 Simply stunning Michael Simon New York Beaded Sweater

This beautiful sweater features intricate beaded elephants, lions and tigers. The detailed work is impeccable. Michael Simon started out as a struggling ballet dancer, taking odd jobs here and about to make ends meet. Eventually he bought a loom machine and began making sweaters. Soon his work was the hit of New York’s top boutiques. His small venture grew into a phenomenal success and his sweaters have been featured in top fashion magazines such as Vogue, Style Elle and Glamour. And now he can grace your closet.

Long sleeved, button-up cardigan. The buttons are as intricately detailed as the animals. If you are looking for something unusual and eye-catching, this is the piece.

 Note:  Colors. Monitors vary widely, so there may be some variation in color. The color is best noted in the description.

Stillness and Quiet Settle the Soul — A 70% off Shoe Sale Doesn’t Hurt Much Either

This is one of those quiet days. The dust has settled from the past two weeks of making reFresh Boutique our own. I love the feel of fine fabrics and the allure of color, the glow of crystal chandeliers reflected in mirrors. reFresh is all of that — and more.

If you have been to reFresh before, I encourage you to come again. The store is arranged so that items are found by type, then size, then color. So, it’s easy to find your way around and to see what works for you. Thanks to my husband’s critical eye and hard work, the store is more open and light. There is more space to move about.

The lounge area offers free coffee, tea and water. The music is calm and relaxing.

Anne Klein Scarf and white sweater

Orange Sweater and SkirtAn asymmetrical hemline is such an eye catcher. The Chico’s sweater tops it off nicely.
