Powered by Women: Instagram Lives

Last week, we announced our ‘Powered by Women’ initiative to celebrate Women’s History Month. We wanted to shine a light on what it means to be a business owner in Alexandria and maybe […]

The Patterson Group Models Veronica Beard

Last year, we had the women of The Patterson Group model for our Veronica Beard Trunk Show. It just made sense. The Veronica’s of Veronica Beard are sisters-in-law who built an amazing brand […]

Powered by Women

If you ask me my favorite thing about owning a small business, the answer would be easy. The thing I cherish the most is the community and friendships that the Alexandria business community […]

Bringing Back Joy with the Veronica Beard Trunk Show

Earlier this week, I announced our first trunk show of the season, AGL. Usually we start with Veronica Beard, but this year we are doing the reverse. I figured why not change things up […]

AGL Trunk Show: It’s Time to Put Shoes on Again!

This month is Women’s History Month, so it is only fitting that we have three big events with some of our favorite female designers. The first one is not just one female business […]

All About the Henley

The Capelet Evolution

This post will be sticking with our lounge theme – I mean, it seems to be all we talk about in this chilly pandemic season. I didn’t want to leave out what might […]

I love collaborating with friends and fellow business owners. So, when Megan Brown called me with a cry for help, I was happy to oblige. Okay, so it wasn’t really a cry for […]

Anna Beck Trunk Show

We usually don’t start our trunk shows until spring, but we decided maybe this year we all could use something fun in January. We are kicking off 2021 with our first ever Anna […]

Living Without Cancer

I write things in my head before I actually write them. I had recently written in my head an update on Brad and his cancer journey and I was ready to put pen […]

What’s Arriving at The Hive & The Shoe Hive?

When I went to peruse our new look book it was a bit surreal. I have not seen a single one of these items in person. Packages at the store are always met […]

This week in Alexandria Stylebook I am featuring items you might want to buy with those gift cards that are burning a hole in your wallet. One item at our store that doesn’t […]
