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 

 

SO VERY THANKFUL!

Wednesday, November 21st, 2012

This year Thanksgiving has snuck up on me as I am sure it has for many of you.  Every now and then we all need to stop what we are doing to realize just how lucky we are. 

 

I am thankful for so many things this Thanksgiving and everyday for that matter.  Here is my short list of happiness…it would take a long time to list everything!

 I AM THANKFUL FOR…..
 
1.  The most funny and adorable 2 year old little girl in the world……and the loving and handsome husband that comes with her….they are tied for first!
 

2. Healthy family and friends

3.  MEADOW  and all of our AMAZING customers and friends.  Meadow would not be what it is without you!  Thank you for all of your support the past three years!  It has been incredible getting to know each and every one of you!  Being able to do what I love is a true gift and we wouldn’t be here without you! 

4.  The best employees that I could have ever dreamed of having!  They are my brain on days that I am on overload!  We can truly complete each others thoughts!  They have helped make Meadow what it is today and I wouldn’t be able to do it without them!

So that is my short list….I could go on and on, but at the end of the day….friends and family matter the most!   I hope everyone takes a moment to be Thankful for all of lifes blessings this week! 

HAPPY HAPPY THANKSGIVING! 

Enjoy your feast with your nearest and dearest!

XOXO ~ Susanna

 

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

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!

Bubbles & Balloons

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

Summer is flying by around here.  Ella turned TWO a little over a month ago and I am just now sitting down to tell you about the details!  She had the best little birthday party….. Bob and I had just as much fun as she did!   

I can hardly believe that so much time has flown by….I know that is so cliche…but it is really crazy.  She went from being the cutest  little baby to being a gorgeous little girl in what seems to be overnight.  I wish I could freeze her right here….she is so funny, such a little chatter box,  full of life and laughter, and has the best personality!!!

We didn’t have a 1st birthday party, so this year we decided to go all out.  We had some of her friends (and ours) over for a little backyard playdate and everyone had a great time!

The theme was BUBBLES & BALLOONS!  Two of Ella’s absolute favorite things.  I can’t drive past the grocery store without her screaming for a BALLOON!  We entertained the kids with balloons, a balloonist, tons of bubble machines, lunch & we entertained the parents with morning cocktails….mimosas and screwdrivers!  The back yard was filled with balloons…which I was a little nervous about.  I wasn’t sure if the kids would cry when they all started popping or if they would have fun…..but since Ella didn’t cry I thought I would give it a shot.  SO GLAD I DID…  THEY LOVED IT!!!  I wish we had 200 more…they loved popping them in the grass.  They were giggling & chasing them around like crazy.  The balloonist made whatever the kids wanted her to make….they loved her & the bubbles machines were a huge hit too!     

Bob and I hand delivered a balloon in a box to all of the little ones that were invited to the party.  We gave the boys a yellow polka dot balloon wrapped with green and turquoise ribbon and the girls got a pink polka dot balloon wrapped with pink and green ribbon. 

Here are a few of the 400+ pics from the party!!!

 

 This is my favorite picture from the whole party!!!  A friend of mine took this  and I’m obsessed with everything about it….the little wrinkles in her nose, her squinted eyes, her fingers, her little laugh, the bubbles…the moment was totally captured!  THANKS ASHLEY!!!  

Ella had so much fun at her party….she is still singing “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” to herself and blowing out anything that looks remotely like a candle!

If anyone is looking for a theme for your two year old’s birthday party…..I highly recommend BUBBLES & BALLOONS!!!!  Everyone had a blast!  Hope you are all having a great summer!

XOXO,

Susanna

 

 

 

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!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

AND LAST BUT FAR FROM LEAST :)   Here is Ella (right) with her cousin Lillian (left)…AKA Little Orphan Annie with those curls…. on Easter Sunday…..cutest Pink Chicken’s I have ever seen!!!  Only four months apart and they are like sisters!

If you need a baby gift or something for your little Pink Chicken….don’t hesitate to call us or e-mail us!  We will ship it straight to you!

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???
