Modern Sophisticate in 4 Love and Liberty

We’re head over heels in love with our new line-  4 Love and Liberty. A subdivision of long time favorite brand, Johnny Was (also now at Minx!), 4 Love and Liberty is the “go-to line for modern-day aesthetes seeking ethereal, flirty dresses and tops with hints of transparency, lace, embroidery, and beading.”

The innovative pieces feel romantic and modern and are dripping with vintage-inspired details (we’re especially loving the scalloped hem and shell & rhinestone buttons on the Billie Tunic). And it gets even better… the line features luxe materials, like silk chiffon and burnout velvet, so they feels as glamourous as they look!

Try it with a short slip, urban jewelry, and a longer cardigan, like this super soft duster from Cheap Monday, for a look that is hip, sophisticated, and super feminine.

Through the Looking Glass in Louie et Lucie

The weekend is over. Once again, we’re setting our alarms, and begrudgingly climbing out of the covers to ready ourselves for the busy day ahead.  While Monday mornings are still (way) behind in the popularity polls, this week we’re facing the day with a positive attitude and a killer look.

Why so cheery? New pieces from Amsterdam based brand, Louie et. Lucie. The looks from this charming collection were inspired by traditional styles of the 1920’s-70’s from Paris, Milan, and the Riviera. We’re loving their Mona dress- Warm, comfortable, and fun,  this dress is the perfect piece to make your day bright- even if your head is still dreaming.
