Spring Is Here!

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

Spring has officially sprung here at Meadow, and we are loving all of our new shipments!  One of my favorite parts about the fashion biz is seeing what the new trends are going to be for the season.  I admit that not all trends are easy to pull off, but by tailoring them to your personal style you are sure to be a fashionista this Spring!

 Some of the hottest looks from the Spring 2013 runways were black and white, stripes, anything bright, lace & leather! It is almost time to put the chunky sweaters away and start adding one or two of these Spring must have trends to your wardrobes.

 

 

Whether it is day or night don’t be afraid to rock your favorite Spring trends! 

XOXO

Winter White

Friday, November 16th, 2012

We haven’t exactly had a taste of Winter here in Texas ….but we are enjoying the Fall weather and I am anxiously awaiting the first big chill…even if it only happens once!  One of my favorite colors for the holiday season is Winter white.  Who says white can’t be worn after Labor Day?  If it is done right, it can be worn year round!  Pair your white jeans with a chunky black sweater and your favorite riding boots, grab a pair of off white jeans and wear the color from head to toe.  So crisp, classy and clean!  Whether you have a winter white sweater, jeans, a dress or a fabulous coat, wear it this holiday season and you will sparkle!  Winter White translates well into a wardrobe and into your home.  Here are a few of my favorite examples of how to wear white in the winter!

 

 

 

 

 

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: 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!

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!
