"Studs are one of the hottest trends for the fall! They work on almost any accessory but what better way to showcase them then by donning a studded scarf? Cecelia De Bucourt’s studded scarves are a fabulous way to get a little edge. A definite must-have for fall! The scarves come in three different combinations: black with gold studs, gray with silver studs, and gray with silver studs and chain. There is no doubt that these will be your new favorite statement accessory. If you are in the Austin area, stop by Shiki on 2nd Street to get yours before they run out."

January 8, 2009

A panel of Austin experts offer a list of surprising answers that might shape your wardrobe for the new year.

Jane Vanisko McCan, owner of Shiki:

"Shelve your short, boxy dress styles. 2009 is the comeback year for long dresses. Fitted silhouettes in silk, and in jersey, with details such as ruffles and pleats are among my favorites for spring. Twelfth Street, T-Bags and Gypsy have the most versatile selections - perfect for Austin. I love texture and gravitate to the more yummy, luxurious fabrics when I select styles for my store."

“Shiki means four seasons and the boutique certainly offers a fabulous fashion solution for any event or occasion. Since its opening in October 1998, Shiki has distinguished itself as the source for distinctively unique fashion from up and coming designers you won't find in other boutiques. The incredibly hip interior is just like the fashion selections - chic enough to make a statement on their own with minimal assistance from accessories. The selection is truly superior and owner Jane Vanisko McCan works hard to make sure it's equally versatile and reasonably priced. Add in an extensive selection of trendsetting accessories and an incredibly friendly sales staff and you have the recipe for true style success.”

In silk, chiffon, or jersey, they come in billowy midcalf and ankle lengths and a variety of patterns—a much more creative approach to festival garb than the predictable blue jeans and T-shirt.”

“Shiki's hard-to-find upstart labels are the specialty at this minimally-decorated boutique (notably the first store in Austin to carry slim-cut Red Engine jeans). At the moment, gauzy cotton peasant tops by T-Bags and Tylie perforated-suede purses (which can be customized with your name studded on the strap for an additional $10) are customer favorites. But it pays to check out the whole store: Shiki also has exclusives on hippie-ish Kablan chiffon tops.”
