We are always looking for accessories that are unexpected and brands that aren’t on every shelf when you walk in a store. We buy them in limited quantities because we want you to know that when you invest in an item that is unique and a statement in your wardrobe, you won’t see everyone else wearing it.
That is why we love the purse-maker Welden and the jewelry and accessory line Lizzie Fortunato. Each is a small women-owned company that has a distinct viewpoint. The women who started Welden are both moms and the duo behind Lizzie Fortunato are twin sisters, Lizzie and Kathryn. I love a good family-run business! Both lines have a deep commitment to quality: items and handcrafted and made from the finest materials.
The pieces from each speak for themselves and I think they literally speak to you when you see them. Of course, when I unpack the boxes they are saying to me “you need me in your wardrobe,” but you could’ve guessed that.
We wanted to share even more from each of these two spring collections so we are hosting a trunk show next weekend for both lines at The Hive. Starting Thursday, April 12 through Sunday April 15, all pieces from each line are 20 percent off. The designers are sending us a little extra inventory, so this will be the largest selection we will have from each line.
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.
