• Loly in the Sky

    We are so excited to announce a new line of shoes we are now carrying: Loly in the Sky. Designed and manufactured in Mexico City by talented shoe designer and all-around cutie, Lorena Vasquez, these flats add a little fun and wonder to your everyday wardrobe!

     

    Inspired by all things lovely, feminine and quirky, the line of shoes are made from natural materials handpicked in Mexico and lovingly screen-printed with various cute designs. What I love most about the shoes is how they are light as a feather making them a perfect travel shoe- either for day-to-day or faraway journeys. 

    We picked four styles that we thought were perfect for fall and have a range of sizes available! I'm already planning all the cute fall outfits I'm going to wear with each of these pairs!

  • Be a Deer

    When I was 15 I had a complete obsession with Audrey Hepburn. I has just gone on exchange to Paris and was starting to get into fashion and then my sister mentioned Breakfast at Tiffany's. I'll always remember how it first came up, she was talking about the cat in the movie and how Holly Golightly had never given it a proper name, just referred to it as Cat. Well being the feline freak I am I instantly knew I had to see the film and felt an instant bond to this Holly character. It wasn't until my Audrey obsession became more serious and I started reading about her life that I discovered her love of all types of animals. The story that always stuck out to me about Ms. Hepburn was her pet fawn, Ip. 

    In 1959 Audrey made a movie called Green Mansions where she played a "forest-dwelling girl". This nymph-like character she was supposed to be was always surrounded by nature and animals so the animal trainer on set had her take the film's little deer home with her so it would be comftorable around her. The result was the sweetest human-animal love affair and was lovingly captured by Audrey's close friend and photographer, Bob Willoughby.

    I've always loved Audrey Hepburn for her effortless glamour, youthful spirit and, as these images prove, her gentle soul.
