise awareness of the impact a pair of shoes can have on a child’s life. This day is for spreading the ONE FOR ONE message!

We set up outdoor activities, played games, made crafts, shared IMO’s pizza, and passed out goody bags to the public. If you don’t already know, the Midwest weather is fickle and can never decide what climate to relax in. The first two years were bright and sunny, the public was out in the masses enjoying the warmth. Our feet were lucky. Yes, we were barefoot, but we still had the luxury of warmth and soft soil.

It was bound to happen sometime, so why not this year… IMG_5209

Rain. Cold rain. Lots of it.

 But we were not alone. Some of our Northern locations had snow.

No complaints, though! Despite the wet and cold, we had fun in our bare feet! Here are a few of our favorite photos from TOMS One Day Without Shoes 2013…

TOMS One Day Without Shoes 2013

Last year on April 10th the Glik’s home office staff gathered under the Arch with our friends/family to raise awareness and celebrate the TOMS shoes campaign One Day Without Shoes. We invited the public to join in on our games, eat yummy pizza from IMO’s, and put their best foot forward (literally) by creating a bit of art.

IMG_2928

Our afternoon was sunny and bright, but don’t let that fool you… It was still very cold and windy outside. The ground felt cold and hard beneath our feet, and the grass was stiff from winter’s harsh treatment. It did not contour to each step we took, as it would have in the warmer spring or summer seasons. By the end of the day our feet ached from the ground debris and were numb due to the elements. This was the most important lesson behind ODWS.  We were able to learn what it felt like, for several hours, to not have shoes to protect our feet.

IMG_2880

 

Personally, I spent the whole day without shoes. This included walking in rock strewn parking lots, stubbing my toes on various rocks, twigs, steps, and desk legs.  Worst of all, I had to walk barefoot into a public restroom because I could no longer hold myself, which was the most disgusting thing EVER. I felt gross, embarrassed, (secretly) whiney, and ashamed for having those– so self-absorbed– complaints. Having shoes is actually a luxury, and I have a closet full of them, but most don’t even serve an actual function.

IMG_2877

 

Oh, and the stares…

People actually gawked, which made me feel slightly overexposed. Some people approached me and asked why I was barefoot, which was nice. It felt really good to be able to share with others the reason why I was without my shoes. This is the goal behind TOMS One Day Without Shoes movement.

IMG_2862

 

One Day Without Shoes has helped to raise awareness for the millions of people, throughout the world, who don’t own shoes. It shows those who participate how it feels to go a day without them, and what we can do to help those in need!

We are excited to invite you to please participate this year with us on Tuesday, April 16th 2013 for TOMS shoes One Day Without Shoes event!

 

 

It’s a BRIGHT Life: A List of Neon Needs

As many of you have already noticed, neon is coming back in a BIG way. At first, you may have tried to ignore it with flashbacks of 80’s, Aqua Net cemented bangs and wearing your stirrup pants, Day-Glo t-shirts with your triple lace up L.A Gears (it’s okay, you weren’t alone).  Take a deep breathe, bright is BACK and we encourage you to HAVE FUN with it.

There’s something magic about the warm summer weather that makes people daring in their style choices! So, color yourself rad for summer and have fun with some color burst ideas!

 

What girl doesn’t like to paint their nails? Nail polish is a great way to express yourself and it is a perfect way to put a subtle little pop of electric neon into literally any outfit! (Photo courtesy of thefreshfiends.com­)

They are so easy to wear. Slip into your favorite pair of denim skinny jeans and throw on a brilliantly colored top, like this neon pink dolman to add a flare of color.

Dress up any LBD with a pair of color pop platform pumps!

Gold is good, especially when paired with bold color designs, like Missoni stripes. Color spark gold accessories are a smart accent to any outfit!

Go bright or go home! We’re just kidding, but it’s all about a daring splash of color this summer. SO, why not go all the way and rock a pair of Lime Green Jeggings like these from the ever popular, Flying Monkey brand.  Partner a vivid bright pair of pants with a neutral top and don a chic blazer with bold accessories for a trendy, yet versatile look.

The warm weather season has just begun, so you have time to decide the bright thing to wear! If’ you’re looking for inspiration stop into any Glik’s location nearest to you or check out our bright ideas online at gliks.com.
