Though my knowledge of video games and Japanese anime is practically nonexistent, I find myself endlessly amused by Pokémon & Fashion – an online destination where adorable Pokémon characters and highbrow fashion editorials and campaigns magically collide. Lighthearted and clever, it’s a refreshing reminder that fashion shouldn’t always be taken so seriously.
Earlier this month Lauren and I escaped city life with our dear friend Grace, of Stripes & Sequins, for a weekend chock-full of sun and DIY. With an abundant supply of rhinestone and brass curb chain, we decided to try weaving the components together to make our own collar necklaces. It was fun to see how wonderfully different the pieces turned out – each so fabulous in their own unique way! Honestly, isn’t that the best part about DIYing with friends?
We’re excited to be sharing an exclusive sneak peek into Free People‘s September catalog, which launches tomorrow and has us anticipating cooler temperatures. Wherever the Free People girl may go this fall, she’ll always look effortlessly cool in worn-in denim, animal prints, studded accessories and vintage-inspired coats. Love!
