Hollis Peeks: Looks to Love
Favorite PB Trends this of Season
Ortigia Sicilia Silk Blue Mosaic Kaftan from Via Coquina
Right at Home
This month, I’d like to highlight what has made Palm Beach feel like home. Having moved from D.C. a little over two years ago, I had always known about the upscale shopping destination, but never truly appreciated the elegance and charm. Now, taking a stroll down the Avenue has become a part of my daily pastime. Steps away from the ocean, I am rejuvenated when the sun is shining and the palms trees are swaying. There is something so beautiful knowing the history rooted on this street dating as far back as 1913. The most enchanting part about this street are the features that emulate Europe. There is always something beautiful in the Vias for shoppers and diners to explore. Curious to know some of my favorite spots? Let’s start on the west end at Via Mizner, named after one of the original developers, Addison Mizner.
There is a European flare that I find so endearing when I come visit all the captivating boutiques. First stop on my list is the emporium of fine artisan treasures, Via Coquina. Tucked away on the west end of the Avenue, I am instantly transported to Italy when I walk through the door. Filled with treasures collected through the Mediterranean, I always can count on this store for a pretty wardrobe addition or a special to gift. From fine jewelry from Capri to home accessories from Greece, you have a range of unique artisanal collections to choose from while shopping. This Ortigia Sicilia caftan dress is one of my favorite picks for this month. Made in Como, Italy and 100% silk, this is one of a kind and cut by hand to perfectly assemble the dress. The cobalt blue stood out and caught my eye. Style it for a night out in Palm Beach or for an upcoming travel destination.
Catherine Prevost Athene Dress
Squeeze the Day!
Next on my list as I wanderlust through one of my favorite vias is a hop, skip, and a jump across the courtyard: Catherine Prevost. One of the newer stores on the avenue, fashion designer Catherine Prevost, really captures the brightness and color Palm Beach has to offer, especially with the delicious Athene dress covered in lemons and oranges. The best part about her pieces is they can be worn day or night. While her feminine collection may give you island vibes, they are made in England. Perfect for women of all age ranges, this is my dress pick for spring leading into summer. It’s elegant, bright, and refreshing.
Hollis in Paris
Back to my worthwhile stroll along the main street with everything your heart could ever desire, my last stop for this month’s shopping excursion Style Paris. “The Season” is in full swing, and with so many northeasterners moving down, there’s no slowing down. Therefore, I wanted a look that would make jaws drop for one of the many events I have coming up during the busiest times of year. As I was walking to grab some lunch, I was immediately stopped by the vibrant color of this season’s chicest styles. The hot pink skirt packaged together with the black belt, was exactly what I envisioned! Pair it with some gold hoops and you’re sure to turn heads.
This is what I love about Worth Avenue. While it has a reputation of being exclusive, it has a little something for everyone and for every occasion. I always know I can count on this street to fill my soul with beautiful designs and excellent fashion choices. Until next month, be sure to wander around Worth Avenue, and if you see me, say hi!
All looks can be found in charming Via Mizner
