Above: Isabel Marant Samuel sweater (scored at full on clearance at Net-a-porter), Frame Forever Karlie flares, Manolo Blahnik heels (similar version from Manolo here), Free People vegan clutch, Celine sunglasses
Who: As in, who am I listening to. Sylvan Esso, another fabulous album from 2014.
What: As in, what went down this week/end. Basement runner, basement floor, new mantle, refinished stairs. Home stretch people! Basement reno is almost done!
It's too cold to dress at all put together. My clothing diet has consisted of sweaters, on sweaters. I finally scored this pretty number on clearance at Net-a-Porter. Which is still going strong with some great finds.
Where: As in, where it's at. Launches, events, general goings on you need to know about.
Louis Boston dropped sale news (currently 60% off), and then immediately dropped the bomb that they are CLOSING. While I have to admit, shopping there was at times cost prohibitive, they will leave a huge void in the local fashion scene. Was it the move to Seaport? That's what everyone is positing. My guess, just time to shutter and move on to bigger and better for owner Debi Greenberg. If you're going to go out, do it at top, with a bang. Sad to see an institution like this come to an end, whatever the back story. Sad for shoppers. Sad for people who appreciated the groundbreaking fashion. Sad for Boston, really. From my first pair of clearance designer jeans post college (I can't even remember what they were now, but man did I feel cool in them) to trips out to the waterfront for Jennifer Chun and brunch at Sam's, you will be missed Louis. You can read Debi's farewell here.
I am excited to be involved with the local chapter of Fashion Group International (FGI) and even more excited that the first event is happening this month (with none other than Luke Aaron, might ring a bell from this recent interview). Promises to be a great evening, please brave the cold and join us. And check out FGI on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for all our amazing programming. 2015 is going to be a good one.
Last but certainly not least, sale season continues with another local fave, Mint Julep, who kicked off their gigantic end of season sale on January 9th. 25-75% off fall and winter items. Support local folks!
