If you have stopped by Kiskadee lately, you probably noticed that we have a lot of new merchandise in for spring and summer.  Each season when Neil and I head to market, we attempt to play fortune teller and predict what the women of Alexandria will want to wear in the coming months.  Little did we know that a brand we have been carrying for some time now, Michael Stars, would be the talk of the store this spring.

Our customers have been swooning over the buttery fabrics and perfectly constructed pieces these past few weeks.  What we use to think of as a comfortable t-shirt brand is now turning our heads and causing us to see it as so much more.  I want to share with you a few of our favorite dresses and tops from the reinvented Michael Stars!


We love the versatility in Michael Stars designs.  From flowy to structured, patterned to solid, the options fit any style preference.

This Tencel tank v-neck dress is a classic piece that it sure to get much wear this spring and summer.

Hello summer!  This cruise stripe scoop neck drawstring dress will be your favorite piece to throw on, whether you are at the beach or strolling around Alexandria!

Linen dresses are perfect for spring and summer but this is unlike any linen dress in your closet.  Michael Stars took a modern spin with this linen utility dress and we are loving every bit of it.


As I sit here writing this story, the weather for this week includes temperatures ranging from the low 50s to the mid-80s. How in the world are we supposed to dress with fluctuation like this?  Answer: Lightweight sweaters!  Choose a lightweight sweater to keep you warm, and a light color perfectly dresses for the season

This baja sweater will be a great piece for sudden change in temperature or to throw on at the beach when those sun chills start to kick in.


Words cannot even describe how gorgeous this fringe sweater is. Hurry in and grab it before someone else does!


Michael Stars started in 1986 as a brand devoted to creating the perfect tee, and they continue this tradition today.  We have many of their shirts in store right now, and these are two of my personal favorites!

Everyone needs a great t-shirt in their closet.  The nubby boucle tank and the split neck tee both take “simple” t-shirt to a new level.  Update your everyday uniform with one of these awesome and practical Michael Stars shirts.

With celebrities like Jessica Alba, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Olivia Wilde sporting Michael Stars, it is no wonder we love this brand!
