we are excited to announce the arrival of YMC – you must create – a UK brand that creates classic styles with unique details at an affordable price! you can’t beat that. we have cozy wool sweaters, basic tees, hats, a jacket and a nordic scarf.
we recieved our first shipment from Pendleton’s Portland Collection. i’m a portland native so i can’t help but love all things Pendleton! we have piles of blankets at home and now a cool updated collection to sport. i’m crazy about the harding cape, the trench dress and the unisex harding cardigan. shop the collection here!
i saw the show a few days ago and i’ve fallen for Girl by Band of Outsiders! here are my top picks. i saw the collection in person yesterday and it’s just as beautiful and fresh as the pictures with feminine silhouettes, details, and textiles. but it’s not too girly, it’s classic.
we received our fall order from New York designer H. Fredriksson! more beautiful draping and prints make up the collection and are her signature details. i’m in NY seeing the spring 12 collections so i haven’t had time to do my blog posts and new arrivals on the shopping site. all new arrivals will be up on the site next week. in the meantime come by the store to see our fall goodies!
here are my spring picks from steven alan. i love the black and white diamond textile in the dress and suit. the suit would be hard to pull off but the cut and tailoring of the pant and jacket are perfect. there’s nothing like a well fitting blazer. it looks like it’s the same shape as the fall annette blazer that we have in store now. i’m always attracted to the ease of steven’s style and the soft neutral palette with a pop of color and pattern. it’s simple and wearable with a great fit – you can’t go wrong!
we received three new styles from rachel comey’s fall collection. the dalhia candela dress in a bold bright green floral print, and the halstead blouse in a black print with a bright yellow and fuscia flower- both 100% silk and made in manhattan. the bambino coat is in a soft wool tweed that drapes beautifully.
current elliott‘s studio jacket is the best fitted motorcycle jacket for fall! the under jacket is wool and the outer is black denim. i loved pairing it with rachel comey’s decibel dress and mars bootie to add a touch of toughness. it has a great fit and is warm enough for year round wear in san franicsco. it’s made in the u.s.
