The Golden Ratio

The Golden Ratio – also called the Golden Mean – is a 1:3 to 2:3 ratio that appears in nature and is found to be the most aesthetically pleasing division of space. It has applications in mathematics, architecture, art and fashion where it is often referred to as "the rule of thirds." In fashion, most figures are more appealing to the observing eye if visually divided into thirds. When dressing in a 1:1 ratio (halves), the result can look boxy and unflattering. Using a 1:2 or 2:1 ratio... Full Post >

Setting Your Table for Fall

At Dovecote, we strive for style in all areas. From apparel to dog accessories and everything in between, a stylish life is a happy life. Labor Day is behind us and with that, it's time to put away the rosé and dive into a spiced red wine sangria. Bright lemons and limes and fuchsias are turning to charcoals and burgundies and soft doeskin color palettes. Goodbye to linen, hello to cashmere. And hello to fun fall parties! We love to decorate with fall in mind. We have several tabletop... Full Post >

These are comfortable, breathable, and can double as pajamas if you just... Full Post >
