Top Picks from the Fall 2015 show!

I can’t believe it. Patty and I just finished our last show for the 2015 season! All the clothing that we will have in the shop this year has been ordered. We hope that we make you proud!!

Style report: Fall is going to be pretty. Think Charlie’s Angels – 70’s inspired, flare jeans, floral prints, chunky sweaters, lace, vests, tassels & crochet details. Colors: Marsala, royal purple, navy, gray, cognac & chocolate.

Fall1Joie, how I love you!  Chic, comfy and always nailing it with the staples.  Here is my absolute favorite piece of the collection – you might have seen this Joie vest from my instagram!  Fall2 Lace was one of the top trends I saw for Fall.  A lace LBD?  I think that’s a great idea! Fall3Pair that Joie dress with some statement earrings (I like the green) and you are set!  Susan Hanover is a new line for Milly & Grace! Fall4

Rebecca Taylor, thank you for making the most beautiful clothing!!  Here is just a snap of a few things we bought.  Fall6

Becky, you outdid yourself with this dress!  I love the nod to the 70’s, the color, the ties, and the texture.  Not to mention, it’s nice to have a little sleeve in the Fall.  It’s all working for me here! Fall5I’m all about the vest for Fall 15!  RT did one too and of course it’s on my list!
Fall7Love Shack baby Love Shack!  This Love Shack Fancy dress is a new style for Fall.Fall9A Gillian Julius bracelet is a staple at Milly & Grace.  Do you have yours yet?  Love this new style with the enamel.
Fall8 Bella Dahl makes the softest shirts.  I particularly love this plaid one.Fall10Fall shoes will be available at Milly & Grace for the first time ever! We’ve been carrying Splendid Spring/Summer shoes and they have been a hit.  They make great styles for a great price.  I LOVE the little fur booties!!

Fall12 Oh, P.S…we picked up their shoe line too!  How cute are those sandals?Fall13We loved her jewelry so much last year that we were very excited to see what she came up with this year.  Beautifully handmade jewelry by Suzanne Dai. Fall15 A new line! Fiona Paxton.  Love all the elements here: beads, chains, feathers, leather.  Fall14It was hard to pick my favorites from Parker.  They never disappoint. This dress is pretty and unique.Fall16Pair this skirt with a black turtleneck and pumps and you’ve got yourself your holiday party outfit!
Fall17Want to make a statement?  This top has your name on it!
Fall18NYC travel tips: Dominique Ansel Bakery in Soho for an afternoon treat!  Home of the Cronut.  But Patty & I liked the DKA better!  We didn’t get the chance to try the cookie shot and I think we missed out.  Bummer…must go back.  Oh, and their granola is delish too!  Highly recommended dinner spots: Fat Radish: order the grilled cheese and the spicy tequila drink!  Everyone is also talking about Buvette and I see why!  Order the Pesto di Parma & the Holiday cocktail.  (Shh.. The breakfast is better!) Fall19Now it’s time to start thinking about putting the store together!! Only 2 more months until we open!! 4.24.15!!

Top Picks from the Summer 2015 Show!

Hi everyone!  It’s good to be back blogging.  I’ve missed you!  I am currently writing to you all from snowy Boston.   Steve, Ivy & I escaped Nantucket before the crazy storm hit!  We were worried about getting stuck on the island.  Steve & I are leaving for our very belated honeymoon to Australia tomorrow and we didn’t want to risk missing our flight!  The storm on Nantucket was bad – lots of houses & businesses are still without power and there has been a lot of damage.  In Boston, there was a ton of snow but it was otherwise uneventful.  We took advantage of the snow day!

A couple of weeks ago, Caroline, Patty & I went to NYC to order clothing for the Summer 2015 season!!  The collections look great and I’m excited about this upcoming season.  We saw a lot of white lace/crochet long dresses, lots of cut out details, lots of navy, and crop tops (which I am loving… it’s not looking too hoochie I promise).  The colors are softer, cooler and very pretty!

The most exciting news of this show was that we picked up a new clothing line – Rebecca Minkoff.  Her collection is perfect for the Milly & Grace Girl.  Pretty dress silhouettes in pretty colors! Here is my favorite dress:

Spring 2015 Trend Report & Top Picks!

Get excited people because Spring 2015 is going to be pretty!  Think soft & refreshing.  A mixture of cool & warm tones.  A nice departure from the predictable pastels.


  • The crop top is still in.  I can’t believe that I am actually going to say this but I’ve come around to it.  I know, I know, but the fashion companies are making it more wearable.  The crop isn’t soo cropped – it’s hitting right at top of your jeans.  Expect to see some at Milly & Grace!
  • We saw a lot of halter necklines – both in dresses and tops.
  • Neon is out.
  • One thing I get asked year after year is, “Are maxi dresses going to be in next year?”.  My answer: I don’t think they are going anywhere.  I think I can speak on behalf of most girls and say that we love wearing them.  You just feel pretty in them!  And you don’t have to shave your legs.
  • Sheer is in.  I’m seeing sheer details and lots of sheer skirts (with linings of course).
  • Vegans cover your eyes.  Suede is in.

And without further ado, here are some of my top picks from a few Milly & Grace brands:


JOIE LACE ROMPER: Wouldn’t this be perfect for a bride-to-be to wear to her shower?! springpick2


PARKER PARTY DRESS – with sheer details!

REBECCA TAYLOR PARTY DRESS – the flower details are spectacular!

REBECCA TAYLOR PARTY DRESS – This dress is a show stopper.  And we love the sheer details!

REBECCA TAYLOR MAXI (1 for me please!)

REBECCA TAYLOR CROP TOP & SKIRT COMBO – I told you that I picked up a few crop tops! SPRINGPICK7ASPLENDID SHOES: We love Splendid shoes because they have great everyday styles for a great price!  Most of them run around $100 or less.

BELLA DAHL CHAMBRAY.  Chambray is still very much in and you can do so much with this dress!springpick9

And for the grand finale… We picked up a new line! CHAN LUU clothing.  When you hear Chan Luu, you automatically think of their famous bracelets.  But they started doing clothing and it’s beautiful!  I stopped dead in my tracks when I saw this skirt & sequin top!  This is only just a taste of what’s to come! springpick10
