#LoveLocalOT: 10 Years of OTBD

About 15 years ago I started to plan the opening of The Shoe Hive. When I registered the domain name theshoehive.com, I also bought the name for a second website, oldtownboutiquedistrict.com. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it, I just had a thought: how do we put all the great stores in Old […]

Veronica Beard Trunk Show: 3/9-3/11

No matter what you do in a day, Veronica Beard has clothes that will work for your lifestyle. The designers are also two women (both named Veronica) who obviously work a ton and have […]

Gigi New York: Oct. 27-29

Before we know it we will all be sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner, then we will start making our lists of all […]

The Infina Jacket: 3 Ways

The perfect third entry in our styling Trifecta is the Infina Jacket by Isabel Marant. I love blazers. I have yet to see one I don’t want to own, as my closet proves. There have been some customers who worry this jacket is a little too buttoned up and conservative. I love buttoned up and […]
