Once upon a time…has become how I think about what used to be routine.  This time last year, I was returning from my New York buying trip and finalizing all the beautiful orders for the spring and summer 2020 fashion season.  So what did we do this year?  We did what everyone else has been doing during these strange times….we pivoted.  So even though I was not running (literally at times) the streets of New York from appointment to appointment finding all the right looks to bring to Boise for Spring/Summer 2021, the excitement was still there!  I just did it from the safety and comfort of my office at 1109 W Main St, Suite 110 here in Boise Idaho.   So have no fear, you will all have amazing options come spring.  Speaking of options, lets talk about all the fabulous styles arriving weekly for October.


The beginning of fall is just not complete without cashmere, alpaca, and merino wool that spans from classic lightweight materials to ones that will provide warmth on those nearing cool nights.  Add a little nostalgia to the mix, and you will fall in love with the slim fitting Kayle sweater by Nili Lotan.  The blend of baby alpaca will make this one of your softer sweaters of the season.


Another piece that will turn heads is the Dusty Rainbow sweater by Raquel Allegra, in true Raquel fashion with the hand dyed tie dye.  This mix of fall colors and blend of cashmere and merino wool has been super popular!  It pairs nicely with almost any bottom.


We don’t want you to just focus on all the amazing sweaters, so make sure you check out the new Puff jacket from Transit Par-Such.  The soft blue leather shell has a loose cropped fit with hoodie, and the warmth is provided by the duck feathers on the inside.  Gorgeous, and a must have!

This season also carries the comfy casual styles that we found ourselves living in just 6 months ago.  Sometimes all you need is that “something new” and you can feel like a whole new person.  The Callie zip up hoodie by Nili Lotan will do just that for you…and you can’t beat the quality!  It is also great for layering under your favorite jean jacket for a little extra warmth and style.

A great look with the Callie hoodie is the Cristiane slip on shoe by Pedro Garcia.  The cushioned sole and the perforated leather will make this shoe your go to every day.

Now for those times where you have a night out in Boise, lets do it up big ladies!  Pamper yourself first by shopping at Salt by Pepper for your perfect outfit.  Then get dressed up, and make every second count, and do it in the Laza dress by IRO.  This flirty high-neck halter dress with gold flower detailing will make you feel sexy yet comfortable.  So put your hair up, untie the waist, and grab your leather jacket for a much needed night out.  Its time to make a statement!

Or if you want something more fitted, the Spitfire by Porto is a great option!  You will find tucks and gathers in just the right places to make this one of the most flattering dresses on.  We highly recommend this dress for almost all body types!


And with the Spritfire dress we love the Woleta slip on leather shoe by Pedro Garcia.  The low heel will keep your feet comfortable for a long evening out in Boise.


As the holiday season starts, and life gets a bit crazy don’t forget to treat yourself!  You deserve it.  Enjoy October everyone!  I hope to see you all very soon at Salt by Pepper.
