SALE SALE SALE

I feel like I don't need an explanation for how great this skirt is. So I'm not going to (but for the record though, its the Gravity Skirt by Maurie & Eve). The boots are also on sale (whaaaa?? I know.) The Fox boots are actually comfortable. and cute. and have that awesome white detailing along the sole which makes them different than the 8 other black boots in your closet so you should make sure to add these to your wardrobe as well.

Hello!

Lezz be honest, January can get boring. Weather is kinda blah, post holiday feelings are blah, blah blah blah. Silver lining? Post holiday, pre-spring sales. Stores are trying to clear out some space for all those new spring goodies that are coming in. We're excited to be cleaning out inventory and refreshing the store over all. This January retail cleanse is better than any juice, kale, vita-mix cleanse you've ever attempted for so many reasons. For one, there are no dietary restrictions. Second, you can get a handful of great items for a much better deal! Here are a few of our favorites! 

Fala is one of our favorite brands we carry. The materials are always great quality and unique for the piece. This button down shirt dress is no exception. The Aline tunic shirt dress is made of 100% silk, with leather piping along the pockets, its flowy and perfect with skinny jeans and boots. We also love the dress look with a simple slip underneath or throwing it on open buttoned over any outfit. We paired it here with a Sea + Pattern necklace and black jeans. 

Faux fur. Lets talk about it. Or just how great it looks in cropped jacket form. One of the best features about this coat is that you can wear an all black assemble and it doesn't really count as all black because theres that extra fur texture to mix it up. At least that's my reasoning and I stand by it. We also love it over pretty much any outfit, multi-colored or all black. 

Another favorite jacket is the Fifth Label powder blue City of Sound  wrap coat. This is the grande finale folks. An oversized collar and waist tie closure make this such a beautiful coat that hangs perfectly. Not to mention this coat is a STEAL. LITERALLY. A crime worthy STEAL. Do not miss out. This is important. I will be sad to see it go out the door but whoever takes it home is a lucky lady. Oh, and it comes in red. MIC DROP. Check out all the sale goodies HERE

Aside from these, we have so many other really great items that are marked 30% to 70% off. And, if for whatever reason you are unable to make up your mind on sale items, our new arrivals for spring are slowing coming into the store and would love some of the attention as well. January get at us.

ERIN'S PICKS: FALL FAVORITES

October is my favorite month. For one, October means it's Halloween time! Also, it's the first month where I can really start to feel the season change (which means it's time to break out my cold weather clothes.) As someone who relies heavily on layering to style almost all of my outfits, it's a relief when the crisp weather starts to strike. This means I can stop wearing whatever confused summer outfits I've thrown together (I'm calling my summer aesthetic poolside dad) and really start wearing the cozy/more elaborate pieces that I love! We've got some awesome fall pieces in the shop that I've been dying to sport and now is the time!

I believe my style oscillates between laid back/minimal and quirky/fashion conscious. I find the pieces that I am usually drawn towards a) must be cozy b) must be versatile enough to pair with either an easygoing outfit or a more *showstopping* getup c) must be either oversized or perfect for playing with proportions/layering. This outfit checks off all my boxes. I am OBSESSED with this BLQ camo coat. I knew the moment we got it in the shop I had to have it. The camo fleece textile with the contrast black vegan suede, exposed zipper, and oversized collar make it the perfect, unexpected piece. I throw it over everything. I also love this Knot Sisters dress. I usually don't go for body con, the but ribbed texture with the balance of the high neck and the slightly longer hem (it's all about balance) really makes it the perfect all purpose dress.

Lately I've been loving the idea of monochromatic outfits. Picking pieces of the same color/tone and using texture, weight, length, and fit to create interest in your outfit is one of my favorite trends right now. We in the shop are always dying over our latest Achro Brand pieces and these two are no exception. We can't keep this sweater on the shelves and I never want to take it off. The high neck, oversized sleeves, and incredible texture take it from your average cozy pullover to your fall MUST HAVE. I paired it with this amazing WOOL Achro wrap skirt. I want to wear this skirt with every outfit. The details are incredible and it is so versatile and comfortable, laid back yet innovative. I think next I'll pair it with a collared shirt, graphic pullover fleece, and some low profile sneakers :)

Fun Fashion Tip: If you're low maintenance when it comes to the hairdo department (gulity) October is the perfect month for the every-outfit beanie. I'm obsessed with pom poms and this does not stop at hats. We've got an array of colors in the shop (even some with fur poms!) I took home an oversized black pom beanie and have yet to take it off.

October in Seattle means THE RAIN IS HERE TO STAY! Being a Seattleite usually means having a love/hate relationship with the familiar showers, but I'm not even kidding when I say this: having a Stutterheim in my closet makes me stoked to see downfall on the weather forecast. Before I picked up my Stutterheim I looked like a sad camping dad in my hiking jacket whenever precipitation hit. Now rain means my outfit is going to be even snazzier because I can throw this guy on. They're all PVC coated cotton, designed in Sweden and handmade in Poland. With double welded seams, no rain's getting through this baby! We always have these jackets in a variety of colors and styles (for men and women!) so choosing your favorite is on you :) The most practical fashion choice you can make. I paired my coat with my favorite One Teaspoon merino wool slouch pants.

Words cannot describe how excited I am to finally don my autumn favorites. I've picked up so many great pieces at the shop over time that it was hard to even begin to decide what to share for this season. The great part is that we're always getting in new styles! As a person with a coat/sweater passion, it's hard for me to control myself. But you don't have to :) However you do fall, come down to the shop and we'll hook you up. Now go put on your cold weather faves and enjoy that pumpkin spice latte >:)

TIS THE SEASON FOR DENIM

Autumn is finally here, and I'm declaring Fall 2015 the Season for Denim. From the runways to the streets, denim has taken over, and boy is it having its day. This season is all about updating your classic favorites with new twists and just a little bit of retro influence. From patchwork to bleach detail, raw edges to inventive methods of distress, unexpected touches elevate your wardrobe staples to too-cool stand alone pieces.

No one knows more about elevating denim than Australia's One Teaspoon. The brand specializes in taking tried and true pieces to a whole new level and we're all about it . The Zeppelin Shirt, one of our Fall favorites, hits all of the marks: a chic take on both Western and menswear in a sleek and modern wash that works both on its own or as the perfect lightweight throw-over.

We've seen our fair share of distressed denim this year, but not quite like this. We're obsessed with One Teaspoon's Awesome Baggies, our new go-to black jeans. Skirting the edge between a relaxed boyfriend jean and fashion forward skinny, the Baggies take on distressed a whole new way. Incorporating both fraying and patchwork, these pants add a level of edge and newness to even the most laid back of outfits (plus they'll still keep ya warm!)

I love this outfit because a mixture of textures, colors, lengths, and detailing (like cuffing, layering, and rolling) has made DENIM ON DENIM look easy, polished, and current. Throw on a tee (or button your shirt all the way up) and add updated mule, sneaker, or bootie, and you're the Denim Queen of the streets. 

Here's the great thing: denim will never go out of style; it's just always evolving, which allows us to always try new things (remember your bedazzled back pockets?) So have fun with it! Whether you want to get crazy and rock a jean culotte with a denim duster, or a timeless jean and top combo with new twists, we say go for it and embrace everything this season's denim forecast has to offer. 

Happy Styling

HANNAH'S Picks: Just Female

Most of the time I just want to dress like Pernille Teisbaek. I mean, I never thought I wanted to rock a over-sized blouses with knee length sleeves until Teisbaek made it look amazing. And Swede Columbine Smille? Don't even get me started on her all black ensembles that make my wardrobe hurt. Those Scandinavian ladies (along with a hand full more) own a sidewalk when it comes to street style and cool girl trends. There's definitely something to say about Scandinavian aesthetic and design and our new line Just Female is no exception. I love how Just female takes on various  fashion trends and incorporates them with clean, minimal but unique aesthetic. They have a strict quality over quantity rule which translates into great materials that are practical without taking away from the design. For them, there's no such thing as a plain black cardigan. It will have extra textured details, interesting lines and of course be made up of something that feels like heaven, making it impossible not to add to your closet.

This brand isn't our first Scandinavian designer and hopefully won't be our last. When we got our Stutterheim raincoats I had to take some serious time to reflect on which one would come home with me. I just can't get enough of those minimal, monochrome vibes.  It seems to be catching too. As we're in the midst of Fashion Weeks, lines are following suit after those cold-climate designers. And, although New York and Paris Fashion weeks will always reign supreme, Copenhagen and Stockholm Fashion weeks have turned heads and rarely disappoint. With brands like Marie Ganni, Wood Wood, COS, Acne, Mads Norgard, Whryd, Samsoe & Samsoe, (the list could go on and on), its hard not to take notice - they storm the way in strong design and minimal statement. I highly recommend doing a good stalking of some Scandinavian street style celebs and brands. I do it on a daily basis probably. Or, better yet, come in and check out some of the brands for yourself. We can gab about how much we love them.
