Things You’ll “Love, Actually” from The Rhode Show


We might be ready to raise the winter white flag, but this season is taking no prisoners. So while the cold temperature and seemingly endless snowstorms have their way, we may as well look fabulous as events like the Newport Winter Festival remind us that every snowy cloud has a silver lining! Here’s some winter survival fashion finds that might some in handy as you head to the Ice bar at Polar Pineapples and other festive happenings! Here’s what I brought to The Rhode Show this morning (segment clip will be posted later today). Also, I’m wearing designer Jude Connally, a New Jersey based-designer whose piece are available at Michael Hayes and are made in the USA!

The Pistil Athena scarf is long, lean and super soft. Acrylic yarns have a subtle sheen, and the fringed tassels are exceptionally lengthy.

The Flirt Skinny Yoga Tight (Wildcat) by Kira Grace features extra-long length with an inseam that allows it to flow over the heel, low-rise waistband with body contouring details for a smooth fit, comfortable compression and moisture-wicking fabric with 4-way stretch.

Ready? Set? SHOP!


Throughout the weeks leading up to Christmas, I’ll be shining the local shopping spotlight on fabulous local finds in and around Newport  that may just be the perfect gift for that impossible shop for person. Today I am kicking off the season by highlighting something I wouldn’t mind finding under my own tree…an Irish sweater. Here’s the thing: the Irish sweater has come a long way. As a second generation Irish girl, I’ve been wrapped in these sometimes itchy, always cream-colored winter staples since a wee lass, but today’s Irish sweaters can be pure luxe.

Around town you’ll find some great Irish sweaters at Ireland Calls (naturally), Potter & Co., Chace N’ Lulu and Monelle. Some of these shops carry the line Fisherman Out of Ireland, which in full disclosure, I have a soft spot for because they’re made in Donegal, Ireland, where one of my grandparents are from. But here’s the thing: Fisherman Out of Ireland makes some awesome sweaters, wraps, hats and accessories. Because the pieces are fine quality, they’re not inexpensive, but they’re the kind of pieces that last for ages and are classic additions to your wardrobe. Here’s a Fisherman Out of Ireland knit hat for $58 from Monelle (across from Clarke Cooke House):

ImageOh, and did you know you can enjoy a complimentary glass of wine at the Clarke Cooke House with a receipt that shows you shopped at a Bannister’s Wharf shop? Tell me that doesn’t sweeten the local shopping deal?! I’m also loving this Irish sweater cape from Potter & Co.:

Just What the Yogini Ordered


Studies have shown that there is a direct link between what people wear to workout and how they perform. It’s no wonder: when you look good, you feel good. When you feel good, you’re more inclined to do your best. Whether you’re kickboxing or downward dogging, performance wear that wicks moisture while being comfortable is key.

ImageI’m loving the yoga clothing and gear by Kira Grace recently introduced at Potter & Co. in Newport. The line of tops, tanks, pants, capris, leggings and jackets are designed and tested by yoginis for yoginis.  The line was created to “lift your spirit at the touch, feel or at a glance.”

With creative cut-outs and a whimsical twist on traditional design, the line is equally fashionable and functional. I’m not sure if Kira Grace is included in the sale, but right now through July 28, Potter & Co. is having a mid-summer clearance sale, so you can pick up some fabulous workout apparel, swimsuits, flips flops and more at a great price.

Potter & Co. is located at 172 Thames Street in Newport.

Let’s Talk About Socks, Baby

Free-thinking fabric, unisex appeal, affordable prices, and some come in threes…what’s not to love about Stance socks? Nothing, if you ask Chafee Emory and her super stoked staff at Potter & Co. With completely original designs created by emerging artists, the look is bold and brave, and favorite among well-known surfers, snowboarders, and skaters (some are padded and Coolmax technology). I love that the colorful styles make the perfect little unexpected punch when peeking out above a calf-high boot or underneath jeans or trousers. Lengths vary from ankle, to calf, to knee, and price ranges generally from $10-$20.

Stance socks are available at Potter & Co in Newport located at 172 Thames Street.

Deals & Steals: WinterFest 2012 Edition

I can report that the Kristina Richards Annual Blow-out Sale is worth a trip to the trendy Washington Square boutique where you’ll find up to 75% off. Instead of sale racks being in the center of the store per a usual KR sale, the whole store is marked down. I’m talking $350+ dresses by Shoshanna, Milly and more for $75, spotted some tops for $25 (which I’ll be going back for today), jeans from DL 1961, Rich & Skinny, Seven and J Brand, and pieces from Alice + Olivia (pictured above), T-bags (so soft!), Splendid, Ella Moss (rarely seen on sale), Free People, Bailey 44 and more (wear something easy to change in and out of because you might set up camp in the dressing room)! PS: Check out some of the amazing shoes and bikinis on sale too!

While there, pop into Karma consignment shop next door, where all clothing is 50% off and you’ll find labels like Givenchy, Prada, Carmen Marc Valvo and more.

If you’re looking for some inspiration to keep that New Year’s Resolution going, stop into Potter & Co. where you’ll find a lot of great pieces with big markdowns that are perfect for yoga, Pilates, running, snowboarding and all outdoor pursuits. Speaking of performance gear, Patagonia on Thames has some of their signature pieces marked 40%-60% off.

Looking for a little posh and polished looks for the little ones? Mimi’s for Kids on Touro Street near Bellevue has slashed prices that are just too cute for your pint-sized fashionistas.

J. McLaughlin on Bellevue also has some killer sales on pieces you can wear all year long. Nearby, Wish is marking down tons of designer duds by Chloe, Tahari, Tory Burch, BCBG, and Rib & Rhein has a great blend of sale pieces and new arrivals.

At Pink Pineapple, buy 1 get 1 50% off all jewelry in the Newport store only as well as a huge blow-out sale with 50% off clothing (check out the new spring arrivals too!) The Portsmouth Pink Pineapple, meanwhile, is loaded with all new resort and spring clothing! Speaking of Portsmouth, Stalise is honoring President’s Day by inviting shoppers to take an extra 25% off sale merchandise (which is already a steal). Note: they’re closed Sunday so get in today.

Tropical Gangsters on Thames Street is having their $10, $20, $30 sale where you’ll find pieces at those prices throughout the store, so stock up on your “going out” gear.
