Hat's On For Fall!

Greetings Lovelies!

To follow up on our fall 2016 trends blog, we've decided to build off of the trends with another post about a mandatory fall accessory, hats! We've gathered some tips from our stylists and have come up with a comprehensive list of why hats are a mandatory fashion accessory!


1. No one will ever know you’re having a bad hair day.
You can still look totally fabulous without having to style your hair whether your roots are grown out, your bangs are too short or anywhere in between.

2. It takes no effort.
Pair the hat with a pair of sunglasses and you not only avoid doing your hair, but your makeup as well. Win win, right?

3. You feel like a total fashion guru.
For some reason you just feel completely put together -- like you could conquer the world. The only thing that would make it better is a glass of champagne!


4.They keep your head warm!
Seriously, though. In the winter months it can get frigid. Basically, if you ever find yourself second guessing wearing the hat, WEAR IT.

 5. They are just totally and 100% fabulous.
Even ask our stylists!

a comprehensive guide to spring '16

hello dolls!

With the New Year comes a new take, a fresh start, and a recharge to your coveted wardrobe. If you haven't already give your closet a double-take and consider a bit of a cleanse to clear your head and the clutter of pieces that you've worn to shreds or haven't worn at all [last 6 months]. Make way for the excitement of spring style that's going to encompass a whole lot of unique and reinvented trends that will have you doing cartwheels!

We've scoured the markets, streetstyle blogs, and all of our favorite fashion resources to hone in on what the focus of this spring season will bring. An 'ode to the Victorian-era and the ever-present and always updated retro-70s will be sending some serious vibes in the form of flouncy dresses, suede fabrications, and over-accentuated structures including defined pleats and bell of the ball style sleeves. Reconstructed white blouses and light denim are bringing their A-game [per usual] and the cross-front "x" will be making a splash across the board with several of the top designers.

As always, we're eager to assist you in revamping your upcoming season's style files. So scroll thru below to see some shots of trends, silouhettes, colors [alert! holographic lives on] and textures you'll be seeing a whole lot more of in the weeks to come!

fall favorites.

Sadly in Florida many of us still feel like we're waiting for the arrival of fall, but humidity and heat still doesn't seem to blunder our fashion game.  As the summer heat wave dragged well into October and then November... fall trends still seemed to find their way into the scene. Some of our most coveted trends include fringe anything - you name it - it goes! Others at the top of the include camel hues, trench coats worn open or as a dress, denim on denim, flares, long layering necklaces, suede, denim details, and crazy shades of grey.

The great thing about living in the south is many of our summer pieces transition well into the fall just by adding the "layering effect".  Tying a denim button up at the waist of a slouchy maxi dress paired with sneakers and a light scarf is a casual yet chic look for days we are still swimming in high 80s.  What are your favorite fall trends?

how to summer in AB.

When the summer months roll around and tourists start trickling in we're often asked an assortment of questions regarding fun and fare around our small [but, pretty fabulous] beach town.  We are quick to spout off our favorite restaurants, things to do, or places to shop.  Guiding our out-of-towners gets us a bit giddy as we know they're about to have that memorable and lasting experience making it one that leaves them wanting to visit our town again! So we figured why keep this secret to share with just the traveling entourage and not share it with the locals we love?!  So here's our list of our favorites in this lovely gem of a town, we call home!
