Shop Talk: November 2010
Monthly shopping news from Fashion Editor Jill Manoff.
Known for sheepskin boots, lambskin jackets, merino wool clothing and more for him, her and baby, the EMU Australia collection is venturing from the outback to Valerie Mills Fine Apparel. Shop the line’s cozy-cute winter weather essentials via an in-store trunk show November 5 and 6 (Clayton, 314.727.4545).
Defined by bright colors, unique prints and intricate patterns, many have come to love the sophisticated Tracy Reese ready-to-wear collection, the bohemian plenty by Tracy Reese line and the ever-flirty frock! by Tracy Reese. If you’re a fan of any of the design dynamo’s brands, you’ll likely want to shop Cha Boutique—where equally fab Tracy Reese footwear is now available (Ladue, 314.993.8080).
Too rugged to be classified as notoriously questionable “man jewelry,” must-have leather cuffs with optional hardware have invaded Moris Fashions. Shop the latest brown, black and heavy-metal styles by Will Leather Goods and John Varvatos, and—while you’re at it—rethink any extras that include a gold chain (Central West End, 314.361.6800).
ALWAYS A BRIDESMAID…
If you’ve decided to make a statement with your next bridesmaid dress à la Charlotte York in “Sex and the City” (“This time, people are going to look at ME!”), you’re in luck. Catering to the bridal party rather than the betrothed couple, Bella Bridesmaid is a hit in cities across the US—and has recently opened in Town & Country. Shop the new boutique for bridesmaid gowns, frocks for the flower girl or a variety of looks for mother of the bride (314.205.1191).
Cozy up with the EMU Australia collection at Valerie Mills.
