Professional stylists demonstrate ways to use show-stopping, one-of-a-kind pieces to make a fashion statement.

Handcrafted fashion is as relevant today as it was when the American Craft Council began its shows in the 1970s. To highlight the American Craft Council’s network of talented artists, the council will partner with regional stylists for Style Slam.

The Little Shoebox Suede Bucket Bag Giveaway

We will email Jaci with instructions on how to claim the prize. 

The holiday season is upon us, which means plenty of occasions to put a little extra thought into what you’re wearing. Whether the celebration calls for formal wear or jeans, ’tis the season to dress to impress.

As any fashionista will tell you, accessories make the outfit. At The Little Shoebox in Ruxton, the team pays close attention to accessories from head to toe. Shoes, of course, anchor an ensemble, but decorating the rest of the body – from scarves to hats to bags – is just as important.

The shop has piles of great new fall/winter accessories in stock, including cozy hats and bright fur scarves. One of our must-haves: the sweet suede fringe bucket bag, shown above. The cross-body bag is roomy enough for more than a phone and a lipstick, but small enough not to overwhelm any outfit.

This week, The Little Shoebox offers the suede fringe bag as a giveaway (an $85 value). To enter to win, leave a comment with your name and your favorite holiday tradition. A winner will be chosen at random on Monday, November 30 at noon.

What Will You Wear this Season? Fall Trend Report from Green Spring Station

Sweater Bottle Insulators at South Moon Under


Bottle Insulators

catch of the day fish (2)We try to keep it classy here at Catch of Day, but of course, we wouldn’t be Baltimoreans without a taste for kitsch. And as block parties and barbecues start to get underway this season, you’re sure to see a variety of beer cozies on parade at any outdoor affair worth its salt. Beer cozies don’t always project an image of good taste, but maybe that’s because you’re starting from a baseline of drinking canned beer. Upgrade to bottles and you’re ready for the amazing line of bottle insulators by Freaker, that have just arrived at South Moon Under.

Swinging into Spring Trends at Local Boutiques


Ah, spring. Sunshine, flowers, warm weather. We’ve been waiting for this for too long, right? And yet, I don’t think I’m alone when I say that lately, whenever there’s a warm, sunny day, I actually have a moment of being terrified—upset, even. I’m so used to my winter wardrobe (my uniform, I’ve taken to calling it) that I’m actually not ready for something that doesn’t involve my well-worn layers of drab-colored wool. So consider this as much a self-help (as in, help for myself) mission as a public service announcement. Spring is here, and it’s time to re-boot the wardrobe, and it’s been so long that we should probably seek the help of a professional. Or several.  That’s why we checked in with some of the boutiques at Green Spring Station and asked them each for their one top pick for Spring 2013.


For those who want to go Easter egg hunting in style (warning: this may have to mean avoiding grass stains, mud, and using one’s shirt as a napkin), the PGA Official kids line arrives at Wee Chic! The line is spot on with one of 2013’s biggest trends in kids’ clothing. According to parenting.com, this season is all about “pretty patterns, hipster formal and lots of yellow!” And getting the little ones into these formal looking duds doesn’t have to be a chore. Wee Chic’s dedication to carrying only comfortable cuts in high quality fabrics means that this collection can satisfy both you and your child’s fashion standards. Created in collaboration with design genius Paul Nguyen, the collection is described by Nguyen himself as “country club meets California cool.” Now available for boys and girls at Wee Chic.


Well, there’s always one rule-breaker in every crowd. When asked for their one (we repeat, one) top spring item, the enthusiasts at FRESH! Boutique just couldn’t whittle it down. Well, the more the merrier, we say. FRESH’s take:

“First, we are really excited to showcase Max & Cleo’s strapless print dress this season. Prints are extremely in, as well as the high-low cut of the dress; This dress is sure to be a hot item.”

Indeed, Fashion Week 2013 could have easily been renamed “Prints on Parade Week,” as far as we could tell. Everyone from Paul & Joe to Moschino had gorgeous, colorful prints going up and down the runway. Other pieces FRESH just happens to be excited about:

Bailey 44‘s black and nude Madrid Dress is heading the leather and lace theme that is expected to take off for Spring. With its leather bust and black lace and nude bottom, Bailey 44 has created one of our favorite items for this trend. “

The dress combines the luxe lace that NY Mag’s thecut.com cites as a big trend this year, along with the luxe leather that Glamour.com names among the most wearable trends for Spring 2013.

“Finally, pastels have become more saturated for this Spring and Black Halo does a beautiful job with their ice colored Dallas Dress; it is definitely a classic Spring look with a twist.”

The cool, seafoam shade is exactly the color The Cut reports to be the “in” color of the season.


This spring, fashion website Refinery 29 has been pushing espadrilles, and who are we to argue? Meanwhile, the folks at Matava Shoes tell us that vibrant colors will be all the rage for spring; so how to get the best of both worlds? With the Vidoretta “Gita,” an espardrille wedge with an orange suede upper and adorned with a matching flower accent for $135 that puts you on trend for spring and summer. Though your toes might shiver to think of these right now, in a few weeks, you’ll be glad you’ve got them.
