Chiarakruza Maternity Top Defines Summer

This top from the maternity line Chiarakruza, is, in a word, perfect. Gathered in the right places, draping in the other right places, and in the most enviable of all summer colors, grass green. All this and it's bra friendly. So if your baby bump is ripe for some new adornment, this is the piece for you. If you are not pregnant, it looks just as good on you. Believe me, we have all tried in on here...many times.

MORE New Orla Kiely bags at Helena's

As always, we were delighted to get another shipment from Orla Kiely. Welcome the Dark Multi-Stem print laminated shoulder bag with cotton stem print lining! This high-contrast print is reminiscent of an earlier Orla bag that was nearly eaten off the shelves by our customers! As with all her bags, the inside details include pockets and key chain, and the canvas handles are reinforced with leather. And the big winner for us at Helena's? You can wipe this baby off with a damp cloth. All things in life should be so easy.

We've Got the Power!

New Arrival at Helena's, Spanx Higher Power Power Panties. We love these for creating a smooth palette for your fashion artistry.
"Just how high does Higher Power go? Let's just say the savvy women at SPANX took Power Panties and extended the control above the waistline -- all the way up to just the south of the "twin peaks." SPANX Higher Power eliminates VPL (Visible Panty Lines) and slims, smoothes and shapes the figure from the lower thighs up through the midriff. Plus, there's no binding legband to create bulge on your thigh! Soft hosiery fabric has a flat seam up the front and back."

What you'll be seeing this summer & fall at Helena's

We've been hard at work (ok, it's loads of fun) finding the perfect pieces for the upcoming seasons! This summer we are adding the lines Velvet, 39sixtyone, and Johnny Was to the Helena's collection. In the fall we will see new knits from Wooden Ships, Bask, and Lonia. And soft twill pants and jackets from the gorgeous line G1. And for those of you that have heart-palpitations for this's the long cloak hoody from Prairie Underground. It's as perfect as it looks, and it will be coming to Helena's in black this fall.

Fall in Love with Johnny Was

We are madly in love with our new Olvera St v neck t-shirt from Johnny Was.

Known for their soft and supple fabric, this modal and cotton t is perfect for summer, heavily embroidered with birds and flowers in a fiesta of bright rich colors. Great with jeans, or dress it up with a bright skirt and sandals.

Orla Kiely Multiflower Bags

Flower Power at it's finest. A bold and beautiful new shipment of Orla Kiely bags have landed at Helena's. Check out her latest Multiflower print. We have the maxi sling in The Blueberry colorway and the classic shoulder bag in the strawberry colorway. They look good enough to eat. Delicious color combinations pack a lot of punch, but are still neutral enough to work with a lot of your wardrobe.
