fall forward


You asked, we delivered.

Our beloved Midi Paraskirt is back in stock!  She is featured in a luscious black satin (feels like a DREAM to the touch).  Perfect for both casual and formal ensembles, our Midi Paraskirt is truly the star of the show (no matter where she goes).   Paraskirts are always fast sellers, so claim yours before they’re going… going… Gone!

And remember, all merchandise is currently 20% off. Sing it!

But wait… there’s more.  Jill has curated an incredible collection of shoes and accessories for sale.  This pop-up trove of affordable treasures is also only in-store for a limited time.  We have an array of boots just in time for the shift of season, as well as a wide selection of heels.  (We have a prime condition pair of black Varda boots with cream lining.  Italian leather.  $20.  I kid you not.)




And, just for kicks, here’s a sneak peek at our next paraskirt fabric, in the final stages of production.

Sure to cause a camo-tion!

these autumn leaves

Autumn in New York.  Need we say more?
Allow me to take a moment from sipping this hot cider and catch you up to speed.

We are having a STOREWIDE SALE for a limited time, so please enjoy 20% all new merchandise!

Above:  Raven sports our navy Busboy Jacket with matching Garden Skirt–
A pitch-perfect duo that looks great with wing tips and a vintage cap, or tall boots and a beanie.
Warm up by layering a pair of tights under the Garden Skirt and a sweater under the Busboy Jacket.
Très belle!

Above:  Henrietta’s perfect fall ensemble– our ultra comfy Italian Widow dress over knit tights and blue booties.

Stay warm!

Something Wicked This Way Comes

Sorry for the scare.  I meant wickedly fresh threads, still hot from the sewing machine.

If you’re in the neighborhood, don’t miss our ghoulish new window display and growing SALE RACK– now including our Tartan Dustbowl Daughter and Black Cotton Cheongsam Skirtpants.  Great for costume ideas!  (Moulin Rouge?  Wednesday Addams?  Zombie bride?  Jill’s got you covered.)

Bargain hunters, beware!  There’s a price-slasher on the loose.  The sheer sight of our markdowns will make even the bravest of deal-seekers scream (in excitement, we hope).
Up to 75% off select merchandise.

Below are sneak peeks of what’s been brewing behind the scenes.  Try on our new skirtpants, jackets, and Widows today!

Busboy Jacket and China Skirtpants, in Real Navy Twill
Paired with our Boating Tee for a sheer pop of lace.

Here’s a detail of the Busboy Jacket buttoned up.
The perfectly cropped accompaniment to any high-waisted bottom or dress.


Below:  A slew of new Italian Widows, now in brilliant vintage reproduction fabrics.  We have more lilac on the way, not to mention more plaids in the midst.

Uniformly Classic, Undeniably Chic

There simply can never be too many Italian Widows!

We now have a navy jacquard (reminiscent of vintage men’s suiting)
and a heather lilac poly crepe (of which Jackie O would be proud).


But wait (there’s more).

Check out our latest spin on the Cheongsam Skirtpant, now in navy poly twill.

These blue beauties have a smart and structural with a subtle sheen–
perfect for the office or an evening out.
They feature a slightly longer skirt than our traditional silhouette,
as well as a more tapered leg.


Fashion photos of the new pieces in action are soon to come,
along with a few other hot-off-the-press goodies.

Fit for a Fairytale

Jill’s customers are never damsels in distress.  Rather, they are fair maidens and intrepid explorers, often found embarking on urban adventures not for the faint of heart.  Three of our most recent designs encapsulate the essence of our valiant renaissance women– strong, graceful, multifaceted, enduring.  

Our friend Eliza McNitt sports our latest Viking Jacket in goldleaf brocade
layered over our new Italian Widow in black rayon.

Equal parts bohemian, baroque, 60s rock icon, and fairy tale fab.

Absolutely infatuated with this look–
completed with well-traveled leather boots
and earthy accessories (like Eliza’s hawk feather earrings).


This next design is hot off the press.
We simply can’t get enough of our Dustbowl Daughter!

Jill’s newest Dustbowl Daughter features elegant modifications just in time for the seasonal shift.
We’ve added just a bit of length at the sleeve and skirt for a show-stopping silhouette.

Sleek navy satin cloaked in midnight lace, with black accent tie-back.
In few words, a dream.

Try one on for size, and you’ll feel like the queen of the castle.

Diana Jones, Our Latest Muse

Last Friday, our boutique was graced by the presence of a very special muse– Diana Jones, country artist extraordinaire.  Diana is a prolific musician in the realms of folk, bluegrass, and Appalachian Americana.  Be sure to read Diana’s AllMusic biography, and leave some love on her Facebook page!

When Diana tried on our new Viking Jacket in Goldleaf Brocade, her casual-chic ensemble gave us something to sing about.  See for yourself.

We currently have all sizes of this pitch-perfect fall jacket in stock.
Rich brocade, brass snap closures, and black satin trim?
To me, that spells harmony.

Striking Balance

Here’s to beating those Monday blues.

Our latest pieces strike a bold balance between delicate femininity and statuesque structure.

To all our lace lovers and para-plaid enthusiasts– this one’s for you.
(And, at last, a revival of our one-piece jumpsuit!)

Paired with our new Cheongsam Skirt Pant
This mid-arm length top is perfect for layering–
an ideal addition underneath or on top of just about any garment!

This mix of textures is a dream–
we’re loving the balance of structure and softness, rigidity and flow.

That’s right– we’ve brought back the Tartan Paraskirt-
now with fabulous orange lining and black crochet trim (below)
Only 3 in stock: S, M, XL



Above: A playful take on some serious business.
Tuxedo Jumpsuit, in black  poly-cotton
With a finely tailored tuxedo top + wide-legged pant,
these are an absolute must-have.

Here’s the sister to our midnight blue Darted Column Dress, seen here in Champagne.
This piece can be worn as a formal number, or dressed down with an oversized sweater and tall boots.

Fresh Takes on Familiar Faves

Jill and the team are raising the bar as winds pick up and trees lose their leaves.  Chilly mornings, midday hot spells, and nighttime showers?  Bring it on, autumn.

Our friend Taylor is modeling our new Skirt Pant and Squares Jacket.  We’ve played with their proportion and fabric to offer a fresh take on familiar favorites.


Cheongsam Skirt Pant
Black Cotton
Note the longer skirt and a slimmer leg than our previous versions.
Still featuring sleek and functional square pockets!


Squares Jacket
Black drape crepe, with a wonderful weight
Multi-purpose and rich to the touch
(featuring a too-good-to-be-true blazer lining!)

Ideal for business and evening– or pair with a favorite tee, denim, and flats for casual everyday wear.
