New Envi Dress!

This envi dress is a lovely addition to your spring-to-summer wardrobe.  Looking for a piece to wear to spring baby shower and summer weddings?  This easy dress has a longer hemline in a soft knit.  But the best part is the print!  Looks great belted or as shown.

Fresh new styles from Tulle at Helena's!

Tulle's spring deliveries are particularly delicious.  As a lady who has a thang for rick-rack, the sweet little tank on the left meets all my spring fashion dreams for a fresh look.  The dusty blue slub knit sweater looks great with white denim.  And that skirt on the right has a painted floral print.  Very pretty with a tank and denim jacket.

Gorgeous print maxi dress from Velvet.

One of the highlights of a buying trip I made to NYC last fall was seeing this dress in the Findings Showroom.  This tribal print maxi-dress was sampled in this color, with the little brown tie belt.  I said, "ohmygod" to my rep, and she replied, "I know."    This is the dress I want to be wearing all summer with bronze strappy flat sandals.  It is the dress I want to share with all the women I love, because it is comfortable and flattering and oh-so-chic and effortless.  (I love you Nina Garcia.)  Elle magazine picked this dress as a favorite on the Velvet website.  This maxi is at Helena's Arlington.

New Velvet tops, dress and skirts!

 The new Velvet delivery is smashing!  From the top: we have this maxi dress in America blue (it has sold so well we have reordered it in two colors),  we have the capsleeve eyelet top in palmetto green,  the hi-low skirt we have in black, and the bottom cotton/silk print top is at Helena's Arlington in navy.  These are great pieces for your spring wardrobe!

Lovely Spring Maggy London & London Times


Maggy London & London Times are NYC dress lines with amazing print, color and tailoring.  We have new dresses from these lines in both the Arlington and Belmont stores.  These two lovlies shown are in Arlington: the  ikat sleeveless dress, and the wide sleeve multi-print.

Breezy Top from Jack BB Dakota.

The line Jack from BB Dakota is a new addition for us this spring and we are thrilled with its showing!  This light blouse is super feminine with its eyelet detail an the bust.  My favorite feature is the open scoopneck which differentiates it from many of the higher-neck tops for spring.  Perfect top for tomorrow's warm weather!

Fresh color and on-trend fashion from XCVI.

The Naples top from XCVI is one of the best examples of the easy, oversized top for spring.  With a bit of a dolman sleeve, and a crocheted panel in the bodice, this top looks great with colored denim or a dark skinny jean.

Orange is the color of spring: Fossil KeyPer bags at Helena's.

New bags & accessories arrived from Fossil KeyPer: wallets, wristlets, 3-zip bags, and lots of new handgag styles.  My favorite is a convertible fold-over clutch.

Protect your pretty peeps.

Pretty in all shades from neutral to colorful!  Our sunglasses are in!  Come find your favorite pair.
