Roaming and eating our way through Columbus and beyond.

Shopping at Kit and Ace

{by alexis} Guys, I’m a shopper. I’ve spent many a happy hour with a cup of coffee and seventy-five tabs open combing through the details of twelve white t-shirts. Naturally, when Kit and Ace asked us to pop into their Short North location and check out their store, I was practically out the door. Earlier this week, Alicia and I took advantage of the weather and went downtown to meet our new favorite fabric in a bright, chic space down Brickel alley.

It’s like a breath of fresh air! The star here at Kit and Ace is their revolutionary fabric: technical cashmere. This stuff is just as soft as traditional cashmere, but resists pilling and — wait for it — is machine washable! This is my favorite thing ever. I can’t tell you how many gorgeous sweaters and frocks I’ve passed on due to the high maintenance care requirements. But the technical cashmere that Kit and Ace has magicked up is just as soft as the original, and more forgiving to lazy launderers like myself. I was beyond psyched to give it a try, but first Alicia and I got to spend some time going through the racks and enjoying the space.

Alicia even got to say hi to her boyfriend!

We were not disappointed with the texture of the technical cashmere: it was gloriously soft and comforting on the skin. These pieces are wardrobe basics with a modern cut to make you feel polished and cozy from sunup till sundown — or sunrise, if that’s your thing! And if you travel a lot, like we try to, these pieces are perfect for your carry-on: their laidback care makes them ideal for pulling out of a suitcase, and their simplicity makes them easy to wear a thousand different ways. Here are a few of our favorites.

Can we discuss that pant for a second? Their ponte is soft and curve-hugging and, of course, it’s washable! I found these pants to be as flattering as they were comfortable! Each piece was better than the last; Alicia practically had to drag me out of the dressing room.

A lovely afternoon in the Short North! Thanks to Kit and Ace for inviting us in: it was very truly our pleasure!
