Dovecote Style: DEFINED

Generally speaking, women will favor one style category — Classic, Bohemian, Chic or Avant Garde. Classic style is defined by timelessness, simplicity and impeccable taste, with lots of neutrals while the bohemian (or boho) style employs color and an organic vintage sensibility. Chic is the perfect example of elegance and is embodied by those fashionable women who are aware of trends without necessarily following them. The avant garde fashionista never backs away from a risk. They are the trendsetters; they’re daring, progressive and guaranteed to turn heads.

Not quite sure which category you exemplify, or what chic may look like? Each week Dovecote’s stylists will take a turn in creating a look that illustrates each style while throwing her own twist on the ensemble. Stay tuned for the weekly fun!

Q&A with JoAnn Doxakis

We were excited to catch up with JoAnn Doxakis, for ZoWee, before her trunk show at Dovecote on Friday, August 21st and Saturday, August 22nd. Here is what she shared with us about her exquisite collection! What has been your inspiration this season? Texture. The organic feel of outdoors inspires me, so many colors and textures for all seasons. The culture of vacation spots I’ve visited is truly an inspiration, and places I haven't yet visited, only in photos is still inspiring to me.... Full Post >

Daniella Lehavi Boots

Our love for fall is fairly evident here at Dovecote. Cashmere sweaters, streamlined leggings, cozy scarves, lots of layers . . . fall fashion is definitely our favorite. Pairing these pieces with boots is only natural! Ankle boots with a knit dress and opaque tights is a look we love. A knee-high boot with skinny pants and an oversized sweater? Autumnal perfection! Daniella Lehavi's boots come to us from Israel. They are handmade with the highest quality leather. We've loved her... Full Post >

Sara & Scott

Sara and Scott tied the knot on April 25, 2015. These newlyweds said their "I dos" at the Garden Terrace, and danced the night away in the Fearrington Barn. Tell us about the engagement? Our engagement took us on a journey in logistics, which in turn required two attempts for Scott to get to “pop the question.” On the first attempt, Scott had the plan and pieces all in place. However, the universe had its own agenda in mind that evening. Essentially, all Scott needed was for their... Full Post >
