PNW Fall is Flannel, Plaid, and Denim

We have Starbucks and the famous pumpkin spice latte, a flavor that has jumped from an anticipated flavor of the season to an icon of the changing weather arriving as early as Halloween candy in the grocery store (months before we’re actually ready). But one thing we never tire of in the PNW is our fall fashion. The first day of fall is tomorrow Friday, September 22 so it is finally time to break out our favorite plaids, flannels, and denim. Every year, there are new, fun variations on these old classics. At La Ree, we share in the love of flannel and plaid and have picked out a few of our favorites available in store now.

Pink, Pink, Pink!

“There is always a shade of pink for every color because pink matches everything”
― Janna Cachola

Pink, a color that never really goes out of style, has been having a (rose) golden age over the last year. Maybe it stemmed from our obsession with rose, or maybe it came from Millennial Pink or maybe it is because everyone looks good in pink. No matter where it came from, it’s staying around for a while. Pantone has included Ballet Slipper Pink as a color for Fall/Winter fashion and there are several shades of pink featured in the 2018 Spring/Summer pallet.

We love a little pink in our wardrobe too. This week, we’ve pulled a few of our favorite pieces that have us tickled pink.

In the words of Miley Cyrus, “Pink isn’t just a color it’s an attitude too!” Add a touch to your fall wardrobe this season and prepare to rock your unique personality all fall long.

Labor Day Style: Celebrate the Start of Fall

There is no denying it, summer in Seattle is the most beautiful time of year here. And while we struggle through long rainy winters together, we have to admit that we have a soft spot for fall fashion. Maybe it is the cozy sweatshirts, or the plaid that we just cannot give up, or the layering—Seattleites are experts at layering, after all—but whatever it is, there is something undeniably special about fall in Seattle. Secretly, I think it is because deep down we love the rain.

Let’s enjoy this Labor Day weekend not as the last bash of summer, but as a celebration of the start of fall. In honor of this celebration, we have picked some great looks for Labor Day weekend featuring sweatshirts, plaid, and, of course, plenty of layers.

Marla Aaron Locks Now Available at La Ree Boutique

Marla Aaron“What began with one lock is now an entire collection designed to be worn in infinite ways and used as “jewel tools” with individuals’ own collections—to redefine the “precious” in jewelry with individuality. Although recognized for its streamlined, industrial look, the collection is deeply rooted in the personal and emotional jewelry of the Victorian and Georgian eras.” — Marla Aaron Website

Since Rachael received her custom Marla Aaron bracelet engraved with the names of her family in mid July, we have had numerous inquiries about the latest jewelry line available at La Ree, so we decided it was time to feature one of our new favorite jewelry designers.

 

Crafted and finished by hand in New York City, Marla Aaron launched her collection in 2013. Inspired by her love for all things bridges, hardware, and jewelry, Aaron started with just one lock and has since grown it into a complete line of stunning pieces designed to be worn together, customized, and collected.

Marla Aaron Baby Locks

Rose Gold Turquoise Lock, Medium Yellow Gold Diamond Lock, Baby Yellow Gold Pink Tourmaline

A simple design originally crafted from a hardware carabiner, Marla Aaron has enhanced the inspiration to include multiple shapes, adding gemstones, and playing with size to create necklaces, interlacing bracelets, and more.

Marla Aarong Lock Necklace

Baby Locks with Yellow Gold Rainbow Sapphire and Ruby and Diamond Baguette

These unique looks combine the industrial feel with the delicate and feminine. Adding a touch of color makes each piece unique and the endless combinations full of personal significance.

Marla Aaron Necklace

Yellow Gold with Diamond Lock and Rose Gold Hand Engraved Lock

Marla Aaron has also crafted hand engraved details like Rachael’s bracelet, or the rose gold lock featured above. The lock above features carvings that swirl and wind around the lock giving it a stunning texture and unique look that compliments the other locks in her collection.

Marla Aaron Necklace

Baby Lock in Rose Gold with Turquoise Baguette and Rose Gold Teardrop Lock

Marla Aaron is more than an incredible jewelry designer. A communications executive turned jewelry designer, she is familiar with what it means to be a single mom. Raising her son as a single mom from ages 1-6 years old before meeting her husband showed her the importance of recognizing other women who are raising children on their own. In support of these women, she started the #LockYourMom initiative that gives baby heart locks to single moms with a simple ! engraved in the side to recognize the “the universal powerful, speechless feeling of motherhood. The !!! of motherhood–both how it feels to be a mother and how one feels about their mother.”

We are excited and proud to bring Marla Aaron to Seattle at La Ree Boutique.
If you see something here you love, please let us know, we’re here to help. Or come by the store and see our full collection of these stunning Marla Aaron piece.

Introducing Le Kasha Cashmere

Every time we find something that we know our customers will love, we start to get excited. We love seeing that surprise and happy unexpected delight shine in their eyes when they see a new label we have brought to the store. Today, we are hoping to see that same shine when we introduce our newest label, Le Kasha Cashmere.

These pieces are soft, warm, and so soft. They are stunning pieces that you will find yourself going to for years to come. This brand has been around since 1918 and solidified their reputation when Coco Chanel chose their brand to make her first suit collection.

“The spirit of freedom and adventure of the 1920s persists today, and with it the enduring values of Le Kasha.” 

Le Kasha Austin Cardigan

Paired with the Veronica Beard Landon Boot

“Founded in France in 1918, Le Kasha was part of a revolution in the way the women of the 1920s dressed. An innovative fabric made with Kashmir goat hair blended with a revolutionary new fiber, here was a fabric that looked elegant and was comfortable, while still being easy to care for, maintaining its shape and style even with constant use and washing.” 

Le Kasha The Verbier

Paired with the Raquel Allegra Easy Pant and Pedro Garcia Antonia Flat

“After the war, as women abandoned corsetry for clothes that allowed greater freedom of movement, Le Kasha’s fabric captured the spirit and mood of liberation of the time.”

Le Kasha Firenze Cardigan

Paired with Raquel Allegra Split Muscle Dress and Isabel Marant Ferlyn Loafer

“Le Kasha’s mission is to make beautiful, timeless pure cashmere clothing suitable for every place and every season.”

“Made from cashmere fiber sourced from the Alashan and Arbus regions of Inner Mongolia, acknowledged as the foremost region for producing the highest and finest quality cashmere fiber, each piece is both light and long-lasting, making it the perfect fabric for the world’s wanderer.”

Come by the store to experience this stunning new brand yourself. We hope it brings a smile to your lips and a shine to your eyes.

We’re not ready for fall weather! But, we also LOVE fall fashion. So, this week, we feature fall fashion available now at La Ree Boutique that can be styled for summer.
