The new Knit Wit is deliciously modern

After enjoying a lovely afternoon lunch at The Dandelion - the cheese board is very tasty, btw - your friendly neighborhood fashion writer strolled by the new Knit Wit at 1729 Chestunt Street. Owner Ann Gitter opened the new store on Wednesday.

After enjoying a lovely afternoon lunch at The Dandelion - the cheese board is very tasty, btw -  your friendly neighborhood fashion writer strolled by the new Knit Wit at 1729 Chestunt Street. Owner Ann Gitter opened the new store on Wednesday.

It's sooooo pretty. Gitter has made the space - perfectly located across the street from DiBruno Brothers and next door to South Moon Under - deliciously modern. There are hardwood floors and brick walls and mannequins dressed sheer blouses in vibrant punchy colors. Less is more. Less is fabulous.

On the racks are floral Diane Von Furstenberg tunic dresses - complete with ruffles that work well with wide belts. And there was a black tuxedo style jumpsuit to die for with the back out.  Same store, updated fashion. Marvelous.

Can't wait to see what Ann brings in for fall.

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
