The Vernal Equinox

March 20, 2013

The vernal equinox occurred this morning at 7:02 AM, marking not only the start of spring, but also the start of the astronomical year! Since the vernal equinox involves the sun crossing the celestial equator from the south to the north, it’s not something you can see like other astronomical occurrences like an eclipse or meteor showers. Once this happens, the earth begins to change! The days lengthen with more sunlight, snow melts, rivers flood, leaves bud, monarchs migrate, oceans bloom with plants, and the arctics awaken!

All right, did I bore you? This is just a friendly reminder that earth is a fascinating place.

Of course what the vernal equinox also brings, in a non-scientific way, are rain-boots for the April showers, light and bright jackets, dresses that flow with the breeze, loafers sans socks, sandals to set those little toes free, and so much more. With all of our spring deliveries coming in on time, we’re beyond excited here at A.K. Rikk’s and have begun starting plans for the spring and summer. An outside theatre in our back park? Picnics in the park? You’ll have to wait and see!

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!
