New at The Hive: AGOLDE

Last fall, many of you met my amazing Citizens of Humanity representative, Griffin, when she hosted an event at our store. I have worked with her for years and she actually lives in Virginia as well, in Richmond. She is wonderful to work with, and I am always looking for more reasons to get to deal with her.

When she sent me the line sheets last winter for AGOLDE I knew I wanted to also carry this line, partly because of Griffin but also because of the great cuts, fabrics, and the price!

We had planned on launching the line this spring with a trunk show to give everyone an expanded look at the line. Clearly that didn’t work out thanks to COVID, so we are starting with a small shipment (they just opened the warehouse back up in Los Angeles) to introduce the line.

Yes, they are a denim line and we have some great shorts and white denim to show you how the fit is, but what I was really excited about was the sweatshirts. I feel like I have been living in my “dressy” sweatshirts during the pandemic and they have so many I want to add to my ever-growing collection. I mean I don’t have a V-neck puffy sleeve sweatshirt. And wait until you see fall! It is so good it made it nearly impossible for me edit down my buy.

I hope you enjoy this curated capsule we have for summer and stay tuned for a great fall delivery!



  • 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.
