I’m pleased to report that the sun just came out here, so I decided to re-emerge from the rock I’ve been hiding under for the last month – trying to stay dry and warm – to talk about some of our new spring styles.
I’m so excited to introduce two of our essential pieces for Spring 2013: the Healy skirt and the Dupont Top.
We revisit our inaugural design in the Julia Farr Collection this spring – the Healy skirt – made in a light and airy linen/tencel fabric that makes it perfect for hot summer days. It is named in honor of the historic and majestic Healy Hall, the flagship building at Georgetown University. Our lifelong friendship began at the university, and we honor that beginning by naming our timeless pencil skirt after this iconic symbol of Georgetown.
A classic pencil skirt, the Healy sits about one inch below the natural waist and runs straight from hip to knee, allowing for ease in movement. The Healy Skirt was designed expressly to fit the shorter-waisted woman, one whose waist and hips are closer in measurement. Everlasting in design, the Healy skirt is an essential foundation piece for every woman’s wardrobe.
I love the fit and feel of our elegant Dupont Top. It is versatile enough to take you from a private museum opening to dinner in one of the ethnic restaurants that dot the eclectic Dupont neighborhood in northwest Washington.
The Dupont is a capped-sleeved wrap top with the hand-tied knot securing in front. The deep vee neckline makes this an ideal top to showcase your favorite pendant necklace or long chains. It extends to the top of the hip bone to cover the waistline of a skirt or pants.
I’ve worn it with my white jeans, as shown above, but it’s also great with all of my many pairs of colored jeans (pink! red!). For evening, I pair it with a black skirt for a very dressy look!
