What Would Jane Do?

Hi Spring! The Minxies are thrilled you’ve arrived! The time has come for strolls in the park, outdoor picnics, riverside get-togethers, Easter celebrations, weddings galore- and so, so much more! And believe us, we are READY. Needing that staple piece to seamlessly guide you through all of your Springtime events? Two words: Susana Monaco. Now, if you’ve been with us for awhile this shouldn’t come as a surprise. We love the sturdy, yet extreme comfort of the fabric used in all her pieces. The fit is incomparable and these pieces are made to hold their shape through many, many wears. This lilac color is the epitome of Spring to us! Its pastel and bright, yet can still be styled as a neutral if that’s more of your color pallet. Grab a light layer for those crisp mornings and cooling breeze, and you’ll be totally set for whatever comes your way this season.

Avoid annoying pinches for not wearing green… and look great doing it! Truly, this beautiful silk dress would shine at any occasion; but what’s a better way to celebrate the Irish than by having a pint wearing something so chic?  It’s not full-on spring yet, so bring along this soft, cuddly Kersh cardigan to ward off the air’s pesky chill.  Bases = covered.

What we’re Loving!

Joti – This yellow Tano bag! I adore Tano as a whole. I have a few of their bags and they age so gracefully. The leather gets supper soft and there’s just something about a big bag you can fit everything in. Although I haven’t taken this beauty home as of yet it is at the top of an ever growing list of Minx must-haves. We also have it in a killer deep dark purple. Get it before it’s gone! ($221)

Jesame – My Earnest Sewn black skinny jeans in the Harlan cut! Earnest Sewn has the best cuts, long lean and classic. I love the quality of the denim and the smooth lines they create. You can never go wrong with a great pair of skinny black jeans! ($157)

Angi – Every March I find the perfect springy dress: cotton, v-neck, cap sleevs, a few ruffles.  This year I didn’t  have to look that hard before I found it.  This Mavi dress ($86) is perfect!!  It has the best details to add a little bit of elegance to the perfect summer dress. Love it! (PS there are only 3 left as I write this, half of them have already sold!)

Letitia – My Dolce Vita Delfina Sandals ($78)! I still think about the grey Frye sandals that I missed out on last year…  Don’t we all have at least one “Missed out on that at Minx” story?  A prized item that we took one day to long to think on and then the next time we went back, it was gone.  Even though it’s still March and I probably won’t get to wear these tomorrow, I wasn’t going to let these grey and chartreuse gladiator beauties march me by!  Love the colors, love the fit, can’t wait to wear them with everything!

Katie – The other night, I went out for a drink with friends at Fred’s Speakeasy, my fave dive in town.  If you’ve never been there, I can tell you it is unlike the Frog Bar or any other establishment with a touch of grace. The scene is predominately young, DIYers who don’t mind smelling like an ashtray in the morning.  As I sip my drink and take in the scene, my eye immediately fixates on a pair of earrings across the bar. Of all things to catch my eye (as I am usually attracted to wild patterns, hats, wigs, or the occasional dress in Fred’s) the simple drop earring from By Boe seemed more stunning than anything else in the overcrowded cave. It just goes to show that something small can have great impact on one’s aesthetic.
