....chop off your sleeves!!? My name is Hilary Arthur and I am an outerwear addict. I was inspired this season to breath new life into two of my coats (I hadn't worn in years) by removing the sleeves. It was an update that instantly made them more modern and wearable. I'm so taken with this silhouette that it will likely pop up in our Pre-Spring Private Label Collection...
My husband wore a Rocawear Texas Tuxedo on our first date back in 2002. I like to remind him of it as often as possible and by remind I mean tease. But lately it seems that he was (as always / again) ahead of his time. Right now denim on denim on denim just feels right. Denim shirt, J.crew. Denim skirt Basler, available at Arthur & Daughters, Campos Triple Zip clutch available at Arthur & Daughters, Shoes, Christian Louboutin.
Fall is my absolute favorite season. As Style.com's Executive Director, Candy Pratts Price once famously (and hilariously) said, "September is the January of fashion." It's a fresh start. It's a chance to try out a new trend or maybe even experiment with a totally different look. For me there is nothing better than cool sweater weather, a pumpkin spice latte and a 500 page copy of Vogue!
I may not have seen the inside of a classroom for a really really long time BUT that doesn't mean I can't get into the Fall back to school spirit! Backpacks are having a high style moment this fall season. I'm not talking about a nylon Jansport! This bag can be sophisticated when done in a more luxurious material like leather, suede or snakeskin. The leather backpack pictured ($398) is from the CAMPOS handbag line we carry at Arthur & Daughters. These beautiful bags are all made in Brooklyn, NY and are available in a variety of colors!
Happy Summer! We coming to you this week from Downtown York PA's lovely Greyhound Bus Station! What could be a chicer way to travel this summer than with a vintage luxury designer suitcase! All available at Arthur & Daughters (teal $35 each, Gucci cases from $500-$700). I'm wearing a Marni white jacket, Piazza Sempione trousers and a red Dayton K dress ($98 Made in the USA) available at Arthur & Daughters in size 2-14. The bag is Chanel. Sunglasses from Madewell.

March is an exciting month at A&D! Not only is it our one year anniversary but we have beautiful new collections for women arriving each week! This week we will be debuting HEATHER WITT. Heather is a local York, Pa based designer. Like me she got her professional start in NYC and moved to York, PA to be close to family. Heather has designed a beautiful capsule collection of quilted jackets, coats and dresses exclusively for us. They are all made by hand right here in York. I love pairing the ultra feminine calico print of the above Heather Witt jacket with something a bit tougher like riped jeans and pointy Manolos. Stop by Arthur & Daughters #FIRSTFRIDAY March 7th to see the Heather Witt collection as well as new Spring arrivals from Lobo Mau and Meredith Banzhoff (49 North Beaver Street, York PA 17401 646.269.1869).

My name is Hilary Arthur. I’ve worked in fashion and retail for 17 years. I spent 14 of those years in NYC, where I met my wonderful husband Gregory. In 2011, we relocated with our two daughters to my hometown of York, PA to enjoy some “country livin” as Gregory, the native Brooklynite, likes to say. In March 2013, my fashion dreams were realized when we opened Arthur & Daughters (49 North Beaver St York, PA 17401). Arthur & Daughters is York’s premier purveyor of luxury designer consignment and new collections from emerging American designers. THE BLOG champions shopping locally, chronicles my style obsessions and keeps you currant on all goings on at the A&D shop!
