Style // Dress Karma

When you find the right dress, it's meant to be. I tried on this Karlie dress at a Thread x Pretty Pony Boutique event a year ago and loved it, but wasn't really sure I had an occasion to wear it. Flash forward to the Dressing Downton event at the Taft Museum, where Pretty Pony had a booth. Owner Cassie Kathman recognized me and remembered the dress, noting that she still had one in my...

For New Lingerie Shop Swoon, the Name Says it All

I've mentioned my devotion to cotton underwear and no-wire bras before, but I never expected there to be a lingerie store centered around all of the above just blocks from me and my credit cards. Swoon, which opened on Vine Street this month, is a feminine (and feminist) haven of warm peach tones and comfy underthings for women who mix the fanciful with the practical. The boutique carries bras and underwear from eco-friendly lines like baserange...

Cut + Sewn’s New Showroom Helps Indie Designers Show Off Their Goods

[caption id="attachment_5911" align="aligncenter" width="700"] SHOWROOM's small boutique space in Northside[/caption] Guys, I think the indie fashion revolution has (finally) made it to the Queen City! While lifestyle stores like MiCA 12/v, Continuum, and Sloane have always carried goods from local makers, Cut + Sewn's new retail showroom--appropriately called SHOWROOM--is solely focused on promoting the work of independent designers and artists. The boutique serves as a combination gallery/atelier for the folks who work in Cut + Sewn's studio, and...

Season 3 starts September 21st, so sign up for the mailing list to stay ahead of the game. I really love talking to all these amazing folks about what makes them...


Shop Around // Ossie Boutique

[caption id="attachment_5889" align="aligncenter" width="700"] Ossie Boutique co-owner Meredith Borchers[/caption] The weather was on the verge of a downpour the first time I stepped into months-old Hyde Park shop Ossie Boutique. I'd been suspiciously eyeing the navy blue clouds overhead when an aMAHzing gold metallic vest called out to me as I passed by the window. I knew I had to find out more. The shop, co-owned by Meredith Borchers and her mother, gets its name from fashion...


Current Obsession // Sunglass Fiend

For some reason (I dunno, SUMMER?) my passing interest in lunettes de soleil has taken a turn and blossomed into a full-blown problem. I started the season with two pairs, and have somehow, against my will and better judgment, accumulated all of the above, including a fancy schmancy prescription transitions pair. I figure while I’m at it and the sun is still shining, why not go whole hog and create a full-on sunglass wardrobe? SHOP IT! //...
