Aunt Sadies Candles

We just received a lovely shipment of our favorite candles direct from Boston's South End. In adorably decorated cans and smelling of things like Green Tea, Sandalwood, and Green Grass, these candles make any room sweet smelling.

And, towards Thanksgiving, watch for candles in Wintermint and the absolutely divine Tree-in-a-Can. You'll be in the Holiday spirit in no time.

Mad for plaid!

Hi everyone! It's me, Mintz. This season, from Mint Julep to the streets of NYC (and Boston!) bold prints are in! This fall, come to Mint Julep for your dose of pleated plaids and tailored tweeds. If you're on the hunt for a cozy autumn jacket, check out our new line of coats by Chris and Jaime, a mother-daughter duo from L.A. We have a print for every occasion. Both the Tibi jumper or the hounds tooth Voom dress can easily go from work to a night on the town. And there is my personal favorite, the plaid sleeveless Voom dress, which I would pair with some cowboy boots and a cropped cardigan. If you're hesitant to flaunt such daring garb, check out our new collection of San Diego caps for a more subtle splash of tweed. But whatever your look calls for this fall, we've got something to add a bit of flair to your outfit.

With November 4th right around the corner there's no better time to encourage people to let their opinions be heard. Created by one of our favorites designers, JoJo's VOTE jewelry is a to-the-point statement that's also really pretty. Whatever your political affiliation, we here at Mint Julep encourage everyone to get out and VOTE!

Rose Jewelry

It came yesterday. So pretty!

Spanx Tights :)

The season for tights is upon us and Spanx hasn't let us down. We just received an order of the prettiest patterned tights complete with Power Panty reinforcement on the top to keep you all tucked into your new fall skirts.

Also well worth noting, are the Spanx Reversible Tights. These amazingly opaque tights are black on one side and brown or gray on the other, giving you a much appreciated option when you're getting dressed each morning.

How to dress like a star...

Hollywood Fashion Tape has long been a staple amongst Hollywood starlets and now we know why. This stuff really works. The little pieces of double sided tape will keep you confident in strapless dresses, prevent gapping in your dress shirts and keep pesky bra straps at bay.

We also carry No Shows, Band Aid-like, disposable nipple concealers and the reusable version, Cover Ups.

Last but not least is a personal favorite of mine, the Hook Up. This little gadget makes any bra into a racerback, eliminating that visible bra strap annoyance.

Sale on basics

We're clearing space for all the gorgeous Fall basics that will be coming our way so we've put some great Summer stuff on sale.

Look in our sale bins for pieces by LAMade, Splendid, Three Dots, Free People, and Odd Molly.
