Twinkle by Wenlan movie starlet coat

Although it’s been very warm here lately, we’ve started to think about our options for a Fall coat. The Twinkle by Wenlan Movie Starlet coat is set to arrive at the beginning of October. It reminds us of the old Hollywood movies we watched as young adults at The Stanford Theatre in Palo Alto. Wow, and what a coincidence, they’re showing The Birds tonight — this coat would fit right into Melanie Daniels’ wardrobe!

Dressing for Summer weather

As the weather gets warmer, we sometimes feel our selection in warm-weather clothing is limited. We suggest keeping your outfits simple and elegant like Sienna Miller above wearing a Yoana Baraschi sundress while on the streets. At the store our current favorites are the Wren Navy Shorts with the Wren Inkblot Tee. We also heart the Twinkle Ariel Tank with skinny jeans. Ladies, for the season, the more distressed the better; and while we’re on denim, the lighter the wash, the better as well!
For footwear try flat sandals or ballet flats. Wedge sandals also go very well with summer attire. Wedges in tan leather and a statement bag can finish the outfit.
Linen trousers or a great tulip skirt with a summer blouse make up a work-appropriate outfit. If you’d like to be more creative, a sweet sundress with a cotton cardigan will also keep you cool in the office. To keep looking neat, avoid shorts and tennies and cotton shelf-bra tank tops worn by themselves. We hope you enjoy the weather and have a wonderful week!

3 spring clothing essentials

If you’re like us, you probably have a budget in mind when buying clothes for a new season. Spring clothes are arriving and there will be a lot of choices. We have a few suggestions for you to freshen up your wardrobe. If you’re spending money on clothes, make sure they’re pieces that will carry you throughout Spring and Summer. You’d be surprised at how certain pieces can update your current collection of clothing from past seasons.

  1. Buy 1 new pair of jeans. Whether they are skinny or straight leg, bootcut or trouser style, a new pair of jeans can change the look of your current t-shirts and blouses. We suggest our Found Symone and Agatha jeans. Do you have an old graphic tee that you still love to wear? Wear it with one of the Found jeans, brown leather sandals, gold bracelets and your favorite pair of sunglasses. This outfit can be your go-to outfit for the season.
  2. To stay current, buy a top from the newest collection of your favorite designer. Every season designers have a new theme for their collections. Treat yourself to one of their signature pieces by getting a top. Tops are easy because your can wear them with the jeans, shorts, and skirts you already have. We suggest our Twinkle by Wenlan Ariel tank. Wear this cute little cami blouse with a khaki cargo miniskirt, heeled peeptoe booties and a long gold chain charm necklace for an easy date outfit.
  3. 1 cute sundress will get your through the more dressy occasions of Spring and Summer. Wear it to bridal and baby showers, weddings, special dinners, religious celebrations and birthdays. Our Paul & Joe Sister Vienne Empire Waist sundress will work for all of these events. For chilly evenings wear a fitted cream cardigan. The dress works with both heels and flats!

We hope this helps you the next time you’re out and about shopping. Remember, less is more!

Crazy for Mad Men

Since hearing Matthew Weiner, creator and producer of the television series Mad Men, on NPR’s Fresh Air last summer we’ve been hooked and eagerly awaiting the third season. Mad Men follows the lives of highly competitive men and women on Madison Avenue in New York during the early 1960′s. The story is intriguing, complicated, and at times amusing. We were dedicated viewers after Episode 1. In the show, the men, women and families lived a much more sophisticated and elegant life. Women dressed up and men wore suits.
Mad Men has not only influenced home and office interiors with authentic Mid-Century Modern furniture and housewares, but it has also influenced the revival of the hourglass shape. The dresses and silhouettes of Peggy, Joan and Betty remind of us our new Twinkle by Wenlan Nicely Tied Dress. See our model Ashley in the Twinkle dress below. Very Joan, no?

Paul & Joe Sister Spring: in-store now!

Hope everyone’s weekend is going well. We just wanted to share our new Paul & Joe Sister Spring clothes with you. From left to right: navy paris trench, phoenix print gwen blouse, and beige zeph sweater. The paris trench is fully lined and would look great with the gwen blouse, jeans and flats. We really love the fit of the zeph sweater. It’s long, and we suggest wearing it loose to get that boyfriend sweater effect. Both tops look fantastic with the Magic Shorts*. Mix and match these great seperates from Paul & Joe Sister, and you’ll be set for the entire duration of Spring and even Summer!

*The Magic Shorts are called so because we’ve discovered, through the help of Tiny and Tasty, that they look really good with every top we have in the store. Now isn’t that amazing?

Twinkle short-sleeve shawl cardigan

Hope you had a greet weekend. Today we’re featuring Twinkle by Wenlan’s shawl cardigan from her pre-spring collection. The striped shawl is attached to the sweater and has a generous length to wrap around your shoulders and neck. It’s made from 100% viscose. We love how it’s styled with a neutral colored skirt and open-toe booties. Wenlan Chia has a great eye for color and innovation, and this cardigan is proof. If you’re looking of one unique piece of the season, we highly recommend this one!
