We've got some new friends

I decided to skip the last trade show in New York, boy am I glad that I did.  It forced me to look for some new designers.  Let me introduce you to Kendra Renee.  I have to admit that I have been coveting her work for awhile.  I've seen it on a few of our customers and have always admired the simple but edgy styling.  Her pieces will be in the store in the next week or so.

I also added a line called Waxing Poetic.  It's a "build your own" concept.  We have a variety of chains and charms that you can use to create your own personalized piece.

What's in your bag?

This is the bag that I've been carrying lately, the Victoria by Hobo.  I originally intended it to be my gym bag but since it is so practical, it has worked it's way into my daily life.  The nylon doesn't show any dirt or wear.  Perfect for me because I tend to just chuck it on the floor.  I also love the wide leather straps - no digging into the shoulders and they stay put.  So what's in my bag?
It varies day to day but today I have my giant wood shoes, snacks (apple and Luna bar), my Iphone (never without that), sunglasses (won't be needing those today), my Hobo Mavis clutch, and I always have a camera.  What's in your bag?

Beach blankets baby

The warm weather is here!  Now if only we could get two sunny days in a row, we could all enjoy a little beach time.  This is a wrap from Thomas Paul that I took with me on my recent trip to Miami.  It's so versatile - beach blanket, sarong, shawl, wall hanging, get the idea.  We have a lot of great prints to choose from:  nautical flags, tall ships, elephants, giraffe, swallows, cheetah...
