At Dovecote

Dovecote is a lifestyle boutique offering an ever-changing selection of chic apparel for both men and women,  accessories, home décor and gifts for every occasion.

Leather Tunic Dress

Yes, you read that right. A leather dress. We are just obsessed with this item from Marc A Dolci! And judging from how quickly these pop in and out of the shop, so are our fashionable clients! This dress looks great on so many women. It is laser cut to perfection in a simple shape, which balances the edginess of the leather with a classic fit. It's surprisingly versatile and effortlessly cool. We love styling it with our favorite mushroom-colored booties from French Sole, but the... Full Post >

Transformation Tuesday

We've switched it up a bit here at Dovecote Style for this edition of Transformation Tuesday. We wanted to show the versatility of the apparel we offer, and we thought what better way than to put our clothes on an expecting mother. And is she expecting! We had to be quick with this makeover because this little one is ready to arrive as soon as next week! We love the before look, but we wanted to add just a bit more color. As beautiful as pregnancy is, we didn't want to draw too much... Full Post >

Q&A with Designer Lorain Croft

We were thrilled to talk with Lorain Croft, the designer for Lorain Croft. She will be here for a trunk show at Dovecote this weekend, Saturday, October 18th & Sunday, October 19th. Here's what she told us about her personal style and this incredible collection. What has been your inspiration this season? Luxurious fabrics, rich in color and texture - I need to connect with how the design will feel on the body, how it will affect the mood of the wearer.  What is your favorite piece... Full Post >

Layering Tips for Fall

At the first hint of change in the air, I am always ready to update up my wardrobe with a pop of something fresh and new for the upcoming season. This season, I am all about gray foundation pieces, luxurious cashmere in luscious colors as toppings, and a spot of leopard which, in my opinion, is always in style but never more than this season! See what's in store and drop by to fill out your fall wardrobe! Full Post >

Transformation Tuesday

Inspired by our most recent Kinross trunk show and the continuing delightful fall weather, we've fully embraced cashmere for today and every day. Today we have a cute fall look for a coffee or lunch date. We've taken our very favorite Wilt top, a beautifully draped navy blouse and layered it with a fabulous camel Kinross cashmere jacket (say that five times fast!) We like to play with proportions and see what works and in this case, a pant with a bit of flare works wonderfully with the... Full Post >

Capes

No, this is not a post about superheroes, but you will definitely feel super stylish as soon as you throw on one of our gorgeous capes! Capes are a huge trend this Fall, and thank goodness, because they are fabulous. You'll find a variety of beautiful colors, fabric weights, sizes and price points at Dovecote Style. Keep our lovely ponchos in mind, too! They make fantastic layering piece as the seasons change. So, how do you choose between capes? Some of our absolute favorites are... Full Post >

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... Full Post >

Q&A with Cee & Ana from ANARKH Designs

We were happy to have the chance to talk to Cee & Ana, the lovely designers with ANARKH Designs, about their inspiration and style tips for the fall collection. This amazing trunk show is here for five full days at Dovecote beginning Wednesday, October 1st, through Sunday, October 5th. What has been your inspiration this season? The Fall-Winter 2014 collections were inspired by the short stories and poetry of Edgar Allan Poe and the surrealistic etchings of Gustav Dore. What is your... 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. For some, that means finding a special gift for a friend and for others, it's the possibility of transformation. Either way, we have a shop full of beautiful things to help with all your endeavors, a team of enthusiastic ladies to help and lots of fun to be had along the way! Today we took that idea of fun and ran with... Full Post >

Q&A with Emanuel Fresko of Crea Concept

We sat down with Emanuel Fresko, who will be representing Crea Concept at their trunk show at Dovecote this Saturday, September 27th and Sunday, September 28th, to tell us a little about Aisha Gunel, the Turkish designer for this fabulous collection. What has been the inspiration this season? While Italy gave her [Aisha] inspiration on the elegant classics, France aided her in creativity and playfulness , if you mix those two influences to the middle eastern one in which she lives and...
