Make It Your Own Monday

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

Item of the Month: SKIF Shirts

Each SKIF sweater is handmade in the USA, either in St. Louis Missouri or Edison, New Jersey. Though they don’t provide sizes, the tension and combinations of the yarn that’s used for each piece dictates the fit. The sweaters are beautiful and season-less, light enough to wear during the spring and substantial enough to layer for fall and winter. They only get better looking and more comfortable with wear, settling perfectly onto the body. The colors are stunning and the fabrics have a great, organic feel. The perfect topper to any outfit. You’ll get nothing but compliments when you’re wearing SKIF!

For 40-somethings
Stylist: Marta

Straight from a 60′s film starting Audrey Hepburn, this look takes an earthy SKIF cardigan out for a glam spin. We love all the color here, from the Equestrian pant in Julius all the way to the top with the flash of red in the sunglasses from Fetch Eyewear and blue printed headscarf from Suzi Roher. Touches of rose gold, paprika and siena are elevated next to the azure knit sweater. Vroom vroom.

Q&A with Alicia Betts

We were excited to chat with Alicia Betts, our lovely representative for SKIF, before her trunk show at Dovecote on Saturday, February 7th and Sunday, February 8th. Here is what she shared with us about SKIF's collection this season! What has been your inspiration this season? There are alot of bold vivid brights in the collection this year. I believe a lover of SKIF is a woman of great style and confidence and wants to "stand out" of the crowd. She carries herself well and does not... Full Post >

International Home Builders Show

The International home builder’s show was HUGE this year – a good sign for the economic rebound!  The most common theme revolved around 3 words – kitchens and baths.  Quartz is in, stainless steel appliances are still in and faucets/fixtures come in at least 8 different finishes.  Grey is the color of choice and lighting options are incredible.  Energy efficiency still remains a big player and overall low maintenance “green” products are a must.  After 20+ miles of walking, Paige...

Kara & John-Marcus

Kara and John-Marcus tied the knot on October 4, 2014. These newlyweds said their "I dos" under the Willow Oaks, and danced the night away in the Fearrington Barn. 1. How did you and your partner meet? It's actually a funny story. We met at a party in Atlanta...twice. I met John-Marcus shortly after I graduated from college and moved from Massachusetts. During our conversation at this party, he promised to help me find a great apartment, so he asked for my email address and sent me a... Full Post >
