We’re so excited that the weather is warming up nicely (and quickly)….YAY to an early spring!! We begin our spring highlight with the Lola and Sophie Spring 2016 Collection. We fell in love with this label from fashion designer, Gene Kagan, last year when we got a first look at the Lola and Sophie Fall/Holiday 2015 Collection. We loved the easy, interchangeable pieces that compliment each other (and everything else in your closet), and that love continues on to the spring 2016 collection.

Says Gene:

“I believe in creating wearable multi-function clothes. My target customer is a woman of style and individuality. She’s 18. She’s 100! And everything in between. The common denominator is her desire to look polished and put together……These are clothes to experiment with and make your own. I designed them to be both comfortable and flattering and to instill a certain sense of empowerment for the woman who wears them “
