'Fall' In Love With Otto

It seems like only yesterday I was drinking my first iced coffee of the summer...

Today, summer is over and fall has arrived; at least in the retail world it has!

I look around the store and I see luxurious leather coats trimmed in fur, fine tweed suits in shades of plum, and the most adorable sweater dress with a colorful bird pattern on the front. And the handbags - oh Otto fans, the handbags! We have sophisticated leather bags, fun colorful wool bags, and rich suede in the colors of fall. Don't even get me started on the boots.

Chances are, if you are reading this, you've been to our website and seen the pictures. Unfortunately, the website only represents a fraction of our merchandise, and nothing beats seeing it (and touching it!) in person.

So, I encourage you to drop by and see this fabulous collection in person. We get new things every day!

Anni Kuan Trunk Show

Good news everyone!

Anni Kuan will be here this Saturday, April 16th from 12-7. She will be bringing those things we don't currently carry in the store, and we will be offering 10% off all Anni Kuan.

Those of you who have attended Anni's past trunk shows know how much fun they can be! Anni and her assistant Ashley will be on hand to answer any questions and help you find the perfect addition to your wardrobe. I found a great dress from Anni at the last trunk show which never fails to get compliments whenever I wear it.

As always, we will have refreshments on hand so you can raise a glass and nibble some goodies while you shop.

Hope to see you there!

Styling Event

Hello Otto fans!

As Spring struggles to spring forth, we are looking at some of the trends of the season. This Saturday, stylist Dina Rudman will be at Otto from 1-5pm. She will demonstrate some of the trends for Spring 2011 especially when it comes to accessories. She will also have a mini-trunk show of her jewelry. Here is an overview of the event in her own words:

The event will begin with a 10-15 minute presentation on Spring 2011 trends: outfits will be pulled together from the store - merchandised on a rolling rack to give examples of how to style and accessorize together. “Trends” will be a combination of the “store trends” and what has been shown in Fashion Week/Fashion Magazines.

Special emphasis will be made on accessorizing being the biggest trend of the season. Bags, shoes, jewelry, belts and scarves will be arranged to show how to use them to spice up/dress up outfits, really keep the entire look on trend and current, while not breaking the wallet. Same outfit will be shown with different kinds of accessories to show the versatility of looks that accessorizing can provide.

Presentation will be followed by individualized 5-7 minute styling sessions. Clients will be advised on their color palette direction, undertone (relevant for jewelry), style personality and accessory needs. Outfits from the store will be pulled together, with accessories to complete the look.

A mini trunk show of the stylist's fashion jewelry line will be presented; items can be purchased at the trunk show. The stylist will explain how her jewelry is meant to bring attention to the wearer's best features, utilizing the ABC's of style (accentuate, balance, camouflage), while bringing spring colors into the wardrobe.

Beverages and snacks will be served. Each client will be introduced to Styling Services by Modnitsa Atelier at a Special Rate (*discussed at event).

Goodie bags provided by stylist with special offers from Modnitsa Atelier.

We hope to see you there!

It's that time again: Sale time! Huzzah!

We currently have coats, dresses, sweaters, pants, skirts, tops, lingerie, handbags, hats, scarves, gloves, boots, and belts on sale for up to 50% off.

We are clearing things out to make way for Spring. I know, I know, that season seems very far away, but believe it or not, we already have swimsuits!

In addition, we have new spring dresses, pants and tops from Strenesse, Envi, and 3 Dot. So, if you're escaping to warmer weather on vacation, or just want to dream about it, stop by and take a look. And maybe pick up a sweater on sale while you're here...

More Sale!

Not only do we have things that are now up to 50% off, but we have also put our swimsuits on sale! Woohoo! Who's ready to hit the beach?

I gotta tell you folks, it doesn't look like this weather is going to let up any time soon... So what could be nicer than heading to the beach in your brand new (and on sale!) swimsuit? Think about it: you can lay out in the sun, get a nice tan, and take a dip in the cold ocean to cool off.

Take a gander at the website to see some of the styles we carry, or, better yet, swing by the store and try a few on.

In other Otto news... there's really nothing else to say. We're expecting Fall deliveries to begin next week (actually, we've already received some Fall clothing from 3 Dot), so I'm sure you will hear from me again soon. Maybe with pictures! Woohoo!

Stay cool,

You heard it here first, folks (unless you walked by our store recently and saw the sign in the window), Otto is having a sale!

We have a lot of summer clothing 25 % off, a few handbags for 50% off, and select shoes for $99!

Have you been pining after that dress you saw in the window a month ago? Here's your chance to snap it up before the dress-wearing-weather is gone! OK, chances are the dress-wearing-weather will be around for a while yet, so think of all the chances you'll have to WEAR that new dress you bought for 25% off!

In other Otto news:
We have two new jewelry designers, Margo Morrison and Victoria Beckerman.

Some of you may remember Victoria's beautiful belts from when Otto was still on 10th street. Now she's designing simple but exquisite jewelry. Oh, and her belts you loved so much? We have a few of them too.

Margo Morrison is a New York City based designer whose gorgeous semi-precious stone necklaces have caught the eye of several celebrities. Here is a nice piece on Margo (as well as a chance to see some of her designs) on Check it out!

This is Blogger Julia signing off, and wishing you all a cool weekend. May the shopping forces be with you.
