New arrivals from Red Engine include a fabulous denim skirt, and a new wash of the Cinder jean. Both these pieces have a classic easy fit, and the clean design we love from Red Engine.

This is the Lucky Brand Riley boyfriend jean. Slouchy in the right places, little bit fitted in other places, this jean always looks hip and relaxed. Wear it with everything from a fitted Velvet tee (like this), to a cozy cardigan. And we have it in the perfect wash.

Often in this blog (and by "often" I mean all the time) we recommend you wear a tunic or dress or skinny jean with "a great pair of boots." Here are some pics of exactly what we are getting at. The Miz Mooz tall boot is as versatile as a fall/winter boot can get. I have this boot and I wear it with everything from Johnny Was dresses to Red Engine jeans. The other sweet thang is from Sergio Tomani and is endlessly chic with its little heel and lacing at the back. Where can you get these? Down the street at Sadies. Give a shout-out to my girl Betsy. She's a gem.

So our first delivery of the Coobie bra lasted a little over a week. We have a replenishment of lots of colors in the scoopneck and lace styles. The Coobie is a one-size seamless bra. It has become a quick customer favorite!
One of our favorite fall "looks" at Helena's is the embellished or print knit dress with tights and a great pair of boots. It's an easy, chic look that can go from day to night to weekend. Johnny Was LA, our favorite embroidered dress line, blessed us with a huge delivery of dresses and tunics this morning. We have the "Christina" (shown)in black and stormy twilight (purple). We also have the belted Aubrey dress in marine, the Donatella in black and chocolate, and the Mari tunic in black.

We are replenished in a Helena's customer favorite, the Necessitees cotton shrug. This open front lightweight cardy is stylish and versatile, looking great over dresses, printed tees, lacy tanks, and everything in between. We have new pieces in rust, grey, and black (shown).
The Beautiful Anokhi kimono robes are back in stock here at Helena's and we couldn't be happier to see these light and cheerful prints, especially on this very grey and rainy day. These are the best robes ever. 100% cotton handblock printed by artisans in India, they make the perfect gift for a loved one, or snap one up for yourself. Choosing a favorite is hard, but one of ours is the Purple Strawflower with it's allover floral print in calming tones of purple, blue and tan.

Effie's Heart has always had a winning skirt in the ever-popular "Seven-Year Skirt." We love it. We have it in two colors: black and heathered navy. However, there's a new version in the house. The Bellini has the same great fit and vintage flavor with a little ruching and a dash of mesh at the hem. It's lovely. We have it in the color shown.

Ok, there's lots of reasons why we're all crazy for Kensie this season. Look at this top. Seriously. Jessica and I talked for ten minutes today exclusively about this top. (Indeed we can go-on about the things we love.) Pretty cherry and pink floral on a light cocoa background. Easy sleeve and neckline with a loose body. And...a little chain belt to pull it in at the waist. Great with narrow leg black pants and a big pair of earrings.
Three pretty sweaters from Kensie arrived today, including this Fair Isle beauty in neutral tones. This drapey cotton sweater is super soft, with a traditional fall print. Samantha, our newest Helena's staffer, thinks this tonal geometric print is one of the best knits this season!

With Hazel, it's all in the details. This top has stunning beading on the front, a border of mesh at the hem, and a scoop of lace on the back. Wear it to a special party with a little dove-grey cardigan. Simple beauty.
We have a long-time crush on Three Dots. This well-known knit line has gone through a major fashion transformation in the last year. Designer Pegah Anvarian came on as Creative Director and modernized the prints and styles of the dresses and tops. These two dresses from the fall collection have the traditional easy fit that made Three Dots famous, but with vibrant updates on form and color. To see Pegah show her favorite fall styles and preview the spring line, click here.

So many customers told us that this is their favorite bra, that we brought it in as soon as we could. There are raves all over the web about the comfort and construction of this one-size bra. It's seamless. It has removable pads. It's comfortable, and bust flattering. We have the scoopneck and the lace versions in LOTS of colors. All are $22. Come try a Coobie!
Nally & Millie has outdone themselves with their print dresses and tunics this season. This scroll print dress was in the store for a few days before selling out. Now...it's back!! Looks great with legging and tights!

The shape of this dress is exceptionally great on the pregnant body. The little drape at the neckline, the pleat at the belly, and the soft fabrication is divine. Wear it with legging and flat knee boots, or with tights and an adorable ankle-boot.
