DIY Chindi Reindeer

The moment I spotted these colorfully wrapped reindeer and moose at Anthropologie last December, I knew I had to DIY it for HonestlyWTF this holiday season. Created in the style of vibrant Chindi rugs from Jaipur, India, these wrapped reindeer are incredibly fun to make, are a clever way to repurpose old t-shirts, and make fabulous gifts!

The Kooples

I have absolutely fallen in love with The Kooples‘ ad campaign, which features real-life couples looking drop-dead cool and outfitted in interchangeable separates by Kooples, of course. A bit of rock ‘n’ roll with a British edge, the line was founded by three French brothers who turned to Saville Row for their iconic ateliers. Saville Row is a street in Mayfair, London, made famous for its bespoke tailoring. If fact, the term “bespoke” is understood to have originated in Savile Row when cloth for a suit was said to “be spoken for” by individual customers. Check out the rest of the too-sweet videos from their campaign here!

Santa Fe, NM

Note to self: 5 days is not nearly enough time to explore Santa Fe for the first time. The downtown area alone is bursting at the seams with wonderful galleries, charming boutiques, and fantastic museums. Here are just a few highlights from my trip via the ever so addicting Instagram. By the way, Lauren has finally joined Instagram too so be sure to follow her here!
