Nothing is more beautiful than mama love. Dedicated to the inspiring mamas that we get to meet in the shop each day; you ladies definitely have style to spare. Have a magical weekend!

What's filling our wardrobe and the shop on this weeks end? Gorgeous new printed dresses by Odylyne, sexy maxi dresses by Rory Beca, and a treasure trove of summer jewelry & accessories. Flowers blooming, kiddies running around, and an epic DENIM SALE continues. That's how we roll into the weekend ...
It was a cold, blustery day (as in, about 6 days ago) when we pulled together our dream head-to-toe outfits from the shop for the Spring '13 Lookbook. We had sunshine on our minds but nary a blooming flower in sight, so we took over the center city home of totally fab friend and WILLED Spring to get here already. Apparently it worked - yeah '75-degrees-and-sunny-all-week' we're looking at you!

Samantha Wills Spring collection, Hunter+Gatherer, is in house! Love that Cameo Lover Necklace with antiqued polishing and a stand out turquoise stone. The Desert Serenade Bracelet Set (below) is packed with pretty pops of pink while the dalmatian stone compliments the Aalliyah Earrings for a bold elegance that flows through the entire collection...
Our first caspsule selection from Maison Scotch's spring collection arrived yesterday. Several fun & cheery print blouses, a few easy to wear dresses and an A-May-Zing twill jacket gave us the feeling of seeing spring flowers pop out of the ground for the first time. Warmer days ahead ladies! Until then, this looks fierce under the fleece.

Ever notice the dreamlike polaroid printsthat adorn the walls at Third Street Habit?
They all stem from the travels and obsessions of Brooklyn-based photographer Matt Schwartz. His gorgeous images travel under the aptly named She Hit Pause Studios - and for the month of May his entire collection of prints will be on display (and available for purchase!)in shop.
First Friday May 4th
5pm - 9pm
This week we loved colorful, well-tailored pieces paired with vibrant accessories. Purple twill skinny jeans by J Brand!? Flattering, cute and shockingly easy to pull off. A denim dress with nipped in waist by Isabel Marant will be forever chic and smoky leather twin pack bag by Jas M.B. is a classic, seasonless piece.
Studded canvas bag by Leigh & Luca, paired with a Splendid henley and sateen cargos by J Brand.
Cashmere scarves by Me & Kashmiere, (fantasticly over-the-top) rings by LowLuv, knitwear by Line & printed camisole by Patterson Kincaid. Long, sinewy skirt by Maggie Ward, and suede cuff lifted from Antik Batik booties.
Featured Above: Necklaces & wraps by Chan Luu, knitwear by Line, trapper hat by FreePeople. Denim by Genetic, Boots by Antik Batik.
All styles, in house now.
So many great shipments arrived this week, including new styles from Isabel Marant's Etoile line, and our British love, Jas M.B. The crackled leather messenger that he sent across the pond is such a great size - not too big or small, super light-weight, and the texture is great for any outfit. New Etoile pieces include the gorgeous printed dress and this soft denim jumper - which happens to be quite sexy in a utilitarian sort of way. It's easy to wear, flattering and quite versatile.
In a desperate attempt to ignore the 97 degree heat today, we cobbled together our September mood board. Two strong statements emerged - one depicting a colorful, textured bohémienne, the other a bit of a rocker, all tousled hair and nostalgia. We love both looks and the mood board has us swooning over the current Habit inventory all over again. Mood board and a few current rails of styles shown above and below.
Of course, this season, both of these ladies rock the military trend!
That's right, we're having a party! Buttercream will be parked at our doorstep, we have awesome goodie bags courtesy of AG Denim, and there will be great deals on *Sale* merchandise. See you Friday!!!

Old City, Philadelphia is chock full of history & innovation, art & commerce, grit & charm. Best of all, it's a great district to shop - especially this time of year.
