Spring brings spring cleaning. Spring cleaning brings more closet space. More closet space brings more room for beautiful clothes... Right? Right. So let's brighten up that extra space with vividly vivacious colors and let's be vividly vivacious!

Hm. Spring cleaning isn't so bad after all. ♥

For Japan With Love

We're all heartbroken by the disaster in Japan. To all of our friends, family, colleagues, and coworkers in Japan, we wish you all well and pray for a speedy recovery. We pledged what we could to ShelterBox. We pray all donations will bring hope to those that were affected, and to let them know the world is watching and praying for them. Please participate in a day of silence for the victims of Japan.

Images are from boston

The lovely ladies from UtterlyEngaged and Ever Ours have recently launched a fundraiser to help the victims of Japan via Shelter Box

ShelterBox was one of THE first organizations asked by Japan to help and were on hand on the Saturday after the quake. Each large, green ShelterBox is tailored to a disaster but typically contains a disaster relief tent for an extended family, blankets, water storage and purification equipment, cooking utensils, a stove, a basic tool kit, a children’s activity pack and other vital items.

How to Wear a Bandeau

In response to our lacey comfort bandeau in cream and gray, we've had a few people ask, "What IS that?" We say, "It's a fabulous layering piece!"

They can be worn with anything low cut or loose fitting. For those of you who grabbed our "freshly cut flowers for you romper," a bandeau will be perfect with it! To give a few other examples, a bandeau will look cute with our "need a little shine cargo dress," "love is a mystery flowy top," and "delicate daisies sheer top."


We hope this helps solve the bandeau mystery! We'd love to hear how you plan on styling it. ♥
