The Gift of Style

What do you get for the woman who has everything?

A gift from Dovecote Style, of course!

For the fashionista in your life, we have got just the thing. A cashmere coat that regulates your temperature and acts as both your sweater and your coat? Check! And available in several colors! The perfect investment piece from Kinross, especially for our fairly mild North Carolina winters.

The finest cashmere scarves from Kas, hand loomed and hand dyed in Nepal, in the most beautiful colors we’ve ever seen? Check! And they won’t pill! You have to feel these to believe they even exist. Hands down, the softest garment in the entire store. Just dreamy.

A handbag that takes you from a coffee date to a plane ride, in rich leather and delightful colorations? Check! Joanna Maxham’s “Castaway” is the perfect piece. Its unique ability to transform from a sleek structured bag to one that doubles as a fashionable carry-on is unparalleled. We love the European leather, atelier-level craftsmanship and incredibly detailed hardware.

Let one of the members of our style team help you find that perfect present for your special style diva!

These are the things which would truly make us smile (were we to be gifted with one)! At the top of our list, unsurprisingly, were a number of tools we have all coveted. 1.

Mixing textures is an easy way to take a simple look into the land of adventurous fashion. We love the fun proportions in this outfit, with an ultra suede gaucho pant from Equestrian Designs, Ronen Chen's wool cape and crocodile flats. Cassie threw on a chunky necklace from Dominique Denaive to add... Full Post >
