Post image for thursday poll – edition 73

well well well…it’s thursday poll time!

last week i asked about our pretty floral tunics and it was a close vote but the winner was the burbank tunic, with 32% of the vote!  this week, with the holidays upon us, i wanna know which of the following items you would splurge on…or would most want someone else to splurge on for you!

a fashionable piece like the graham & spencer faux fur vest:

a pair of must-have shoes like the keira buckle boot:

a leather bag like the obi cross body bag:
obi cross body bag

a vintage statement necklace like the one-of-a-kind vintage cluster necklace:
one of a kind vintage cluster necklace

or a fabulous jacket like the leather bomber by giorgio brato:
Leather Bomber Jacket By Giorgio Brato

time to vote!

Post image for color me happy

if you’re anything like me, the winter months can be a bit depressing…but did you know that wearing bright colors can actually improve your mood?

studies show that the brightness and purity of certain colors, and personal associations with them, can have specific effects on your mood.  shades of red and purple are said to boost energy levels by causing your body to pump out more adrenaline.  green and yellow are naturally associated with sunshine and the outdoors, and studies show that they can make you feel happy and upbeat.  green also evokes feelings of hope and renewal, like the feeling you get on a sunny spring day.  blue, which brings to mind the sky or the ocean, is a soothing, calming color that can make you feel less anxious.  and if you really want to bring out your fun-loving spirit, wear attention-grabbing neon colors like hot pink and lime green, known for being flirty and fun.

Post image for love heals

of all of the jewelry designers we have featured, this one is my personal favorite…

the name love heals immediately brings to mind the notions of compassion, spirituality and family, which are the core elements behind this jewelry collection created by adriana goddard. the line is run in collaboration with her son gunnar and daughter elisa. adriana spent the earlier part of her life traveling around europe and supporting herself by selling jewelry at markets. more recently, she has studied healing and spiritual arts, the influence of which is very apparent not only in the name of the jewelry collection, but in the pieces themselves.

each symbol and charm holds an individual meaning, and the jewelry also represents greater social and environmental causes, such as tree planting, child slavery and child blindness organizations. for each piece of jewelry purchased from love heals, 10 trees are planted, a donation is made to abolishslavery.org (to fund the equivalent of one month of a child’s freedom), and a donation is made to keep a child from blindness for one year with vitamin angels, who provide critical nutrients to children on the verge of going blind in inner cities around the world. in just one year since starting the program, 250,000 trees have been planted in the u.s. and africa. in addition, all of the love heals jewelry is made by hand inside a 30-foot geodesic dome on the family’s organic farm in ojai, california. the results are very earthy, bohemian pieces with a feminine touch, and the greater meaning behind them makes them all the more irresistible.

whenever the images are ready for an upcoming catalog, our team lines them up in the hallway for everyone to look at. we pick our favorite and mark it with a post it note, and this helps them decide which images to use and which one goes on the cover. it’s really fun…these photos are for our march catalog, and they look great!
