Or this easy dress from the Dutch line, Yest with a bright scarf. Great fall transition looks!

We are thrilled when a woman walks in our store and says, "I am leaving for Italy tomorrow, and I need something beautiful!" There is so much happiness in the anticipation of a trip. It could be to Italy, it could be to the Cape, or it could be to the SOWA market on a Sunday morning. We LOVE to fill the store with pieces that represent that emotion: a compass pendant, a map scarf. Come wander around our shops to find your favorites.
"Henceforth I ask not good-fortune, I myself am good-fortune,
Henceforth I whimper no more, postpone no more, need nothing,
Done with indoor complaints, libraries, querulous criticisms,
Strong and content I travel the open road."

When Christy arrived on her first day at the beginning of the summer, she was wearing a Bella Dahl shirt from her own closet. We said something like, "Oh, Girl, we can set you up." And she hasn't looked back. Here she is wearing a print denim top from the line with her Prairie Underground Denim Girdle Leggings!
There are pieces, often dresses or tops, that exist only in my imagination. It can be the perfect fitted poplin button-up in a shade of dark army-green that I can't find in the marketplace. Or a camel herringbone coat that I want someone, (anyone?!) out there to produce at a good price. And then there are the graphic knits that drift into my dreams in September. I love the principles of color in a vintage Missoni sweater dress, with the darkest zigzag stripe positioned at the waist. Perfection!
This April, I missed a fall buying show. Chelsea and Jess went and when they came back they were thrilled with the preview of a knit sweater dress from Kerisma. Chelsea found a tiny photo in a lookbook to show me, and Jess lovingly described the piece as 'LiaMolly-ish" (a beloved New Orleans sweater line that is no longer producing garments). Last week, when it arrived in the store, our lovely staffer, Sasha, tried it on. With her cascading blonde hair and cherry red lipstick, she looked gorgeous. Sometime, dreams come true, in delightful little ways!

What you wear expresses something about yourself. Wear the pieces you love, every day. We are experts at combining color, print and texture into something unique, beautiful and wearable. This outfit is not only special, but combines pieces that can be worn in so many different ways. Pair the top with Joe's Slouchy Skinny distressed jeans. Wear the skirt with a crimson drapeneck top and a black blazer. Wear the necklace with a simple white tank and black jeans. We LOVE a versatile outfit that leads to a new world a fashion opportunities!
