Time Out

Apologies for no new info on our Blog lately; I've had the last week off to noodle around the SF Bay area with my sister who was visiting from Maine before she jets off the Kazakhstan to adopt a baby. If any of my dear readers are going through an adoption, my sister maintains her own Blog on the process read by over 17,000 visitors! She's also a big knitter and offers up oodles of knitty resources (you can even see the sweater she made for me). See http://bychance.wordpress.com

During my absence, so many new things arrived I haven't even had the chance to try it all on yet! The store is packed with citrusy-goodness from Theory: a lightweight cotton top in orange and watermelon, just the thing for an easy breezy day in the East Bay. Also on tap, a strappy tangerine linen dress, white linen pants, white linen narrow bermudas, and a screaming orange blouse that will perk up your office outfits and keep eyes open across the boardroom table for hours on end. No need for coffee in the morning with this Theory delivery.

We also received a shipment from 3.1 Phillip Lim (did you know he named his line after his age of his first collection - 31?) and the colors just keep on getting bolder: try the peacock colored wide-leg pants or the sunset colored silk dress or top. To tone things down in the Lim line, you have got to see the detail on the cropped black pants.

...And the James Perse leaves the store as fast as it comes in! We got a whopping big box yesterday and after the end of the day tally, we realized over we sold 10 pieces of Perse. Must be the nice weather. Either that, or everyone is digging into last summer's t-shirts and realizing it's time to replace and replenish. If that's your story, you'd better get to iniam quickly to get your tops. We also got some cute shorty shorts in black.

Bianca Nero made her debut at iniam last week too. Three dressy numbers grace the racks for those special occassions; a one-shoulder teal chiffon dress, and another dress quite the opposite in a devil red silk charmeuse with a skinny black belt. Lastly, a silk taffeta tea length ballgown in iridescent blues with beading across the waist.

If that's not enough, we also received verdant green dresses and tops from Beth Bowley. The grass green crochet dress is the standout, comfy and drapey and gorgeous.

During my visit from Maine I had a chance to peruse the beautiful clothing at Iniam. I can only wish for such a boutique in my small town of Freeport, Maine. I fell in love with the crochet green dress! The cut and flow will make any figure look appealing and the comfort of this garment is to die for. Quick, go and buy it before it is gone!
