slouchy & ruffled perfection

Our favorite mix right now: a bit of girly (like this ruffled t-shirt from St. Grace) and some slouchy tomboy coziness (like this oversized cardigan from Laurie B.). Why wear one kind of look head to toe when mixing it up is so much more fun? Come visit us and we'll show you how to do it!

co-lab bags

We are in love with these beautiful vegan (non-leather!) bags from co-lab. They are big enough for a laptop, buttery soft, and still light enough to carry around all day! They also have the cutest black and white striped lining and plenty of pockets for your stuff. The red style is $104 and the black tote is $83. Snag one before we sell out, we only have a few in the shop!

Just because the weather is getting chillier and the skies are getting grayer doesn't mean you have to wear black from head to toe. Ignore the gloom and add some color to your wardrobe! We've got piles and piles of colorful t-shirts, sweaters and cardigans. There is something for everyone on your list, including you! Because you've been quite good this year, right? (We'll just nod and smile.)
