Goodbye for Now

Goodbye for Now

As many of you know, Willow + Isolde has been a dream of mine that I was lucky enough to make a reality. In the two years of running Willow + Isolde, I have experienced some of life's biggest highs and lows. One of those lows, an emergency surgery, forced me to temporarily close the store. It was a difficult decision to make but one that I knew was the right for me and for my family.  Yet again I find myself in a position where I must make a difficult decision. I have decided to take a step back...

New State, Same Store

It's official! We are in Georgia! I cannot believe that it's finally here but don't worry. We may be based in a new state, but we are the same Willow + Isolde and always will be! You can continue to count on us for adorable style at an afforable price.  If you're a fellow Texan, you know how much pride we have in our great state. If you're not a fellow Texan, you're also probably aware of our pride because we tend to be pretty loud and in your face about it. When I first thought of leaving Texas and...

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

As I'm sure you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. National Breast Cancer Awareness Month was founded in 1985 and has been going strong ever since. During the month of October you will see the color pink, the offical color of the cause, everywhere from sporting events to shopping malls to buildings lit up in the night. The goal of BCAM is to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and hopefully, someday, a cure.  This year Willow + Isolde is taking part in Breast Cancer Awareness Month. When...


THE BACKLESS TOP CONUNDRUM?!?

THE BACKLESS TOP CONUNDRUM?!?

So you love the look of a good backless top or dress, but you just can't figure out what to wear underneath them? Well, I'm here to help you out with this little conundrum! I'll admit it. The backless look can be a tricky one to wear. Some styles look great with a simple bralette, like our Fiona Bralette, but others not so much. If a bralette doesn't work, then what? I guess there's always the option of going braless, but most of us probably don't feel comfortable doing that. So what is a girl to do?  I'm here to...


SHOP FOR A CAUSE

SHOP FOR A CAUSE

When I opened Willow + Isolde, I knew that I wanted to do something more than sell clothes. I wanted to use the platform that the store has to do a little bit of good in the world. I brainstormed a few different ideas, and I finally settled on what I now refer to as Shop for a Cause with Willow + Isolde.  A few times a year Willow + Isolde will release a special merchandise item, and the profits from the sales of that item will be donated to a charity. Each item will benefit a different cause and...
