Last week while in Alaska, I fell in love with local artist V Rae‘s work. Her series of Alaskan wildlife, Fur Fin & Feathers, is done with vibrant watercolors on paper textured canvas or Yupo. The result is a color that is richer and more translucent than conventional watercolor applications. Her technique is unique to V Rae’s self proclaimed thermal imaging mind. She seriously has me wishing I could borrow her eyes just for a day . . .
I’ve been craving oversized, statement jewels as of late and thus, scouring the internet for unique baubles. Enter Gold Philosophy – a newly launched destination for vibrant and dramatic costume jewelry. With a handful of sparkly earrings and bracelets on my wish list, I’m already looking forward to seeing how their assortment will grow . . .
If you were on Instagram late Monday afternoon, you were probably being blown away by the alluring images of Stella McCartney‘s carnival-themed presentation in New York – yes, even P’Trique made an appearance! Models donned the season’s menswear inspired suits, delicate lace dresses, perforated pleated skirts, and floral brocade coats while dancing to a live brass band, playing the strongman game, and taking turns at a ring toss. Head to toe lovely and charming!
When H&M asked us to DIY a boho-inspired item for their summer issue, découpage was the first thing that came to mind. Honestly, does it get any better than customizing a simple handbag with a brilliant floral print? However you create it, it’ll be satisfying to know that you’ve designed yourself a one of a kind bag!
We’re loving NAHM‘s wearable shirt dresses, mullet drawstring shorts, and center slitted frocks and trousers for Resort. But what’s really caught our attention is what Ally Hilfiger and Nary Manivong did with the menswear inspired shirts – with cut-outs in the most unexpected places. We’re intrigued . . . and we want.
