Feeling Lucky

Everyone has that one item that has a little extra magic in it. Some people call it their lucky item others just say it is a significant piece that has extra meaning to them. Either way, these invaluable items have a special place in our hearts.

Since St. Patrick’s Day is tomorrow, we thought it would be fun to feature a few of our staff’s Lucky Items as well as some product in store that feel like they might possess some that same magic. No need to go chasing after any Leprechaun’s, just stop by La Ree to find your new lucky piece!

The Secret to Staying Positive in the Rain: Cute Loungewear

We just finished the second wettest February in history. And March hasn’t been much sunnier. If you’re hiding indoors counting down the days until summer, we have exactly what you need to be stylish and comfortable. We love loungewear and believe that an old t-shirt shouldn’t be your go to when you are cozying up on the couch with the latest Netflix. You deserve to feel cute and beautiful even with your hair up and no makeup. Looking good feels good, so even if you’re at home and it’s raining again, make things a little brighter by enjoying the simple things in life: cute loungewear!

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.

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 😉

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.

New Year, New Style: Refresh Your Wardrobe

New Year’s Resolutions aside, this time of year is a great time to take stock of what you have and what you need in your wardrobe. Is it time to get rid of a few old sweaters? Are there jackets that you don’t wear anymore? Maybe a refresh of those not so white white t-shirts. Once you have taken the time to go through and remove what is no longer needed, you deserve a reward. This New Year, take time to create and add new styles to refresh your wardrobe.

Even adding small pieces can give you more options to mix and match into your already fabulous looks and create something new and refreshing. We’ve selected a few pieces that have just arrived at La Ree and will be excellent for adding that little je ne sais quoi to your 2017.

Need a little refresh inspiration? Check out these five tips on cleaning out your closet:

  1. Take everything out. While this may seem a little intimidating, you’ll realize just how much you have and you’ll find things that you may have forgotten you owned. When you eventually put everything back in, take the time to arrange your clothes in a way that will make getting dressed easy and fun!
  2. Get new hangers. Creating a closet that is organized is part strategy, part aesthetics. Hangers help with both. Having a variety of hanger types not only looks messier, but it can also cause spacing issues when hanging your clothes.
  3. Divide and Conquer. Adding dividers to your shelving may be a great way to keep your sweaters and other folded items neat. Plus, you won’t be dealing with piles that are tipping over and losing their shape.
  4. Go vertical. Remember that using floor space can be a great place to line up shoes, store a laundry basket, or store your off season clothes. Storing sweaters in fabric safe bags or containers throughout the summer will free up space for shorts and swim suits. Then switch during the colder months.
  5. Reduce. This might be the hardest part of the whole process. When deciding if you want to keep a piece, consider, have you worn it recently? Does it have sentimental value? Would you buy it today? Can someone else use it more than you? Then when you have your pile of clothes to get rid of, sort through to see what can be sold, what can be donated, and what needs to be thrown out.

Good luck! We’re wishing you a very refreshing January and 2017!

Be sure to come by the store or shop online when you’re ready to pick up those new pieces that will add that extra something to your personal style.

PLUS — REWARDS WEEK STARTS JANUARY 9TH! 
Join us for Rewards Week from January 9th – January 23rd to spend your earned dollars. La Ree staff will be contacting you to let you know how much rewards dollars you have earned.

Bring on 2017 in Nili Lotan

Around this time of year, we often spend time looking back at the previous year and considering everything that didn’t go quite the way we had hoped. It is a time of year where we look to the future and imagine what we want for ourselves and our loved ones. We try to figure ways we can change to make ourselves better: more sleep, less stress, more exercise, less sugar.

But let’s focus on the good! It is a time for renewal and new hope (and hopefully some new styles in the closet!). Yes, it’s true, sometimes the best way to say goodbye to the old is to bring in some new. And, if you’re like us, you’ve been searching for months for the perfect outfit to wear as the clock counts down and we welcome everything 2017 has to offer.

Luckily, just in time for the new year, we have new Nili Lotan available in store!

With these sleek looks, we are ready to kick 2017 off with determination, positivity, and, of course, great style.

Christmas Came Early: New Arrivals from R13

We have to admit, we’re the type to sneak a peek at the presents under the tree before Christmas morning. We love getting gifts but we don’t really want to wait to open them. That’s why we were so excited when one of our favorite brands arrived in store. Of course we opened it right away! Inside that generic shipping box was one of the best early holiday presents, new R13 arrivals.

Part of what we love most about getting presents is being able to share them! We’ve styled our favorite new R13 arrivals here for you. Come by the store to shop, or check them out online. Maybe even get yourself a holiday gift to open on Christmas Day. We won’t blame you if you peek beforehand.
