Post image for summer getaways – going up the country

bottom right photo by suzy wimbourne.

Meadow is a girl who loves old world charm, she’s cultured and interested in the fairytale of life –  reading folklore makes her imagination run wild into a world of illusion and utopia.

Her nomadic way of thinking is projected in the way she dresses. Her wardrobe is a cluster of treasures from around the world. Each item tells a story.

Her ideal destination would be the English Country – Cornwall to be exact.

A historic Farm is where she would stay within wild flower meadows that are grazed by cattle and sheep. The place is Botelet, a few miles west of Liskeard in Cornwall. Patchwork of ancient fields and a wet woodland, capped by the Neolithic Hill Fort of Bury Down rural setting. It’s the type of place you can only imagine existing in Enid Blyton books.

She would travel solo with a heavy rucksack of books and sketch pads. She would wander the fields in the day, tell her tales to the wildlife and nestle down by the streaming rivers.

She would stay in the mirrored 70′s showman’s caravan (pictured above) which is positioned in the orchard amongst campions and bluebells with great views over rolling fields to the distant sea.

Items left to right:

Tiny Dancer Skirt, Eyelet Boot, Caravan Flared Skirt, Knotted Ditsy Floral Headband, Sleeveless Printed Cinch Waist Tunic, In Harmony Necklace, Mini Kurta, Oversized Slouchy Straw Bag, Beyond Vintage Long Sleeve Dashiki Shirt, Cleo Lace Up Sandal.

Post image for summer getaways – the beach

she loves the sand between her toes and salt water in her hair, and the sun brings a sparkle to her eye.  her style is easy and effortless- soft materials, solid colors and silhouettes that can be sexy when dressed up.  the most important thing is comfort because she never knows what the day will hold- it could end cuddled up in blankets by a beach bonfire or with a night on the town so versatility is key.  she’s all about the layers upon layers in the winter but she lives for spring, summer and splashing in the surf.

when thinking about sandy the lyrics to the beatles song “julia” always come to mind.

sandy’s summer getaway is the beach, whether that be a tropical destination like vieques in puerto rico or the california coast.  she always packs light- easy pieces that can be worn as beach cover-ups during the day and then dressed up if she goes out at night, and a warm sweater or jacket is a must for evenings when the breeze chills her sun burnt skin.  in her beach bag are definitely a few items from – what else? – our beach line; sunglasses and a big brimmed hat to shade her eyes, sandals and some accessories to throw on at night time.

1. portman top rimmed wayfarer; 2. straw and leather tassle tote; 3. modern haze printed bikini; 4. printed towel; 5. north beach wrap sandal; 6. siwy madeleine cutoffs; 7. giant brim straw hat; 8. ruffle sleeveless tunic; 9. ammonite cluster necklace; 10. fp pull on jean; 11. green almond druzy ring; 12. zulu dress; 13. black sands tunic; 14. centered pullover.

my greatest loves are my husband, family and friends… i also love penguins and butterflies! my favorite place in the world is the great barrier reef in austrailia. i went there on my honeymoon and had the most amazing time! the weather, the water and the landscape were unforgettable. i love to shop and walk around NYC, people watch, eat at new restaurants, spend time with friends and hang out with my family in florida. on a typical day off i’ll exercise, walk around the city and explore new places, spend time in central park, catch up on tv from the week and go out to a fun dinner with friends!

the giant whole foods on 5th and lamar isn't the original whole foods. the original (which is now Cheapo Discs) was built in 1980 on lamar and 11th. The store flooded in 1991, and in the late 90's they built another location which is now book people, rei, and anthropologie. in 2005, the giant whole foods on 5th and lamar was built, which is the biggest whole foods in the world.

my greatest loves are my family and good friends – but i also love rice, japanese restaurants and flip flops (slippers)! my favorite place in the world is probably the beach, the couch with my brother, or my bed. i love sleep, even though i don’t always get a lot! a big hobby of mine is definitely sports. i was always a bit of a jock, playing my whole life and through college. my family has always been pretty athletic.   right now i’m still living at home and enjoying my relaxing saturdays! on a typical day off i’ll sleep in, mostly spend the day with my little cousins that are the cutest, funniest kids in the world (that ranges from playing pretty pretty princess to kickball). end the day with a movie, a beer and some laughs…i call that a good day! i’m inspired on a daily basis by my mood. depending on how i’m feeling on a certain day is what probably makes me notice certain things i might not on another day.  also just working here is very inspirational – everyone’s tastes are so different and exciting to see!

my greatest loves are my boyfriend, my mom and dexter terrier – one of my hobbies is terrier care and maintenance! i also love voraciously reading books about assorted topics. lately i have been obsessed with henry VIII and his various wives and children. cooking delicious food, watching law and order and going to scooter rallies are some of my other hobbies. on a typical day off i’ll be doing one of those things- if i am feeling lazy, then watching any incarnation of law and order on the couch. if i am feeling spry… hanging out with friends or family, wandering around south philly…having adventures! one of my favorite places is the beach – my secret dream is to be an old lady in a mumu on the jersey shore. i like music from hip hop to riot girl to metal to old reggae and soul. some favs are desmond dekker, bikini kill, new york dolls, the modern lovers, bratmobile, skatalites, biggie smalls, lil kim, toots and the maytals, peaches, guns n roses, the smiths, sean paul, the pogues, the clash, stevie wonder, alton ellis, john holt… my ipod is a hot mess!

the orangery in london is my favorite place in the world – it overlooks kensington palace. they serve afternoon tea and have the best cucumber sandwiches i have ever tasted! i love photography, traveling, cooking, painting… i like making stuff. on a typical day off i’ll wake up and go to the corner diner for breakfast. then go to reading terminal and buy fresh fruit and then walk around philly and head to the park or water. i probably would end the night with dinner with some friends. i have some bizarre taste in music – i like ALL kinds. taylor swift, phil collins, edward sharpe, mariah carey, wendy rene are some of my favorites. the people i work with inspire me on a daily basis – seeing what these girls wear to work is inspiration enough!

Post image for Aztec me – Tribal Jewelry Trend

Untitled-3

Untitled-4

Tribal jewelry is the expression of faith, articulation of culture and rendition of archetypal imagination of human beings in its most primal form.

 

When it comes to tribal you have to think statement! Bold accessories that will scream warrior queen.

 

Don’t be scared of going big. I’ve always been a huge fan of Marni when it comes to getting courage to wear quirky, bold accessories. Consuelo Castiglioni adds a new meaning to the notion of wearing accessories. Her creations are always pieces of art with intense tribal eccentricity, beautiful and artistically chosen.

 

We have an amazing selection of African inspired jewelry in our accessories shop at the moment. We believe in piling high all the bracelets to give your summer wardrobe that added Aztec feel.
