Our February lookbook is so full of light and soft colors, it’s hard to believe it was shot on a chilly day in New York City in an abandoned building… our team shot at 5 Beekman St (more on this location to come) with photographer Anna Palma, who you may remember from this amazing video. Here’s a peek behind the scenes!
Have you ever looked at a girl and thought, “there’s someone who knows what fashion is?” This week’s Style File is one of those girls. She’s not scared of an Avant Garde print or dressing head-to-toe in monochromatic tomato red. Her styling is spot on, the way one images a top fashion editor being styled. Although she always looks relaxed and comfortable, you just know that she’s into fashion. The sweater she throws on is perfectly nubby, and oh, that insanely cool necklace she’s wearing? It’s the logo for her friends’ young fashion line that is blowing up in the UK right now. Her style is flawless with great attention to detail. Look close and you’ll see a dreamy braid hidden in her waves. This girl knows how to dress herself.
London Fashion Week is underway and we have the beautiful blogger Sarah from Baby is a Sinner blog documenting what’s hot in the Big Smoke.
From the city to the style on the streets it’s quite apparent that London has a slightly more Rock N Roll/ Punk vibe than New York and again the colours of Neon made an appearance – a trend we all love!
has any London Fashion Show caught your eye yet?
Here’s a photo diary from LFW! More to come tomorrow!!
Last week we told you about the pastel trend we love for spring, and today we released our February lookbook, a pastel story. This week we’ll take a closer look at some of the pretty hues we love for spring, starting with rose… the color of delicate petals, sun-kissed cheeks and grapefruit, symbolic of gentleness, grace and sweetness.
Spring is coming, I can feel it… you start to notice a little change in the air, it carries with it a scent of the warmth that is on its way, flowers poke their heads out of the ground to see if its safe to bloom yet, and the sun fights to stay out a little bit longer. Read more »
In this episode of Kitchen Confidential we caught up with Chef Jamie as he prepared a charred fennel and roast carrot salad with lemony herbed agave dressing for our prepared salad station. Read more »
It’s funny how life events coincide around similar themes to get you thinking. I went back to my hometown for visit the other weekend and brought a good friend from Philly along. I got to see some old friends and spent quality time with family. The warmth I felt from seeing everyone made for a good weekend, and also coincided with the conversation my friend and I had had on the car ride up.
She was telling me about an article she read that summarized the top five life regrets people report on their deathbed – one of which was losing touch with friends. They wished that they hadn’t let themselves get so caught up in the day-to-day here and now, and instead, picked up the phone or written a letter once in a while. People who once really mattered got lost in the mix of life, but in the end what’s going to matter is who you’ve loved and who loves you back.
In the days following my visit my thoughts resonated on this article and my hometown visit. Some of my friends weren’t around when I was home, and I found myself wanting to give them a call. I’ve vowed to try and do better at staying in touch, so that I don’t let those people get away. Especially today, with all of our technology – smart phones and email – there’s no excuse to not take a little bit of time. Learn from what the dying have said and stay in touch. When you come to the end of your road, you don’t want to be looking back with the same regrets.
Denim is a fabric we can’t get enough of! It’s so easy, so versatile and so cool. This week we’re all about denim dressing as you can see by ourHomepage.
The trend: Head to Toe Denim! That’s right we’re mixing and matching different tones of denim to create a bohemian rock and roll look. Yesterday we went up to the studio to see what looks we could create out of our Denim Collection ; from long and bohemian to short and funky, denim sure made us cool and easy towards the end of the day!
