Time for an Accessories Update

We have sent out the look books for both The Shoe Hive and The Hive, and I hope you are as excited as we are about our spring styles. We also know that sometimes it is difficult to start buying spring clothing when the threat of snow is always out there! Despite the fact that many school-aged kids and avid skiers might be rooting for this, the rest of us are rooting for sunshine and warmer weather.

If maybe you got a gift card for the holidays that is burning a hole in your pocket, or maybe you just want to add something new to our wardrobe, we have the perfect solution. Accessories! You don’t need a certain climate to wear new earrings, necklaces, or to carry a new purse.

We have recently unpacked new items from some of our favorite accessory lines like Lizzie Fortunato, Clare V, Jerome Dreyfuss, and Mignonne Gavigan. It is hard to pick a favorite but the green animal print purse from Clare V has to come home with me, I mean I don’t own any green animal print! But really it is hard to decide – come see if you agree.


  • 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.
