Seychelles In Love

Last spring, our very own Laura Willison threw her dream wedding in her parent's backyard in rural Wisconsin. She dressed her bridesmaids in Seychelles to complete the look. We asked Laura to share her wedding inspiration and here's what she said:

"We wanted our wedding to be really personal, so my focus was less on creating a traditional wedding and more of planning a really great, intimate dinner party. It was Gatsby-esque in the sense that we had it black tie but held it in my parent’s backyard and a farmhouse/garden tent. There was something appealing about being all dressed up and standing in the grass.

My inspiration was vintage/bespoke. We didn’t really have colors but if I had to choose they were gray and cream. I filled the party with items we have in our house like an old gramophone, vintage frames, a chandelier, a mirror, birdcages and a vintage desk for our sign-in book. We had a projector playing Somewhere in Time, Great Gatsby and Say Anything on the outdoor bar tent wall and our flowers were placed in mismatched ball jars, green depression glass and white hobnail vases and served as the centerpieces. We had our cake on an antique sideboard and our entire wedding party ate off of mismatched vintage china I had collected from Etsy. We gave away vintage seed packets filled with geraniums, dahlias and amaryllis and had the entire playlist from start to finish (our DJ hated us) picked out with only music that has meaning to us as a couple.

Seychelles added the perfect touch of modern vintage. The shoes were glamorous and comfortable and served as the perfect addition to my bridesmaids closets."

Beach bound.

The weather is warming up and the beach is calling. Make sure you are prepared with some amazing summer "must have" staples.

That Girl...

Jennifer was so modest when we approached her about her adorable retro-looking outfit. She exclaimed "I just got off work!" Well, we think she looked gorgeous, even after a hard day's work.

her favorite places to shop: Vintage shops in upstate New York and Brooklyn boutiques like

her personal style, in her own words: I'm really inspired by the 1960s and 1970s, when clothing was more free. I love folksy and Western looks, but always love classic shapes.

Fridays featured blog: Darling Dexter

After having the pleasure of meeting adorable fashion designer and photographer, Mrs.Whitney Deal, at our garden party we discovered her even more adorable blog.  Through Darling Dexter she shares her projects, inspirations, designs and beautiful photographs. We think she is just lovely.

That Girl...

Next up in our series of super fab New York ladies is Stephanie. We spotted her across the room and loved the combo of retro maxi length skirt with tough leather motorcycle jacket.


who: Stephanie

why we love her: We spotted her from across the room and she was just exuding effortless cool. This girl really knows how to put an outfit together.

her favorite item of clothing: This skirt, picked up for $5 at a vintage store. A total steal.

where she finds inspiration: Flipping through magazines and also seeing what musicians are wearing. Music is really inspiring.

her personal style, in her words: Sporadic and all over the place. I usually wear all black, you happened to catch me on a day where I threw in some color to mix it up!

That Girl...

We just love traveling the country and getting a chance to meet different girls with incredible style. While in NYC we had the chance to catch up with some superbly stylish ladies and want to take the next few days to showcase their individual looks. Without further ado...


who: Claire

why we love her: she's not only adorable and stylish, but is smart, too. She's studying fashion at The New School and writes a blog, De Lune.

what she's wearing: Vintage cream shorts, a James Perse button-down shirt, Dolce & Gabbana body suit, and vintage bag and belt. Everything is thrifted!

her favorite places to shop: Thrift shops and vintage stores, and a lot of online shopping.

her personal style, in her words: Contrast. I like to play with mixing masculine and feminine and preppy and edgy.

Ode to Alexander

Some things are worth being a tourist for. Such was the case for Andrew Bolton's new Metropolitan Museum of Art project, Alexander McQueen . Savage Beauty.

The cast and crew from Seychelles went last week while in NYC and it was, in one word - amazing. Andrew's curation itself was something to discuss over a couple glasses of coffee or wine (whichever you prefer).
The genius, who was Alexander McQueen was dark, tortured, eccentric and supremely talented. He left the earth too early.

Savage Beauty is a masterpiece. In layman's terms, if you're in NYC, you MUST go.

smile, darlings!

When we first started planning the Garden Party and pop-up shop, we just knew we had to make Smilebooth a part of it. We've seen them pop up at all the coolest events in LA and around the blog world, so naturally we wanted them to help make our event special, too. Much to our delight (but no surprise) all the folks at Smilebooth are uber cool and awesome to work with. Need evidence? Look at how much fun we all had!

To view all the photos from the evening, download high-res files or order prints, stop in over here.

In a Mustard State of Mind.


While we were in NYC we noticed our very own Hoot heels on quite a few ladies and not to be bold, but they looked amazing!! 

We decided to test drive them ourselves and we came to this conclusion - 

Perfect for Summer, comfortable, great heel height and a must have for every girl's closet!! 

Get yours and let us know what you think!!

Happy Happy Audrey.

Audrey Hepburn would have been 82 today. She was not only a fashion icon but a pioneer (of sorts) for women in film.

She was beautiful, smart and left us with a catalog of witty famous quotes.

"As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others."

"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone." 

Wish we could have given her shoes to dance around in.

la femme du jour

Frida Kahlo is an iconoclast known for abandoning traditional expectations and forging her own path. Never a wallflower, Frida's wardrobe matched her personality with bold colors and outrageous accessories that pay homage to her culture and heritage. Frida continues to make her mark on the fashion world today, as we've seen in this crop of photo shoots inspired by the unforgettable artist.

trend spotting: flared denim

Some of us around the office live in and love our wide leg jeans, others of us are just getting around to rocking the new looks we've been admiring around the blog world. Either way, it's time to give your skinnies a break and branch out. Plus, what better way to complement your favorite Seychelles wedges and wood-bottomed platforms?
