Maximize Your Summer. April 29 2013, 0 Comments
Every girl should have at least one maxi dress in her closet. It’s such a versatile style and it’s super easy to dress up or down, depending upon the occasion.
We love that a maxi dress can make any woman look glamorous in an instant- pair it with heels and some statement jewelry, and you’ll automatically radiate elegance.
If you’re going for more of a casual look, though, or you’re looking to hit the beach, just accessorize the maxi dress with a floppy hat, a straw bag, some flip flops, and you’ll be good to go!
Check out some of the maxi dresses, and skirts, we currently have online and in-store. Whether you prefer bold patterns or simple solids, we think you’ll find the perfect maxi dress that will allow you to look and feel your best during the upcoming summer months.

Feminine Luxury. Made in USA by David Peck April 23 2013, 0 Comments
David Peck has become our go-to for luxurious, feminine pieces that offer a sublime mix of ethereal meets urban — from garden party, chic city fundraiser to beach wedding. The Houston-based designer not only incorporates sustainable fabrics, including silks and organic cotton in his collections, but he also created his own factory to ensure production quality and restore manufacturing to his beloved hometown.

It’s that time of year where all we want to wear is a cozy jumper. Ace & Jig’s version combines beachy boho with an urban edge for the wanderlust, beach babe or urban warrior.

Right: We couldn’t resist these two customers - roommates and best friends - who both fell in love with the jumper.

JUST IN: Samantha Pleet SS13 Collection April 16 2013, 0 Comments
If you’ve been wondering how to rock the Wolverine x Samantha Pleet Arc Boot in robin’s egg blue (we certainly have), take a cue from the designer’s SS13 lookbook. The designer continues to offer up whimsical pieces in barely-there hues such as fawn and sage, which provide the perfect neutral back drop for colorful, statement accessories.

Product Spotlight: Covet Linen Trench April 04 2013, 0 Comments
We love Covet’s 100% Linen Trench because you can achieve quite a few different looks based on how you choose to wear it; when it’s completely buttoned up, the trench takes on a very sophisticated and structured look, and when it’s left completely open, the trench gives off a very casual-yet-cool vibe. Also, because of its neutral color, this lightweight trench will match with just about anything and everything you already own.
BAGGU: Beige or Black? April 04 2013, 0 Comments
You know when you spot a bag and just know you’ll use it forever and ever? Exactly. And that’s why we’re so happy to have these beautiful oversized leather BAGGU tote bags in the store. Extra-supple, full bodied leather, these bags will last you a lifetime and they’re made right here in NYC. We really love both of them, but if you had to choose between the two colors, which one would you opt for?
Interior zip pocket. 14” wide / 12” high / 7” deep / 10” handle drop. Made in NYC.
