Do you Coobie?? What? You're thinking - well now she's completely flipped her lid...while that may be true, trust me on this one - Coobie Seamless bras are amazing! If you haven't tried one yet, I've not been slacking on my salesperson job.
Since the day we opened our doors (6 years ago, BTW...!!), we've been carrying at least three different styles of Coobie bras. The most popular is the scoopneck style:
One size fits most - really! The bras are super soft and stretchy - Coobie says they comfortably fit sizes 32A - 36D. There is also a fuller size that is more comfortable for sizes 38A - 42D. As the most popular colors are the neutrals, we stock black, white, nude, and ivory in both the "one-size" and the fuller size.
There are no hooks or clasps to mess with - pull it over your head or up over your hips if your shoulders aren't quite right. One the one-size the straps are both adjustable and removable (just adjustable on the fuller size), so you can cross the straps in the back or wear just one strap if your new top requires that. There are also pads in each that are removable - they stay in place with a little pocket that can also be used to hold prosthetics if that's your need.
Then there is the Coobie Seamless V-neck bra with lace trim. All of the same great features as the Scoop neck, this has an extra touch of femininity. It's great for wearing under dresses, low cut sweaters, hoodies, coats and more. This one is also available in a fuller size.
Have you had reconstruction or are you nursing? Coobie customers who have or are swear by these!
So many shoes, but just 4 styles!! Who knew?? I saw these on a model at market last month and they were super cute. Stopped her to ask the brand and if they were comfortable. She told me "Modzori" and "yes! I wear them all the time!" Of course I then had to tell her I noticed she came out with a different pair that looked similar, but they were a completely different color. That's when she stepped out of her shoe to show me how it reversed. I was completely sold...even though I wasn't sure how to spell Modzori... Not 10 minutes later, I walked by the guy's booth - couldn't believe it - it was a sign for sure that Modzori needed to be in Dot & Minnie's.
Mary and I tried them on today and not only are they cute, but they're comfortable. A mid-height wedge out of cork. Pretty sure I could wear them all day without an issue. But I guess we'll have to wait until the snow is gone and I have a pedicure before that test happens! Who wouldn't want to pack one pair of shoes, but really have a second one snuck in the suitcase :)
These are all on-line and in the store right now. Each picture should have a link to it's details on our site. If you have questions - ask, as always! We're here to help.
Ever wonder what those little symbols mean on the care tag of your favorite sweater??? Well I did too, so I went to the internet in search of help. There are a lot of guides out there, but it seems the basic symbols are really all the same, so I chose this one (courtesy of American Cleaning Institute). It lists the basic symbols and then gets into the nitty-gritty. I almost wonder it if would be fun to have a laminated one in my laundry room..., but then why would I need my smart phone?!?
And as we all know..., Hand Wash simply means, Gentle Cycle. I can't imagine going back to the days of actually washing things in my sink. Pretty sure I'd head to the dry cleaners before I did that! Maybe the laminated copy idea really is overkill!
We've received many pieces of pre-loved Sympli from fellow Sympli lovers. They are all marked and on our store floor right now and will be through Saturday. If you've always wanted to try it, but were scared to make the investment, this is a great time to grab a piece or two at unbelievable prices! Or - there might be a style or color you always wanted, but couldn't find...stop by and check them out!
We all seem to have pieces of Sympli that either no longer fit or that we no longer want....but someone else may love to have them! Since Sympli-lovers gather during trunk shows, let's try something new this time.

Get your Christmas shopping done in Perham this year! So many stores to visit...what a fun place to live (or visit)! Both Dot & Minnie's and Level iii will be open pre-Christmas Thursday evenings until 7 PM.
Spring 2017 brings Coolibar to Dot & Minnie's! So, whether you want to avoid skin cancer or premature aging, are allergic to the sun, or simply adore Coolibar's cute styles(!), this could be the clothing line for you this season.
Coolibar has been designing sun protective fabrics for 14 years. The fabrics are tested, re-tested, and then tested again! Their sun protective fabrics block 98% of UVA and UVB rays and are rated UPF50+ (which, by the way, is the highest possible rating!). Since a regular t-shirt blocks fewer than 10% of the same rays, Coolibar has done their homework. AND, their company is headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota, so they are close to home.
These are some of the fun styles we have in the store (both brick & mortar and on-line) right now:
