You can love these products even more knowing that they’re all natural, organic and sustainably grown. They support the environment as much as they support indulging yourself with heavenly aromas. 

Come indulge yourself the next time you stop in and try the lotion, roll on parfume, or diffuser for the ultimate in organic beauty!

| Brand Spotlight | Diane Von Furstenberg
For those of you who follow us on Facebook/ Twitter / Instagram or have visited the shop recently, you know that we are now carrying Diane Von Furstenberg. For those of you who haven’t been following us, FYI, we carry DVF! 
Now that you’re fully aware that we carry DVF, we wanted to explain why. It’s actually pretty simple. It’s the figure-hugging, highlights-all-of-a-women’s best features, staple of every girl’s closet, DVF jersey wrap dress.
The DVF wrap dress is the epitome of effortless elegance and empowerment, which is probably why two years after Diane designed the dress in 1974, she sold millions of dresses and was featured on the cover of Newsweek. What’s even more impressive is that after a brief hiatus in fashion, Diane reintroduced the wrap dress in 1997 to the next generation of women and has never looked back since.
Besides the wrap dress, DVF is known for their quality fabric and flattering cuts on women, and their use of color and pattern are next to none. The DVF look has been cultivated by Diana for years and it’s the perfect combination of the conservative and feminine feel of the 1940’s with a touch of 1970’s hippie chic.
We’re lucky to carry DVF at the store and hope you come by and grab your little piece of history too!

| What to Wear | On the Pier 

One of our favorite things to do here in the South Bay when it starts to feel like summer is to spend the weekend having seafood by the water and walking the pier. The comfort and nostalgia of it makes us crave this season year round…. and wish we still cruised around by skateboard!

That’s why this outfit is the perfect combination of threads to wear when soaking up some California sun, and remembering the good times! 

- Cath Kidston floral bag is big enough to hold all your beach day essentials and the wax coating ensures that they’re safe from the elements. (We’re one of the few stores that carry AUTHORIZED Cath Kidston USA bags!

- CDG X Converse Jack Purcells are the epitome of summertime fun! The playful CDG heart has youthful reminiscence, while still keeping ultra cool.  

- Shwood wooden shades are the pair that you can’t live without! Hand crafted in OR, these sunglasses are sturdy and stylish! They also know a thing or two about preserving our skateboarding memories- Check out this video where they turn broken decks into sunglasses!  

- Topshop floral, front-knot blouse is the perfect 90s throw back style! Plus the sleeveless cut makes it ideal for those hot summer days. 

- Topshop high waisted shorts are the cherry on top of this nostalgic summertime outfit. Fitted and oh-so-comfortable, they’re a staple to your wardrobe this season! 

All items are available now in store. Come shop with us, and we’ll see you on the pier!
