The NEW Ruth Shaw

The NEW Ruth Shaw

Baltimore’s premier upscale boutique is starting the fall with a new home – The Shops at Kenilworth. The store itself is glossy and gorgeous…as are some of its goodies, which can give your season the perfect kickoff.

Winter is Coming…Boots, boots and more boots – they are high and they are low. From #runwayapproved leopard to lace-ups, you’ll find a bevy of wearable styles. @VeronicaBeard suggests a cool animal print to modernize any sportswear look for fall. Styled to hit above the ankle, a stacked cone heel gives added newness to this closet staple. Sport the suede wedge in a cozy slip-on style. Both found at the new Ruth Shaw @KenilworthShops

Denim – the All-American classic – continues to rock the runways. @RuthShaw is on top of it, showcasing the latest in jean trends. From high-low hemlines to the classic straight-leg, get out your acid washed bell bottoms or button-ups and show off your #lovefordenim this season.

Après ski style crewneck collar sweaters keep us cozy this winter. Look for a lot of red this fall. Fashionable for the fireplace and for football games, multicolor patterned knits from MSGM are front and center. Made in Italy, these wool-blend sweaters are haute enough for the streets and for the ski lodge.

Textured metallics finish off chic shapes in handbags this season, thanks to the collection of #JeromeDreyfuss, who just happens to be married to my favorite designer, Isabel Marant. Dreyfuss’ handbags are trendy, yet understated. On display @RuthShaw, circular shoulder bags are funky and functional.

What’s black, white and red all over? Turtlenecks make a turnaround @rag-bone in this oversized allover plaid piece with a zippered shoulder for added style. And of course, the ribbon runs through it – love #sweaterdressing! #RuthShaw pairs a skinny red pant with black piping to create the ensemble. OH so haute! This is what I call ‘dressing for the weather’.

It’s a new day, it’s a new dawn…of a new designer. Welcome to the world of Malaysian-born Han Chong, founder of #Self-Portrait, a fresh collection of feminine dressing. #RuthShaw shows off one of her beautiful lacy creations, lined in all the right places to show just a hint of skin.
