It’s the dead of summer and so hot outside, but let me tell you, inside the doors of The Shoe Hive and The Hive (along with our AC blasting) we are popping with pre-fall essentials! Recently while I was merchandising The Hive, I thought there was so much correlation to the 80s that I suddenly felt inspired to do a post highlighting the cycle of fashion and how everything truly resurfaces again.
There was something so punk-rock about the 80s and I just love that vibe. You had many contrasting styles, as well: high-waisted (somewhat tight) jeans vs. baggy, loose fitting trousers (what we now refer to as the culotte); a sheer, layering ensemble vs. the full-on power suit. Sequins vs. plaids. The list goes on. But what I loved about the 80s is how many trends there were and how many of those trends are very current at the moment. I had my fabulous sis-in-law model some of my favorite looks to make that 80s vibe feel current.
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.
