News / new in store
They straddle the space between lingerie and swimsuits. They're made to be seen. (Yes, you count.)
In addition to the fabulous patterns and color-block, Xirena also makes a fantastic cotton poplin button down shirt. And that's just about the extent of the collection. But Oh, what they do they do so well.
All made here in the USA.
Wear 'em, love 'em.
Is it possible to fall in love with a shirt? 'Cause this new button down from Hartford has stolen my heart*:
It brings to mind Marilyn on the beach, which sounds just about perfect in every way today. Or, possibly, just the effortless chic of this shirt with black skinny jeans- which is how I'd wear it.
Which means I'm doubly pleased to introduce Eugene denim. They're great jeans: clean, simple, skinny but not too, low rise, but not too, with a sweet pedigree: Italian denim, but made in the USA. We've got two styles in: deep, dark denim for the purists, and a black that starts that way, but fades to grey below the knee. Ombre. Nice.
Come check them out.
I'm not looking up your skirt, but from the looks of my underwear drawer, I could use some new undies...
So, generous girl that I am, I have brought in some new favorites for all of us.
Herewith I re-introduce Cosabella to the store (with matching bras and bralets):
|Retro leopard print? check.|
|Sunshine lace hotpants? check.|
|Lace edged cotton? check.|
The lovely and delightful, and very local, Megan Noonan dropped off pieces from her inaugural collection for Marijn Bennet. I'm particularly taken by the braided scarves in alpaca and wool. Warm necklaces in fetching colors are an original take on a winter staple.
Hikaru Noguchi, is a new gem for us. Japanese by origin, she produces her collection of knit accessories in the UK from the finest Scottish, English and Australian wool. The styles reference vintage knitwear, while updating colors to a thoroughly modern mix. I call it friendly, soft, warm... and definitely cool.
Another new find is Mercy Studio, by a design duo out of Toronto. The rich fabrics, attention to detail and romantic silhouettes drew me in immediately. In the end, though, there is something unique and artful about the collection that I haven't come across before, and that won me over. The digitally printed silk charmeuse, in deep navy with bronzy gold, blue, white and brown is pure luxury, and the washed stars on woven wool are sophisticated delight. Not to mention the gold brocade coat...
