Sweaters from woodenships at Helena's

The knit line woodenships has expanded their line for fall. This sweater, the "Ruthie", is both fitted and relaxed. An easy sweater with a slight bell sleeve and a button at the fold-over neckline. A great sweater to pair with jeans.

More delicate, modern pieces from Hazel.

Hazel has a palette of charcoal grey and soft purple in a recent collection. At right see a delicate tiered skirt, and a dress with an beaded neckline. Both great pieces at great prices.

The Luna Dress.

This dress can go the distance. Wear it to work. Wear it to dinner with your best friend. Pack it in your overnight bag for a romantic weekend away. (I know...this might not happen very often, but if it does, pack this dress). Simply put, its a great feminine dress. We have it at Helena's in a soft turquoise teal.

Print tunic dress from Hazel.

Hazel, one of our favorite lines, has beautiful pieces for fall. This tunic/ dress is one of them. With pretty details like a drape around the waist and a long sash, this is a great day-to-night look.

The Nally & Millie Reversible Skirts for Fall!

Nally & Milllie is a California design company that is BIG on color. Their reversible skirts offer a pop of color and print on one side and a sleek black basic on the other. These skirts have a fantastic fit in an easy and comfortable knit fabric. This print has big blooms in fall trend colors of teal, poppy and gold. See it here with a Sucre Soir orange top, a short-sleeved cardy and a fab stretchy belt!

This skirt has a colorful symmetrical graphic that looks fabulous with a simple, elegant top. Here it's paired with a periwinkle drapeneck top from XCVI. (We have this great top in multiple colors!)

This turquoise and charcoal print from Nally & Millie looks great with dark tops or color. Here it's paired with a gorgeous-cross over top from Velvet.

This Nally & Mille reversible skirt is a bold multi-floral. It's beautifully paired with a modern-meets-retro Effie's Heart top.

Velvet has become one of our customer-favorite lines at the store. These two pieces explain why...they are easy, soft, versatile and look great with denim. The cowlneck with the button tab sleeve is the Lichel. The open cardy is the Foley. Wear then from summer into fall!
