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.

BFA_17877_2236807

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>>

Wear your sunscreen.

Dear beach babes, sunscreen is in style! I know we are all itching to get out into those warm rays as soon as possible, but don’t underestimate the importance of lathering on a broad-spectrum sunscreen before you hit the sand! UVA and UVB rays are commonly known to cause serious surface burns, lead to certain skin cancers (especially in those with family history!), cause eye injuries including cataracts, and of course, quicken the skin’s aging process. So while we all want that gorgeous summer glow…we challenge you to tan slow!

Below are some of our must-have summer products!

Retonoic Nutrient Face Oil. Healing and soothing…after a bit too much sun.

The Buttondown. Effortless, versatile and perfect for shading shoulders. 

CHARLI-PERTH

Beach Tote. Don’t leave home without it. This large tote is beach-ready in style and function.

Staple Summer Wardrobe

Breezy fabrics, feminine details, light tones, effortless looks = summer style. We’ve curated a capsule wardrobe for summer featuring new arrivals this season, with looks that you can mix and match and wear again and again from casual to cocktail. Sport these staples all summer long, varying the look with with novelty pieces already in your closet.

TOPS: The right top can set the tone of any look!

Blog-SummerCapsule-Tops

BOTTOMS. Make sure you have a few perfectly-fitting, lightweight shorts and pants for the hot summer months. 

Blog-SummerCapsule-Bottoms copy

DRESSES. We live in them in the summer.  Who doesn’t love their easy, breezy and oh-so-comfortable appeal? Having the perfect dress for every occasion is completely doable with a combination of staple-styles mixed and matched with fun accessories and sassy shoes. 

Blog-SummerCapsule-Dresses

SHOES. The easiest season for footwear is summer. Stock your shelves with casual slides, transitional heels and a party-pair for happy summer feet. 

Blog-SummerCapsule-Shoes

ACCESSORIES. Add these key accessories to your summer capsule….Sunglasses are a high-impact (and practical!) must-have; a lightweight cashmere scarf is perfect for cooler nights and travel; a straw carryall is ultra on-trend and ideal for beach days; and a statement leather belt adds major interest to any outfit! 

Blog-SummerCapsule-Accessories

TIPS to Creating a Capsule Wardrobe! Tailoring a foundational seasonal wardrobe to your lifestyle is key to getting the most out of each piece. Our suggestions may not fit your exact routine or style, so go ahead and mix it up! 

  • Know your style. Sporty, boho, minimalist, career, colorful, casual. Make sure each piece in your capsule represents who you are and what you like to wear. 
  • Know what you reach for. Don’t underestimate the items that make you truly comfortable 24/7. If you know you’ll never wear a silk tank, substitute in another classic tee or breezy buttondown! 
  • Know your season/weather. ie, if you live in Arizona, maybe forget the long denim for summer and add an extra semi-casual date-night dress.
  • Know your activity level. Hitting the gym, all day, everyday? Add in your favorite essential workout tanks, leggings or running shorts and the best running or hiking shoe. Jet-setting from meeting to meeting? Add black slacks or a timeless pencil dress or skirt into your summer wardrobe. 

Almost summer! Happy shopping!

Suck it up. Drink your water.

Everyone feels the effects of Monday. One way to fight it, drink more water! 💦 Drinking the proper amount of aqua (starting with a nice cool 16oz glass each morning) helps boost energy, fight mood swings, banish bloating (hallelujah!) and flush out toxins inside and out (healthy kidney, healthy skin!). We’ll drink to that!

Wellness-DrinkWater

Looking to heighten a specific benefit of drinking water? Add in some nutrients! Infusing your water with a combination of fruits and vegetables will punch up the powerhouse effects of staying hydrated.

Start today! A healthy habit takes 21 days to become a routine, and there’s no better day to start. Do you need a vessel of motivation? We have a plethora of gorgeous, stylish S’well bottles, perfect for making your water challenge chic and cool.

S’well // Chic Hydration + The Perfect Gift!

In an era of innovative fitness trends, changing diet fads and a constant influx of athleisure fashion, there’s one variable that stays constant throughout – HYDRATION. Whether you are into yoga, running, cycling, crossfit, lounging, teaching or mom-ing, S’well’s stainless steel bottles are perfect for keeping you hydrated and on-trend. These vessels are seen on the desks of women at Vogue and in the hands of celebrity career moms such as Jennifer Garner. Plus, on the heels of Earth Day, we think that this reusable, super-chic bottle is worthy of a highlight!

S’well was founded with a call-to-action to lower the number of plastic bottles on earth. This woman-owned company (one of the fastest growing in the country! A $100 million-dollar brand) thought if she could make a water bottle as chic as it is functional, more people would be inspired to put down the plastic, disposable bottles and use S’well. Eight years later, and S’well is making big dents in the number of bottles NOT reduced to waterways and landfills. 

Besides boasting eco-friendly goals and sleek style, S’well can brag about these patented functionalities: 

  • Keeps cold beverages cold for 24 hours
  • Keeps hot beverages hot for 12 hours
  • Boasts a triple-wall Therma-S’well exterior that holds in condensation
  • Constructed from BPA-FREE 18/8 Stainless Steel

Swell_SS18_Social8FullSizeRender (5).jpg^ The Liberty London floral fabrics are iconic. Bright, beautiful and intricately rendered. We think the Liberty S’well collaboration is perfect for Spring…and Mother’s Day! Fill with water, lemonade or your favorite protein shake…and head to the beach, lake or studio.

FullSizeRender (5)^ The Roamer took a giant step forward in the S’well brand. This large growler-sized bottle is perfect for road trips, day trips, beach days (don’t forget the perfect beach bag!) and all-day sporting events with the littles. With an impressive 40 oz capacity, the Roamer still shares the same functionality as it’s classic S’well siblings. Keep yourself ultra-hydrated or go ahead and share your beverage with others! 

swellsocial_angelfoodeeab590f03ff8051d3b6419ef552357fOne of our favorite summer-time uses of S’well? COCKTAILS, of course! The 25 oz bottles hold an entire bottle of wine. We suggest you test that out, or try these staff drink picks:

MG_3547-copy55caab25695cfa6ff4c0b60da625f923.png^ Put your craft beer, prosecco or mixed drink into a larger S’well or Roamer and bring some S’well Tumblers along for sharing! 

Outfit your outings and accessorize your outfits with S’well!  Shop these NEW styles of S’well and so many more at our boutique in Stowe, Vermont. 

Happy hydrating.

Let’s adDRESS party season…

Proms, graduations, weddings, bridal showers…the dress code is: the dress.  In an era where anything goes and fashion is art, there has never been a better time to flaunt your unique style. And finding the perfect dress for you should be part of the fun experience, especially if you go into your search with a few things in mind. Let us help you find YOUR dress for party season! 

The Musts of Dress Shopping (from wedding-guest to weekend brunch):

  1. Feel comfortable. Comfort is key to feeling at ease at a formal occasion.  In this anything-goes style shift, discomfort in the name of fashion or fitting-in is unnecessary!
  2. Feel confident and beautiful. If a dress doesn’t make you feel either of these things, then it’s not your dress. Keep shopping! Be-YOU-tiful.

Finding the Right Fit.  Knowing and embracing the best way to showcase your unique proportions and assets is important when looking for the right dress for your event. Some professional suggestions for your shape (pictures/examples below):

  1. Rectangle/Straight. Equal width proportions from hip to shoulder. Choose a-line, or sheath. Draping and gathering at the waist adds curvature and interesting low necklines add dimension to your stature. Avoid a simple shift. 
  2. Hourglass. Equal width hips/shoulders, narrow waist. Curvy. Wrap-style dresses flatter your small waistline. A fit-and-flare shape will show off your tiny waist and feminine hips. Fitted dresses will accentuate your curves and elongate your stature. Don’t embellish too heavily at the bust or hip with draping, gathering, beading or high necklines. 
  3. Pear/Triangle. Narrow at the shoulders, gradually widening through the hips. Look for detail on the top! Cowl draping, cap sleeves, boatneck, sweetheart neckline, off-shoulder sleeves. A bottom that fits through the hips and flares mid-thigh will show off your curves and even your proportions. 
  4. Apple/Inverted Triangle. Smaller through the hips, widening through bust/shoulder. Add volume to the bottom and define your waist. Long, flowing maxi dresses can add proportion to a smaller bottom half. An a-line or fit-and-flare will add dimension to the waist and hips and balance out a wider shoulder. Avoid bold prints or embellishment at the top/neckline. 

Other considerations:

  1. Budget. Enough said. 
  2. Style, of course. One of my favorite parts of dress shopping is finding a dress that really exudes my personal style. Traveling and dressing up? Look into the local vibe. You may find that you want to lean towards your destination’s more bold look (Think Cancun) or a more buttoned-up look. (Think Connecticut)
  3. Matching your date…or not matching your date! 
  4. Weather. Consider the venue, air conditioning, weather changes, time of day, etc. Invest in a cashmere ruana to keep bare shoulders warm when the sun goes down and dancing stops. Don’t forget a pair of metallic flats for walking outside or tired party feet! 
  5. Color. Choose a color (or print!) that works for your skin tone, style, and event.
  6. Accessories. Maybe your dress is understated elegant but you wear killer shoes! Find a classic and elegant dress that will beautifully show-off your coveted accessory…and easily transition to another event! 
  7. Undergarments. Dare we mention unmentionables? From knee-to-shoulder shape-wear to the slimmest of seam-free intimates, you don’t want to notice what you’re wearing under your dress, so it’s a consideration not to go unnoticed. 
  8. Dress code. Black tie? Cocktail? Graduation little-white-dress? Keep in mind any strict guidelines for your event. 

Trends we are seeing for the 2018 party season:

Light hues. From the popular blush pink to crisp white. The little white dress is perfect for graduation, Sunday brunch or  a bridal shower!
