So we rushed right into Spring on a high note!  What exudes the essence of California more than great wines from Napa Valley and fabulous linens from CP Shades?  Thanks to everyone who made our event so much fun – and congrats to our winnners- Jane and Marie.   We hope you’re enjoying your bottle of Courtney Benham Sauvignon Blanc, Jane!  Marie, we know your CP Shades Wendy pant is a welcome addition to your CP Shades collection!

As always, I strive to find new and emerging designers to introduce to you.  This season is no exception- so let me introduce: 
Veronique Miljkovitch – Born in Paris and schooled in both Paris and Denmark, Veronique’s collections blend a sensuality of texture with a relaxed European fit…just perfect for S Florida living! This  fantastic jacket’s styling and contrast stitching is so much fun and updates so many pieces that I know are already in your closet!

For those of you who remember Mizner Park days, the Italian brand Transit may bring back memories! Their attention to detail, craftsmanship and special finishing are cornerstones of the brand and never fail to disappoint.  I love the ability to mix a fantastic blazer back to my favorite jeans or pair a Frank and Eileen blouse with their easy trouser.

Virgnie de Vinster’s line – V.DE.VINSTER- is a conglomeration of the  world she travels.  India, Peru and Thailand and the intricate fabrics she finds there translates into the fashions she creates.  This amazing dress is so effortless to wear – I can’t wait!

Although Japanese designer Issey Miyake has been an icon in the Fashion Industry for decades, his innovative technology incorporated into his designs is always on trend – especially this season. You can never go wrong with black and white, and these pieces are just stand outs in the crowd.

Living in S Florida, we all know how important it is to protect our skin – especially our faces.  This is where fabulous hats come into play.  Not only do they serve a purpose – they make a fashion statement!  Nothing is more true than the gorgeous straw hats we have in from the Italian line  Angiolo Frasconi.   Direct from Campi Bisenzio – where straw hats came to fame – see which style suits you the best.

And of course, it wouldn’t be Spring without some terrific bags from French designer Jack Gomme.  Their signature technical canvas in an array of amazing colors and shapes should be a staple in your wardrobe.  So lightweight and durable, it’s sure to be the bag you grab ( or pack) as you head out the door.

Hope this gave you some inspiration! Don’t forget to follow us on Instagram and Facebook to get even more fun ideas as all our terrific designers  arrive for the season!
