So, what's on my last minute wish list?
This adorable Odd Molly Ikat dress in blue! I love the constrasts at work in this dress - a 1950's-style silhouette mixed with the traditionally South American weaving technique of Ikat! And let's just say that I've imagined myself doing more than a few twirls in the layered skirt.
Absolutely beautiful, and absolutely perfect as a last-minute gift!

Orla Kiely bags, Yarnz scarves and Aunt Sadie's candles are always a big hit with Julep girls and shoppers alike. Why not stock up on a few pieces for those who you may have left off your list?
The winter weather may be in full force at Mint Julep (both Boston and New York were covered in snow this weekend!) but things are nice and cozy inside, where we're always glad to help you pick out that perfect gift. Stop by, listen to some holiday tunes, and let us help you find that perfect last minute gift!

Makes a GREAT stocking stuffer!

This holiday season, get your clutches on one of our charming new Lauren Merkin handbags. The festive array of metallic clutches and small handbags arrived on Friday, and each one is just more stunning than the next. Whether you prefer a subtle plum hue or want to go all out with a glittery gold or speckled bronze, come check out the lovely selection that just arrived in the Boston shops. Each one is perfect for toting to a holiday party, whether you are carrying it yourself or giving it as a gift! My personal fave is the Diana Galaxy Metallic in Gold-- a real show-stopper!

Stumped by what to give the birthday girl who's got it all? How about a jewelry tray for her to keep her most coveted pieces?

Each Fornash jewelry tray is hand-painted with love.

Luckily, we just received a new order from Spanx! Sara Blakely's famous shapewear is also available in tight-form, which couldn't be more convenient or comfortable.

We hope all the goblins, ghosts, and witches had a great night! All of the Mint Julep girls ate way too much candy, but that didn't stop us from dressing up and taking in all the festivities from the Beacon Hill Stroll to NYC's Greenwich Village Parade. A scary good time!
Halloween is over (TEARS!), but you can still dress up your everyday outfits with a fun Free People headpiece. Sparkly bows and florettes add pizzaz and just the right amount of retro glam to a little black dress or jeans and a tank top. Dressing up is so much fun!
