Tale of the Turban…





Elie-Tahari-Lookbook---Resort-2012-107994(images via)

I’ve never been one to shy away from an accessory. Hats, belts, jewelry, you name it and I’m game to try it. I especially love winter accessories, and have a rather unnecessary amount of beanies, scarves and hats considering I live in a place that doesn’t get a typical winter. One accessory I happen to love is the turban. The styling possibilities are pretty limitless, and they’re a nice variation from your typical winter fedora or beanie. My winter hat collection includes a tan turban I purchased a few years ago from ASOS, and I just added another turban in one of the most gorgeous shades of deep blue that I’ve ever seen.

We’re expecting a few cooler days this week, and I’m hoping to finally get take my newest accessory out for a spin. I love looking for outfit inspiration online, and while I was searching for turban inspiration, I ran across an image from an Elie Tahari lookbook a few seasons ago. It was so gorgeous that I had to immediately go and investigate the entire collection. Turns out Elie Tahari’s Resort 2012 lookbook was full of chic turban looks. I’ll probably be a bit more casual with my turban look, but these shots are definitely pinned as fashion inspo. How do you guys feel about turbans – yay or nay? P.S. – My last turban look can be seen here!


Shop Talk: I survived Black Friday

e86e0382634349bba786cb6429cb4d72I finally think I’m almost fully recovered after Black Friday. It’s no secret that the day of doorbuster sales is the biggest shopping day of the year, and preludes the busy holiday shopping that arrives the following month. By the store being a smaller local boutique, I wasn’t really expecting significant traffic – I just figured everyone would be at the mall grabbing up all the deals from the more popular chain stores. However, I was pleasantly surprised. We actually had a pretty good Friday and Saturday, and ended the month with more sales than we’ve had in months. It’s been such a long hard road, but this was definitely an entrepreneurial bright spot. More highlights of our Black Friday included launching the website! It’s been almost a year long project, but I’m so excited that our customers finally get to shop online!

There’s hardly any time to sit back, relax, and enjoy the fruits of my labor though. Christmas is in 20, eek 20 days!, and there’s so much to be done as we prep for December sales, and get ready for next year. This week has been abnormally slow (maybe everyone is all shopped out from last weekend?) which just further exacerbates the motto that my work is never done. Time to kick it into overdrive and end the year on a positive note! I’d also love for you guys to check out the website! Check it out here and let me know what you think! Happy Friday everyone!

Fall Outfit Round-Up

fall-outfit-roundupIt’s been awhile since I’ve done any sort of a round up post on the blog, but I thought it would be fun to take a look back on some of my favorite outfits from this fall. It’s pretty evident that the weather has been all over the pace (no surprise there) here, judging from the sequin crop top, dresses, and coats I’ve worn all within a matter of weeks! While the weather had definitely been fickle, I love the challenge of essentially making most of my wardrobe work for any season. Looking forward to winter and all of the outfit possibilities that Jack Frost will bring!
