our buyers share their favorite trends!

Spring is the season for picnics, bike rides and Seersucker! When our buyers were setting the tone for this season’s all new collection they had two things in mind – fun + color!

One of our favorite classic springtime looks is Seersucker, and it is coming back in an all new way! No longer just for seaside weddings, this traditional fabric is becoming more versatile for everyday wear, accessories and even home decor!

shelly harper is just our type!

Like most women we know, we’re suckers for jewelry. From sweet and delicate to fun and funky, we’re always looking to add a new “favorite” to our collections. That’s why we’re thrilled to be collaborating with local Bay Area-based designer Shelly Harper!

Shelly’s brass pieces are modern, cool and make a statement. As Shelly describes, her jewelry is “meant to empower, flatter and accentuate the true nature of the wearer.” Shelly took the time to sit down with us to let us into her design process. Click Read More to read her interview!


Q: How would you describe your work?

trés chic monogram moment


It’s no secret that we are smitten with green! This stunning bedroom, which we spied on the PB Teen’s Tumblr, with its bold and energizing color combo has us particularly giddy this week.

The vibrant greens are perfectly paired with accents of black and white. The contrasting neutral tones balance the bright colors beautifully. We love the crispness of the sheets and casual chic monogram against the green chinoiserie-covered headboard. Whoever lays their heads  on the those swoon-worthy personalized shams must sleep well at night.

Design Double Take

G type

Along with baseball and football, golf is one of America’s most favorite pass times. Less physical and more strategic, we see it as a great way to bond with your friends and coworkers as you traverse 18 holes.

We spied this ingenious mini-golf course via Taxi  and immediately thought the design was a-hole-in-one! At this put-put course, each hole is designed to look like a letter in the alphabet. That’s right, there are 26 mini courses to play, 8 extra holes of fun to practice the perfect putt!
