Tango with Tangerine in 2012

It’s going to be a bright year! Each year, Pantone, the worldwide authority on color, releases its choice for “Color of the Year.” Their pick for 2012? Tangerine Tango — a vibrant shade of red-orange that “continues to provide the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward.”

To help with that cause, we’re releasing an exclusive striped shirt with Nordstrom later this month. It’s available in a variety of colors…including tangerine! Newsday featured the top as one of their top tangerine picks for 2012.

It will be available soon at Nordstrom nationwide. If tangerine isn’t your favorite color, it’s also available in apple green, black, cobalt blue, sherbert pink, and turquoise. 2012 is going to be bright indeed!

Faux Fur for Fall 2011

With school back in session and summer vacation over, fall is finally in full swing! One of the biggest trends on runways for Fall 2011 is fur – both faux and real. Faux fur has had a revolutionary transformation in the past few years, and even fashion labels like Prada and Chanel, which once shied away faux fur are now using it in their collections. Nordstrom caught on and identified faux fur as one of their Best Trends this year. To learn more about the advancements in faux fur and how it’s been designed to look more and more realistic in recent years, check out this fantastic article from the Los Angeles Times.

We’ve tapped into this trend for our newest collection, with tons of faux fur details on coats, sweaters, tops, jackets, and more. Animal-inspired touches are a fun way to take a classic style and give it an updated twist. We’ve included some of our favorite styles that use new faux technology below. Enjoy!

Perfect Pieces for a Summer Barbecue

I love summer because it’s perfectly divided into two precise halves: the half before the Fourth of July, and the half after the Fourth of July. Bookended by Memorial Day and Labor Day, there’s no other season that is as perfectly laid out to give you three chances to showcase new outfits and impress friends. Since we’re still in the first half of summer, there’s still plenty of time to pick out some new items for upcoming barbecues, parties, and weekends with friends. Here are some of our suggestions:

Floral Print Cap Sleeve Dress - at Nordstrom


Summer florals are always right – and this beautiful print dress is no exception. The season’s right for bright, fun prints. Perfect for picnics, barbecues, and just about any day spent under the sun, this is a dress you’ll want to wear all summer long. Added bonuses – it’s made in the USA and it’s completely machine washable. Find it here at Nordstrom.

Palm Flare Skirt - at Belk


With a flattering flare cut, this abstract print skirt will make you look and feel great at the same time. The cotton/silk blend is extremely comfortable, and the fact that it’s machine washable makes it a skirt that you can keep wearing over and over again with such ease. A true summer must! Find it at Belk here.

Contrast Print Ruffle Dress - at Bon Ton


Another great print dress, our contrast print ruffle dress screams “Summer!” The ditsy floral print is cute and feminine and the bright colors are ideal for the warm season. You’ll be turning heads in no time with this dress – the contrasting sleeves and hemline make sure you’re a standout! You can find it here at Bon Ton.

Item of the Day – 5/17/11


"The Hamptons" Open Lace Top - at Nordstrom


On a recent trip to Nashville, I had the pleasure of stopping into the Belk at Cool Springs Galleria. It wasn’t really a coincidence – I was in town for Girls’ Night Out, but I was lucky enough to spend the entire day there, so I got to see customers trying on all sorts of different items and I quickly noticed a trend by the end of the day. Nearly every woman who walked into the Karen Kane department was trying on our new open lace top. I couldn’t blame them – it’s a new silhouette for us and it looked amazing on nearly everyone who tried it on. At one point, I counted four different women trying it on at the same time! It’s available in both black and off-white, and has been flying off the racks since it’s hit the floor. If you want to pick up your own, you can visit a local department store in your area or find it online at retailers like Nordstrom or Dillard’s.

Trendspotting: The Maxi Dress

Each week, we plan to highlight one key trend for the season. For our first installment of “Trendspotting,” I’ve decided to focus on one of the biggest for Spring/Summer 2011 – the ubiquitous maxi dress. Whether sequined, striped, or solid black, we’re offering a wide variety of maxis this season that are perfect for every occasion.  Read on to find out about some of our favorites!

Sleeveless Banded Maxi Dress (at Nordstrom)

Our sleeveless banded maxi (available at Nordstrom here and at Belk here) is simple, yet sophisticated, and so easy to wear. It’s machine washable, made in the USA, and such a great piece to pack for any upcoming summer travel plans you may have. By adding a fun coverlet, you can quickly turn this dress into the perfect evening outfit! At only $98, it’s a great steal for the season!

Long Tiered Lace Dress (at Bon Ton)

Our long tiered lace dress (available at Bon Ton here) features an empire waste that will flatter nearly every figure. Its pullover style makes getting dressed a snap and the lacy tiers add a beautiful feminine touch. The dress is made of a cotton/nylon blend and has a suggested retail price of $138.

Floral Medallion Maxi Dress (at Belk)

If you haven’t seen our flower medallion maxi yet, you’ve been missing out! This rayon/spandex dress features a fun painted floral pattern as well as side pockets. It’s the perfect item to wear to spring picnics or summer barbecues. With such a light, airy feeling, you’re going to swear it’s one of the most comfortable pieces of clothing you’ve ever owned. The dress is available now at Belk for just $98!

Reverse Seam Maxi Dress (at Bloomingdale's)

At first glance, our reverse seam maxi dress (available at Bloomingdale’s here and at Nordstrom here) may appear just like any other little black dress, but looks can be deceiving! This maxi has a reverse seam to give it an updated twist. With a rayon/spandex fabrication and easy pull-on design, it will soon become one of your wardrobe staples. For just $108, it’s a classic that every woman’s closet needs.

Stripe Maxi Dress (at Nordstrom)

The last dress we’re featuring today is far from the least! A personal favorite of mine, the stripe maxi dress (available here at Nordstrom and here at Bloomingdale’s) has classic black and white stripes that are simple, yet add a bit of glamour to the design. It can be easily paired with strappy flats or platforms to create a quick on-trend look. Made in the USA and machine-washable, this dress retails for $109.

Hope our maxi roundup provides some great inspirations for your summer shopping! No matter which one you pick, you can’t go wrong.
