Tea Time

There’s something magical about cool mornings, birds chirping and breezy afternoons that make Springtime so dreamy. If we were to write a fairytale, it would most definitely take place in a far-away land that is always in a state of Spring. We were able to harness that magical dreaminess in this Traffic People lace maxi dress. The sky blue slip is included so while this dress may look fragile and delicately placed, it’s a piece you can toss on and be transported to your favorite fairytale. Something about pastels and gold thread that sends you right into the pages of a storybook. We decided to compliment the airiness of the dress by keeping accessories and shoes in the same pastel color-family. For those chilly, Spring evenings, a soft knit cardigan or cropped denim jacket would fit in effortlessly with this look.

Make A Day of It

We hear it all the time – “I’m not a hat girl.” Or “I can ONLY wear skinny jeans.” Or “I just don’t want to draw attention to myself.” We understand having a reliable uniform and we understand the comforting feeling of wardrobe staples and go-to’s. In fact, they are an incredibly important part of building personal style. At the same time, its also easy to box ourselves into a comfort zone and start giving ourselves fashion rules that let us get away with self-deprecating thoughts and mantras. At Minx, we love gently encouraging our customers, and OURSELVES, to try something they never have (or have before and weren’t feeling at the time!) and start challenging these self-imposed fashion rules with empowerment being the ultimate goal. So –  toss on a hat, try out a bold print, or come grab that white button-down you’ve been eyeing that will always fit just right. Either way – we are here and we are in your corner!

Pretty in Mink Pink

As the winter chill unpredictably creeps in,  find clever ways to layer up without loading yourself down. Nobody likes to walk into the room and have to hold onto stacks of outer layers that are no longer necessary in heated space. Find a long sleeve crop top or your favorite sweater, and throw it on top of a dress to add some warmth without sacrificing your shape and silhouette. And when winter settles in for the season, say ‘good-bye’ to bare legs and seamlessly introduce some tights into this look.

Moogfest Day!

We think it’s so cool to have Moog Music just down the street from us, and it’s even cooler that they are once again putting on their electronic music festival this year. If you place your order for this outfit by 2pm today, you can pick it up and wear it to the festival this evening. We’re hoping to see Bear in Heaven and then head over to see Nas tonight. It’s exciting to have so much talent here on top of all the creative people already present in this wonderful town of ours. Go on and enjoy it! ❤
