Style For Miles


I truly can’t go more than a week or two without zeroing in on another awesome business for yet another Retailer Spotlight. Today’s showcase is for Chloe In Style, a store I have had on my radar for over six months, and am finally able to share with you! Bridget Jewell started the shop back in 2006 and has (obviously) seen quite a bit of success since then. Her collection is incredibly diverse – from pretty paper products and baby booties to gorgeous kimono robes and quirky cufflinks – and pretty much made for gift-giving. The shop has also had the privilege of being featured in some pretty high profile media, included InStyle, GOOP, and the Ellen Degeneres Show to name but a few. Without further ado, below are my top five picks for the season – but I strongly an encourage a visit for yourself!

Greeting Cards – $3.25 (individual) – $7 (box of 10)
Chloe In Style has a *ton* of pretty individual and boxed cards, but I narrowed it down to these three thematically appropriate choices. It seems you can’t go more than a month without a pregnancy or birth announcement, so if you’re busy planning a baby shower, consider these super cute invites that include a tearaway section to slip some advice to the new mama-to-be. Ditto on the equally precious grad cards, so you can invite extended friends & family to watch your little one cross the stage and turn a corner, with some grown-up advice to help them in the adult world. If you’re simply shopping for Father’s Day, the individually packaged cards present many sweet options, including this sweet illustrated one that shows the softer side of dad.


Baby Booties – $41 – $44 each
If you’re on the receiving end of a baby shower invite this summer, and looking for a fab baby gift, look no further – this store is built for moms & tots and special items to service them both, including the wide selection of melt-your-heart baby booties. Available in everything from cowboy & Ugg-inspired styles to high top sneakers and sparkly ruby slippers, these super soft and cosy shoes will not only keep baby’s tootsies toasty in the cooler months, they’re the type of thing mom will hold onto for well after, as a simple reminder that they really were that small once.

Medals – $176 – $386
Dad’s your hero, right? Then show him with one of these Canadian-made medals, designed to evoke classic military adornments and packaged in keepsake boxes with a certificate that explains each award. Whether you’re thanking him for being faithful, honest, courageous, or honourable, don’t be surprised to see dad get a bit weepy-eyed when he opens your gorgeous gift. He can be bold and display it to the world on his tie or lapel, or clip it to the inside  of his coat with a constant reminder that home is where the heart is.

Kimonos – $95 each
I almost hesitated at including these robes, but they’re so pretty, and so versatile for gift-giving I simply couldn’t. Available in a half-dozen exotic prints and hand sewn in cosy cotton, these beautiful cover-ups can work overtime – don one at the beach or poolside, wrap it around you when curled up in bed or having a post-bar sleepover with your girlfriends, or hide a plain ol’ hospital gown when taking the first photos of a new mom & baby. Because the kimono robes are so multi-talented, they’re also suitable for a ton of gift-giving occasions – graduations, baby showers, bridesmaids or bridal gifts, or even just birthdays.

Cufflinks – $37+
This is actually the original reason I’d flagged Chloe In Style, which is funny because the store is as girly as can be. Perhaps it’s because cufflinks are one of the few accessories a guy can really have fun with, which would appeal to my feminine gift-giving side. The range of options at Chloe In Style certainly does not disappoint either. Superhero fan? You’ll find most of the classic Marvel & DC heroes represented, including several from the red-hot Avengers film including Thor and Iron Man. Obsessed with video games? He’ll get a kick out of the retro Tetris or Gameboy styles. Sporty all-star? Football is well represented with several top UK teams and cheeky yellow card / red card styles, or go for the 3D tennis ball canisters pictured above. It’s a cute way to represent his personal taste and still get away with a relatively standard, practical Father’s Day gift idea.

Now that you know and love Chloe In Style like I do, I’ve got good news. I’m giving away one pair of cufflinks of the lucky winner’s choice. Interested? Here’s how to enter:

  37. Sherry F (one proud momma) says:

    I would love to give the Courageous Teal Heart Medal to my youngest son who just graduated from university after 5 years of study. He was not happy that it took him 5 years to get his B of Sc but considering he had a cardiac arrest in his first year due to an undetected heart arrhythmia I think it is amazing. It slowed him down but he didn’t quit on his first year even though his memory and concentration wasn’t 100% for about a year after the cardiac arrest. He loves armour and swords and I just think this heart medal would be a great way to recognize his accomplishment.

    • Robin says:

      Hi Sherry,

      I think it’s just the cufflinks they are giving away, but you might want to try contacting the designer directly. http://www.lovemedals.com

      I know she has a blog where she features special stories like yours and maybe you can work something out with her?

      Good luck and congratulations to you and your son!
