Transitional Treats

7.24 scarf 2

7.24.01

As stores slowly push out their colorful summer dresses and wool jackets styled with warm scarves come creeping in, we know that its time to start investing in staples for Fall. Meanwhile, we’re still sweltering in the underground as we await metro trains, and above ground as well, when it becomes so hot that we need to take little gelato and iced tea breaks between errands.

Our solution at the Sheena Trivedi team is to stock up on pieces that we deem transitional—versatile enough to get us through whatever-the weather and layer-proof so that we can take on (or off) the extras. Our picks? Our black cotton silk Ana top with an elongated back and our striking red, gold, silver, and black Sara scarf detailed with leather fringes.

These pieces are easy to combine with other garments to achieve maximum comfort as we navigate through those moments where we can feel the chill of late August approaching, but we remember to still bask in the summertime sun.

Remembering that compromise is key,

The Best of Both Worlds

 7.10.13 - 2

Wink at the past with our Jass Corset whose shape will transport you to the tides of the 18th century while grounding you firmly in the present. A feeling of sophistication is guaranteed, the nude coloring is sure to show off your summer glow, and the piece can be worn casually at the beach or over leggings in the city for a powerful, trend-setting look. The back of this corset also features gold eyeholes that lend the wearer an always-welcome dose of sass and edge.

The best part? No whalebone allowed. The materials of this piece blend supple sheep leather and cotton silk for a feel so comfortable we can’t even begin to imagine how jealous Marie Antoinette would be.

It turns out you can have your cake and eat it, too.

Bon appetit!

Going Green

From our current juicing craze to the lazy afternoons we’ve spent reading in Bryant Park we’re convinced, this summer, all that glitters is green. Our silk Zena jacket is perfect for those moments when we long for a serene oasis but are spending a summer in the city. The tone of this jacket is a spectacular iridescent blue-green, and the way that the sun reflects the color serves us a constant reminder as to why the world seems a better place when we decide to go green.

Have a colorful weekend,
