What to Wear: On Easter

When we opened The Hive, there were certain things we anticipated and others that we did not. One of the things we did not plan for was how many of our customers would come in looking for an Easter dress (or outfit). A few weeks ago, the pickings were slim. But thanks to the arrival of Tibi, Ulla Johnson and other spring collections, we can now confidently point you toward twenty Easter-worthy looks that work for anything from a formal church service to a casual family gathering.

A Veronica Beard Trunk Show & Giveaway

Since we opened last September we have consistently reloaded our racks at The Hive with clothing from Veronica Beard, and still we can’t seem to keep it in stock! It turns out our customers love the brand just as much as we do, and we could not be more pleased.

To celebrate the arrival of spring and all of the fun fashions that come with it, we are hosting a Veronica Beard trunk show this weekend, Friday, March 10 through Sunday, March 12. Join us for this exclusive showing of the brand’s Spring 2017 collection and any Veronica Beard purchases (including special orders) will be 20% off. Our brand rep–one of our favorite people–will be on location to help with sizing and fit as well as styling.

The pieces our rep is bringing with her will only be available through Sunday; they get shipped back the next morning. This is your only chance to shop an expanded selection of the brand’s collection in person at a discount!

And you haven’t even heard the best news yet! The Veronica Beard team is generously giving us a VB jacket to raffle off–the only requirement to participate is the in-person entry of your name and email address. No purchase required!

Have any questions about this event? Email us at info@theshoehive.com or give us a call 703.548.7110.

Here’s a taste of the pieces we will have available:

The Hive Styles: Veronica Beard

We often joke we wouldn’t have a store if it weren’t for Rag and Bone and Veronica Beard. While we have many brands we love (we wouldn’t carry them if we didn’t), the pieces we can’t seem to keep in stock or that sell out in days are inevitably by one or the other. The latest delivery of Veronica Beard is particularly lust-worthy, and so one shouldn’t be surprised we dressed Deborah in so many of the designer’s newest pieces!

She is pictured wearing the Veronica Beard ultra-luxurious navy leather and black scuba peplum jacket. The paneling and asymmetrical zipper make it fun enough for a night out while the dark hues and tailored cut keep it subdued enough for work. The black peplum cashmere sleeveless sweater layered under the jacket also comes in light grey, and makes the ideal fall layering piece. We finished the look with the now-iconic Veronica Beard scuba pant in black, Tom Ford sunglasses and DVF booties. The joy of being able to dress our customers head to toe now still hasn’t gotten old and we doubt it ever will!

The Hive Styles: Fall Favorites

Every Tuesday, we invite a friend to come and model some of our clothing, shoes and accessories. (In this case, it’s Megan from 529 Kids Consign!) Our photographer spends a couple of hours taking shots of as many outfits and as much new product as possible to meet our social media, blog, email and Alexandria Stylebook needs. Originally, this outfit (with a few edits) was destined for a Stylebook post, and eventually it will. But in the meantime, we wanted to highlight this look for its fall functionality.

Each piece Megan is wearing can be worn in other ways for other purposes, and will contribute to the foundation of a functional fall wardrobe. The sweater by Veronica Beard is flattering on its own or layered over a button-up. Pair it with wide-leg cropped trousers for a completely different look. The booties–a favorite from Rag and Bone, are also available in black and the denim shirt can and should be worn year-round. The bag was a fun last-minute add-on but makes a great tote for women on the go. Whether you call us and have us hold one or multiple of these items for you or whether you just use this layered look as inspiration for your own fall favorites, we thought it was worthy of sharing with you!
