Starting today, shoppers will be able to score all of their super-chic, office-appropriate blouses and bodysuits in their brick-and-mortar boutique. Workwear never looked so good. Read more »

Bad news: Adorn Boutique is shuttering its doors on June 6th. Sarah Lewis, owner of the Fishtown jewelry boutique, made the announcement via email yesterday, citing that she “decided to focus [her] time and energy on other facets of [her] business, and on new ventures.”
While we’re totally bummed we’ll no longer be able to browse the bohemian brick-and-mortar shop, we find solace in the fact that we’ll still be able to shop jewelry, accessories and home decor online at tribe-jewelry.com. Plus, in conjunction with the store closing, they’re having a massive sale this month to clean out shop — and you know you want to get in on that. Read more »

Fans of America’s Next Top Model will fondly remember the perennial “go-see” episode. Contestants were challenged to go to — and book — as many go-sees at design houses as possible. Inevitably, one model tries to squeeze in one last visit and returns late (a huge no-no), or someone gets hopelessly lost 15 minutes out of the gate. It’s television crack.
The reason I bring up ANTM (besides being a hopeless fan) is because I found my absolute favorite, can’t-live-without-it summer t-shirt and it’s Toggery Brand‘s Go-See Tee (bam!). Silky-soft and pristinely white, it’s comfy but still has a modern fit. Plus, since it’s made from 93 percent jersey modal and 7 percent spandex, it won’t get stretched or lose its shape. It’s a bit of an investment, but it’ll put your Hanes v-necks to shame. Read more »

Craving a getaway to Denmark, Singapore or Portugal, but would rather not shell out for pricey flights? It’s not quite an American Airlines gift card, but Geography 541’s new postcard-inspired collection might be the cure for your case of wanderlust. Designer Madeline Tolle uses miniature metal looms and various threads and materials to craft tiny woven tapestries that you can actually wear. Each piece is one-of-a-kind and rings in at $198, so peruse the selection (this moody Minnesota piece will surely become a staple) and move quick.
Those that don’t see their dream destination offered can order a “Make Your Own Unique Postcard Piece.” Simply select the option here and they’ll contact you for a photo and then weave you your very own custom piece. Say it with us: Best. Gift. Ever.

Friends, we present you the most errand-running-worthy slip-ons around. The easy-peasy shoes are by I.N.K. and you can get ‘em at Head Start Shoes (psst: right now they’re 25 percent off). The Rittenhouse boutique is running the sale indefinitely, but we got word the deal will be on for at least the rest of this week, both in-store and online. The slip-ons cost $258.75 each — so yes, pricey, but they’re like the chicer, buttery-leather version of your worn-out canvas Toms. Plus, the neutral hues mean they’ll match with anything. Read more »
