Coming Soon: Fall Boots!

It’s that time when everyone starts saying the four letter word that signals our End of Summer is near….FALL!   Our fall shoes are going to start hitting the shelves soon, so we wanted to give our customers a sneak peak at what styles we are expecting in the next few months.

Just Arrived Today!!!

We predict that this motorcycle-styled boot (Petula from ZigiNY) is going to fly off of our shelves. The buckle hardware adds a little rocker girl edginess to the boot, making it the perfect  go to boot for all of your outings.    A pair of black tights, combined with a girly cream skirt or the NEW Paige Premium Jeggings (coming soon) with your fav tunic will create a look that you will love to live in for sure!

And then…the famous MINNETONKA Moccassins….(Most are already in stock!)

Classic Casual Boho….it’s a style that really never seems to go away.  It’s also EXTREMELY wearable for our climate in the Triangle (RDU).  This is a company that is going to be front and center for FALL fashions.

Fringe is a trend for now…and Minnetonka gives a girl choices by offering it in small

AND large doses:)! Bring it on!

Plain White Tee – Part Two

Continuing from this article on accessorizing your plain tee from the neck up, we’re moving down to dressing up the actually t-shirt.

We just got in this great crochet vest ($42) which is the perfect piece to toss in your closet and wear over a t-shirt, tank top, tube top, whatever you could come up with. The delicate crochet detail on the back adds a flirty little hint of style.

Another thing you could do with just a plain t-shirt is to dress if up with a jacket or sweater. Take this cardigan from Hard Tail ($88). The fabric is lightweight, breezy and perfect for the warm summer days or cool nights. This cardigan is a bit sheer, allowing it to pick up on the colors you are wearing underneath – so you can spice it up with a yellow t-shirt or just pair it with black.

For a jacket, this spark jacket from XCVI ($158) is great for giving off a hint of sassy attitude. The sides are studded with brass dots, giving it a high-fashion touch and this jacket looks great over a tank top, t-shirt, pretty much anything that you could imagine to pair with it.

Fall Fashion Trend Report: Military Urbanist

Stores are already stocking their shelves with the newest arrivals for fall, while we are all still sweating from this humid North Carolina weather. So what’s the hottest up and coming trends? It’s looks like military is back in style again, focusing on neutral colors (creams, blacks, olives) with an urban feel.

Like this Marzipan colored Pinocchio coat from XCVI which is stated to arrive the end of this month made of felted wool (same coat as below).

It’s chic, comfortable, stylish and can go with almost anything.
