pin-up

Our beautiful and talented guest photographer, Lydia See, agreed to take a turn in front of the camera in this lovely little party dress. It is a joy to wear with heels and can still go the distance when paired with tights, boots, cardigans, cropped jackets… By now, you know the drill.

tangerine

We love using a lot of color in our outfits these days. Incorporating opposing colors on the color wheel can really liven up a wintry wardrobe. One of our current favorite combinations is this saturated orange and beautiful blue/teal.  Try on a little color theory for yourself!

P.S. – If you love these oxfords we have them in black (on their way, should be in the shop any day now) and will be getting this beautiful cognac color in April. Put your name down for Frye’s new best seller and the shoe of the season. They are SERIOUSLY comfortable and a fantastic alternative to ballet flats for summer dresses.

the right balance

We love to layer prints but it can be a bit tricky to get it right. Our solution to finding the perfect balance is to start with a unifying color palette, make sure you have size variation in your prints, and then add a wide belt to tie it all together. If you still feel intimidated by this playful trend come in and let our stylish staff help get you started!

Thanks to Izzy’s for letting us take these photos in the coffee shop.

fool proof, how to

Want to pull a look together with nary a thought? Here’s a Minx equation that will never let you down. Grab a dress with a beautiful print, throw on a lovely little bit of knitwear, and cinch your waist with an interesting belt… the combination is fool proof.
