Join Me for a Style Event at Trina Turk!

Today I got the opportunity to see the gorgeous Spring II collection from Trina Turk at the beautiful Northern California flagship store in Burlingame. Next Thursday I'm hosting a special style event there from 1-4. You can see the new collection and get 20% off any full priced items in store, including swim!  It's a perfect time to get a frock for that special event coming up or just see what Trina's clothes are all about and try on a few looks.

The Peggy dress has the loveliest fabric and embellishments!

I have written previously about Trina, who is from San Jose and a native California girl. I love that her clothes embody the California lifestyle and really are made in California. The quality of the clothes and fabrics is fantastic. They have a uniqueness to them that gives them an enduring appeal. I could imagine collecting these pretty pieces to wear over a lifetime. It's rare to see garments made so well in today's world.

Here's a little peek at what is in the store right now. Burlingame is the only Northern Cal location, but it's a good one. It's right in the middle of Burlingame Avenue, which has been recently renovated and is a charming downtown with many bakeries, restaurants, and terrific shopping. 

 I'm crazy for all the details at this store even the fabric on the dressing room walls....

So many stunning dresses! Yet there's much more than dresses...

There are versatile tops like this Coddington sweater. Love the necklace!

There are cool bags and shoes and many kinds of shorts, pants, skirts and jumpsuits!

This Sunset maxi dress reminded me of the late 70s. 
This print is so fun and it comes in a sweater version as well.

 I loved this jacket too and shorts that went with it. I'm a sucker for anything with fringe.

This is only a small bit of this store that filled with beautiful things!
I choose a dress from the Spring II collection which just arrived in store.

(Okay bear with my selfies, but I wanted to show a few of these.)

Adored the Museum dress which also comes in white and has the cutest ball tassels on the hem.

Then there was the Clair, a quintessential California cotton lace dress. So comfy and flattering with a bell sleeve. Could you just see Linda Ronstadt in this circa 1974 or something? LOVE!

I was drawn to this pretty jacquard fabric on the Patsy dress which had the cute trim!

This floaty Nancey top and khakis with jewel trim was more casual still pretty.

Other reasons to love Trina...her fabulous jewelry...
 Just the thing to compliment her modern designs.

 There is also a new activewear line with terrific jackets, leggings and even tennis skirts!!

Don't forget the famous swim section... All you need is here to make your vacation dreams a reality including the cute ice buckets.

Rompers and coverups!

I really want one of these fab wrap one pieces.

There is home decor too...

There are vibrant pillows and rugs and if you cannot live in Palm Springs your home can still have that happy California vibe!

Please come see me next week and even make a day of it and have lunch on the avenue or come later and do dinner.  We will have a fun afternoon with light refreshments and I look forward to showing all the new pretty looks and how you can style them. I will be wearing my new dress. Can you guess what I chose? It wasn't easy. I will share it next week at the event!

I looking forward to meeting some of you and seeing you there!

  1. What beautiful clothing that you look stunning in!! I am thinking that you chose either the Museum dress (my favorite) or the Clair dress! I hope you have a great time!


  2. Kim dear, Swoon! I mean that in the most colorful, happy way. Trina Turk is knocking it out of the park with this collection. I always love the pops of color, bold, graphic prints and the whole California vibe. The white clair is so iconic 70's- love that on you. I'm guessing you went with more color and pattern-you can't make a bad choice with TT. I'm so excited that you are doing this event! I only wish it was a different week, since we are heading out to Los Cabos. I will be there in spirit, tipping a glass of bubbly your way, for this major styling moment, my dear friend. Enjoy every moment!

    1. Heather I know you are a Trina person and you would be perfect to shop with me!! Too bad you will be in Mexico, but I guess even Trina would understand... ;) x

  3. I guess .... the Clair? Love! Am I right? Am I right? What a great selection and I can't wait to read all about the event. So sorry I can't be there.

    1. Dawn.... It was hard. I may be buying a couple,, xo

  4. Kim if I lived anywhere nearby I'd be there for sure, what a great event. So fun and the clothes are beyond pretty, the colours! Very California and so excellent that the clothes are actually made there, such a rarity.
    I hope you've been well xox

    1. Dani, I knew you would appreciate these frocks, especially their beautiful quality and workmanship... Wish you could be there too! x

    You look great in all that you tried on.Curious to know which one went home with you!

    1. Yes! Contessa there are several modified dresses that are similar...I know you will like a lot of the clothes as they are beautiful and bright! Cannot wait to see you. xo

  6. If I lived close by I would certainly be there as it sounds like a fun event and there are so many attractive items including the jewellery and beach cover ups. I especially liked the Museum dress and the Clair which would be so versatile and useful. I wonder if it was the Clair that you chose!

    1. Miss b, I know the jewelry is so chic. The coverups and swim are a good investment as well- so pretty! xx

  7. Love everything Trina Turk and thrilled to know she is also a NoCa gal. I had no idea she had a boutique in Burlingame or that Burlingame has a cute little downtown. Being from the Walnut Creek side of NoCa I don’t often get over that way, but will now make a point of it. Sadly I cannot make it this Thursday. Thanks for all the new insights. LOVE all the clothes on you!

  8. I will be on my way to Round Top but this sounds like so much fun!!

  9. Awesome. Lets meet here when i get back!
