We have always had a soft spot for Mosch¡no! When it comes through the door here we are instantly thrilled to the gills to see and try it on. Whether it’s a contemporary piece by Jeremy Scott or a vintage number from the past, we just adore the tongue in cheek  humour that the brand evokes. Our current display features two items from the witty fashion house. Can you tell which one is contemporary and which is from the 1980’s? Take a peek below for the answer.

Now that we’ve blown our beak off about one of our favs, let’s get back to discussing the rest of our white window. There is nothing more crisp and clean looking than an ensemble of white. Wearing white is suitable for the following occasions; getting married, going to a white party, getting off of a charge in court (tried and proven x 2), meeting the future in-laws and ascension to heaven. Let us help you be a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

L~D&G cotton corset dress, size 2-6. Worn with a 1980’s Moschino reflective belt.

C~ Contemporary Moschino sequin T-shirt dress, general size S.

R~ Herve Leger bandage dress, size XS Sold. Worn with a 1970’s black crystal necklace.

We think our new champagne window is just as effervescent  and sweet as the French beverage. We’ve come upon this conclusion after studying the reactions of passersby on the sidewalk. It’s all math really…. Pedestrian speed x fashion stimuli / dopamine increase = goodness.

C~ 1960’s 2pc silk dress and jacket. Size 10.

R~Prabal Gurung cream silk blouse with ribbons and mink pom pom detail, size 10. Worn with an Oscar de la Renta skirt, size 10.

So everyone went gaga last week over our instagram pic of the tangerine window! We figured we would stick with the fruity juice theme since that’s what everyone seems to be thirsty for. Feel like a twist of lime this time?  Don’t worry this citrus won’t make you pucker, we promise 😉

Fresh squeezed tangerines are now juicing it up in our window. (And by juicing I don’t mean the steroid crazy/scary muscle kind, that would be weirder than GMOs….)

When black’s not right, why not navy? The non-neutral but yet neutral shade… Check out the crazy Walk Away Factor™ on that dress to the right. Its button up racerback is stunningly chic, especially forward for it’s time considering that it’s from the 1970’s. Perfectly flirty and guaranteed to drop jaws!

I’m releasing my inner dominatrix this week (not really) by giving you a black leather filled window. Fun fact; I cut my teeth in many a retail shop before opening the Meow Meow and Danier leather (RIP) was one of them. Therefore I may know a thing or two about skins. One things for sure, I can tell you that all three items featured here are made of fine supple lamb leather. Only the best for you kittens!
