Faces behind wish – March 2016

Here’s a little snapshot of 4 of the faces behind wish.

Judi Pavlich

GM/buyer – You can find me working at all three stores, primarily wish boutique and wish gifts.

My staples are: a cozy Barefoot Dreams wrap and my favorite Alex and Ani arm party from wish gifts. At Last hand creme by Lollia, scarf by Donnie Charm and cardigan by Sisters all at Wish Boutique. I could not live without my Kendra Scott earrings from Wish Boutique!

At W, my new favorite fitting jean, a olive skinny and boyfriend jean distressed by Just Black.

My favorite line at Boutique is Free People, at wish gifts, it’s Alex and Ani, and at W, the Just Black denim line.

My true passion is women’s accessories…. I love finding new fresh items to bring in to ALL the stores.

My dream vacation would be to go to Fiji.
