I'm so glad Angela reminded me about these. Great boots huh? Welllll...they're actually non slip fabric bands that dress up your boots. Designers Erica and Tamar handcraft these cute as ever bands to be adjustable for any style boots. I love that one small item can create so many different looks. Check out The 2 Bandits here.
Andrea blogged Leigh & Luca some time ago and I immediately saved them to my favorites. I love the fresh hues and bold prints. Leigh & Luca is a small collection of scarves from designers and friends Gillian Leigh and Susann Luca. Aside from the gorgeous colors, I adore that these ladies have designed/redesigned just one item and I'm still captivated. The cute little lady helps too!
I know the tote bag is one of the simplest constructions; but it seems with the new appreciation for the tote comes an appreciation for accessories without the bell & whistles. All the better to highlight brands like Pravina Studio that are attentive to craftsmanship and simple details. Handmade in Madison, Wisconsin these bags are beautifully constructed...I love the limited edition Lina made from antique feedsack textiles. Check it out here.
Costume designer Miss KK creates these beautiful hand painted dresses and dramatic feather necklaces. Love the delicate chains with the big, bold feathers. I think I'm going to have to add one of these to my collection, check out Miss KK here or here.
I can't find much on the designer but I just had to tell you guys about this handbag line I stumbled upon. Simple and chic each Dutchy bag features "commuter girl" style compartments for wallets, keys, cell phones.. you name it. The best features though? Prices. Already very well priced, I happened upon the ultimate sale. That glam wallet above is a sweet $45. Check out Dutchy here.
Happy New Year! What better way to start than with this eco friendly collection by Meadow. This Miami and Costa Rica based designer uses hemp, bamboo, and organic cotton in her collection which is produced locally in Miami. If you've been looking for eco bathing suits, the Spring 2008 collection included some so look out for summer 09. Check out Meadow here and shop here.
