Not Your Momma’s Mister Guy

IMG_9393

If you live in St. Louis, you’ve heard of Mister Guy and their fashionable women’s sidekick, Mister Guy Women’s. For you non- St. Louis readers, it’s an upscale boutique in an affluent suburb of St. Louis, which (confession) I had never shopped because it seemed more like a place my mom would go to buy conservative mom clothes (sorry, Mom). But after crossing the threshold last week to shop their spring and summer collections, I realized all my assumptions could not have been more off base.

They carry a ton of brands that I love. Michael Stars, Milly, and Autumn Cashmere to name only a few. There’s jewelry, shoes, bags, dressy clothes, casual outfits … truly a one stop shop! While I was there, they were also having an Elie Tahari trunk show, which, if you haven’t seen his stuff lately you are missing out. It’s got great lace detail and wonderful silhouettes, that run the gamut from crops to mini skirts to palazzo pants. There really was something for everyone!

While the Elie Tahari Trunk show ended last week, trunk shows are a staple at Mister Guy, with new brands always stopping in to show their new wares. In fact, later this week (May 4, 5, and 6th to be exact) they’re hosting a trunk show for the Italian luxury brand, Peserico. Details are here.

Here are a few of the items I found and styled. That black and white striped Milly midi skirt I’ve been evening for ages (above). It didn’t disappoint! Perfect for a summer wedding. I also love Milly’s striped cropped sweater (below). It has a vintage-y vibe with those muted colors and is great with high rise denim and ankle boots.

And, finally, this gingham top by Elliott Lauren (below). Part off the shoulder, part cold shoulder, but with those practical straps so the shirt doesn’t slide down too far. I paired it with white jeans and sneakers, but this could as easily be dressed up for a night out.
