The Art of Layering

Now is the time of year when layering becomes extra important, but there’s definitely an art to it. If you do it wrong, it looks bulky and uncomfortable but when you do it right, it looks chic and warm.

It’s always great to layer a simple tank under anything you wear. We love the thin ones from AMB as well as Judy P’s polished silhouettes. A silk tee from TY-LR also gets the job done. On top of that, a P. Taylor top works well, to give structure and tailoring to the look. The perfect topper is, of course, cashmere and in this instance, the cocoon from Magaschoni is a wonderful go-to piece. It’s flattering, super warm and incredibly versatile, looking just as great layered casually or thrown on over a cocktail dress.

As far as bottoms go, we always love a ponte legging from Equestrian. The weight is perfect for winter weather and the shape is ideal for boots (the perfect winter shoe choice)! We also have plenty of stock of our favorite hosiery line, item M6, which uses compression technology to keep you energized and looking sleek. We love these tights with a pencil skirt and the aforementioned top part of the ensemble. So cute!

Swing by the shop anytime to let our stylists show you how to layer and still look elegant!

Style Defined: CLASSIC

This look was styled by Cassie. Sometimes, simplicity is key. With this look, we start with a simple base: black cashmere turtleneck from Kinross, simple leggings from Equestrian Designs, suede kitten heel from Bettye Muller. But there’s a twist! The turtleneck is topped with a beautiful charcoal and pink scarf, the leggings have the faintest foil design printed on them, the suede heel is adorned with a bow and we’ve finished the look with hand beaded Miguel Ases earrings. It’s... Full Post >

New Year, New Wines by the Glass

We are excited to share changes to our wines by-the-glass offerings in 2016! Starting this month, our by-the-glass section of the wine list will focus on producers which either practice organic or biodynamic agriculture in their vineyards, or focus on wines made from grapes grown in vineyards that are cared for in these two techniques. As a green certified restaurant we aim to continually increase what we can do to benefit the environment, making our choice for our wines a natural... Full Post >
