Heading off to college? Don’t forget to stock up on dorm living essentials. The Container Store has a variety of hangers, crates, file boxes, shoe organizers, shower caddys, desk lamps and more. In a dorm room, space is hard to come by, but with the right tools, you can have everything you need without sacrificing style or room to move. The sun is still shining for now, but the cool, crisp autumn weather is coming, and with it comes plenty of indoor entertaining, cooking, and holiday shopping. The Container Store makes it easy and fun to plan ahead and give your kitchen, guest room, or craft corner an organization makeover. Just imagine—a clean and tidy place for all your wrapping paper, bows, ribbons, tape, and various decorative holiday pieces for everything from Halloween through New Year’s, easy to find, easy to grab.


Fall weather also means spending more time inside with loved ones.

pOSH lINGERIE


Find Your Perfect Fit Posh Lingerie

Located next to P.F. Chang’s Carolyn Boyd wanted to open a lingerie boutique that offered products for real women of all sizes. While their competitors only offer average sizes, Posh sizes range from 28AA to 44H and everything in between. “The perfect fit changes your life” says Carolyn, “really!” Being able to wear something that fits well and looks good is what Posh Lingerie was founded on.


According to Carolyn, customers are in love with the Aubade designer lingerie line, which has been a prominent name in Lingerie since 1875. Carolyn chose to open Posh Lingerie at Bridgeport Village because of the atmosphere of the shopping center and the intimate feel of the boutique setting. “I’m surprised how much fun I’m having” says Carolyn when talking about owning her own store. Her favorite part is interacting with customers and being able to match them with their ideal piece of lingerie. She is also excited about going to the Las Vegas Curves Show at the end of August, where she will be checking out the latest styles in lingerie and bringing them back to Posh.


accessorize your life francesca’s collection Located next to Eileen Fisher Welcome, Francesca’s Collection! They just celebrated their grand opening and are already making a big impression on Bridgeport shoppers. If you stop by their boutique, you’ll see why. With fresh, fun styles and loads of eclectic accessories to try on, this place is all about feeling good and looking great. Part bohemian, part classic vintage, and always feminine, Francesca’s is a great place to get inspired for fall and the approaching school year. The best part about the collection is the mix and match-ability of the separate


pieces. Say goodbye to dresses you can only wear once and shoes that end up staying in their boxes forever. At Francesca’s, you’ll be able to pair your tops, dresses, pants, leggings, shoes, belts and accessories together in seemingly endless combinations to create fabulous outfits that are sure to look great no matter what the occasion. These classic looks won’t go out of style, so look forward to wearing your pieces from Francesca’s Collection for years to come. Next time you’re spending the day at Bridgeport Village, be sure to stop by Francesca’s Collection; in between White House Black Market and Eileen Fisher, and get ready to fall in love.
