We’re getting ourselves over to France (my fiancé’s motherland) with just a few days to spare before we do this thing, so I’m trying to force myself to... Read More

Workout Playlist

Mondays and exercise: both can be difficult to face (for us, anyways), both can be made considerably easier with the perfect soundtrack. Brilliant DJ duo Chances with Wolves (out of East Village Radio) always come through with incredible mixes to guide us through the workweek. Since we already play them incessantly in the shop, we got pretty excited when we heard they just released a mix for runners on MixCloud. Kenan Juska of Chances is an avid runner himself, and sets the perfect tempo with two whopping hours of energetic, mood-lifting cuts from all over the sonic spectrum. This might be the Monday motivation we need to wake up, grab our gym bag, and get to stepping: Pavement Bound... Read More

EDWARDIAN

We are enamored with the darkly romantic feel of Edwardian jewelry, which draws from both classical and period-current design inspirations. We’re quick to snatch up these pieces whenever we find them. Apart from their intrinsic beauty, they offer a fascinating look into a short but very rich place in time. The Edwardian era refers to the brief period in Europe between 1900 and 1910 when Edward VII sat on the British throne.

Europe was still precariously rooted in the structures of the past, but ripe for change on... Read More

Beyond the Band

Ah, the classic wedding day ensemble: a blushing bride in a dress that requires the help of several attendants, a veil, some pearl earrings, and two (count em’, two) meaningful rings. Perusing bridal boards on Pinterest and reading even the more unique wedding blogs, you’ll be hard-pressed to find many brides rocking more than a wedding band and their engagement ring on the big day. While we love the symbolism of these two rings and can get behind a minimal wedding look, if simple and subdued has never been your thing, why play it down on your wedding day? There is possibly no better moment to share your most beloved version of yourself with your partner and favorite people. And if... Read More
