Cha-cha changes

To celebrate our upcoming ninth birthday, we did some minor store renovations. Say goodbye to the vertical rack/shelving system and to our green on green interior.  

Here is a picture from a few years ago - notice the wall and trim color and the shelving behind the counter.  
All gone.  We have a new built in unit to display products.  We're featuring hand poured soy candles in vintage glassware and on the counter is our new handbag line - Allibelle.  The walls are coventry grey and all of the trim is now white.  Clean and simple.
And here are the new wall units.  I love not having the flow broken up by the racks and it feels so much roomier!  Now we're just waiting on the new dressing room seating and lights...

I'm going to NYC again- the catch is that this trip is only for the day. Yipee?!?!  I'm not so sure about it.  I'm leaving on the 6am flight and returning at midnight.  Am I crazy?

Mardi Gras 2012

Nicolette's Mardi Gras windows were inspired by an image of a flying PegasusShe recreated them using her childhood horse collection, some donated scraps of fabric and some help from a sculptor friend (he designed the wing armature)They're lovely and have wowed many who pass by the shop.

Since they (and who gets to decide) moved the Mardi Gras parade to Main Street, it's a much quieter affair on Church Street.  Not that we're not thankful but we still get the drunk crazies in the shop.  We just don't get to watch them from the safety of our windows anymore.

I spent three days at the Coterie show - fall is going to be fabulous.  There's a whole new color palette - burgundy, teal and gold.  Gorgeous.  French Connection is always my favorite and you can see that they got the memo on the colors.  
BB Dakota also looked amazing.  They had some rich textures, with shots of fur.  I was equally impressed with their sister line Jack.  
Free People was cute - they were really into the peter pan collar and nerdy school girl chic.  They didn't leave their bohemian girl in the dust but updated her with some edgy pieces.  
Overall, this is will be a lux fall filled with yummy sweaters, gorgeous bags, sparkle dresses and to die for accessories. xoxox
