Received a few new dresses from Shoshanna today!!! I love the pleated detail navy dress. Its got a great deep v back, and is a perfect all year round dress! The ruffle shirt neck dress in black cotton is such an easy basic. I have a similar one from DVF from a few years ago that I have worn to death, and I think this one can be my replacement piece! Seriously, you don't even know how much use you can get out of this dress! Also in, is the dolman cap sleeve tee dress in black and cream print detail. Again, another great staple piece for your wardrobe! You can wear this dress day to night depending on how you accessorize! Enjoy!

We are so excited here at Sarah Shaw to introduce a new line for us called Mint by Jodi Arnold. We just got in today our first shipment which included two beautiful silk dresses and an adorable tee! The water color belted dress is sooooo stunning! I love all the different colors used in the palette! And the pewter metallic belt that comes with it is so cute I would totally use it for other outfits and not just this dress! The strapless tiered plum dress is like a fairy tale! I cannot wait to see someone try this one on! And the ruffle tee feels so yummy and has a lot of length to it which I LOVE! No need to layer a tank with it! Enjoy!!!
So you know Fall is right around the corner when cashmere turtlenecks start popping up in stores! And yes, I know how gorgeous the weather is right now and how hot its going to be this weekend, but you know that drizzly gloomy weather will be inevitably make its way back! And why not be prepared by getting your new cashmere pieces now before the smart ones snag them up! Two great basics that are a necessity in our San Francisco wardrobes just came in. A great long turtleneck in both black and bankers grey. It has a fantastic ribbing feature on the bottom of the torso and sleeves that give it an extra something. Also in, is the deep cowl neck tunic in evergreen. I love this piece because you can wear it with so many different colors: black, grey, chocolate, etc. Enjoy!!

Introducing our new Happy Hour Shopping Night at Sarah Shaw!! Come sip on complimentary bubbles from 6-7pm every Thursday while shopping the night away! Starting tomorrow, June 25th! And what a great week to start it off since it coincides with our Fab Summer Sale! Receive 25-75% off the majority of our inventory! Come out and celebrate the joy of living!!!
Here's some more Pre-Fall pieces to get us geared up for the next season! Two tops and a dress from Tibi came in yesterday. I love the cream puff sleeve blouse with the criss cross neckline. Its a great twist to a staple piece!(No pun intended) The aztec print cami is so much fun! Pair it with white for the summer and then wear it with darker separates for the Fall! And the braided black and cream dress is so gorgeous! It reminds me of that Valentino dress Julia Roberts wore to the Oscars oh so many years ago. Very classic piece that will never go out of style! Enjoy!!

As some of you may know, I was just in LA for our buying trip for the upcoming Holiday Season! And I just wanted to let everyone know what's new and exciting for Holiday!!! First off, the 80's are back in a major way! I know, I know. Not exactly the era that everyone wants to recreate, especially if you were a part of it the first time around, but let me tell you, its going to be quite fun! Neons are the big colors for the season. Whether it be yellow, pink, or orange. You can use them as an accent color with your jewelry or handbags, like Rebecca Minkoff is doing, or go all out with a whole ensemble! I'm actually very excited for this and have already purchased some neon nail polish to rev up for the trend! Also very 80's, the accented and over the top shoulders are back. Elizabeth & James has this AMAZING ivory blazer with accentuated shoulders and a black cummerbund belt that I am going BANANA'S over! (It's going to be a long 4 months until I can see it again!) And Robert Rodriguez was ALL about the shoulders this time around, using puff shoulders for button down blouses, jackets and one shoulder tops and dresses as well.
We also are trying out a new edgier look for the store. Great new price point and some younger lines that we are very excited to introduce to you ladies! Some new ones for us are: ADAM, Rory Beca, Mara Hoffman, Veda leather, and Geren Ford.
Here are some pictures from the Fall/Holiday designer runway shows that show some of the inspiration we can look forward to! Enjoy!!!
The new DVF pieces that we got in are a great transition into Fall clothing...I know what you're thinking, "Fall ALREADY???!!!" Well yes, lets be frank, Summer doesn't last that long in our neck of the woods! So buying Pre-Fall clothing is not that far of a stretch! The magenta ruffle wrap dress is one of my favs! I love the fact that its just so dang easy to throw on and look fabulous! And any dress that has pockets is a done deal in my mind!! The geometric blouse with tie front is just a tiny step towards this Fall's big trend "80's"! Ahaha, I know. But trust me, its going to be great! I love the black mini skirt with wide waistband. Super fun and easy! The fuschia v-neck cap sleeve dress is a great day to night dress, as is the cap sleeve belted plum dress! Wear them both to work with some pumps and a cardi, and then go out to cocktails with some strappy heels and chunky jewelry!! Enjoy!!

I am VERY excited about these new pieces from Gwen Stefani's line L.A.M.B!! Too cute for words! The striped red, navy and cream tank is perfect for that hot summer day! It's that old crinkled tee-shirt fabric that just makes life so much better! Haha. Also in, is the grey and red stripe sweater. Super light weight and would look great either dressed up for work with a pencil skirt, or more casually worn with denim! The plaid pencil skirt with side rouching is FAB!! It's tan with a hint of orange in it, and I have not seen it on anyone yet, but based upon her past pencil skirts, Gwen knows how to make them fit every body shape! And last, but certainly not least, is the criss cross suit dress with a braided brown belt. I am DYING to see this one on! Would any of you like to be my fit model???? Enjoy!

Ummm....words cannot express how much I LOVE this purse! New in from Rebecca Minkoff is the Rocker! Nothing is hotter than black leather and gold studs...well, maybe Johnny Depp. Haha. Perfect for a night on the town when you want to look sexy and glam all in one! Snag it up before I get the chance to! Enjoy!!!
Great new items from Milly! Love love the seashell ivory shift dress! Sarah tried this on yesterday and it was STUNNING! The chiffon orange and olive print tunic is great paired over the wide leg olive trousers. Light weight for summer and a great outfit if you're heading to Marin this weekend! The chain halter dress is always a hit and has made her way back to Sarah Shaw! Love the print and the fact that it's conservative from the front and party in the back!!! Enjoy!!!
We are very happy to say that Beth Bowley is back in the store!!! Her quirky fun pieces are the perfect pick me up for the dreary weather we are experiencing! It's a reality that summer is here and we should pack a weekend bag and head to Napa with Beth in our bags!!! Not only are her pieces fun and practical, they also are an amazing deal!!! Everything I am about to tell you about is under $253! Because every gal deserves a little retail pick me up right?? First off, the silk rose neck blouse in green is to die for! SO much fun! You can wear it conservatively under a suit, or spice it up with some skinny jeans! Love the cotton trench coat in fuschia! Really nice summer jacket that will add an instant pop of color! The peony print blouse is so adorable and looks fab paired with white denim! You will look oh so chic wearing it to a family picnic in the park! And last, but certainly not least, is the silk rosette dress in green. I love the neck line and the fact that its just an easy dress to wear! Drapes beautifully on the body and would be fantastic for a day time wedding! Enjoy!!!!
