Our Nanette Dress on "Slumdog Millionaire" Star!

We don't delve into pop culture outside of the fashion world much on our blog, but we've got good reason today! Nanette Lepore's Her Majesty Dress was worn on the Today Show this morning by starlet Freida Pinto of the new indie film Slumdog Millionaire. She even does a lil' dance in the dress!

If you haven't already been by the store to check out one of our favorite dresses of the holiday season, which also comes in red, watch the video below and skip ahead to 5:20 to see how amazing the dress looks on Freida. We still have several of theses dresses left, as well as a beautiful matching jacket that goes with it! Stop by this weekend to try them on!

On a side note, this movie looks good enough to actually catch in the theater!

Intelligent Pants Lead to Hungry Mules!

Ya know when you're wearing a sexy pair of sling backs, mules or strappy shoes and they "eat" the bottom hem of your pants? We hate that, and we know we're not alone!

In walks SmartyPants...the brand new solution to P.H.E. (Pant Hem Entrapment)! They're a firm plastic strip with an adhesive backing that you place in the center of the inside-back of your pant hem. The extra weight and the firm plastic strip keep your pants right where they belong and out of the "mouth" of your backless shoes!

You get 3 pair per package of SmartyPants and they're reusable. Just take 'em off before sending your pants to the dry cleaner.

And, FYI, we're the only store that carries these in the DC/VA/MD area right now! Try these out at Periwinkle for $16.95 per package.

Update Your 'Do!

InStyle Magazine says adding a headband is one of the easiest ways to update your favorite, go-to hairstyle. At Periwinkle, we agree! We have some cute headbands in fun, trendy colors to accent your existing wardrobe or to stand out as a "marquis" piece. You can do a neutral metallic color, like the thin leather Joomi NYC headbands below, that will match with everything. Stop by and jazz up your 'do!

Our Periwinkle model shows off the L. Erickson Bow headband in purple and red.
