It’s definitely a bit strange to buy Fall clothes in March, but for those in the boutique business, buying happens 3-4 months ahead of time. It’s always a little bit weird to be making decisions on coats and fall tweeds when springtime shorts have not even made it out onto the shop floor!
This last market trip was no different…my favorite lines were Theory (no surprise), 12th Street by Cynthia Vincent (I am such a big fan of how they mix feminine with the masculine elements), Kooba handbags continue to make me long for each style that they show me, AG cords (coming early in the season) are not a thing of the past but a precursor to what my fall wardrobe will be built around. Last but not least are Liebeskind boots straight from Berlin (we currently carry a ton of their bags which we LOVE), Alice and Olivia printed tops that will make you feel like you need to throw a party and Sjobeck (JesseRay and Garrett really know how to present a collection that is elegant, fun and fashion forward).
Some pictures to get you in the Fall mood…although let’s not rush it.
