Scarlet & the cool-girl kicks

It’s a rare occurrence when I go into a store and want everything on the racks. Like it never happens as a rule. Scarlet in West Little Rock is an exception to that rule. At nine years old, Scarlet is better the ever. The shop recently opened a new storefront designed by the brilliant Heather Owens of Georgia James (you can find heather & a mini GJ shop within Scarlet); a relaunched website featuring a web store with brands like Elizabeth & James, Rebecca Minkoff and J Brand alongside the Scarlet brand capsule collection.
Brimming with leather skinnies, cutout dresses, flat bill caps and fur jackets, Scarlet has the quintessential fall wardrobe for the coolest girl you know.

The clothes, bags and baubles are drool worthy but the shoes – oh the shoes – I’m continually obsessed with the selection that owner Jeanne curates. You may know that I rarely buy new pieces, strictly adhering to a diet of vintage & thrift, but this diet doesn’t really apply to footwear. In fact, I’ll go so far as to say that shoes are almost always best when bought new.

Until now, you could only peruse & purchase this amazingness in store. I feel like it’s my duty to inform you that you will be able to buy them online as of Thursday, 10/31.

And you’re welcome.

I love adding a collar to an otherwise simple ensemble. I have vintage sequin, beaded and knit collars but this particular one is from urban outfitters.

COLLABO! Emily’s One Man Band

a lovely little lady named Emily asked me to work it in front of the camera for her rather wildy successful etsy shop. obviously, I obliged. We had a great afternoon full of fringe, sequins, denim and flying through the air with the greatest of ease.
Some of her stuff is recycled and some is upcycled. The amazing leather fringe necklace and fabulous bustiers are Emily’s handiwork.
