Honestly, I’m kinda crazy about every element that makes up this ensemble, spotted on Shini Park of Park & Cube - plaid on plaid, clutch on bag, red on fuchsia, and layer on layer. The best part, however, is the plaid shirt buttoned up to the top and tied around the right side of the waist. Over a sick skull skirt. Fabulous.
I stumbled upon these refreshingly handsome and functional color block satchels at Treasure & Bond yesterday while shopping in SoHo. And as much as we love The Cambridge Satchel Company, perhaps their bags have jumped the shark since being spotted… everywhere. Regardless, these satchels from Seventy Eight Percent are beautifully hand crafted from wax coated cotton and Italian leather.
Apparently, money does grow on trees! Honestly though, have you ever seen trees scaled with coins? In several wooded areas around Cumbria and Portmeirion in the UK, people have been hammering small denomination coins intro trees for centuries. The practice is said to date back as far as the early 1700s, in Scotland, where ill people would stick florins into trees in hopes that the trees would cure their illnesses. In 1877, Queen Victoria wrote about visiting an oak tree with coins stuck in it in Scotland’s Highlands. Amazing.
