Step Into Fall With The Right Footwear

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012
Fall Shoes

Now that Fall has finally arrived it is time to put away the Tkees sandals and slide on some Joie booties. In the store right now we are all loving the Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent tall “Winthrop” riding boots, they are the perfect combination of classic and effortless style. If you are wanting to make a statement when you walk in a room then the Diane Von Furstenberg tall black boot is perfect for you! Since we are all sandal girls here at MEADOW and it is still warm here in Texas, flats have been a great fall shoe option. Everyone has been obsessed with all of the Melissa flats that are in the store right now, especially the leopard smoking slipper pictured above.

So whether you are ready to jump into a pair of tall boots or perfectly printed flats we have a variety of fall shoe options to fit your style. Don’t forget to share your photos of your Meadow finds on Instagram @meadow_boutique

Designer Spotlight: Evocateur

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

My favorite thing about putting on a show stopping accessory is that it tells a story, and that is why I love Evocateur.  Each one of a kind piece is handmade using 22k gold leaf or sterling silver leaf over brass, each piece takes 5 days to create! Evocateur uses a variety of unique processes, such as a hand gilding technique to ensure the most high quality and beautiful collections. Sometimes less is more when it comes to accessories, but with that comes the need for every detail to be absolute perfection.  Here at Meadow our jewelry cases are overflowing with this type of perfection…and we couldn’t be happier to share them with you!

Take a peek at some of our favorite Evocateur pieces below:

 

 

  

Designer Spotlight: KELLY WEARSTLER

Friday, August 10th, 2012

I am so excited that Kelly Wearstler will be adorning the racks of Meadow for Fall 2012!! She has been influencing the interior design world for more than a decade, designing the interiors of resorts and hotels around the world and debuted her fashion label in Fall of 2011 (thank goodness because we are obsessed with it!). She has published three books and done collaborations with companies such as Bergdorf Goodman and Lee Jofa fabrics….AMAZING fabric!!! She’s incredibly well dressed (one of Vogue’s picks for best dressed of the year) and her cool vibe is certainly reflected in her line!

Here is a peek into the glamorous world of everything Kelly!

Pink Chicken

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012

 

For those of you who have been in the store,  you probably already know that we carry one of the CUTEST baby lines that I have ever seen!  I found this line at one of my favorite stores….BARNEY’s NY:)….  back when I was pregnant with our little munchkin!  This is our one and only baby line and everyone is totally obsessed.  Who doesn’t love a little feminine BOHO  Baby?  It is the perfect eclectic mix of vintage and modern!  Everything Pink Chicken screams fun color, adorable prints and easy styles that little girls love to live in…even easier for the mama’s because we don’t have to think…grab the perfect dress and a little pair of sandals and your little one is all set. 

Here are a few of the dresses we got in this Spring!

Sheridan French

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

If you have been following our blog…you probably read my post last year about one of our favorite designers SHERIDAN FRENCH!!!  If you haven’t heard of her….here she is!   

She is the cutest thing ever and not to mention designs amazing clothes! She is all about chic and easy to wear silouhettes made with hand woven and dyed fabrics created in Bali.  She uses bright ikat designs adorned with colored trim and embellishments!  I have really gotten to know Sheridan the past couple of seasons and she is so much fun!   Her personality is just as fabulous as her designs!!!  She lives in Fort Worth, TX with husband and two children…soon to be three.  How is she doing all of this….a career that is blowing up, and raising her little munchkins?  Find out here on her blog, “The Southern Eclectic”  (http://sheridanfrench.blogspot.com/ ) this is her life as an open book and is definitely worth checking out.  You will fall in love with Sheridan as soon as you start to read!  This girl has a lot on her plate with two babies….another one on the way and a full time job!  She handles her biz on her own and I give her a ton of credit for being able to juggle it as well as she does.  We can’t wait to see what else is to come for this talented designer.  She may take a much needed break after baby #3 arrives in the next few weeks…..but you haven’t seen the last of Sheridan French! 

 

Here are some of our favorite styles for 2012!  Hope you love them as much as we do…which one is your fav???

 

SPRING TRENDS WE ARE LOVING

Monday, March 5th, 2012

We picked out a few of our go-to trends for this Spring.  Strut the streets in these and you’re sure to be looking stand-out fab this season.

COLOR BLOCKING

It seems like all the designers are gravitating towards this effortlessly chic style again and again.  Made by pairing bright, bold colors that are sewn together to make one fabulously dramatic piece.   Don’t be afraid to throw in a little neon or pastel to mix it up this season!  You can also style the trend yourself by pairing two (or more) solid colored garments together and voilà!  To pump it up even more mix in different colored accessories (shoe, handbag, belt, or jewelry)!  Don’t forget to get yourself a pair of colored jeans….or maybe a couple of pairs!!!  Have fun with it!

 

 ANORAKS

This style of coat is often spoken of  interchangably with the parka jacket. Stylistically speaking, anoraks have cuffs on the sleeves and a distinctive waist, which cinches in the mid-section for an oh so flattering look!  This waterproof jacket will not only keep your hair dry with it’s hood, but will highlight everyone’s feminine curves. It seems that many designers have created an updated version of the traditional anorak for those spring showers or just to throw on and run around in.  One of our all time favs pictured below by Ali Ro…it comes in a variety of colors.   We stock them in black and khaki.  Call us if you would like to RESERVE ONE….we have a shipment arriving soon!  These  jackets truly fly off the racks year round…they make every outfit look oh so chic.  I have one in black and I can throw it on over anything and it totally transforms my look!  People stop me all the time asking me where I got my jacket.  I must say that seeing the model pictured below makes me want the navy too!

BOLD PRINTS

Diane Von Furstenberg is the queen of bold prints and other designers have been taking notice. Meadow’s racks are filled with bright colored frocks with stand out prints.  A bold print can be easily paired with denim or any neutral for a quick, fresh outfit or stand alone on a dress. 

ORANGES/TANGERINES

Tangerine is the color for Spring! Whether on a blouse or an accessory, we will be seeing this bright hue all over the streets.  Update your wardrobe with a pop of color! 

PASTELS

Not only are brights as popular as ever, but designers are mixing in more pastel hues this spring to mix it up. Designers are modernizing the pastel by infusing them in prints and updated silhouettes bringing the rather dated pastel from zero to hero! An updated pastel is not just for Easter this year!

Sedgwick Handbags

Wednesday, December 14th, 2011

 LADYLIKE WITH AN EDGE.

             Childhood friends, Ashley Baker and Carly Beck are in their second season of designing handbags that are classic, casual & effortlessly CHIC!  Their Fall collection can be found here at MEADOW and every piece is amazing.  I have yet to see a handbag line at this price point pay such close attention to quality and detail.  These are truly bags that you will have for a lifetime.    

After working 15 years in the New York fashion industry the two have joined together to form their collection of leather goods known as Sedgwick. The friendly duo debuted Sedgwick in Spring 2011 while working their current jobs, Carly as the brand director for brands such as Diane Von Furstenberg and Steven Alan and Ashley as the executive editor for The Daily Front Row!!!!   The pair named their line after the county in which they grew up, Sedgwick County, Kansas….in Witchita.  

Ashley Baker & Carly Beck- Sedgwick owners

 

            The collection’s style is faint for both the ladylike and the wild at heart. Sedgwick prides itself on the value and quality of their leather handbags. They strive to create easy to carry silhouettes ranging from $250 – $600. All of their manufacturing is done in Manhattan, NY!  

Here is a peak at some of the pieces you can find here at Meadow!   I am honored to be one of the lucky stores carrying this up and coming handbag line and to be working with such talented designers.  The clutches are to die for & they really hold all of the necessities for a night on the town!  I have one and love carrying it out for a night out with my hubby or friends.  They work well back to cocktail dresses just as easily as they do with a pair of jeans.  This line is so chic and versatile!

Two Minds are always better than ONE!!!

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011

I am obsessing over Of Two Minds Fall 2011 collection!  If you haven’t already introduced yourself to this designer now is the time!  Last year the L.A. based clothing line took on designer, Sunjoo Moon and the results are gorgeous!  I have been following this line for several seasons and it wasn’t until this season that it really made a huge impression on me.  The attention to detail and quality that Moon has put into each and every piece really is remarkable coming from a contemporary designer.  This Fall 2011 you will see native prints, loose silhouettes, leather & textured knits…a little SoCal hippie meets urban chic is their style for this season!  The jackets in this collection were particularly stunning….each style was luxurious & perfectly tailored!  It was hard to choose one jacket from the collection…but this leather beauty below is the one I chose for MEADOW!  I hope you like it!

ENJOY!

Mi Casa!!!

Monday, August 1st, 2011

I am a wee bit late in my reporting on some exciting news…we bought a NEW HOUSE!!!  We closed back in May, but since then we have been doing some serious remodeling and it is taking up any extra energy that I have on reserve.  Who am I kidding….I am running on Starbucks these days! 

The house was built in the 20′s, and is a two-story Spanish Mediterranean  house.  We refinished all of the hardwood floors, painted all of the walls, painted the kitchen cabinets, added on a laundry room to the back of the house, remodeled Ella’s bathroom, and remodeled the back house.  Our next project will be painting the exterior and some serious landscaping!  The addition is still a work in progress so we haven’t been able to move in yet….crossing my fingers that it is soon!!!  I will post pics when some of the mess gets cleaned up!

My first design project now that construction is in full swing is Ella’s room!  I never really decorated a proper nursery for her when she first hatched….we knew we weren’t going to be here very long.  Needless to say I think I threw it together in literally two weeks with things that we had in storage from my sisters babies, some of my parents hidden treasures in their storage units and a few odds and ends!  So….it’s time and I am going all out!  Seeing as she is already 14 months I am going to softly transition her into a little girls room! 

If you know me….you know I LOVE color & print!  Here is the rug I am currently OBSESSING OVER…..this website is amazing and I have been reading amazing things about this company.  They will customize any size, make a rug with color swatches you select from a color palette in your own home….the possibilities are limitless!  Their services and fabulousness don’t come cheap….but I love rugs…they can make such a statement in a room and I think I could splurge for this IKAT beauty!
