market report: spring sneak peek

Whether it is the latest workout trend, next season’s fashion, or the hottest new make-up – I love being one step ahead of any craze. Perhaps that is part of the reason I enjoy going to market so much. As you know, earlier this month we finished our spring purchasing, and I wanted to give you all a glimpse into some pieces from both new and current designers that will be hitting the shelves of Kiskadee soon!

Finding out about new designers is one of my favorite things about being a boutique owner (hence the desire to be ahead of any craze)! I typically find them at market, but hear about lines through friends and family as well. Have any of you been out of town and saw an amazing piece of jewelry or clothing line that you would love to get closer to home? Let us know about some of your favorites, and they might just make their way to Alexandria!


Julie Brown

“Dream Big. Dress Well. Be You.” How can you not love a brand with this motto? We rediscovered Julie Brown this month at market, and could not pass up her vibrant colors and eye-catching designs. The dresses we ordered are ready-to-wear and perfect to pack for vacation in the Caribbean or dinner out with your girlfriends (once it is warmer!).



Are you ever in search of the perfect outfit for a dressy-casual occasion, such as a baby shower or lunch with friends? Bringing Taylor dresses to Kiskadee this spring is going to make that search much easier! Taylor finds inspiration in vintage trends while incorporating this season’s latest details, giving you a classic yet fashion-forward look.



How many of you are guilty of running to the grocery store or to pick up your kids from school in your favorite yoga pants and a t-shirt? I know that I am. Sometimes putting an outfit together is hard, but Finley makes it so much easier. Finley shirts pair well with denim, or you can wear one of their shirt dresses for a simple but tailored look.



Another new designer coming to Kiskadee this spring is Hutch, a New York-based company that focuses on timeless pieces that are both feminine and versatile. This maxi dress in particular can be paired with Jack Rogers for vacation this spring, or dressed up with a wedge sandal and statement earrings for a dinner out this summer.


Nicole Miller

Many of you are probably familiar with Nicole Miller, which has been a staple at Kiskadee for many years. When I put on Nicole Miller, I instantly feel feminine, sexy, and refined. Their dresses emphasize my best assets, while giving me a va-va-voom look!

The rest of our purchases from these designers – and others! – are starting to make their way into Kiskadee. Be sure to stop in soon to check out what we have in store!
