What does fall 2014 have in store for us?

We were at the shows Capsule and Coterie last week to do our fall buying. One of the trends that we saw was the oversize, ugly, Grandpa sweater.  We fell for them hard.  Here is how Free People styled it (above).  

Here is another grouping that we found.  Bill Cosby better hang onto his wardrobe!  Are you ready for this?!

Garance Dore

Traveling to the shows has been difficult this year - the weather has been horrid, we've all been sick and adding the Superbowl to the mix didn't help.  I finally made it to NYNOW after a cancelled flight, re-booking so I would actually have time at the show and then another storm hit NYC.  

Rifle Paper Co. was on my list of must see stops because I was super excited to check out the new collaboration with Garance Dore.  BONUS!  She was there with her boyfriend Scott Schuman!

Dream come true.  If only I could have stopped shaking...

Harsh winter blues

This winter has been rugged!  Who wants to strip down to try clothes on when you can't leave the house with less than three layers on! The only thing that can lift our spirits is new merchandise.  We got in Maison Scotch this week and we are obsessed with the La Parisienne aquarium jeans.  

Here's to warmer days because it's sad that 12 degrees feels "mild".

Uh oh

I just came across this article - The 10 things that only fashion people love.  We currently have 4 out of the 10 things in the shop.  That doesn't sound so bad but we don't carry shoes (2 of the items) or eye glasses.  

This one really got me - what is wrong with leather sweatpants? I type that, I can imagine them being styled completely wrong.  We currently have a perforated black faux leather in from BLQ.MKT that I am coveting.  

What could be simpler than a jumpsuit?!  Not ideal party wear...but throw one on with some jewels and you are ready for work.  We currently have a variety of jumpsuits in- a jersey piece from BB Dakota, denim from Free People and a rayon overall just came in the other day.   

The last one that really got me was neoprene.  Whatev.  It's easy to care for, fun to wear and can hold a great shape! We currently have a great collection in from Clover Canyon.  To die for.

Meet mine.  When my friend Kirstin pointed this image out to me, I had to take a double take.  Was that really me?  Wait - I don't own any of that clothing and I had to cancel my trip to NYC...but for a hot second...I almost thought it was.  

Update to this post - I got to meet Garance Dore at the NYNOW show.  I told her about this picture (she had never seen it).  I felt like an idiot telling her how I thought we looked alike but I couldn't stop babbling...or shaking...
