La Vie Jewelry straight from Paris

La Vie Jewelry straight from Paris
I am so excited about this new jewelry line that I bought yesterday. The designer is from Washington and started this line using antique buttons after her mother passed away and she inherited her mom's button box. She fondly remembers playing with all of those beautiful buttons and wanted to enjoy them in a way that would enhance the beauty of each button, and allow her to enjoy them daily. This is her vision of how to love all of the beautiful buttons that are floating around our world. She has created bracelets, necklances, earrings, and rings. Each piece features a 100-180 year old button. I had so much fun looking through her collection and picking my favorite buttons. Stop by the store to see all of them in person and pick the antique button that speaks to you.
Prices are $42-$98

To market, to market...

I'm off to Vegas this week for market. I love market. So many fun things, so much people watching, so many ugly things to curl your lip at... Love it!
Tonight I ran up to the store to see new items hoping to be inspired for some new market outfits. It worked. I've been eyeballing several pieces for a while now, and if there were still in the store. tonight..then they are mine! I've put together four market outfits with some brand new Fall pieces we've just received, some pieces from years past, and some pieces that have been...well...hanging around the store. Let me know what you think!!! (if you'd like to read my original post that I wrote at 10:00 pm, instead of the short and abbreviated version I'm writing now at 12:52, then please scroll all the way to the bottom of my blog. You'd think when you publish something new on a site that it would be somewhere near the top. Well, not so the case with this. I'm a dork.) Good night!


Outfit #1

Love this!! Fabulous little silk print dress with shirred waist. I paired it with a Hazel structured jacket from a few years ago and black Art pants that have been in the store for...ummm...a bit. They fit great, are Jodhpur styled in the hips, and are long in the crotch. They are super cute in the legs, which is why I'm layering them with the dress over. I'm not sure I'd wear them without something long over, but they are a fun layering piece. I added a red belt and these amazing, terribly Fabulous French shoes I bought last summer. The shoes for market will not last...i'll put them on for dinner:)

My favorite!!

Outfit #2

I've loved this top since it first come in to the store. It is cotton, shirred waist, lace insets and a ruffled front. I love the femine, flirtiness of it, and you can't ever go wrong with white. The pants are ART from The Netherlands and they have been in the store since the beginning of the summer. Has no one tried these on??? I think they are soooo cool. Look at all of that detailing! The color is neat too, kind of taupey neutral. Jodhpur styling through the hips, great pockets and button detailing at hem. I added a great leather contoured belt with a big buckle and Fabulous Brown boots. We still have all of these pieces in the store, we'll just have to check sizing for you.

Outfit #3

Jane Mohr designs the neatest skirts. This is a fabulous black skirt from her with tiny little flecks of color. It has pockets in the front and great detailing. Earlier in the summer we received these fabulous linen almost sheer Tee shirts with organza trim. I have worn it ALL summer! I love the sleeve on this and the pretty neckline. We just received the black layer vest from Mystree and I thought it was a fun addition to the outfit. And of course a belt...i love belts. I may end of wearing my black cowboy boots with this for comfort walking all over Vegas, but the flip flops work too.

Outfit #4

I'll probably travel home in this on Thursday. I've been waiting to try on this Hazel navy knit jacket with a hood since I spotted it over a week ago. There are a few left!! I've had the ART skirt for several seasons and it is one of my all time favorites. The navy jacket is the perfect color match with the embroidery of the skirt. I add a natural lace top from...ahum....a big chain store A__th___po___gie. Yes, I know, occasionally I'll shop in other stores. ;) Sassy, sorta casual, comfy, won't set the metal detectors off! Perfect!

Fabulous Belts

May Flowers bring...daydreams.

Sigh. I love everything that we received yesterday. It is all interesting, textural, drapey, sophisticated, and beautiful. Ronen Chen is still my favorite, and then ART next. It's all so dreamy. It makes me want to pack a bag, travel off to some fabulous city and visit every museum in the area...Chicago, New York, Paris, Prague, yes I think Prague with it's cobble stone streets, red roof tops, and art vendors on the Charles bridge. Wouldn't we feel very European wearing these new garments? I would.

2010...

Ok, so we are finally organized and ready for 2010 in our store with newly finished beautiful wood floors. Yea! I wish I had sanded them 5 years ago, the entire store looks so much better, everything is highlighted!

Spring clothing has started to arrive and the store is transitioning once again to the next season. I love this time of year…lighter fabrics, more color, new styles. I just read in the Wall Street Journal from last week that “everything is in” for fashion. The designers are showing hodge podges of everything from years past creating new looks for today. We are finally at the fashion point when your personal style and body shape determining what to buy and wear. FINALLY!!! I was never one to be “on trend”…I didn’t wear mini skirts when they were “in”, skinny jeans never looked good on my, and I’ve never liked trench coats, but I always felt like in was “in fashion” anyway. I wore and still wear what I like and what I think looks best on my body shape. I am so happy to hear the fashion “Knows” feel the same. So, wear what you like everyone and you’ll be perfectly in fashion. The fashion trend is out!

For our early spring deliveries, I’m seeing lots of saturated colors like navy, purple, orange, turquoise, acid green. On the opposite scale you’ll see the fabulous neutral shades in whites, creams, and grays, with lots of organic cottons, knits and linens, but all very textural. Buy classic pieces so you don’t get sick of wearing them and this also allows you to change the “look” of the piece by adding different layering pieces under or over the piece, and different jewelry and scarves.

I’ve seen lots of fun hair accessories recently. I started making flower headbands for the store in November as a fun and inexpensive accessory. I use beautiful silk and fabric flowers with feathers, pearls, felted wool (I felted myself), jewelry pieces, beads, etc…

Each one is a little different and they are selling very well.

The store will celebrate it’s 9th anniversary on March 17th, St Patrick’s Day. I remember the first day I was open, I was so scared no one would find me in the back of the Hill Country Music store. Thankfully, a few people did find my and I sold $67.00 that first day. Every time I sold one item, I’d buy 2 to replace it. That’s how I finally got to where I am today…a beautiful store with lots of beautiful clothing and accessories, in a Historic Building right in the heart of Main Street Fredericksburg. No matter where I go from here, I’ll always remember my first tiny store and the opportunities and training that it brought me in my humble beginnings. Thanks to my dad for letting me set up shop in the back of his music store so I could learn the ropes.

In a year when money seems to be tight for many of us, I’ll be concentrating on great values on clothing, an fabulous accessories and pretty jewelry, plus of course those obscure and unique fashions from far and wide. Come shop with us and see what treasure you might find!

Renovation...

Next week, January 11-15, we will be closed for a remodel. The carpet will be out and the wood floors re-vived! Come see us Saturday the 16th and expericence the "New" store:)!

A New Year...

wow...another year has passed and the store will be 9 on March 17th. How insignificant this seems, knowing what every person goes through in a passing day. Today, I am saddened my the loss of a child, an acquaintance's 10th grade daughter, killed in a car wreck last night coming home from a Bible study out on Loudon road. Perhaps she had already learned her greatest lesson, forgiveness, and God wanted her home. Teri wrote me a thank you card yesterday, always beautiful, and she memorized and quoted these beautiful words from an old hymn. I've read them over and over today.

"Could we with ink the ocean fill
and were the skies of parchment made,
Were every stalk on earth a quill
And every man a scribe by trade,
To write the Love of God above
Would drain the ocean dry,
Nor could the scroll contain the whole
Though stretched from sky to sky."
