Hello there Fall!

Ahhhh, the smell of crisp fresh air, the crackle of brown and red leaves, and the 
sweet taste of our favorite seasonal drink; pumpkin spice lattes. Autumn is here and winter is quickly approaching, and with two of the best seasons of the year upon us, what better way to celebrate than with a new wardrobe! The trends this season are incredible, with deeper hues, 70’s comebacks, fringe; the list goes on and on! 

With so many new arrivals, we are so excited to help you build up a fresh, trendy, fall wardrobe!

This fall is all about the details, the colors, the prints, and the styles, One of our 
favorite fall trends is the prevalence of one of the most timeless materials; suede. 
Seeming to always peep its way back into fashion, suede is a perfect material for fall. 
Not only is it soft and smooth, it will keep you warm and add a boho-chic touch to 
your closet! We have so many great suede styles, from tops, to dresses, to bell-

Another fabulous trend are the deep hues we are seeing on everything! The maroon,
golden, and navy colors give such a rich and cozy feel to any piece of clothing. We
are loving incorporating these colors with cool toned jewelry, or layering the pieces
with neutral toned cardigans and vests.


The last, and always timeless trend would have to be plaid. You really cannot go
wrong with a good plaid piece, and this season we are seeing it everywhere! Plaid
tops, tunics, scarfs, and vests! We love pairing a bold plaid piece with a simple pair
of leggings or jeans and your favorite booties! The best part about plaid is that it
comes in almost every color! If you tend towards a color that suits you better, or you
are trying to add more color to your wardrobe, then plaid is perfect for you!

As with any set of trends that comes with a new season, there are opportunities to
step outside your comfort zone and try something new! We are so excited about all
the new items we are seeing this fall, and we can’t wait to see you look fab in them 

Don’t forget to tag us on all your social media so we can see how you choose to rock the trends this season!

Getting to know A Cut Above Staff

Name: Rachel 

School and Sorority: University Of South Florida, Kappa Delta

About me: I am a Senior at USF, I am majoring in Communication and I expect to graduate in the Summer. I am pretty involved with my sorority and really enjoy that, as well as involving myself in intramural sports here on campus. I'm also a huge fan of the beach (born and raised florida girl). 

How long have you been working at A Cut Above Boutique? Two years

Celebrity you most identify with: Lauren Conrad (Pictured below) 

My favorite current trend: My favorite current trend would be booties and t-shirt dresses! I love the versatility of a t-shirt dress, and how simple it is to dress up or down. I am loving the bootie trend, whether they're fringe or leather, I can't get enough! 

What do you enjoy most about working at ACA: There are a lot of things I absolutely love about working at ACA! The environment is always uplifting and fun, and it truly makes my job something I look forward too. I also can't say enough about how awesome and inspirational my managers are! 

Friday night go to outfit: Depending on the occasion and the place I plan to go the outfit might change slightly, but my average go-to Friday night outfit would be:
1. Simple loose tank w/ colored bralette underneath
2. Floral/print loose shorts
3. Gladiator sandals
4. Fun simple accessories (layered necklaces, dainty rings, or Bourbon & Boweties)

People would be surprised to know: People would be surprised to know that I was homeschooled all the way up until my freshman year of high school. 

How many pairs of shoes do you own:
Honestly, too many! I love shoes, especially sandals or heels! (even though I'm pretty tall as it is)

It's here! It's here! Our favorite time of the year! Football season is creeping upon on us, and what better way to prepare than a new collection of adorable Gameday apparel! We've got you set with our collection, ranging from cool and comfortable graphic tanks to flowy and classy shift dresses!

Here are a few style tips for putting together the cutest Gameday outfits with the trends we've been seeing!

Graphics Tanks and Tees!

Who doesn't love a lightweight graphic tank!? We've seen this trend skyrocket over the past year, and we have no complaints! The simple material combined with a pop of a fun quote or graphic makes for a top that can be taken from lounge to tailgate in seconds!

Our Graphic Tank/Tee style tip for tailgates is to pair them with your favorite high-rise distressed denim shorts and cowboy boots, or dress it up with jeggings and your favorite accessories! You really can't go wrong with how you style these tops!

Dresses, Dresses, and more Dresses!

We have fallen in love with every Gameday dress from our collection, and know you will too! We love the versatility and ease of a dress, especially if you're in a rush! (let's face it, most of us are!)

Our style tip for Gameday dresses is to have fun with it! If you have a simple shift dress, spice it up with a stack of Bourbon and Boweties or a chunky bauble necklace! If you're wearing a dress with a lot of print, let the dress do the talking and stick to simple accessories!

Check out all of our Gameday fashion on our website:

We love seeing our customers rocking their fab new outfits so make sure to show us your Gameday spirit and style, tag us on social media!

Black Friday TIPS

Black Friday 2013

As black Friday approaches, we sit back and think about what we look forward to when shopping for deals. Is it the door busters, the markdowns or the rush of the crowds that we look forward to?  We feel it's a combination of all three.

Although all of our clothing is priced at less than $50 year round, we always look forward to Black Friday.  It is a time where stores are bustling, customers are getting amazing deals and the holiday spirit is in the air.  It's definitely an exciting time for stores and for customers.

Here are a five tips to help make your Black Friday shopping experience better than ever. 

Tip # 1 - Arrive early.  In order to get the best selection of merchandise plan on arriving early.  While you probably won't need to camp out for days like Best Buy, you should still plan on arriving early to get a good spot in line. Our first person in line for our 2013 Black Friday sale claimed their spot at 5:30am.   (And by the way . . . the earlier you arrive, the more free stuff and goodies we'll have for you - check back for details!) 

Tip # 2 - Limit distractions.  If at all possible leave husbands or boyfriends at home.  :)  We all know that we don't want to be rushed on the busiest shopping day of the year!

Tip # 3 - Wear proper clothing. Wear comfortable clothing that is easy to change out of or easy to slip clothing over as you try it on. This will keep your fitting room time down so you have more time digging for deals!

Tip # 4 -  If you think you want an item, don't put it down! As soon as you put it down to "think" about it someone comes in and swoops it up before you make your decision.  Since we only stock a limited number of our products and since everything goes extremely fast on Black Friday if you see something you are thinking about buying then keep it with you!

Tip # 5 - Be patient with us and with other customers.  Although we do the best we can to, it is possible that you'll have to wait in line either at the door, for a fitting room or when checking out.  Please also be patient with other customers who are shopping.  We promise it'll make your day go a lot easier and everyone will be happy.

Bonus Tip - Join our email list HERE to get the latest updates on our Black Friday deals.  

Be sure to check back with us often this week.  This sale will be the biggest sale of our company's history and you don't want to miss the details!
