Maximize Your Summer. April 29 2013, 0 Comments

Every girl should have at least one maxi dress in her closet. It’s such a versatile style and it’s super easy to dress up or down, depending upon the occasion.

We love that a maxi dress can make any woman look glamorous in an instant- pair it with heels and some statement jewelry, and you’ll automatically radiate elegance.

If you’re going for more of a casual look, though, or you’re looking to hit the beach, just accessorize the maxi dress with a floppy hat, a straw bag, some flip flops, and you’ll be good to go!

image

Check out some of the maxi dresses, and skirts, we currently have online and in-store. Whether you prefer bold patterns or simple solids, we think you’ll find the perfect maxi dress that will allow you to look and feel your best during the upcoming summer months.

Feminine Luxury. Made in USA by David Peck April 23 2013, 0 Comments

David Peck has become our go-to for luxurious, feminine pieces that offer a sublime mix of ethereal meets urban — from garden party, chic city fundraiser to beach wedding. The Houston-based designer not only incorporates sustainable fabrics, including silks and organic cotton in his collections, but he also created his own factory to ensure production quality and restore manufacturing to his beloved hometown. 


It’s that time of year where all we want to wear is a cozy... April 20 2013, 0 Comments





It’s that time of year where all we want to wear is a cozy jumper. Ace & Jig’s version combines beachy boho with an urban edge for the wanderlust, beach babe or urban warrior.

Right: We couldn’t resist these two customers - roommates and best friends - who both fell in love with the jumper.

If you’ve been wondering how to rock the Wolverine x Samantha Pleet Arc Boot in robin’s egg blue (we certainly have), take a cue from the designer’s SS13 lookbook. The designer continues to offer up whimsical pieces in barely-there hues such as fawn and sage, which provide the perfect neutral back drop for colorful, statement accessories.

Product Spotlight: Covet Linen Trench April 04 2013, 0 Comments

 

We love Covet’s 100% Linen Trench because you can achieve quite a few different looks based on how you choose to wear it; when it’s completely buttoned up, the trench takes on a very sophisticated and structured look, and when it’s left completely open, the trench gives off a very casual-yet-cool vibe. Also, because of its neutral color, this lightweight trench will match with just about anything and everything you already own.

You know when you spot a bag and just know you’ll use it forever and ever? Exactly. And that’s why we’re so happy to have these beautiful oversized leather BAGGU tote bags in the store.

Just In: UPSTATE SS13 Collection April 04 2013, 0 Comments

 

We're thrilled to announce the SS13 Collection from UPSTATE is here!

How Will You Wear The Mabel Dress? April 04 2013, 0 Comments

Available in three colors: Blue/Peacock/Black, $154

 

Product Spotlight: Gingham Bag April 04 2013, 1 Comment

 

Sometimes I'm astounded by how wonderfully clever and resourceful our designers are. For instance, New York-based accessories designer Sheila Odyssey transforms discarded plastic bags into wonderfully chic, hand-woven handbags. This spring, she emphasizes the boldness of color, taking the classic gingham check -- a staple for weavers -- and bold stripes to add a new twist to traditional design.

The process...

 

Plastic bags are sourced from all over the world. Fun fact: Global consumption of plastic bags is estimated at 1 million per minute!

 

Bags are then cut into carefully measured strips in preparation for weaving.

 

The plastic strips are woven on a traditional loom and transformed into stunning accessories.

 


Gingham Bags are available in Topaz, Turquoise, Onyx and Coral. $220

Ask An Expert: Beauty Spotlight With Spirit Demerson April 04 2013, 0 Comments

Spirit Demerson, founder of the e-commerce natural beauty emporium, spiritbeautylounge, is our go-to for natural faux glows, eco-friendly skincare and holistic hair repair. Below she dishes on her favorite products and skincare routine. 

What products are part of your essential beauty routine?
Tatcha Blotting Papers
Nvey Natural Powder
Kjaer Weis Blush in Desired Glow and



Eyeshadow in Cloud Nine, Wisdom and Onyx
Ilia Lip Conditioner in Arabian Knights
WELL People and Nvey Brushes 

Which beauty product are you currently obsessed with and why?
I'm totally I obsessed with MUN oil. It's a night face oil that my skin now craves at the end of every day. It's been making my skin look more even toned and helping me feel comforted, pampered and less frazzled before bed.




We're entering high-season for travel. What's in your travel bag?

Tata Harper Hydrating Floral Essence. In a pinch it's my cleanser, toner and moisturizer in one!

Ila Energy Spray. I'm all about aromatherapy especially when it comes to travel but this spray is more than just scent; it's completely refreshing and resetting to your whole energy.

Mayawater Facial Mist in travel size. I've loved Mayawater since it launched. I use it a lot for my hair, for moistening facial masks, for keeping me hydrated at the desk in dry air, and for setting makeup. 




RMS Beauty Living Luminizer. When you don't want to think about makeup, you can use a couple dabs of it to give yourself a polished glow.

What would you tell someone who was interested in making the switch to green and organic products, but not completely convinced yet?
If you're interested, your instincts are already telling you what you know is right - that what you absorb into your skin is just like what you eat and should be as healthful, nutritive and natural as possible.

Employee Pick of the Day April 04 2013, 0 Comments

 

Made with special care in California, I really love Amour Vert's Claire Faux Wrap Dress. Not only does it have adorable pockets, but it's by far one of the softest dresses I've ever felt (thanks to a great blend of bamboo and organic cotton). Along with this, I've always felt like it's hard to find a dress that can easily be dressed up or down, but I think I've finally found the one!
