Monkee's New York Adventures

And that's a wrap!! 
The most exciting 2 weeks in New York have come and gone again. Fashion week followed by Showroom appointments and Coterie. 

Monkee was along for the ride... 

He actually flew the plane. 

First stop, ...

Alice & Olivia was next, and guess who we saw?! The talented designer herself, Stacey Bendet!

Monkee was very excited about Tibi's Spring line!

Hello, Coterie!

Ted Baker was gorgeous! 

Hunter Bell didn't disappoint either! Pretty neutrals & pastels are all the rage!

Thanks NY! We had a blast!

Sheila Fajl agreed to do a Monkee's tour around North Carolina, and she'll be at our Wilmington location Thursday, September 25th. We're so excited to finally meet the woman behind the ever so popular lightweight hoops!

Along with the Sheila Fajl meet & greet and trunk show, we'll be hosting our Fall party that night from 6-9pm. ALL are welcome!! The party is not only to kick off our Fall season, but also to celebrate the end, & hopefully the success, of our Sock Monkee event. (Details on our Sock Monkee event to come tomorrow.) We'll have our favorite local DJ providing the music, lots of great cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, and models wearing all the current trends.

So mark your calendars! We hope to see you all there!

Don't "Monkee" Around With The Health Of Our Children

Monkee's of Wilmington has teamed up with the NHRMC Foundation this month selling sock "monkees" to benefit the Betty H. Cameron Women's & Children's Hospital. We will be selling the monkees over the next few weeks for $500. Not only will 100% of the proceeds go to NHRMC, but each of the sold monkees will be given to a child currently in the Women's & Children's Hospital. 

More information will be coming in the next few days, but until then, enjoy seeing #MonkeesMonkee all over town the world... including his recent trip to Canada!

And remember, "don't Monkee around with the health of our children!"

How To Wear White After Labor Day

Who says you can't wear white after Labor Day??

Rules are no more! 

Tips on how to wear white after Labor Day, according to celebrity stylist, Robert Verdi, via:

Overall, Verdi suggusts "[pairing] whites (whether they're jeans, a blazer, a bag) with a silhouette that is decidedly fall, like a navy velvet cigarette pant (that way it will look less summery) or a wool fedora." (Like Khloe Kardashian did below.) "For newly purchased items, choose cream and ivory colored pieces, since they're less jarring, and always opt for white, cream, and ivory-colored items in fall fabrics."

1. A white blazer: "If you're planning on wearing one in the fall, pair it with a black or gray turtleneck and skinny jeans, instead of the loose camisole and shorts you've been wearing it with all summer. This makes it more season-appropriate."
2. White boots: "They're a little risky, but if you're going to wear a pair, you'll want to show them off with a skirt to make them the focus."
3. A white belt: "This accessory mixed in with neutral-colored bottoms and a colorful top offers up a colorblocking effect, which is a very stylish move."
4. White or cream tops: "They're seasonless—always in style."
5. White pants: "These can read the wrong season unless they're in a fall fabric. You wouldn't want to wear a white silk pant in the winter, however you could pair a white denim pant with a suede shoe and that's totally acceptable."
6. White sunglasses and jewelry: "These accessories can feel too summery, but if you're traveling to a balmy location in the dead of winter, by all means wear them. Otherwise, to actually pull off white jewelry in the winter, I suggest wearing an acrylic white cuff over the wrist of a tight burnt orange or teal cashmere sweater—that to me is chic."


Are you one who throws rules out the window? How will you wear white after Labor Day?
