The new colors are a mix of deep plums, browns, greys, blues and if you need a little color to brighten the gloomy days sage green.

Also new dresses by Mae. Her versatile line of dresses has the right blend of style and ease. Dress them up or keep it casual by changing up your accessories.

Artwalk time is here again!

Wow, this summer is flying by!

This week we have double artwalk fun featuring Alisha Louise coming up from Portland with her gorgeous line of enamel jewelry. We are especially excited about her new Modern Crest series. Come check out her new line and see the rest of her collection.

Also featured Mary Louise pendants. Her jewelry has vintage inspired settings filled with reproductions of her fine art paintings. Sealife, animals and birds are her usual themes. We love the resin coating that gives it a glossy finish. Both designers are featured Thursday August 12th from 5-8 for Capitol Hill Artwalk and then again Saturday August 14th for Ballard Artwalk from 6-9pm. For the Capitol Hill Artwalk we show intricate pen and ink drawings by Brigida Swanson and for Ballard Artwalk we show whimsical paintings by Mary Silva (the artist behind Mary Louise Jewelry.)

Also, we are running a 20%off sale on marked down items through August. Been eyeballing that summer dress but need a deal, say no more!
Fall arrivals will start trickling in starting this week, so come see what's new!
Want a preview of our faves for Fall? Mark you calendar. Sunday September 12th we will showcase several local designers during our Fall Fashion Vignettes during the Melrose Block Party. More info coming soon!

Stop by and say hi!
