Legging and Jegging is the fashion trend that just seems to be getting better and definitely not going away!

We were fortunate enough to get in on one of the newest styles by Paige Premium.

Now if you are a girl who is NEVER searching for the perfect pair of pants or skinnies….DON’T TRY THESE ON!

On the flip side….if you are a girl who is looking for the most excellent fit…then I highly suggest that you get yourself over to try the newest jegging style by Paige Premium.

Paige is known for her fit and quality and this style is the cream of the crop.

It will be perfect with all the chunky sweaters this Fall….

Can be worn with heels or the classic new look for Fall 2010…wear with a short boot.   For you ladies who will be styling the over the knee boot….this jegging will do you right.

How about with a long cardigan or tunic?

yes the possibilities are endless….with the Perfect Pair of Jeggings:)

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!

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.

Brightening Up Your Closet

We talked a few weeks ago about how tie dye was one of this summer’s hottest trends, but there’s another trend that we also need to discuss – bright colors! Now, I know that it isn’t a surprise to most of you that the bolds come out as the weather warms up, but I wanted to show you which colors seem to be the most popular for 2010!

Moving away from the greens and blue, the hit colors for this season seem to fall more into the citrusy spectrum. Pinks, oranges, yellows, that’s the colors that people seem to be clamoring for. Like the orange tank below from Green Dragon, $83, or the Green Dragon Tang Wap, $87, under that, when you go with these colors, you’ll be able to taste the juicy oranges and grapefruits they’re inspired by.

Pulling off this look is simple. You can pair bright color with simply jeans or with crisp white pants for a refreshing put-together look. For accessories, I would go with black, the contrast will really make the colors pop. Maybe a simple black beaded necklace, black drop earrings – they will really accent the rest of your outfit.

Don’t be afraid of color – everyone can pull it off, even if it’s just adding orange pumps to your feet. If you’re unsure, just start small, a touch here, a touch there.
