The Cat’s Meow

Animal print! This timeless pattern has been represented and styled in hundreds of different ways throughout the decades. And here at Minx? We love it! We love it as a subtle pop of edge or as the main event of an outfit. It’s the magical pattern that, while it is very eye-catching, it can also read as a neutral. This means that although animal print is a wild pattern – you can still effortlessly add a pop of color, a red lip, or layers of accessories. Don’t let it scare you away, embrace the sass as the boss lady or rebel girl that you ARE!

Wild Green

We’re in love with our latest feetlets from Seychelles!  Green suede flats with wide bows over the toes.  They are sweet perfection and oh-so comfy.  We mixed a zebra print maxi skirt with a fab lace tank, knotted over a pale green bandeau.  It’s a killer outfit for running errands or going out to lunch with gal-pals on a hot summer’s day!

Also of note:  We have a fresh batch of lovely lost-wax cast sterling silver and gold vermeil adornments from local jeweler, Mani Designs.  Currently swooning over these sedum studs, branch necklace and her bleeding heart pendants on a strand of pretty red or blue tumbled glass beads!

Kit-tees and the Purrfect Maxi Skirt

You could live in this striped maxi skirt all summer long!  It’s the perfect thing to throw on in the morning and with the right belt, can even transform into a strapless dress.  Wear it with your favorite tee or tank and you’ll be comfortable, in style, and on to bigger and better things!

Another fab maxi skirt

This maxi skirt is to die for!  You may remember seeing it in orange from this recent post, but the black version is equally as alluring.  It’s light and breezy, yet voluminous in the best of ways.  We love it paired with a black bandeau and sheer blouse, but in such a neutral black hue, you won’t have any trouble finding a top to match.

Also of note:  A fresh shipment of by boe jewelry has hit our cases and these modestly-priced earrings and necklace are some of our faves.

Gypsy Soul

We love a good maxi skirt here at Minx and this multi-colored beauty is one of our current faves.  A tank or tee in almost any color will go well with it and a mustard ADA belt finishes off this festive ensemble.  We might be sold out of the mohair sweater shawl already, but we do have similar styles by the same brand that would work just as well.
