I love stumbling on new-to-me shops full of beautiful finds with a very specific aesthetic or point of view so I thought I’d share a few in case you’d like them too! Plus you might have some Christmas money still burning a hole in your pocket. And I’m nothing if not a shopping enabler. 😉
If you love preppy tailored style in the same vein as J.Crew, then Ann Mashburn is your girl. Think of it as your go-to when you’ve graduated from the Crew – a higher price point but it’s a decidedly classic feminine outlook with a twist. These are pieces to collect for a lifetime and the antithesis to throwaway fashion. Items include the eponymous line of separates, cashmere, shoes and button-downs, as well as picks from other brands like Jil Sander NAVY, Rebecca de Ravenel and others. Tip: if you love Ann’s style, your guy might also appreciate the men’s line Sid Mashburn.
Former editor-in-chief of Domino Michelle Adams is at the helm of the Maryn, a brand new lifestyle e-tailer with a sea-loving point of view. Nautical without being cheesy or overly theme-y, everything has a subtly chic sense of luxury and style. Inspired by Michelle’s favorite seaside towns from coast to coast, I couldn’t pin the pillows and textiles fast enough.
Stripe shirt lovers rejoice. Described as “what Audrey Hepburn would wear to the grocery store,” Kule’s line of men’s and women’s stripe shirts draws inspiration from all those lovely French style icons. With a variety of different fits, you’ll discover a wide selection of colorways and sleeve lengths to suit your particular style needs. And I’m dying over the great detail of the little red and blue stripe on the hem.
