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.

We hope you're as excited as we are. Today, we've taken a simple blue top with black pants and created the perfect casual ensemble for Fall. CP Shades has gorgeous cotton flannel... Full Post >

Transformation Tuesday

We've felt the chill in the air these past few mornings, a sure sign of Fall arriving. For this week's installment of Transformation Tuesday, we've embraced the new season wholeheartedly!

The line is A'Nue Ligne and features fabulous v-neck tees, reversible tunics and beautiful leggings -- all perfect for layering with other designer pieces or with each other for a streamlined look. We carry the line in black,... Full Post >

The Statement Bag

There's no better time than the changing of the seasons to stop and reflect on your wardrobe. We're all starting to put away the light tees and tanks and stock up on sweaters and jackets. The changing of the seasons is lovely, but for the money, there's no better investment than a statement bag to take us through fall, winter and beyond. Some of our favorites here in the shop include a sumptuous leather boho bag in color-blocked cream and brown, totes and clutches with shagreen... Full Post >

Cashmere

Now personally, I'm not entirely convinced that this blog needs anything more than the title. But if you insist... At Dovecote, we are receiving loads of cashmere from Magaschoni in New York. It's soft, it's classic, it's versatile. Magaschoni prides itself on its love for the classics while being cognizant of trends. This is cashmere that will last for years as long as you take good care of and it comes in beautiful, flattering cuts for every woman. Classic crew neck? We've got... Full Post >
