Elizabeth’s Favorite Spring Pieces Plus Lookbooks

I can’t believe I am sending out the spring lookbooks so late this year. I think I got preoccupied with all the trunk shows and spring breaks that I totally forgot. So, you have to forgive us a little, because some of the items have been in for a bit. I even had to remove some styles from the lookbook that have come and gone. But we still have tons of great stuff to deliver over the next few months! That is the big difference between having a clothing and a shoe store, with clothing there, is always new merchandise arriving daily.

One of my friends, Camille, asked me what my favorite things of the season were, so I thought I would share that with everyone. I have basically bought everything Tibi that we ordered this season, along with pieces we don’t carry (special orders are a problem I have). Look for a post on all things Tibi coming soon. What I did realize when it comes to the clothing items that I picked, I am like everyone else, and I am ready to get dressed.

When it comes to shoes, I seem to be keeping things a little more casual. When you have lived in sneakers for a year, it is hard to switch to a heel. I am keeping it comfortable with slides and sneakers this spring and summer. Don’t forget about our great selection of hats – we have them in every shape and color this summer! Then, of course, we have great activewear from Varley and lounge sets from Skin and Donni. Bring on the warm weather – we are ready at The Hive and The Shoe Hive, and of course, you can always shop online.

  • The latest from Elizabeth
I spent the first part of my career as a copy-writer who helped elected officials brag about their support for entrepreneurs. Then I decided to get off the printed page and do it myself. The Shoe Hive made a splash on the fashion scene in Washington, and was named the region’s best shoe store in its first year. Fourteen years later, I have tripled the store’s size and also opened a sister store, The Hive. At The Hive, we offer clothing lines that are sophisticated and approachable like Rag & Bone, Tibi, Raquel Allegra, Ulla Johnson and Veronica Beard. We have tried to fill our racks with clothing you will want to wear all the time, elevated basics that are worth the investment.

Heard the buzz? The Shoe Hive & The Hive are a pair of luxury boutiques in Old Town Alexandria. Featuring both big name designers like Rag & Bone and Stuart Weitzman and smaller brands like AGL and L'Agence, our unique selection and impeccable service are what set us apart.
