April showers

Vermont weather can be tricky - they say wait a minute and it will change.  We went from 80 degree days earlier in the month to snow showers today - yes snow.  A perfect day to write about bikinis!  
 We have such a great selection of French Connection bikinis in right now - a style for almost everyone!  I've been using some self tanner - so I braved it and tried one on.  I loved the triangle top but the bottoms were a bit scandalous for this Vermont girl.  I can't see myself rocking them out down at North Beach!  Now if I lived in South Beach...

Happy Birthday Sweet Lady Jane!

This is Mary, one of our biggest Sweet Lady Jane fans.  She is someone that truly loves fashion, appreciates fabulous fabrics and likes to explore her creativity through her appearance.  Mary is someone that I think of when people ask - "where would I wear this?"  You just do.  In this photo, she paired a Quicksilver dress with a Corey Lynn Calter vest and obi belt.  She even took the time to explain to a group of customers the many ways in which she can style the vest - as a scarf, use the collar as a hood, as a wrap dress...

Mary also makes a point of stopping in to wish us a happy birthday every year and always brings us a treat! xoxoxo

Happy ninth birthday, Sweet Lady Jane!

Paper Wings

Molly, Rachel, Jenn and Erica
These are two of our favorite jewelry designers - Molly of Molly M Designs and Jenn of Paper Wings.  Erica and I were so excited to meet them in person at the last gift show.  We just got in our order from Paper Wings and would like to introduce you to her latest fiber and metal collection:
This is the sari rope necklace - it's made from recycled Indian saris.  
This is the bar necklace in indigo- these are woven and hand dyed by Jenn.  She was telling us how much the dye stunk up her studio.  
This is the braided silk necklace - also woven by Jenn.  These are some very special necklaces - hand crafted in the US, one of a kind and a great way to make a statement in a lightweight piece.  Come check them out!
