All of you who read this blog regularly know I am so fortunate to occasionally be asked to do an event in collaboration with California designer Trina Turk. Trina has the most lovely clothing and her beautiful modernist boutique in Burlingame is probably my most favorite spot to shop. I love the people there and I always find something unique to add to the cherished pieces of my closet. I am a bit of a collector when it comes to her things.
This coming Wednesday I am honored to host a special spring shopping and styling event at the boutique in Burlingame. The time is 10:30-1, and anyone who pops in will get 20% off of all regular merchandise. I am also excited because I am doing this in conjunction with Suzanne Bell, a very stylish local blogger.
Suzanne writes AskSuzanneBell where she shares all the cool places she shops as well as great finds and terrific style ideas. I have been following her a long time on Instagram and found so many cute things thanks to her great eye. She’s also a local realtor with her husband and a mom and is a lot of fun. Come join us! We will have refreshments and Suzanne and myself will be on hand to help you find a special piece that is just right for you or for an upcoming event or holiday you may have on the calendar.
UPDATE: This Event has been postponed until April due to both Suzanne and I being ill! Stay tuned for details on the April event which we will be announcing shortly.
A few weeks ago Suzanne and I went up to the Trina store in Burlingame and see the latest collection. We had a ball trying things on and taking photos. One thing about the Trina store is the longer you are there, the more you find. Some things that you have to try on before you see how good they look and feel. I love that they get many many collections throughout a season, so there is always something new in store. Trina creates her own fabrics, which makes her clothes so different from many others and they are designed and mostly made in California. When you go to a Trina Turk Boutique you’ll find bags, shoes, jewelry, sunglasses, resort wear and so many other cool pieces she chooses to compliment the clothes. That is why it is an old school boutique experience to me and rare to find now a days. You have to visit even if you cannot get to our event!
Here is a just a small preview of what is now in store at Trina Turk…
Some beautiful floral silks right now with hand painted design. I am in love with these!
The Cattleya dress is even more beautiful in person. This is a stretch silk! The wrap belt was added.
A great pairing here!
Some great sandals, hats and totes for your next getaway!
The lunchbag clutches are fun.
Another great floral in the Amando dress and cool bag. A nice wedding guest look or dinner out dress.
These chambray wrap Odette pants are so comfy and the tank is darling too.
Suzanne loved this Boho dress with gold accents with gold slides.
More vacation essentials.
The Arboretum dress was perfect for Easter and upcoming holidays.
The Springey dress felt great on in silk georgette and is another great getaway dress.
Suzanne, helped by Dana the store manager looked adorable in the Tamika top and palazzo pant!
In the same fabric I loved the Bonita dress which also comes in a dark navy with this floral. This dress looks great on everyone with it’s neckline and sleeves.
I also thought Suzanne looked great in this Anissa stripe and floral dress which could go from pool to cocktails.
This Cayson dress is super casual, but stylish and would be a summer go-to for me.
Another look at the Odette pant which looked great with the Bree top which is the same as the dress above.
I also like the ease of this Kaiko dress in the snapdragon color. So easy to throw on with cute sandals or put the sleeves down and add a boot in cooler weather. It reminds me so much of a early 70s dress my mom had.
Again resort wear… They have you covered from beautifully made suits to gorgeous coverups you never want to take off
How pretty is the Seavees in Trina’s latest floral design??
