Lovin' the plaid!

Posted by Sanity |

Plaid is back...big time for fall 09 and we are loving it at Sanity!! For women, we just received the new Morphine Generation line and every piece looks great! My absolute favorite (and most versatile) piece from the line is the Morphine Generation Neo Grungre Shirt Dress
Who would have thought that a plaid AND flannel dress could be cute? If anyone could do it, it would be Morphine Generation. This dress is fitted with a front button closure and a cinching waist tie. It's going to look great alone with a pair of fringe boots. Another way to wear this dress would be with a pair of skinny jeans....the possibilities are endless!
Check the dress out below:

The best part about this dress is it's only $89! For this season, Morphine Generation has dropped their price point and there are so many great pieces from this line that I know all of our Sanity and Sanitystyle customers are going to LOVE!


New William Rast for Men & Women!

Posted by Sanity |

The new William Rast Fall Collection is finally here!
We have 3 new washes for men and 2 new washes for women and they look sooooo good!
Just a little preview for our followers of the new washes are below. The first picture is the men's Billy (Bootcut) in Beale Street. This wash was used on a woman's jean for spring and was a hit! William Rast introduced Beale Street for Men because both men and women loved this wash so much!
Right below the Billy is the Ben (straight leg) in Colt, a dark grey wash that is great for dressing up or down. A nice slim leg gives you that polished look you guys going for.

We have 2 new washes for women, pictured below is the Belle with the Flap on the Back Pocket in Vintage, an awesome "dirty" wash for fall.
Stop in at Sanity and check them out for yourself because the pictures, as always do the jeans no justice!

From now through Sept 10, take advantage of 20% OFF all regular priced merchandise at Sanity in Chagrin Falls!


The Rich & Skinny SLIMMING Legging Jean

Posted by Sanity |

Yes, you read that right... the new Rich & Skinny Jay Legging Jean has just hit the floor at Sanity and is really a slimming jean.
Made of 40% stretch, the Jay legging will make you butt look smaller because of the "curve" appeal in the jean. A higher front and back rise will flow with your curves and cinch in on the waist to give you that perfect curvy girl fit without the gap! AND the best part about these is you get the legging look with support without sacrificing comfort.
Our fave celebs like Eva and Kim (with tushes) have been spotted wearing jeans like this for a while now.
Check out the great press below that the Rich & Skinny Jay Legging received in Life & Style Mag.
Stop in at Sanity to try on a pair for yourself!
If you're not in Cleveland, no worries, the Rich & Skinny Jay Legging will be online first thing next week!


Cheap Monday-New Arrivals are here!!

Posted by Sanity |


Fall is undoubtedly my favorite season. Sweaters, jeans, boots, cashmere dresses and leg wear. Those are just a few of my favorite items of clothing that I look forward to wearing in the fall.
This past week we have received so many new arrivals at Sanity and and even though I feel like we haven't had much of a summer, I'm getting so excited for fall!
Our newest arrival is Cheap Monday
, a Swedish clothing label for men and women. It was founded in 2000 by Örjan Andersson, originally as a second-hand clothing store, in a suburb of Stockholm. The name of the brand originates from the fact that the original store was only open on Sunday. The brand is known for their idiosyncratic designs, and has expanded from their original focus on jeans to include sneakers, flannel, and shirts and fashion forward pieces.

L.A.M.B. New Arrivals at Sanity!!!

Posted by Sanity |

Leave it to Gwen Stefani with her amazing voice, amazing abs and her harajuku cool sense of style to design such a great line of clothing, shoes and bags like L.A.M.B. The first of the fall 2009 collection just arrived and is just perfect for early fall. With reds and mauves being the IT colors for this fall 2009, L.A.M.B has mixed reds into the collection beautifully. I personally have a few favorites from the line, which includes the "Mazed Asymmetric" dress. With a charcoal background, the color red is woven through the dress hence the name "mazed". Asymmetric ruffles on the front and faux pockets add just the right amount of flair to this dress and the flutter cap sleeves add a hint of femininity. Just perfect!
I can just see this dress with a pair of black suede boots and a great fall bag.
My other favorite piece in the first part of the collection is the "Two for Tee" top. It looks like a double layered top, but is actually a single layer. A plaid shirt featuring a banded 3/4 length sleeve is on the bottom and an ivory v-neck on top. Very Cool!
Check out both of these styles below and at


The 3/50 Project

Posted by Sanity |

I recently learned about the 3/50 Project, an idea that started after a blog post. The 3/50 Project is about supporting your local merchants. This cause became very important to Kevin and I after we opened Sanity. As a local merchant of Chagrin Falls, we know that every little bit of support for local merchants helps. It not only helps in a business sense but in a community sense. If there were no merchants in Chagrin Falls because every one chose to shop at big name chains like Nordstrom, Dillards and especially the discount stores like TJ Maxx, Nordstrom Rack and other comparable stores, Chagrin Falls would have nothing left to draw people to the area (except for the Popcorn Shop of coarse....joking, joking).
The idea of all the merchants closing because people do not support small merchants as much as they should really saddens me. The true draw of a town like Chagrin Falls has always been the "cute shops". There are thousands of town like Chagrin Falls that people look forward going to because they know they'll find something unique and interesting to bring home with them.
The idea of supporting local merchants is not a difficult one and is very do-able. The 3/50 Project says that if half the employed people in America spent $50 a month in locally owned independant businesses, it would generate more than $42.6 billion in revenue. Not to mention that for every $100 dollars spent at a locally owned store, $68 returns directly to your community through taxes, payroll and other expendtures.
I understand how easy it is to go online and click a button and get what you want in a few days, but if you shop online, it does absolutely nothing to help your community.
All that i'm asking you, as an owner of a locally owned business is to please consider stopping at the boutiques first before you rush off to Nordstrom to buy your jeans or fall waredrobe.
Plus, shopping at boutiques makes your clothing more unique and I promise, you won't see 20 different people wearing the exact same shirt that you just bought from Express, only in 5 different colors :)
Shop Locally....Shop Sanity
