LA based Cast of Vices is known for taking vices and turning them into pieces of tongue-in-cheek fine jewelry. Recently, they’ve launched a collection of soft leather bags inspired by iconic NYC bodega shopping bags. Awesome. These corner store bags are made in LA and currently only available at Collete.
Do you remember how cool it was to stack multiple plastic Swatch watches on your wrist back in the day? Years later, the trend has returned but this time more mature, ladylike, and like, totally cooler.
The minute I came across Swedish artist Tove Mauritzson‘s quirky and colorful paintings, I instantly fell in love. Each piece is eclectic, outrageous, and downright WTFabulous. And I absolutely love that her work blends in so perfectly to the decor of her home in Sweden, making them almost 3 dimensional and so alive! Honestly inspired!
Last summer, we were obsessed with shibori indigo tie dying. No, really . . . we just about dyed anything white in sight. So when Free People asked us to include a DIY in their guest blogger series, we knew a new tie dye project was absolutely in order. And as the weather is beginning to warm up, what better time than now to start experimenting with reverse tie dye using bleach! Black tees and tops: watch out!
– a 100% cotton black shirt (we used this Free People tee)
– a few cups of bleach
– a bucket
– a pair of gloves
– a few rubber bands
– 2 flat shaped objects used for binding
