With the holiday approaching tomorrow, today can be full of travel, preparations, and wrapping up things at work. Amongst all of the chaos, we are looking forward to spending our holiday with loved ones and reflecting on what we are thankful for on a daily basis. And while it may seem hard with the stress of the holidays, choosing to be grateful can actually make you happier, as written in this great New York Times article. We are thankful for being able to share and grow our business here with you. We hope you shop small this holiday season and we are happy to be a part of the Makers Mart pop-up event this Saturday, so if you are in the area please stop by! Thanks for going on this journey with us. Enjoy some photos of beautiful Julie in autumnal Brooklyn, we Love the way she styled our cozy dolman and breezy shirt!
There are certain wardrobe pieces I covet when fall weather hits, easy pieces that can be dressed up or down, layered upon, and never go out of style. Stripes and a bright lip are a fall go-to for me, as well as denim, boots, coffee, and a good bag. Anxious to grab some boots and hot coffee already even though summer weather is still lingering, I looked around for some fresh updates to my fall uniform. I was also reminiscing about paper dolls the other day and decided it would be fun to make some modern paper dolls wearing what I want to wear this fall!
Download & print this paper doll and see yourself how great these fresh updates look. All items are made in the US, plus one made responsibly in Italy. Enjoy!
As the season starts to change, the fashion, produce, menus, coffee offerings, makeup palettes and general vibe tend to shift as well. While the weather may be a bit behind right now (um holy heatwave here in the Los Angeles area) we are surrounded with all things synonymous with fall (thanks PSL), making us want to change our daily surroundings and dig out our favorite fall boots and beanies. It’s a great time to make little changes in our daily lives too. Like kids fresh start at school, we can start something new or get back to something that maybe fell by the wayside this summer. Adopt a new positive daily habit, write more, try that new workout, wear more colors, cook seasonally, among many others!
Something I am going to try this fall is to add a little variety to my hair looks. More often than not, it is just air dried as I run out the door, ponytail for a workout, or a lazy day braid. Here are some I found that I am going to try to mix into my weeks this fall (a few would also work great for workouts)! Click on the links in caption for the how-to info!

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver never fails to say the things most media outlets want to avoid. His latest piece on fast fashion really drives home the point that most people are just not aware of where their clothes are coming from. Most people want to know where their food is coming from these days, so why not your clothes? This video covers a brief history of the manufacturing practices of some of fast fashions biggest players (and not without John Oliver’s humor sprinkled throughout). It is definitely worth watching the whole 17 minutes, just as some “fashion for thought”.

Shawls, scarves, boots, and flowing dresses – no one does that layered style better than the original gypsy herself, Stevie Nicks. She is an icon both in music and fashion. Influencing musicians with her other-worldly voice and mystical lyrics both in Fleetwood Mac and as a solo artist since the seventies. Her grace and dignity throughout her rollercoaster career has stayed intact all the while never losing her badass-ness. Her fashion style, being truly her own and unwavering through the years, has been just as significant of a cultural influence. Her pretty and decidedly feminine style was a refreshing change in the male dominated rock fashion influence and her style resonated with many musical successors, fans, and designers that have embraced bits of her look throughout the years.
This look of gorgeous layers that flow as she moves, usually comprises of these common elements: long dresses or skirts, shawls, boots, and chiffon. Add in some lace, velvet, hats, or leather to complete. Stevie says this came to be partially came from trying to make herself look larger on stage. At 5’1” she used shawls and scarves as wings on stage, chiffon skirts flow large as she ethereally spins with the music and platformed boots gave her height.
As autumn approaches and we try to transition summer clothes to fall, the stylish easy way is to take notes from Stevie. Try a vintage piano scarf or shawl over your favorite summer dress with tights and boots. Throw a beautiful kimono or robe over your cut-offs like a jacket and pair with a hat. Lounge around in flowing oversize pieces. Put your favorite maxi dress or skirt on, turn “Rhiannon” on Spotify, and practice Stevie spins in your bedroom to add some magic to your day!
Ballet is a constant inspiration in fashion and art as history has shown. Such an incredible feat of beauty and strength, the dancers themselves have been muses for centuries as well as the stories, the productions, the costumes, the innovations and more. For us, its that classic mix of colors and textures both on stage and in rehearsal that we can’t help but want in our everyday lives. Plus, the off-duty dancer wears anything with grace and athleticism like no one else.
Right now there is a legend in the making in the world of ballet and if you don’t know about Misty Copeland yet, prepare to fall in love with our ultimate modern ballet muse. Defying all the odds that were against her, with an incredible talent that drove her quick career trajectory, Misty has now been a soloist ballerina at the prestigious American Ballet Theatre since 2007. Her incredible physique and beauty makes her impossible to take your eyes off of. As a lounge style icon, its the classic ballet leotards, sweaters, tights, textures, and colors mixed with modern workout gear and her beauty that gets us inspired.
The original effortless beauty and model / singer / actress, Brigitte Bardot was a master of off-duty, understated yet sexy style. When not filming her style tended towards easy dressing – whether hanging with her beloved animals, on the beach, biking, or on set – perfect looks for lounging.
Often barefoot and in jeans, beach hats, simple sundresses, or that perfect striped t-shirt (“la marinière”), her effortless take on fashion was never overdone and never looked better on her. Take a look at some of our favorite lounge looks of hers.
‘I’m a girl from a good family who was very well brought up. One day I turned my back on it all and became a bohemian.’ –Brigitte Bardot
