Cloches for the Chilly Days

October 22, 2014

We love cloches. Not just for the demure ‘peeking out from behind the brim’ looks they provide, but for the lovely protection they offer from chills, drizzle and downright rain. Keep ears, lashes and glasses safely ensconced under one of these beauties.

Chilly October days…

October 15, 2014

The temperature is dropping and we have been stocking up on soft, cozy goodies to keep you warm. Here’s the newest from Emilime, a line of hats, gloves, and scarves that are hand knit in Peru using fine alpaca wool. We’re especially fond of the glittens — fingerless gloves with a pop top mitten. We’ve found that they make gifts, but don’t feel selfish if you decide to get yourself a pair as well!

How to: Wear A Beret

October 8, 2014

You’ve seen many a glamorous woman in a beret, as well as a few dapper men, but you’re not sure how to pull off the look yourself. Here is our guide to how to wear a beret.

All hats look best with a little fringe of hair framing them, so if you wear bangs, a’la Louise Brooks, start by placing the edge of the beret where your bangs start, on the top of your head. If you have long hair, or a swoop of a wave like Diane Kruger, below, position the edge just a bit lower on your forehead, and then pull the hat down over your ears.  Make sure to gather all of the extra fabric and slouch it toward the back of your head, rather than having a poof on the top. Voila! You are stunning.

 

Here are a few of our favorites to choose from:


Petra and Eugenia


Stella and Emile


Penny and Frenchie


Roxie and Piaf
