Onyx II

I’m pretty sure that neither Lora nor I have ever been as laden in fine jewelry as we were the day we went to visit Daniel Sanchez and James Murphy at Onyx II Fine Jewelry. Located in Watertown, we asked if we could visit, play dress-up with all of their precious gems, and perhaps have a little Prosecco and ask a Q or 2.¬†ūüėĀ

Allegra & Luca¬†is an affordable boho brand we recently discovered (yep, again on Instagram!) based in Litchfield County. They carry items for babies, kids, and fully grown adults. ūüėČ All items are proudly made in the USA and Mexico. Find out more about the brand from owner, Allegra Kashmer, and allow us to show you a couple of very cute items they sell! Everything you see here, and more, can be purchased through their website¬†www.allegraandluca.com.

Cathy B

Cathy B¬†is a new biz that we’re jumping up and down excited to tell you about! Cathy¬†Boskoff is the owner of¬†a new store based in Woodbury, bringing some really awesome fashionable finds to the area.

We met via Instagram (usual story, mutual #gentlestalking) and after a¬†two-hour non-stop¬†laughing and talking dinner at The White Horse, an instant friendship was made. She is a kindred spirits in our love of fashion, who is searching for unique, nobody-else-will-have-it things; be it, purses, shoes, scarves, clothing, jewelry… we could go on and on! Check out our pics to see some of the treasures we speak of…

We know it’s still tr√©s hot outside, but fall sweater weather is a comin’! We teamed up with Wooden Ships¬†by Paola Buendia to show off some of our favorites from their autumn/winter ’16 collection. Wooden Ships is a super eco-friendly, socially conscious, cool company based in NYC, and they make the snuggliest sweaters ever!

Nestled in the woods of Bethlehem, on a picturesque horse farm, is the jewelry design studio of Steinen Hurtado, owner of Steinen Jewelry. We first met Steinen (pronounced stay-nin) when¬†we were working on our Valentine’s Day gift guide and not only fell in love with her work, but with her!

So while Bev is in “full-on-camp-mode” at Buck’s Rock, I decided to head over to Bethlehem to¬†catch up with Steinen and get to know her better. I also wanted to see how things were going on the custom earrings she was creating for Bev and my sister Holly, for their matrons of honor outfits for the wedding!

Lora recently discovered JED on Instagram – a high end knitwear company¬†(launched last year) that began¬†with luxurious Italian cashmere, and¬†is now expanding to silks and other woven categories. JED’s designer, Jed Krascella worked alongside Perry Ellis and has created this amazing new brand that we’re pretty excited about!

After a little online flirting and gentle stalking, we offered our blogeling and styling skills – we’d each style one of their sweaters (of their choosing), three different ways. We have to say, they chose perfectly! With Litchfield County as our beautiful backdrop, it was a match made in cashmere heaven.

Jed is also a fellow Nutmegger, so read below for the fabulous interview!

This entire post is brought to you by Terston¬†and the letter S – for stylin’! We’ll tell you more about the store in Kent, and chat with owner Geraldine Woodruff tomorrow. For now, enjoy a purely fashion blog post! All clothing available from the store.

You know we like to try to match our wardrobes to our surroundings and adventures when at all possible. Not sure why; we can’t seem to help it. Knowing that Rock Hall Luxe Inn (where we were going for our next Getaway feature and featured on the blog tomorrow) was a beautiful mansion on a 23-acre estate in Colebrook, we decided that R. Derwin ladies store would be the perfect collection to wear there. With its enchanting gardens, gravel driveways, fountains, grass tennis courts, and majestic¬†stairways, we felt the inn required classic clothing, luxurious fabrics, and maybe just a hint of a bygone Hollywood era.

Today’s fashion post is brought to you by J. Seitz & Co., located in the extremely picturesque town of New Preston. Amanda Seitz, co-store owner, and F.I.T. graduate put together these amazing outfits for us! Enjoy a little virtual shopping, and plan a trip in the near future. Can’t get there anytime soon? You can also order by phone ‚ėéÔłŹ
