Tara apologies if her comment was taken the wrong way, but explains how the store should be curated.

First and foremost, I would like to apologize to those who may have been offended when I said that the clothes Wilson brought in were "a little gay." I realize it was not very "PC" of me, and I fear I may have given the wrong impression. I could try and do this by sharing about my "girly" moments, but I will resist the urge and keep my comments to this episode. I didn't mean my words to be derogatory, or that I disliked the pieces, but rather I meant that they were a little flamboyant and campy. In fact, I watched this episode with a friend, who happens to be gay, and he agrees with me.

And shouldn't I be a little concerned when he brings in flavorful shirts and mentions consigning leather underwear? When we curate, we have to consider a wide variety of tastes and not just our own. And like I told Bentley, when she began insulting the clothes in the store, "there is something for everyone" and hopefully that will mean the men's section, which is a sad state of affairs.
(Oh, and after thinking about it, my brother and his biker friends would probably rock those shirts along with leather underwear!)
Wilson is right, I certainly don't know it all, nor do I pretend to. On the contrary my managerial style is one that embraces collaboration and promotes teamwork. And often I have to reel it in, in order to run a tight ship. In fact, it seems as if he is the one that is always quite sure of himself.

In episode 3 it looks like you were wearing 2 scarves at the same time under a blouse. Can you please share with us how you tied them to look like that. It looked great!

In episode 3 it looks like you were wearing 2 scarves at once under a blouse. Can you please share how you tied them to look like that?

Thank you so very much!

I thought that black and red dress was terrific! And i thought Bentley was insufferable. You were too polite to her.

Tara, I think you are a great manager and doing a fine job running the store, while being nice and friendly to your staffs. I haven't found a reality style tv show that I like since Tabatha's show. It's just so real and I can see myself being one of you, working, learning, laughing, making mistakes, forgiving each other, or being one of your clients walking in that door shopping or consigning something. Anyway, I can't wait to see what's next. I hope STA will reach out to the West Coast very soon, especially in Seattle, I'll def visit it.

You all keep saying you got "invited" to the event, when in fact, Ambria asked if Riva could get them tickets. Stop saying how awesome it was to get invited!

Tara--what's the story on the black and red-checked sweater dress you were wearing at the beginning of this episode?
