Feelin’ Blue

February 27, 2013

We’re feelin’ a little blue here at A.K. Rikk’s but it’s not because we’re under the weather! Although there are plenty of hot colors this spring, blue is a major one. Looking around the store, it’s as if there are little blue puddles everywhere.

So let’s jump in them!

We have beautiful ocean-inspired dresses from Tibi, florals from Marc Jacobs, blue knits and tees from rag & bone, caftans from Cynthia Vincent, a 60s inspired dress from Alice + Olivia, and all-shades of blue denim from Hudson Jeans. Fellas, I did not forget about you. There are plaid Eton button-ups, blue-leather Ferragamo loafers, tees from Splendid Mills, turquoise bracelets from M. Cohen, and Nudie Jeans with blue stitching instead of the orange!

Phew! So, we might have more than little blue puddles… more like pools? So, instead, let’s go for a dive!

What I want for Valentine’s Day

February 12, 2013

Since countless commercials, ads, and websites have taken the liberty of telling dudes what to get their ladies for Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d just put out there what I want for Valentine’s Day. 

Don’t waste your money on the open-heart diamond collection from Kay Jewelers. Every kiss begins with A K. All right, all right- I’m done. I’ll just cut to the chase.

Let’s tackle this give-her-lingerie thing. You’re really cute and all, but I’d rather get something fun that I can wear under blouses and sweaters and not just for you. Helmut Lang has these adorable asymmetrical bras that add something extra to an outfit without screaming, “HEY LOOK AT MY BRA!” Plus I bet they’re just as fun to take off. 

Let’s go on vacation. Before you roll your eyes, I realize that asking for a vacation for Valentine’s Day is a little much. I’m not going to sit here like a princess expecting you to pay for an entire trip, but getting me something that lets me know that you want to travel with me is incredibly sweet. Cynthia Vincent’s entire resort collection screams beach, waves, and sand so when I pull that caftan out of the box, first I’ll kiss and thank you, but then I’ll ask you to pass me my laptop, we’re planning a trip.

Please don’t buy me some crazy diamond tennis bracelet that cost you multiple trips to the sperm bank as a donor. If you are going to get me jewelry, why not make it something a little less extravagant, but just as pretty? Marc by Marc Jacobs has some classic pieces, like their Katie Link bracelet, that I can pair with a variety of jewelry I already own.

Lastly, flowers die. They’re pretty, but they die. I mean, you can still get me flowers and I’ll like them, but they will die. Instead, try something creative and get me “flowers” but in a different way. rag & bone has a variety of spring pieces featuring bold florals. How fun would it be to get a bouquet of floral-printed pieces?! Pretty damn fun.

Spring is Just Around the Corner!

December 10, 2012

The weather outside is frightful, but our 2013 Spring Resort room is so delightful. Ok, so that had few too many syllables, but you catch my drift. As it’s getting progressively colder outsider, it’s getting hotter here at A.K. Rikk’s, figuratively speaking. Chris just finished setting up our Spring Resort room and forget eggnog; I’m craving a piƱa colada on the beach. We have so much fun, new, and colorful women’s clothing for spring. Cynthia Vincent, Haute Hippie, Marc by Marc Jacobs, J Brand, Tibi, and so much more!

So come by the store and get psyched about spring… or spring break! Stop by the bar, we’ll fix you a mai tai and send you upstairs and to the right toward the Spring Resort room!
