What shopper whose made a list and checked it twice doesn’t want a great gift at a bargain price??? Two great sale events and a stroll round out the weekend. Here’s the scoop:
Also kicking off tonight is Critter Glitter at the Potter League. Here’s the deal: you know Sequin, the awesome jewelry and accessory shops on Bellevue Avenue and Thames Street?? At the Potter League, you can purchase with a purpose–all Sequin pieces at great prices. I think what is so great, besides the major discounts and the fact that 100% OF THE SALES BENEFIT THE SHELTER, is that there’s literally something for every lady—little girly girls, trendy gals and the sophisticated woman. So instead of trekking to Nordstrom or Henri Bendel, you just have to pop up to Middletown! Opening Night Sale, December 6 (Friday) from 5:00 – 8:00 pm. Refreshments will be served. Showroom Hours: December 7 – 15 from 10am-5pm (except December 11, from 10am-7pm.
Then on Saturday, enjoy the Franklin Street Stroll, where merchants will have their doors open, refreshments flowing and a jolly good time:
If you’re not familiar with angela Moore style, I live tweeted and posted on Facebook looks from their fashion show last month. Here’s the pro shots from photographer Kate Lucey from the show:
Flip flops are like socks: over the years, you tend to acquire quite a few pairs–good quality ones, old favorites, and cheapies, like the ones you buy for a $1 when you get a fresh pedicure and forgot to BYO flippies. They’re also like socks because it’s not uncommon for one of the pair to go missing. How? The question is never answered, but it does give us an excuse to invest in a new pair.
As I was walking past Helly Hansen last week, I stopped in my tracks after spotting the Women’s Tuckerfish Thong Sandal by Sperry in the window. Classic braided nautical rope detail with Wave Siping™ technology that provides ultimate wet/dry traction make it the perfect pair to wear to a lobster bake, out sailing, to the beach, or bumming around town. The Sperry Women’s Tuckerfish Thong Sandal retails for $50 and rope colors come in black, white (as shown), navy, red, neon green, neon blue and neon salmon. (BTW: this is a new shoe, and it seems to cost $50 across the board, even online at Zappos, Peltz, Polyvore, etc., so if you’re going to pick them up, buy local.)
Even if the temperature has been yo-yoing quite a bit, the sun been shining and I know plenty of people chomping at the bit to hit the links (i.e. Master’s fever). Whether you fantasize about the coveted green jacket being bestowed on you at Augusta or simply play best ball with a frosty beverage at every hole, get your golf style inspiration from this classic image of Jackie and JFK on a putting green at the Newport Country Club on Sept. 14, 1963 (you can see the NCC blue and red pin flag in the color pic below.) Also in the photo is Washington Post senior editor Ben Bradlee and his wife Tony. Note Jackie’s stylish yellow cigarette pants, cream sweater over a navy blue polo, and hat. Check out the video below as well.
There’s a kinship among those who savor New England summers; a shared desire to slow the hands of time during the season all the while enjoying the simpler spoils of summer: soft serve from a humble ice cream stand, chilled white wine at sunset and soft fabrics on sun-kissed skin. Mahi Gold celebrates this passion for coastal living. The decidedly unfussy line by Becky & Mike Gorman is inspired by summers on Cape Cod, embracing simple silhouettes and pleasing color palates.
I was recently at Island Pursuit on Thames Street and spotted some totally covetable Mahi Gold pieces including a simple shift dress, tank dress, maxi and skirts (man made with organic cotton)—all with a subtle signal flag pattern. There were also pieces for him—tee’s, swimsuits and more.
Gotta love this about Mahi Gold too: Born on the beach. Made in the U.S.A.

If you have pieces by Susana Monaco hanging in your closet, you already know the line is well-crafted, long lasting, and super comfortable. A Jersey girl at heart (that’s why we love her!), Susana’s father was an engineer and tailor, so fine form and flattering the female silhouette is not only important, but ingrained when it comes to the designer’s approach.Susana Monaco doesn’t come cheap, but there’s a reason her tank tops, bottoms, dresses and swimwear always look outstanding ($75 – $200 on average)—good craftsmanship.
Newport’s Chace N’Lulu on Bowen’s Wharf carries the line, and just let fans know the new Susana Monaco pleated romper is in at $168 in red or navy blue, and there may still be some fab pieces on the sale rack! Happy spring shopping!
