I’ve been finding myself spending most of my social media time on instagram. The possibilities for creativity are endless and I love getting little glimpses into other people’s worlds. You can follow me, my username is monkeyandthebug. Are you guys on IG? I would love to follow so leave your UN in the comment section!

A look into our shop…

I wanted to post a few pictures of our shop. We have been adding a lot of inventory and sprucing things up a bit.

I hope you like it!

Mannequin featuring Babylady Inc., Wovenplay, and Les Pompons De Violettes.

I decorated the area with Confetti System pinatas and used a simple moses basket to hold pillows.

I used a mix of new and antique furniture.

I am a bit obsessed with keeping everything neat and tidy.



Stels…


Racks and racks

Aside from running Monkey & The Bug and mothering twin girls, I also co-own a mens and womens wear shop. Stels was born eight years ago by my friend Jon, my husband Dave, and myself. We carry brands such as Rachel Comey, Gary Graham, Robert Geller, Aiko, Suno, Our Legacy, and many more. Stels is currently having a huge 50% off sale. Head HERE to shop.

I wanted to share a few photos of our store which shares a space with Monkey & The Bug. After almost a decade of life, the shop has become my second home. We tried to make it a clean, welcoming, friendly environment and I think we achieved our goal. There are always friends visiting and great music playing. It feels more like a hang out spot than a clothing store. We are located at 334 Newbury Street in Boston, MA. If you are local or ever in the area, pop in and say  HI!

Artist Raul Gonzalez created these beautiful pieces. They are for sale and you can read more about Raul and his work HERE.

We carry Warby Parker in the shop. I am obsessed with the collaboration they did with Suno. Head HERE for more info.

Think Big!

This weeks think big is all about the tiered tutu skirt. We have a gorgeous pale grey tutu made of tulle in the shop and I am obsessed with it. Tutus can be very over the top but this particular tutu, created by wovenplay, is subtle. Styling a tiered skirt can be a lot of fun. I encourage you to play around with it. It can be sugary sweet or tough chic! The possibilities are endless.

 

Chloe Sevigny is always super cool. Here she sports a black tutu with a geometric top. She keeps the look grounded with masculine boots and opaque black tights. We paired our look with leggings to keep the little one comfy.

Reece Witherspoon does a great job of taking a tutu skirt and making it casual. This look is perfect for a trip to the park! We paired the skirt with a straw fedora, charm necklace, and simple tank.

Miley Cyrus is wearing her tutu like a modern day princess. I love the use of accessories to make this outfit pop. What little girl doesn’t love piling on necklaces? This is a great outfit for an early evening wedding or formal event.

That’s all for think Big today. I hope you enjoyed! I want to thank everyone who participated in our sale (more on that HERE) and let you know that the sale will be open for your shopping pleasure for a few more days. It’s 60% off online and 75% in store. If you are in the Boston area and can stop in you should know we have much more available here in Stel’s than online and I added some more lovely goodies to the floor just a couple of days ago. Yay!
