Just in time for those spring break getaways and cruises, Nitsa’s is launching a new resort-wear collection in their Winston-Salem boutique.
Resort-wear lines that Nitsa’s will carry include Persifor, Roberta Roller Rabbit, Barbara Gerwit, HIHO, and Dizzy Lizzie.
Persifor offers bright and whimsical prints in casual dresses, tunics, palazzo pants, and accessories like handbags, totes, and hats. Their machine-washable silky custom fabric features vibrant hues of blues, greens, and citrus. Persifor was founded by Alexandra Thompson, a Parsons New School for Design graduate, who has worked in design for such iconic brands as J. Crew and Lilly Pulitzer before launching her own line.
Roberta Roller Rabbit is a travel-inspired lifestyle brand, offering exotic, sophisticated yet affordable leisurewear and accessories by designer Robert Freymann. Roberta Roller Rabbit is an offshoot of Freymann’s namesake label and was inspired by a fable of a magical rabbit that she found on a piece of discarded fabric in India. All of her pieces are hand-block printed, created and produced by Freymann with artisans in India. Popular prints include monkeys, elephants, and fish and complete the signature whimsical spirit that has become synonymous with the brand.
Barbara Gerwit has designed a resort collection that is made up of hand-blocked, hand-beaded embroidered tunics and tops, and other related accessory items. Casual printed knit dresses and tops have now been added to this growing collection. Her light and airy fabrics are made of brightly colored cotton lawn, cotton Swiss voile, and laundered linen that has been constructed for easy care and washability at affordable prices. Prints include bright florals, pineapples, flamingos, and seashells.
HIHO Clothing is inspired by life in the Caribbean with casual clothing including linen shirts and sweaters, beach dresses, printed cover-ups, and soft cotton t-shirts. HIHO clothing is based on a tropical lifestyle and influenced by the pristine environment of the Caribbean and island life. Clothing is soft, designed to be functional, colorful, and comfortable in a chic island way. The casual, cool, and elegant designs and original prints are the hallmark of the HIHO brand.
With timeless, modern patterns and prints, the Dizzy-Lizzie line is a designer collection for the modern day woman. Founded in 2006 by designer Liz Lighton, these timeless dresses, pants, jackets, and “Tizzie” shirts are redefining the way women dress. Lighton’s passion for prints is shown through every detail in her clothes, such as the ribbon trims, stretched fabric, cuffed sleeves, and inner cotton linings. The collection features dresses, tunics, and tops in bold and colorful stripes, prints, and florals that are perfect for a cruise or a stay at an island resort.
Stop in and see all of these beautiful resort-wear collections at Nitsa’s and get ready for your next vacation or bring a little bit of the islands to the Triad!
Spring is almost here, and there’s no better time to update your wardrobe. And with the easy-to-wear and soft-touch pieces from women’s sportswear line Side Stitch, you’ll be ready for the warmer days ahead.
Made in Los Angeles, Side Stitch clothing has a fresh California style with casual easy-to-care-for designs. Their Spring 2016 collection is perfect for the woman looking to update her wardrobe for the office, weekend, or night out. Influences from the effortless Southern California lifestyle are injected into the unique, ultra-comfortable designs that include short sleeve button- down tops, high-low hemmed shirts, and flowy lace-up tunics in a variety of bright colors. Relaxed denim and linen shirtdresses offer functional dressing options that can transition easily from office to a night out. Gingham, plaid, polka dot, and stripes add interest to this collection.
Fabric is a key player in Side Stitch designs. They create fabrics with the softest touch possible, and their core denim pieces use a special eco-friendly fabrication.
Side Stitch was created in 2013 and has been mostly carried by Nordstrom. As they expand into a full lifestyle brand with their Spring 2016 line, they are broadening their product assortment and will be featured in boutiques across the country, including Nitsa’s in Winston-Salem.
The collection’s fabrics and silhouettes are so incredibly versatile that styles easily transition from season to season, and thus fit perfectly in today’s changing retail environment which favors the “buy now, wear now” concept.
Choosing the Perfect Prom Dress
High school prom season is right around the corner, and girls everywhere are starting their search for the perfect prom dress. From long to short, strapless to one-shoulder style, sequins to ruffles, there are lots of different styles of prom dresses to choose from. But how do you find the dress that is right for you?
Pear shapes – If you have narrow shoulders, a small chest and waist but are curvier on the bottom through hips, buttocks, and thighs, then you are pear-shaped. Dresses that look best on this figure type are those that are more fitted on the top and have an A-line or fuller skirt.
Apple shapes – If you are fuller on top and tend to carry weight in your mid-section but have slim hips, legs, and a small behind, then you are what is referred to as apple-shaped. Prom dresses with an empire waist will help draw attention away from your middle. Also, a higher waistline means the prom dress may not be as tight in your problem area. If you have nice toned, athletic legs, show them off by choosing shorter prom dresses.
Slender, straight shape – If you have more of a slender, straight up and down shape, you’ll want a dress that will create the illusion of curves. Choose styles that draw attention to your bustline or a dress that bells out at the bottom. Or you might try a dress that draws attention to your waist such as a wrap dress or one with a belt.
Petite – If you are 5’2” or under, you’ll want a prom dress that will create a long line and make you appear taller, but floor-length ball gowns tend to overwhelm a small frame. Go for a shorter dress or one with an asymmetrical hemline. A longer, fitted solid-color prom dress can add the illusion of height as can long ruffles.
Hourglass shape – If you have an hourglass figure, consider yourself lucky! Since your body is well-proportioned, you don’t need to hide anything, and most styles of prom dresses will flatter your figure. If you have a fuller bust, just be sure to choose a dress that offers good support up top.
Whatever dress you chose for your special night, make sure you are comfortable in it. You don’t want to be tugging at a strapless dress all night if it does not fit you correctly or have to worry about a long train getting caught under your heels. Go for a pretty color with some interesting details in a style to fit your body shape, and you are sure to have a memorable prom night!
What are trunk shows and how can you make the most of them? Read on for answers to all your questions.
What is a bridal trunk show?
Bridal trunk shows are special events when the wedding dress designer (or a representative from the company) visits a bridal boutique to showcase his or her new line of wedding gowns. Brides-to-be schedule appointments to try on dresses and meet with the designer.
Why do boutiques have trunk shows?
Most bridal salons only carry a few dresses from a select group of designers. Trunk shows allow customers the opportunity to see and try on dresses they wouldn’t normally be able to find at that store. If you find your perfect dress during a designer trunk show, you can see if the store carries it, or oftentimes you can place a special order for the dress through the store.
What are the benefits to the brides-to-be?
Brides benefit because they will have the opportunity to talk to the designer to discuss his or her gowns and what styles may work best for their body type. They will also be able to take advantage of show specials which, many times, are a percentage off the dress or an accessory purchase.
What are the benefits to designers?
Bridal designers benefit because they get to see brides try on their dresses and hear their feedback. This is a great opportunity for them to learn directly from the customer what they may be doing right or wrong.
When Are They Held?
Many bridal salons hold trunk shows year-round, but the vast majority of them occur January through April. The shows usually last from one to four days, and appointments book up quickly. Call early or book online!
How Do I Prepare for Trunk Show Day?
First make sure you request your appointment by calling the store or scheduling online. An appointment will ensure that the store knows you are coming, and they can plan to give you the best service possible. Be prepared to buy. Trunk show specials can only be offered while the designer is in the store. Bring only a couple of trusted friends or family members with you. Too many guests will spoil your experience, but not having your trusted friends with you may make you uncomfortable with making this important decision. Bring a shoe with the heel height you plan to wear on your wedding day. Most of all, plan to have a wonderful, fun, and exciting experience!
Plan to attend Nitsa’s next bridal trunk show with designer Marisa Baratelli on Feb. 4-8, 2016, in our Winston-Salem store or Feb. 10-13, in our Charlotte store.
Call 336-725-1999 to make an appointment for our Winston-Salem trunk show, or call 704-940-1999 to schedule an appointment for our Charlotte trunk show.

Say Yes to the Dress
For the perfect party attire, come browse Nitsa’s selection of designer cocktail dresses and eveningwear. Whether you prefer Herve Leger’s bold, body-con style or Chiara Boni’s perfectly proportioned timeless looks, Nitsa’s will always dress you perfectly from head to toe.
From our family to yours, Nitsa’s wishes you a wonderful holiday and the happiest of new years.
Parties, parties, parties! ‘Tis the season for holiday occasions, whether they’re family dinners, black-tie affairs, or office celebrations. But what does the FashioNitsa wear for all these events? Unless it’s an ugly sweater party, she does not pull out the Rudolph-and-Frosty-bedecked knitwear. Read on for our favorite looks this holiday season.
Look #1: Office Holiday Party
Company parties can be very risky, and not just from a fashion perspective. The trick is to be celebratory but still professional, both in terms of behavior and in terms of dress. Since many holiday parties start right after work, you can find a great solution with Nitsa’s specialty day-into-night outfits and dresses. To transition seamlessly from work into the evening event, bring some bling to amp up your work outfit. Shine, which is always popular at the holidays, is especially strong this year. Try shoes, a bag, or a scarf embellished with glitter to keep your look professional but still fun.
Look #2: Festive Casual
Get-togethers with family and friends are rarely formal affairs, but the holidays call for some sense of occasion and fun. Nitsa’s recommendation: start with a pair of our on-trend jeans, and build the rest of your outfit around this casual base. Jewel tones are often flattering around the face and are especially hot this season. Metallics give a real sense of occasion, as do a pair of glam shoes or a jeweled clutch.
Look #3: Formal or Black Tie
Whether it’s a winter wedding or a glittering New Year’s Eve party, a formal party is the time to pull out all the stops. If you’re feeling daring, you can go full-length and unleash your inner diva, or go for slightly less formality with the perfect cocktail dress. This season, icy pastels are dominating the runways, but if that doesn’t suit your skin tone, you can always go deep with beautiful jewel tones. This time of year, emerald and ruby are especially popular, but not together!
Have you ever seen a picture of the first digital watch/calculator combination? It was huge, bulky, and black, and it sat on the wrist like Darth Vader’s favorite ornament. Wearable technology has come a long way since the 1980s—with beautiful jewelry and accessories masking an array of useful tools. During the intervening decades, the miniaturization of computers has enabled a boom in wearable technology; a 2014 Global Web Index report found that fully 71 percent of Millennials (people aged 16 to 24) were interested in wearable technology. From activity trackers to Bluetooth headsets to fully-functioning computers, this trend seems like it’s here to stay.
The ubiquity of smartphones and tablets has driven an increase in attractive accessories for them. It seems that bracelets and earrings may be optional, but smartwatches and earbuds are not. People’s insistence on accessing their technology at all times has naturally led to a desire to look better doing it; Apple’s white earbuds are fine for jogging, for instance, but they don’t exactly make your officewear pop. And who wants a boring phone case when this two-by-four-inch rectangle provides a perfect blank canvas for self-expression?
At Nitsa’s, we proudly offer products from Triple C, a leader in fashionable wearable technology. Triple C was founded in 2005 with a line of stylish accessories, but they saw the growing trend of wearable technology and switched their focus in 2010. Through their own product line and private-label partnerships with such fashion brands as Kate Spade and Coach, Triple C’s tech accessories make a statement. Be a part of the future with Nitsa’s and Triple C!
