One of the great things about TBF (for me) is that it gives me an outlet to discover and spotlight emerging fashion entrepreneurs. I've already written about Quincy-based designer Avra Myers and her line of chic, quintessential basics, A Ruby. A veteran of J.Jill and Club Monaco, Myers has a keen sense of how to make it easier for women to get dressed in the morning - namely, by filling a closet with impeccable, go-with-everything basics. While my favorite are A Ruby's leggings, I'm also partial to the small collection of easy outerwear. This polar fleece coat looks like Friday night, but feels like Sunday morning - perfect for November in New England!
I'm also a new fan of Claire Flowers - a designer out of St. Louis who decided it was high time to create a better stiletto. We all know that heels are hard for the Boston gal - since many of us walk or take the T to get around (on cobblestone streets, no less), we need a sturdy, comfortable shoe. Flowers created a functional design (think, wide-at-the-bottom heel that won't get stuck in grates, a non-slip sole) that's also built with luxe, buttery leather. It's a thoughtful approach to a somewhat intimidating style of shoe, making the stiletto simply easier for women to wear.
