With color! One of the best features of the grey, black, white color palette is that its an easy canvas for color! Love yellow, red, or cobalt blue? Or the new lavenders and pinks for fall? All of these look beautiful mixed with black & white. Such a great way to create versatility in your wardrobe!
There was a lot of energy on the last day of Coterie! With hundreds of designers, there is a lot of ground to cover...miles of show floor to walk.
Yumi London showed us lots of color with the whimsy and prints that we love from this line. It is always a treat to reunite with our rep, Joni, who is a wealth of fashion wisdom and a breath of fresh air at the shows. We love this bird print pullover from Yumi, and have it on order it two colors!
Our newest denim line, DL1961, showed us new takes on basic denim, as well as cropped versions of our favorite fits. Looking for a great spring trouser? DL1961 has a beauty for spring!
We ended our day with a visit to the Leota booth at the Stitch show. We met owner, Sarah Carson, and her amazing team. The spring line looks beautiful, with the same flattering cuts and soft fabrics that we love from this line.
We're back to our home stores in Arlington & Belmont! See you soon!
The big mama Coterie Spring 2015 is happening! Our premium denim lines are showing collections for next season, as well as our favorites fashion lines. It's an exciting show, with lots of designers on-site to show buyers their best pieces!

XCVI created a curated collection of dresses, tops, skirts, jackets and pants in neutrals, chambrays, and a saturated indigo wash. We love the linen split-neck pullover, the enzyme wash pants, and a soft zip-up jacket in bright mango.
