    These are my pups. #dogue

    If you haven't been there yet, you have to take a minute and check out the Brand Library in Glendale. Glendale isn't exactly the coolest place on earth, but we got THIS. Katie and I took the pups up there just to check it out, and it turned into a full blown dog photo shoot. They were our reluctant models, and we their willing photographers. Vogue featured some very cute pups in their April issue, so we had the Vogue approved inspiration to just go for it. Enjoy.

  • Eli & Barry S\S 2015 Collection

    This is Katie and Elise. 

    We wanted to revisit a favorite of ours, blogger and jewelry designer for Eli & Barry, Lily.

    This is Lily. 

    I’m writing to you because I feel like you care about the same things that I do: supporting beautiful brands that are ethically produced. I launched my jewelry business over a year ago after touring the Colorado-based factory that would eventually manufacture about half of my jewelry line. My late grandfather originally owned that factory and he acquired it with a specific hope and vision: that jewelry production would never be outsourced to China. But he was wrong. A lot of jewelry manufacturers outsource a part or all of their production. But, with my jewelry line, I wanted to return to his original vision; to have everything produced in house in Colorado Springs, Colorado where the factory is based. 

    Last summer, I started venturing into hand made pieces and incorporating those pieces into my line. The newest collection contains thirteen pieces that I designed and made by hand. I stayed true to my love of simplicity and minimalism while playing with design themes of disruption and the juxtaposition between organic and industrial. I love being able to combine my passion for having pieces produced by my grandfather’s factory, as well as incorporating pieces that I’ve made with my own hands. Eli & Barry jewelry is meant for everyday wear. These pieces become wardrobe favorites and once they grace your earlobe or neck, they don’t often leave. 

     We love her new collection. The pieces, and the story behind them, are both so beautiful! Can't wait to show off our new favorites...

  • Wild Standard

    This is Elise.

    Went on a mini adventure with Linsey from Wild Standard the other day. We recently found out about this gorgeously hidden gem of Glendale, the Brand Library, and knew we had to make the arduous (10 minute) trek to check it out! It was so beautiful.

    We took one of Linsey's beautiful flags along with us! Linsey co-created Wild Standard and designs many of their flags. She has also collaborated with some amazing designers and artists to turn their work into Wild Standard flags! I for one am reeeeally looking forward to their new "LA" flag coming soon, so be looking out for that one! You can follow them on Instagram (@wildstandard) to see all their designs and stay updated on what's to come!

    Also.....and this part is really important....have a great day.

  • What to Wear in a Field

    This is Elise.

    It's a pressing matter, I know. Date night, an interview, we all know what to wear on those kinds of excursions, but in a field? My gosh. 

    Don't worry, we're here for you with our expert styling knowledge. Now you have the tools to be the best you - in a field. Hats, skirts or dresses, (close toed shoes are preferable - learn from our mistakes) and hopefully no snakes (we haven't made that misnake yet). 

    This message brought to you by your neighborhood field.
