An Evening Treat

Here at MinxHQ, we love summer evenings. The temperature is just right outside- not too hot, and not too cold (…we totally get you Goldilocks). This particular summer evening in Asheville was made that much sweeter at our shoot in front of The Hop Ice Cream Parlor!

Skater Dress

Skater Dress The Hop is a great way to get your sweets fix for a reasonable price…which pretty sums up how we feel about this ensemble on Josie! This darling crop-top, dress, AND necklace combined are under $70.00!Skater Dress Skater Dress

Like the ice cream, we’re finding this sweet look pretty irresistible…

Josie’s look is available entirely on the online store:

My Best Friend’s a Skater Dress $23
What It’s All About Necklace $16
Minnie Dot Crop Top $27
Florence Sandals in Teal $57

White Hot

Scientists use a measure called the “color index” to find out how hot the surface of a star is. And this just in: our Off the Grid Skirt, the star of our last shoot, is WHITE HOT.

Space Cadet Space Cadet Moon Collection expertly combines a stretchy and fitted pencil silhouette with a structured tulle overlay. It’s a little unexpected, and a lot of fun…the epitome of a Minx woman!

Space Cadet

We love that even though the skirt is structured, it can also go with the flow (AKA the breeze from this gorgeous shot). And have we mentioned those amazing platforms from Dolce Vita? THE shoe trend of the summer really brings this futuristic look together.

Space Cadet

Grace is the loveliest space cadet we’ve ever seen! Where will you travel in your version of the ensemble?

You can find the skirt from this look online, and the rest of the pieces at the downtown boutique!

Raceway in Remix

LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, START YOUR ENGINES! We’re all sorts of revved up about our latest shoot in West Asheville.

Anita Remix Anita Remix

Josie is pictured in our Anita Re-mix heel in pepper green. The color usually means “go” but in this case, all the traffic was brought to a halt!

Re-mix vintage shoes are a classic reproduction of popular styles from the 1920′s to the 1950′s. The brand is famous for the sporty comfort of their wedges, sexy high heels, and lace up oxfords. They are begging to become your new favorite pair- whether you’re off to the races or just to the mall!

Anita RemixWith that plaid Moon Collection top, those high-waisted jeans, and killer Re-mix heels…Josie is a 1950′s starlet.
