NOW OPEN: Brooks Brothers Flatiron Shop!

2 Nov

Brooks Brothers Flatiron shop at The Streets at Southpoint is quite different from your average Brooks Brothers . The Flatiron shop is a new retail concept and it’s one of three in the United States to feature a  more youthful, preppy twist to the classic styles of this  iconic brand!   Walking into the Flatiron shop, you will find an assortment of collegiate vibe vintage menswear, womens wear (yes ladies, this store is for you too!) and accessories in this playful, yet totally sophisticated shop. 

With its brick walls, antique furniture, trophy props, and brass chandelier lighting, the atmosphere is very warm and welcoming with a cozy Ivy League-esque/ Hunting lodge/library twist
– and don’t forget to say hello to Bartholomew, or “Bart” as they call him, the Caribou!

In this modern, fun space you can find slim-fitting sportswear, worn in oxford shirts, choice pieces from Black Fleece, shoes and more casual suiting.  And we can’t forget color, you will experience an impressive assortment of clothing with bright colors, like colored chinos and polos to express its certain kind of collegiate style. There’s also a huge selection for women, almost half of the store is dedicated to the ladies, with youth oriented fashionable pieces, any lady can find a perfectly good outfit or accessory to compliment her style in the Flatiron Shop, I know I did!

The store is super helpful in the a lot of the outfits are already put together right there for you – whether it be on a mannequin or paired nicely on a hanger,  the guess work is taken out and you know your look will be complete and polished.  

One of my favorite pieces in the store right now is this Cotton Polka Dot Blazer $248.00.
Three button fitted polka dot blazer made from a cotton blend. Fully lined with striped detailing – and looks AMAZING with almost anything. I’d suggest a mustard yellow top or pant.

I’m also loving this hue of purple in the Hooded Puffer Vest $198.00

And for the guys, a definite Fall must-have:
The Fitzgerald Multi Check Harris Tweed Sport Coat $598.00
Easily casual or easily professional, just depends on what pant you pair with it. Match with a woolen pant for a dressier look or jeans for casual wear.

Add a fabulous accessory, like a scarf and you can change an outfit in an instant!
Cotton Rugby Stripe Knit Scarf $68.00

AMAZING DEALS GOING ON RIGHT NOW!

With any outerwear purchase of $498 or more receive a complimentary leather duffle bag valued at $498!

So, purchase some of this:

Free People Has The Styles You’ll Love!

4 Apr

she is a free spirit…
wakes up to see the sun shine.
stays up to catch a falling star…
she is our free people girl.
and she is the reason we do what we do.

I walk by Free People at The Streets at Southpoint all the time, looking through the window at all the beautiful clothes and imagine myself twirling around in their vintage, bohemian, festival inspired, soulful clothing.  On Sunday, I stopped walking by and instead, I made my way through the vivid assortment of  feminine clothing and found myself more than pleased!

Free People has a way of bringing a fashionable, artsy spirit to your shopping experience, almost as if you are transformed into another time and place.  The sun shines brightly through the windows and pours its vibrancy on the array of colors, patterns and textures – not to mention the beautiful art pieces that hang from the ceilings.  It’s quite an experience when you step into Free People.

I had the pleasure of meeting with the wonderful manager, Megan, and her fabulous sales associate, Jennifer at Free People on Sunday, their excited energy and welcoming demeanor was above and beyond and I could really feel their passion and love for the store.  It’s not just clothes, it’s a way of life and a way of being!

I was immediately attracted to this beautiful ensemble. Everything about the outfit exudes confidence and spirit.
I love the way the feather necklace sets off the outfit!

Dress $88.00
Mint, semi-sheer gauzy pin ticked slip dress. Straps crisscross in the back and are adjustable. This dress is part of the special Free People collection.

 Traveler Denim Jacket $148.00
Distressed washed denim, stretchy fit. Buttons up the front, two front flap packets and two normal pockets.

 Feather Necklace $28.00

__

Another dress I just couldn’t keep my eyes off of was the
Icy Embellished Dress $168
Sleeveless body-conscious dress with textured floral applique and iridescent beading on the front.  Must see this in person, it’s gorgeous!


I’m a sucker for a good button down and Free People take it to the next level.  Among all the beautiful dresses, vintage flare denim, and festival-inspired accessories, I found my perfect outfit.
Cutoff denim speaks to me, it always has!
This outfit is a beautiful mix of spring and summer with a fashionable casual vibe – and the colors scream perfection!

Sweet Spring Gingham Buttondown $88.00
Semi-sheer and breezy!  One front pocket with button detailing at each sleeve hem.

Colored Denim Cutoff Shorts (Melon color) $68.00
Distressed cutoff denim with 5 pockets, zipper and button fly closure.

 Are you a fellow cutoff denim lover? The color selection doesn’t stop at just melon –
how about purple, teal or even camel to brighten up your day?
All just $68.00

I asked Megan and Jennifer what some of their favorite items were.
Megan can’t get enough of the mini multicolor woven blanket cross body with tassel detailing.  She loves the versatility it offers as a grab and go bag or even a bag you can throw into a larger bag.
This is a Free People exclusive!
Guatemalan Fringe Crossbody $48.00

Jennifer’s favorite item was no secret and she was actually wearing it too!
She is currently loving the  Free People Vintage Extreme Flare and rightfully so, these pants are wide-legged and out-of-control cool!
Free People Vintage Extreme Flare $148.00
Light wash wideleg jeans with raw hems, exposed seams and two front slit pickets.  Button and zipper fly.  Two back pockets.

 Jennifer accented this outfit with something Free People does well: HAIR ACCESSORIES!
Unique, one-of-kind, headdresses, ties,  halos, wraps, bobby pins, slides, ponytail cuffs, turbans and bands.  If your hair needs it, Free People has it – and they don’t just have it, they HAVE IT and it’s done right!
Jennifer’s hair accessory is one of the more simple looks and works great with the extreme flares – it adds to the look and brings everything together as a whole.

Shredded Turban $24.00

One more outfit I’m totally diggin on right now…
I think the hat initially drew me in, but then as my eyes worked down through the whole piece, I was totally intrigued by the mixed print ruffle crop top.  I could see this being a summer staple in my closet.  Perfect with denim shorts or pants – or pair it with a killer mini, either way, this top should not be over looked!

Mixed Print Ruffle Crop Top $48.00
Stretchy smoked straps and band in back. Ruched detailing in front of bust.

Star Straw Fedora $98.00
A total don’t leave home without!
Super adorable with contrasting trim.

Speaking of hats, Free People has no shortage of ’em!  Whatever your style, it’s here!
I think I may have a small crush on the Sunkissed Fedora with the striped raw edged fabric trimming!
$78.00

So, if you haven’t been to Free People yet, make sure you stop in next time you’re at The Streets!  It’s located in the open air section next to Rockfish, across from Firebird’s and Cheesecake Factory.
This weekend may be a good time to head in because it’s the start of their
April Weekend Local Artist Event.

Every Saturday and Sunday in April, Free People will feature local artists in the area who have chosen to follow their dreams as artists  – all with different backgrounds and mediums, ranging from musicians to jewelry makers, to painters and singers.  Art, in any form can be an inspiration to everyone and Free People wants to voice that!  Be sure to join Free People every weekend in April to experience the art in real life!

Also, Free People has new markdowns every week and new inventory EVERY DAY so any day is a good day to find what’s new at Free People!

Head in, ask for Megan or Jennifer, and tell them the GURU sent you!
