Rockstar 101

The changing leaves, the hot cocoa, the holidays, the COATED DENIM – all things we look forward to in the cooler seasons. Coated denim is a really nice way to merge the comfort of your favorite pair of jeans with the interest and edginess of a shiny, leather-like, coating. These are just as effortless to style as jeans but instantly elevate your look. Here, we have styled a pair of Paige coated denim with some strappy heels from Chelsea Crew, but these pants could easily be paired with some booties or knee-high boots and transition easily into colder months. And this dark purple/wine color is an obsession of ours this season. Perhaps its the new millennial pink?

Tunnel Vision

The sneakers + dress trend: we officially are OBSESSED! This combo is perfect for summer and getting you from place to place without a lot of fuss. It appears that the “athleisure” trend is here to stay and while that doesn’t always translate to working at a boutique, for us this means finding ways to incorporate casual/athletic pieces with dresses and boutique fashion. This Paige dress perfectly fits into this trend. And we love simply changing up your shoes can create an entirely different vibe without having to put forth a lot of effort. Effortless is what we’re going for here. Have a dress you love and feel like it’s only good for weddings? Throw that on and pair it with your worn out sneakers, ankle socks, a denim jacket, some lapel pins and a backwards baseball cap and you are good-to-go! There’s your look. Have you experimented with the athleisure trend? We hope its here to stay!

In the Navy?

With a pair of these baby soft, peacock blue, corduroy jeggings no outfit can go wrong. Accessorize with a feather weight tunic and little jaunty jacket or throw them under your favorite floral summer dress (they are practically tights after all).  As per usual they are selling fast;  your fall wardrobe would be so lonely without them.

FLOATING ACTION

Oh dude! Do you know about Seth Kauffman’s infectious melodies?  Do you know about his talented band? Do you know about the new album “Floating Action” and how awesome it is?  If you don’t you better mark May 30th on your calender, and then on that day, head down to the Grey Eagle. Of course you should come early to hear Fox-Teeth (Joti, Tyler and me!).

Come by the store if you need help choosing your outfit for this special social event. What do I think would look nice in the home away from home feel of the Grey Eagle? A snazzy new pair of JEANS!!  We have so many different cuts from Blank, Earnest Sewn, Level 99 and Paige, I am sure we have the perfect fit for anyone!

Big Brown Boxes!

M. Rena –  The best best tube dress/high-waist skirt/slip in every good color, even striped. They are all one size fits all… yet some how just one isn’t enough. Also, racer back baby doll tanks in yummy jewel tones and short strappy stripey dresses! Cream, teal, burnt orange, grassy green, smokey grey, chartreuse… All between $36 and $45!

Paige – The perfect skinny summer weight denim in a light/medium wash. Seriously… if I looked good in skinny jeans you would have to fight me for these. Also the absolute perfect pair of dark Laurel Canyons (boot cut)… This cut looks good on everyone!

Minuet – Two blouses in mustard and navy…. structured and minimal… and the prettiest little brown shirtwaist dress. $27 to $52

Kersh – The perfect cropped cover up. We sold out of these lovelies so fast that we re-ordered. Black, Teal and Nutmeg. Along with the ruched crop we also reordered the convertible coverup… white and black… so good over dresses and perfect with jeans. Also a beautiful gold and white printed cardy and a colorful knit dress.

Frye – The worlds most perfect bootie. Little black canvas and leather and we only have ONE 7.5, 8, 8.5 and 9… $225.

Trinity – Organic cotton and silk! So elegant and romantic. Two tunic tops in lavender and cream with bits of lace and pleating and a silk and crochet, sea foam green blouse. Also the sweetest stormy teal A-line frock with lace details at the top and dreamy patch pockets. Float away in a cloud of almost spring!

Ya – One amazing, perfect over dresses, bright coral-orange jersey cardigan/wrap, only $36. A great pink-salmon strapless cotton dress… and a hip short sleeved, pocketed cotton jacket in sky blue and pale tangerine… all great… all priced so low you can’t help but snag a few.

Paper-Bag Waist?!

Ok, I know. Look at these teeny tiny child giants wearing pretty things that, lets face it, no one else can pull off… only… wait… I don’t actually believe that statement is true….

I know few people that couldn’t get away with, if not exactly this look (bellow), something like it. So cute, fresh and youthful. I adore taking a “tricky” piece of clothing adding a graphic t and flats. It makes so many fussy items chill out and just do their thing. Grow it up a bit with a plain white v-neck and some simple heels or dress it up with a blouse and some stunning platforms! It’s so much more vestal than you think.

Paper bag waist items at Minx: Black and white jersey skirt by Hazel, dark denim jeans by Paige (these are super flattering, a very subtle version of this trend), and the best for last: blue cotton pencil skirt by Tulle (see it on one of our mannequins this week, so stylish with a deer creatures blouse and my ever favorite Frye yellow pumps).

New, New, NEW!

The shipments of the week are as fallow –

Tulle – you heard me! A GIGANTIC box of Tulle… think little yellow and white knit sweaters, the perfect canvas coats in tangerine and sky blue, a true waist grey canvas skirt, nautical inspired stripy tops… the list is just too long. I want one of each.

Tulle $80Tulle $55Tulle $64Tulle $84

Level 99 – Great white linen mix trousers, SUPER flattering. And the perfect pair of wide leg light weight jeans.

Level 99 $106

Kersh – This is easily the largest Kersh shipment in a long time. Known for their flawless knits, these beauties won’t disappoint. Fashion forward tops that hang off the shoulder, beautiful knit dresses in spring green and black, little cropped crochet sweaters… just beautiful.

Amber Mahler – Some new pieces from Amber and we are stunned by her beautiful work! Beautiful necklaces and cast earrings… a few vintage and tin necklaces too… come take a look!

Amber Mahler $80

Paige – A seriously stunning pair of Hidden Hills (medium high rise!) in the perfect summer weight denim with a refreshing crisp wash that flatters all. And a skinny legged dark indigo jean. ($180, and $151)

Joti Marra Jewelry – I just have to mention that I brought in a TON of new stuff this week. Lots and lots of rose earrings in tons of fun spring colors ($50), my best selling vintage cameo earrings ($40), a few great necklaces, and a bunch of fun brass earrings.

Hazel – A gorgeous black lace circle skirt, a ravishing embroidered blue blouse, and a crazy cool pink skirt. It’s all so sweet and vintage inspired….
