Boutique Week: A New Twist on a Classic

I love it when designers take a classic item and subvert it, turn it on its head or reimagine it.

For Spring 2013 CELINE designer Phoebe Philo took the good old orthopedic Birkenstock and she added fur! Fur!

What could make the world’s comfiest sandal more comfy or more luxurious?! It seems so obvious now! Why didn’t I think of that?!

One of the early Spring 2014 trends that I’ve spotted on the runway is several designers’ renewed focus on the classic button down shirt.

Altuzzara designer, Joseph Altuzzara, took this staple piece and made it uber sexy, unbuttoned low with an asymmetrical skirt.

Alexander Wang reinvented the Winchester shirt as a modern and feminine dress.

I am so excited that the dress shirt is having a fashion moment!

Arthur & Daughters just debuted a new line of shirts and shirt dresses from Meredith Banzhoff. For Spring `14 Banzhoff created her own twist on the classic shirt -dress! I plan to make it my Spring 2014 uniform and it seems this look is runway approved!

Stop by Arthur & Daughters (49 North Beaver Street, York, PA 17401 646.269.1869) to view the new Meredith Banzhoff Collection.
