Minx Values – Fashion

Fashion

To Minx, fashion is an endless creative well from which we draw daily inspiration. It’s a way of expressing who we are. It’s a way of clothing ourselves with awareness, creativity, and purpose. Fashion can take us from an interview to a party, from childhood to adulthood, and everything in between. Fashion is new, fresh, and one of the great ways we can empower ourselves.

Minx Values – Caring

Caring

At the core of our values lies caring. Caring, to us, is the way we put love into action. We care and show our love through the way we interact with women, our community, and the way we conduct our business. What we are saying when we care is that it matters – women matter, good business matters, our community matters, and how we act matters – all the time.

Minx Values

Minx Values

We are a few weeks away from celebrating our 15th birthday here at Minx! We are so immensely grateful to our community and friends from all over who have enabled us to provide and share a love of fashion with our customers who quickly become our family. We will be sharing with you the values that Minx lives and breathes by. We hope to communicate the impact that you all have made on our lives and what we hope to continue to give back. We love you all. So much. XOXO, Minx.

Swing, Swing

We love it when an outfit can be striking and also carry you through many different activities of the day seamlessly. This sweet, floral crop top from Sadie + Sage paired with these high-waisted shorts can effortlessly take you from brunch in the morning, to running errands during the afternoon – all with a little help of a shoe and outerwear change. This crocheted kimono from Echo is a lovely, subtle statement that adds a touch of romance to your look. Feel free to wear it open as a duster, or even tied around for a great swimsuit coverup. For your afternoon activities, we switched out the kimono for a great cropped moto-jacket and some trusty sneakers. And just like that, you’re ready to hit the ground running without compromising your look.

Corners

We’ve already covered in past posts our love affair with wearing white for summer. And this dress from English Factory is no exception. Today we really encourage you to take staples and trends that you know you love and suit you, and push the envelope just that much further. If you know you love a tunic shape on your body, pick up a great tunic with a cold-shoulder detail. Or perhaps you live in button-downs, find one with some leather paneling in the back or some lace elements. That’s what we love about English Factory – they take an approachable piece like a white dress and add elements to create an edgy, daring look. The tiered ruffles on the bottom on this dress immediately transport you to somewhere dreamy! And the tiny floral details are a nice take on a pattern that can sometimes be too busy or over-saturating. So, before summer ends, find your staple piece and then step it up a notch into somewhere a little more daring and unexpected. (Maybe that means less is more!) Whatever rings true for YOU. It’s a little scary at first, but the Minxies have got your back!

Have A Seat

If you’ve been with us awhile, then the genius that is Johnny Was designs will come as no surprise to you. Embroidery, being one of the biggest trends this season, is one of the most defining features of a Johnny Was garment and they have been in the game for awhile! These special pieces speak to that vintage, well-loved feel with the detail and dedication of a hand-stitched embroidery, bringing life and story to each piece. We strongly suggest investing in Johnny Was that speaks to you – its true wearable art and translates to any event. Understated and yet eye-catching, this tunic dress from Johnny Was needs no introduction and is not quickly forgotten.

Sprout

With many activities becoming lake-side and ending with a quick ride down the French Broad River, its important to consider how easily your look can go from indoors to outdoors without factoring in a complete outfit change. Perhaps that means finding the perfect summer sandal that is not only eye catching but also incredibly comfortable and versatile. We have definitely found that in our Pons sandals! Made by hand in Spain since 1945, these ethically-minded sandals are created out of recycled materials and all-natural leather. We encourage you to learn more about the history of these sandals on their website and come try a pair on for yourself! Toss on your go-to summer dress or cover-up and soak up as much summer sun as possible.
