Surviving Irene...


I couldn't resist jumping on the bandwagon and posting about Irene, just like the rest of my fellow East Coasters! I'd like to share with you Local Hem's "Hurricane Survival Kit," which they posted to their own blog today. Thanks, Local Hem! Totally agree with all your suggestions... Netflix even informed me this morning that Blue Valentine will be arriving in my mailbox just in time for the storm. Can't wait to hunker down with a movie under a cozy blanket while listening to the storm outside...

Oh and and PS. If the storm's got you stuck inside, remember that you can always shop Mint Julep online! http://store.shopmintjulep.com/ We're here for you 24/7 no matter the weather! XOXO

Fashion Faceoff!

Add Image
Tibi does Hollywood! Blake Lively and Taylor Swift show off a beautiful floral number, each pairing it with fun pumps, and Jenna Ushkowitz from Glee and Shannon Woodward from Raising Hope flaunt two different versions of another stunning style by Tibi. Like our favorite part of People mag, we ask you: "Who wore it better!?"

Fall-time Tibi!

You may remember the beautiful 3/4 sleeve Tibi Draped Silk Chiffon Dress in IVORY from back in the Spring at Mint Julep. It graced our racks for a few short days before it was completely sold out, most likely because everyone who tried it on fell in love and had to have it. Well, ladies, guess what! It's BACK for the Fall in an autumnal shade of warm sienna. It sold so fast the first time that we were squealing when Tibi re-cut this beauty. Stop by soon to try it on for yourself... Surely it won't be long before it's gone!

HBJ Trunk Show!

Tonight our lovely Hannah Blount exhibited pieces from her beautiful jewelry line at a trunk show at Topaz, the little accessories shop tucked around the corner from Mint Julep in Harvard Square. Sara and I took turns making an appearance and showing our support for the jewelry designer who is nearest and dearest to our hearts. From her newest nautical line of shells and barnicle-splattered pieces to her signature egg line, Hannah's work looked absolutely beautiful. You can find her jewelry at Topaz regularly, but also visit www.HannahBlount.com to see the complete collections.

Well done, Hannah! Great job, as always! XOXO

Fabulous Furs!

I didn't want to admit that Fall was on its way until this morning, when these new jackets by Velvet arrived at the store. This afternoon, my thoughts are filled with winter scenes of me walking around the city, sipping hot cocoa and wearing this black cropped fur jacket... and images of me ice skating in this stunning leopard belted coat while soft sprinkles of snow fall (and I suddenly know how to skate like a pro). I am now envisioning all the cold weather activities and seasonal parties that will of course require my arrival in nothing less glamorous than a fur... Those will be the days. So, cold weather, bring it on! I welcome you!

Stop by Mint Julep to check these babies out for yourself... It's never too early to start your Fall shopping!

*Both jackets by Velvet are $218 and available in both Boston Mint Julep locations. Enjoy!

Bracelet Queen

Hola Chicas!

If ya'll know me, you know I'm OBSESSED with bracelets, and LOTS of 'em. I'm always sporting an armful of dope, colorful, exciting bracelets no matter where or when. They add an element of fun to any outfit. I like to play around with colors and textures of different bracelets to get an awesome end result. We have tons of cute bracelets in right now to layer on. Here I am fashioning some of my faves:

From left 2 right: Ca Cao Studded Bracelet; ATR Braided Bracelet; Chibi Jewels Charm Bracelet; Ca Cao Studded Wrap Bracelet; Marc Berstein Triple Wrap Bracelet; Diament Jewels Bracelet

peace, love, and happy bracelets!!
