Made from men’s shirting fabric, THE DRESS has a bit of a masculine vibe but also exudes femininity!  April also has created these chunky leather bracelets.  They come in a variety of different colors, are easy to style, and add a bold punch of color.  You know we love a statement piece!ap-spring-4

BYOJ: Bring Your Own Jeans! MARZdenim Trunk Show

MARZdenim Trunk Show

Saturday, August 27th 12 pm – 5 pm

Marion Zaniello, creator of MARZdenim will be in store to custom alter and/or paint dip your favorite pair of jeans.  Bring your own 100% cotton denim (leave those jeggings at home).  Or, you can choose from Marion’s already completed selection and from Hitchcock Madrona’s vintage 501 collection.

Marion Zaniello, owner of MARZdenim serendipitously came into Hitchcock Madrona.  I exclaimed “WHERE DID YOU GET THOSE JEANS?”.  She replied, “I made them” and “I can make you a pair.”  YES!  Where do I sign, who do I make the check out to, and where do I go?!?  The more I got to know Marion the more I discovered her to be both an amazing person and designer .  She even has the resume (Dana Buchman and Nanette Lepore) to boot!  Marion recently returned to Seattle, her hometown, with husband and three kids in tow.  Nordstrom Product Group was next, as both a designer and design director for 4 years.

In early 2016 MARZdenim was born while Marion and her family were vacationing in Mexico. She was inspired by the white painted trunks of the palm trees all around the resort.  When she returned home she had the brilliant idea to mimic the look on an old pair of jeans.  After flatteringly altering the fit (which she did to mine and I LOVE), she dipped the hems in old house paint.  The rest is history!

Hope to see everyone at the event on Saturday!  Bring your jeans, and your friends, and your friends’ jeans!

So excited for this trunk show!  This is an event unlike any other we have ever had.  The Oula Company is primarily a clothing company.  Erika, the company’s founder, combines heritage African textiles with modern design.  A perfect combo if you ask me!  Although we are know for our accessories, we couldn’t resist offering these playful, easy clothing pieces via a trunk show.  I love how wearable they are, perfect for summer. I can’t wait to see what I come away with (I’ve set a three garment limit for myself!).

Love this piece, it can be worn as a dress or shirt. (Ladies, it has pockets!)

The bold, graphic print looks amazing with these color-blocked necklaces.  I’m wearing all of them, of course, but one or two would look just as cool.

Check out all the amazing Oula clothes, bags, and accessories Saturday, June 11 Noon-5. Champagne and appetizers will be served.

Trunk Show: Orly Genger by Jaclyn Mayer

Posted by & filed under Artist Profiles, Event, Just In, Obsession, Trunk Show, Uncategorized.

There is nothing we love more than ingenuity in design, and our latest featured brand Orly Genger by Jaclyn Mayer fills that category to a tee. The Brainchaild of 1/2 of the line’s namesake, Jaclyn Mayer, OGJM is playful, sophisticated, and like nothing we’ve seen before. Jaclyn was already designing under her own name when she began using sraps from artist, Orly Genger’s beautiful woven sculptures. From there, the line took off with exciting collaborations with VPL and Mara Hoffman. See a few of Jaclyn’s designs from the Fall/Winter ’15 collection below, and in store along with other incredible sample and collaboration pieces through this Saturday, October 10th.24

 

Muted tones and sophisticated pops of color wind their way throughout this season’s collections. As with most seasons in the OGJM Archives, the color combinations expertly walk the line between playful and luxe.

The Roxbury Necklace is a real standout in the collection. Architectural and modern, in classically rich tones the Roxbury is a light as air statement necklace for any outfit.

Event: Xenia Mara Trunk Show

When we hear Xenia Mara, one word comes to mind: Chains! And lots of them. Xenia’s designs have been an ever present fixture on our showroom floor for the past 8 years, steadily flying of the shelves and into the wardrobe’s of our lovely clients. Ranging from chunky to delicate, subtle bling to heavy metal, Xenia’s designs still have us head-over-heels in love; especially for a night out on the town.

Bridal Week: Elope to Las Vegas!

Posted by & filed under Bridal Week, Dannijo, Inspiration, Kelly Christy, Lulu Frost, Mariella Pilato, Obsession, wedding season.

For our last installment of bridal week we are going on a little impromptu trip…to Vegas! Your wedding your prerogative, right?? We wanted to redefine what it means to be a modern bride by pairing a traditional veil with our favorite vintage Levis. Whether you just can’t stand to wait any longer, or jeans and a white tee are the fanciest clothes you could ever want or need, Vegas isn’t for the faint of heart or those in doubt.

There is something so fun about the irreverence of a Vegas wedding.  Las Vegas must be the only place in the US you can get married in a drive thru (or, by an Elvis impersonator).  Traditions come in all shapes and sizes!

It’s your day! Who cares if the family is a little surprised?

Silver Spear Earrings by Mariella Pilato

Go for the dramatic earrings and necklace.  More is more in the The Graceland Wedding Chapel and we say go full bling.

dannijo-necklaceThis must be my favorite necklace in the store right now. I am obsessed with it’s stylistic ambiguity. There is something very evocative of 1970’s Elvis within the color combination! Is it just me? Bonus! Bridal jewelry that can double as your something blue. Lasting, gorgeous, and a funky nod to tradition. Viva Las Vagas!

XOXO,

Erica

Bridal Week: Rethinking the Veil

Posted by & filed under Bridal Week, Inspiration, Kelly Christy, Lulu Frost, wedding season.

     Throughout the centuries, hair ornamentation has been a symbol of social status or ritual significance. Wedding veils are no exception, but this form of adornment has certainly seen many iterations as popular wedding fashions change and grow.

     Artists like Jennifer Behr and Kelly Christy, are able to create modern examples of classically rooted, and seriously stunning headgear. Whether you’re a vintage bride, a minimalist bride, an edgy, bold bride or something entirely different there are ways to tailor your hair accessories in a way that feels uniquely you. Not only that, but Mother of the Bride fascinators, and jeweled headpieces for your bridesmaids are a wonderful thank you, and a special nod to the ones you love for their support on your day.

A perfect, vintage inspired fresh take on a veil. Remove the Veil and just wear the headband for the reception. Jennifer Behr does a wonderful job, creating hadpieces that are flawless in composition and can be tailored to so many different styles. Bridal and beyond.

Whether you’re a cool toned winter bride, or a whimsical spring bride there’s nothing like a plume of milk white feathers to tie together your whole look.

For the edgy minimalist, or the quirky delicate bride this sleek headband adds an elegant hint of sparkle. Paired with a pearl and rhinestone pair of stunners from Tom Binns (the Godfather of fashion jewelry for those who don’t know-take note) and you’re guaranteed to be turning heads. No matter how bold you go, or how simple you keep it risk and restraint always yield great results. What’s most important in my mind? Feeling like the most radiant version of yourself on that day. We just want to help you shine.

 

XOXO,

Millie
