The Seven Shoes Every Woman Should Own

We've covered handbags, so naturally it's time to cover everyone's favorite accessory: shoes. Though we'd like to say every pair of shoes we have in our closets is absolutely essential to our lives, it really boils down to seven pairs. Do you have these in your closet? Everyday heel: these are the ones that you can wear to work, to cocktails, and everywhere in between. They are comfortable, they are simple, and they are sturdy. Definitely a necessity. Statement heel: here... Full Post >

Best Outfit for International Travel

We have quite the jet-set clientele at Dovecote. We are asked on a daily basis "what's the best outfit for traveling?" and we have the answer for you! Well, we have a couple answers. Because who doesn't love options? If you are solely traveling (and, thus, crashing onto your bed as soon as you arrive at your destination), we recommend a simple cotton t-shirt from Wilt and ponte leggings from Magaschoni. These are comfortable, breathable, and can double as pajamas if you just... Full Post >

Wearable Art for Your Fall Wardrobe

From the moment you drape a Suzi Roher scarf around your neck, you are hooked! The luxurious soft fabric settles effortlessly on the body, making them nearly weightless and incredibly comfortable to wear. Every piece in her collection is a masterpiece with its own story, offering a captivating collage of images that speaks differently to every individual. Original art and photography dissolves into beautifully layered colors when worn. Folded and draped around your neck, only you know the... Full Post >

How to Create a Capsule Wardrobe

You may have heard the term “capsule wardrobe” before. In fact, it is gaining a great deal of attention in fashion circles of late. But what exactly is a capsule wardrobe and why should you consider creating one for yourself? The idea of a capsule wardrobe is not about limiting the number of clothing items in your closet. There is nothing wrong with owning beautiful clothes! Rather, the concept involves distilling your closet down to pieces you love to wear and learning how to... Full Post >

Q&A with Molly Hurley & Suzanne Pond

Six Essential Bags Every Woman Should Own

We found it very difficult to narrow our handbag selection to a measly six, but if pressed these are the perfect ones. Crossbody: a crossbody is key. It's not too big, not too small, and perfect for weekend errands such as scoping out the farmer's market and going for coffee (and shopping at your favorite local boutique)! Hands-free shopping is very enjoyable. We love ones from Ceri Hoover, a Nashville designer who does beautiful things with leather and... Full Post >

Q&A with Kimberly Abell

We were excited to speak with Kimberly Abell, for Equestrian Designs, before her trunk show at Dovecote on Saturday, August 20th and Sunday, August 21st. Here is what she shared with us about the collection! What was your inspiration this season? The colors of the Santa Inez Valley: the vineyards, the apple farms and horse farms. How does your brand develop from season to season? Equestrian offers basic silhouettes all year but we introduce new legs and lengths to the line every... Full Post >

Q&A with Cara May

We were thrilled to chat with designer Cara May before her trunk show at Dovecote on Saturday, August 20th and Sunday, August 21st. Here is what she shared with us about the collection! What three words best describe your line? Artisanal, understated, deconstructed. What has been your inspiration this season? I have been doing quite a bit of hiking in the Great Craggy Mountains this summer. There is something magical about the native grasses and evergreen shrubs up there that all... Full Post >

Ruffled for Fall

We're eagerly anticipating fall at Dovecote Style, with new arrivals and trunk shows coming up soon! We have in store the most adorable lightweight flannel shirt by Bell. A beautiful flattering cut and a small ruffle on the cuff gives this top a wonderful feminine touch. The shirts are available in a variety of combinations - red with teal, grey with navy, or black with grey -- all with elbow patches. A perfect transition piece for Fall. Pair with a great pair of jeans and... Full Post >
