Red Hot.

Red & Black.

Our TYPEWRITER wedges are one of our new featured styles and so many of you have let us know just how much you love them! To celebrate that (and so much more) we paired them with a holiday-inspired outfit perfect for this Christmas weekend and whatever you have in store for New Years. 

Can you believe we're almost closing the 2011 chapter! Cheers to time spent with family, a day or two of rest and a new clean slate come 2012. 

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
Love, Seychelles xx

The Vamoose.

The Vamoose is an amazing handmade jewelry collection from the UK designed by Kathryn Blackmore. She garners her inspiration from various places around Europe and the world which results in each piece telling it's own story. 

Her work has been featured on many of our favorite style blogs and now we know where to go next time we're in the need of amazing hand crafted accessories. (she ships worldwide, sometimes even for free!) Get to know her.

Baking 101.

(Courtesy of FORTY SIXTH at GRACE)


Every year when the holidays come around, we get in the mood for baking. Whether it be cookies, or scrumptious pies; we always have our expectations set high. 

What we fail to remember is, we're not blessed with the ability to throw a couple things together and create a masterpiece; we need guidance and A LOT of it. 

So we collected amazing sounding recipes, taken from the always yummy Smitten Kitchen and we're looking forward to trying our hand at some over the holiday break. We'll keep you posted with how it goes. (fingers crossed)

spotted around the office

Yesterday model and makeup artist Megan Porschen stopped by our office for a visit. She was dressed to perfection in this modern bohemian look, looking cozy and layered for a California winter. We love the way Megan wears our "Stakeout" boots. She says they're the perfect boots and she wears them with everything! What do you think?

Seychelles in Real Life.

We love seeing our shoes make it into to the blogosphere! It's always interesting to see how they look styled out and strolling the streets, so keep it up and don't be shy about sending more photos our way. 

Happy Weekend!

A Good Gift

Happy Holidays! If you are like me, you are probably scrambling for gift ideas and preparing for the holidays. One of my favorite gifts to give and receive are cookbooks! There is something really special to me about sharing food and the way you eat with others. This is the kind of gift that is thoughtful, practical, and brings the person joy throughout the year when they use your gift!

So in the spirit of the holidays, here are some cookbooks that I think would make great gifts this season!

1. The Mozza Cookbook
2. I Know How To Cook
3. Off The Menu
4. Momofuku Milk Bar
5. The Family Meal
6. Noma

Winter Gift Guide.

Anthology 2011 Holiday Guide Preview from tiger in a jar on Vimeo.

We've been obsessed with Matt & Julie Walker, the husband and wife team and creative geniuses behind TIGER IN A JAR for almost a year now. Like all healthy relationships, (ahem obsessions) we try and let a little time go by in between check-ins so we're pleasantly surprised at what newness they have created for us to swoon over. 

Well....they've done it again. A perfectly made, beautifully shot, gift guide filled with treasures and treats one can create and make for their loved ones DIY style. This literally could not be more us!! 

Matt and Julie, we raise our cider and tip our knit caps to you. We can't wait to see what 2012 brings.

Ode to Burgundy.

We're definitely in a festive mood as of late and to help continue that along, we decided to build a look featuring one of our "in love with at the moment" colors, Burgundy. 

To be specfic, Burgundy is a rich, blue under-toned red, works back with everything and is the perfect color to sustain you through the dreary weather months of Winter. Don't you agree?

What helps keep you in the holiday spirit?

Holly's Holiday Inspiration

Once Thanksgiving is over, it's already time to start planning for the holidays. I've been taking a peek around online to find the perfect holiday outfit, and found these pieces that would transition perfectly from Holiday Shopping to Holiday Party! Since I'm based in Los Angeles we can get away with shorts and dresses in the winter, but these pieces would also look great layered with tights and a chic coat! You can bet I'll be pairing some of my favorite Seychelles shoes with my outfits this season!
