The second Kate Moss for Topshop collection is now available at Nordstrom. The edgy yet sophisticated collection includes pieces in both dark and light colors, as well as bold and subtle prints. Embellishments and bohemian details add just the right touch, without seeming overdone.

Here are 8 standout pieces from Kate Moss for Topshop:

Target Restocks Missoni in Watertown

A week after the fact, Target Watertown restocked some Missoni x Target items. Walking into the store, I spotted swimwear front and center. Round back in housewares, I snapped up four media storage bins in ocean colors. There were also some black & white floral square plates, and less than appealing plastic cups, plus a box or two of stationary.

A Visit to Uncle Pete’s in Beacon Hill Turns Up Aztec-Inspired Beauties

Before I left town last week I stopped into Uncle Pete’s on Charles Street to use the Living Social coupon that was about to expire. I found a number of cute items — Pete clearly has an excellent eye. Here are some of the pieces I liked best:

Vena Cava dresses with Aztec-inspired prints, a trend I’m loving right now.
I really like the silhouette of these – shift-like, but with simple, feminine ruched details, plus a little sleeve.
I  purchased a gray Viva Vena lightweight tee with an Aztec design on the front.

Awesome skinny denim with heft and stretch from Thvm Atelier.

Pete pulled this out from the back room – Shipley & Halmos top with Native American beading detail at the neck.

This bracelet, by RISD-trained designer Andrea Valentini, is meant to resemble some sort of DNA cluster.
The shop also carries some zipper-like jewelry pieces.

Metalwork feathers on a chain from Bing Bang by Anna Sheffield.

And another.

It’s Looc’s Last Day; Audra Slashes Prices 60 Percent

Audra Boyle in front of Looc, May 24, 2011

I was running errands for the Boston Globe today in the South End, so of course I popped into Looc. It’s the boutique’s last day in business. I remember meeting Audra and her then partner Shawna almost four years ago, to interview them about their new store (“Je T’aime Paris,” Daily Candy). In a former photography studio, with flea market sourced decor, and a roster of labels mostly unknown to Boston, Looc perfected the sophisticated but easy-to-wear aesthetic of Nantucket by way of St. Tropez.

Today, many well wishers from the neighborhood stopped in to say goodbye. Luckily, Audra was there too (sans bébé). She says she’s not quite sure what’s next, but with her impeccable taste and creativity, we’re certain to be hearing about another venture.

There are still a few pieces left in store, including looks by Rag & Bone, What Comes Around Goes Around, Ulla Jackson, Isabel Marant and under-the-radar jewelry designers.



Bye bye Looc. It’s been cool. ; )
