Have you Met Melinda?

You've probably encountered her milling around in her Sunday's best at our Encinitas location and thought to yourself, 'I wish I could pull that look off." At least that's how we feel- Melinda just so happens to be our resident fashionista. She first got her name when Lili's granddaughter came by and was enamored by this lady's charming presence. Every time we do a floor move, Melinda celebrates the occasion with a new look. Let's take a look at how Melinda's taste has evolved over the years...


When the weather warms up, Melinda tends to go for a natural look by visiting our botanical bar. In this look, she opted to drape a shawl of floating lotus.

One of Melinda's favorite accessories is kitchen utensils. In these two looks, she uses both balsa wood and stainless steel flatware to circle the neck. In look 1, a ribbon circles the waist and Melinda recycled printed paper bags to complete a sustainable pleated skirt.  In look 2, she kept things chic with a simple utensil print pencil skirt.

Last Halloween, Melinda opted for a Victorian goth look to get into the holiday spirit. Using our printed kitchen paper to form a pleated strapless dress with a sash empire waist, she elevated the look with a feather boa and draped netting.

Instead of the traditional red-carpet look, Melinda opted for a classic Dash & Albert black and white striped rug, accented by a second mint colorway for the bustle. She completed the look with rustic branches at the neck to keep the Gardenology aesthetic.

A ragged hem sways with linen napkins in assorted neutrals. To top it off, Melinda added the Vietri Lastra jumbo and regular mug as charms at the neck.

So there you have it. Keep an eye out for Melinda the next time you visit our Encinitas location, and please share with us your favorite look!
