Holiday Happenings at The Hive & The Shoe Hive

New Jewelry and a Can’t-Miss Trunk Show

Giving Back: Charity Day at The Shoe Hive

I have fallen into the honey pot when it comes to life. I have said this before, but I feel like I need to make sure I never stop saying it. In childhood […]

Stylist Challenge: 3 Looks Based on Height, Styled by Rosana

You’ve seen me rave before in this space about the awesome people I’ve met who are fashion entrepreneurs in our great little cobblestone corner of America, but my circle of inspiration is not […]

Fall Trunk Show Series: Gigi New York, October 27-29

Carpool Chic

Carpool Chic

I’ve written this before, but I’m going to keep writing it until I break the habit. We all fall into the trap of wearing our workout clothes all day, even if we haven’t […]
Love Letter to Alexandria
