Fossil's Colorful Crossbody Bags!

A new delivery from Fossil came in this week, and they are lovely. One of our favorite shapes is this square cross-body bag, which is just the right size for all your essentials. But one of the best things about this bag is the comfortable "fit". It sits flat on the body, and is light and easy on the shoulder. We have it in both these prints as well as solid black and solid orange. This Key-Per bag is $58!

New Prairie Underground

Our latest order of Prairie Underground arrived yesterday. Among the gorgeous new styles are the Le Fay Hoodie, which is a shorter, trimmer hoodie than the short Cloak hoodie. We have the Le Fay in natural and midnight(navy).
Remember the fantastic Mothette dress that we all loved so much? Well, Prairie did a blouse version this season which we have in black. This fitted, ruched top is super flattering and like all Prairie has an edgy vibe and fantastic silhouette.

Pretty in Plum from Sweet Pea.

Our newest top from Sweet Pea is drapey and falls away in all the right places. But the real beauty is the color. Fresh shade of plum in a subtle python print. Perfect with Red Engine Cinder jeans.

Pretty pieces in our window...

Our newest window display is lovely, thanks to Jessica. The top look is an LaMade dress with a BelgoLux belt. The middle dress is from Caite, shown here over an LaMade yellow tank. And the striped racer-back tunic is from Mystree. It has a little zipper detail on the back.

Crazy for you....

This striped Dex cardy has been the runaway hit for spring tops! We have re-ordered it too many times to count. And here's's really perfect. It's pictured here with a yellow Last Tango tank, a Bohm necklace, and a Nusantara scarf. The scarf is obscuring the little button detail on the collar of this cardy. Come take a look...before it disappears again.

Love these sandals from Sadies!

The Alex sandal from Miz Mooz is my new favorite shoe for spring. I got these at Sadie's (after a half hour of chatting with Betsy and her lovely customers) in East Arlington. Today, I wore them at the NY fall buying shows...which means walking, walking and more walking. My Alex sandals proved flexible and comfy all day, and into my evening train-ride home. Lovely!
