Gift Guide

With less than a week till Christmas, it's shopping crunch time.  Whether you felt prepared a few weeks ago, the snow and ice probably delayed your progress a bit.  We've got some fool-proof, crowd-pleasing ideas that will keep you at the the top of your gift giving game.

From L to R: Grisal cashmere scarf, Herno down jacket, Vince cashmere cardigan coat & Jack Gomme leather tote bag.

Try to stick to things that are easy to fit, or even better, require no fit at all.  Lush sweaters, light weight scarves and small leather accessories are always a good bet.

Wishing you a very merry Christmas!

Packing List: Hawaiian Getaway

Packing List: Hawaiian Getaway

Raise your hand if you feel like it's been winter forever. Yeah, us too.  It's hard not to start dreaming of sunshine and summer and get super bored with winter once the spring collections start to arrive in-store. 

If you're one of the lucky ones, you've got a warm weather vacation planned in the near future.  Whether it's sunny Southern California, the blazing hot desert or the beaches of Mexico, it doesn't really matter as long as it's warm.  Here at Mercantile, we've been dreaming of a tropical, Hawaiian getaway, complete with early morning walks on the beach, boogie boarding and sunset Mai Tai's. 

From L to R: T by Alexander Wang reversible jersey dress, Joie "Knapp" silk blouse, Hartford Liberty print shorts, James Perse mesh hooded pull-over, AG Jeans, Sol Angeles "Ciao" tank, Current/Elliott "Navy" skirt and "The Cinched" dress.

Remember, a successful packing list doesn't have to be lengthy, as long as all your pieces can be mixed and matched.  Sticking to a neutral color palette, with a single pop of color is always a plus and you can always add a little extra color with your shoes, accessories and of course your bikini.  Don't forget a couple pairs of sunnies and your trusty Panama hat.

Aloha!

What are you doing New Year's...

What are you doing New Year's...

Christmas is behind us and we're in the home stretch of the winter holidays, which means it's time to figure out what you're wearing New Year's Eve.  Whether you're doing a low-key night at home with the kids, or headed to a big shindig with loads of friends, it's fun to plan a festive outfit to wear.  

New Year's Eve is a long night, so be sure to sport something comfortable, easy to dance in and of course chic!

From L to R: T by Alexander Wang sheer turtleneck sweater, RED Valentino strawberry jacquard mini skirt, Sara Weinstock yellow gold and diamond earrings, M Missoni crochet cross-body purse, L'Agence "Jane" silk tank, Vince tuxedo trousers, Sara Weinstock crescent moon pendant and bangles, Kim White clutch, T by Alexander Wang bandage dress, Rene Escobar Bangles, Ashlyn'd lucite clutch

It's all about the jewels with these looks, go bold, and don't be afraid to mix metals and stones for an outfit with tons of sparkle.  As always a vibrant lip and a sky high pump is a must for all three ensembles.

Wishing you and yours a fabulous New Year. Stay safe and have fun!

Countdown to Christmas

Countdown to Christmas

It's the final days before Christmas - three sleeps till X-Mas Eve - and whether or not you've completed your shopping or are still scrambling for a few last minute bits and bobs, it's a hectic time for everyone.  We want to ease your stress a bit, so we've broken down the three essential outfits for the main event.

We like to go big for Christmas Eve, with a bold dress and gold accessories and of course don't forget your highest heels and a red lip. 

Stay comfy while you watch the kids open presents, snack on breakfast and sip mimosas. We're thinking some super soft sweats, a tissue tee and a soft wool cardigan. 

Keep the comfort level high but stay chic for Christmas dinner with your family.  Neutral colors and splashes of fringe will keep things festive. 

From L to R: Equipment dress, Rene Escobar bangles, Max Mara purse, Theory shearling jacket, Hartford sweater, James Perse tee, Current/Elliott sweats, Vince silk top and suede leggings, Samira 13 earrings and bangles and Ashlyn'd lucite clutch.

We wish you a fun and festive holiday weekend filled with love, laughter, family and friends.
