Boutique: E. Tittlemouse & Co.

E. Tittlemouse & Co.

The recent migration of new residents flocking to Jersey City has brought lots of interesting developments to the city. Often dubbed “the 6th borough”, my hometown is steadily coming out of its shadow of the NYC limelight. Among these sprouting local establishments is E. Tittlemouse & Co. and it has easily become one of my new favorite boutiques offering up thrifted designer pieces, carefully curated by Napoleon, the dapperest nice guy you’ll ever meet.

Lately

This pretty much sums up my moods as of late, presented neatly in a four cell grid. Mixed thoughts and emotions are all over the place. Totally not intentional when I took these, it’s kind of crazy how things manifest themselves and are realized in hindsight. I guess you really can’t hide your true feelings.

Photo BoothIf you’ve ever been to an event with a photo booth, you’ll know that most photo booth vendors kinda suck – bad lighting, cheesy backgrounds, corny props, etc. The Bosco is, by far, my favorite. Flattering lighting and simple white. They even turn your four images into a GIF: http://www.thebos.co/p/EDH7DX. Super fun!

 

Typhoon Haiyan Relief Collection by NUDA

The devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines hits us hard over here at Sewbie HQ. As Filipino Americans, our hearts are heavy but the outpouring of love and help from all around us is beautiful. One of these generous souls is our very own Sewbie jewelry designer, NUDA who has launched a collection especially for relief efforts.

Typhoon Relief Collection

NUDA is known for her use of mixed metals, gems, leather, and other natural materials. Her pieces are earthy, boho, eclectic with edgy twists and vintage influence.

ALL  profits from sales will be donated to help individuals and families in current devastation via directrelief.org. Their statement is 100% of contributions designated for “Typhoon Haiyan Relief” will be used solely for relief and recovery efforts related to the typhoon.

Each item is priced at $15.00 and is now available for purchase at sewbie.com.

LA, LA

Beverly Hills

A while back I traveled to LA for work and while it was mostly business, a few of us made the best of it and tried to get out of the hotel and conference room every chance we could get before our heads exploded. It wasn’t easy as it was a jam packed weekend, hence the mirror selfies below to keep me entertained.

Bathroom

Thinking of starting a running theme of bathroom selfies titled #toiletseries.

Hair selfie

Some days the hair just has a mind of its own.

The Beverly Hilton

This is seriously what kept me occupied while stuck in a conference for 8 hours. However, it has been said that doodling actually enhances concentration and promotes creativity during brainstorm sessions. I BELIEVE IT.

See ya again soon LA. I’ll be back for more Porto’s goodies & the Rose Bowl.

Nuda Designs posted the above pic on Instagram as a little sneak peek of what’s coming soon to Sewbie.com! Exclusively designed for us, the lovely Gale – metalsmith extraordinaire – works with our favorite materials: leather, mixed metals, stones, and crystals. She does custom pieces too – her bridal pieces are incredibly romantic and dreamy. I’ve already reached out to her about a custom ring…SO excited. We’re hoping to get a little one-on-one time with her soon. More on that later. Stay tuned!
