Web Original: Style Report: September 10, 2008

Lifestyle editor Ashley Primis’s style report for the week of September 10, 2008.

Brand New
A new store opened in Old City called Reward. It looks pretty amazing, most notably because they carry clothes from Opening Ceremony (the beloved NYC store/line). It has stuff for guys and girls including clothing, accessories and footwear. Some other exciting, fashion-forward lines: Lover, April ’77, Repetto and Vanessa Bruno. It also joins the cult of art-supporting stores and restaurant in the area by having changing art instillations.

Going Home
Blue Raccoon, a great home store has moving back to its original digs (in the old King Midas bed factory) in Lambertville from New Hope. They have a new design studio called Skylark Design, to help those who are as lost as mixing and matching furniture as I am make some sense of it all.

Beauty Fix
We adore beauty store Beans for making us feel like we are buying stuff that’s normally only to the trade. And now we can play the part: This month at all area Beans, buy a flat iron and get a free lesson from one of the pros on how to use it, or buy a blowdryer and receive a free appointment for a blow dry.
