Best of Sale

January 29, 2019

Our 60% off sale is well underway and we have some amazing pieces left in stock at awesome prices. I wanted to take a minute and highlight a few of the great pieces that are still up for grabs.

The Alice and Olivia Imani Lace Dress features a beautiful blue lace and would be perfect for a dressy dinner or cocktail party. With wedding season fastly approaching, this would be a great piece to have in your wardrobe for an upcoming Spring wedding. It was $440 and is marked down to $176.

I have no idea why someone has not snagged this GORG Saloni dress. The colors and fabric are beautiful and it can be worn so many different ways. It would be great paired with a flat pair of sandals for day and can really be dressed up with a metallic heel. It does have a deep v-neckline but could easily be worn with a cami or bandeau. It was $650 and is now $260.

If you want a great fitting blazer then Smythe needs to be your go to. This navy and cream checked blazer is double breasted and features awesome big gold buttons. What I love most about this blazer is it can be worn in a professional setting but is plenty hip to wear with a great pair of jeans for a night out! Its original price was $895 and is now $358.

This Mara Hoffman dress is such a unique piece and is a great piece to grab on sale. It is another sale piece that can easily be transitioned into warmer weather. The color palette is on point too! Get it now for $180. It was originally $450.

We almost never have any Allude sweaters go on sale but this pretty pink number has stuck around and would be a great buy for anyone who loves a more feminine knit. It is great front tucked into your favorite pair of jeans. It was originally $275 and is now right over a hundred at $110.

This Alice and Olivia leopard wrap dress is a classic piece that could be worn for years to come. In my opinion, nothing is more classic than a wrap dress style and anything leopard. The sale price is pretty amazing too! It started off at $350 and is now $140.

This Megan Park Midi dress would be perfect for the Boho girl who loves an effortless and easy style. It can also be dressed up or down and looks great with a variety of different shoes. It is now marked down to $212 from $529.

These are some of my favorite sale items that are left but check out our sale to see the other great items that are still up for grabs as well!

How We Style-Mara Hoffman Wrap Dress

January 15, 2019

Often times, we have customers ask us how they should style certain items…. or we hear them say, “if I had others ways I could wear that piece I would love it but I am just not sure what to do with it.” Since we hear this so often, we have decided to do a blog series once a month where we will pick an item we have in-store and show you all various ways to style/wear it. It is always great when you can invest in a piece that is extremely versatile and can be worn a plethora of different ways. We are going to start the series off with this awesome Mara Hoffman wrap dress. It is currently part of our 50% off sale (such a steal) and I am honestly shocked someone hasn’t snatched this piece up already. It is easily one of the most versatile pieces I have in the store right now.

This dress is gorgeous worn by itself with a statement heel and killer Lizzie Fortunato necklace. Styled this way it is more of a dressy look. I think the length of this dress is one reason it hasn’t sold already. People tend to associate a longer length (midi/maxi) with a dressy feel and that isn’t the case. I wear midi dresses on almost a daily basis with a great flat or bootie. It is all about knowing how to style the piece and dressing it down with the right accessories. One way to dress this Mara Hoffman dress down is to layer it over a casual fitted turtleneck. The one below is by Sita Murt. This instantly gives a more laid back feel and it looks great paired with a pair of Rag and Bone booties.

 

Just because this dress is sleeveless doesn’t mean that you can’t wear it during colder weather. Layer it over a light weight turtleneck and then throw a fun cardigan over it and you are good to go in the Winter months. Perfect for the office or a business lunch.

 

For a great date night look during the Winter, we loved it paired with this burnt orange Sita Murt sweater and lace up oxford heel. Add a pop of leopard with the handbag, and this feels much more like a going out ensemble but with the practicality of a work outfit. It is all about the accessories. This look could go from day to evening with ease.

 

Now that you have seen our favorite ways to style this dress, head on over to the sale section of our website and scoop it up for yourself at an amazing price!

Mara Hoffman Resort

December 13, 2015

Every shipment of Mara Hoffman brings a little sunshine with it! Our most recent Resort shipment was definitely no exception! The great prints, color combinations and unique silhouettes had us drooling with each piece we pulled out of the box. Mara’s inspiration for the collection came from a recent trip she took to Marrakech. The Moroccan landscapes, textiles and culture all played a vital role in influencing her vision for what Resort 2016 would look like.

One of my favorite pieces from the shipment was the Deep V Dress in a jardin majorelle stone print. I liked this silhouette so much when I first viewed the collection that I also did it in another color way that is as equally beautiful! The silhouette features a built-in, tie back bandeau and the cut out detailing on each side shows just the right amount of skin. We paired it with a pair of ombre Oscar de la Renta fringe earrings, a stack of Eddie Borgo bracelets and Rebecca Minkoff gunmetal heels for a dressier feel. This dress would also pair great with a simple pair of flats for a more casual daytime look.

I was also instantly drawn to this crisp white button down shirt that features a beautiful bright green embroidered leaf print. The light and airy feel make this a blouse one I know I would continue to reach for time and time again. It could be paired with a great pair of casual Current Elliott boyfriend jeans or dressed up with a slouchy dress pant by 10 Crosby. I love this color green combined with chunky gold jewelry. We paired it with a Dannijo gold bib and a Giles and Brother cuff. We also received a romantic white midi dress with this same leaf print embroidery that is stunning!

NYC Full Recap!

February 24, 2015

I have to admit to you all that I had all intentions of writing a recap each night we were in NYC to feature the great things we did and saw each day. However, between the weather and our non-stop schedule, by the time we got back to the room the only thing we did was pass out! With that said, this post features everything we did after day 1 in New York and has lots and lots of pictures! Hope you all enjoy!

We started day 2 in the BCBG showroom! We were greeted by these 4 lovely ladies and I am still dreaming of this colorful patchwork coat.

bcbg1In the middle of the showroom was every look that went down the runway the day before. This picture doesn’t do these garments justice. The amount of detail on each of these outfits was breathtaking! See the full BCBG runway show here!

bcbg2Next stop was Trina Turk. Her showroom is one of my favorites. It is bright, warm and cozy! The same goes for her Fall 2015 collection!

trinaAfter Trina Turk we got to hang out with one of our favorites and friend, Hunter Bell. I had never been to her showroom so this was a treat! They do everything from design the line, create the samples, ship the line and show the line all under one roof! As always, it is great catching up with Hunter and her Fall line looks amazing!! It is my favorite collection by her to date!

hunterI have never experienced weather as cold as it was on this trip. At one point I checked the weather and it said it felt like -15 outside! Yep…you read that right…-15!! We bundled up the best we could but I have to say I would be fine never experiencing temps that low again! After seeing BCBG, Trina and Hunter Bell we decided to duck into the place that always makes me feel warm inside….Bergdorf’s! When you step off of the elevator onto the 7th floor the smell is out of this world! We opted for the lobster mac and cheese(duh) and a lobster and avocado salad. For desert we had a chocolate molten cake and salted caramel gelato!

bergdorfAfter that wonderful mid afternoon meal we headed over to the Lincoln Center for the Nicole Miller runway show! The Dark Forest collection was mythical and made us feel like we were in some sort of fantasy land. There were digitized forest and crystal prints and multi color fur detailing through out. The overall vibe for this show was very different from Nicole Miller’s past collections but we loved it!

nicolerunwayDay 3 was full of amazing runway shows from Tibi, Mara Hoffman and Herve Leger. Tibi held their runway show at the Waterfront Building and the venue had so much character. The collection was full of minimalist knits in calm, cool colors and many of the pieces included fur touches and fuzzy detailing. We are thrilled to welcome Tibi to Mosaic for Fall 2015.

tibiMara Hoffman is always one of my favorite shows to attend! This show was no exception!  She played with textures, embroidery, and gold beading to add just a hint of  ’70s vibe to the collection.

mara1runwayHerve Leger’s show featured jacquard dresses peeking out under matching oversize bombers and was inspired by a recent trip made by designer, Lubov Azria, to Barcelona. This was the first time attending their show and the designs were simply breathtaking in person!

herveAfter a wonderful day spent viewing Fall 2015 collections on the runway we headed to the Elizabeth and James showroom! All we can say is fur, fur and more fur….and gorgeous fur at that!!

eandjDay 4 started off with a bang at Tibi. After seeing the amazing runway show, I was very eager to view the full collection! They had the most cozy chunky knit sweaters that we wish we could have walked out of the showroom with. They also had one of the most gorgeous leather dresses I have ever seen! Expect to see this beauty at Mosaic this Fall.

tibishowNext was Giles and Brother and simply put we will be ordering 1 of everything! Their jewelry is so wearable but super unqiue at the same time!

gilesSeveral blocks from Giles was Jerome Dreyfuss and their amazing wall of stunning shoes and bags! Pops of burnt orange and wine hues were scattered among the beautiful collection.

jeromeOur last stop was at one of our favorites, Megan Park. The Ready-to-Wear collection was obviously on point but she is now featuring home items and we couldn’t stop drooling!

meganhomeDay 5 was designated for seeing lots of awesome jewels. We started off the day at Lionette! This line is a favorite of Hunter Bell and we are so glad she told us about them! There designs also make regular appearances on the CW’s Hart of Dixie!

lionetteDannijo was next and they mixed up the collection for Fall by offering only all silver and gold pieces. We are use to a lot of color from Dannijo but we loved the more neutral collection. Don’t worry!! The pieces were still as amazing as ever!

We had to give y’all a peek of a cool section of their new showroom that is full of mannequins dressed in all of the jewels from past seasons!

dannijoDay 6 was our last day in the city and at this point we were dreaming of Carolina and warmer temps but still saw some amazing collections including A.L.C, Current Elliott, Equipment, Alice + Olivia and Rachel Zoe!

A.L.C featured a rad tie-dyed print and some gorgeous metallic lace! What a combo?!?

alclooksAlice and Olivia is always fun, flirty and unpredictable! The award for the most stunning coats definitely goes to Stacey Bendet and her Fall 2015 Collection!

aoWhew!! Our heads are still spinning and now we are off to the drawing board to put together an amazing assortment for you all for Fall 2015!! Stay tuned!
