November blog


Posted on October 28 2022

So, is everyone ready for a fantastic season in South Florida?  It’s so wonderful to see all our snowbirds flocking back into town and catching up with all their exciting news from the summer! We’re all enjoying the break in the weather and appreciating how lucky we are to be here!

I hope you follow us on Instagram and Facebook, so you’ve seen the whirlwind of traveling I’ve done in the past month - from NY, to Paris and then LA- to find exciting new designers and cutting-edge fashions you’ll see in the stores for Spring (yes, Spring already)!

But first things first!  For everyone that’s stepping into the store for the first time since last Spring, I know it’s overwhelming!  There are so many fabulous lines in right now- it’s time to grab a friend, have a lunch date and do some shopping!

Everyone’s asking me “What do I absolutely have to have in my closet”?  Well, that’s a loaded question!  There are so many exciting new looks out there, it really depends on you, your comfort zone and lifestyle.  I truly pride myself on offering something for everyone!  

I touched on it in last month’s blog, but one of the easiest ways to elevate your wardrobe is by adding a blazer

I found some wonderful, easy, boyfriend styles in Paris

Great look and priced just right!  I love them thrown over any of the new Raquel Allegra pieces that just arrived- the color palette is fabulous! Choose a fun tee (especially for all the horse lovers out there),

a rich earth tone tank

or their long sleeve ombre mesh top.

Of course, it’s the season for denim! As you know, R13 and Moussy are my tried and true favorites. With all our choices, you're sure to find a style and wash that will be your new favorite.

I know we’ve been waiting all year to be able to bring out some fabulous sweaters!  If you aren’t familiar with CT Plage, they’re woven from the finest cashmere and the softest you’ll ever touch!   Choose from an easy, crew neck pullover or another trend this season - a wonderful duster!

Italian designer Avant Toi always offers something unique!  Known for their artistic elements, this crop jacket is a true work of art.


Going casual? Throw it on over a Revel tee or tank….Dressier?  A beautiful tank from Jaga, Natasha or Olivia does the trick!

Don’t forget to check out our newest collection of their sweaters

.  The most beautiful, delicate colors with  just a touch of shading-gorgeous for any skin tone.

In anticipation of some cooler temps and the urge to snuggle up, how cute are these new Mou's?  You’ll have a hard time choosing between the slipper

or boot - you just might need both!

A truly special line, Frenckenberger is a luxury Swiss brand renowned for its sumptuous cashmere and refined elegance

You can see co-owner Terry-Ann Frencken’s 20 years of experience working with Rick Owens in the collection's simplicity yet utilitarian interpretation of luxury.  Treat yourself this season to a piece that is sure to become a favorite!

 A stunning blouse can take your new jeans to the next level.  This cotton La Prestic Ouiston blouse with silk ruffle collar is a show stopper.  Need something a bit dressier?

If you missed out on our first delivery, we just received the Avenue Montaigne Bellini pant again- narrow leg with a bit of a flair in their Freedom Stretch

Another piece de resistance?  This R13 cut velvet smoking robe!  A truly unique piece you can have a lot of fun with -funk it up with a boyfriend jean and combat boot or go dramatic!

Ulla Johnson offers some beautiful choices for this season. 

Whether you opt for a fun, printed long sleeve tee to wear under your blazer or a jewel tone, bow front blouse- I know you’ll enjoy it!

With holidays just around the corner, this gorgeous dress is sure to make you stand out from the crowd - and you’ll be comfortable!  

An outfit isn’t complete without a great bag.  Inspired by the sight of a chic Parisienne carrying her lunch bag on the streets of Paris, Marie Turnor’s Lunch clutch has been a winner - now in a beautiful, rich tan. The perfect size to carry all your necessities whether you’re heading out for the day or an evening with friends. 

Need something a little smaller? How cute is the new Merci mini bag?


 To all my DJ girls, thank you so much for your inspiration and dedication over the past 35 years.   

You have helped to make Deborah James a leader in South Florida fashion!
