It’s impossible not to admire the detail that goes into one of Stephanie K Clark‘s phenomenal embroidered pieces. Her series of embroidered RVs, houses, and log cabins, all embroidered onto stretched canvas with thread and fabric wallpaper, is simply delightful. I even love how she uses thin black thread to outline background features – not a detail missed!
The brilliant curators behind Bona Drag sure know how to make a girl yearn for a way of life where bohemian mysticism and rock ‘n’ roll sensibility collide. Their latest offerings include jewelry from Pamela Love and Mania Mania, printed dresses from Mara Hoffman, lingerie from Lonely Hearts, and handbags from Lizzie Fortunato. All so beautiful and downright covetable.
Raise your hand if you, too, were blown away by the sick mirrored surfboard featured alongside the dangerously cool collection of shark tooth jewelry in Luv AJ‘s latest lookbook. It makes for the perfect objet d’art for us California-bred beach lovers, which had us seriously jonesing for our own. Lucky for us, designer Amanda Thomas is giving us the exclusive step by step tutorial, showing how we can create the same disco surfboard. And all for under $150.
Stylist Lauren Austin Wood was inspired by the many textiles, brought home from her travels, while designing her baseball cap collection for Wax + Cruz. Made from African wax prints, Guatemalan ikat, Italian bouclé and shibori, and with visors of linen, suede and leather, these are not your average caps. I love the Americana!
Kelly Framel, from The Glamourai, recently paid a visit to Nanette Lepore’s Amagansett home and man, is it fabulously groovy! The unrestrained inclusion of color, art (mostly painted by family members) and kitsch add to it’s nostalgic appeal. You can almost imagine all the wonderful memories that must be made, summer after summer, in this charming getaway.
