Worn Jeans: Jasmine Crop in new color for Spring.

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.

Three Dots Top in Pale Pink.

Sweet v-neck with little button-down tabs at the collar and woven panels at the shoulder. But the best part is the color: a pale dusty pink that is perfect for spring. Pair it with a the Worn Jasmine ankle-zip crop in silvery grey.

Navy & Orange: A Lovely Pair.

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!

New Knits Arrive from Tulle.

Yesterday brought beautiful knits from Tulle. This bell-sleeve yoke dress in khaki is divine. Also new: a short-sleeved crochet dress in black, and a gorgeous antique white crocheted cardigan.

These on-trend studded wallets from Shiraleah are buttery soft and roomy, with lots of compartments for all your many cards. And as always with Shiraleah, you get a LOT of fashion at a perfect price ($18).

Love the Garance Dore blog.

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.

WBUR's "On Point" features Diane von Furstenberg.

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.

Helena's CLOSED today at 1 PM.

Again, due to the blustery storm, we will close early today at 1 PM. If you have to be out on the roads today, please drive carefully.
