Workshop Inc. is another one of those really great (slightly off the beaten path) clothing boutiques that we have here in Litchfield County. You’re either in the know, or you know now! This place is great! We discovered so many designers and lines that we never knew…and now love!!

We bring to you four different looks each and a Q&A with store owner Jan Nelson. Workshop Inc can be found at 10 Cobble Court, Litchfield, in perhaps the cutest cobblestone courtyard we’ve ever seen.

Worth New York

While we were in the city for NYFW, we scheduled an appointment to meet our Litchfield County friend Susan Haberman at the Worth New York showroom. Susan is an independent stylist for Worth, a company that has a strong belief in empowering the stylists that work for them, and the woman who buy their clothes.

We certainly felt on top of the world while we were there, trying on outfit after outfit! The view of Central Park from the 24th floor at 730 5th Avenue is incredible. The flagship penthouse showroom once belonged to Imelda Marcos – just one of the many floors she needed to house her shoe collection! So yes, quite a heavenly experience…read on!

Thankfully swimwear season is almost behind us here in LC (we’ve already switched over to comfort eating), but it was very much “now” at the Fashion Palette New York’s Australian Swim/Resort wear runway show! Nine different Australian designers showed off their SS17 collections at Pier 59. 

With a couple of days scheduled doing all the fashionista things of our dreams at NYFW, we asked Bartley Johnstone, stylist and owner of B. Johnstone in Kent, to help us come up with an amazing outfit for one of the days!

We asked Bartley to please kick us out of our comfort “go-to” zones, and help us put together an outfit that would scream “street style!”

What a pleasure it was to attend the Josie Natori Spring/Summer 2017 Presentation held at the impressive Waterfall Mansion during NYFW. The alternative to showing a collection on a runway, a presentation allows guests to get up close and personal! Those models are good sports and reminded us of the Queen’s Guard, with all of us staring at them. We did manage to get one model to smile at us though…scroll on and enjoy the collection. We loved it!

We know it’s still trés 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!

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!

Photos shot on location around the town of Kent and at Gooseboro Drive-In, Bantam (check out our feature next week!).

While in Boston, we made sure to go visit Daniela Corte’s atelier (love that word) – a true Boston brand. We chatted with Kerri Walsh, Director of Operations, then had ourselves a little photo shoot outside on the super fashionable Newbury Street. Check out the looks the three of us put together and then let us tell you about how good their signature leggings feel! Ya never felt leggings like em!

Even though at the time of writing this it’s snowing in Litchfield County…it IS spring! We visited J. McLaughlin (Washington Depot) to try on their new spring collection and present to you our favorite pieces! Get ready, the weather will surely reflect the season any day now!
