Must-Have Monday: Leather Bow Bracelet

Sewbie.com designer Carolina Benoit recently dropped her line of leather bow bracelets and we couldn’t be more in love! Available in an array of colors, we can’t decide which (or how many) to buy. My eye has been on the blue. But then black is classic and classy. I also heart the way it’s styled in aqua. The more the merrier, right?

Obsession: Lisa Frank

This fixation of all things old school are coming at me full force these past couple months. So bear with me. As a kid, I was so head over the heels in love with stickers and Lisa Frank was like the Holy Grail of stickerdom. I know I’m late on this since Urban Outfitters jumped on the resale of Lisa Frank last summer but I can’t help but feel colorful butterflies knowing this childhood joy is a source of inspiration for plenty of looks out right now – from bright hues to bold graphics to rainbow cheetah print to food and cat icons. I mean, if you were a kid during the 80’s and 90’s, how could you NOT be inspired by the outrageously fun stationary supplies? I give it up to you Ms. Lisa Frank, you were ahead of the game over 20 years ago.

Flashback Friday: Suede. Red. Fringe.

Sure – summer is practically right around the corner but when a jacket is awesome, it’s awesome no matter what the season, right? Right. Sewbie.com vintager Alex & Afton recently listed this vintage gem. It’s red. It’s suede. It has fringe. Where would we wear it? No clue but we’d probably wear it with a tight black dress similar to the one here and some equally bold gold jewelry.

The Meadowlands Flea Market

It was a scorching 88 degrees in Jersey on Saturday and despite the heat I had a sudden hankering to go to a flea market. I’m on this mission to find vintage necklaces that I can take apart to make a whole “new” piece (more on that later). While I didn’t find any necklaces for my project, I did snag a vintage ring for $1.00 and got to see a few cool things that took me back. Waaaay back.
