Amy's Illustrated Wish List

Kerri Colangelo

❤️  One of the things that I love most about the shop is seeing the different style of each customer who walks in. The same goes for the team. I get just as excited to see what they wear to work everyday. We all get to see what the customers buy -so, I thought that it would be interesting for you to see what it is that we love and buy for ourselves. I asked Amy, who has done the loveliest drawing on the chalkboard wall at the College Park shop, to curate and illustrate a few things that spoke to her. I think the images she came up with are beautiful and had to share with you. 

Here are five of Amy's favorite things:

1. Amy: Who isn't a sucker for some buttery soft high-waisted denim in a neutral color? Especially from reputable, quality (aka lasting) brands like Jil Sander.

2. Amy: These mules are perfect! They look dainty and tough simultaneously. The design is really smart and balanced, black leather and point-shoe shape with the bow and dainty Chanel monogram.... AND they're comfortable. 

2. Amy: These mules are perfect! They look dainty and tough simultaneously. The design is really smart and balanced, black leather and point-shoe shape with the bow and dainty Chanel monogram.... AND they're comfortable. 

3. Amy: Classic Gucci horsebit gets me every time. I find the bulky horsebit intimidating, especially as a simple belt. It looks a little bit like a well-structured defense barrier and works as a really beautiful statement piece. 

4. Amy: I really appreciate any sort of leather with a heavy patina. This Dolce & Gabbana cash wallet is so beautiful, the alligator texture and wide range of tone in the leather really does it for me. Such a simple and lasting design, the kind of wallet you should keep forever.

5. Amy: I've developed such a soft spot for any of the nylon Prada bags. I have a backpack in the same material that's become one of my favorite possessions, but this little tote is also really special. I'm a big fan of Prada's tendency to make their ready-to-wear very militant and industrial looking.

Watch Out : Dali + Frida

Kerri Colangelo

La terre n'est pas une vallée de larmes | Earth is not a valley of tears. Swatch watch, 1989 with Surrealist Salvador Dalí design. 

This vintage Swatch "Croque Monsieur" came in yesterday. I have always loved Swatch watches because I find it humorous that they are plastic and Swiss made. It reminded me to remind everyone else to check out the Frida Kahlo show at The Dali in St. Petersburg. The show ends on April 17th. Jon told me to take advantage of the audio guide which is complimentary and so my friend and I took our time at the exhibit. It was small and incredibly intimate and this quality made it exceptional to me.

Famous pairing. A projection of Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo at one of the most intimate and heartbreaking shows I have even been to. 

Wishful thinking. Juli and other visitors add wishes to the ficus tree outside the museum.

Streaming band width. Close-up. My own personal Swatch watch from 2009 and my Timex. Both from you-know-where. 

The Dali Wish Tree. (left to right) 1. My wish: To let my friends know how much I <3 them.  2. Me under a canopy of wishes. The tree had such good vibes. I loved it there.  3. I love that this beautiful installation is made of the ribbon that we are so quick to tear off of our wrist and quickly discard. It is a perfect example that something so small and ephemeral like a wristband and a wish or desire can make something so beautiful.

Casa Azul. This is Frida in her garden outside the walls of the house in which she was born and passed away in. It is one of my favorite pictures at the show because it features: "her hairless dog Xolo in a jacket at her feet".

This upcoming weekend is also our Eggstravaganza Easter Weekend filled with prize-stuffed eggs. Stop by on Friday and Saturday and break open some eggs with us :) We will be closed on Easter Sunday.

Happy Easter in advance to all of our lovely customers and their families <3

Putting us on the map :) A special thanks to Breanne DiDomenico of Horizons Vintage for including us on the Orlando shopping map. Everyone is so used to activating navigation on a screen and so, it's such a nice change to hold a physical map -might we add, a beautifully designed map.

Louis? Oui! Oui!

Kerri Colangelo

No one can argue with me when I say that Louis Vuitton is one the best selling brands at the shops. Emails. DMs. Calls. Texts. Everyday we get inquiries about luxury items, especially the highly coveted LV goods. The requests do not stop. Intake. Authentication. Distribution. Our turnover of modern and vintage LV is unsurpassed- bar none.

What is most interesting to me is the superpower of a luxury brand, even a second time around. The namesake alone sells the goods.

I spoke to a customer the other day about her prized purse collection, some of which she was selling to us. I have these conversations often. I asked this longtime customer why she preferred her LV over all other bags. She said that the bag was durable and functional. It lasted a long time. She could set it on the floor. She could mistreat it and abuse it (to a certain degree) -yet it still looked fresh as a daisy. She added that since it is made of coated canvas and not leather, it is lightweight. A good trait for an everyday bag.

I am most curious about what attracts customers to each item. I like to know which pieces get the most usage and rotation. I'm always curious about what our customers look for. Which item is on their hunting list? Most of the time, they say they love the randomness of what appears at Dechoes, the happenstance.

Her Louis Vuitton handbag is her investment buy. It is a luxury accessory that is masquerading as an everyday bag. It fits and functions effortlessly in her life, holds all her belongings, and doesn't quit looking good. More importantly, it makes her happy and improves her life. Aren't we all in constant pursuit of such object?

Hint: Are you on the hunt for something similar? Has something in the store or on our Instagram caught your gaze? Are you anticipating the next thing that arrives? We take the unattainable and put in within reach for you. Maybe a big ticket investment object is a good incentive for you to spring clean your wardrobe. How good will that feel knowing that you worked so hard to declutter your closet inch by inch, diligently trimming the excess of the things you don't need or use anymore? Be ruthless with your cleaning. Do it this week. Eyes on the prize, my friend. Eyes always on the prize.

🍀 Clover Field

Kerri Colangelo

Lucky Charms. It's all in the details of this skirt. Black celluloid buttons decorated with gold-tone shamrock featured at back hemline. Skirt, vintage Chanel.

Upon closer look. A mix of typeset and human detail on the tag. Made in France, Collection 18, 100% laine or wool, 100% soie or silk lining. 

With 🍀 Saint Patrick's Day 🍀 starting off the weekend, I thought that it would be nice to highlight the gorgeous buttons on a Chanel skirt hanging out at the Coytown shop. Discovering beautiful details like this never ever gets old. I liken it to treasure hunting.

Make sure to stop by one of the shops on Friday for a chance to win Dechoes treasure. Up for grabs is a pot of gold, i.e. $50 store credit 🍀. Just say "Lucky Charms" at checkout to enter the contest. Double your chances by wearing green. Go green and triple your luck of the Irish.

Portrait of Mr. Melvin Colangelo.

Many of you had the pleasure of meeting him: a devastatingly handsome black and white Boston Terrier. He greeted customers with a smile and ran around the store making others smile with him.

We love you, Melvin and will miss you.

❤️️ Happy V-Day ❤️️

Kerri Colangelo

Going Dutch? How does that work? What is the etiquette when it comes to deciding whether or not you'll split the bill tonight?

 

It happens only once a year. Just once. Find the right outfit or thing to put you in a good mood for this evening. Anything red or pink is on sale. Just today though. Show up wearing these and there's a clever way to break the ice and let them know you'll be going Dutch. 

 ❤️️  Happy Valentines's Day!

Hugs and Kisses <3, The Dechoes Family
