Tell Me A Storia

Hello, sweet friends! We are back and, whew, it feels so good! Spring is here in Asheville and we thought that there’s no better way to bring the Minx Blog back than with the Botanical Gardens as a backdrop & featuring two Spring dress looks! We are so thrilled to have Carrie & Grace modeling for us this season– let’s make some introductions. These two lovely locals embody a soft strength that perfectly encapsulates what Minx is all about. Carrie works out of a collective space with other artists and makers in Marshall & spends her time traveling all over searching for beautiful vintage finds to bring back to Asheville. Grace is a visual artist and weaver whose work can be found in coffee shops, art stores, and galleries all over Asheville & beyond. It was such a pleasure to work with them, and we are thrilled to share these looks with you all! We are also honored to have our dear Minxie, Megan shooting photos for the blog. She is not only a treasured Minxie in the shop but is also a talented photographer & we’re stoked to have her on the Minx Blog team.

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.

Chin Up

We hope you all had a wonderful Fourth of July full of BBQs, fireworks, and those you love around you! Speaking of holidays, whether its before or after Labor Day – there’s no denying how fantastic a crisp white dress is for summer! We love this three-quarter inch sleeve, embroidered dress from Lazybones (and also obsessed over them in a previous post, if you’re curious!). Wearing white can be an excellent way to incorporate neutrals that maybe don’t get as much love during the colder seasons. White tshirts, white shorts, sneakers that used to be white as some point – its all good for this summer! It also creates a beautiful pallet for mixing with accessories and shoes that speak to your personal style. From patterns, to textures, to neons, a white style foundation can handle it all! Happy styling!

Seal the Deal

May has arrived! Summer is fast approaching, but we love getting to sit still and breathe in the Spring breeze just as much. Perfect for these transitional months are classic staples like this striped midi-dress from Monteau. Not only do we love the price point, but we love how effortlessly it can be incorporated into any style + look. This dress really is the perfect pallet for fine-tuning to your personal tastes. While these red Seychelles sandals add an element of drama and color to the look – we can totally see this with some great high top sneakers, classic black loafers, and anything in between.
