Happy Holidays!

Our Christmas tree has typically been our potted pine tree.Whether small cuttings, a whole branch, or in a nice pot,  I love how it's showcased in many ways in the home for the holidays. What's great about a potted tree is that after all the festivities for the season,you get to enjoy it in your home for all seasons.

Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas! Peace, love and all the blessings to all of you. Happy Holidays!

Perfect Toppings for the Holiday Party Ensemble

Happy Friday!Given the holiday rush of shopping,what I love about this season are of course the gatherings (along with the yummy sweets), whether they're big parties or the small intimate get together with family and friends. Well if you're off to a grand soiree, I'm loving these black and white outfits (my favorite color combo this season!) as worn by Sarah Yates. And lovin' how she topped of both outfits with the right clutch and of course, the arm candy with our stunning and sleek Kristen Elspeth cuff. And what about those shoes?

Whether bracelets, earrings or necklaces, top off of your holiday outfit with some of our gorgeous selection of jewelry: Trois Petits Points Enameled Lockets / Sculptural pieces by Laura Lombardi / Modern striking cuffs and rings by Young Frankk / Elegant bracelet byVictoria Bekerman/ Minimalist earrings by Kristen Elspeth and Aoko Su.

Fashion Love: Sloe


I've been eying the modern well-crafted designs by Berlin-based label Sloe for awhile now. Launched in 2012 by designer Antonia Sigmund and art director Matthias Last, Sloe is a collection of effortless clothing, accessories and bags that feature modern simplicity and clean silhouettes to emphasize the quality materials used in their creations. Drawn to dark colors and simple tailoring, I want to reach for their coats and that timeless hybrid cardigan since it has been cold here in Southern Cal. Although I shouldn't complain since it's still not as extreme compared to the rest of the country. And did I mention their versatile bags? Featuring gorgeous leather and multiple wearing options, it is really made for the city nomad on the me.

"SLOE´s philosophy: top quality materials, handmade products and timeless, simple design. Thanks to the long-term availability of its products, the label is beyond the transience of fashion. SLOE combines elegance with casualness, extravagance with naturalness. SLOE is cool but not eccentric, striking without being intrusive."

Textile Love: Limited Edition Scarves from Osei-Duro


We love textiles and have been drawn to graphic prints and patterns from some of our favorite labels. So we couldn't be more excited to present our latest collaboration with Osei-Duro. Curently based out of Los Angeles and Ghana, this line of clothing and accessories was created by Maryanne Mathias and Molly Keogh to create socially responsible and sustainable clothing that encourages international/intercultural cooperation. Featuring their signature basket print, they've created limited edition scarves for exclusive to our shop. Add a lovely dose of pattern to any ensemble with this seasonless and versatile piece.

New Ceramics from Natania Hume


I love coffee and tea so I've been looking to add the perfect mug to add to our shop. I've discovered the one that combines the rustic minimalist aesthetic (which I love!) with just the right texture and feel. So excited to add the beautiful ceramics from Natania Hume of Slow Studio. She not only creates such timeless ceramics but actually teaches ceramic and art in Massachusetts. We also have her lovely sugar bowl and creamer set. They're ideal gifts for the home this holiday season.
