Its that time of year… for holiday parties, get-togethers, festive events, and you know what that means: time to find the perfect dress. What I love about our dress selection this season is the range – we have dresses for every type of girl, so whether you want to be sparkly, sexy, sweet, bohemian or comfy, we’ve got you covered.
I put together these little vignettes to show you the range of styles – be sure to check out our dress shop online!
To further explore the Mod Trend and why we love it, Jemma, Naomi and I decided to each pick a look from this trend and put together a vignette incorporating personal items that show what Mod means to us. The look above got my attention immediately and conjured up thoughts about music, books and people that I associate with it.Read More
Our office coordinator is always amazingly put together. It’s hard not to notice her glowing skin, colored lips, and bold brows. Everyone knows these kind of results don’t come without knowing a thing or two, so I caught up with her to get an insider’s peak. She shares on all of her favorite products and has some great tips to give. I learned a lot and will definitely be trying out a thing or two.Read More
I love weekends, don’t you? Come Wednesday I’m lusting for Saturday morning to come. I wake up to the smell of French roast coffee and snooze until I’m ready to step foot outside of the cozy blankets. No alarm, no rushing just a peaceful mind looking forward to two days that you can dedicate to yourself. My mindset right now is all about HALLOWEEN. I decorated my house a little, placed a pumpkin amongst my flea market finds and a little Halloween man on top of my crate box.
I’m leaning towards an autumn leaf vibe; my aesthetic seems to be turning all rustic and autumnal from wearing dark floral prints to gathering earthly things for my home.
Fierce jewelry, tights, and boots are all staples in our accessory sample coordinator’s fall wardrobe. Hailing from Florida her wardrobe is warm weather heavy, but she’s pulled in the power of layering to update it for our cooler Philadelphia climate. Instead of ditching the shorts she pulls in the accessories – tights, socks, and boots – to keep them wearing into fall.
The end effect of many of her outfits is an interesting mix between naughty and nice. Sweet elements like a romantic blouse or cozy girl-next-door socks are paired in the same look with sexy lace or edgy snakeskin. It keeps you guessing, and pulls you into the details.
My personal favorite accessory a girl can have – Abigail!
I love the coordination between her boots and the bag she was carrying – very well thought out.
If you’ve seen our website this week you’re probably aware – we’ve gone mad for MOD! This week on the blog we’ll be exploring this hot trend and why we love it. To kick it off, here’s a little “modboard” ;)
“In periods of rapid personal change, we pass through life as though we are spell-cast. We speak in sentences that end before finishing. We sleep heavily because we need to ask so many questions as we dream alone. We bump into others and feel bashful at recognizing souls so similar to ourselves.”
This weekend’s recipe is a two-parter. You can prepare the two dishes to go together or make them separately. I personally love them together for dinner, but I’ll often save the leftover tofu to throw on a salad for the next day’s lunch. There’s a great candied flavor to the tofu while the veggies inject a bit of spice into the meal. I like to think of this meal as the healthy version of potato chips and honey baked ham. It feels like an indulgence, but in reality you’re really being quite healthy.
Ingredients for Miso-Glazed Tofu:
14-16oz Lite Firm Tofu
¼ Cup White Miso Paste
1 Tbsp Sesame Oil
2 Tbsp Mirin
Ingredients for Spice Roasted Vegetables:
1 Lb. of whatever vegetables you chose (I used yellow squash and zucchini)
1 Tsp. Coriander
½ Tsp. Fennel Seeds
½ Tsp. Red Pepper Flakes
½ Tsp. Italian Seasoning
3 Tbsp. Macadamia Nut Oil
Salt & Pepper to Taste
Slice your tofu block into three layers and place in a towel to soak up moisture.
Cover a small baking dish with tin foil
Slice veggies. You can choose the size; just make sure they’re all more or less uniform.
Mix oil and spices together with in a ramekin with a basting brush
Paint over veggies and mix up so each piece is well coated
Place veggies in oven, and then begin mixing together the miso glaze for your tofu.
Liberally paint the glaze onto either side of each tofu slice with your basting brush.
Place pieces into a larger baking dish
Place into the oven along with your veggies. You can stir up the veggies at this point.
After about 10 minutes flip tofu over and finish baking until glaze looks candied. You’ll want to take the veggies out once they just begin to brown.
I’ve posted some of Beth Hoeckel’s work before; she’s one of those artists I always keep an eye out for new work from. I love her collages and that they’re made of found paper and archival paste, not digitally. One of my favorite hobbies is making collages, it’s something I like to do in my down time while listening to music. It’s incredibly relaxing and also a great way to express your feelings – I actually rarely show mine to people because I think of them as little visual diaries full of mixed emotions, but the cool part is that their meaning is unique to the eye of the beholder. Someone else could look at them and have no idea what the real meaning is behind them.
