TRUST ME…..YOU’LL LOVE THIS: walk on the wild side

A stylish grand dame once shared with me, “My dear, every room should have a touch of blue, and every wardrobe a spot of leopard.” I have never forgotten her - or her quip! Glancing around my own closet, I spot a leopard belt that was my mother’s in college, a pair of leopard suede gloves from the 70’s, an icy leopard sequin scarf repurposed from my rehearsal dinner dress (an...

TRUST ME…..YOU’LL LOVE THIS: Ann Lightfoot

Of all the jewelry collections we have showcased in the shop over the years, it is no secret that Ann Lightfoot is one of my personal favorites. Not only does her aesthetic speak to my lifestyle, but her jewelry continues to resonate with Dovecote’s broad audience that ranges in age from 30-90+. Whether small and understated or a chunkier showstopper, Ann’s pieces exude an organic elegance,...

TRUST ME…YOU’LL LOVE THIS: Hinson Wu

I love a great shirt. Whether classically tailored or more on the novel side, the key components for me are perfect fit and fabulous fabric. I maintain an edited stable of white shirts in my closet, and the pieces that carry over from season to season are those that fit the best, flattered the most, felt the most luxurious against my skin, wrinkled the least, and held up through a season of wear...

TRUST ME…YOU’LL LOVE THIS: straw accessories

My love for straw goes back to grass mats on the floor of a summer cabin in Maine during my childhood, the little Nantucket baskets women carried as purses, and picnics served from hampers set on rocky outposts by the water. Straw has always been synonymous with my idea of chic, relaxed style. I  live on a lake in the north Georgia mountains and if you glance around our house, regardless of...
