Emma's Favorite Look: Day to Night, Night to Day.

I choose this vibrant Glam top and “Painted Black” Principle denim to match. Whether I am heading to the fashion design studio, grabbing a coffee with a friend or seeing a show in the city this is my “day to night” look. Joy’s convertible clutch bag is sleek and minimal.  Bracelets or bangles are a must have for putting together an outfit me; I love the contrast of metal and precious stone. This outfit is versatile, flirty and pulled together. Time to hit the streets! –Emma Hill, Helena's Inventory Supervisor.

Fall Denim Must-Have: The Grey Skinny

Your fall denim staples are likely pretty standard and versatile: black denim, dark-rinse, a medium wash, and perhaps a distressed wash to keep yourself hip and current. A brilliant way to refresh your fall/ winter denim is with a new grey! Pair these with Everything! Navy sweater and tank boots! A black poncho and leopard flats! A navy and red plaid button down and Converse sneakers! You can see where we are going here. This is your new neutral.

Our two favorite Greys in the house right now are the Red Engine Scorcher in Vintage Grey (top), which is a mid-rise skinny.  And the DL1961 Premium Denim Florence in Craft, which has a slightly higher rise. Both have a great fit and are a medium grey that boast a huge versatility with your fall to winter sweaters and tops! Come into Helena's and get you favorite greys!

Join us at our Belmont store on Saturday to support the family who suffered a recent house fire in our neighborhood.

Cushing Square residents Abby and Tara Donner experienced a devastating house fire in early September. Thankfully, they and their two daughters were unharmed, but they did lose all of their possessions. The family is currently in rental housing in Belmont while they begin the long road toward rebuilding their home and their lives.

Please support this local family while supporting your local businesses!  This Saturday, October 3rd, several Cushing Square merchants, including Helena's, Wescott Merchantile, Revolve, and Karrena Maraj Jewelry, are holding a fundraiser for the Donner family. Participating stores will accept cash collections and donate a portion of the day's sales to the family. If you are unable to come in person, you can always find the "Donate Now" button on the family's facebook page, by clicking here.

Thank you!!
