STORES WE LOVE

Here are some of our favorite places to shop - on-line or IRL. Some differing sensibilities here, but we love to mix it up. We’ve put them in alphabetical order so we don’t play favorites.

Alo - The L.A. born and bred yoga/fitness brand - studio to street style - Pam’s favorite. They have an excellent yoga app.

Anine Bing - Rock & Roll Mama! Great inspiration.

Clare V. - Handbags and accessories we love, very good price point.

Cos - Mara could buy her entire wardrobe here. Actually, I should rephrase. Mara HAS bought her entire wardrobe here. Modern, functional, considered.

Cult Gaia - We love the World of Gaia - coolest bags and gauzy dresses. Indulge your inner hippie.

Cuyana - Their mission of “Fewer Better Things” fits the way we want to live. Clothing, handbags and accessories, lovely materials, good prices given the quality and styling.

Eileen Fisher - Well-made items you can mix into your wardrobe and you’ll have forever. Love their environmental ethos and pro-woman programs.

Equipment - Go-to for great silk shirts and dresses.

Everlane - Excellent t-shirts and basics. “Radical transparency” in their production and pricing. Ethically made.

Golden Goose - Sneakers - Effortlessly cool, distressed, Italian. Need we say more?

Goop - Yes, we know, Gwyneth. Pros and Cons. But the clothes are beautiful.

Gucci - The brand that single-handedly brought back the fanny pack and the barrette! Modern luxury.

J. Crew - You say nah, but then you go and you’re like yes, yes, yes.

Lou & Grey - Comfy, cozy sweats, casual, plus great sneakers.

Mansur Gavriel - Handbag alert! This French brand is riding the minimalist wave. Their bags have contrasting colors inside, gorgeous.

Modern Citizen - Modern, chic and sophisticated classics.

Need Supply - Online cult favorite with a real live store in Richmond, VA. Mara discovered this when she was living in Charleston.

Nili Lotan - Chic, understated elegance. Israeli designer, you’ll want to get her pants in every color. So cool!

Nordstrom - They are killing it on line with great collaborations, good selection and helpful outfit suggestions. Plus the sales!

Strathberry and DeMellier: British native brands, Dutchess approved!
