Deer Valley antler damask

Get your Deer Valley Antler Damask fabric before it’s sold out on fabric.com. We really like this celadon colorway pictured above, but it also comes in other colors. The fabric is great for curtains, throw pillows or even a table runner. The cute fabrics always sell out fast on the site, hurry!

Dressing for Summer weather

As the weather gets warmer, we sometimes feel our selection in warm-weather clothing is limited. We suggest keeping your outfits simple and elegant like Sienna Miller above wearing a Yoana Baraschi sundress while on the streets. At the store our current favorites are the Wren Navy Shorts with the Wren Inkblot Tee. We also heart the Twinkle Ariel Tank with skinny jeans. Ladies, for the season, the more distressed the better; and while we’re on denim, the lighter the wash, the better as well!
For footwear try flat sandals or ballet flats. Wedge sandals also go very well with summer attire. Wedges in tan leather and a statement bag can finish the outfit.
Linen trousers or a great tulip skirt with a summer blouse make up a work-appropriate outfit. If you’d like to be more creative, a sweet sundress with a cotton cardigan will also keep you cool in the office. To keep looking neat, avoid shorts and tennies and cotton shelf-bra tank tops worn by themselves. We hope you enjoy the weather and have a wonderful week!

Shop improvements

This week we worked a little on our wrap counter. We added the paper we bought from the Maker Faire and then protected it with a piece of glass, and are very happy with the results!
Stay tuned for more shop improvements and have a wonderful weekend!

Goodies for the shop

Yesterday we did a little shopping for the store. The picture above shows our denim selection from Found. The popular cuts for the season are the boyfriend, straight, skinny and leggings. Look for the new styles to arrive in the store in August and September. We also had a great time visiting our friends from Twinkle, Anna Sui and Paul & Joe Sister!

Gwyneth Paltrow in Grey Ant Denim

For Spring and Summer we brought in a pair of Grey Ant Denim Jeans, and over the weekend while reading GOOP we spotted Gwyneth Paltrow in the same pair. We love how she wears them hemmed exactly to the ground with a cute black jacket. If you’re setting your sights on Fall, these jeans can definitely take you through the season. Grey Ant Plain Front Bell Jeans (187) available at Josef Boutique, Menlo Park, CA.

Nohohon-Zoku

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tsoNqeMZtm0]
Many of our customers have inquired about our Nohohon-Zoku, so we wanted to let you know what they’re called and where to find them. Nohohon-Zoku are fist-sized bobble head toys manufactured by the Japanese company Tomy. These ones are solar-powered. It is said that the purpose of the figurines is to relieve their owners of stress. We found a web site that sells them, however, we do not take responsibility for your orders, and we urge you to do your research before you buy. We hope this makes it a little easier for your to track them down. Happy hunting!

A place to rest

The weather’s been so nice this week that we thought about getting some kind of outdoor seating for the front of the store. We’re really liking these cute Tiki Stools. We did consider traditional benches, however, the pop of color would really brighten things up. Bench or stools? The best part about the stools is their weight. There wouldn’t be a problem carrying them in at night, and their modern shape is a little offbeat. We like different. Have a great weekend and a wonderful Father’s Day!

Yoana Barschi Summer infusion!

Boho Nomad peasant top

Boho Nomad lounge dress

Today we got in some beautiful Yoana Baraschi pieces. We just unpacked them and couldn’t wait to share them with you! We’d pair the top with either blue or white denim for those hot summer days. Also, you can wear it as a coverup to the beach.
We’re also really enjoying the dress. It’s not something we’d gravitate to normally, but it’s fantastic with flats or flip flops and a cute cardigan – the ultimate no-fuss summer outfit!
