Cozy in Free People!

Upgrade your average rainy day outfit with some new duds from Free People. Shelby models the new "Yesterday's Smile" cardigan over a black lace Kensie dress and some comfy leggings. Very cozy but still stylish! She also models the new "Newman Throwback Top" with a Zad sequin necklace and her favorite pair of opaque Spanx tights. The weather outside may be grey and rainy, but with some new fall attire, you'll feel anything but drab! XOXO

Sara Rue Sports CLC!

Look how cute Sara Rue looks in the Corey Lynn Calter Shawna Side Drape Dress. One of our faves this season, it's perfect for a night out on the town or for an upcoming holiday party! Find it here, at our online store.

NOT your moms jeans...

mint julep is proud to annouce a new member to our jean family: MOTHER denim.

it is the brain child of a former citizen designer AND a former 7s designer, so really, how can they go wrong??

read what they had to say:

" We are taking our expertise in fit and finish and adding a key third element that involves developing new denims that feel like cashmere.” The washes are also unique, including dyed black and white jeans as well as super-saturated blues. The collection will also feature other fabrics such as twills.
The mission behind the line, was to “Break the barriers of what people have come to expect of average mainstream denim companies. Aside from the obvious luxurious nature of the denims, we really went after a more saturated wash palette.”

currently both boston stores are featureing 2 styles... the Runaway, a skinny flare, and the Looker, a basic skinny.

visit us soon to try a pair and put your mothers old Lee's to shame.
