Bliss Fall Photo Shoot
Sneak Peek

Our Fall photo shoot brought us to Mackworth Island in Falmouth ME. Our model, Sophia, is one of our very own Bliss girls – blonde and beautiful, we couldn't have asked for more. Our photographer, Christina, has been with us for many shoots – you can view her work and our last shoot here. And our set stylist, Liz, made gold leaves that mixed fall and fashion flawlessly. We featured CP Shades tops, Prairie Underground hoodies, CItizens of Humanity denim, Velvet sweaters, Frye Boots, and Nashelle & Kris Nations Jewelry. Enjoy : ) 

Digital Technology Meets Designer Denim

Adriano Goldschmied brings us their most desirable jean yet. AG's Digital Luxe Denim uses a hyperreal digital printing technique, meaning they print a photo of distressed jeans onto their ultrasoft sateen fabric. The result? A weathered appearance of vintage jeans with 3D rips and holes. This high-definition imagery is inside and out – even the AG emblem is printed on. Even better, this technology is on their ultrasoft sateen fabric. The fabric is silky smooth and stretchy, you'll be excited to put them on in the morning. Cheers to a new distressed denim! 

Pick up your new favorite jeans at Bliss today : )

New Year, New Wardrobe

Starting the year fresh.
New Year, New Wardrobe New Year, New Wardrobe

I must admit, I was a little sad to see 2013 end. Not only was it a great year for Bliss (ahem, we launched our website!), but it was also a life-changing year for me and my husband as we welcomed our sweet baby boy in November! Part of me wants to hit the pause button and savor every special (and sleep-deprived) moment, while part of me can’t wait to see what the new year will bring.

A new year means new resolutions – or plans, as I like to call them. Plans to slow down and enjoy all of the firsts that this year will bring being a new mom. Plans to take a family vacation (that will certainly include a beach!). Plans to take more risks with decorating my home. And...

Plans to update my wardrobe. Since I was pregnant the majority of last year, my closet took a bit of a backseat to onesies, rattles and swaddling blankets. So as you can imagine, I’m ready to shop. Here’s what I’ve got my eye on for the new year:

Striped Blazer. A great blazer can take jeans and a t-shirt to a whole new level. It’s such an easy way to look pulled-together and polished – something that will be essential after pulling an all-nighter with my little one. I’m loving this striped blazer by Velvet. It’s a little more unexpected than classic black, but still works as a neutral. Available in navy or black stripes in our stores, it’s a great transition piece that I plan on wearing all year round.

Riding Boot. For a while now, I’ve had a major crush on equestrian-style riding boots. So it’s no surprise it was love at first sight when the Dorado Riding boot by Frye arrived in our stores. The dark green leather and slim buckle straps create a sleek, timeless look. These were my first purchase of the new year – and I couldn’t be more happy with them.

Denim. After 9+ months of swooning over our new denim arrivals, I have quite the wish list compiled. At the top of that list are 7 for All Mankind’s Slim Illusion Skinny in elasticity black and J Brand’s high-rise Rail (slim straight-leg) in starless. I’m hitting the refresh button on my denim basics.

Really, I could go on and on about my plans for updating my wardrobe – but I think that’s a pretty good start. Along with my personal plans, there are a lot of Bliss plans too. 2014 will be our first full year of – and without spoiling too much, we have some great things coming your way!

Here's to a blissful & stylish new year,

Baby Bliss

The Countdown Is On...
Baby Bliss

With each day that passes in October, I've been gearing up for maternity leave. Yes, I'm having a baby boy – due in just one week! I've never felt more excited (and nervous – who am I kidding!) about this new chapter in my life. 

It's funny though... because amongst all the prepping and planning for baby, I find myself getting sentimental about leaving Bliss for a couple months. For a while now, this blog and our website have been my main focus. Plus, I'm really going to miss seeing the lovely ladies of Bliss on a daily basis! Transitioning to the sidelines may be hard at first, but I feel confident that Bliss will be in good hands while I'm away.

Meet Laura. Or maybe you already have – she's been working in our Portland store for about a year now! For the past month I've been training her and I know she's ready & eager for the job ahead. 

Fall in Love...

Fall Photo Shoot

Behind the Scenes of our Latest Photo Shoot
Fall Photo Shoot

Just over a week ago we spent the day at Hardy Farm in Fryeburg, Maine – the charming location of our fall photo shoot. Nestled in the White Mountains of Maine, Hardy Farm is a restored 18th Century Farmhouse with an attached barn featuring white-washed wooden walls, original barn doors, expansive windows and high ceilings. If that wasn't enough, their grounds boast stone walls, herb gardens and the perfect little clearing in the woods – all of which we captured that day. 

With clouds looming, the moody weather just added to the beauty of our surroundings – and our new fall collections. Denim, leather bags & boots and luxurious cashmere sweaters all paired together for our dream fall wardrobe. Capturing every detail and look was our photographer Christina Wnek; we can hardly wait to reveal the photos online (coming soon!). Working along side her was our set stylist, Liz Lapan of Paper Posy Designs. We're still swooning over her handmade flower crowns. Sigh.

Our team also included Holly and Ellen from Primp Salon in Falmouth. Their talent and expertise in hair & makeup made each look we put together even more beautiful. 

Until we can share all the photos with you, here are some behind the scenes images that I snapped throughout the day. Enjoy!

Here's to a stylish (and hopefully long-lasting) fall!

<3 Keriann

{A special thank you to everyone who helped make this photo shoot a success! We're already looking forward to the next one.}

Tailored by Joe's

A New Collection for Fall from Joe's Jeans
Tailored by Joe's

New to our stores for the fall season is Joe's Jeans special collection of denim suits – "Tailored by Joe's." The Ankle Trouser and Suit Jacket arrived about a week ago, and we're already getting great feedback about these sleek & sophisticated options from Joe's. Trust us, these trousers and suit jackets are an instant confidence booster... just what you need before that big presentation at work or blind date!

The Suit Ankle Trouser is a great piece for the workplace – and beyond. The "Never Fade Black" denim is stone washed and given 100 home washes to insure that it truly will never fade. Since our style is more laid-back here at Bliss, I can't wait to pair these trousers with a half-tucked in graphic tee and some casual sneakers. Oh, and a cargo jacket once the temperatures drop!

The Suit Jacket – available in "Never Fade Black" and a dark denim wash – is the definition of timeless style. This beautiful jacket pairs well with trousers, skirts and denim making it super versatile in any woman's closet. 

Hurry in to our stores to check out this new collection from Joe's Jeans! We have a feeling you won't be disappointed.

Our Citizens of Humanity Trunk Show starts tomorrow (at 10am!). We hope that our daily blog posts over the past 10 days have helped inspire your next denim purchase! 

Now that all the girls from the stores have dished on their favorite COH jeans, it's my turn. I'm almost 7 months pregnant and at first, I thought about excluding myself from these series of blog posts. After all, my wardrobe these days consists of empire waist dresses, leggings, tunics – and sweatpants as soon as I get home from work! This all turned around for me last week when I received a pair of COH maternity jeans. I've worn them 3 days within the last week; needless to say, I've found my new go-to jean (at least for the next couple of months!).

The Maternity Avedon Slick. It's skinny leg, black stretchy wash and high belly panel were love at first sight. It felt wonderful to slip on a pair of jeans again – especially since denim was such a huge part of my wardrobe before I got pregnant. Trust me, these are a must-have for all those soon-to-be-moms. I don't know how I went 7 months without them.

Although we won't have any maternity jeans at the Trunk Show, you will be able to special order a pair (or two!). With fall fast approaching, you'll be glad you did – the Maternity Avedon Slick will fit perfectly into your boots and look great paired with all your cute maternity tops.

Next purchase from COH?

My "after-baby" shopping list keeps growing and growing with all the beautiful new arrivals for the fall season! Since I love my Maternity Avedons so much, one of my first purchases will be the Avedon Ultra Skinny in Midnight. Made from a soft, stretchy velour, I plan on pairing these skinnies with my Frye Melissa Button boots and an oversized cable sweater. 

Stay tuned – we'll be sharing all the exclusive event details later today!
