Post image for an item we love: mochila bags

the amazing mochila bags featured in our march catalog are a true labor of love.

each bag is hand woven by tribeswomen of the sierra nevada de santa marta in northern colombia, an act of tradition that has been practiced for thousands of years as a way of preserving their culture and earning a livelihood.  they believe that the act of weaving is a symbol of creativity, intelligence and wisdom, a practice that is passed on from one generation to the next, and the patterns woven into the bags are said to have a spiritual and cosmological significance. the history of these bags and all of the care that goes into them makes them extremely special – something to be cherished for a lifetime.

a third of the profits for each bag sold go to different community-based initiatives aimed at children and at supporting female artisans from indigenous communities in south america.

bag

i love how they look styled in our march catalog – the prints on the bags look awesome mixed with some of the bolder black and white prints in the clothing.

personally, i’ve got my eye on this one… i think it’s the beach bag i’ve been looking for my whole life. the perfect colors, the perfect size…i laid out what i’d pack for a day at the beach.

Odylyne

Post image for Odylyne

Here’s another designer that we have featured in our March book –

ODYLYNE, is derived from all things beautiful. A simple concept and blend of bohemian and vintage styles with a touch of modern, clean lines. The inspiration behind the designs are also deeply rooted in the hippie chic world…where female artist set trends while breaking the rules of tongue-in-cheek fashion. The concept stays true to its original theme of creating the whimsical drama of mystery and sexiness without all the fuss. It just feels good and makes being a goddess pretty damn effortless. 

The dress is a show stopper and can be easily dressed up or down. Here’s a little interview about the brand

Post image for martha on duty

martha hunt is one of our favorite models to work with – in our web studio and on catalog shoots, she consistently brings an amazing attitude and free spirited beauty. this past friday, our web studio did a special shoot with martha and had her style all her own outfits, as well as give makeup and hair direction. i got to watch and take some photos, and i must say… i have a little bit of a girl crush on martha!

she is so fun and full of personality, and the second she sets foot on set she is all business and works the camera like no other.  here’s a little behind the scenes look at martha ON duty, along with the final shots our photographer took of the five looks she styled.

in this look: runaway lace kaftan, IRO vova chain short, jade covered wedge.

so i’m curious, which outfit styled by martha is your favorite?

and stay tuned because later this week we’ll show you what makeup products were used to get her look ;)

I adore the denim top outfit! Beautiful!!
ramona -Mar 29, 2011, 4:40PM
sammy look at the swim section on the website. since they show the swimsuit from the back you will be able to see it. i had to increased the zoom on my screen to really see it... and i wasn't crazy there really was a scar there! its not as big as mine though. i'm one of the unlucky ones that has it pretty much all the way up and down.

Spring face

Post image for Spring face

A Spring face is on my mind – after the dull winter I’m itching to enliven myself and snap out of this greyness.
Golden highlights, spring like skin with a soft glow and subtle make up. Below are the looks that inspire my beauty, thought and the products that I want to buy.

-Mar 13, 2012, 10:24PM
i agree
May Landry -Mar 06, 2011, 8:37PM
Maca is amazing, it really balance your mood swings and when you feel stressed out it really helps you calm down and focus. And the best of all, it's all natural ! I'm not doing an infomercial here, just want to say it's something amazing that we don't really know about ! thx for posting this
