boyfriend take 2

good news--you can stop raiding your guy's closet! yesterday poole shop got the boyfriend shirt from equipment (which is almost sold out, by the way) and today we're getting the boyfriend cord from current/elliott. worn loose and broken-in, this is the style that will carry you through the rest of fall and into winter. don't be scared of the slouch--the cords look way cooler with a little bag in your bottom!

return of the boyfriend

did you hear the news? the boyfriend is back, and this time we're not talking about a jean. the line equipment, founded by sisley restoin (aka longtime partner of vogue paris's carine roitfeld) in 1979, has been resurrected (and we hear our friends at current/elliott are behind the revival). the line's signature shirt is the perfect blend of casual-daytime-meets-menswear-classic. wear it with jeans. wear it with cords. wear it tucked into a pencil skirt...just wear it every day!

60 days...

...until christmas, that is. it's never too early to start shopping, and poole shop just got new navajo bangles (you remember those from last spring that sold out in a week, right?). with prices ranging from $45-$75, they are the perfect gift when you don't know what to give. hurry in, though, we're sure they won't stick around for the next two months.

one of our favorite holidays is creeping around the corner. here's our prediction for the faces you'll be haunted by this weekend:

talk to the hand: perfect for a girl, but even better for a guy, jersey shore's snooki is sure to be the life of the party.

freezer not included: anyone brave enough to try a do-it-yourself version of lady gaga's meat dress will have everyone else at the party running for cover.

cute couple alert: grab your guy and grab a golf club to turn one of the year's greastest scandals into a memorable outfit.

who what poole shop?

image from who what wear
it looks like poole shop is once again aligned with the cute and fabulous as model veronica varekova shows off a ps favorite etoile by isabel marant tweed jacket (tip #2 pictured above) on a recent trip to the museum of modern art in new york city. although we've sold out of the jacket, we love who what wear's styling tip to "wear a ladylike jacket with your worn-in skinnies."

gossip girl + poole shop

spotted: blair waldorf, queen bee of manhattan's upper east side, wearing the bensoni plaid jacket that is currently hanging on the racks at poole shop. we knew the coat was a show-stopper the day it arrived, and we're happy to see that the gossip girl elite is catching on...

vacation time?

is it time for resort already? the magazines seem to think so. check out the november issue of elle featuring one of our favorites, A.L.C., in a piece on tropical evenings. now that we just brought our sweaters out of hibernation, we're ready to stow them away already and get cruising...

fashion foliage

at our new home on the second floor of capitol, we have an amazing view:

all this greenery has us thinking about fall and the beautiful colors that nature provides each year, and it looks like some of our designers had the same thing in mind while creating their collections. here's a little taste of fall's fashion foliage currently in at poole shop:

bensoni blouse $300

ulla johnson skirt $300

tucker tunic $310

we watch rachel zoe, we read the magazines, we've been to LA and now we're psyched to have the luxury of consigned couture at our fingertips through the newly launced site from decades two. we totally dig the "featured closet" function that gives you inside access to consingnors' closets with fashionable finds ranging from a gucci suede trench to a chanel floral silk dress. so even if you're not the wife of a very influential hollywood producer--as consignor number 2842 featured on the website--you can at least dress like one.

seeing red

is it just us or is the red coat storming the front lines of fashion this fall? the look has been spotted over dresses, jeans and everything in between. it just so happens that poole shop opened a box from steven alan the other day and--voila!--a red coat burst forth. simple and classic, you can wear it anywhere with anything to spice up fall's neutral palette.

is it monday yet?

after a relaxing and football-fueled sunday fun-day, we're not quite ready for the week to begin. while we still don't understand zone coverage or the shotgun formation, we do appreciate the opportunity to dress down in tees and sweats for an afternoon highlighted by beer and nachos. when monday morning rolls around, we're not quite ready to wiggle into our skinny jeans, so thank goodness for vanessa bruno for keeping the "sweat" look stylish this season...
