Fashion Notes

Fabulous, Refined Fall

Fashion is evolutionary and the mix is always changing.  The most recent focus has been less formal clothing for work, social events, theater, church and restaurants.  We had to adapt to that new reality and had a great time strategizing to that end.  You loved our direction and we thank you for letting us build your casual look.

Recently we had an epiphany.  Knowing that you loved casual we felt that you would want to build more refinement into your look.  We defined what casual could mean for you.  Casual means travel.  Casual means work.  Casual means jeans for a Nats game.  Casual means a fine dinner in town or a show at Kennedy Center.  Whatever your definition we have seen you demanding more polish.  The challenge was to find comfortable clothes that would meet your needs and keep the compliments coming.

Now we are at the gateway to fall and your CB team has spun all of our ideas into a simply powerful lineup of fabulous, complimentary clothing to fit any look.  We looked at each and every selection for style, fabric, color, quality and fit.  We vetted each and every piece for polish and looked at each of those pieces to meet multiple uses, casual and beyond.

Starting with our Fall Pre-Season Sale and our exclusive Fall trunk shows we have distanced ourselves from the competition offering simply, stunning, easy care, no wrinkle pieces that just plain feel and look great.  Our great values include the best in jackets, novelty and solid pants, casual outerwear, leggings, shirts, toppers, sweaters, sweater coats and tunics.  The trunk show collections are more splendid than ever featuring your favorites and several new comers. Look for Nina McLemore, Donna Degnan, Bessi of Italy, Emmelle,
Starfire by Charlie Wharton, the Michael Collection, Dianaira, and Joseph Ribkoff to bring an astonishing array of the pieces that you will cherish.

And look to CB to introduce more polish, refinement and color through our prettiest collections ever, including Basler, St. Emile, J’Envie, Beyond Threads, Bigio plus new, beautiful accessories.

For the best of fall you may want to plan several trips to CB covering all of the shows!  The variety and beauty of our fall will put a smile on your face.

Everyone loves a compliment and our fall is all about those smiles.

CB is always about you.  We searched the newest and best to fit your life.  Life has changed but the need to look great hasn’t.  We can’t wait to introduce our new line up.  You will love it and you will be inspired….
