My daughters consider foraging for a cool item in my closet a sport. We have a metarule: they can’t upset the natural disorder that makes it challenging. But as much fun as we all have, I wonder if there’s a better way to deal with Getting Dressed.
If you’re wondering the same thing, pour a glass, and ask Jamie McClean of Ambitious Image and Kristin Shoop of Image Quotient, both Certified Professional Image Consultants, what they think of your closet shenanigans.

U Dot Trunk Show
Your feet have earned these loafers. Made in the renowned Japanese shoemaking town, Akusaka, by designer Takumi Inomata, the soft leathers hold your foot comfortably and the natural rubber sole absorbs impact.
Beyond the loafer, U Dot creates mules and lace-ups. Candy Herrington will be in-store to help you find the right style and size, and we’ll all chime in with opinions about color and finish.
Each shoe is made one at a time in Japan, and it takes roughly three months from the day the order is placed to the day the shoe arrives in store.

As soon as Paul and Karen catch their breath after presenting F/W 2020 to eager independent store buyers in NYC, they hit the road for one of their favorite weekends and ours: the Heyne Bogut Trunk Show.
Join us Friday afternoon for a later lunch and stay through cocktails to meet or catch up with our Philadelphia based artist friends. Every visit features surprise fabrics, new prints, and the stories of their inspiration.

These clothes are special, reflecting the enormous talent, creativity and passion to infuse every day living with art and artisanship.
Sizes 0 - 5 (roughly xs - xxl), some customization available.
Prices $135 to $450.

Samantha Dong, heeler extraordinaire, joins us for a day of fitting Ally pumps to each of your cranky feet.
Several clients tried Ally pumps in 2019, and the feedback has been positive from women who swore they’d never wear heels again and from those who had crushing long days that required polished presence and significant walking.
Samantha worked with a podiatrist and a talented tech/comfort shoe designer to create flexible pumps that support the arch of your foot and properly cushion the balls of your feet and toes. Your feet fit securely, avoiding the painful forward slide because you are able to order the correct size and width for each foot.
Choose your own color and material, and heal those heels!
