I Dare You to Stop Staring

With the holidays around the corner, consider this an open invitation to rock that show -stopper dress you’ve been holding out for. It may be sparkly, it may be bodycon, it may be crushed velvet, it may even have rhinestones top to bottom- but either way, NOW is the time! At Minx, we literally cannot stop staring at this Stop Staring Dress with beautiful ruffle and bow detail. Although the dress is clearly the main event, don’t feel like you should hold back on accessories. Our David Aubrey necklace and Extasia cameo earrings are bold and perfectly compliment the monochromatic tones of the dress and shoes. Wearing this dress, we actually dare you to try to stop staring!

Winter Inspiration from the Archives

What a wild winter this has been! Record high temperatures made for a holiday season like we’ve never seen before. But, as all good things tend to do, our Christmas in the sun came to and end and now we’re right smack back in the middle of winter. Maybe it’s only by comparision, but this Janurary chill is feeling especially shocking this year.

If you’re anything like us, dressing for winter can be a puzzle. Our favorite flirty wears are often pushed aside for the more practical (read: shapless, bulky, and big) pieces. We’ve gotta stay warm, right?! Well, rest easy fearless fashionistas! There is a way to dress for the weather without sacrifing style! And how better to remember than a trip through the Minx archives!

So get ready to dust off that duster, layer up your favorite frock, and get inspired by some of our favorite looks from winters past!

It’s a beautiful Friday in Asheville! The weather is warm, the leaves are turning, and we’ve got the perfect tune to set the mood for a fantastic fall weekend! The parkway is calling, so grab a friend, hop in the car, and turn up our Friday Jam!

What’s on deck this week? Kurt Vile’s “Pretty Pimpin” from his new album,

It’s Friday, Let’s Jam!

Happy Friday Friends! Another work week has flown by (as they always seem to around Minx HQ.) As the weekend approaches, let’s make a point to step back, slow down, and make the time to enjoy another beautiful weekend of summer before they’re gone!

This Friday, we’re turning to the ultimate feel-good band and a track guaranteed to remind you to savor every last drop of summertime sunshine- “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” from The Beach Boys 1966 album Pet Sounds



It’s Friday, Let’s Jam!

Happy Friday! We’re celebrating today with open windows, easy breezy summer dresses, and our favorite track from Lake Street Dive! Lake Street Dive has been getting a lot of air-time around Minx this week (not to mention some serious sing-alongs!) With beautiful harmonies, serious talent, and totally catchy tunes, we have a feeling this group will be a summertime favorite for a long time to come! So come along, grab a friend, crank up the volume, and join our Friday Jam!

Lake Street Dive- Bad Self Portraits

On deck this week? Lake Street Dive’s “You Go Down Smooth” from their album, Bad Self Portraits. Enjoy!
