By Golly, By Timo

Let’s face it – there’s a lot of fashion rules. And I know we talk a lot here about how to push the envelope when those rules are holding you back from being your true authentic self. And this post is no different! There may not be a hashtag yet for the statement sock (or maybe there is? #statementsock where are ya?!) but we are certainly here for this subtle trend. It may seem like totally against the rules to pair sparkly socks with such a classic dress, but we say, “go for it!” This By Timo dress is a floral, ruffle, western, romance all rolled into one beautiful piece. Sometimes a piece that is so specific almost lends itself for even more rule-bending! Next time you’re out shopping, find something super literal and see if there are ways to bring it closer to your personal style. A Gingham dress with lace trim? Add a moto jacket and high top sneakers. A floor-length satin slip dress? Add a patterned long sleeve underneath or a neckerchief. In short, push that evenlope, friends! It’s fashion – nothing is off limits.

Connect the Dots

The name of the game this is Spring is… wait for it!…RUFFLES!! This trend has been popping up everywhere and we are loving it! The ruffle trend hasn’t ever really fall off the grid – it just goes in and out of subtlety throughout the seasons. This detail stands out nicely with the Bardot-style or peasant top or even as some added interest on a pair of socks. Traffic People incorporates this ruffle trend beautifully in sleeves this maxi dress. This piece is a total show stopper and conversation starter, while still not being completely over the top. At Minx, we love on-trend pieces and even more when trends are used in a way that makes them totally timeless.

picnic please

With this straw bag you’ll have plenty of space for a folded blanket, a baguette, a couple of apples, some fantastic cheese, and your favorite bottle of wine. So head out for a little sun-shiny feast… and look cute while doing it! There is no reason not to wear a flirty little dress like this one for most any occasion (and apparently everyone agrees because it’s almost sold out).

shamrock frock

Avoid annoying pinches for not wearing green… and look great doing it! Truly, this beautiful silk dress would shine at any occasion; but what’s a better way to celebrate the Irish than by having a pint wearing something so chic?  It’s not full-on spring yet, so bring along this soft, cuddly Kersh cardigan to ward off the air’s pesky chill.  Bases = covered.
