Layers for Days (and Nights!) with Tee Lab by Frank & Eileen

Summer is finally here! But before we go rushing out into the sunshine with no jacket, we have to remember that it still is getting pretty cool in the evenings. That’s why we love Tee Lab by Frank & Eileen! Their layers are perfect to keep you feeling cute and comfortable throughout the day, from 60 degree mornings to 80 degree afternoons to 50 degree nights. Pair with your favorite Golden Goose sneakers or sandals by K Jacques or Ancient Greek and you can dress up or down your Tee Lab layers.

We have to be honest, we’ve fallen in love with Tee Lab at La Ree. We love the versatility, the comfort, the unique cuts of skirts and dresses, and the way we can mix and match our pieces to create a new look every time.

We’ve chosen a few of our favorite pieces currently available now at La Ree. Come by to mix and match a few of your favorites!

Designer Spotlight: Spinelli Kilcollin

Spinelli Kilcollin Trunk Show

Tomorrow we are excited to be hosting one of our favorite jewelry brands for a trunk show at La Ree Boutique as part of our 10 Year Anniversary Party. The brand, which was founded by Yves Spinelli and is manufactured and designed in Los Angeles, California, is a stunning minimalist statement of clean architectural lines. Spinelli started the brand with a set of interlocking rings of various sizes that were designed to be worn stacked or across multiple fingers. From here, the brand was born.

A career in fashion was a natural path for Spinelli, born to parents who were hair stylists. After he moved to LA, he worked for several years at Maxfield Bleu, where he was a store manager and top sales person. Working at the boutique inspired him to create his own line of jewelry.

Maxfield would be where he would launch his first line of jewelry. Over time, Spinelli began integrating diamonds into his designs and was then asked to create a custom piece for Ikram Goldman, which included 5k of diamonds. This piece resulted in national coverage of the line, getting the attention of larger brands that now were interested in carrying his stunning line. Today, the Spinelli Kilcollin line can be found across the country in department stores and boutiques.

Beyond rings, the Spinelli Kilcollin line also includes bracelets, earrings, and more.

Pastels and One All Black Look that Pops

Even though we’ve seen snow as recently as this week, we know that spring is still coming around the corner. To keep our mind off the dreary wet weather outside, we’re having some fun creating spring-inspired outfits based on pastels and monotones. Plus, we had to throw in one all black look that really pops! We are still from Seattle after all, and you know how we love our blacks in Seattle.

Plus, there’s always the option of dancing in the rain. It’s Seattle, it may be raining, but at least we’re dancing!

We’re Seeing Prints and Patterns

One of our favorite ways to brighten up a day or add that extra something to an outfit is to incorporate some prints and patterns into our wardrobe. And, right now, we have some very fun pieces in store featuring some of the greatest classic prints. From plaid, to tie dye, to animal print, to abstract, you are sure to find a piece that matches your personal style to add that extra je ne sais quoi to your look.

R13 twisted back plaid shirt

How sassy is this R13 Twisted Back Plaid shirt!? Wear as styled or layer with a cami or long sleeve t-shirt underneath.

Rock your tie-dye vibe in the Raquel Allegra Racer-Back Tank and Crop Flare Pants. You’re  ready for the weekend.

Nothing adds a little pop to the classic t-shirt and jeans look like a fun patterned scarf! Throw on some style with the Dianora Salviati Amalfi scarf while wearing your R13 Bauhaus Tee, Kate Vintage Skinny Denim, and Ancient Greek Apteros Slide Sandals. 

If you love playing with patterns and prints as much as we do, be sure to stop by the store or call us!

Accessories to Escape Wintery Weather

We’ve been having some serious wintery weather over here in the Seattle area. Okay, well it’s serious for us. We’ve had a snow day and recently it has felt like buckets of rain have been falling nonstop (and that IS unusual for Seattle).

 

So, when we were thinking about what we wanted to write about in our blog this week, we decided to focus on the sun and the accessories we would love to be wearing during a warm winter escape. Our favorites? The shoes and the handbags.

Here in Seattle, we’re good at dancing in the rain, but we’re also good at dancing in the sun. Today, we’re feeling sunny vibes. If you’re on the same page, come by the store, escape the rain, and treat yourself to some sunny weather shoes and bags while sipping a glass of bubbly. It almost feels like summertime. Plus, if you do have a sunny vaca coming up, what better way to keep away the winter blues than with a new pair of shoes for your trip!

Or take a mini break at your desk (it is Friday after all) and spice up your week with a little online shopping! We promise we won’t tell 😉

Looks of Love

The stores are lined with pinks and reds, Cupid is busy, and love is in the air. Whether or not you’re a fan of the Valentine’s Day, it is at least a good excuse to tell the ones you love how you feel, and to practice some self-love as well! One of our favorite quotes this time of year is by Charles Shultz, “All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.” We are completely on board with that statement, but we think that chocolate can sometimes be replaced by clothes. After all, we are truly, madly, deeply in love with clothes.

In honor of the season, we have picked out a few of our favorite looks of love.

You know what they say, “There is no remedy for love but to love more,” or as we like to put it, there is no remedy for the love of shopping, but to shop more. See you soon, lovelies! <3

4 Styles to Wear for Your Sunny Vacation

We’re daydreaming of a sunny getaway. Somewhere without rain, or ice, or cold fog. Somewhere that smells like the ocean and coconuts. A chair by a pool with a drink and the sun high in the sky. Seattle has months left of rainy dreary weather and that just won’t do. We are ready for our sunny vacation. And we’ve got our bags already packed with the perfect sunny weather vacation styles.
