On the Village Green! 62 gift guide ChronograM 11/10

I really count on my clothing to express a sense of style. I’m so relieved and grateful to have found Sorella in Woodstock, which has become my one stop shopping store for clothing (from everyday casual or “dress up” and everything in between), shoes, bags, and scarves. Thank you, thank you. Each day I will look at what I am wearing, and almost every piece is from Sorella — whether it’s a simple black top, with just the right and interesting cut, or my beloved jeans (I’ve gone a little nutty with jeans, as the options are abundant there) to my new layering pieces — a style I have learned from looking at the Sorella sisters, and how they are wearing it (those girls have a natural sense of style & flair with just the right amount of edge, and it’s reflected in the clothing they choose for their store). I HIGHLY recommend a visit in any season. — Susanna

“I now remark to myself, almost daily, ‘it’s a Sorella kind of day’”
