Post image for The new shoe of the season

The platform has taken a quirky new direction. A new sole has appeared on the fashion front and we’re diggin it.
The flatform was a key statement throughout the spring/ Summer runaway shows – Derek Lam, Prada, and Vena Cava
All made their silhouette that much more interesting by adding this elevated shoe.

They have the comfort of wearing flats but give you that attractive 5 inch lift without the cripple factor.
We here at the office love them and find them the perfect way to add quirkiness to any outfit.

Flatforms, are you digging the shoe of this season?

See our selection here Flatforms

Post image for austin day two

after getting settled in at the house on thursday night, we walked to a nearby restaurant called z tejas for a delicious dinner outside under tree-strung lights…

the guacamole was amazing.

i woke up friday morning to the soft strumming of guitar and came downstairs to find our hair and makeup artists dennis and deanna, who got in late the night before.  not a bad way to wake up!

austinnew28

coffee on the front porch as the sun comes up…i could do this every day.

models ashley smith and anastasia khodkina arrive for the first day of shooting!

austinnew11

while waiting for shooting to get started ashley picked up one of the guitars at the house and started playing…it was such a beautiful moment.

austinnew9

we’re working with austin-based photographer alexandra valenti – i am such a huge fan of her work, so it was really exciting to meet her. she has amazing style, too!

two members of local band the happen-ins, who are friends with alexandra valenti. i can’t get over that california raisins tank!

austinnew24

the band introduced us to the michelada, a concoction of tecate beer, bloody mary mix and lime – apparently you can’t come to austin and not try one! it’s interesting, that’s for sure :)

austinnew22

Michelada's are my favorite! A friend of mine from Mexico City introduced me to them and now it's my drink of choice.

Michelada it's the best! We drink it all the summer here in Monterrey, Mexico.. you need to try the "clamato" =)

Post image for work is love made visible

sometimes artwork is a lot more complex than it might appear at first glance, and that is certainly the case with these paintings by mark warren jacques.  don’t get me wrong, i love the colors and patterns and imagery he creates but even just knowing the titles to these pieces gives them a much more meaningful context.

“work is love made visible”

“i wasn’t there when you made it but i feel like i’m there when i’m lookin at it.”

Post image for Australia Guest Blogger: Lauren Brooks

My friend Lauren has lived in Australia for a couple of years now. She is British and has settled into the low key lifestyle Australia has to offer perfectly. She has an adorable blog that she uses as an online visual diary – sharing her thoughs and inpiration with the world. She let’s us take a peek into her lifestyle there. Below she shares her thoughts on Yamba one of her favourite beaches.

Here’s her Blog Baumbach

The Yamba Story.

I live in the land of sun and sky, beaches and beauty. I moved to Australia from the UK just over two and half years ago and have based myself in Brisbane.

Just over three hours drive from home and I can be in Yamba. One of Australia’s best-kept secrets, same beauty and wonder as Byron Bay but imagine it before the travelers took over.

 
One pub perched on the cliffs overlooks the beach and a perfect place to sip beer and soak up the views. The home of Billabongs creator and a pro surfer attraction with the famous Angourie surf break just down the road.

Yamba calms me, it has a presence and a serenity that I search for and haven’t found anywhere else yet. Beautiful coastline, perfect for learner surfers like myself to practice my surf skills and to get tossed around by the waves.

back your bags

Pitching a tent and spending a few days is all you need to unwind and escape from the city.
Yamba I love you with all my heart, one day when I have made my mark I will buy a plot near the beach and call you home.

The seasons are changing, and we’re finally opening our eyes to beautiful florals and delicate lace.
The trees are blossoming and there’s that little bit of humidity in the air making us excitied for the summer sun.

Around the office today floral and lace brought that little bit of life to our black items.

Post image for tunesday: stevie nicks

i feel like i’ve been hearing a lot about stevie nicks lately… maybe its because she’s touring right now so she’s at the forefront of people’s minds.   even my boyfriend has a crush on her- which is totally fine, she’s amazing (the first concert he ever went to was fleetwood mac, isn’t that cute?). one of my friends posted this video on facebook today and watching it, i’ve got a bit of a crush on her too.  so, since we could all use a little stevie every once in a while, here’s that video and some of my fave quotes and pics of her. she will always be one of those inspirations that never, ever goes out of style.

“She is like a cat in the dark
And then she is the darkness”

“Like a heartbeat drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering
What you had
And what you lost…”

s4

“And it all comes down to you
Well you know that it does, well…
Lightning strikes…maybe once…maybe twice…
Oh and it lights up the night
And you see your gypsy”

s6

“She broke down and let me in
Made me see where I’ve been
Been down one time
Been down two times
I’m never going back again”

“rock on, gold dust woman”

Post image for a bag for coachella

who’s going to coachella this weekend?! unfortunately we aren’t going this year but that doesn’t mean we can’t get in the mindset… here’s a look at what i would bring if i were heading to coachella…

i drew most of my inspiration from the two outfits pictured above.  the outfit at far right is PERFECT- our little plaid cropped bralettes can be worn on their own, over a tank, or under some cute overalls like the puddle jumper romper! add the romana fest sandal and gorgeous rio brillante bag to complete the look. then the next day, wear it with some bright blue cutoff shorts and the embroidered mesh crop top like sasha pivovarova from our april catalog :)

packing lightly and being able to mix and match is key for music festivals – the sophia bikini top would look great with the overalls or just with the cutoffs as well! i would also bring a scarf to either sit on or cover up my hair, which would surely be a mess after dancing in the hot sun all day and into the night. the feather straw fedora and sunglasses would also be in my bag to keep the california sun out of my eyes. and in addition to the sandals i’d bring along some comfy kicks like the muddy waters sneakers.

when i’m at a festival, sometimes i don’t want to worry about carrying a bag so the artists and revolutionaries fanny pack would be ideal, and would hold my small journal and some sunblock. and i’m loving these candy-colored shades of nail polish by chanel! finally, i’m obsessed with the bag charms by the 2 bandits and the cute saba feather clips (on the straw hat and in sasha’s hair above)! clip ‘em to your bag, hat, belt loop or right into your hair! the perfect festival accessory.

those are my picks,  click here to go to our festival shop for more inspiration :)

Post image for behind the scenes of our April Lookbook

Our April Look Book went up today and it’s truly beautiful. The concept is called Modern romance of a beautiful ballerina in decayed, decadent environment.  It was shot in a dilapidated house in west Philly with crackled walls and peeling paint.  I joined the image team to take some behind the scenes photos and to get to know the model a little bit more. The place was beautiful – the walls were full of texture, and the light was soft.  It definitely gave that feeling of something beautiful falling apart to reveal something even more interesting. We had a great time!

you can see the lookbook here

Post image for april catalog diary: day one, shooting with sasha

last week i gave you the low-down on hair and makeup and the lead-up to shooting, and now it’s time for the action to begin! here’s a behind the scenes look at shooting with sasha pivovarova.

being able to watch a world class model in action was such an awesome experience.  sasha blew me away- she was so sweet and soft spoken in person, and had a very graceful, swanlike presence on set.  her ability to strike completely unnatural poses and make them seem effortlessly natural is incredible.

sasha’s jewelry and doodle on the makeup table.

in between shots hair and makeup were touched up.

guy reviewing the shots – he’s so good, he could probably take one photo for each outfit and be done, but he seemed to have an idea in his head of what he wanted each shot to look like and wouldn’t stop until it was perfect.

IMG_2583

sasha was a natural with the animals – very playful and sweet.

IMG_2589

IMG_2654

we were all crazy about this outfit – the combination of the long-in-the-back raglan tee and mesh ombre skirt is to die for! i loved that she just wore socks with this look too, giving it a very relaxed loungy feel.

someone on set (i cant remember who) had the idea of using one of the belts in the shoot instead of a leash :)

sasha loved this necklace – and we all loved this outfit, our favorite of the day!

I just recieved my Romana fest sandal in after waiting on them for about 3 months. They are not what they are described to be. The descritption says they are suede but they are not. They are cheap leather. I am very disappointed
fp naomi -Apr 27, 2011, 9:21AM
lindsay - they are called the "romana fest sandal," but we're completely sold out of them until 7/3, so keep an eye out!
