new in:  Kirribilla

new gorgeous HEAD TURNERS just arrived from our favorite "dress-up" collection, Kirribilla.  i have a late september wedding and one of these is coming with me for sure.  

the BLYTHE is a stunnng mix of subtle drama and simplicity.  it also comes in black (faint).


and the PEASY.  i am always seduced by a feminine petal sleeve.  this one is flawless!

so much more to come!


easing in...

the fact that i saw Central Park gardeners raking LEAVES yesterday made me a little sad- but this image below triggered some excitement for cool SEPTEMBER.  who doesn't love a classic FALL combo of camel, black and a little leopard?  

i even went so far as to dust off my old-but-still-great cat-kicks and give them the top shelf of my shoe armoire.  

i'm also eager to welcome back some of my favorite knits!  Holiday's extra fine merino wool & silk (private labeled for us by Kinross Cashmere) is available once again!  we're bringing in some new styles and bringing back a few that i never seem to tire of.  i wore these next two like a crazy lady all last year.  mine are still in excellent condition- so trust me when i say they are a fabulous investment!

the Wide Cowl Neck in a slim fit is super transitional.  i love it worn alone, but it's also perfect layered under a blazer.  this one comes in 5 colors (click here to see)

and the Oversized Cowl (the ultimate legging tunic) is a MUST.  i have in every color and it's such a CHIC quick-fix to the  "UGH- i don't know what to wear" dilemma.  you just can't go wrong.  see all 4 colors here.

these sell out time and time again- but we can get them in a snap (like a few days!)

you can also go to www.kinrosscashmere.com to peruse the entire collection.  EVERYTHING (men's styles, too!) is available through Holiday.  pop in or call us for pricing! 


a fall favorite...

i got to talk about my "must-haves" for Fall in the Herald yesterday- and a sweater dress was at the top of my list!  the only bummer is that they often add extra bulk.  well- THANK YOU LAUREN MOFFATT for making a sleek version- that is also perfect for layering.  the "Big Deep" dress in navy & white houndstooth is 100% wool (cozy) and 1000% cute.  

i love this piece worn alone- but how darling is it styled with Moffatt's signature pintuck top? (and those booties?!)

Moffatt does a pintuck blouse each season in a new print.  i'm a huge fan.  below is the "Woodstock" playfully paired with floral.  

 in store now!

extra extra!

with so much digital (everything) these days- seeing some good-old PRINT is refreshing.  especially if it's a super-duper Boston daily (my grandparents read this)!  you know i love contributing to the Boston Herald's online style column every week- but when they asked me to chat Fall fashion for today's actual ink-y paper i was thrilled.  here is the "spread" featuring Bloomingdales, Rue La La, Gretchen Monahan and ME!



trendy, trend, trend

sigh.  you know we don't usually faint for 'it' much ;)  but- i am totally wanting to sport a tiny bit-o-camo this Fall.  the best way to test the trend? a $28 pair of canvas kicks from yours truly... at Holiday now.

and WOW.  i'll report back on my school shopping experience with my 13 year old niece here in NYC.  

talk about a BATTLE FIELD.
