We've just set up our Pop-Up Shop featuring Maryland-based up-and-comer aliceanna! We know you are going to love welcoming this label into your wardrobe and here's why--

1. aliceanna designer Patrice Gentile makes retro-inspired modern bombshell glamour easy (!) and accessible for everyday. Flirty and sophisticated details like ruffled sleeves and cutouts are infused into comfortable pieces crafted in natural fibers, elevating the everyday to a new level of easy-breezy-fabulous!

2. One of the highlights of the collection is the gorgeous, versatile, and easy-to-wear dresses – the antidote to the “I don’t have anything to wear” syndrome that happens to even the most stylish ladies. We love this super-flattering silhouette in burnt sienna – perfect for so many occasions.

3. aliceanna’s pieces have timeless appeal: perfectly on-trend but never too trendy. Look for au courant touches of colorblocking, stripes, and tribal prints on beautifully tailored quality items that will be in heavy wardrobe rotation for years to come.

4. Since even the most ladylike among us need to cut loose sometimes…hello mile-long gams! aliceanna’s collection features adorable short-shorts and rompers that are long on sex appeal. Feeling a little timid about showcasing your stems? Try the romper belted with a long grandpa cardigan. Va-Va-Voom!

5. Just like Nana, Gentile’s line pays homage to her matriarchs. The collection takes its title from a coupling of her grandmothers’ names (Alice + Anna = aliceanna), and draws inspiration from their easy-glamorous sense of style, travel, and film. Says Gentile, “The aliceanna lady is intelligent & vivacious; she evokes confidence & femininity.” We love that!

Come see for yourself why aliceanna has made such an impression on us – and join us for the culminating Meet the Designer event on January 26th, 5-7:30PM. Your closet will thank you!
