Transformation Tuesday

Have we got something in store for you on this beautiful Tuesday…double the transformation!

We’ve been particularly inspired this week, after a five day trunk show with Anarkh Designs, loads of new items coming through the shop and this delightful Fall weather reminding us just how beautiful the season can be.

Look #1! Today we’ve taken a relatively nondescript outfit of gray and black (though, admittedly, we are mildly obsessed with her scarf) and taken the classic stylish equestrian route. Remember that girl you knew in elementary school who wore her hair in a perfect little chignon and alternated between riding lessons and ballet after school?

Well, she’s all grown up. And now she’s edgy!

We’ve taken a navy asymmetrical hemmed Magaschoni cashmere sweater and paired it with our sumptuous leather Santiago boots from the Argentinian company Trooyu. We then added this very cool Sarah Cavender Metalworks necklace, such a statement piece. Finally we threw cashmere on top of cashmere with a smart little jacket from Kinross. Try it on for yourself this coming weekend at our Kinross trunk show. It is a can’t-miss event.

Check out that graduated flat link necklace from Zenzii!

Look #2 (at left)! For double trouble, we’ve got another great look from Anarkh.  An outfit to wear for date night with just the right balance of sexiness and on-trend style. We’ve paired their Leri leather pant with the Buzi sweater, a really fabulous wool blend piece with just enough leather to add edge. We racked our brains for accessories and the only sensible thing seemed to be Shagreen cuffs, and lots of them so we layered ‘em up and finished it with a Shagreen clutch to match. The addition of a classically-styled delicate ring balanced everything out. Just perfect!

Swing by the store to shop your ideal balance of classic and edgy; we’ve got tons of options for you!

Falling for Autumn Flowers

Fearrington's incredibly talented floral designer Mary Stevens shared a few ideas about how to incorporate seasonal flowers into a beautiful fall wedding! "I think that fall weddings can be lush and romantic – without having to be kitschy or overly themed. Brides are not limited to pumpkins filled with orange and red flowers. Softer, more romantic, antique tones work beautifully for autumn events. Think of sunset hues. Seasonal foliage, softer greens, blush, peach, butter yellow, gold -... Full Post >

Spiced Apple is Back!

As the air turns cool and the autumn leaves start to change with their majestic colors, we turn our thoughts to all things fall! Bountiful harvests of beautiful fall delights come to mind -- bushels of apples, crisp and juicy, brown sugar, and sweet cinnamon create a wonderful recipe for luxurious Spiced Apple spa treatments. We are excited to bring back the Spiced Apple spa treatments at The Spa at Fearrington. With autumn in mind, now is the time to prepare your skin and nails for the next... Full Post >

Transformation Tuesday

It's that time again -- time sure does fly when you're having fun! Here at Dovecote Style, we want you to feel better walking out of our store than you did walking in.
