The Style We Share

Our team does not  believe in Trend.  We defy season. We make sure your wardrobe goes to the farmers market THEN we teach you to spin it to a cocktail party!

We want you to walk into your closet and look at it with new eyes, as if it's a box of crayons and anything can happen! New vision brings endless possibilities! 

How do we choose? keeping you relevant!

Here are our key thoughts when buying:

Material: most important. Fluidity matters.

Does it move with you? Is it soft? Is it effortless? Do you feel like you're not wearing anything?

Architecture: The cut, the design makes or break the piece. We each have our very own beautiful body and each of us require very different cuts to shine! We respect this and know how to create your very own glow.

The Nuance: There is always a reason why we purchased for the store. The history of the trickle down from the runway. A beautiful vent. A sewing detail, a button, a collar, something captures us making it a worthy choice for the store.

Price: We realize not everyone is crazy like Debbie. Shopping with her at market is a whirlwind. Price is last question.

When the rep says, •Let me show you the top sellers." Debbie just walks the other way. 

So we try to keep things affordable yet unique so you feel the

deliciousness of drinking in the design.

Sometimes there's an over the top piece and we just have to do it.

This season's? The embroidered reversible bomber jacket.

The #MustHave for your closet collection.

Our main goal is #RealGirl Style creating a glow within you. Our last three minute rule along with #DressForTheDay our mantra!

We crave igniting each of you beyond your perceived potential.

We adore each of you and love spinning your day!

You DESERVE our attention, any time, any day, any hour. We are here for you!

Make an appointment we can teach you the

#HowTo Transition to Autumn. Bring your fave pieces and let us create your #CozyChic Book now.

The Chill In The Air..Stirs Up Our Cozy!

Our Autumn Dilemma:

The early darkness, the chill in the air, the urge to layer up causes inner conflict. We want summer to hang around a moment longer, but truly a compelling urge to immediately pull our new sweaters out and throw them on cannot be helped.

We tend to go darker but let go of that.

Color bursts in textural knits is an exquisite way to style yourself chic.

Autumn and winter need not be dreary. We encourage color, creams and layers with varying lengths and textures.

Our style team adores hemline focus.We look for artistic details that we can draw attention too.

Coats are the last thing we add into our street style mix during the approaching cold. We will layer sweaters upon sweaters adding scarves and fabulous designs that would be North Pole worthy.

Open your closet and look deep within pull your sweaters out, look at your long sleeve cotton shirts  carefully examine each piece. If there are spots or fur balls on them get rid of them.

We want crisp fabulous knits with intriguing color, design, texture. We urge you to see these pieces as ingredients to your fabulous street style recipe.

Have fun and dress with abandon. Ignore the negative  inner voices.

Add your beautiful layers delicately and you will  be effortlessly chic.

Need help? Book a private appointment with our style team. Bring in your existing pieces and we will happily gently guide you.

The detail in the hemline. The side venting slit. This adds shape to everyone. It releases the bulk ones of the knit.

Seasons Change.

The sun just doesn't stay out as long now. The angle is different. The lighting has changed. The feeling in the air is just a bit different. The sounds of nature a tiny bit  louder.

The thoughts of fall appear.

There's a sadness to leave our long summer days behind but I cannot deny the excitement of a cozy sweater and a hot chocolate in front of a fire.


Life style seasonal changes definitely a thing for me.My place settings on our table change. Ingredients in my fridge alter.  My style transforms, with excitement, of course! New colors, textures, and anticipation! Fresh choices.

Never Wait For Perfection

If you wait til things are perfect you'll never get anything done.

A white blank canvas can be daunting but, such an exciting challenge #TheFirstMark .

What to do?

Do you feel defeated before you begin?

Don't know where to begin?

Just make the first mark!

Begin.

What's the worst thing that happens?

Seriously, answer that.

It doesn't work? A mistake?

There are NO mistakes only discoveries.

And you can only make discoveries through your mistakes.

So click your iphone and post to Instagram. You don't have to wait for a camera.

Write your blog post and let the words out there! You don't need a computer.

Paint your heart out on as many pieces of paper of canvas as you have. Anything will do!

The point is:

We all have a habit of thinking I'll wait til the environment is perfect AND that will never happen.

I'll wait til I have solitude.

I'll wait for just the right time.

We make excuses.

The perfect studios/offices we see on Instagram they don't exist.

The perfect looking lives of others not real.

Cameras click on the best angles.

Quit being influenced by others.

Quit resenting. Quit feeling without because of those pics! or posts on social media.

Instead:

Become inspired. Break the pics up and critique why you loved the shot! What does it trigger inside of you?

Begin so you can improve.

Begin so you can get on your path.

Waiting will not improve you.

Resentment will weaken you.

JUST pick up whatever you haven't and begin.

Be selfish.

Shut your phone off.

Take a walk return home and

Feel your creative.

Spark your inner magic.

Scream and loosen your voice up!

Click away!

Write.

Paint.

Draw.

Help yourself!

Feel your gratitude.

Jump in and get ready for a fabulous adventure! 

Quit thinking and just feel your inner joy!

BEGIN.

An Evening To Remember

An Enchanting Evening In The Country.

Unexpected.

A night under the stars misted over with rain. The sound of the rain on the roof of the barn,(yes the barn), absolute perfection!

The heaviness of the air brought a blurred lighting to the camera.

Visual Eye Candy.

The barn filled with intermittent giggles and squeals.

An evening of sensory fulfillment.

The theme Indian Sultry.

Cooper Boone hosted an evening at his home in the country with guest chef Heather Carlucci.

The evening began with cocktails inside his home. Walking around, discovering treasures, staring and taking photos of rare and eclectic vintage treasures.

Dinner was announced and we walked across the expanse of the yard to the barn. Most guests used umbrellas which added to the #StyleScene.

Simply decorated hay bales to sit upon and one rustic long table set with charm.

Candlelight, sound of rain, the smell of wet grass, darkness of night, chef announcements, clicking of cameras and ice cubes clinking. The quintessential summer evening.

Each course a revealing of seasonings and textures. Commingling of the senses and fabulous conversation.

Cooper Boone couldn't sit still with excitement all night, eating at various places and joining in  groups clicking selfies! Energized and bouncy!

Friends, family and strangers brought together for an evening of discovery. So many intriguing conversations. Businesses combined and explored.

The art of a dinner party is a delicate balance. Who to invite. What to serve. Choosing a theme. Where to host. The conversation created.

The adventure of the night

you never know. You prep your home, set the table and just when everything is perfect the first guests begin to arrive.

And like a river you let go and let the evening take shape.

So much fun!

Thank you Cooper for setting the scene of a fabulously chic evening! A natural cozy setting ignited through love and passion for friends.

xoxo
