Wild About Staying Warm

Cate Mezyk - January 8, 2016

If there’s one thing you can count on here in Minnesota, it’s that temperatures are bound to plunge at some point during our winter season. We’ve been pretty spoiled thus far this season, with nary a sub-zero day yet! But they are coming people. Hello, high of -1 on Sunday!! But you’ll be ready, because we’ve got lots of cold weather gear in the shop to …

Style These Days

Tammy Hiveley - February 18, 2015

My style these days is mostly comfy cozy mixed with a little casual flair. Working in the shop has forced me to choose my outfits based on comfort yet cute-ability. I’m oftentimes freezing so I need as many warm layers as possible! Hense the amazing amount of scarves I own. Like this one… remember it from last week? I’m hooked on this Vintage Gypsy scarf that my …

Snuggle Me Snuggly

Tammy Hiveley - January 28, 2015

Snuggle me Snuggly. Snuggle Me Snuggly is one of my family’s favorite bedtime books. I’ve read it so many nights over the last twelve years that we’ve started reciting the entire book page by page without even having it in our hands. Here we go… straight from memory… Not sure if I’ll get all the randomness correct but it’s a fun challenge anyway. Snuggle Me Snuggly, …

Just Call Me Rudolph

Tammy Hiveley - January 14, 2015

I’ve started branching out of my comfort zone and wearing things I normally wouldn’t. All because I get bored and this is how I entertain myself. I was loving the layers I put on the other day. Wool shorts (which I’ve had in my closet for YEARS and have never worn) paired with lots of top layers to bundle my perpetually cold body. I felt the look worked. But …

It Just Takes Confidence

Tammy Hiveley - January 7, 2015

Fashion is fun. I enjoy adding the unexpected. Tulle, denim and polka dots. Why not. I have a suggestion for you for the new year. Look in your closet and DON’T look at each item for what it is. Look at each item as a color or a texture or a pattern. Then match up your outfits by combining the unexpected. Use a belt as a …

Black and White and Red All Over

Cate Mezyk - December 22, 2014

These days, I’m all about dressing for comfort. So it’s nothing but layers for me. Leggings, a tank dress, sweater on top – it’s a cozy as pajamas (and a little more professional when working in the shop). Even my shoe height is getting a little lower – only 2.5 inches on these babies, cuz if I’m standing for hours I don’t want these feet …

Our New Neighbor

Tammy Hiveley - December 17, 2014

Our new neighbor, Bob, has the best photography backdrop. It’s old. It’s real. It’s alive with business. It’s down right cool. Now Bob and his sons might think we are complete nutso but we don’t care. Because when you can open up your side door, step into another world and snaps some amazing pics… you just have to take advantage of it, right? Right? So, Bob, …
