Hillary Justin knows a thing or two about vintage denim. Having co-founded the LA based vintage studio Just Say Native, she recently launched her own collection of embroidered vintage denim under the label Bliss and Mischief. Inspired by nature (like the infamous large cactus in her backyard), the sun bled shades of Joshua Tree, and her lovable Uncle Phil, Hilary embroiders authentic vintage Levi’s and military jumpsuits with floral and western motifs using a hand guided machine. Her first collection The Face of The Desert also includes antique Japanese kimonos, soft vintage tees and blankets. We might have to agree with Hillary . . . Bliss And Mischief makes life better.

These handmade leather shoes by Brooklyn based Feit have totally piqued my curiosity. Australian brothers John and Tull Price, the creative director of Rag & Bone footwear, founded the company in 2005 with a small collection of uniquely crafted leather sneakers for men. Unlike the soles of most sneakers which are glued, Feit’s trainers are hand sewn with French calf and buffalo leather, using the Goodyear welt construction. All the care in craftsmanship results in a breathable shoe that ages beautifully and molds to your feet over time. Intriguing, right? I know, I’ve got a couple of their women’s slippers on my wish list . . .
