Weekly Line-We-Love: Velvet.

California line, Velvet by Graham & Spencer, has been a staple at the store for years.  A staple, but not a basic.  We love Velvet for its prints, mixed fabrics (the jersey + gauzy cotton tops are amazing), color and drape.  We love their novelty tops, which look brilliant with denim.  Any denim: skinny, boyfriend, distressed wash.  The Velvet line looks easy, effortless, and special.

Li'l History: 
Velvet by Graham & Spencer debuted in 1997 with a motivation to create fashion forward tee shirts that embodied the laid-back luxe of LA style.  As the line says: "Today it has evolved into full collections recognized for their meticulously crafted, clean elevated staples. Helmed by Creative Directors Jenny Graham & Toni Spencer, the collections are created using only the finest fabrics and are manufactured primarily in the United States."

From Jenny Graham & Toni Spencer:
"LA born-and-raised, it only makes sense that we manufacture the Velvet by Graham & Spencer collection of tees right here in the City of Angels. We place a premium on finding the finest materials available and we highly value the top quality workmanship that can only be found here in small LA production facilities. The results are the timeless, long-lasting basics that you’ve come to expect from Velvet by Graham & Spencer. Above all else, it’s important we’re producing our tees in a fair, safe environment; look out for the MADE IN USA tags on our tees: that’s our calling card that they are made here with love."

The Spring Line:
Bengal print, dot print, gorgeous white lace 3/4 length top, and linen stripe...all these are our spring favorites.  All having amazing detail and versatility in your spring to summer wardrobe (and beyond). Our favorite staple piece has been the crossover Adora top which looks great paired with a patterned skirt or under a jacket!
