ALC…new arrival

We love the A.L.C. brand and are thrilled that our fall order has arrived in all its glory!


Who is A.L.C.?

Born and raised in New York City, Andrea Lieberman graduated from Parsons School of Design with a degree in Fashion and went on to work with Giorgio D’Saint Angelo and Romeo Gigli. After several years of world travel, Andrea returned to New York to open her retail store Culture and Reality. The store became a cult sensation and segued her into the world of styling where her clients included Gwen Stefani, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Hudson, Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Lopez among others.

She debuted her A.L.C. ready-to-wear collection in 2009 and quickly became a globally recognized designer . Comprised of daring silhouettes, chic modular separates and perfectly engineered basics.

The A.L.C. collections are sold in top retailers around the world including Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman, Harvey Nichols, Holt Renfrew and Lane Crawford….

and we are thrilled to add You Are Here to her list!

Emmanuelle Alt

Maybe it is because she is French, maybe it is her love of blazers, maybe it is her mix of edgy with classic…or maybe it is just that certain je ne sais quoi, whatever it is…it works!

Why do we love Emmanuelle Alt?

Lots of reasons, but to name a few…

Comments Off on whirlwind…


3 days shopping for the 2013 spring season in Los Angeles…home late Wednesday night…a great happy hour trunk show Thursday night…

it’s been a bit of a whirlwind, to say the least!

Los Angeles

We are thrilled to be back home and looking forward to another great day with Gail Travis of N:F:P in the store.  Her fall collection is amazing!

So, if you missed the show the last night…don’t worry Gail is still here but you will want to hurry!

She will be in the store today (Friday) 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. before she leaves us to fly back to NYC.

 We look forward to seeing you.

We are so excited to announce that designer Gail Travis of


will be doing a personal appearance/trunk show

Thursday, Oct.  18 – Happy Hour shopping

6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

Friday, Oct. 19

10 a.m. – 1 p.m.

We have been huge fans of her innovative style for quite some time.  She is a true talent!  The knitted sweaters (NIT), hand felted dresses and tops (FELT) and foundation jersey pieces of tanks, bodysuits, and leggings (PHRAME) collectively present a unique line of architectural building blocks. N:F:P additionally offers a distinctive line of tunics, dresses and floor-length gowns using a signature felting technique, one of the oldest methods of fabric-making.

Here’s a quick look at a few of her styles to give you an idea…although pictures don’t do them justice – the colors, the hand – really it must be seen in person and better yet, with the designer.  Gail’s pieces can be worn in a multitude of ways – backwards, forwards, with a belt, upside down…yes, literally – upside down – so to be able to hear from her  how to best style her pieces is a real treat!

We can’t wait to see you Thursday (6:30 – 8:30 p.m.) and/or Friday (10 a.m. – 1 p.m.) to introduce you to Gail.

Local love…

Sol Linero

Well, sort of…local in the sense that we have new arrivals for you that are from the great state of Texas!  As you know, so many designers call NYC and LA their home but we are thrilled to have found 2 fabulous labels so close to home!


1.  Herff Christiansen:

Herff Christiansen is a collaboration between two women inspired by the urban landscape of Austin. One half  of the partnership (Herff) is a Texas girl and the other half (Christiansen) is originally from Denmark.  Their line, while inspired by Austin, also has a very Scandinavian aesthetic to it.  They aim to offer very high fashion essentials in quality fabrics and a tonal palette that never go out of style.  Their pieces are the building blocks of a great wardrobe…leggings/tights, tees & tanks.  In addition to the basics, they have a cardigan & a blazer (arrived this week) that are anything but basic!  They are both the perfect finishing touch to an easy but well styled outfit.

The Long Cardigan - Long Sleeve - Herff Christiansen

2.  Koch

Pronounced “Cook”,  this line, launched 8 years ago by designer Nicole Musselman,  is the definition of effortless chic.  While her inspiration comes from her many travels abroad, most of the collection is manufactured locally in Texas…as a matter of fact in DFW.  Her pieces have a fun beachy vibe about them – they are easy, comfortable…really, they are amazing!  When asked about her line, Nicole described it as: “Beach girl and city girl mixed into one and looking effortlessly chic while living a busy, sometimes chaotic, occasionally glamorous life. I love this idea of our customer moving through different worlds, traveling and looking sexy, flirty and fresh…a juxtaposition of seriousness and playfulness.  A way to look dressed up without trying too hard. Essentially this is what the brand is all about, a lifestyle that encompasses an eclectic outlook, travel and the everyday. This is why we target a wide age range. It is not so much about the age of the customer but the way she lives and dresses.”

This is just a glimpse of what we have ordered from these 2 great labels, so come on by to support the “local” economy and to see all of the amazing pieces in the store!

Style icon report…TTH

As you know…we love a stylish girl – a girl with a point of view, a girl who puts things together that makes us say, “Wow!”, a girl with confidence to put it together and pull it off.

And Taylor Tomasi Hill (Moda Operandi’s artistic director) is no exception.  We love her hair, her style – her personality just jumps off the page.    Taylor describes herself as a “clothing chameleon” – ever evolving, mixing classic pieces with edgy – but whatever way you want to describe it…we think that girl has got some serious style!
