I’m so excited to show you this little video!
Last week we shot the photos for our upcoming catalog in August, and we had some very special models! Our August book will feature some wonderful doggies and kitties from the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society, also known as PAWS, in the hopes of raising awareness of all the sweet animals in shelters around the country who need a loving home!
Since the catalog won’t be coming out until August, our intrepid Graphic Designer Kevin was on the scene and made sure to interview some of our furry models! Almost all of these guys and gals are currently up for adoption, so if you see someone you’d like to meet, don’t be afraid to contact PAWS and let them know! My kitty is from PAWS, and he has made me and my boyfriend so very happy since the moment we met him! It’s totally worth it!
Wherever you live, if you are looking for a furry best friend, be sure to check out your local shelter. They are easily found on the web or in the yellow pages, and when you get your friend from the shelter, you really are also saving a life! I can’t imagine life without my kitty Homer!
Welcome friends to our Thursday Poll! Can you believe we’ve had 40 polls now?! I hardly can!
Last week we voted on an array of gladiator sandals, and the Libia Sandal was far and away the winner, with over 400 votes! Yowza!
This week I have been looking at all our cute summer scarves, and I’ve been amazed at all the creative ways one can wear a scarf! We have some really cute new styles, and I’m curious to see which ones appeal to you guys.
First check out the Knotted Modal Scarf, shown below in purple.
Next have a look at our Cherry Blossom Mobius Scarf, worn here as a top, and in red.
Now check out our Slinky Fringe Bandana Scarf in pink.
Next up is the Patterned Sunstroke Scarf, shown here as a top, in plum!
Finally, see our Ultimate Fringe Mobius, worn as a top, in poppy.
Well what do you all think? Which scarf is your favorite?
(And if you feel like it, leave a comment and tell your favorite ways to wear scarves! I’m interested to know!)
Okay so this is interesting – the video below captures police in Denmark hugging helmet-less cyclists and giving them helmets. I know it’s probably just a propaganda thing, but do you guys know anything about this? Even if it is a stunt for good press, it’s really cute to see. Good effort!

These amazing footprints worn into the wood are real! Buddhist monk Hua Chi has been praying in the same spot each day (many, many times a day) for over 20 years at his temple in Tongren, China. Hua Chi is 70 years old now, and according to this article, his footprints inspire the younger monks at the temple.
“Every day I come here and every day I look at the piece of wood, and it has inspired me to continue to make the footprints myself,” Genden Darji, a 29 year-old monk in the monastery, notes.
I love these pretty behind-the-scenes shots from Australian Fashion Week! I can’t get the blue eyeliner underneath the middle model’s eyes out of my head! I want to try it, with a number of different colors. I think it might be something I’d have to wear out at night though, not so much of a day look… What do you guys think?

P.S. Do you think the big bun on the bottom model is all her natural hair??
I am so inspired by this project Color Me Katie created! She and her boyfriend traced themselves in various positions on black paper, cut them out and taped them up around Brooklyn! Then they waited and photographed people passing by when they matched with the shadows. What fun! Check out her blog here!
