Fur? Fabulous!

Did you know we sell fur coats? We’ve got several amazing pieces in right now, perfect for the chilly winter we’re supposed to be in for this winter!



Leopard Fur Coat- Zuki Furs sz 10 $1500 (on sale this week from $2000!)

This isn’t your grandmother’s fur coat, ladies. Keep cozy in style with a sassy short leopard print fur. Kallie feels oh so chic pairing it with dark denim and cat eye sunglasses!




Reversible White Mink Fur Coat- sz M/L $800

Brooke keeps it classic in a white mink number. This coat has a white leather lining and is completely reversible! The best part? There are pockets on both sides!



Long Mink Coat w/ Belt- sz 4 $1125 (on sale from $1500!)

Anna channels her inner Margot Tennenbaum with a luxurious and super warm full length mink coat. This classic coat will never go out of style, and is well worth the price tag.


Patchwork Rabbit Fur Vest- sz XS/S $80

Add some warmth to your favorite winter ensemble with a funky rabbit fur vest. Hop on over and snatch this piece up before it’s gone!



Crocheted Fox Fur Hood- $98

Keep your ears warm and stylish with a luxurious fox fur hood and scarf. Lightweight and cozy, it will go perfectly with that new winter coat you just bought 🙂


Crocheted Brown Mink Hood- $120

We think you’ll just love this mink hood, too. And just like the fox one above, you can leave the pieces long or wrap them up into a scarf.

Remember, we do layaway (just half down and pay the rest in 30 days)! Come on in and see all of these fabulous items yourself – trust us, it’s worth it!

Belt it!

One of our favorite ways to complete an outfit is by adding a belt. Some women are afraid to really accessorize with belts because they aren’t sure how to wear them, so we’ve come up with some fun and interesting ways to add them to any outfit!


Dress- Yoana Baraschi sz S/M $17

Turtleneck- M/L $36

Scarf- $12

Smaller Bead Necklace- $15

Larger Bead Necklace- $20

Tired of your plain old black belt? Try using a silk scarf as a belt! The scarf cinches in the waist of a shift dress to give you a great shape. Just knot it off to the side (almost like you would tie a men’s tie!)  and let the ends hang down.

Skinny Jeans- True Religion sz 23 $80

Sweater- H&M sz S $20

Scarf- Tolani $20

Necklace- $12

Belt- Streets Ahead $40

Bored with ways to wear your favorite pashmina scarf? Trying belting it! This works with a plain top and jeans, or a plain knit dress too.

Blazer- Elizabeth & James sz 6 $30

Dress- Silence & Noise sz 6 $24

Agate Necklace- Jay King $68

Patent Belt- sz M $12

A great way to give a longer blazer some shape is by cinching a skinny belt over it at your natural waist. Skinny belts are especially great if you are petite or curvy.

Gray Cowl Top- BCBG sz M/L $36

Blue Sweater- Neiman Marcus Cashmere sz M/L $36

Cardigan Sweater- Theory sz M $14

Skirt- W/D NY sz S/M $16

Necklace- $20

Braided Belt- $3

Knot a braided belt instead of buckling it the old-fashioned way for a unique look that adds interest. Don’t be afraid to put a belt over several thin layers, or an open sweater. Again, the belt keeps you from looking shapeless, and creates a nice proportionate look!

We’ve got loads of great belts in stock right now (many of which are on sale- did we mention we are marking down new sale items today since we will be closed for Thanksgiving tomorrow?!) so come on in and stock up!

Happy Turkey Day!
