Honestly, one of my top five favorite things about New York City is the shopping. The City has not only the universal designer shops that we all love, but it has the most amazing collection of privately owned clothing stores. I was pleasantly surprised to find that a number of these shops cater to those of us with modesty in mind.
I recently got to talk to the owner of one such NYC shop and I’m so excited to share her shop, Mezzo (or @shopmezzo on Instagram) with my readers. The skirt I’m wearing here is from her shop and it speaks volumes about her stock of beautiful, quality items. The skirt is fully lined and is a lovely, slightly structured, partly metallic material.
For the sake of feeling festive, I paired the skirt with a ruffled blouse I purchased years ago from Ralph Lauren and a tailored tweed jacket. Oh, and a pinch of cobalt blue with my pumps and belt..
I love finding new modest clothing retailers to share with you ladies. It’s so empowering to be able to support the brave entrepreneurs who step out from the crowd to bring us beautiful, modest clothes! If you’re not fortunate enough to be a NYC local (I’m sure not!), Mezzo posts much of their merchandise on Instagram and you can place orders either by phone or email!
