“A woman is closest to being naked when she is well-dressed.” That’s Coco Chanel speaking. We’re not saying that naked is the ideal state for women to be in. Though surely some readers would argue that, it’s undeniably difficult to pilot a space shuttle, discover radium, or serve as Secretary of State without wearing at least something. But if nudity is an ideal because it represents total comfort and being at home in our bodies without constant fidgeting or adjusting or smoothing, then perhaps Chanel was onto something. If we can find clothes that are simple, comfortable, and elegant enough that we don’t have to think twice once we walk out the door—isn’t that what we’re striving for?
If so, mark your calendar for this Friday, when the new Alice Jane store opens in Baltimore. Since 2009, Alice Jane has specialized in classic and affordable fashion—beginning with unique jewelry and accessories, and now offering full “head to toe” fashion for woman and men. Much of the stuff at Alice Jane has a sort of “Boho chic” thing going on. That means that besides being classic, pretty, and feminine, the clothing is also highly wearable, comfortable, and perfect for fall layering.
The grand opening of Alice Jane takes place this Friday, November 9thfrom Noon-6pm. The shop is located at 1407 Clarkview Road, Suite 500 in Baltimore.
