We love graphic prints for this season, but we mostly find them on tops and sweaters. Well, that just makes us all the more excited to announce our tights for this fall from Hansel from Basel! We’ve got something for every attitude…
Funky, earthy, attention-grabbing patterns and colors are definitely a trend to watch this season, and these tights are perfectly on trend. I think these would go perfectly with Bobo Choses’ Raindrop Twill Skirt and a fun tee (there are so many to choose from this season!).
Nautical ivories and blues are always in style so we love to see what our designers do with them! These in particular make a super fun, super easy addition to any wardrobe. Pair them with a favorite dress or skirt and any outfit instantly becomes a little cooler.
These great patterns in cozy neutrals are easy to pair with anything. Black and white dominate the fashion game this fall with Indikidual’s uber-cool domino patterns and Nununu’s classic black and white splatter prints, and these tights are perfectly coordinated to any outfit! These will be in-store by September!
We’ve been getting our fall goods in the store, dressing the table, dressing the ugly dolls, bidding adieu to swimsuits and saying hello to sweaters! Here is a quick look at Threads featuring the first of Fall 2013.
We just got back from a sojourn from the city–Spring break in Paris and the Loire valley. As I lived in Paris years ago, it’s held a big place in my heart and I was so excited to take the girls there. It’s a hoot to bring city kids to the country – There was a distinct topnote of Paris Hilton/Nicole Ritchie in their reaction to the natural creatures that live in the country and the unfamiliar environs.
Spilling out of the car, a Citroen Picasso that “fits 7″ (but Enterprise squished their face at us when they saw that we were not just 7 but were 7 with luggage! (mais non!)), the girls ran as fast as they could across the lawn toward two horses who were on the property. Out of the city they’re always blown away by the space and freedom.
Our “gite” was located outside of Tours – something I found on mrandmrssmith.com – which has some great properties especially nice for larger groups, and I highly recommend. It was a old French country house on a property with stables and a gorgeously dilapidated chateau that would be stunning renovated but was still beautiful. You could just imagine it in its heyday.
We made a fire every night in the fireplace and every day set off to the many chateaus in the area–gorgeous. We even went on a hike around the 500 acre property, wearing tall boots to protect against the mud, led by the property caretaker, an outdoorsman, and his dog “Escape” (who the girls fell in love with!)
On one of the days we took advantage of the property and snapped some pics with the latest collections.
–>The markets in France are chalk-full of fresh fruits and vegetables. I thought this Bobo Choses dress with leggings was adorable and really popped off the outbuilding behind. But then, again, she was drawn to the horses. Every girl wants a pony!
–>The geometric tee by Munster Kids with strong pastel colors felt right next to the chopped wood in every shape next to her. Although she looks like a homesteader staring off with deep thoughts of work and life, she’s really looking yonder at her favorite horse!
–>Lastly, both girls put on their furniture-tassel dresses by Mini Rodini - one in pink and one in green (which was topped with a opaque raincoat by A for Apple) and played at the once stately doorstep of the old, unkept chateau (and then all over the lawn, under the 200 year old trees, chased enthusiastically by Escape, the dog. The tassels conjured up the classical French furniture and tapestries that likely once dressed this grand estate.
It's no big secret that I love cats!
