in honor of stevie nicks‘ birthday, here is our adorable web studio intern channeling the gold dust woman :)
happy birthday stevie! you inspire us every day.
a new vintage loves vignette went up today! this one is called animal instincts and i think its pretty apparent why :) i found a bunch of great vintage photos of ladies rocking the leopard print that i wanted to share, maybe they’ll provide some inspiration!
i love this more modern vintage take- jeans and converse kicks go with everything! here are some of the vintage pieces we’re carrying that i have my eye on…
i’m sad that this is the last batch of behind the scenes images from hawaii! i loved the photos so much (taken by the talented thomas northcut). the pics of elsa hosk and tallulah morton frolicking in the surf are making me SO ready for memorial day weekend!
i’m sure some of you may have been curious as to what ROAM hawaii is when brooke mentioned it in her post- i was too and checked out the website, and i got completely lost going through their photos. ROAM is a “mobile marketplace” from which brooke and a few of her friends sell handmade and one of a kind pieces from its traveling van (their “tiger mobile”!) that roams around the island. how cool is that?! do you ladies have room for one more? ;)
pineapple fields, roadside markets, lei shopping, surf boards, island snow, coconuts, luaus, flowers, ocean, sun and sand…

ponchos are typically thought of as a fall/winter thing, at least in my mind, but with our may catalog we decided to breathe some new life into the poncho as a light and easy summer layer – and the perfect beach cover-up. the idea of ponchos on the beach was first introduced to the fashion world back in the 70s – check out these images i found on tumblr!
these definitely play on the idea of using the poncho as a cover up and when you take it off, using it as a beach blanket – the boxy shape of ponchos makes them perfect for this. but that’s just one reason why they’re so great- in addition to being functional, they can also be really cute and sexy. here are some images I love of stylish gals rocking ponchos the summer way!
even heavier ponchos can work on a cooler spring/summer day- love how they look with shorts or a skirt and bare legs!
personally i can’t get over how this poncho is styled on our website with the nightcap lace bellbottoms. i would definitely wear this for a laid-back night out in summer after spending the day lounging on the beach!
items pictured: kona pointelle poncho, nightcap lace bell bottom – color coming soon!, on the fringe poncho, miranda sun hat, loa woven bracelets, fresno aviators, vacancy bustier bikini, arrow straw beach tote, terry cloth lined towel.

Macramé has landed on our fp page bringing a little bit of unique texture to our summer feet. Many people get confused with Macramé and crochet so here’s a little about its background. Macramé is an art of decorative knotting without using needles or hooks. By using a series of knots, it can be created using any kind of material. You can use fine thread or even use leather strips. The outcome – a truly unique texture that creates interest.
We love the 1970’s influence and the workmanship aesthetic it portrays deriving from the early sailors of the seven seas. Sailors made macramé objects in off hours while at sea, and sold or bartered them when they landed, thus spreading the art to places like China and the New World. Nineteenth-century British and American sailors made hammocks, bell fringes, and belts from macramé. They called the process “square knotting”, after the knot they used most frequently.
However, the trend has made its way back and made an impact on the runaways for spring/summer 2011, but how do you wear such an intricate look?
Let the texture tell the story of your outfit; team with a simple sundress and brown satchel, maybe a no print outfit would work best avoiding over busy-ness or run wild with the 70’s look and team some cute little Macramé shoes with bell bottoms and a simple tee.
We’re loving the shoes that are featured here they’re the ideal summer shoe!
