2016-10-21-20-38-37

With fall upon us, everyone is looking through their closets to pull out last year’s favorites. Old faves are great, but consider this… Bell sleeves are in and you can mix this new trend easily with basics from your closet. Many top designers, from Alexander McQueen to Giambattista Valli showed off the Victorian inspired bell sleeve in their collections this year. munkee_1021203155court-flowers

Today a lot of women are replicating the 70’s feel by pairing their bell sleeve blouses with flared jeans. Rock an even more a more dramatic 70’s look when you layer your sleeves with a vest and throw on a pair of our circle sun glasses. A bell sleeve blouse can also take you from day to night when paired with a pencil skirt and a simple heel.

Quarter Moon has many options when it comes to this new trend. We have an assortment of blouses in different patterns and solid colors. If you find dresses to be a better fit for your style, we’ve got plenty of those too. Leave it flowy… or add a belt to your bell sleeve dress. Throw on some tights and boots for the cooler weather. One of our most popular items is our new sunflower top. Perfect with a pair of dark jeans and lace up boots.  Come check out all the new arrivals at Quarter Moon and add something fun and dramatic to your 2016 fall wardrobe!

“I love Mara Mugs because they’re handmade in Mexico; they come in so many fun designs that there is a perfect mug for anyone. They’re a nice thick ceramic that keeps your beverage hot, but also great for chili or ice cream too. I have my morning coffee everyday from my Mara Mug. It’s the best way to start my day.” –Lisa Folmar, QM Buyer and Manager

“I love our tapestries because of the variety in colors, sizes, and styles we have. I probably have too many, but they’re so versatile! I hang one on my wall, keep several in my car as picnic/beach blankets, and use several as sheets. I love the different printing techniques (block printing and batiks) and several use all natural vegetable dyes!” –Katie Haggerty, QM Buyer and Manager

“These bags literally carry a small piece of Mayan culture. I love that they are made from recycled handmade textiles and embroidery. If you’re the least bit crafty, you can see the artistry and craftsmanship. These textiles are made using thousands and thousands of threads and hours of work. They are everything I want in a product.” –Megan Milla, QM Buyer and Manager

Allison’s Pick

“I bought a mid-length Jedzebel wrap skirt just a few weeks ago, and I can easily say that it changed my life. I can’t stop playing with it and creating  new styles every time I pull it out of my closet. I wear it a few times a week, but it’s a different piece of clothing each time. I wear it as a sleeveless dress and high-waisted skirt; it never gets old.” –Allison Kridle, QM Social Media Consultant and Key Holder

“I’ve never loved something more than these tie dye pants. I’m constantly wearing them to work, around the house, or even to the pool. Culture Shop (the brand behind these babies) hand dyes all of their pieces, and the colors last for years after hundreds of washes. Not only do I have pants, but tops and dresses as well!” –Alycea Favreau, QM Social Media Consultant and Key Holder

“I love QM’s socks because we have so much variety. They come in the coolest color combinations making them the perfect gift. There is truly a pair for any inside joke you could think of, or pick  a pair for yourself and curl up with a good book on a rainy Florida afternoon!” –Rebecca Clendinen, QM Social Media Consultant

June Birthstone- Moonstone

The birthstone for June is moonstone. The Romans believed that moonstone was made from solidified rays of the moon, which gave it the power to alter the phases of the moon. Moonstone is known to bring good fortune and enhance the intuition of the wearer. So June babies, adorn yourselves with the gem of the moon and harness its natural powers of love, healing and luck.

On the Fringe

Fringe is a standout trend this season. Once a counter culture staple, fringe is now seen flowing on the long leather dresses of Altuzarra and appear on the runways of Derek Lam as detailed hemlines, cut short and sweet. It’s street fashion turned glamorous and the Spring/Summer runways wouldn’t disagree!10260021_682555455144580_8137527345828697888_nLook fierce in fringe this summer the Quarter Moon way with a boldly colored sundress $44, a tie-dyed bandana $12.50 and circular sunnies $15.
