Kate here, RefreshEase-ites! Who out there in cyberspace is LOVING this warm weather? Gosh knows Pasha and I are glad to be able to rock out our little spring dresses, sandals and sunnies…

Arriving with the warm weather are, of course, the seasonal North Shore rummage sales. These are great ops for us to stock up on awesome pieces for the shop. In fact, Pasha took me to my very first of these posh sales in Winnetka last week. And, aside from the super early start time (I had to be up at 4:30am, YAWN!) it was a really cool time. Most of all, I enjoyed shopping with my fearless leader, as I got to witness first hand the process that brings RefreshEase-ites all the gorg goodies our store is always stocked with. We came away with a ton of great shoes, bags and clothes that we’ll be putting out on the RefreshEase floor gradually over the next couple of weeks. Score!

In particular, though, I have two favorite pieces that we’ve put onto the floor this week. Oddly enough, both from RFE staple designer, J Crew!

The first, as you can see above this blog post, is a light weight button up shirt – apricot in color and oh-so-SHINY! I love love LOVE this shirt! Love it so much, I might marry it, were it legal to marry a shirt… J Crew calls this shirt “The Perfect Shirt” and it retails for $72.00 — RFE is letting it go for $25! Wow! I think that this is a great shirt to wear over a little chambray dress to go out to a casual dinner, or dressed up with high waist black trousers and heels. Make sure to come in and check it out, it’s super cute!!

The second piece you can see below:

Again, by J Crew – recently, we’ve had several variations of this exact dress in stock. And, they keep selling out one or two days after we put them out on the rack. A simple halter, it comes in a variety of patterns and colors. It retails for $98 and up (depending on pattern, etc.) and this one is BRAND NEW with tags still on. Plus it’s a cute Madras plaid print, making it a perfect sun dress for a picnic on the beach or a BBQ on a rooftop in Wrigleyville. (Personally, it reminds me a bit of a Marilyn Monroe frock.) A sz. 0, this dress can be yours for a mere $25. Score!

This is just the tip of the “new for Spring” merch we have on the floor, make sure to stop by soon and see what we’ve got. (Don’t forget – 2ForTuesday, $20 in reg merch gets you a FREEBIE from our 3-5-10 shop and Shopping Happy Hour on Friday, free champagne and 20% off regularly priced merch!)

In the meantime, enjoy the sun!
xoxo,
Kate and Pasha
