Lady in Red....

As Hannah and I unpacked this morning's deliveries, one Fall trend became very obvious... Red is IN! From the crimson "Matisse Floral" Plenty by Tracy Reese dress to the MM Couture corset top to the BEAUTIFUL Nanette Lepore "Easy Lovin" dress in Red, we fell in love with each piece more than the next. Stop in soon to try them out for yourself!

A reading list from the MJ girls!

On top of our love of fashion, many of us Julep girls are avid readers! I asked around and have here a list of our summer reads... If you're in the market for a new book, try one of these!

- Great beach reads recommended by Erin (perfect for summertime, of course): Something Borrowed and its sequel, Something Blue, by Emily Giffin.

- Praised by Hannah is the book of short stories, St. Lucy's Home for Girls Raised by Wolves by Karen Russell.

- I, Marissa, am halfway through Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese and loving it.

- I think ALL of us read Bossypants by Tina Fey this summer. Love her.

- Our foodie in the family, Cayla, recommends Blood, Bones, and Butter by Gabrielle Hamilton, owner of Prune in NYC!

- Shelby recommends Cleopatra, a Life by Stacy Schiff.

- I am totally envious that Sara got to add a brand new set of Penguin classic hardcover books to her collection when her birthday came around this year. Classic literature for a classic lady...

And that, ladies, is the list! Enjoy!

Fall in July!

Today's forecast: 90 degrees. What perfect timing for all these sweaters and coats that are rolling through the door of Mint Julep! I must say, the fashion world is a crazy place...

Although it may be a steamy July day here in the real world, in the Fashion World, Fall is upon us! Get prepared for a chill to enter the air... After all, it's never too early to start your fall shopping! Especially when our racks are filled with adorable sweaters by Free People and 525 America sitting beside cozy coats by BB Dakota and Jack. Stop by your favorite Mint Julep locale to get first dibbs on our Fall merch. And if you're not quite ready to think "Fall" yet, not to worry; as the summer moves on, there will be lots more fabulous styles to come!

Mon Petit Chou Chou !

Our 'favorite little blogger,' Lani, of Mon Petit Chou Chou stopped in this week for a sneak peak at our much-anticipated Summer Sale. We were so pleased to play with her - dress-up really is the best pastime! Aside from snagging some serious steals - she snapped a few stunning shots of herself in soon-to-be-sale-items - here she is pictured in the Milly Chevron Maxi Dress (her photo)...

We hope you all check out Lani's blog - and make sure to scan my favorite recent post - her back deck makeover for July 4th - so savvy!

She certainly is the local authority on all things fashion, food and fun in Boston ... Mon Petit Chou Chou! Thanks for shopping with us, Lani!
