Not into Shorts? We’ve got Pants.

I have written before about how I never knew people didn’t wear shorts. Like, there are people who just won’t put them on for any reason. I didn’t realize this until I had a clothing store. The older I get, the more I am starting to understand. I had on some jean shorts the other day, and as I tugged at them every time I sat down, I started to comprehend the aversion.

That’s not to say that I am ready to give up; I just now get wanting to make sure you are more covered. But at the same time, who wants to be hot? I mean, it is so humid and gross these days and we all need some relief.

Well, we have tried to make sure we have a selection of summer pants that keep you covered and a little bit cooler. The camo pants from Mother are my favorite. This selection is lightweight, but you can wear them into fall – so come in and get started!

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.
