Testament has arrived!

We happily received our first delivery of Testament this week. This line is all about uber-pretty silhouettes in bracing, beautiful color combinations. See breezy print tops in aqua, pink, and creamy yellow, each with charming details in the tailoring. Perhaps a little crocheted neckline, a silk tie at the collar or hem, or a flattering pleat. Seriously pretty. This maxi dress (the Taurus) is dreamy...the definition of an easy dress.

J-41 Shoes: The Incredible Journey

We are suckers for red shoes. Really, we can't resist. So when we saw that J-41 was making our favorite shoe in red, well, we had to have it. We just got our spring shipment of J-41's at Helena's. We have our beloved Journey clog in three colors, red, black and dark brown. These are hands down some of the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. They work well in three seasons and can be worn with or without socks. These have been a Helena's staple for the past 3 seasons and they always sell out fast.

Shout out to our First Lady.

In all the celebrations of a new presidency this week, we must say that Michelle Obama has looked smashing. Her colorful put-together inaugural day ensemble was especially note worthy. Here she is in a lemongrass wool lace sheath and coat by Isabel Toledo, accessorized (perfectly) with green J.Crew gloves. And although this picture doesn't reveal her (bam!) fanstastico shoes...they were there...a pair of dazzling patent leather green Jimmy Choo pumps.

Last Tango Long Cami: Our Favorite Tank

We just received a new shipment of Last Tango long layering tanks. These are a wardrobe essential for all of us here at Helena's. Stretchy and comfy these tanks create a nice smooth foundation for layering, and they don't ride up. We just refreshed our stock, so in addition to having basic colors like black, white and brown, we also have some great new colors like cherry red, teal, jade, Maui blue and eggplant. They are available in 2 sizes, s/m and m/l and at $25.00 a pop they are a real bargain.

Maternity Glamour: Olian "Angelina" Maxi Dress

We are falling all over ourselves for this glam maternity maxi dress from Olian. Sweeping and dramatic, this dress evokes the look of a Greek goddess. Shirred v neck top, with double strand tie, and long flowing skirt. This is the perfect style to show off your beautiful belly. We have this in a lovely pale aqua color. This style works great for non- maternity and post partum as well. This is just one in a long line of fabulous maxi dresses that are coming our way for this spring. Maxi dresses are comfortable, and look fabulous, especially for maternity wear. Take it from fashion icon and all around gorgeous mom Angelina Jolie, who is sporting a strikingly similar style from Rachel Palley below.
