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 50-somethings
Stylist: Jeanne

We’ve been flooded at the shop with new collections for our new space that is now finished! 800 square feet of brand new shopping experiences await you here at Dovecote, including these very cool shorts and linen tank from Shosh New York. We’ve layered the look with our favorite mesh cardi in Kaki, a petal necklace from Ann Lightfoot and a hand-printed scarf from Suzi Roher. Top the look with a straw Tula hat to protect from the sun and to keep you cool with these rising temperatures, and you’re perfectly set. Be sure to take a look at the new space and renovated store. We’re feeling refreshed and excited for Spring and our stylists can’t wait to show you how to make any look your own!

We met nine years ago through mutual friends. Two of our best friends (Andrew’s best man) are brother and sister and we met at their house. After years of hanging out in the same close circle of friends, we began spending a lot more time together during the summer of 2010. When Alex left for... Full Post >

Ready Your Garden (and Yourself) for Spring!

Winter's not quite a distant memory yet, but each arriving songbird reminds us of the spring gardening work to be done. While it's hard to resist the temptation to get out and start digging and planting on the first warm weekend, there's still lots to do to in the weeks ahead when the ground is too soggy to work. First on our list here at Fearrington is a check to see that all of our tools and equipment are ready for the tasks ahead. After sharpening blades on sécateurs, cleaning forks and... Full Post >

Q&A with Blair Stanley

We were excited to catch up with designer Blair Stanley before this weekend's trunk show at Dovecote on Friday, March 13th and Saturday, March 14th. Check out the great thoughts he shared with us about this season's collection! What three words best describe your line? Classic with a twist, sophisticated and distinctive. What has been your inspiration this season? My inspiration is always textile driven. I believe the most beautiful styles derive from timeless fabrics with an... Full Post >
