Perfect Pairings: Take Me on an Adventure

If you missed last week’s debut of our “Perfect Pairings” blog series, you can catch up on the introduction and our week one choices here!

This week’s perfect pairing is all about exotic adventures. This leopard dress from W118 by Walter Baker is the perfect backdrop for a bold ensemble. The brown leather belt’s gold hardware can help you take on exotic locations or the fashion-savvy streets of NYC. Feeling extra adventurous? Leopard tights are always an option, show here with chunky, open-toe sandals. Safe? No. Crave-worthy? Absolutely.

This outfit clearly requires an equally bold and adventurous wine pick. The perfect complement to this outfit? 90+ Cellar’s Lot 23 Malbec from Mendoza, Argentina. Exotic ensemble, exotic wine selection. Coordinating has never been so easy.

Perfect Pairings: American Woman

Becoming a sophisticated style or wine connoisseur takes a lot of practice, so we figured we’d tackle both specialties with our weekly Boston Fashion Week perfect pairing. For those of you fashioniSTAs who attended our Boston Fashion Week show and our shopping after-party at the 176 Newbury Street store, then you were lucky enough to try the newest wine selections from 90+ Cellars. If you missed our show at The Tent, we’ll bring you the exclusive looks from the runway, and if you’re lucky they may still be available at our 176 Newbury Street location.

This week’s perfect pairing is our edgy, American runway look with 90+ Cellars’ Lot 40 Chardonnay. This wine - which was one of the bottles poured at our after-party - is a classic, polished, yet bold American selection. It’s match? The leather inspired texture of this Diesel dress, which brings the edge to the all-American Seven For All Mankind jeggings. For some modern embellishment, these Isabel Marant boots silver chain and tassel detail are just the ticket. The perfect amount of American icon with a splash of boldness.

Sneak Peek #3…and #4

We’re getting to the glitzy with this sneak peek. This amazing Alice + Olivia beaded capelet definitely pushes the runway envelope, but you’ll have to catch the show to see how it gets styled! If you can’t make the show on Friday, remember to stop by our 176 Newbury Street location after the show to shop the looks from the runway!

We also have a bonus sneak peek, especially added for the fans of our 219 Newbury Street location. Wondering where this bag has been hiding? It will be making an appearance in our fashion show! This gorgeous Lanvin is new, and you’ll have the opportunity to get up close and personal with it at our shopping after-party!

Sneak Peek #2: Tracy Reese Coat

We’re bringing you a second sneak peek of our Boston Fashion Week show on Friday with this Tracy Reese embroidered coat. And here’s an added bonus for you style (and Where’s Waldo) fans: see if you can spot this coat’s orange twin in the background! They’re both headed down the runway this Friday! They’re perfect for a fall or spring day, either paired with a conservative dress and pumps as a way to bring a little Kate Middleton into your closet, or paired with a funky, embellished dress  and suede boots to release your inner boho goddess.

Sneak Peek #1 of Our BFW Show!

The countdown to our Boston Fashion Week show on Friday has started! We’ll be bringing you sneak peeks of our runway looks all week, so scope out things early, they’ll all be for sale on Friday at our 176 Newbury Street location at our shopping after-party, sponsored by 90+ Cellars!

Our runway pick for you today is this pair of gorgeous black, satin Prada slingbacks (below). The outfit that these shoes are part of is equally fantastic, so be sure to check out our show or the after-party on Friday!
