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.

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

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

Le Kasha Verbier Sweater
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

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.”

Le Kasha Monaco Crop Sweater

Le Kasha Monaco Crop Sweater
Paired with Adaptation Hi Rise Wide Crop and Veronica Beard Griffin Flat

“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.

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!

 

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!
