Metallics are the New Black

Metallics are the New Black...

 

You heard me right ladies, we all have that staple black bag and those go to black shoes that absolutely go with ‘everything’ in your closet that make running out of the house effortless and easy… I’m calling the kettle black.  Though it is as timeless and classic as it is effortless, there is a new neutral in town and it’s bringing on the sparkle!

 

Metallics are here to add a bit more shine into your sunny days!  Champagne, antique silver or a soft rose gold is as neutral of a companion as any of your blacks, browns, beiges and greys but with a bigger attitude.  A soft silver or gold will compliment any color combination, print or pattern.  So swap out that go to black bag for a Remi and Reid champagne reversible tote, maybe an MZ Wallace silver metallic linen threaded cross body bag, a Carla Mancini metallic leather shoulder bag or a Mighty Purse metallic leather clutch!  All beautiful metallic accessories in our store and online now!

 

So you’re a shoe girl …try our favorite handmade leather CYDWOQ sandals in the antique silver.  The muted metallic tone goes with every maxi dress or summer combination your wardrobe has to offer and are ridiculously comfortable to wear with their hand molded leather arch and leather sole (we all own a pair here and no one will tell you different).  The next best thing to walking barefoot… and they will take you wherever you need to go, from outdoor adventure to poolside cocktail party, from New York to LA! 

 

If you're looking for a statement necklace to top off a basic look, add your bit of summer sparkle with Deepa Gurnani necklace, layering bracelets or earrings!  These fabulous hand beaded pieces in tones of golds dress up any basic black dress or white tee and denim cut offs for an effortless boho look.  BEje also offers hoops in everyones favorite new alloy--rose gold.  That lovely soft pink hue will warm up any look this summer!

 

We've got the sparkle covered, come discover something new and wear it your way!

Deepa Gurnani

The Holidays are over and 2015 has greeted us with open arms.  I have transitioned from drooling over sweets and treats of the season to drooling over new fabulous spring product that is rolling in with the New Year!  The snow may have not left the ground yet but the fresh fashions are a welcomed refreshment and a glimpse of hope that spring really is just around the corner!  There is one new designer at Details in particular that has me absolutely and completely one hundred percent mesmerized—Deepa Gurnani.


The fine detail and craftsmanship in Deepa Gurnani’s hand beaded, leather backed jewelry line has me staring in both wonderment and adoration.  Deepa hand beaded pieces for Alexander McQueen while studying at London’s Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design.  The prestigious training and creative influence is completely evident in the couture standards of her wearable works of art. 


This line is not only well made, did I mention the jewelry is absolutely stunning?  Stand out, jaw dropping pieces in beautiful metallic tones with pops of vibrant color that only need a blank canvas to shine on!  I encourage you to be daring and dress Deepa down with a white tee shirt, jeans and your leather booties or dress up your favorite basic black pieces that have become dull staples in your wardrobe!  Any way you wear it, you will sparkle and shine!


Catch a fleeting glimmer of sunshine by checking out Deepa Gurnani’s warm metallic, spring inspired jewelry line at Details and detailsdirect.com and share our excitement!

S’well Bottles…

      …Well,

                   They’re pretty S’well.

 

Most Important, S’well Bottles are good for you and they are good for the environment. These reusable safe bottles are beautifully crafted and composed of non-leaching and non-toxic 18/8 stainless steel.  60 million plastic water bottles are used every day in the US, one S'well bottle reduces this consumption.   For every S’well bottle sold, a portion of the proceeds go back towards A Charity partner Including WaterAid, American Forests, and Drink Up to provide clean drinking water around the world.


S’well bottles fit in the console of your car as well as the bottle holder on your bicycle.  So however you commute, S’well fits.  Whether you need a bottle small enough to fit in your purse, or big enough for music in the park (25oz holds an entire bottle of wine), for the yoga studio, school lunchboxes, and the boardroom, there's a S'well option for you.

 

S’well bottles are perfect for a day at the beach or a yoga session after work, keeping liquids cold from day to night.  Coffee & tea stay steaming hot and fresh throughout the day. Drinks stay cold for 24 hours and hot for 12 without any condensation on the outside, ever. Ice stays in your bottle and steam stays trapped with our cap that prevents leakage, and can even hold carbonation.


These enticing bottles have been created three sizes: 9oz at $25, 17oz at $35 and 25oz at $45 each available in dozens of vibrant colors and finishes.  A truly simplistic and beyond beautiful design that looks great in your hand or on your desk (without leaving coffee rings on your paperwork).

Mickey Visits the White House to Support Women in Business

Wednesday, November 26, 2014 1:32:07 PM America/Chicago

Mickey in Washington 

Women Business Leaders from across the country, including our very own Mickey Judkins, met in Washington for the Top Women In Business Brief Administration… 

Wisconsin Business Leaders Visit White House to Support Women in Businesses

 

Washington, D.C.Women business leaders from across the country, including Mickey Judkins, CEO, Details, met with Maria Contreras-Sweet, U.S. Small Business Administration Administrator; Carla Harris, National Women’s Business Council Chair; Megan Smith, U.S. Chief Technology Officer; and other senior Administration officials at the White House on Monday to discuss resources for women in business and the importance of women business leaders in advocating for broad economic policies ranging from intellectual property to trade to immigration.

 

“Women lead many of the businesses that are growing and shaping the 21st-century economy, and it’s critical that their recommendations are considered both in the boardroom and here in Washington,” said Contreras-Sweet. “It is wonderful to meet with so many women executives and hear about how SBA and the Obama Administration can continue to support their efforts to make our national economy stronger.”

 

Mickey at the Whitehouse

At the meeting, organized by the White House, the National Women’s Business Council and Business Forward, the discussion focused on ways for improving access to capital.

 

“Women-led businesses are the fastest growing segment of our economy, with an estimated impact of $2.8 trillion and more than 23 million jobs. In Women’s Small Business Month, it’s as important to highlight this contribution as it to call attention to the challenges that women uniquely face when it comes to raising capital, entering new markets, and growing and scaling their businesses. We must address the barriers to entry that too many women in business face,” said Harris, who is also Vice Chairman of Wealth Management at Morgan Stanley. “And we must work together to do so. This meeting of women leaders and Administration officials is an important step to remedying the issues and moving the women business ownership agenda forward.”

 

“Women business leaders are powerful advocates for meaningful policy change that will impact both our business bottom lines and our communities,” said Mickey Judkins, CEO, Details, in Eau Claire, Wis. “It is a privilege to join so many successful women at the White House to discuss ways to help grow our businesses."

 

Participants chose between three breakout discussions on technology, access to capital, and federal resources. A conversation with panelists from the public and private sectors also examined various ways that Washington matters to women in business.

Poncho Trend Alert

Tuesday, September 9, 2014 10:41:10 AM America/Chicago

 

Alashan Cashmere Poncho

Trend Alert: Ponchos

You may have seen our favorite new accessory make its debut in Details this spring and now it’s hitting the runways and the streets.  Ponchos are most definitely here to stay!  The poncho has made a huge statement this year in the fashion game as a fabulous layering option and we love this versatile, practical new look.  The poncho has been an elegant dress topper for summer events and a great option for light coverage into the evenings or in and out of summer air conditioning.  The lux hand lends a beautiful drape that is a statement in itself for fall.  Layer the poncho over a long sleeve tee or turtleneck for an instantly chic and effortless look.  It’s a great cardigan alternative to continue layering over dresses into fall. 

 

Alashan Cashmere has created a versatile and luxurious poncho that can be draped across the body to create 2 different looks and also converted into a scarf which is absolutely fabulous for seasonal transitions!  Wear Alashan’s poncho as a cozy and completely practical scarf option over your winter duds and as you sit down to dinner or coffee casually convert your cashmere into an effortlessly beautiful poncho layer.  Alashan offers a beyond soft cotton with a touch of cashmere (95% Cotton 5% Cashmere) that is great for spring and summer as well as a luxurious 100% cashmere option for fall and winter.  Both are selling great and are available in 56 seasonal colors so there is no need to restrict yourself to only one!  A terrific value at $88 for the cotton cashmere blend and just $138 for 100% cashmere. 

 

Eileen Fisher has also been on the forefront of the poncho trend offering organic spring and summer options in lightweight gauzy cottons and linens that sold great.  Her fall collection is equally elegant in soft lightweight merino wool offering a rich and saturated color pallet of rusts and blue violets.   The wool offers warmth that will keep you cozy on the go.  Wear as an outer layer as we watch the leaves change color and wear indoors when the frost falls.  Eileen’s minimal sensibility turns the poncho into an important fall accessory.  The vibrant color is brilliant paired over a black silk camisole or turtleneck with a pair of slouch pants or boyfriend jeans.  Effortlessly chic, less is more this season. 

 Eileen Fisher Poncho

Whether out and about, dressing for dinner or transitioning between seasons; a poncho will become your go to layering piece.   Utterly practical and beyond elegant, you can’t go wrong.  Stop in and visit us in the store and we will happily dress you up in our endless options or take it upon yourself to browse our online shop!  Fall is upon us so ready, set, layer!

Ogon Wallets

Wednesday, June 4, 2014 12:15:42 PM America/Chicago


OGON is the original creator of the aluminum wallet. An idea that was conceived in Sweden, produced in France, and now available here at Details! Ogon Designs created a durable and protective credit card case that is sleek and aesthetically pleasing, but most importantly the aluminum wallet protects your credit cards from a possible demagnetization and from electronic data theft. Modern cards are easy to use; however holders are exposed to bank fraud and identity theft.  Cards have a security weakness that can be scanned or distance hacked. The protection of an Ogon wallet is a necessity for travel and not a bad security system for everyday use!  

OGON aluminum wallets are compact, strong, light and easy to use. A hard case wallet is the same size as a normal leather wallet with extra protection and high style. Latched closure is sleek and easy to use and the inner tear proof PVC pockets hold approximately ten credit and/or identification cards.

 

The Ogon Wallets are available in a gorgeous array of colors, as well as a new quilted design that we LOVE!   The Ogon Zipper Quilted Wallet is the partnership of Ogon and famous French designer Eric Berthes who has most notably worked for Chanel handbags. The chic hard shell quilted wallet offers superior protection against credit card theft along with unprecedented style. This is a modern wallet for modern times.

Mieko Mintz

Monday, May 12, 2014 10:48:20 AM America/Chicago

Mieko Mintz Kantha Jackets

We are so excited to be featuring Japanese designer Mieko Mintz here at Details.  Mieko creates one of kind contemporary garments and accessories from heritage rich Kantha cloth.  The cloth is handcrafted from textiles collected by Mieko’s world travels, the textiles are then carefully arranged, layered and bound together by hand stitching creating beyond beautiful fields of color and texture with a luxuriously soft hand.  Mieko’s Kantha cloth garments are created with the labor of love, each one hand made and as unique and inspiring as the next.  

Kantha is a traditional type of embroidery with a long and distinguished heritage. The handcrafted cloth was popularized in eastern South Asia, specifically Bangladesh and the Indian states of West Bengal and Odisha.  Old saris along with silk or cotton cloth are stacked on each other, the common running stitch covers the entire cloth binding the layers together and creating a new fabric, the Kantha cloth, which is then traditionally used for a wide array of garments and household coverings. 

Each unique creation tells its own story and holds its own history.  The cloth is believed to symbolize prayer and ward off the “evil eye.”  Traditionally Kantha were supposed to help keep their wearers safe from harm and aid in obtaining happiness and prosperity, which Mieko wishes for her garment’s wearers as well.    

 

Born and raised in Sothern Japan, Mieko Mintz is now a New Yorker selling her line of culturally rich clothing in her small Soho shop.  Her signature line includes jackets, scarves and jewelry, each with its own unique variety of colors and prints.  We are pleased to have a carefully curated collection of jackets and scarves at Details this spring for a short time.  Mieko Mintz is a must see, the hand and the detail work in the cloth is an art in itself that is deserving of a close and appreciative eye.
