Boston interior designer, stylist, and blogger Erin Gates of Elements of Style is hosting a shopping party next week at Cynthia Rowley on Newbury Street. Unfortunately I’ll be out of town (well, not so unfortunate, I’ll be in NYC) but if you’re interested in attending, let Erin know. You’ll get 20 percent off your purchases that evening. There are some great fall looks. I’m especially loving the prints and fringe.
I was so excited when Cynthia Rowley opened a boutique on Newbury last year. Partially because it reminds me of my twenties in New York City; one of my favorite charity gala dresses is a Cynthia Rowley. I’m doubtful I will ever squeeze into its size 2-ness, yet I will never part with it. That said, I’ve hardly bought a thing at this still new shop. Well, now’s my chance. The Boston sample sale starts tomorrow and goes through Sunday, 10am to 9pm (really, in Boston, 9pm?!), up to 80% off on clothing and accessories. See ya there.
I heart this clutch. It could be yours, for free. Poor me, I’ll have to buy it.
It’s from StefaniBags.com,a site with a great collection of the best boutique handbag brands, including Hayden-Harnett, Foley + Corinna, Botkier, Kooba, Jalda, and Matt & Nat. Owner Monica Prestia, whom I e-met through my work with Store Adore, has offered to give away one FREE Matt & Nat Takumi Clutch (regularly priced at $245) to a random Style Carrot reader who signs up for the Stefanibags.com newsletter.
The Takumi Clutchis part of Matt & Nat’s new Japanese Paper Collection. It’s grey (my favorite color for clothing; blah but true), vegan, with tone on tone stitching, 100% recycled grey faux suede lining, antique brass and copper hardware, and Matt & Nat logo bar. There’s a front zipper closure and an open pocket on the back, and the interior has a zip pocket and cell phone and PDA pockets. There are two hand held straps, plus a detachable, adjustable shoulder strap. Pretty much perfect, right?
