How can I resist?
 
So… I’m the one who’s constantly being teased and how often do I hear, How do you ever work in here and even begin to take home a paycheck?  Well, just between you and me, this is a true dilemma and challenge for me.

For example, this new fur vest from Karen Kane is calling my name.  I can just see it paired with my camel turtleneck and brown jeans.  A splash of gold jewelry and…  Oh shoot!  How am I ever going to resist?

Literally out of the box just today are some fabulous fall pieces from Bryn Walkerclothing where simplicity, beauty and comfort are primary.  Give them an A+ for sophistication and looks yet they are easy to care for and great for travel.  What more could you want?  And it’s very nice to say, they are made in the USA.

Three pieces are especially exciting in design, color and versatility. Shelly and I had great fun opening the box and re-doing the aisle with our newest finds.

Remember the car coat of past?  Well, there’s a new modern version in our short wrap coat with its versatlile length, feminine shawl collar and convenient front pockets.

Then there’s the longer version in our full length wrap coat with its generous collar, easily cuffed sleeves and a cut-away front that flares out to a longer back length.

Add to that our new Branson tunic with dropped shoulders, folded cowl neck and front side pockets… great paired with skinny jeans or leggings and all the coziness of a comfy sweatshirt.  No need to wait for the week-end to don this delicious top.

These pieces are made in a luxurious combination of bamboo and organic cotton and are machine wash warm and tumble dry medium.

The color array is striking from rich golds to warm rusts and earthen greens.
So Bring on Fall!!

      Beginning this Fall, our popular Two Star Dog

      label will now transition into a newly organized line,

      the Stella Carakasi signature label.

Using natural fibers like Boiled wool, Silk and Tencel, this new name is a collection of pieces that combine European flair with a casual lifestyle.     Stella Carakasi has been at the helm of Two Star Dog for over twenty years and is thrilled to see the evolution the designs are taking.

      Fashion is about taking risks and going with what you feel but never losing sight of your vision and conviction.

As we’ve been opening boxes of Stella, we’re thrilled to see how the textures and surprise design details are complimenting our new Fall inventory. Colors too are exciting with shades of peridot and fuchsia fitting into our black and graphite grey neutrals.

Come see if you agree, and try on a new Stella Carakasi piece!
