Sometimes fashion can be war! –

Camouflage is the use of any combination of materials, coloration or illumination for concealment, either by making animals or objects hard to see (crypsis), or by disguising them as something else (mimesis).

We believe in making love not war, but when it comes to fashion anything goes! This season the camouflage that was once used to keep our troops concealed is now front and center!  So whether you wear it on your head, shoulders, knees or toes, camouflage is sure to get you noticed this season!  Available at every price point from splurge to steal, check out some of our favorite camo goods.

Ombre: The new black

OMBRÉ: having colors or tones that shade into each other —used especially of fabrics in which the color is graduated from light to dark — ombré noun

If you accidentally (or purposefully) missed out on the Ombré hair trend, you need not worry. Ombré, also known as “dip-dyed” isn’t just for hair anymore, and this spring it’s a trend that can be seen everywhere… food, home accessories, and all over the runway!

We were so taken by this delightfully refreshing color palette that you will see a great selection of Ombré accessories and home goods in the shop over the coming months. Check out some of our favorite Ombré examples below.
Have a favorite… be sure to leave a comment… we always love a good conversation!!! Happy January!

Trend Spotting: Je T’aime Burlap

Hessian /ˈhɛsi.ən/, or burlap in the US and Canada, is a woven fabric usually made from skin of the jute plant or sisal fibres, or may be combined with other vegetable fibres to make rope, nets, and similar products.

Hessian, a dense woven fabric, has been historically produced as a coarse fabric, but more recently it is being used in a refined state known simply as jute as an eco-friendly material for bags, rugs, and other products.

The name “burlap” appears to be of unknown origin, although the word could mean “coarse piece of cloth”.   The name “hessian” is attributed to the use of the fabric, initially, as part of the uniform of soldiers from the German state of Hessewho were called “Hessians”.

This season Burlap is not just for rugs and potato sacks anymore…today burlap adorns our tables, decorates our trees, covers our feet, and even drapes effortlessly over our bodies! What a long way this natural coarse fibre has come! Check out some of our favorite burlap products this season…and be sure to share your favorites with us by posting in our comment section or on our Facebook page! We’d LOVE to hear from you!
