Thiri and I recently returned from another L.A. shopping trip where we picked out pounds upon pounds of vintage clothing just for you! We found some really super pieces, everything from cool men’s snap westerns, adorable 80s sun dresses, groovy 70s polyester, fun vintage leather purses, 60s cocktail minis and so much more!

So as I write this, we are getting it out on the shelves, you just have to come by 2022 Magazine Street to check it out!

Can’t wait to see you,

Lauren + Thiri

Picks for August!

Aug 2, 2011 by in Fashion Comments Off on Picks for August!

I feel like a broken record over here because again it’s all about keepin’ cool in this HOT weather! And if you’re hanging with us in New Orleans, you know it’s especially hard to beat the heat this summer. So Thiri and I selected our August favorites with that in mind.

For the gentlemen!

The Country Time shirt is a classic take on vintage favorite. Short sleeves and 100% cotton to keep you cool.

We went with another summer time classic for the men, the Simple flippee. The Bio-D flippee is the ultimate eco-friendly flip flop. This Vegan shoe has a foot form made from post-consumer recycled paper and the sole is biodegradable! The sole is made of recycled and natural rubber with Eco-Pure additive which helps the sole biodegrade in a landfill. Awesome, right?!

 

For the ladies!

The Squid top is perfect to be dressed up or down. Tuck it into a high waist cotton body-con skirt and add some killer heels for a night time look or throw it on with a pair of cut-offs and some gladiator sandals for day. I think it’s the stud detailing that allows it to go both ways.

 

We also thought it would be fun to feature some jewelry that’s great for hot sticky weather. The paper bead jewelry is made by Ember Arts, a company that partners with women in Uganda to make hand rolled beads out of recycled paper. Their jewelry is great for summer because of it’s weight. When it’s a million degrees outside you don’t want 12 pounds of jewelry hanging from around your neck and these beads are lighter than air! And don’t worry, they are specially coated so they won’t fall apart on extra hot days.

 

So come check out all the fun picks online or in-store and keep having a great Summer!
