Groove IS in the heart (anything to quote a Deee-Lite track)!  Lovin' this 70s maxi with its rick rack trim.


Studly

04.09.15

Studly, sassy and yet very feminine - such a fantastic combination.  Check out this medley of stud-adorned clothing and accessories currently at Ampersand including Valentino Rockstud pumps, Fendi and Louboutin wonders all atop this truly amazing Isabel Marant jacket.  Promise they won't hurt!


Wedge In

04.06.15
We're not trying to make trouble here, but seriously everyone needs to drive a wedge into their summer ensembles.  We have such cute rompers and jumpsuits in store right now, and to pair them with one of these Christian Louboutin, Marni, Rachel Comey or Kork-Ease wedges is more than just a must.

Molto Bene Marni

04.02.15

What we always love about Marni is Consuelo Castiglioni’s signature quirky Italian decadence, that unique balance of telltale prints, bold shapes and offbeat cuts. That said, what we really love about this new selection of Marni jewelry is the surprise of such unexpectedly sleek materials and streamlined designs, making them wonderfully understated statement pieces.

Wanna Bag, Ladies?

03.19.15

After four years of just about every bag you can imagine, and many beyond imagination, passing through our door, we’ve finally designed one of our own. True to Ampersand form, it’s a little retro, a lot practical, muy whimsical and highly sustainable.  We'll put your lovely purchases in one of these babies when you spend $250 or more worth of goodies at the store or on our website.

Then again, if you'd rather rock the shamrock, look no further than this hot little pot of gold number!  Either way, being green just got a whole lot more fun!


Spring Forward with Demaria Watch Bracelets

03.09.15

Just in time for Daylight Savings, vintage bracelets by 80s jewelry designer Demaria are becoming a bit of a new obsession at Ampersand. They won’t exactly help you keep time (who needs a watch these days that actually keeps time?), but the glittering rhinestone watch faces will add plenty of bling to your wrists.


Bag It!

01.27.15

Cast in deep raspberry and rich chocolate brown, this selection of our newest bags in-store is more like a dessert tray of delectable leathers that are so supple, they’re practically edible. From the buttery Alexander McQueen tote to the bittersweet Louis Vuitton messenger to that delicious Proenza Schouler PS13, this is what we call a feast for the eyes.


Wrist Action

01.24.15
O/O Studio’s Julia Kim is having a ball with minimalism, literally, and we love the punctuation of color, shape and materials she brings to her upbeat and super sleek new jewelry line. Blending a contemporary sensibility with time-honored craftsmanship, every O/O design is decidedly geometric, a tad eccentric and completely unassuming all at the same time.

Sasha Bell

12.23.14

Cast in sterling silver and plated with 18k gold, Sasha Bell’s earrings are distinctly detailed yet versatile enough for almost any occasion. They’re standout and laid-back, modern, urban and tribal all at the same time. Actually, you know when you’re out on a mission, shopping for that perfect gift, find something truly amazing, and then end up debating whether to buy it for yourself or do the right thing and purchase it for your sister/mother/daughter/best friend? We understand. And in this case, we recommend compromising: buy a pair of Sasha Bells for yourself and one for each of t...


Silver (& Gold) Bells

We’re going green this holiday season—in silver and gold. Decorative yet functional, our Ampersand holiday wreath is a dazzling selection of new and vintage chains, chokers and necklaces now in-store. So here’s to multitasking in style!


Haute Pink

12.14.14

If you’re really looking to shine this party season, we suggest giving your LBD a closet vacation in favor of . . . the LPD! The Little Pink Dress, of course. Because, as you can see of these two vintage beauties, nothing says Festivus like fuchsia!


Gemstone Gems

12.12.14

Real or faux, big and bold or tiny and embellished, we are all about gemstones. First in our little cornucopia, there’s Esqivel’s stunning new-boho brass and fluorite cuff. Then, of course, those standout and step back Mary Norton gold leather slingbacks with cabachon gem heels. Followed by a pair of eye-popping Bulgari sunglasses—ciao, bella, is right! And last but certainly not least, an oversized belt buckle all atop a Layla printed dress. What better way to add some dazzle to your fall wardrobe than a new gem-encrusted accessory or two?


Window Dressing

12.08.14

A perfect example of what we try to achieve with all our weekly window displays: a mix of classic pieces and our newest designer items in-store, as well as a variety of colors, patterns, fabrics, shapes and price points. In this case, on the right, there’s a Zara top paired with gray leather pants and a Balmain crossbody. In the middle, a fabulous Kenzo jacket thrown over a T Alexander Wang jumpsuit. And on the left, to complete the picture, a vintage floral dress that is anything but a shrinking violet.


Red Is the New Black

12.03.14

Listen, we live in black boots every day from November through March. Which is exactly why we will be the first to admit that sometimes you gotta shake things up, because change is good and variety is the spice of life, right? So we plan on beating the winter blues with a healthy dose of red, ruby and burgundy suede and leather boots like these beauties from Zara, Bottega Veneta, Balenciaga and Joie.


Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Moe—Mo’ Louis, that is!

11.22.14

LV addicts, you know who you are—come on, everyone knows who you are. And we all know the first step to recovery is admitting you’re powerless—who could blame you with this bevy of French beauties in the offering? So what’s your poison, a punchy color block or classic neutral print? Super weekender or slim wallet? Well, we will be more than happy to show them all off to you, pull them all off the shelves for you to inspect, ogle, model, covet, or, hopefully, even bring a few home with you!


Proenza Schouler on the Racks!

10.23.14

Serious beauties currently with super sale prices.  Mainly petite sizes.  Do come visit!


Chanel Mademoiselle

09.30.14

Come on, even in January, how can you possibly look at our beautiful model without singing, My cherie amour, lovely as a summer day . . .! Seriously, no matter what the temperature, prim and proper never looked so young and fresh as this gorgeous vintage Chanel jacket/dress in peacock-green colored taffeta.
