Escape with Trina Turk Candles

Summer is upon us, and if you're like most of America, you're probably lining up some kind of summer getaway. You've got your expertly coordinated Periwinkle wardrobe ready to go, complete with a TIBI beach cover up, Pa-Tou-Tou tote and matching Amy Jo flip flops!

However, things get in the way of our perfectly visualized travel plans...gas & air fare prices, sick children, your boss declaring things are too busy for you to skip town, etc. The nerve!
Fear not though, as we just got in some of Trina Turk's new candles in fresh summer scents that can transport you away from DC. We especially love the Beach scent, which we've been burning in the store. The Desert and Citrus varieties are also wonderful scents for summer.

So, if your vacation plans have been thwarted, or if you just want to relax and try to extend a recent vacation, stop in for a new Trina Turk candle. And hey, maybe even break out your blender for a Pina Colada while you're at it!

That PERFECT Black Suit

We just had to post this AMAZING Anni Kuan suit today!

This feminine, cotton suit is the perfect addition to your summer work wardrobe. We've seen it on so many women, and because it's such a great fit, almost everyone takes it home without planning on alterations. Plus, it's a great price! The jacket is $268 and the skirt is $132. Each piece can mix and match with your existing wardrobe. We even like the jacket with jeans!

And, to give you that warm and fuzzy feeling, this suit, like most of Anni Kuan's pieces, is made in New York City under fair labor conditions.

We think the suit pairs well with the Jaime Mascaro heels show in the can also check those out on our website by clicking HERE.
