SUO snapshots...

Check out our new logo! We love it! It is just sooo SUO!
A special shout out to Matt P. for cleaning it up for us!

This salmon colored crinkle tank dress is so versatile! We've paired it
with a salmon colored cardigan (a nice tonal look), brown day-clutch, gauze scarf, and
a long necklace.

 We love the fit of this puff sleeve top! It is fitted through the waist and has roomy
sleeves and the coral color is beautiful. Looks great with a dark denim, colored bag, and
tiered chain necklace.

 We are loving the positive response to peter pan collars and this sheer blouse
is one of the best sellers! Cute when worn with denim for weekend-wear but also a great
item for career-wear. Try it with a pencil skirt and menswear watch!

Since it's still a little chilly outside, we layered this open weave mint sweater over
our chambray workshirt. We styled it with a charcoal skinny jean, printed cotton scarf,
and grey Melie Bianco bag.

SUO has a new location...

Brea Downtown is a fun and lively outdoor shopping area located
at Birch St. and Brea Blvd. in Brea, California. It's a great shopping, dining, and
entertainment destination and we are thrilled to be a part of this
Orange County hot spot!

Our new store (formerly WineStyles) is located directly across
from the Edwards Theatre.

Our cute cherry blossom banner!

This fountain sculpture is fantastic! A few days ago it was 80 degrees here in
Southern California and it was so refreshing to stand by the fountain!

The view from our loft.
Did I mention we have a loft?!!

Sooo many decisions...tooo many choices!

keep it simple...

The styles for Spring/Summer will be much more feminine than the looks we saw in the Fall.
As the season turns, accessories get smaller and more delicate and apparel gets frilly and frothy.
Although we still love statement pieces...oversized bags, thick stretch belts, chunky jewelry and menswear watches...we are excited to see "delicate" make a comeback!
Whimsical pendants can be worn in multiples.

Simple charms on delicate chains will replace heavy metals and chest pieces.

Oversized estate rings make way for smaller rings that are delicate
enough to wear on almost every finger.

Wide stretch belts will be too constructed for the softer styles of
Spring/Summer. We love our new arrivals...ultra thin belts!...
and color will be key!
Oversized statement bags are great for carrying around alot of stuff
but are much too heavy for lighter fabrications...try a day clutch or medium
sized carryall instead. 

Earrings are getting smaller, too...lots of posts and studs.

As we say goodbye to the colder weather and welcome Spring, we can't help
but be excited by all the new trends that will be coming our way... the delicate
jewelry, the wide range of colors, feminine prints, softer fabrications and
smaller handbags! We've had a strong reaction to our newest arrivals and we look
forward to keeping you updated on all the current trends.  See ya at SUO!

B is for Bob...

I don't know who left this on my doorstep, but THANK YOU!
And I love it! It's a crazy-cool '94 book on Bob Marley and
the black and white photos are so beautiful I want to smile and cry.
Take a look...do you see what I see?
Happy Birthday, Bob.
