Dress Please!!

Fall in LOVE with these new dresses from MINT! They are just stunning! The attention to detail is amazing! Like the cascading ombre bead work on the taupe shift dress is impeccable! I love that even though this dress is beaded, you can wear it to a dressier day event or an evening black tie event. Very versatile and it's definitely an all year rounder! The taupe tie waist dress is unbelievable! Very figure flattering as it hugs in all the right places and covers all the rest. And the grey spaghetti strap ruffle dress is TO DIE FOR!!!! I love that it has the exposed zipper and is a little shorter to make it a tad edgier. I personally would love to see this one paired with a cropped leather jacket and some fab booties! Enjoy!!!

Getting Ready For Fall...

With DVF! I am so excited to move on from frilly summer frocks and move into yummy and warm Fall clothing! There's something about Fall that is so inviting....The smell of fireplaces burning in the air, getting darker earlier, and the joy in knowing that the Holidays are just around the corner! (Yes, I do know it's still July...but soon enough Fall will be here!)What's a better way to get ready for it all than starting your new Fall wardrobe with these DVF pieces!?! I love the bold floral print that DVF chose to do in this poet sleeve silk blouse. Just a stunning piece and a great investment as it would look fantastic paired with white denim now and darker denim in the Fall! The sleeveless silk ruffle blouse in olive is beautiful! Leave it out or tuck it in, either way would work! And of course, who doesn't need a new highwaisted black pencil skirt?! I love the fabric that she chose to do, as it gives in all the right places and would travel fantasticly as it won't wrinkle! And my favorite of all, the black cashmere turtleneck sweater! Ruching on the sleeves and the triple fold neck makes this sweater a must have! Forget those boring turtlenecks you have at home and step it up a notch with this one!!! Enjoy!!

Brighten Up!!!

These 3 new dresses from Tibi are to die for!!! First off, how GORGEOUS is the yellow Anastasia beaded dress??!! I mean, come on now!!! This dress is meant to make women stand out of the crowd! The detail of the beading is just impeccable! And I love that art really has influenced many designers this year! The firebird shift dress is a wearable proof of just that! The 3/4 sleeves with the open slit is so flattering on the body, as it shows just enough skin to leave more to the imagination. And the wool jersey sleeveless Norma dress in fuschia is my personal fav! Such an adorable dress, and super comfortable. I know I would wear this dress a ton as it definitely is a day to night dress! Enjoy!!

Buttons Buttons Buttons!!

That's what Elizabeth & James knows how to do! I don't think I can give them any more praise than what I have already done, so I am just going to describe the pieces we just got in from them and you will see how genius these girls are!! First off, we received the long sleeve schoolboy shirt in royal and white stripes. LOVE this shirt, and so do most of you since it continues to sell out each time we get one in! The back button detail is so flattering, as it cinches in at the waist. The square tee in oatmeal is so much fun I can't even handle it! The fabric is seriously the softest fabric I have EVER felt! It's that great edgy look but done in a sophisticated way! And last, but certainly not least, is the black double breasted blazer. Rouched sleeves and impeccable button placement is what makes this piece a stand out item! It will certainly make a t-shirt and jeans look polished and hip! Enjoy!!!

Down Tiger!

I am in LOVE with the dress we just got in from DVF!! Its a purple tiger print shift dress with a criss cross drape back. I imagine it worn casually with black gladiator sandals or dressed up with a black blazer and some booties! Also in, is the black see through Alcott blouse. We have this in a geometric print as well, and its been such a great staple piece that we decided to do it again in all black. The new wrap dress in Passage to India print is absolutely stunning! I love that she did this dress in cotton fabric, it makes it so much more comfortable and versatile! Enjoy!!!

New Jay Godfrey!!

So we just received a gorgeous dress by Jay Godfrey today! Its called the Flora Dress and its in a rich amethyst silk fabric. With spaghetti straps and a rouched waste line, this dress is sure to flatter many different body types. And it's a great transition piece from Summer to Fall! Enjoy!!

Everythings Coming Up Roses!!

For Rebecca Taylor that is!! She knows exactly how to do feminine pieces without overdoing it! I love the smokey grey trapeze rosette top. Perfect paired here with skinny black jeans, or dress it up a little more with a great pencil skirt! The violet draped ruffle dress is just so sweet. I love the side button detail and the little ruffles on the straps. It's the small finishing touches that make an item more special! And of course my favorite is the all black piece! Haha. She called it the "Romantic Blouse" and it definitely lives up to its name! With great poet sleeves and a tie at the neck, you will for sure fall in love with it!! And what's a Rebecca Taylor order without a cashmere cardi in it!! The light grey cashmere is so yummy against the skin and I love that she made the top button a rhinestone. Enjoy!!!

Fine Print

Tory Burch truly has her prints down to an art form! We just got some fun new items from her that are a perfect example of just that! I love the leopard cashmere cardigan. Looks great paired here with a black dress, or even just a simple t-shirt and jeans! The black ruffle collar sweater is such a great staple piece in any San Franciscans wardrobe! Paired here with the pleated a-line skirt in coconut trees print. This skirt would be a great all year round item and lets be honest, anything with pockets is instant gratification! I love the cream and brown print silk tunic. Put it with a fabulous pair of denim and its an easy and sophisticated outfit! The ruffle front silk cami is a perfect punch of print under any drab suit! Or do it more casually with some denim as well! You can't go wrong with any of these pieces! Enjoy!!

Jungle Fever!!!

I am LOVING the new Ted Rossi bangles we just got in! They are that perfect pop of color or print to any outfit! The embossed leather snakeskin bangles are sssssssssspectacular!(get it? ahaha). Three different color ways and three different sizes. Wear them all together or seperately, you choose! And the sets of 3 bangles on metal are just fantastic! I personally have my eyes on the small set with orange snakeskin! These would make a fantastic gift for your friend who dares to live on the wild side! And the Swaovski crystal cuff and ring are to die for! What a great way to dress up an outfit! And the prices are incredible, all ranging from $90-216! Enjoy!

Bag It Up!!!

Ummm...can I say that it was like Christmas morning here at Sarah Shaw today!!! We just got in the most fierce handbags from Rebecca Minkoff! To start off, these clutches are killer! They are called the Fling clutch, and we got them in gold and black snake skin(embossed leather). They are seriously the most perfect clutch I have EVER come across! These will not last long I gurantee you that! Also in, is the fabulous Nikki and Mini Nikki in Black leather. Such a great bag we had to do it in two sizes! And don't worry if you are not a black leather fan, we have both of these bags coming in brown leather next month! I love the Darling one handle bag in black leather. The zip front and fringe on the sides gives it a bit of an edge. And seriously, its the most perfect size ever! And lastly, the Beloved Mini in burgundy with the long strap is just stunning! The across the body handbags are everywhere these days, but I think that Rebecca Minkoff has nailed it with this one! And the deep burgundy color is just gorgeous! These will not last long ladies, so come in and get your ultimate accessory! Enjoy!!!

Mad Men Milly!!!

If you can say that 5 times really fast I will give you 10% off...aha, jk! All jokes aside, these new Pre-Fall items from Milly are ridiculous! (In a good way). If you have not seen the show Mad Men, you have to rent the first season and get caught up! The whole 1950's vibe was very much an inspiration for the upcoming Season. And so it begins here with our adorable Milly order! The cap sleeve mocha and gold print pencil dress is my favorite! Pair it with some awesome 5 inch pumps, pearls and a vintage fur collar cardi(you can borrow mine), and you are good to go!!! Another trend that you will be seeing everywhere, is animal prints! Why not kick it off with the leopard print ruffle blouse paired here with Milly's true waist black wide leg trouser. Great to wear to the office or out on the town! And last, but certainly not least, is the black lace pencil dress. One of our dearest clients Melissa came in yesterday and bought it fresh out of the box! This was the most beautiful dress I have EVER seen her in! Very classic and absolutely stunning! I LOVE the buttons on the back of the dress. We agreed for her to wear some black patent leather pumps with it to make the buttons pop. And best of all, the price of this dress is so reasonable for how amazing it is! ($322!). Enjoy!!!!
* I HAD to add this on! Today, one of our favorite customers and dear friend, Julie, came in and got something totally out of her ordinary... the Milly blk lace dress! She really doesn't like Milly, so this is a HUGE deal! And I have to say, this dress is proving to be a fantastic find that works on every woman! Only 2 left ladies!!!! I see a re-order in the future! Julie, you are going to look stunning! I am SO excited for you!!!!

New Melissa Joy Manning!

Whenever we get new jewelry in it always lifts all of our spirits! There's just something wonderful about opening a box and unwrapping all these gorgeous gems that gets me every time! Well, lets just say, it was a very fun day for me yesterday to open our Melissa Joy Manning jewelry! Oakland based designer, Melissa uses 14 karat gold with semi-precious stones. Each piece is handcrafted in her Oakland studio with only domestic materials. And they all have a very organic and unique feeling to every one of them. The hoops that she makes are so delicate and I love that she does triangle and square versions instead of just the simple circle hoops. The 24" chain necklace with onyx and white topaz drops is just stunning! And I am obsessed with the Herkimer diamond stud earrings...So much that I had to order a pair for myself! (And my boyfriend who NEVER comments about anything I wear, said last night that he liked my earrings!! I didn't even tell him that they were new!!) Come snag these gorgeous pieces before they are all gone!!
