Look of the Week: Shoes!


Before we do our big spring launch there's still time to find fabulous, on-trend shoes at North Shore Exchange.  

One of the top trends for this past fall and winter was the pointy toe shoe -- from mary janes to traditional tweed pumps. 

Open toes got a lot of attention, too, even layered with socks on the runway. Although I think we may prefer to keep our slingbacks for wearing in a warm location. 

Who doesn't love a pretty shoe? We love the embellished look whether on a satin base or leather, with a kitten or sculpted heel, or just simple.  Try a pair in suede that can go with a glamourous evening gown or even dress up a pair of jeans and a blazer for a night on the town.

Look of the Week: Winter to Spring

Annie Peck is Back with Some Transitional Looks 


Before we leave winter behind and welcome spring's bolder colors and lightweight textures, there are still great cold weather finds to uncover at North Shore Exchange.

I've snuck in some great pieces that will transition to spring later, but work great under layers now to keep you stylish and current for the end of winter. 


Take an edgy vest and make it a bit more feminine with a floral silk blouse underneath.  Pair it with a colored denim and Moto boot for a fun look.  Fitiques leather vest with gray cotton hoodie, size M, $95.
