Post image for A big love for bass shoes

We have fallen head over heels in love with Bass shoes. That 50’s jive look is growing on us in a big way.

Bass has collaborated with Rachel Antonoff to design a collection of sweet/masculine looking shoes.  I think these shoes are perfect for spring; add them to your cute dresses or make your jeans a little more interesting.

What I like about Bass is the quality leather and thorough workmanship; you know you’re invested in a pair of shoes that will last a lifetime.

I think they are endearing, and I love how they have been styled on Tennessee from The Like.

We’d like to know, are penny loafers your thing?

James Dean made them ‘cool’ in the 50’s after he was seen rocking around in them but we love to know how you fp girls would wear them?

Post image for california girls

with our latest catalog being shot in california, i wanted to get some insider scoop on what its like to live there – i’ve been to  LA several times but could never see myself settling there…san francisco was much more my speed.  so who better to ask about life in so cal than two fashionable bloggers that were born and raised there – natalie and dylana suarez!

where in LA do you live?

in the valley area of los angeles.

what is your favorite thing about living on the west coast?

natalie: i love the beautiful weather and constant sunshine. i’m not much of a gloomy weather type of person!

dylana: my favorite thing definitely has to be the beautiful weather we always have year round, all the amazing beaches we can go to on a sunny day, and the amazing thrift / vintage shops.

what are some essential pieces every girl in LA must own?

natalie: a great pair of skinny jeans and comfortable boots! also, a big bag is great for toting around everything you need on hand.

d1

dylana: every LA girl must own a good pair of denim shorts, maxi or ankle length skirts, a good pair of leather ankle boots, silk blouses, and a lightweight blazer.

nd

where are your favorite places to shop/eat/go out?

natalie: we were born and raised in santa monica so that is definitely my favorite part of the city. i love main street and montana avenue for the cute, little restaurants. i love 3rd street for the shopping. from there, i usually walk to the boardwalk and beach.

DSCN0983

santa monica

dylana: i love to shop on the santa monica promenade or the americana in glendale. my favorite place to eat is also santa monica because you can get just about anything there and there are a lot of cute little restaurants to eat at. i also really love main street in santa monica.

DSCN0968

3rd street promenade, santa monica

is there a certain spot/place you like to go to get away from it all?

natalie: i love hiking up will rogers park on the westside. you get beautiful views of all of los angeles and it is super relaxing.

Will-Rogers-Inspiration-Point-view

inspiration point, will rogers park

dylana: if i want to get away from the city, i can just stay right at home in the valley, where things are of a much slower pace. i also like to go up to ventura and to relax on the beach or do some thrift shopping on main street over there.

IMG_3976

what’s your ideal way to spend a day off in LA?

natalie: my ideal day off would be biking along the beach from santa monica down to venice. in venice, i usually grab abbot pizza and gelato at nice cream!

Bikelove

dylana: i like to meet up with friends at a new restaurant that i haven’t tried yet to just hang out and laugh. i also love to spend a few hours at the bookstore reading magazines or i head to the movies. another thing i love to do on my days off is take a nice long bike ride or hike around my neighborhood. it totally clears the mind!

Venice Beach 046

and here are their picks from our february catalog – i could see them wearing any of these pieces and looking lovely in them!

natalie’s picks:

clockwise from top left: wrapped in peats maxi skirt;  everything nice lace dress; morning glory chiffon skirt; hearts flutter top; super 70s wideleg jean; first bloom maxi dress.

dylana’s picks:

rare rabbits

Post image for rare rabbits

this month when walking into our cafeteria you must pass by a brigade of jackrabbits, perched alertly on their haunches with their ears straight up in the air, like they’re about to take off running.  i looked up the artist who makes them, and the story behind them is pretty cool.

artist beau buck uses recycled materials, including hunting vests, denim, mexican blankets, and even remnants of a betsy ross american flag.  he also collects coats, bags and other fashion items that are made with fur, leather, teeth and feathers, and repurposes them as sculptures of the animals they originate from. very neat idea!

the flag poles outside building 543 down here at the navy yard got a little makeover today! this “yarn bomb” is the work of artist jessie hemmons of ishknits. i’ve posted about yarn bombing before – i think its such an interesting phenomenon that has been growing in recent years, with various crocheted objects popping up all over the world – a lot of it done anonymously.

ishknits

if you live in the philadelphia area, chances are you’ve seen some of jessie’s work (pictured above).  however, she told me that in some areas (like old city, where i live), city officials will have the artwork removed when they spot it. why would anyone want to do that? i think it’s beautiful, and i’m thrilled that we now have bright pink flag poles at the navy yard as it feels very appropriate for free people :)

in the dressing room area of our pittsburgh store, look up and you will see these amazing chandeliers made out of deconstructed paper umbrellas dancing overhead. they were inspired by the amazing work of artist sylvia marius:

i was immediately intrigued by them and went down to ask our display team how they were made. they were kind enough to give me a little lesson on how to do it and let me use their supplies to make my own! it’s actually not hard, as with most projects it just takes a little time and patience.

IMG_2975

IMG_2976

IMG_2982

what you need:

a paper umbrella- you can find these in chinatown or online at amazon or party supply stores. don’t worry about the design or quality of the umbrella because you’re going to cut it up!

you’ll also need some cord or heavier string, thread, beads and scissors. i used some strips of fabric our display team had lying around as well, but just for decorative purposes.

our display team had some really pretty beads they let me use, but you can find beads at any craft or art supply store.

3

start by cutting the paper out from between all the framing – make sure not to cut the white string part! also our team, and i, opted to leave some of the paper on the frame because we like the way it looks and it gives the chandelier some color. i was able to pretty much just tear the paper right off, this part was easy.

IMG_3000

4

for the next step, measure out pieces of string to reach from the end of one spoke to the end of the umbrella handle – i tied some of the fabric strips just below where i was attaching the string so it wouldn’t slip down – you could also tape it into place.

IMG_3006

IMG_3012

it’s ok if the spokes curve a little bit too – i actually liked how it looked that way. i also wrapped the entire handle in fabric strips… which i probably should have done before tying all the string on… ;)

IMG_3019

now its time to start stringing beads! to leave spaces of empty string in between beads, just knot the thread around a bead and continue.

7

tie the strands of beads right to the spokes of the chandelier at random intervals.

8

and you’re done! hang the chandelier somewhere that you can admire it, and enjoy :)
