Why? Because I've been in a store related existential crisis for a while now. Let's welcome this new decade working toward a more sustainable future. Extending the life of our garments by buying and selling amongst ourselves has a huge environmental impact, slowing down the damages incurred in the manufacturing process and also keeping things out of the landfill for longer. Plus, personally, I'd much rather have a new-to-me Hartford shirt than a new-new Old Navy tee. Let's share, and trade, and swap. Let's give ourselves more opportunities to come together. Let's get lucky. Let's get creative. Let's clean out our closets...
Warm weather..and winter warmth too
A peek at the pieces I'm dreaming about wearing right now:
Xirena's Dylan dress in Le Marais stripes

Matta cotton voile sarongs in cheerful stripes
Xirena cotton channing shirt in Le Marais stripes
Matta Sabina dress in cotton voile shot through with rainbow stripes of delicate metallic lurex
Xirena apres ski sweater in Taos stripes
The weather broke yesterday. Or at least the humidity did, and it's a pleasant 75 degrees, with a calm, overcast grey sky. It's delightful. So I pulled out a few sweaters. They've been squatting in the back room waiting patiently for a moment when their mere existence won't be offensive to summer-lovers, bent on guzzling up the rays.
I love summer for sure, but man am I happy to feel a gentle, slightly cool breeze skimming my skin after a few weeks of oppressive heat. And so. I'm celebrating by pulling out a few of our sweaters. There are more to come, but in the meantime here's a little cashmere tease from Velvet. Available in a rich brick orange-red, and deep cobalt blue.
If you're traveling somewhere cold, you're welcome to ask.. the back room has more cozy goodness from Xirena, Velvet, and Hartford holding out for appropriate weather, and we're happy to give you a sneak peek.
