Love this pant! We featured this pant from Worn Jeans in black for fall. It has returned to us in a light chalk-grey. This looks smashing with the new flowy white tops from Mystree, or with any shade of pink and purple.

For all you fans of the Nally & Millie reversible skirts we just received two new prints, one in each length.
A simply perfect piece, this flattering double layer skirts reverses to black. Spectacular for traveling, wears well now and well into Spring and Summer. These fly out of the shop fast( sold one this morning as I was taking it out of the box!). Don't worry if you miss it, we will be getting these delightful skirts in all Spring long in a variety of beautiful prints.

This crisp combination of navy and orange is front and center at Helena's this month. Orange is a hugely present color in spring apparel from nearly all of our designers. Dianne (who is always on top of trends) brought in the newest issue of Real Simple magazine, which featured orange in all its versatile beauty. Click here to see it stylishly paired with navy, then pink, and then violet. Smashing! P.S. The jacket and top above are from Tulle, both in-store now!

Garance Dore is a French illustrator and photographer who writes a beautiful blog about design, art, fashion and all other things she loves. She will, for instance, take a photograph of a well-dressed woman in Chelsea just because that woman is wearing a scarf that catches her eye. I love the simplicity of her blog, and the obvious joy she gets from people-watching on the streets of Paris and New York. Click here to explore her world.

Yesterday, iconic fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg was interviewed on the local WBUR program "On Point." Host Tom Ashbrook was audibly star-struck (and more than a little bit charmed) by her artsy nature and strong message of female empowerment. DvF tells women to wear clothes that are comfortable, stylish and make them feel strong, a view we, at Helena's, share with her. My favorite quote from her interview on NPR is, "I want to drive my own bus." To hear the interview, click here. If you want more, click here to read a 2008 interview with The Huffington Post.
