Now that Memorial Day has past, it is officially time to start thinking about summertime. Here are a few must-haves for this season.
Check out our pin of the week: this geometric textile art by Jane Denton. Her work has a delicate quality; yet at the same time, it has texture and depth created by her use of embroidery. Not to mention, I love her cool color combination! See more of her work on her Instagram.

The name Charlotte Ronson has become synonymous with a fashion design sense that merges runway style with ready-to-wear accessibility. Her combination of femininity and street-style can take you from the office to cocktails at the hippest spots. And now she’s in venturing into new territory where she’ll bring her unique look: stationery design. Ronson just partnered with Tiny Prints to develop a collection that is sure to be trend-forward and super chic.
Last week in NYC, I attended the Shutterfly Designer Soirée at the Bowery Hotel where Charlotte was in attendance. My good friend, Jill Smith and I were interviewed about this new partnership by the Examiner. Read the article here. I can’t wait to see what Charlotte comes up with — we’ll update you when her stationery is ready for purchase!
We are in the midst of graduation season and along with tassels and diplomas comes parties and celebrations. While browsing around Pinterest, we found some pretty creative decor ideas, mostly on a budget. Here are out faves:
How cool is this burlap banner from The Rustic Chic Boutique on Etsy?
We love all the red, black and white details in this decor from Oh Sugar Events
And our favorite is this ribbon and lights ceiling decor from Martha Stewart.
Wishing everyone happy graduation season!
An unabashed lover of Boston, I’m excited to start a blog series that highlights some of my favorite places in this city of strength, character, and some serious ahhhhht
Nine years ago, my good friend and fashionable entrepreneur Alison Barnard decided to take a risk: she would open a clothing store in Boston’s historic North End, a neighborhood known more for it’s cannolis and meatballs than it’s Hudsons and Jimmy Choos. She opened a boutique specializing in jeans, and named it Injeanius (smart cookie, don’t you think?). Not only does she carry the best demin in varying price points, she and her staff are stars at knowing which brand and style will fit your bod in the most flattering way. The success of Injeanius led Alison to open her second boutique called Twilight (pictured above), which specializes in dresses and other sophisticated apparel. These two shops are my go-to’s when I’m in the North End. If I’m lucky, Alison will get off work early and we’ll head over to Carmen in North Square for some killer Sangria and flatbread.
Special treat from Alison! For the remainder of Spring, mention this post and get 15% off your clothing order! (expires Friday, June 20th, 2014)
