Odds & Ends

Hello all, I am sorry that this has been a light posting month. I have been buried under a pile of stress in preparation for Ramey Rhodes Spring collection and Savannah Fashion Week debut. But here is an update on some of the projects I've been working on. Please join us at one of our upcoming trunk shows; we are hitting up some of my favorite places on Earth and the beautiful and talented Gabe of Gabrielle Jewelry is coming with! I just added some new clutches to the Shop and our super squee Giraffe t-shirts are in stock! The clutches are made not just in the USA but right here in Raleigh. The tees are also made in the US and printed in Raleigh as well and show our love for NC. YAY for Raleigh and America. I hope you all have a beautiful and joyful Easter!

Add some whimsy to the most mundane of household items!


Turkish Delight

Want. Part towel, part blanket; turkish towels are a grand addition to your bathing or snuggling situation. They're ultra absorbent but are great as throws or scarves too! I love these colors. I want to eat them. This one is actually Turkish (as in, from Turkey), but click here for my favorite domestic brand!

On My List: Bissell & Blaise

Bissel & Blaise Chevron Ring
Bissell & Blaise Deco Chevron Ring
I was put on to Bissell & Blaise at a dinner with some family friends and I couldn't wait to share! This gorgeous fine jewelry line was launched in 2011 by two friends and native Southerners, Lindsay Bissell and Anna Blaise Dunbar. Their love of art deco design is apparent; I feel like their pieces are simultaneously vintage and modern. They also do custom! I really feel strong emotions towards the chevron ring (above). It's all gorgeous and really unique AND it's made in NYC. #USA Check out the full collection here. Can't wait to see what they do next!

Spring Green

Maison Madeleine Crossbody In Bright Green Clare V
Maison Madeleine Crossbody

YAY! Spring Green and it's not pollen! This bag fills many of my favorite handbag requirements: it's crossbody, it's big enough for my stuff, has pockets and it is an adorable color. OH! And it has a tassel. Love tassels. The Maison Madeleine bag from Clare V is a top contender for new bag of the season. Just in time for St. Patty's-luck of the Irish ladies! 
(I'm also digging the Loeffler Randall Marmy scalloped sandals they are showing it with below)
