Presenting FLAX!

Lovely, Luscious Ladies' Apparel at The Silver Needle!
Machine Washable Linens to Love

We love our FLAX clothes... and carry their current lines. Loose, soft, relaxing, classy, elegant and just plain FUN to wear... these clothes look good on everybody who tries them on!

  • The cuts are designed to flatter and feature the best parts of you... and 'disguise' anything else!

  • Most is 100% linen, with the exception of some of the gauze-weight pieces which have 52% linen and 48% cotton content.

  • Some the jackets and tanks are constructed on the bias, so they drape smoothly and slenderize. Lots of sleeve options for rolling! Lots of length options, too.

  • Most of the skirt and pant waistbands are softly elastic banded... The Flood Pants have been FLAX's top selling piece every year for 20 years!

  • Nothing requires an iron -- there are NO OFFICIAL FLAX RULES regarding irons -- you can dry clean and professionally press all of this if you want -- or you can toss it in your washing machine and then just hang it to dry. A neat travel trick -- hang your FLAX in the bathroom with you while you take your morning shower -- the steam works wonders -- and you haven't done a thing!

  • Everything is designed to be layered or mix-and-matched. You can do a million different outfit combinations -- especially with the neutral tanks, jackets and Floods. Trying all of this on is really fun -- You just never know what you'll fall in love with.

  • If you are familiar with FLAX, you'll know which pieces, sizes and styles work for you. If you are just getting your first pieces (trust me, you'll fall in love with all of this!), know that all is a relaxed, fun, easy feel and look.

    All of the collections are offered for a short few months, so as FLAX sells out of them, we are usually unable to order more. Call for size and color options -- because our selection is constantly changing!

    The Sunshine 2018 Collection

    Sunshine 2018 - click for a larger view

    Sunshine is a nice summery line... it features a WAVE and RIBBON fabrication... it 'breaks up' the solids you can wear with them a little. We chose a few tops and dresses in this -- just a few things that are quick to grab and wear... and comfortable!

    Our favorite pieces:

    Sunny Tank
    The normal, regular tank... we needed these in Lily (the white) so I ordered those and the Aqua in a solid linen. They go underneath every piece we have! S, M and L $61.00

    Side Pocket Tunic underneath the X-Specially Nice cover Side Pocket Tunic
    This is nice and long! It has slightly tapered side pleat detailing and POCKETS! Nice high neckline so you can bend over safely! The arm holes are not too loose and low either. Wear this under the Artful Blouse or the X-Specially Nice or alone! We ordered it in Aqua and Sand Wave fabrications -- it is not see through. S, M, L $85.00.

    X-Specially Nice
    I am wearing this in the pic over the Side Pocket Tunic. Everyone always likes this classic FLAX look -- the longer tanks and longer jacket. This is here in the Ribbon fabrications -- the partial gauze -- in Sand and Aqua. Drapes well, roll the sleeves. S, M, L $119.

    Artful Blouse
    Everyone likes this because it has sleeves and a collar. It hits at a good length, and is cute over the Tank or the dresses. Side slits give it a little extra movement -- not such a tight-fitted jacket. We ordered Aqua and Sand Wave -- the heavier linen option, so it would be a different cover-up fabrication than the X-Specially Nice. $100.

    Cropped Cargo Pants
    We've had these before -- cute! A shorter pant, exterior pockets, elastic waist, some have removed the strings from the bottom, but you are meant to tie those a little to cinch in the legs a bit. Hits your leg where-ever, there is no correct length for these -- just shorter than long pants. We ordered Ebony -- S, M, L $90.

    Pocketed Ankle Pant
    FLAX is now offering their popular Ankle Pants more with pockets than without. Same narrow leg width, and same small slit at the ankle, again -- no specific length these are 'supposed to be' - just something comfortable for you. Ebony color again -- S, M, L $70.
    Side Pocket Tunic underneath the X-Specially Nice cover
    Square Neck Dress
    This is a very pretty dress with that awesome square neckline! Actually very elegant, there is a little stitch detail across the front, total bra strap coverage because of the top bands, and pockets!!! This is cute underneath the Artful Blouse. You can put it under the X-Specially Nice -- but that's a long/long look and the Artful Blouse shortens it up quite a bit. I chose the solid Aqua for this in S, M and L $91.

    Tuck Back Dress
    The other cute dress in this grouping, we ordered this one in the Wave Fabrication. Regular weight linen, it features cap sleeves and that cute pleat back detail. You look good coming AND going! We ordered this in Aqua again... S, M, and L $110.00.

    The Urban 2018 Collection

    Urban 2018 - click for a larger view

    Urban... WOW... I didn't think I was going to like this year's line, until we saw it at market and I tried it on!!! SUPER FUN, soft and comfy to wear! It is 100% linen with an 8% touch of Spandex and cotton woven trim. Remember those broomstick skirts that we used to twist to keep wrinkled? They are doing that with these pieces -- so needless to say -- they are great to pack in a suitcase to travel anywhere!!!!! We chose the soft Blush Pink and the Java Brown, which is a soft cocoa color NO YELLOW undertones in it. I get compliments on the color every time I wear it!

    Our favorite pieces:

    Roadie Tunic - A cute tunic... I have to wear leggings under it... Mona wears it as a dress. Linen upper, with that band at the bottom which is the cotton/spandex accent. Nice high arm holes -- no extra skin hanging out!
    S, M, L and XL $85

    Grassroots Cardigan - We are wearing this over the Roadie Tunic. They layer so beautifully... the Roadie is a bit longer so you see that bottom trim on here. We like this combination A LOT!
    S, M, L and XL $93

    Wanderlust Jacket - This is THE BEST! I couldn't believe how cute it is on... it's got basically a double front that you could close... but it looks much more relaxed when open. You have ATTITUDE! It has an off-set zipper, and then more zipper accents on the sleeves. You're not supposed to ROLL the sleeves, you are supposed to MOOSH them up. Very funky and fun.
    S, M, L and XL $105

    Edgy Dress - I LOVE THIS TOO... and i wear it underneath that Wanderlust Jacket. It has a jagged hemline that is shorter right at the front, so it looks really good, and doesn't look like you're wearing a too-long-dress. Great, high armholes, not too deep a neckline, It is really different and very cute! I can't believe i can tell you that, because from the original pics, I was going to pass by this collection. Now, it's some of my fav stuff!!! I wear the pink under the pink, brown under the brown... but these pics are missing the colors.
    S, M, L and XL $104

    Cut Above Pants - That soft cotton waistband with a tie, these feature a bit of a cotton band up the sides, so even though they are linen pants, you can roll them and they will stay! NOT WIDE, these are tapered, so they are not too baggy. We ordered them in the Java only.
    S, M, L and XL $80

    Base Pants - These are gathered at the ankles, same soft cotton waistband... they look better on someone taller rather than shorter. WE ordered these in the Java... S, M and L. $86.00

    The 2018 Neutrals Collection

    2018 Neutrals - click for a larger view

    An elegant collection this year! This is such a light, pretty collection of colors and pieces! I've worn several things ALOT already... and I love them!

    2018 Neutrals lineart - click for a larger view

    Our favorite pieces:

    Select Tank - Just a basic little piece... we focused on Melon and Sea Glass Dot -- a double-faced gauze fabrication. You can't see through it. I chose these just to go under a denim jacket or something. Cute with a skirt underneath the Daily Duster.
    S, M and L $67.00

    Social Tunic - I LOVE THIS -- WE ORDERED ALL THE COLORS! A two-toned double woven gauze fabrication, these are ALL lovely! Long sleeves -- they are generous in width and roll easily; I wear this as a dress all by itself. Remember the brown and black polka dot tunics from a couple of years ago -- this is like those. Good with leggings too. It is not too low.
    S, M and L... All the Dots -- Melon, Sea Glass, Bamboo, Natural and Coal. Very pretty! $103.00
    G-1 in Coal Dot, Natural Dot and Sea Glass Dot are $108.

    Daily Duster - ANOTHER *I LOVE THIS ONE* PIECE! I wear this one by itself -- closed -- as a dress with white leggings underneath. It has those curvy sides, so you might want the leggings to make sure nothing peeks out that you don't want to. This has a slight flair to it, so it's really flowy and cute. I also wear this OVER the Tunic! I roll both sleeves up together, so the polka dot gauze shows off on the cuffs. They made these sleeves nice and generous, so I don't have 'arm claustrophbia'! You CAN wear two sets of long sleeves here! Both fabrics are light enough to do that. Just a gorgeous piece with lots of possibilities!
    S, M and L in the solids of Sea Glass, Melon, Coal and Bamboo.
    S, M and L $124.00

    Simplest Tee - A cute top in the solids, wear it with the Pocketed Ankle Pants or a skirt. We ordered the solids in Bamboo, Sea Glass and Melon... the 3/4 sleeves are nice for summer air-conditioning inside.
    S, M and L $78.00.
    G-1 in Sea Glass $84.

    Pocketed Ankle Pants - FLAX's most popular pant style now -- Floods used to be, now these are. Cute tapered legs, pockets, a few gathers near the sides but a flat front, they have a tiny slit near the bottom to help fit any leg. We ordered these in the basics of black, white and natural, and then splurged and chose the gorgeous Sea Glass too!!!S, M and L $70, but $88 for the Sea Glass!

    Our favorite pieces:

    Strappy Cami - A cute little tank -- perfect to layer underneath other things. Adjustable spaghetti straps, it is cut on the bias. You can wear it underneath the other striped things, or solids. We ordered these in Natural, Black and Rouge
    S, M and L $79.00

    Playful Top - This is a fun little top -- it has a decently high neckline, short sleeves, gathering detail on the back, and a slightly longer length in the back. You can see how they seamed it in the back for a little more design detail. Real cute... not too long, just a super easy top. We ordered this in black and rouge stripe.
    S, M and L $82.00

    Bias Back Shirt - THIS IS A SILVER NEEDLE FAVORITE PIECE! OVER AND OVER AGAIN! This is a shirt that features the back with a slightly gathered bias back cut. It has good length, it drapes really well, it looks good closed, or open over tanks and dresses. We have had this piece in several different collections and several different fabric weights... it ALWAYS is just the best! We ordered Black, black stripe, natural, natural stripe, white, rouge and rouge stripe. Pair it with the Strappy Cami or the Pleated Dress. If you don't get anything else -- at least get one of these!!!!!
    S, M, and L $98 for the solids, $114 for the stripes.

    Pleated Dress - Oh this is cute! It's a spaghetti-strapped little dress -- neck is not low! It is super-nice under that bias back shirt! It has a slight little pleat detail in the front, and pockets!!! We ordered this in solid Black, Rouge, striped black and striped rouge. This was a problem for me... stripe dress, solid shirt? Striped shirt, solid dress???
    S, M and L -- $92 for the solid, $108 for the striped. DARLING!

    Nightshirt - I LOVE THIS PIECE! I wear it with leggings to work; it's a little above my knees and super fun! Roll your sleeves, cute with jeans, the sides really curve up, so it has a really nice drape to it! We have rouge and black stripe -- cute, cute, cute!
    $110.00 S, M and L.

    The Travelers 2017 Collection

    NOW 50% OFF

    Travelers 2017 - click for a larger view

    We LOVE the deep olive green of the new Rainforest colorway, and the teal in the Ocean colorway. There are three different fabrications this time around... each color is woven with a bits of black so they look rich and soft. Not everything is available in every fabric -- a little mixing and matching this time around... I'll try to describe!

    Travelers 2017 lineart - click for a larger view
    Our favorite pieces:

    Captivating Tank -- Nice length. They have made everything in this collection slightly more flared at the hemlines to flatter more, and necklines are a little higher. You're safe to bend over from BOTH ends!!! Cute slit in front neckline -- you can turn back the flaps a little to show off jewelry. Arm holes are not loose and gaping. This comes in the solid Ocean and Rainforest linens -- S, M and L. $73.00

    Stated Tunic -- VERY NICE! Cute sewn detail at high neckline and deep hem at bottom, so it lays beautifully. I love this top -- and it looks like this on ME! (and I'm not a skinny 6-ft model!) It looks cute with the Ankle Pants like in the pic, or underneath the Duster (which is too long for my 5'3" body). We have this in the same green and ocean solid linens as the tanks. S, M and L -- $85.00

    Canopy Top -- A shorter top style, just medium length... just simple and cute. I opted for Rainforest in this one -- S, M and L. (Couldn't have it all!) $82.00

    Bloom Tunic -- The longer version of a plain tunic. We ordered this one in the Ocean. Nice 3/4 sleeves, good flair at bottom... again, I just couldn't get them all!!! S, M L $91.00

    Observation Blouse -- This came in only the White Chain Stitch fabrication -- and I ordered it! Pretty fabric, kind of a fun neck detail -- the sleeves in the picture need to be rolled up, I think! S, M and L... nice piece! $100.00

    Discover Blouse -- WOW! THIS IS A FAVORITE! I ordered this in all four colors -- the red, grey, green and ocean. It is a lightweight gauzy/checkerboarded weave, that features a bias cut back. It drapes really well, and is SUPER soft. We have sold a lot of these in this first week of having them in the shop... everybody likes this piece! Wear the tank under it, wear it alone, you can even wear it over the Stated Tunic. It comes only in the Lace weave option. S, M and L... $116.00

    Ankle Deep Pants -- FLAX's classic Ankle pants -- these are narrow, and are supposed to hit you above your skinny little ankles! They have a deeper elastic waist band this time around and come in the solid linens to coordinate with all the tops in this set. Ocean and Rainforest... S, M and L... $90.00. Very smart looking in this collection.

    Essential Duster -- I Love this piece on everyone else taller than me! I feel like I'm actually dusting the floor when I put this on! You need a little height, and then it is stunning! Made from the WOVEN fabrication, the sleeves roll up and reverse to the solid linen, so if you have the Stated Tunic or the Captivating Tank on underneath -- you look really put-together! classic FLAX! S, M and L -- $128.00.

    As always, we can help you over the phone with sizing, body shapes and just what really goes with what. It's hard over the phone and via a monitor... but we can DO IT!

    Oh my GOSH... My closet is distressed, as everything I tried on in the shop came home with me, and my closet had to make room for it all!!!! A GREAT collection of classic linen pieces with some luscious weave-variations tossed in... everything goes with everything else...which makes it terribly hard to make decisions!

    *Grass -- Just a lovely green... lime, grass, kiwi, apple... I don't know which to use to describe... it's a prefect green! Notice the Tattersall option is the COLOR, vs the rose and cornflower below that are more white.
    *Cornflower -- Very pretty -- a redder blue, rather than yellow cast -- notice the seersucker is the DARK color... PERFECT blue.
    *Rose -- Again -- a 'blue' pink, not yellow-based, this has both the seersucker and tattersall in the lighter versions.

    Tank Tunic
    A much longer version of the tank top, you can wear this as a dress if you aren't super-tall, or as a longer top beneath that Cover Story, or alone with leggings... Just depends on where it hits you. Good lines, two pockets!!! We ordered this again in the solid linens -- Rose, Grass and Cornflower in S, M, L G-1, and G-2. I don't get the lighter gauzy fabrics in pieces that can be under-pieces, because sometimes they are too sheer. so... solids are best in these pieces. S, M and L run $71.00 The G-sizes run 75.00

    Split Tunic
    This is just a PERFECT, NORMAL TOP! Good lots of room, good length... nothing fussy, just a plain, nice top!

S, M, L all run $110, while the G-1 is $114.

    Blossum Blouse
    This one reminds me of a Retro look. It has short capped sleeves, and a button placket down the back. Nice swing in the body of the top -- covers your hips well. A bit longer in the back, it lays well for coverage. Real cute, we ordered this in the solids and Seersucker fabrics so we have TONS of them! Rose, Grass and Cornflower in Solids S, M, and L run $74.00 In the Seersucker they are $87. The G-1 in solids are $77 -- we did not get them in the Seersucker.

    Cover Story
    THIS IS OUR FAVORITE PIECE in this collection! It wears by itself or over the tanks, pants and dresses. It is a super-long shirt with a cute curved hemline. The sleeves roll up and have a button tab to keep them there. You can wear this closed as a dress, or open all the way or half way on top of something else. SUPER VERSATILE and really cute! We love it and ordered it in every color and every size we could!!!!! Rose, Grass, Cornflower in solids, Seersucker and Tattersall. Smalls all the way up to G-2. All the fabrications go with each other in this collection so you can wear the Seersucker with the Tattersall if you want! GET THIS PIECE!

    Dock Pants
    A flatter waist band than the Floods, a little shorter, cute and kind of wide. A neat Summer Pant! We ordered them in Grass and Cornflower Seersucker to be totally fun and flowy! These are super cute underneath the solids -- everything, really! We have S, M, L -- $92.00

    Hem Dress
    I like this one! We ordered that gorgeous Grass Tattersall like in the pic... I am 5'3" and it hits me at my knees. I wear it alone or underneath my Cover Story tops, and as you now know... I have several color choices for that! The Tattersall over it, the Seersucker over it or the solid! Hem Dresses in S, M, and L are $112. (I got compliments when I was out shopping with this on!)

    Coastline Dress
    Another super-cute dress option -- it also hits me at my knee, Short sleeves, pocket! and nice neckline that is not gappy... we ordered this in Cornflower Seersucker. Even though it has short sleeves, I wore my Cornflower Seersucker Cover Story over it the other day. LOVE IT! S, M, L runs $96.00

    Silver Wire Neck Rosette and Rosette Earrings
    Oh a Little Something for Our FLAX!
    We have a local artist in Tulsa that makes pretty aluminum jewelry -- and we love it with our FLAX! You'll see it in a lot of our pics.

    Very lightweight rosettes to fit onto a 'collar' and matching earrings... its very fun to wear and looks good with every kind of FLAX we have.

    Neither the daisies or roses weigh anything, and do not tarnish. They look like sterling and do not discolor!
    Silver Wire Neck Rosette and Rosette Earrings
    Rosettes for your neck are larger -- 1-3/4-ish inches, earrings are 1-1/4-ish inches.
    Daisies run 4-ish inches, and earrings 2-inches. That sounds big, but really not because they are so light and airy.

    We can help you figure out what looks good on you, and what to pass by. We can find the right sizes and pick some fun matching pieces for the things you like best. We are having SO MUCH FUN with this!!!
