Nature -- and city officials -- are telling us to stay close to home this weekend and enjoy this special snow show. We're following that advice, as you can see! Look for us back in the shop on Monday, and, meantime, make some snowcones, build an igloo, enjoy the winter wonderland, and, when you come inside, listen to some nice snowy tunes by the fire. Click Spotify list at the bottom of this post to hear our favorites.

Downton, oh Downton
It's January. Cold, dreary, undemanding January. A perfect month for blatant nesting and binge watching the best period drama ever. The scenery! The history! The amazing Maggie Smith and her oh-so-quotable zingers! But, most of all, the glorious fashion. The period is now 1925, our very favorite fashion era, echoed in the collection in the shop at this very moment. Art meets history meets life. We'll be savoring every moment of this bittersweet last season.
