Moussy has Officially Arrived.

Moussy Denim, the much-anticipated denim line based in Japan, has hit the shelves of Green Envy in Stowe, Vermont! Now Moussy takes center stage alongside our other premium lines we love – Citizens of Humanity, Mother, Frame, Rag & Bone, Hudson, Paige, 3×1, McGuire – and adds an incredibly cool and current vibe to our collection.

Moussy jeans boast an everyday, relaxed look with an on-trend nod to vintage denim. Its fabrication is a soft cotton with a hint of stretch, creating a well-worn fit that feels excellent and retains its shape. Inspired by menswear and traditional Japanese lines, Moussy’s silhouettes are predominantly straight, slim styles with modern and consistent distressing (most styles feature a rip, tear or infamous patchwork).  All signs lead to Moussy as the perfect, go-to, weekend jean!

Making a modest introduction into the US in 2016, Moussy already has a hearty celebrity cult following including Kourtney Kardashian, Chrissy Teigan, Hillary Duff and Sofia Richie. We’re taking hints from these style muses and are excited to add this premium line to our already amazing selection of women’s jeans! SHOP NOW>>

Motivation Monday: Flower Power

Comparison is the thief of joy, they say.  We are constantly comparing ourselves – to our peers, coworkers, celebrities, the sparkling angles captured on social media and even to our former and futures selves. #RealTalk – with the innumerable count of individuals in this world, there will always be someone with more or better. This week, do you. Be you. In the present. Compare yourself to no one, including versions of yourself. Be like the flower – blossom, never mind what the daisy, rose, peony or wildflower boasts beside you. Let their growth only inspire you to confidently lift your head taller.

Bloom

Pssst…florals are in.

Racing Stripes for the Win.

We’re tracking the side stripe trend and it’s in full gear! Add a hint of sport and Team USA spirit with a red, white and black (on blue) stripe by Joe’s Jeans or Hudson. Go edgy with a crisp white stripe on black or grey denim from Mother Denim. Or make a subtle statement with a tonal blue ribbon by Hudson or shadow stripe by 7 For All Mankind.

Stripes are the statement to make this season. Pair your striped denim with a classic sweater or the perfect tee. Or match with another blossoming trend this season – florals! We love the Awilda floral silk blouse with a pop of colorful stripe.

denim jackets

Be prepared for unpredictable early summer temps with a denim jacket.  Like your favorite pair of jeans, a denim jacket will go with anything.  We love ours with white anything; jeans, dresses, shorts, it’s hard to go wrong.  Vermont is expecting a cooler week ahead, perfect weather for a jean jacket.

You can also wear a denim jacket with jeans, but make sure the colors are different, try a  dark bottom with a light denim jacket, white tee and these rag & bone sneakers .

For a fresh update on traditional denim, try this free people twill jacket, the color is a great neutral and the slightly cropped shape will work over dresses or with white jeans (if you’ve been reading this blog, you know we love white jeans!)

rag & bone

We are excited to be Stowe’s exclusive retailer of rag & bone.  Their chic, minimal style includes denim, t shirts and this perfect tank dress.  We carry skinniescapris and this perfect fitting boyfriend.  As well as teesshorts and shoes!  Too many to link here, you have to come in to see our selection.

In the designers own words: “With a downtown sensibility, signature clean silhouettes and an inherent integrity – each piece is impeccably crafted from the finest materials available and approached from a form and function design standpoint – rag & bone continuously redefines urban style.”  Mountain town meets urban style, perfect!

 

 

denim shorts

Jean shorts are having a moment, and no one wears them better than Jennifer Aniston.  Look chic and casual this summer, wear yours with a loose camo tee from Monrow, flat sandals (on sale!) and a pair of rose gold aviators.

Check out these denim shorts, all available at Green Envy:  Joe’s jeanscitizensframe and this pair from dl1961.  Take your shorts to dinner with this Joie top and a pearl and leather necklace from in2design.

perfect pair of jeans

Or rather, the search for the perfect pair of jeans.  I’m always searching for that perfect pair.  Maybe that’s why my closet has a few too many pairs folded on my shelves! 🙂  You know what I mean right?  The one that will fit perfectly, go with everything and be right for any occasion.  But the true sense of a perfect pair is how it makes me feel.  You reach for them when you’re in a rush, or don’t know what else to wear.  They just work and you wear them for days at a time.  I know there are many other things more important in this world than jeans, but some days we all need a little boost.

With so many styles these days how do we choose?  One of the most universally flattering styles is the straight leg, medium denim wash, not too faded.  Length is up to you, but I prefer just above my ankle, better to show off spring booties, sandals or sneakers.  Or you could try the skinny boyfriend, an easy, wearable update to the  classic baggy boyfriend cut.

Here are a few options from our denim wall:  goldsignframe7 for all mankind.
