How to wear pants to your holiday party!

The answer is: wear the coated denim legging from DL1961 in black.  They are a mid-to-high rise skinny jean with so much stretch, you could execute a perfect yoga-posture, if the party called for it.  (I would like to be at that party).  Wear this with something ultra-feminine, like a black lace peplum top from Only Hearts, or with a fuzzy pullover sweater from Wooden Ships.  And the shoe?  Oh girl, the possibilities are endless.  A textured  red pump (or gold, or blue)!  A bootie made of perforated suede!  Create your own, fabulous look all based around this great pair of pants.  They are at Helena's Belmont!

Our gorgeous Franklin Street window!

Our Nutcracker inspired holiday window on Franklin Street in Arlington! Thanks to our team, lead by manager Jessica, who created this beautiful display!  It even won a local award!

Hello Holiday Tulle!

This new sweater from Tulle is winning over staff & customers!  It has a little shimmer in all that colorful knit beauty!  Come see this and all the new pieces from Tulle!

Make it our own.

This colorblock dress from Maggy London is pretty just as it is.  However, we love to help you personalize every outfit.  You can wear this with a little black belt, or a beaded tie belt, or top it off with a print scarf. Or do as we did here, taking inspiration for the hues of a statement necklace to changing the palette.  It looks unique & smashing!

Beautiful colors in this drapeneck dress from Three Dot!  The fashion possibilities for this piece are endless!  Wear it belted, as shown; top it with a blazer for work; or with a sequined cardy for a holiday party!

You need a new coat. It's cold, ladies.

Bright. Blue. Beauty.

Cobalt, sapphire, royal, Egyptian, ultra-marine...all striking bright, saturated blues.  This drapeneck top from Ella Moss is the best in blues, with black faux-leather trim at the shoulder.  Wear it under a black blazer as a great work-look.  Take off the jacket for a stunning reveal for an evening-look.  For the record, Ms. Moss calls this cobalt.  :)

Dress this up or down.

This is the perfect fall sweater to go from work to weekend.  Wear it to the office with an Only Hearts Pencil skirt in charcoal, and a print scarf in cream, grey and black.  Then put it on Saturday morning with distressed jeans and your favorite low boots for coffee with your best-friend.  It's all good in this beautiful pullover from Three Dots!

Casual Beauty in Black and White.

We love the palette of black, charcoal, silver-grey and cream for fall and winter.  It's classic, simple. versatile and chic.  Here are three pieces from a recent Splendid delivery that we LOVE.  A three-quarter sleeve pullover, a drape-neck sleeveless top that is spleckled with gold thread, and a gorgeous striped pullover with covered buttons and a solid back. 

Cozy cold-weather looks.

Get inspired by Sarah Hyland's stylish bundled look!  This look is all about layers, skinny jeans, and a hip-length jacket in a mix of black & neutrals.  Get this moto jacket in black and white at Helena's.  Chic zipped up or not!

And the skinny jean?  The Florence from DL in Thornton, a classic, clean, vintage-wash American blue jean.  We have LOTS of scarves to choose from, but for this look go for a solid, supe-soft oversized scarf, like this one from Paisley Road.

It's cold!

So the chill is on...finally!  With the cold fall weather here, you need a new jacket.  This beautiful faux sherpa jacket from Ella Moss is on everyone's must-have list!  And it's at Helena's!  The collar is a creamy white color that is soft and flattering next to the face.  The arms are a stretchy lined-knit.  Perfect addition to your fall wardrobe!
