she’s a dreamer, a soul-searcher and a wanderer. drifting along, deep in thought, her eyes tell tales of mysterious adventures. meadow is our bohemian girl who wears loose, flowing tops and dresses that catch the breeze as she roams the earth in search of inspiration. she mixes patterns and prints and piles on jewelry with a handmade, natural touch. on her feet are moccasins or sandals but she’d rather be barefoot. she hears music wherever she goes – at one with nature, she’ll often pause to smell a flower, pet an animal or just to take in the beauty that surrounds her. little trinkets and memorabilia like leaves, stones, a matchbook with thoughts strewn across it, fill her pockets and then the pages of her journals when she eventually returns home.
here are some picks that I could see meadow wearing:
1. lonicera tunic; 2. stitched boho tank; 3. desert maxi dress; 4. vlatava convertible skirt; 5. lucy loves charlie tunic; 6. medina sun hat; 7. quogue feather sandal; 8. vintage bandana; 9. woodstock beaded necklace; 10. dipped feather earrings; 11. suede medicine bag.
another place where you’re likely to see a ton of meadow girls running around? music festivals! shop our featival picks, which meadow would surely love, here.
inner space (series)
if you ever want to be transported to a world of psychedelic spirituality, look no further than the artwork of brandi strickland. she is a north carolina-based mixed media collage and illustration artist, and her talents know no boundaries. i first heard of her when i wrote about the WAFA collective a little while back (she’s one of their contributing artists) and i was completely enthralled with her work. the mix of color, pattern and symbolic imagery is so complex that when you view details of her collages up close you will notice far more than what you see at first glance. once i reached out to her and asked her some questions for the blog, i liked her even more- and i identify so much with the way she started out as an artist.
read on for an interview with brandi and to see much more of her rad artwork.
with parents like john taylor (duran duran’s bass player) and amanda de cadenet (photographer who currently dates nick valensi of the strokes) it would be impossible for atlanta de cadenet to NOT be cool, but she’s making a name for herself on her own with her funky style and party-going lifestyle. atlanta is all over fashion blogs and the cobrasnake and its easy to see why- her magnetic personality comes across in every photo of her. this is a girl who is comfortable in her own skin, knows how to let loose and isn’t afraid to show her quirky side – a real free spirit.
whether she’s wearing girly florals and crochet or boyish tees and mixed prints, she always looks amazing and like she’s having the time of her life!

a reader sent me the link to these beautiful photos taken by katie stoops, using some of our clothing! i love the outdoor setting of the photos but i think my favorites are the close-ups because they really show the beautiful details of some of our pieces. check out more of katie’s work here.
