Q&A with Ann Lightfoot

We sat down with Ann Lightfoot before her trunk show at Dovecote on Saturday, November 12th and Sunday, November 13th. Here is what she shared with us about her collection! What was your inspiration this season? This season, like every season, my inspiration always comes from seeing and finding new materials in their rawest form. Seeing these stones, brought straight from the earth, is always a magical time for me in the creative process. I always start with the stones themselves... Full Post >

Layering for Fall

When temps start in the 50's and soar to the 80's, it's clear what season is officially upon us. Fall in North Carolina. It's also clear what your outfit of the day is going to have to be . . . Something with layers! We just received a shipment of great basic tops from Judy P. These are streamlined, easy to pop on, and come in several different styles from a classic Sabrina shell to a simple v-neck tee. We have them in cream, white, and black and they make a great base for any layered... Full Post >

We were excited to chat with Nadia Bevegni, designer of IT Felt Scarves, before her trunk show at Dovecote on Saturday, November 5th and Sunday, November 6th. Here is what she shared with us about her collection! What three words best describe your line? Three basic words for my newest line of felt art are with no doubt "handcrafted," "quality" and "transformation." Each piece is hand worked with the highest quality of materials, natural fibers that bond together under my hands'...

Cuffs & Collars

One of our very favorite finds this season were the cuffs and collars from Catherine Osti. These are chic, unique and perfectly Parisienne. Add to collarless sweaters, have them peek out of a simple top . . . these accessories are such an interesting alternative to necklaces and bracelets! We love that they give the illusion of layering without any of the bulk. We love the delicate details and the air of sophisticated style. Be sure to see our stylists at the store; we are always...
