Lela Rose Pre-Fall 2013

Heightening our Lela Rose obsession is the pre-fall 2013 collection.  We loved viewing these images in rich mustard hues, cobalt blues, and charcoals - in the most beautiful and artistically inspired prints. There’s a gorgeous mix of color play that comprises the unique array of graphics in this collection.

Lela Rose pre-fall 2013 was inspired by the Abstract expressionist artist Clyfford Still.  His use of jagged edges and large expanses of color inspired many of the prints and fabrics, as well as the dripped paint embroideries.  We can’t wait to shop these styles in our boutique.

Christmas With Avant Garden

Christmas is looking even brighter this year with Avant Garden!  We loved the array of fresh mixed flowers you can always find walking right into the store.  It’s just like an outdoor flower market.  On our last visit, there were an array of fresh peonies from Chile. And, you can’t go wrong with the ornamented topiaries and decadent holiday wreaths filled with some of the most beautiful metallic baubles imaginable.
