Transformation Tuesday

We’ve switched it up a bit here at Dovecote Style for this edition of Transformation Tuesday. We wanted to show the versatility of the apparel we offer, and we thought what better way than to put our clothes on an expecting mother. And is she expecting! We had to be quick with this makeover because this little one is ready to arrive as soon as next week!

We love the before look, but we wanted to add just a bit more color. As beautiful as pregnancy is, we didn’t want to draw too much attention to the baby bump, especially this close to her due date. But, we did want to draw attention to our model’s pretty blue eyes!

We’ve started with a classic base — a button down shirt from P. Taylor who wrote the book on the perfect button down shirt. This is the “Classic” style, meaning the shirt is oversized yet crisp, billowy yet linear. One of the best attributes of this shirt, it that it transitions from expecting to new mom!

We layered this classic top with our favorite Magaschoni cashmere ruffle cardigan, here in a beautiful heathered blue and accented that with a Matta scarf and to-die-for Miguel Ases earrings.

Flaunt that glow!

Q&A with Designer Lorain Croft

We were thrilled to talk with Lorain Croft, the designer for Lorain Croft. She will be here for a trunk show at Dovecote this weekend, Saturday, October 18th & Sunday, October 19th.

Layering Tips for Fall

At the first hint of change in the air, I am always ready to update up my wardrobe with a pop of something fresh and new for the upcoming season. This season, I am all about gray foundation pieces, luxurious cashmere in luscious colors as toppings, and a spot of leopard which, in my opinion, is always in style but never more than this season!

Transformation Tuesday

Inspired by our most recent Kinross trunk show and the continuing delightful fall weather, we've fully embraced cashmere for today and every day. Today we have a cute fall look for a coffee or lunch date. We've taken our very favorite Wilt top, a beautifully draped navy blouse and layered it with a fabulous camel Kinross cashmere jacket (say that five times fast!) We like to play with proportions and see what works and in this case, a pant with a bit of flare works wonderfully with the... Full Post >

Capes

No, this is not a post about superheroes, but you will definitely feel super stylish as soon as you throw on one of our gorgeous capes! Capes are a huge trend this Fall, and thank goodness, because they are fabulous. You'll find a variety of beautiful colors, fabric weights, sizes and price points at Dovecote Style. Keep our lovely ponchos in mind, too! They make fantastic layering piece as the seasons change. So, how do you choose between capes? Some of our absolute favorites are... Full Post >

Transformation Tuesday

Have we got something in store for you on this beautiful Tuesday...double the transformation! We've been particularly inspired this week, after a five day trunk show with Anarkh Designs, loads of new items coming through the shop and this delightful Fall weather reminding us just how beautiful the season can be. Look #1! Today we've taken a relatively nondescript outfit of gray and black (though, admittedly, we are mildly obsessed with her scarf) and taken the classic stylish equestrian... Full Post >
