Make It Your Own Monday

Welcome back to Dovecote Style’s blog series: Make It Your Own Monday!

Item of the Month: Magaschoni Cashmere Mesh Cardigan

It’s no secret we love our Magaschoni cashmere, but our love deepened when we ordered from the Spring 2015 collection–we have gorgeous silk shells, feather light cashmere sweaters and this stunning mesh cardigan. Made from 100% cashmere, this cardigan is reminiscent of fishnet and perfectly thin for layering over and under for the end of winter (it IS coming) and those early Spring days. This is an essential.

For 30-somethings
Stylist: Emma

As 30-something women come into their own personal style, there’s always a bit of a learning curve. If she stocks her wardrobe with high-quality basics, the curve becomes far less steep and her personal style instantly gains an innate chicness. A silk top here, a slim pant there, some fun accessories added to the mix, and ensembles magically come together — just like this one. We love the cream shell with the indigo mesh cardigan, both from Magaschoni. The cool grey Keesha pant from Equestrian Designs is best for those with long, slim legs and we love the way it echoes the grey in the headscarf. Of course we added our favorite roll-top leather clutch. Throw on a couple strands of crystals in shades of grey and blush pink from Bittersweet Designs and call it a day: personal style is made easy thanks to classic pieces found at Dovecote Style.

Maria & Dave

Maria and Dave tied the knot on November 15, 2014. These newlyweds said their "I dos" at the Garden Terrace, and danced the night away in the Fearrington Barn. How did you and your partner meet? Dave and I met in 2011, when we were both working for the same big law firm in New York City. Dave shared an office with a dear friend of mine. I would visit her periodically, and for the first 3 months of those visits, I completely ignored Dave. With time, though started to realize how charming... Full Post >

John Westmoreland is the talented Chatham County artist who is playing jazz and classical music at The Granary on Monday & Tuesday evenings. We are excited to share a little more about Westmoreland and his love of music! What prompted your love of music?

Healthy Antioxidants Regiment

If you’re like most people, you want smooth, healthy skin, but maybe you don’t want to wade through hundreds of chemically laden products to get results. That’s where antioxidants can help! Incorporating the right antioxidants into your diet and skin care routine can have a positive effect on your skin. Antioxidants are nutrients (vitamins and minerals) and enzymes (proteins inside your body) that protect your skin by limiting the production of free radicals, which can damage skin... Full Post >
