What’s New: September


September has awakened an invigorating spirit of strength within the Terra Cotta Woman. Introduce yourself to a new beginning with a contemporary perspective to the art of dressing.

From the runway, to the everyday, women are embracing the decadence of opulent, richly-inspired fashion. Whether it is through boldly textural garments, metallic leathers, or glistening gems, the Terra Cotta Women is looking forward to a fall season of opulent transformation.

“…We know the fashion message for Fall 2012 is all about strength. This polished, commanding feeling carried over into accessories as well and is best exemplified by the above-the-knee boots..(and) rich jewel tones… seen on the runways from New York to Paris. It was an opulent season to say the least, but one with looks simultaneously appropriate for today’s businesswoman. Attaché bags, animal prints, and rich embellishments pulled double-duty as they’re well suited for both work and leisure…. Accessories made a power play for fall, standing on their own and owning it—and isn’t that what this season is all about anyway?”- Vogue.com

 Miz Mooz, a fantastic New York based label that fearlessly delivers this fall in the most sumptuous textures. Luxurious abundance doesn’t stop at lavish handbags or jewel-toned coats, have you seen September’s stylish shoes?

The latest collection from Miz Mooz offers a feeling of unstoppable confidence with wearable sustainability. It’s a delicate balance of looking good and feeling good, but our customers agree.. these shoes have a rich sole that offers incredible comfort… yes we said comfort.

We let our store kitty, Miss Amelia, chose this season’s must-haves:

1. Lance Oxford

2. Amelia Boot

3. Franklin Oxford in Brown & Black

Cheryl Matson from Miz Mooz, was gracious enough to answer some our questions about the company’s humble beginnings, their eclectic customer, and the inspiration that fuels their unique designs.

“Miz Mooz began life as a private label in a handful of NYC stores just over ten years ago, with our broader wholesale business starting in 2004.  The first few years it was really just a two man operation, until I came on board, providing a much needed -if I do say so myself – female voice.  In the past three years we’ve grown from a trio to team of nine, and as you pointed out, I am just barely the eldest of the group at the ripe old age of 32.

Miz Mooz shoes reflect the energy and personalities of our team, as well as those of our customers. We’re a unique and fun bunch, we know what the trends are, but would prefer to set our own than follow someone’s lead.  Like us, the Miz Mooz woman appreciates quality and craft, but also wants shoes with quirky and interesting details that will set her apart from the crowd.  She’s sophisticated, has a killer sense of humor, and doesn’t take herself too seriously.  You can see these characteristics revealed in our vibrant hand burnished leathers, unexpected hardware and adornments, and contrasting materials.”

It is time to relinquish the old and look towards the new. Hobo is offering the most exciting promotion this month! Join us, September 14th-30th in our Purse Trade-In event! Bring one of your old handbag into Terra Cotta, and get a $50 credit towards your NEW Hobo purse! We will donate your old bag to  our local charity, Dress for Success, keeping you up-to-date, organized, and helping the community at the same time! You should be so proud of yourself.

Let’s adopt this feeling of opulence by filling our fall wardrobe with jewel-toned delights and embracing a giving heart. Become inspired by burgundy and honey gold hues of September, welcome a new pair of unique Miz Mooz into your closet, and recycle a past treasure in order fall in love with a new one.

Ciao, Terra Cotta
