Just In-Ryu fall favorites

We’ve been lamenting about the delay in fall weather for a while now, but seriously?!?

Seeing all of these exciting new fall/winter clothes walk through our doors doesn’t help either. Maybe we should just crank up the AC and make our own autumn sanctuary inside the shop…


Yesterday, we unpacked a huge box of goodies from Ryu, including the ivory pleated off the shoulder blouse shown above. Pair it with tailored charcoal wool pants and polished accessories for an easy and comfortable outfit for the office or running errands. This Hobo handbag is a classic that’s sure to last you many years – we’re obsessed with the tortoise resin chain – and it comes in 2 smaller versions, a mini handbag and clutch in slate grey, both equipped with that cool chain link handle.


For the more bohemian crowd, we have a fantastic vintage-inspired crochet and tulle dress paired with a faux leather shearling jacket.


The wool scarf (detail shown in the middle below), by Vismaya, is the perfect blend of colorful fall hues, a whimsical paisley pattern, and coziness. Match this look with an old-world feeling necklace like the one below, a shaker necklace filled with mixed emeralds.


And, if that isn’t enough for you…top off your neo-hippie look with a great pair of worn-in brown boots. Hint, hint – you might be seeing the pair shown below at Out of Hand very soon…



longing for fall

It’s good to be back home but we are sure looking forward to some cooler weather! Even NYC was hot the past few days…

While we didn’t get any respite from the heat, we did find some fantastic spring clothes at the buying show. And, we are also happy to say, that color will be back! Crazy to think that we haven’t even gotten to the holidays and we’re already dreaming about the yummy kelly green sundresses and flirty pink tops we have on order…

But, we did fortunately return to find a few pops of fall reds and browns along side feminine details in some newly arrived items. And, we’d love to share a few of them with you below…


Camel coats are a must have for fall – and this rosette decorated wool coat from Ryu is a great find. Pair it with a classic A-line cut heather grey dress from Burlapp and you’re set for the perfect day to night autumnal outfit.

We clearly love Ryu because the next outfit – silver faux leather detailed jacket and beaded cream chiffon dress – is made of two amazing pieces by these fabulous designers out of California. Both pieces are modern yet easy to wear and can surely get some wear into the holiday season.

Lastly, we are seriously digging the pop of color in this Lia Molly sweater (she used to be the sweater designer for Anthropologie) and Burlapp tiered skirt. And, look closely, the sweater front pocket is styled with a kiss-lock closure reminiscent of an old-fashioned change purse – love at first sight.


the big reveal

The wait is almost! over…one week from today our clothing boutique will open for all of you who have been sneaking peaks and waiting patiently.


We cannot even stand the wait ourselves as we see the room fill up with delectable Anthropologie-esque sweaters, skirts, dress, and tops MINUS the dreaded triple digit price tag.

The opening celebration starts Thursday September 16th and will last through the weekend. Stop in to take a first look and check out some other rearrangements around the shop. We will have light refreshments to cool you off while you peruse the racks. And, to thank you for your generous support over the years, we will be raffling away prizes with every purchase! Including a grand prize of a $200 shopping spree!! Just snip out our ad in Skirt! magazine’s September issue, hand it to someone when you make a purchase, and cross your fingers that you will be the lucky duck who wins.

Stay tuned for a few more sneak peak photos and be sure to look out for our email reminder in your inbox!

See you Thursday!


Just In! Lollia and Smock

Our first Just In! features Smock letterpress notepads and storage boxes. Fun flower patterns, cool and bright summer colors. Pretty things always help make getting organized more fun.


And, though the new shipment of Lollia perfumes, candles, and lotions arrived last week, we’re still obsessed!



Renovations are complete!

After a long weekend and a week or so of organizing and rearranging, we now have a new meeting room! If you are looking to plan a wedding, a summer party, or just want to chat, we would love to see you.
