Way to go, Marylin Monroe!

Tell you what, the folks of New London know both how to make and have a good time. For those willing to look, there's enough character and personality in this place to match any city. Joyce came into our shop looking to find a Marylin Monroe outfit for an upcoming costume party. A flowing white skirt, a cashmere-blend cardigan, and a few haircurling adventures later, Joyce was giving Marylin a run for her money in front of a fan. She joked that had Marylin lived to be her age, they would have been indistinguishable. I believe it.

We currently have the lovely picture you see before you pinned on the wall by are computer - just a little reminder of how satisfactory it can be to satisfy a customer.

Happy Wednesday!

Capes, coats, and slickers!

We're having our first Go Lightly sale! Super-psyched. We have these amazing fur coats, including an adorable lamb's wool cape from the 1950s. We've already sold a few coats today, including this gorgeous, full-length, sheer gold coat to an elderly English gentleman who called me "dear." He bought it for his significant other. I think she'll be impressed.
