Billowy, boxy, and utilitarian shapes in silk lamé, cottons and georgettes – I adore Electric Feathers‘ entire fall collection. I can’t wait until I’m in New York next month so that I can stop in Leana Zuniga’s new Brooklyn store, Electric Nest, and try on all those eighties inspired jumpsuits. Who doesn’t love a good onesie?
With Mother’s Day just around the corner, I couldn’t be more excited for the recent launch of Mother Magazine, an online destination that celebrates cool moms, provides in depth parenting advice, and shares amazing leads on the cutest toys and chicest children’s clothing. It’s fresh, beautiful, stylish and a great read – exactly what a new mom like me needs. To all you moms out there, happy Mother’s Day!
Did you know that our beloved Breton striped tee was originally worn as a uniform for French navy seamen in the 1850s? The original design featured 21 stripes, one for each of Napolean’s victories. And it wasn’t until Coco Chanel introduced the stripes as part of her 1917 nautical collection, that it became associated with Parisian inspired style. How is that for a bit of history? Whether it be a classic tee, a dress, a sweater or a crop top, or even an organic version, we can’t get enough of blue and white stripes. Oui, oui!
