We ❤ Hearts

I must admit, I used to turn up my nose at heart things. I don’t know why, I just didn’t get it. Maybe I have just gotten softer as I’ve aged or maybe it was having kids, but for some reason I now have completely pivoted and I now have a thing for hearts.

The fashion world lately has a heart thing going, as well. Maybe we all just realized the world needs a little more love. Whatever the reason, I haven’t been able to resist hearts (or stars) when I see them. Since the holiday of love is upon us, I thought I would share some of our heart-shaped favorites.

If you are looking for something to send a friend, a daughter, or whoever it might be, the My Love Pendant or The Follow Your Bliss pendant by the aptly named line Hart will be the perfect piece. Each is only $88 and they are sure to make the person on the receiving end smile.

There are lots of other great options: the limited edition ClicClac by Jerome is coming home with me if it is still left after February 14th and I think it is perfectly paired with the Frank & Eileen heart-patterned shirt.


  • 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.
