Have A Seat

If you’ve been with us awhile, then the genius that is Johnny Was designs will come as no surprise to you. Embroidery, being one of the biggest trends this season, is one of the most defining features of a Johnny Was garment and they have been in the game for awhile! These special pieces speak to that vintage, well-loved feel with the detail and dedication of a hand-stitched embroidery, bringing life and story to each piece. We strongly suggest investing in Johnny Was that speaks to you – its true wearable art and translates to any event. Understated and yet eye-catching, this tunic dress from Johnny Was needs no introduction and is not quickly forgotten.

B Sure Its B-Sharp

Whenever you can combine affordability with comfort + style, its a no-brainer. That’s what we love about our collection of B-Sharp. Their fabric is 96% bamboo and its extremely soft and light. We have tons of styles ranging from t-shirt dresses to maxi + midi dresses – even great tops, too! Ask any Minxie and you can be assured that she owns and loves at least one piece from this amazing brand.

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.
