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.

Style Defined: CHIC

This look was styled by Jeanne. It seems almost criminal to not have our first chic look for this blog be all black. Sleek, streamlined, but also full of texture and the most fashionable details, we’ve put together quite the outfit. Love the lattice work on the sleeves of the cashmere sweater from Kinross and the drapey material of the Equestrian Carla pant. Jeanne’s touch is evident in the delicate gold necklace; it’s the perfect accessory. We’ve put it together with a... Full Post >

Here is what she shared with us about her beautiful collection this season! What has been your inspiration this season? The warm rich colors when the seasons change.

Style Defined: CLASSIC

This look was styled by Emma. While building a classic wardrobe, the key is to fill your closet with high quality basic pieces. In this classic look we’re showing a great slim cut pant in a beautiful fall color (Milo from Equestrian Designs in Whiskey) paired with a crisp white shirt, the Sonoma from P. Taylor, and a cropped knit sweater from Kinross Cashmere. This combination is a beautiful base for all sorts of fantastic accessories. You could pair it with a tartan scarf, a sleek... Full Post >

Back to School Style

Going back to school means one thing: fall. Okay, maybe two. . . fall and cashmere. The cashmere is flooding into the shop in shades ranging from creamy almond to vibrant mulberry. Now is your chance to snap up the double shaved wool and cashmere coat if you missed it last year; we sold out by August and have re-stocked accordingly. The perfect North Carolina cashmere coat, this piece from Kinross is ideal for our fluctuating weather as it acts as both a sweater and a coat. Easy to... Full Post >

Dovecote Style: DEFINED

Generally speaking, women will favor one style category — Classic, Bohemian, Chic or Avant Garde. Classic style is defined by timelessness, simplicity and impeccable taste, with lots of neutrals while the bohemian (or boho) style employs color and an organic vintage sensibility. Chic is the perfect example of elegance and is embodied by those fashionable women who are aware of trends without necessarily following them. The avant garde fashionista never backs away from a risk. They are the... Full Post >

Q&A with JoAnn Doxakis

We were excited to catch up with JoAnn Doxakis, for ZoWee, before her trunk show at Dovecote on Friday, August 21st and Saturday, August 22nd. Here is what she shared with us about her exquisite collection! What has been your inspiration this season? Texture. The organic feel of outdoors inspires me, so many colors and textures for all seasons. The culture of vacation spots I’ve visited is truly an inspiration, and places I haven't yet visited, only in photos is still inspiring to me.... Full Post >

Daniella Lehavi Boots

Our love for fall is fairly evident here at Dovecote. Cashmere sweaters, streamlined leggings, cozy scarves, lots of layers . . . fall fashion is definitely our favorite. Pairing these pieces with boots is only natural! Ankle boots with a knit dress and opaque tights is a look we love. A knee-high boot with skinny pants and an oversized sweater? Autumnal perfection! Daniella Lehavi's boots come to us from Israel. They are handmade with the highest quality leather. We've loved her... Full Post >

How I Style It

Here at Dovecote, we love to build a look. It's like a puzzle - challenging, but fun and so satisfying once we've completed it. Each member of our style team builds different looks, dependent on the client and the stylist's own personal outlook on fashion. Featured here is a look from our newest Dovecote Stylist Cassie. She's taken a simple washable silk top from Go Silk and paired it with the Milo pant from Equestrian Designs in Cornbread. We love the navy and yellow together, so chic!... Full Post >

Poolside Style

Summer is winding down and it's your last chance to swim in style. For the ultimate in poolside (or beachside) chic, look no further than Dovecote Style and our beautiful pareos from Matta. Made in India from 100% percent cotton and contained in a cute matching bag, these bright wraps are perfect to wrap around your suit before, during and after pool times. Paired with a wrinkled linen tunic from CP Shades and a beachy straw basket, you’ll always be perfectly styled to beat the heat! Full Post >

We were excited to catch up with Suzi Roher, designer for Suzi Roher, before her trunk show at Dovecote on Saturday, August 8th and Sunday, August 9th. Here is what she shared with us about her exquisite collection! What three words best describe your line? Fashionable, gorgeous, artsy, quality. Oops, that's four, but I could not leave out quality! What has been your inspiration this season? The 'waist' has been my inspiration this season. Silhouettes have bigger shoulders and... Full Post >
