RB Fave - The Leopard Coat

If there's one thing every woman should have in her closet, it's a beautiful leopard print coat. We're all about chic wardrobe staples and a statement topper like this brings bold elegance to any outfit. From jeans and a button up to that classic LBD, don't leave home without a leopard coat. The wild print is definitely a neutral in our books now, but it's been fashionable for decades and somehow still looks fresh!

Now let us do the work for you. We've found the PERFECT leopard coat for easy wear any time of year. Smythe Les Vestes is the master of knockout outerwear. Their Leopard Mini Opera Coat ($695) has the sleek feminine lines of a classic '50s swing coat with a mod A-line silhouette. It's lightweight, with textured fabric that has enough weight to drape just so.

10 Crobsy New arrivals!

We just received our first shipment of Derek Lam 10 Crosby Spring 2015 Ready-to-Wear and we couldn’t be more thrilled! With a neutral colour palette, the clothes are anything but ordinary. We love how their VP of Design, Liz Giardina, paired feminine pleating with structured tops and hard lines giving us an effortlessly cool look. Some of our favourites are the two in one dresses and sweaters that can be kept layered or deconstructed to easily take you from day to night and vice versa!
Call us at the shop if you have any questions or what to put something aside!!

RB Fave - NYFW Edition

It's that time of year again! Fashion week has hit New York City so the Dream Team is prepping for another big trip out east for Fall 2015. It's a place near and dear to our hearts so we thought we'd share some of our favorite spots that are a must on any trip to the City That Never Sleeps.

First let's talk food. Babbo (babbonyc.com, 110 Waverly Place in Greenwich Village) is always one of our favorite places to meet friends and catch up. Everything on the menu of this Italian resto is to die for (try the octopus, it's INCREDIBLE) and we always save room for dessert.
Café Felix (felixny.com, 340 W Broadway) is a total scene and a must for an afternoon of watching the world go by. Make sure and find a seat on the patio in Soho for the best people watching.
You'll want to fuel up for a visit to Céline (celine.com, 67 Wooster Street), one of the most beautiful stores we've ever been to. The salespeople are super friendly so take your time and walk around a few times to take it all in.
It's a tourist mecca, but walking the Brooklyn Bridge is truly the perfect plan for a day off. Stroll the bridge with a coffee in hand, take in the view and get out of Manhattan. Then be sure to visit Mociun jewelry (mociun.com, 224 Wythe Avenue in Williamsburg).
 

We stayed at The Standard East Village last season and we will definitely be back. The restaurant Narcissa has a fabulous frittata, the rooms are gorgeous and the location is totally perfect.
You know we're a sucker for flowers and it's true even when we're on the road. Stop by any bodega in New York and you can find gorgeous blooms to brighten up your hotel room. Try it!

No matter what the exhibition we always make time for a walk through The Frick. The building is incredible, a mansion from 1914, so the architecture is awe-inspiring and the collection is beautifully curated.
For a night out, we still love the Soho House. It's one of the coolest places we've ever been and the brunch on Sunday will blow your mind. They have delicious cocktails, so if you have the time make a day of it. Play pool, take a dip in the rooftop pool, people watch.
