Weekly roundup

  • Islay camis, bras, and bandeaus are back in stock! We have all 3 styles in white, nude and black.
  • Just wanted to highlight the perfect black turtleneck we have in store by Vanessa Bruno. It’s a great layering piece for the season and polished enough to wear on it’s own.
  • We have only 1 pair of the Hansel from Basel charcoal grey ribbed thigh high socks left. Stop by today or tomorrow if you’ve been eyeing them.
  • It’s getting cold out there. Keep warm with a Eugenia Kim knit or felt hat.
  • Thank you to all those who attended and participated in last night’s workshop, Translating Fall Trends. We hope you had as much fun as we did! Have a great weekend :)

If I wear a sweater and a scarf, I’ll be alright

distinkt scarves (78)

It’s been getting a little colder each day, but it’s not yet full-on winter coat time. I’ve been getting away with a cashmere sweater and some sort of scarf. We just got these ones in and we’re loving the variety. They make great gift items. Dare I say, start your holiday shopping now? Yup, too soon.

Hey Girl, here’s what’s coming

We’re pleased to announce the addition of Girl by Band of Outsiders to our Spring 2011 lineup. For a couple of years now, I’ve been a little bit fascinated by Scott Sternberg’s line, Boy by Band of Outsiders. A $1,750 boyfriend blazer was something I couldn’t have, but I knew I wanted — I wanted a piece, any piece from his line. So when I read that Scott was launching a second, less expensive women’s line, Girl, I was on the phone with his people that minute.

Scott is based in Los Angeles and his new line is very floral and feminine… rightly named Girl. When I saw the collection in New York I was blown away by the beautiful prints and easy bodies. I think you’ll be too. Girl by Band of Outsiders arriving Spring 2011.
