August blog


Posted on July 30 2022

I hope everyone has had a chance to enjoy some fun times with family and friends!  That doesn’t even begin to explain the amazing time Steve and I just had in Capri
at one of our best friend’s daughter’s wedding
- despite the aggravation of 26 hours traveling (the new reality). The idea of getting Apple air tags for our luggage is a definite for our next excursion after way too many friends lost their luggage for days!  
So, I know you’re not ready to start thinking about Fall, but I can’t help but share some of the fabulous new groups that are already hitting the stores!  After all, it’s always fun to have something hanging in the closet, just waiting for that first dip in temperatures!
The first thing I start thinking about when I think Fall? Denim! It’s just so hot in the summer, that by the time Fall comes, I can’t wait to throw on a pair!  Whether boyfriend’s
are your style of choice or you prefer a slimmer cut, I love R13’s new Dirty Kelly wash. Denim can take us almost anywhere these days - going casual?
Throw on a Minnie Rose frayed edge tank.

 This La Prestic Ouiston blouse in a fun leopard print is another great option -

or what about this Forte Forte hand embroidered piece?


Speaking of blouses, they are always such a perfect staple and if you haven’t seen CP Shades cotton/silk offerings, you’re in for a treat!  As always, the colors are amazing but the fabric is not to be believed! You can’t go wrong with the 1 pocket Sloane blouse

or choose the ruffle front.

There’s even this fabulous tunic!

If you have your share of Frank & Eileen’s tattered denim blouses, it’s time to throw in a new fabric - cotton crinkle!  So sophisticated in black!

 Of course, Fall also means fabulous sweaters!  From cotton, cotton/cashmere blends, cashmere or light wools - there’s something for everyone!  Ever since the day we opened our doors - 35 years ago- I’ve loved offering wonderful sweaters to our clients. Yes, even though we’re in Florida-it must be my Northern roots! From the lightest cashmere/silk in this stunning royal blue Avant Toi crop cardigan

to an oversized boyfriend sweater from R13

and you can’t go wrong with a classic pullover in cotton/cashmere from Minnie Rose - her colors are always on point! 

And how cozy is this rugby stripe?

And the perfect shoe for Fall?  The love of clogs continues with this ultra comfy, cork clog from Pedro Garcia. How great is the stud detail?

It’s time to freshen up those Tee shirts - and the unique colors and prints of Gilda Midani are a fun addition! Easy, relaxed fit - and versatile! They kick any jean, Sundry pant, or Frank & Eileen capri up a notch!

Rather throw on an easy, cotton dress?  Another wonderfully creative designer, Raquel Allegra, offers this tye dye option -perfect color to transition into Fall. 

Wear now with a Tkees sandal or sneaker, later with a R13 oversized cardigan and bootie!   

You can’t go wrong with a wonderful, boot-leg pant in black.  If you’ve never worn Avenue Montaigne’s pants in their classic techno fabric, be prepared.  It’s sure to become an all time favorite!  Perfect to take you from daytime straight out to dinner, pack for traveling or wear to work - and they’re washable!

California designer Jaga never lets us down with fantastic separates that just have that little something special - whether it’s seaming on the leg, a special cuff to the sleeve or a frayed hem - they’re pieces that make a statement.

So now enjoy the rest of your summer and let’s look forward to a fabulous Fall!
