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.

Coach Men’s Store Now Open at Copley

Coach Men’s, Copley Place

I stopped by the Coach Men’s shop in Copley yesterday. (I was at J.Crew spending a gift card on summer frocks.) It opened last week (Boston is the second city, after NYC, to get one), and the associates were very excited to have a dedicated men’s space. (Previously they had a small area in the main Coach store on the lower level of the mall.) I couldn’t get photographs in the store, but the interior looks quite nice. Not as “done” as the new J. Crew Men’s store, but very well turned out, complete with a curated picture wall behind the sales counter.

As for the products, I love the array of canvas items, which are displayed on the main table in the center of the store. There are plenty of leather man bags too; they’re just rugged enough for your guy.
