Distressed Denim

Distressed Denim

These days, distressed denim can transition easily from day to evening and is certainly not limited to weekend wear.  We love dressing our denim up for brunch or date night (don't be afraid to rock yours after dark) and especially like the contrast of preppy white with frayed edges. 

From R to L: Derek Lam 10 Crosby crop sweater, Mother Denim "Looker" high rise jeans, Rene Escobar oxidized sterling silver necklaces, Rag & Bone wide brim fedora & Max Mara "Hobo" leather bag.

Slim silhouettes and sophisticated washes paired with a graphic sweater and luxe accessories elevates this once exclusively casual wardrobe staple while keeping your look totally cool.

Bold Blooms

Bold Blooms

Today is the summer solstice, with that comes warmer weather, later nights and our favorite summer pieces can finally be brought into regular rotation. 

But this is fashion, so we're always thinking a couple months ahead.  Pre-Fall is in full swing here at the store - boxes arriving every day with buy-now, wear- now pieces - don't be fooled by the word "fall" these looks are bright, bold and filled with floral prints and will take you straight through September.

From L to R: Annabel Ingall leather tote bag, Shay single starburst choker, Red Valentino floral print chiffon top, Mother Denim "Looker" crop jean & Sara Weinstock 18k gold and diamond bangles.

Pair your Pre-Fall floral with denim and lace up sandals for a breezy boho, summer vibe.  Come cooler weather, layer it under a faux fur vest or leather jacket, and throw on your Rag & Bone floppy brim fedora to keep you cozy.

Boho Babe

Boho Babe

Spring is finally in full bloom, which means we can break out the other half of our wardrobe that we've been missing so much while bundled in sweaters, scarves and layers and layers of wool.  Ahhh, how refreshing that cotton and linen feels against our skin, not to mention the sunshine!

A spring trend we love - that seems to show up year after year - is the 70's boho babe.  We've got fringe coming out of our ears, ethnic inspired embroidery, exaggerated floral prints and crochet details for days.  You can definitely mix all these elements together with your gladiator sandals for a look that's a bit wild yet totally fun, but it's an easy style to mix subtly into your day to day look.  You can keep it casual by simply adding a peasant blouse to your Mother Denim jeans, plus a couple wrap bracelets and a fringe bag.  

Hartford "Horsica" Top, Mother Denim "Drop Out" jean, Rag & Bone wide brim fedora, Jacquie Aiche mini abalone double horn necklace, Love Heals freshwater pearl wrap bracelets
& Day Birger et Mikkelsen fringe hobo bag.

Anther reason we love this trend, is it's versatility, there is no limit to who can wear it or how much you dress it up or down.

Peace, love and Fashion,
