ginger’s favorite part of the holiday season are the parties! whether they’re family parties with her loved ones, work parties or wild parties in the city she loves getting dressed up in her holiday finest and dancing till her feet hurt. christmas is an excuse for her to wear gold and silver sparkles, bright reds and pops of pink to her heart’s content!
i’m crazy about our collection of old west-inspired accessories. the colors are so beautiful… i don’t know what it is about turquoise and coral but it always draws me in. i love the idea of layering a whole bunch of these necklaces and bracelets. which is your favorite?
ah! loving these little magazine christmas trees and how easy they are to make! i saw them on the blog green eyed monster and thought it was such an awesome idea for using old magazines. i of course have a ton of free people catalogs lying around so i thought… why not? i decided to use our november catalog since its nice and thick and i knew it would make a great tree.
start by folding the first page over as pictured above.
next fold the same page over again, and then fold up the part hanging over the bottom so that you have a straight edge along the bottom.
repeat this step on every page of the magazine – i actually thought it was kinda cool to see how different pages looked folded together like a collage.
once all your pages are folded, stand the tree up and spread out the pages until you’re happy with how it looks! and of course, the more the merrier :)
good morning! we have a new graphic design assistant and she made these adorable holiday downloads for the blog – the smaller one is iphone wallpaper and the larger one is for your computer desktop. but as our graphic designer suggested (and i agree) it would make such cute wrapping paper, don’t you think? just print some out and use it to wrap small gifts!
click on the images to go to our flickr page and download them. enjoy!
she made a really cute card too, i’ll post that next week :)
meadow loves to spend the holidays outdoors. every year she and her friends take off for a cabin in the woods where they spend nights huddled round bonfires drinking hot chocolate, telling stories and playing songs on guitars and wooden flutes. they wake up early to watch the sun rise before exchanging gifts on christmas morning.
our december lookbook is my favorite one yet… for the first time i really don’t think i can pick a favorite! the photography, the styling, the model – it’s all flawless. which outfit do you guys like best?
candy dreams all year long of a white christmas and counts down the days until its time to decorate for the holidays. tradition is important to her and even hanging ornaments on the tree is special to her as each ornament holds sentimental value, reminding her of her childhood and years passed. on the weekend she’ll put on christmas carols and fill her home with the scents of cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg as she bakes cookies and then walks from door to door offering them to her neighbors.
she loves nothing more than giving gifts to her loved ones, and when it comes to receiving, her favorite gifts are the ones that are the most thoughtful and meaningful.
we’re doing another giveaway – this time on twitter!
a lot of you have been asking about the amazing saddle bag on the back of the motorcycle on the cover of our december catalog. this one of a kind piece was made in india, using the same antique quilts used in many of our store displays and embellished with studs and leather fringe. this bag has seen some wear and tear but that just makes it look even cooler! can you imagine having this on the back of your bike?!?
to win all you have to do is head over to our twitter page and tweet a story or memory involving a motorcycle @ us with this link: http://ow.ly/3kGYq. if you don’t already, make sure you follow us on twitter so you don’t miss out on fun stuff like this!
