Summer Essentials

 

It’s officially summer, you know what that means…. summer must haves are here! We’ve come up with the perfect summer ready outfit and accessories. Whether you’re going to tan with your friends or to a pool party, you can’t go wrong with these summer essentials. We’ve got you covered from what you should be wearing to what to put in your hair to maintain those beach waves.

Our number one bikini choice for this summer is Triangl Swimwear. These bikinis are simple, but the perfect pop of color. They are great for accessorizing with any cover up or with Asos’ summer kimonos.

Kimonos are all the rage this summer. You can wear them to the beach with you bikini or throw it over some jean shorts and a simple tank top to dress up your outfit. It’s a simple piece that you must have in your closet this summer to accessorize any outfit.

Now I know finding the perfect summer bag may seem difficult, but I am proud to say after lots and I means lots of research I am 100% obsessed with Hudson+Bleecker’s tote bags. They have literally thought of everything and lined the inside of their totes with water resistant material, which makes it perfect to take your tote anywhere you want without having to worry about ruining it. The Hudson+Bleecker tote is literally mess free, so don’t be afraid to take it wherever you go this summer.

To finish accessorizing your outfit you need some killer sandals this summer. Kayu has designed the cutest sandals that are perfect to rock all summer long. At only $105 you’ll be glad you bought these sandals. To complete your summer look you need Bumble and Bumble’s surf spray, which gives you the perfect beach waves without actually having to go to the beach.

Kanupriya & Kayu Steal the Show on The Carrie Diaries!

There is no debating the most powerful television character in the fashion industry is none other than the enviable Carrie Bradshaw.  So while Sex and the City can only be re-lived in re-runs, we are so grateful to be able to continue to fawn over Carrie through the genius styling of Eric Daman (also beloved for his work on Gossip Girl) in The Carrie Diaries.  AnnaSophia Robb kills it as a young CB, carrying a bright herringbone handmade clutch from Kayu in last week’s episode while Maggie, Bradshaw’s best friend, played by Katie Findlay, channels her inner bohemian in a stunning trio bracelet by Kanupriya.  Stay tuned for more coveted looks each week on one of our new favorite stylish shows.

Naturally Beautiful Accessories for Earth Day

 

 

 

 

Screen Shot 2013-04-22 at 11.53.48 AM

 

One of the biggest statements these days is to make products that are natural and eco-friendly and the CFDA is making sure that the Fashion Industry is keeping up with the trends by putting together a sustainability committee headed by Scott Mackinlay Hahn of Rogan/Loomstate and Melissa Joy Manning with steering members Pamela Love, Maria Cornejo, Victoria Bartlett, and Tina Lutz.  The committee will be responsible for educating, collaborating with, and mentoring designers on ways to implement eco-friendly practices in to their designs and businesses.

Like the CFDA, handbag designer Jamie Lim of Kayu and jewelry designer Kevia Jeffrey-West of Kevia believe in creating accessories that are not only stunning, but are good for the Earth as well.

Kayu, meaning wood in Indonesian, creates elegant and bold clutches, handbags, and small accessories that show off the natural beauty of its materials like Straw, Satin, Jute, and Tinalak.  Her creative and exquisitely executed use of sustainable materials has earned Lim the prestigious Earth Award for Fashion in 2009 and was a finalist for the Eco Domani Fashion Award in 2010.  To further the brand’s mission, Kayu donates a portion of each sale to various healthcare and educational initiatives.

Kevia has long desired to create a completely eco-friendly collection since the brand’s inception and was recently able to do so by producing every piece from 100% recycled metal and wood as well as sustainably harvested and naturally treated wood, but she didn’t stop there.  Her entire business is green – from the factories where the jewelry is produced, the streamlined packaging system that reduces the amount of materials needed, to her offices which use only recyclable items, compost their food, power with renewable energy, and heat with natural gas while purchasing offsets to counter 100% of the greenhouse gas emissions.  Just in time for Earth Day, Kevia was inspired to create a collection inspired by 5 endangered species – the European Stag Beetle, American Burying Beetle, Spotted Owl, Swallowtail Butterfly, and Doloff Spider – which pays homage to their natural beauty and iconography.  15% of net proceeds from this collection will go towards Nature Restoration & Environmental Restoration Projects.

Going green never looked this good!
