Sweata Weatha

Cate Mezyk - September 19, 2017
Oversized chenille sweater

It’s my favorite time of year – sweater weather (or, according to old school Saturday Night Live episodes, sweata weatha). The textures that are currently available for this year are unbelievably soft and cozy, including this awesome chenille number that’s a new favorite of mine. I threw it on with leggings and a pair of running shoes the other day for a casual day of …

iCloud, uCloud, please don’tCloud

Velvet floral dress

My son and I share an iCloud. He saved up to buy himself an iPod Touch (we matched funds), and he’s all set up and good to go on it. Davis is remarkably good at finding new little tricks for it – there are things that you can do on an iPhone and/or iPod that I never even realized were an option. There have been …

Velvet Teddy Bear

Boyfriend jeans and a velvet tee

Remember a few years back, when Ruben Studdard was all over your tv screen? After his American Idol win, he was a big deal. They called him the Velvet Teddy Bear. Well, now you can call me the Velvet Teddy Bear too. I might not have the 6’3″ frame or a Grammy nomination, but I do have this velvet tee. Close enough, right? Velvet is …

All The Feels

Tammy Hiveley - August 4, 2017
Chambray striped dress. crisp. clean. perfectly chic

It’s been a hard morning. I’ve been crying on and off for most of it. All the feels going on over here. Excitement. Nerves. Proud mom. Sadness. Gut wrenching aches. Heart palpitations. You name it – I think I’ve felt it today. A teary-eyed friend, walking my same path, took the words right out of my mouth as we hugged our babies goodbye. “It’s like …

Hat Tricks

Striped dress with crochet neckline

So, we have these hats that everybody seems to want. It’s taken us by surprise, but hey – we are happy to keep them coming. You want Minnesota patch hats? We’ll make them for you! Since I don’t sew, our strategy thus far has been that our shop employees cut out the patches, I iron them on, and then Tammy sews them on. The only …

Date Me

Crochet detailed tank

I sometimes miss the days when my kiddos were little. With their little squishy cheeks and innocent little faces, I couldn’t have loved them more. And yet, I do. I love them more and more all the time. And I love the stage that we are currently in. One of the reasons I love it so much is that I actually get to date my …

Davis Week 2.0

Cate Mezyk - July 26, 2017
Mint dress with crochet details

My son has spent a lot of time at the dance studio over the years, watching his sisters practice. And for the very first time since they began, he loves their chosen sport. Not because he suddenly has an appreciation for the art form of dance itself. Nope – it’s because they try out for two long weeks each summer. Those two long weeks have …

Please, Mom?

Cate Mezyk - July 24, 2017

One of the problems I find with co-owning a shop is that my kids appear to believe that everything in there should be free to them. “Please, Mom?” they say. “Can we have this?” No matter how many times I try to explain the concept to them (no, I actually pay to have these items here, and I actually have to sell them all in …
