The Equestrian Girls

30 Jan

Equestrian outfit - Grey club monaco blazer, black zara riding boots

  Equestrian- Ready for the Office!

Isn’t it amazing how incredibly majestic and regal the equestrian look can be? It  has been in the fashion spotlight for the past couple of seasons and we think this style is deeply reminiscent of the English country, straight out of a British novel. We just love how elegant and preppy it is!

For us, this look is a go-to when we can’t figure out what to wear whether it be at 7am for work or at 7pm for dinner. We both wore it last week…luckily on separate days, hence avoiding a major fashion faux pas!

We want that …

27 Jan

We want that…HEADBAND!!! We’re in love with these Deepa Gurnani headbands. The latest craze in Hollywood, these fun designs have our heads literally spinning. We’re loving the free spirited and funky look that these bands create, while still remaning feminine with all that sparkle. Wear them to a party and you’ll be guaranteed to turn heads all night long.

We can’t wait to check these headbands out in person, and bring them back for our Boutique. Stay tuned ladies.

Keep Strutting,

Vera Wang during swimsuit photoshoot for Harper's Bazaar

Coco Chanel once said “Nature gives you the face you have at twenty. Life shapes the face you have at thirty. But at fifty you get the face you deserve.” Judging by Vera’s fabulous body at 62, she’s done plenty of good in her life. As a household name in the wedding industry, Vera Wang has been keeping brides happy for years, with her exquisitely designed dresses. When Harper’s Bazaar put the spotlight on Vera, she did not choose a white gown, but rather bared it all in a black swimsuit. Strutting her stuff into her sixties, we applaud you Vera Wang!

Confessions of 2 Shoeaholics

This week we’re going absolutely BANANAS for shoes. Could it be that even all the holiday shopping could not fully satisfy our craving to shop? Or is it that we are just helplessly, incurably and undeniably obsessed with shoes??? Check out all the new additions to our constantly growing shoe collection. Brown boots: Nine West. Black and white pumps: Nine West. Black loafers: G.H.Bass&Co (Town Shoes). Riding boots: Nine West. Black booties: Boutique 9 (The Bay).

What’s in the Name

23 Jan

PAVLYN – This is the mysterious name we chose for our online boutique and the blog that follows suit to capture our daily inspirations. You might be wondering how to say it and what it means. So for our first post we wanted to explain ourselves a little bit…no actually A LOT, because there’s a lot that falls behind our name.

Linguistically, Pavlyn is the Russian translation for the luxurious bird we all know as a Peacock. To us, a peacock is the most beautiful of all birds, revered throughout history for its deeply symbolic and glimmering feathers.

We believe that a Peacock – the symbol of indulgence, decadence and at times, vanity – lives in every one of us. We all need to be spoiled once in a while, be it by ourselves or others. We all like to indulge, whether it’s a shopping spree, a manicure, or a glass of champagne for breakfast (or is that just us?). And vanity…well, who said that vanity is a bad thing? We love a girl who looks good and is not afraid to show it! But most importantly, just like in a peacock, the most admirable quality in any girl, beyond the cutest outfit or the most perfect pair of shoes, is the confidence with which she can wear her own feathers.

So you can see why when we thought of it, we instantly fell in love with this name. And if our explanation hasn’t convinced you of just how perfect this name is, think about the sheer beauty of a peacock feather….its sublime!

 Keep strutting,
