Transformation Tuesday

It’s that time again — time sure does fly when you’re having fun!

Here at Dovecote Style, we want you to feel better walking out of our store than you did walking in. For some, that means finding a special gift for a friend and for others, it’s the possibility of transformation. Either way, we have a shop full of beautiful things to help with all your endeavors, a team of enthusiastic ladies to help and lots of fun to be had along the way!

Today we took that idea of fun and ran with it. The idea behind this transformation was a French (we love Paris) and flirty look for the woman headed out for cocktails on a cool September evening. This meant a plain white tee swapped for a graphic layering shirt from AMB, topped with a soft blush scarf from Suzi Roher and a sparkly headband. Rather than a dark mini, we have a textured Elemente Clemente skirt in a very hip midi length that flatters all shapes. We’ve paired that with mushroom colored booties, a unique belt and our very favorite statement stingray clutch from Vivo.

All of it adds up to a fresh and funky outfit that’s perfect for a fall outing with the girls. Prepare to turn some heads!

Q&A with Emanuel Fresko of Crea Concept

We sat down with Emanuel Fresko, who will be representing Crea Concept at their trunk show at Dovecote this Saturday, September 27th and Sunday, September 28th, to tell us a little about Aisha Gunel, the Turkish designer for this fabulous collection. What has been the inspiration this season? While Italy gave her [Aisha] inspiration on the elegant classics, France aided her in creativity and playfulness , if you mix those two influences to the middle eastern one in which she lives and...

Diane & Dina

Diane and Dina tied the knot on April 19, 2014. They said their, "I dos" under the Willow Oaks and danced the night away in the Fearrington Barn! How did you and Dina meet? We met starting new jobs on December 31, 1988 in Winston-Salem at Wachovia Bank. We were being processed in HR and Dina asked Diane if she was nervous starting a new job. We were both new to Winston-Salem and did not know anyone in town. After multiple attempts, Dina was finally able to persuade Diane to come over... Full Post >

Being Creative with Fullsteam

Food, beer, wine, restaurants, service, music, painting, sculpting -- what do all of these have in common? Creativity and imagination! Some are individualistic expressions and some are joint, or better, collaborative expressions. The teamwork and creativity that goes into restaurants is something that when working well, should go unnoticed, it should feel natural. In our second year collaborating with Sean Lilly Wilson and Fullsteam Brewery I feel that natural mutual creative energy in... Full Post >
