Lauren and I both share a deep adoration for the Southwest and just about anything that draws inspiration from the region. So obviously we love that Tamar Wider, of The 2 Bandits, uses conchos, najas, and squash blossoms as motifs in her jewelry collection. And her recent addition of two majestic stones, moonstone and turquoise, has us especially enthusiastic! This week we’re giving away our favorite concho wing cuff from the collection, so simply leave a comment below, follow The 2 Bandits on Twitter, and a winner will be selected at random on Monday, June 11th. (Winner will be announced and contacted by email. Good luck! xx *** Contest now closed. Congrats to Sandra H!)
There’s something genuinely nostalgic and wonderfully simple about Suzanne Rae’s spring collection. Her lookbook video has me daydreaming of relaxing lakeside in the adorable bandeau bikini this summer . . .
We have such a huge appreciation for artists who surprise us by unexpectedly transforming ordinary and mundane objects into impressive works of art. Photographer Suzanne Jongmans‘ higher calling involves transforming discarded packing foam and recycled insulation materials into dramatic costumes inspired by 16th and 17th century Flemish and Dutch paintings. Merging elements from the past and present, Jongman has effectively changed our perception of waste. And the results are simply striking.
Prints on prints on prints . . . honestly, it’s what Suno does best. I’m loving the west coast-casual vibe for resort, as well as the combination of graphic prints in sweet shades of pink, lavender and yellow. Inspiring, as usual!
If only we posessed magical powers that allowed us to simply blink and be transported to any destination of our choosing. In a perfect world, I’d like to spend the rest of my week at Anantara Kihavah Villas, sipping cocktails on soft white beaches and taking dips into the crystal clear waters of the Maldives . . .
