Nolita - Made in Italy

Nolita is the brand that makes a basic a not-so-basic basic. The design, quality, fabrics & prints are all exceptional and unique. This is an all-in-one brand with the luxury of being able to say "Made in Italy". As most brands are now outsourcing their manufacturing to China (D&G, DKNY, BCBG to name a few), it is nice to see that a large percentage of Nolitas clothing is still made in Italy, without the hefty price tag. Hopefully we won't see a change in that in the up & coming years.

Shopping in a stinky economy

Just because the economy is tough, doesn’t mean you have to compromise your fashionable style. We are focusing this season on bringing in great looking fashion at reasonable prices. Buying trendy items like plaid skirts, retro sunglasses, etc., should not cost an arm & a leg. These are items that should be purchased with the idea of being worn over one season, and one season only. Spending over $100 on these types of items just doesn’t make sense. If you are going to be spending more than $100 it should be on good basics that can be worn all year round; good jeans & just about anything cashmere are great investment pieces.
