Falconwright


If you aren't already familiar with Falconwright, let us be the first to introduce you!  Sandi and Danielle are the creative masterminds behind Falconwright - two rad friends who came together to make quirky and crazy screen prints for every day leather bags and clutches.  

If you have ever stepped foot in our storefront or perused our site, it is very apparent that we are quite obsessed... So much so that we based an entire lookbook around their rad eyeball print bags.




























I love the concept of a simple zipper pouch bag with bold colors and loud, original designs.  These gals have got it figured out!  Can't wait to see what they come up with next :)  You should definitely take a peek at their ridiculously cute site while you're at it!

Quay Sunnies

So I hate to admit it but I love knowing whats going on in Hollywood now and again. I read the tabloids from the corner of my eye when I check out at the grocery store. Even worse, if the headlines are juicy enough I can't help but buy them. I have also endlessly searched for a 'SONO MAMA' Philip Lim sweater on eBay just because Beyonce wore it (once).  And I have been known to veg out watching Mob Wives or any wives show VH1 throws my way for that matter - embarrassing I know.

Anyway, my newest celebrity obsession is who's wearing Quay sunnies because we just started carrying them at the shop. All mega babes from Cara Delevingne to MIA to Iggy Azalea. Oh and of course Gwen and Beyonce are rockin' them, always ahead of the curve those two.  Which pair do you have to have?

Minimal Prints

I have never considered myself to be an artist but much more of a doodler. Along the way I have just sort of developed an appreciation simple designs and patterns. Good thing -  because I have been noticing a lot of minimal prints from home wares to clothing that are inspired by doodle! It reminded me of a blog post by designer Lauren Winter from a while back. She gives tutorials that super original and in this one she breaks down the process of making your own prints at home. It's a great way to give old basics a revamp - time for a DIY party!  Here are some images from Lauren's blog, you can get the full tutorial on Drifter and the Gypsy

Tell us what you are into right now - we are always looking for inspiration!

Bringing the Outdoors In

Now that the summer is on it's way I can't seem to stop buying plants! I just love bringing nature inside and I'm really inspired by all of these photos - I love to put plants anywhere and everywhere! Yo is picking up more home wares including the amazing beechwood planters by Wind & Willow pictured below $8- $24 (in store only).
