Hike It Up.


Mini or stretch skirts are one of the trends for this spring and summer. Pairing the skirt with loose or tucked-in tops, statement shoes and jewelry completes the look.

The days are getting longer and hotter, so it’s the perfect excuse to show some more skin.


Designer Profile: Seneca Rising


Combining delicate thrift store finds with her older brother’s hand-me-downs is where designer Andi Ballard started. Over time it evolved into a girly-tomboy aesthetic that is the backbone of the collection.

Named after the street in Virginia Andi grew up on, Seneca Rising is overflowing with nostalgic details that characterize her history and a no-fuss sensibility she wears today.

Got Purple On My Mind.


When it comes to a year round color, purple is one to keep. The color of royalty looks fabulous when it has to share the spot light with grey, black, white, or even brown.

So whether you choose bright grape, earthy plum, lavender or eggplant, there’s definitely a hue for you.

Taste Like Candy To Me.

Travel season will be here soon and it’s time to update the passport cases. The jelly bean colors we have look cute being pulled out of your handbags or carry-ons. Another reason to bring attention to yourself!

Please note: These cases are not edible.

Spring’s Showoffs


The sun is here, trees are green, people are out and about and the city is coming alive again! What will you be wearing??? There is no way the clothes from fall should be on your back this weekend.
Look the part of a woman enjoying the spring weather with beautiful silk printed pieces and pastel colored accessories.
Make a statement with your attire and let your fellow New Yorkers know you’ve emerged from hibernation.

Short and Sweet.

This spring, there is a new look to the floral prints.  Made to look like watercolor paintings, the floral trend this spring is easy on the eyes. To avoid the oh, so cute look, the dresses have been shortened.  You’re an adult, and mom can’t tell you about your hemlines, so show some skin!

Designer Profile: Mink Pink


The story began in early 2005 when MINKPINK hit the Australian fashion scene. The team behind this brand took influences and inspiration from high-end designers, street styling and vintage pieces, working hard to produce fresh and flattering garments that are fashionable, affordable and full of the signature MINKPINK personality.
Still going strong four years later, MINKPINK, fueled by word-of-mouth and reputation, is stocked in over 400 boutiques throughout Australia and New Zealand, and recently the brand has branched out internationally to Japan, Canada and America, of course.

Each piece is designed with the everyday fashionista in mind – aiming to be fit friendly and just plain fabulous!
