After Hours Event 9.15.11

Last night's after hours event = a smashing success! We wined, we dined, we shopped, we played dress-up. We gave away a shopping spree and Marc Jacobs handbag. You know, typical Thursday night.

Thanks to all who came out!

Here are a few of your photos:

How to Tie a Square Scarf

We're in love with scarves at WCE, and what's not to love about an Hermes?

But sometimes it can be difficult to decide (or remember) just how to tie that silk square you're dying to wear.

Today we played around with three very EASY and CLASSIC methods, employing the use of one of our new Hermes scarves.

{the square knot}

1) fold scarf diagonally into a triangle
2) flip triangle point to back
3) tie at front in a simple knot

{the scarf necklace}

1) fold scarf diagonally into a triangle
2) leave scarf loose and tie ends at back in a simple knot
3) loosely roll and tuck triangle point at front

{the modern ascot}

1) fold scarf diagonally into a triangle 
2) tie at back in a simple knot, leaving triangle point at front
3) wrap scarf ends back to front and double knot



Hermes "Reveries Japonaises" (Japanese Reveries) silk scarf 
by Latham available at Women's Closet Exchange.

The Jimmy Choo Bali Raffia Hobo

We're currently in love with Jimmy Choo's "Bali Raffia Hobo" 
...And the fact that we happen to have one in at the store doesn't hurt.


While snooping on Polyvore, we found the hobo included in this summer set, which we think is just about perfect.

How would you wear your Bali Raffia Hobo?

Cupcakes & Chanel 8.31.11

There was a buzz of excitement at the store yesterday as everyone anticipated The Sweet Divine cupcake truck's arrival!

The truck was parked in our lot for a few hours serving up cupcakes, ice cream treats and cool lemonades on the last day of July. What fun! Here are a few photos.

{Step right up!}

{My, what stylish cupcakes!}

Even in such excitement, everyone agreed:
The shopping was the real treat - the cupcakes were the cherry on top.
