New Shoes from Fifi & Elvis and Olivia Rose Tal

Two new shoe styles today! On the left is a darling peep toe sling back from Olivia Rose Tal with a satin bow. Wear these to add some fun flair to any simple dress or outfit! On the right is the Tuberose platform wedge by Fifi & Elvis. Although they're a taller shoe, these are actually quite comfy! We think that you could wear the Tuberose with most anything as they're really pretty neutral in color scheme. Summer is nearly upon us! Is your shoe selection up to par?

Little Black Dresses for Summer!

More Summer Favorites from one of our new favorite designers! Shoshanna's dresses are always flattering and feminine. We love a classic black dress with a twist. The Shoshanna flowy flutter sleeve dress is trimmed in eyelet and we put our favorite Lee Erickson sash in red with it to add a touch of color. The origami waist dress also by Shoshanna is pure sophistication. The black and white long halter dress in linen is by Anni Kuan - you, of course, know how much we love her!

A Fun "Fun Top" by Yoana Baraschi

You all are always asking, "What fun tops do you have in right now?" and we realized this great top by Yoana Baraschi has not yet been blogged! Like so many of Yoana's pieces, the Heiress Bohemian top has a cool vintage feel about it, but its bright color combo makes a feel more current. We like this paired with white jeans or pants, but it would of course go well with blue jeans or black pants.

AG Jeans are back in stock

Some of your favorite denim styles are back in stock!

We're offering you a perfect summer weight (8 oz.) of The Club jean in the Local wash. We'll carry The Club as long as AG still makes it since it just seems to fit and flatter just about every woman who tries them on. We also have The Club in White...we think every woman needs a good pair of white jeans for the summer, and The Club definitely delivers! The weight on these is a little more than the Local wash at 10 oz., but of course this is a good thing with white denim.
Last is The Angel in Plush Powder. This bootcut style, non-denim pant feels divine on your body as it's super light weight (7.2 oz) and still has a good amount of stretch. Not only does it feel good on, but it's very soft (plush?!) to the hand too! It's a perfect option for any day where you just aren't feelin' jeans but want the shape and style denim can provide.

Check out Anni Kuan's Classic Tie Jacket (below, left) in the red & pink flower print. It pairs perfectly with any black, white or grey pant or skirt for work, but pair it with jeans for a casual, weekend look. Oh, and did we mention this jacket is exclusive to periwinkle? Anni cut and made this one just for us (really for you all!) by special request!

New Designer: Gyspy Skirts

New to Periwinkle: Gypsy Skirts! We love these adorable one-size-fits-all wrap skirts. Pair one with a crisp white shirt or cotton tank and you're good to go! To achieve the look we're showing on the mannequins, we recommend you start with the label at your belly, then start wrapping around your body from there and finish with a big bow! In addition to being easy and cute, they're a great investment this time of year as these are perfect for events like bridal and baby showers, graduations and engagement parties. Too bad we didn't have these a bit earlier for Gold Cup!
Speaking of...our camera caught a few of our periwinkle shoppers wearing our dresses at Gold Cup in the University Row tents. Thanks for letting us snap a photo of you -- you all looked fabulous, of course :)

Calling All Proud Prep-sters! Elizabeth McKay is here.

"ALL MY PREPPY LADIES, all my preppy ladies, ALL MY PREPPY LADIES! Just put your hands up!" Hmmmm...we think Elizabeth McKay should commission Beyonce for a fierce remix of "Single Ladies" to make it "PREPPY LADIES." This new collection definitely deserves a lil' song & dance!

The Jo Jo Polo is made out of a divine, hearty knit fabric, and pairs so well with the MC Bermuda Short. We love the giant gold button detail! And of course, we need to mention the Scotland Wrap Dress. So many of you ladies loved it last fall in long sleeve, and we know this short sleeve version is no different! We've seen it on several customers already and the fit is superb. Stop by this weekend to check out the whole collection...the cuteness factor is running awfully high here, so we're guessing this one won't last!
