Here is a list of some of our Tried & True Lines:
Free People is fresh, flowing, cool and fun. They offer great patterns, textures and colors. Their cuts tend to be slimmer – for the younger or smaller woman, but many of their 2nd layer pieces - jackets, sweaters, layering tops – fit fuller arms and upper bodies too. This line is a magnet for college aged young ladies, but it is also fabulous for the hip, young minded New England woman who likes to mix things up. Great crossover pieces for the woman living the country life who likes to go to town. From the parent company of Urban Outfitters and a sister of Anthropologie, this is a big, ever changing line that is full of surprises. Sized Extra small to large or 0 to 12 or 25-31 in pants.
ISDA is a sleek, classy line that truly fits all bodies. Fabric, fine knits and excellent construction are the trademark of this San Francisco based designer. Pull it on and go – you will look great. An ISDA sweater, shrug or jacket is all an outfit needs to make it standout. One of the best parts of this line is that it keeps classic pieces in the line year after year. You can count on that. Perfect clothes for the New England working woman on the go – great for travel and a more sophisticated and put together look. Sized 0 to 14 or Extra Small to Extra Large – ISDA will fit most everyone.
Christopher Blue is the jean, cord, twill or velvet pant that makes everyone feel good and look good. This is a full cut fashion pant meant for women who like more traditional coverage. For women in New England these pants have the style to transition from work to an evening out as well as being casual enough to wear to the barn. All of their fabrics have stretch in them – they are comfortable, resilient and great looking. These pants are well made and last a long time without showing any wear - something in the blend keeps the pant bright and well fitting even after many washes and wears. Sized 0 to 14, most people go down a size and the truly tiny sometimes find the size 0 a bit large. Once you own one pair, you will want more!
Worn Jeans is a division of the Christopher Blue parent company and is more fashion forward, less expensive and a bit more trendy in its cut and fit. Built with stretch and great fabrics, Worn jeans, twills, corduroys and trousers are fun, form fitting and very flattering! They sit lower on the waist with a wider waistband that is super comfortable. Sized 0 to 14 they are a great grab and go pant. Our most popular style “Lloyd” features back pockets with button down flaps which are surprisingly flattering. Few people own just one pair!
Emu is from down under and in one season it has become a staple in our line. Made almost exclusively from merino wool everything in this line is YUMMY – as soft as cashmere and much more resilient. From diaphanous feather thin scarves and shrugs to chunky cozy cardigans, the look and feel of these Australian goods is amazing. Generously cut, beautifully made and very affordable, these are magic pieces to add to your clothing collection. Emu also makes shearling slippers and boots that are well constructed and super comfy. They were the original makers of UGG which they sold and now they make their own line of better constructed boots and shoes.
MyWalit makes fantastic wallets and handbags. Made in Thailand from super soft leather in amazing colors this little Australian company is a home run! Every wallet, bag and glove is extremely well made and completely guaranteed. Supple, sleek and beautiful to look at, these pieces wear like iron and last for years.
