November blog


Posted on October 30 2023

Welcome back to all our DJ snowbirds!  I hope you had a wonderful summer and are ready to enjoy a glorious season in your happy place!

If you read my blog, and I appreciate all who mention it to me when they see me in the stores, you know I’ve been busy selecting wonderful new collections to tempt you with.  I love this time of year- the colors and textures are so rich!

By now, I hope you are able to get in the mood for some sweaters!  Whether cotton, a blend, or cashmere, solid or print - we have all your bases covered!

I know there are some DJ girls who can’t wear cashmere, so these new pieces are perfect.  Nice neutral colors of ivory, gray or navy in an assortment of  styles that work for everyone! Love a turtleneck?  This elbow sleeve is perfect!
  Great with any of your jeans or Nili Lotan pants.
Prefer a crew or v-neck?  We have those for you too!

There’s even a poncho- always an easy  piece to pack when you’re traveling or need that extra bit of warmth!

Of course, you can’t go wrong with Minnie Rose!  Always a favorite - the perfect weight for our Florida weather.  This frayed edge cashmere crew neck is as light as a feather and offered in wonderful basic shades.

Want something a bit more avant garde?  I know there are  my DJ girls who love skulls - well, here you go!

  And how fun is this shrunken studded jacket with their matching tank?  A great way to elevate any outfit.

For those of you who haven’t been introduced to the Swiss line Frenckenberger yet, this duo of designers gleaned their talents working with Rick Owens.  Known for their simplicity, comfort and luxe fabric, their pieces are sure to hold a special place in your heart - and Fall wardrobe.

If you have shopped with us for a bit, you know my love for the Italian line Avant Toi.  The colors, fabrics and hand painted detail create timeless works of art!  

You can’t go wrong with their classic round neck, wool/cashmere blend pullovers in rich shades of sepia, crocodile green or dark navy.  A must have look for the menswear trend for Fall or pair with one of Mason’s cargo pants and a great boot.

And don’t forget one of their stunning shawls - truly a work of art!

This laminated cardigan is a piece that can take you anywhere!  Dress it down with a white ribbed Revel tank top and your favorite pair of  Moussy jeans

or dress up with one of Peter Cohen’s classic wide leg pants.

Be sure to mark your calendars for a special event in our Boca location Sat December 9th with their National Sales Representative Sabrina Verrando featuring Avant toi decorative home pieces!

So now that we gave you all  your sweater options, let’s talk about all the wonderful pants you can choose from!  Whether you're a denim girl, prefer the relaxed fit of a cargo or the menswear trend of a sophisticated trouser - they’re all here for you!

Fit and fabric are always our main concerns, and Italian line Mason’s nails it! With options of either a narrow or wide leg cargo, you’re sure to find a style that speaks to you! 

Don’t you love the scarf at the waistband of the Chile City slim cargo?  So many fun colors you can pick up on. 

Trousers are such an important look for the season and to have a matching jacket just takes it to the next level.  Clean, classic, sophisticated.  What makes it special? The hint of a metallic thread woven through the tweed!


The hint of a metallic thread woven through the tweed!  Not a suit girl, pick up on the menswear vibe with a fabulous vest instead.

 Perfect to wear over a classic white blouse from TWP or a simple crew neck sweater.

Of course, there’s always the need for something a bit dressier - I know some are getting ready for club openings and season kickoffs!  

I always find some great satin pieces when I’m in Paris. Whether the tank top and cargo pant fit your needs

or you like the versatility of an easy v neck top and flowy skirt, they’re wonderful pieces to add to your wardrobe- and how gorgeous is this rich shade of mahogany?

If you haven’t been introduced to Peter Cohen yet, you’re in for a treat.  Whenever anyone asks me who my go to designer is for dressy - he is it!  His fabrics are the finest, silhouettes elegant and timeless.  The simplicity of his styling lets the wearer be the star (how fitting that a gold star is his only logo)!  
His iconic faux wrap Sketch dress is not only elegant, it’s comfortable to wear!  Choose his pebble texture in this charcoal grey.  Add a heel and some fantastic jewelry to dress it up,

or throw on a coat, duster and boot to transition to a more casual vibe.

Want to go all out?  Opt for the mottled gold for the real wow factor!

Make sure to keep an eye on your emails for our special event Peter Cohen event with Sales Director Heidi Richardson this month.  Always a fabulous chance to select amazing pieces for your upcoming occasions. 

I hope everyone received our beautiful Fall newsletter.  If not, please ask for a copy when you’re in the stores -  you’ll be inspired- and make sure we have your correct mailing address!

Looking forward to another wonderful season of fashion!
