Hitchcock Madrona Trunk Show July 15

This Saturday we’re hosting a Hitchcock Madrona Trunk Show from 11-5pm! We’re in love with their jewelry collection and cannot wait to share it with you.

Hitchcock Madrona Trunk Show Event

Hitchcock Madrona is known for their carefully selected collection of jewelry and accessories. Each item is selected for its unique characteristics and style that matches the owner’s and customer’s tastes. Each piece is chic with a funky twist, and is definitely something that will bring endless compliments throughout the day.

“What makes a boutique interesting? What makes it a place you want to return to again and again? Clients ask themselves this question with every experience, be it conscious or subconscious. Erica and I decided to ask ourselves that same question when we opened Hitchcock Madrona 8 years ago. What do we find interesting, inspiring and what environment would entertain our senses, encouraging us to return 5 days a week? We tried to speak to ourselves before attempting to resonate with our client. The result is an edited range of local, national and international accessory artists we believe in wholeheartedly. We hope it speaks to you too, and if so we are grateful.” – Dustin

Here’s a sampling of a few of the items that Hitchcock Madrona will be bringing on Saturday!

CUff

Leather and Metal Cuffs
The iconic HM leather and metal cuff. We wear our cuffs everyday (seriously). We can’t think of an occasion you couldn’t wear this bracelet, and if we did we would still wear it. We love it that much! Select your wrist size below, and someone from Team HM will personally punch three holes to ensure a proper fit.* Our durable leather only gets better with age; becoming pliable and soft through wear. The metal plate will patina and scratch evenly over time. Don’t fret! Your imperfections are beautiful.

Hitchcock Madrona Bracelets

Shark Tooth Cuff Mixed with Others
Our Shark Tooth Cuff may look intimidating but we have been wearing ours for years, and we swear it doesn’t bite. This little guy also plays nicely with others, stacking perfectly with our thin metal and leather cuff, or favorites you already own. Our Shark Tooth Cuff is the perfect companion for a walk on the wild side or a civilized stroll-whatever suits your mood. Available in Bronze, Sterling Silver, Yellow Gold or Rose Gold Plated.

Hitchcock Madrona Rings

Druzy Quartz Rings 
Our HM Druzy Quartz Rings are like an old friend. She is comfortable, reliable, strong, and completely neutral. All exaggerations aside, this ring was inspired by the otherworldly beauty of druzy quartz. We kept the sterling silver setting sleek yet substantial. Every stone features the natural interplay between two textures – jagged and raw with smooth and refined. The sample image is just that, so anticipate and embrace your ring’s individual nuances.

Hitchcock Madrona Shield Necklace

Shield Necklaces
We love our 18k gold and diamond shield necklace. Symbolizing constant strength and protection (we even sleep in ours!) the shield necklace is our collection’s talisman.

See something you love? We know we do! Come by the store on Saturday between 11am and 5pm to check out all the stunning pieces they will be bringing. See you on then!

Celebrate the Fourth of July in Style

We are just under a week away from another great Fourth of July celebration in Seattle!

Since Seattle is so far north, our summer days have more hours of sunlight and our Fourth of July celebrations are extra long as we wait for the sun to go down far enough to watch fireworks against a dark starry sky. In Seattle, the Fourth of July is considered the official start. We’ve been patient, and from here on out, the weather should be high seventies without a cloud in the sky. Sounds like a reason to celebrate, to me.

To get ready for our long evening of celebrating, we’ve picked out a few of our favorite red, white, and blue Fourth of July BBQ-ready outfits. Plus, if you’re planning to take a long weekend to celebrate, you may want to look at packing a few extra looks to start the partying in style early. We’ve got you covered for Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and, of course, the Fourth of July!

We’ve all heard the “joke” that Seattle summers start on the July 5th, but this year, the forecast is looking sunny with no rain! Let’s keep our fingers crossed it stays positive and sunny throughout the weekend.

So, here’s to good weather, good company, good food, and lots of fireworks. It’s time to kick off the Seattle summer with an incredible Fourth of July extra long weekend!

See something you love? Stop by the store, call us, or check out online. We’re here to help.

Happy Fourth of July!

Favorite New Arrivals

New styles have arrived in store! From new Isabel Marant shoes to new Made on Grand sweaters to new Hitchcock accessories, it’s time to stop by the store to see what we have. Many of these items are so new, they aren’t even online yet! If you see something you love, be sure to come by the store or give us a call.

We picked out a few of our favorite new arrivals to feature this week:
Isabel Marant Garret Boot

We love the new Isabel Marant Garret Boots so much we decided they needed a close up. A little on the edgy side, they are still versatile enough to pair with a variety of looks throughout the summer and into fall.

Isabel Marant West Dress

We paired the Isabel Marant Garret Boots with the new Isabel Marant West Dress and the new Elian Belt. We can see these boots paired easily with denim for a fun look or with business casual pants for a stylish office look.

Made on Grand Swarovski Sweatshirt

New to the store, Made on Grand is quickly becoming a favorite. This sweatshirt is the Swarovski Sweatshirt for the eye-catching Swarovski Bar Appliqué adding a bit of class to your everyday casual look. We’ve styled the sweatshirt with the R13 Denim Kick Fit and Golden Goose Net Slide Sneaker.

Isabel marant Ramsey dress and ferlyn loafer

This little dark navy and black dress can take you from work to weekend without missing a step. The Isabel Marant Ramsey Dress paired with the new Isabel Marant Ferlyn Loafer has adorable detail and, every girl’s favorite, pockets.

Hitchcock Cuffs

We got these Hitchcock Cuffs in store last week and are enjoying them more every day. In fact, we plan on wearing them every day. They match basically any outfit you can think of, and we suggest wearing them even with outfits that you think they don’t match, they’re that cool. Come by the store to try one on, you might never want to take it off.

Isabel Marant Kelia Sweater

The cold shoulder look took off this spring and it will continue throughout the year. The new Isabel Marant Kelia Sweater shows off a sliver of skin creating an intriguing peek-a-boo look . We’ve paired with the R 13 Denim Biker Boy and Robert Clergerie Pasketm Sneaker.

These new arrivals aren’t online yet which means it’s time to stop by the store. See you soon!

 

Here Comes the Sun: Summer Style Must-Haves

You know what they say, summer in Seattle doesn’t really start until July 5th. Honestly, we’re hoping for a start to summer sooner than that if for no other reason than that we have so many adorable outfits we are dying to wear. But mostly because summer in Seattle is one of the best in the country. According to a recent study, Seattle has some of the best beach weather in the country (even if for just a few months). For those few beautiful months, we have mild to high heat, low humidity, and cool evenings. And we’re surrounded by water, everywhere, from the Sound to Lake Washington to Lake Sammamish. Plus, the water is cool and perfect for swimming or boating. Have you noticed how many delicious ice cream places we have? Molly Moons, Blue Bird, Full Tilt, just to name a few. The best part? It doesn’t rain in the summer.

Summer in Seattle is something to be celebrated. We’re preparing for the sunny weather ahead by picking out a few of our favorite summer looks for 2017. Come by and find your summer looks in store, or don’t brave the weather and check out our great summer styles online.

Bright Summer Whites

Can we first just say how happy we are that we don’t have to follow these “no whites before Memorial Day. No whites after Labor Day” rules any more? Winter whites have been a welcome addition to our dark grey, green, brown, black winter wardrobes. We are more than happy to extend white’s season beyond the sunniest of summer days. Still, white is a classic summer color. It could be called THE color of summer. How can we separate white from memories of beaches, big floppy hats, mimosas in the sunshine, and lots of seafood? It’s always part of our ideal summer picture.

In celebration of all things summer, we’re getting out our sunglasses and cocktails a little early this year and picking out our favorite summer whites.
