Moxie Girl Faves: Early Spring Edition

Moxie Girls don’t let anything get them down. Resilience is our middle name– the freezing temps that have been so constant this winter are no match for the beauty that’s unfolding on our shelves! Regardless of what’s going on outside, inside, our stores are a cheerful oasis decorated with pretty spring hues and the most adorable styles you’ve seen yet. It’s certainly time for another round of Moxie Girl Faves! Read on to learn about the styles we’re passionate about and what makes them stand tall against the lingering winter season.

To Karen, Vince Camuto Signature Salato is more than just a fabulous heel. It represents the summer ahead, when she’ll be back in action in sky-high heels after enduring an ankle break this season. This winter’s icy conditions had many victims, but Karen is not one of them. “Broken ankle be damned!” She exclaims. This piece of absolute fabulousness will be hers!

Salato

Vince Camuto “Salato,” $250.

Kaylie is filled with delight at the sight of Kate Spade Jumper. This espadrille wedge is lightweight to comfortably compliment either a daytime or evening outfit. “It’s essence is girly and fun,” she says, and “it’ll be in my spring wardrobe forever.” It’s no competition,

Jumper takes the gold!

Jumper

Kate Spade “Jumper,” $258.

Ariel loves the beautiful mix of chiffon and embroidery on this Madison Marcus black tank. She rightly points out that the style is “perfect for a steamy summer night out.” Flattering to every figure, we don’t expect this top to last very long on the racks! It has a fun surprise too: a flirty open back add some sass.

MadMarcBlackTank

Madison Marcus Black Tank, $210.

Molly can’t imagine life without the simple staple that is Joie a la Plage Sable. Sable is “classic but still feminine and chic” according to Molly, and she says she can picture herself wearing it to the beach or with a flowy sundress. Versatility is key! Sable comes three ways: mirrored rose gold/natural, soft rose gold/natural, and gunmetal (black glitter)/natural… how fun!

Sabel

Joie “Sable,” $135.

Liz is crazy for the elegant Kate Spade Sage. “This beautifully cut heel is classic, classy and feminine,” says Liz. She is going to wear this heel all Spring long!

Sage will pair perfectly with white pants and mojitos!

Sage

Kate Spade “Sage,” $298.

Meg thinks Kate Spade Phoenix screams SPRING! This nearly flourescant pink is surprisingly flattering on all skin types. Phoenix is preppy with a twist, and will definitely add a note of personal style to any outfit. Meg says,

It’ll look stellar with a sunny tan!

Phoenix

Kate Spade “Phoenix,” $248.

Olivia chooses cute and comfortable with these gold Tory Burch Nori wedges. Nori holds your feet in place with soft, wide leather straps. Straps like these or a mary-jane style closure are the first things to look for if you want lasting comfort! Shoes that hug your feet make less stress for them, since you’ll never find yourself clinching your toes to steady a high incline. An adorable eyelet detail adorns Nori in the most precious way.

Tory Burch "Nori," $325.

Tory Burch “Nori,” $325.

Catherine says this “electric” color is gorgeous for spring and summer! AGREE! The Rebecca Minkoff Mini 5 Zip in hot peach with gunmetal hardware is special and different, and, notes Catherine, it’s also perfect size to hold everything you’ll need for a night out! Minkoff’s mini bags are known for their city-style edginess and practicality. Mini 5 Zip will hold your compact wallet, sunnies, phone and keys. Yippee!

RMPeachy

Rebecca Minkoff “Mini 5 Zip,” $195.

Brittany is enamored with the Rebecca Minkoff Mini Perry Tote, which coincidentally shares her last name! She thinks its clean lines and simple shape are perfect for every type of outfit and occasion. A subtle surprise in the form of exposed zippers down the sides of the bag “make it special.”

MiniPerrySatchel

Rebecca Minkoff “Mini Perry Tote,” $325.

It’s safe to say a few things: Kate Spade styles are very strong this Spring, Rebecca Minkoff bags continue to impress, and Spring is looking gorgeous this year! Come visit us to see hundreds of other lust-worthy items :) XOXO

Bags, Bags, Bags

Karen and Kaylie definitely got a little excited over BAGS this season! If you visit either one of our stores you will see the shelves delightfully designed with bags in mind! Here are some of the highlights from early Spring 2014:

First up is INGE CHRISTOPHER, a new line to the Moxie family. Inge Christopher is a line that literally derived from love! Inge Hendromartono and Christopher Senn met and fell in love 29 years ago, and their bag line now celebrates 27 years in business. Focused on clutches, these beauties are extremely well-made and use thick, high quality materials. We couldn’t love them more. $180-$265.

ICClutches1

Asymmetrical Clutches: Snake Embossed Cork $235, Blue & Natural Snakeskin $220.

ICBox

Croc Embossed Leather Miniaudiere $180.

ICLong2

Croc Embossed Leather Long Clutch $235.

ICPink

Magenta Snakeskin Asymmetrical Clutch $220.

Another new addition to our stores is JOELLE HAWKENS by Treesje. This line uses luxe leather that feels super high-end, but remains under $350 (our selection runs under $258)! Vintage fabrics inspired the line’s custom hardware. On any given day, you can spot Kaylie running around Beacon Hill and Wellesley center in the black distressed “Citizen” bag!

JHCitizen

Black/Gunmetal Distressed Citizen Tote $258.

JHCapitol

Capitol Leather Satchel $228.

FOLEY & CORINNA is a tried and true favorite line of the Moxie team and our customers. The company keeps on winning with their famous “Mid City Tote” and its family of similarly-styled fold over bags. But what makes Foley & Corinna stand out from the crowd? Each season continues to bring surprises aside from their staple pieces. We don’t mean to tease you, but we just returned from their showroom in NYC and saw glistening snakeskin, fluffy rabbit fur and jaw-droppingly beautiful colors. They never cease to impress!

FCTote

Tres Flap Satchel $450.

FCLadyThyme

FC Lady Tote in Thyme $345.

FCHobo

Southside Hobo in Black (Also Available in Thyme) $350.

REBECCA MINKOFF’s eye for city style is undeniable. Edgy details adorn classic silhouettes that are always utilitarian in some way– some bags are convertible clutch/crossbody/shoulder pieces, others offer you complete interior organization. We love these bags because they always go from day to evening seamlessly.

RMPeachy

Mini 5 Zip in Peachy $195.

RMStudWallet

Mini Wallet on a Chain $125 & Wallet on a Chain $225.

In the Fall we introduced DANIELLE NICOLE, another gently priced line that uses vegan materials and retails for $98 and under! The talented young Danielle began designing at 18 and is best known for her chic “Alexa” tote. Moxie girls highly recommend Danielle Nicole bags as gifts for your stylish girlfriends– they’re always sure to please!

Collection of Danielle Nicole Bags: $48-$98.
