birds of a feather…

When we were ordering for fall we fell in love with this little feather skirt!  It’s quirky…it’s fun…it is just plain fabulous.


 And then we realized, our love of a feather skirt puts us in some pretty good company!

We love the Current/Elliott cargos and…clearly we aren’t alone!

Leighton Meester is a happy girl…probably because she is sporting those cute little skinny cargos!

Sheryl Crow looks a little more serious in her cargos…but then again, a morning coffee is a serious business!

We have a few more pairs of the C/E cargos on the floor…but they are moving fast!

Open Friday 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

a meeting of the minds.

We love it when super talented people come together to create something super special!  And we are over the moon with this new collaboration from DL1961 (you know we love them!) and Bag Snob (Dallas bloggers and fashion lovers)!  They have joined forces for some fall denim looks that are amazing!  And best of all,  we will have several of these great styles in the store when we open!

 If you are not already familiar with the DL brand…you are missing out!  They make some of our most favorite jeans ever.  Here are a few words from the DL1961 website explaining what makes them so special and why everyone seems to just fall in love with them…

“In September 2008, DL1961 Premium Denim launched in New York City with a mission to create ‘the perfect fitting jeans’. The line is crafted exclusively with XFIT LYCRA® denim- a fabric that not only molds to each individual’s body but boasts 90% shape retention. XFIT LYCRA® means the end to jeans that sag, bag and lose their shape.

Because of this unparalleled fit concept, DL1961 Premium Denim’s popularity has been on an upward trajectory since it’s inception. Aside from being featured in every major publication, DL1961 jeans have become a staple in the closets of celebrities and trendsetters alike.”

good-bye to summer…

Hard to believe but summer vacation is quickly coming to an end.  It has been a whirlwind of  – travel, sunshine, family time, relaxing…and now it is time to kiss the kids,  send them off to school and  for us to get busy…

Boxes full of gorgeous fall clothes, accessories and jewelry are arriving daily.  And while the space is under construction, it won’t be long before we can open back up and to show you all the greatness we have found.  Each time we think we have found the best of the best – but this time…

it is really really going to be good!

It is now less than 3 weeks until our grand re-opening on Thursday, September 6...We can’t wait to see you there!

feeling a little blue?

Kate Middleton certainly isn’t!  And doesn’t she look darling in her bright blue jeans?

If you like this look (who wouldn’t??  Kate just happens to be gorgeous and would look like a million bucks in a paper sack!) we have some darling bright blue DL1961 jeans in stock!  Even though we are closed…if you are in need of a little bright blue jean we wouldn’t want to deprive you!  If you live in Fort Worth drop us a line at and we will let you know what sizes we have and work out getting them to you.  And in fact, if you live outside the Fort we will happily ship to you!

And if you are wondering how to take these beauties into fall…here’s a little inspiration (from pinterest).

In fact, we even have a darling little 3/4 black jacket very similar to the one above…and it is on sale!

dream job…

Blogging + art + graphics + typography + femininity + travel + working from home.

image from here

And so we are creating our dream jobs…as “full time/part time” store owners!

We have had so much fun and are so thrilled with all the support and wonderful words of encouragement that we are going to stick around.   No more popping in and out – we are going to stick around this time but with limited hours (open Mondays, Wednesdays, & Fridays)…thus the term:  FULL TIME/PART TIME!

So here’s the full scoop:  We have signed a longer lease in our current space (6333 Camp Bowie #224) but are closed for summer and some light remodeling.  We will re-open around Labor Day (stay tuned for exact dates) in our fresh space with fabulous clothes and accessories and lots of great ideas!

We can’t wait to show you all the great pieces we have ordered to fall.  As hard as it is to believe it won’t be long…summer will be gone before we know it so for now…keep sipping those summery drinks, enjoying the lazy pace of summer and having fun!

A special guest…

 One of us lucky girls is jetting off to Paris for the week!   The other one, not so lucky, is still in beautiful Fort Worth but has a little one that has her last day of school this Tuesday!  So…between TCU finals (therefore no babysitters available) and an early summer vacation,  we have had to call in some help! We are so thankful to have a dear friend in Kori Green.  If you know her then you know exactly what we are talking about, but in the event you do not – she is so much more to us than just a fabulous jewelry designer…in fact, she is such a good friend she has offered to work the store for us this Wednesday!

 So stop by Wednesday 10-3 to say hi to Kori…we don’t want her to be too lonely…smile!

New Hours for this week:

We are OPEN: Wednesday, Thursday & Friday 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Have a great weekend!

OK, so now what???

(image from here)

A page from Joanna and Anne Walker’s to do list:

1.  move out of space – check

2.  move back into studio – check

3.  return beautiful furniture to Simple Things – check

4.  give keys back to property manager – check

Now that that’s all done – now what?

Well, here’s the plan:

1.  catch our breaths

2.  go to markets to find more great clothes (yes, I said more since we were counting on success and ordered a ton of great spring lines at the october market – no name dropping yet but trust when we say it will be good!!)

3.  find our next great spot to land for a few weeks

(image from here)

We are so thrilled to be popping back up for spring and can’t thank all of you for your support.  It is what makes it possible for us to do this again!

See you soon!!!
