On our trip to Paris, we visited Merci, a three-story concept store in Marais that donates all profits to charity (helping underprivileged women and children). They sell clothing, furniture, housewares, stationery, gardening supplies, perfume and other toiletries. In addition, they have a charming little bookstore and three cafes. It really was a (high-brow) one stop shop!
How cute are these little summer dresses? I wish Boden made them in adult sizes!
All Mini Boden (and Johnnie B) items are 25 percent off, plus free shipping, for the next 24 hours (ends today at midnight)! No offer code needed.
And those gorgeous broderie dresses above can be found here for $42 (on sale from $56!).
Loved Boden’s April Fools prank yesterday! If you didn’t catch it, meet their latest item: the Men’s Marylebone Man-Skirt. I only wish this were real. Sigh.
I’m giving some serious thought about what shoes I should take on our upcoming trip to the U.K.
I was in complete spring mode, until I realized that the weather actually could still be wet and cold – particularly considering that they are getting fresh snow falling this week.
Gap’s London postcard T is adorable. Now on sale for $24.99. Gap also offers postcard T’s for Milan, New York City and San Francisco.
Have you ever wondered what it takes to dress Queen Elizabeth? Here are just a few details I discovered via this weekend’s very informative Wall Street Journal article:
1. The Queen prefers a two-inch heel.
2. Striking colors are a must.
3. Umbrellas are a necessity (she likes transparent ones the most).
4. She has quite a collection of hats.
More details like these can be found in the book, “Dressing the Queen: The Jubilee Wardrobe” written by royal couturier Angela Kelly, who manages the queen’s public and private wardrobe.
Mini Boden‘s spring collection is here! The children’s line features sweet sherbet colors, lots of stripes, polka dots, florals and the usual Boden quality.
Nordstrom is currently taking pre-orders on items from the spring collection. The department store normally sells only a small collection from what’s available on the Mini Boden website, but this spring it seems that there’s much more available via Nordstrom. Check out some of the new pieces in the line!
OMG. Baby Gap has released its Peter Rabbit line, replete with soft chambray, intarsia knits and onesies galore! Awwwww.
The Limited has unveiled their new arrivals and it’s a lot of British mod styling and red, white and blue. Graphics and patterns galore! Love it.
The U.S. may have created the slanket and the snuggie, but the U.K. is doing one better – they’ve introduced the adult onesie and it is taking off like wildfire! Pink, Miley Cyrus and even the Mayor of London Boris Johnson has one.
Every major high street story in the U.K. is carrying them and ASDA grocery store reported selling 140,000 of them in the last week alone. Check out ASDA’s Christmas video with grown adults romping around in some amazing animal printed ones:
(OnePiece sells to the U.S., if you’re looking for one stateside.)
