Currently Crushing On: Lucite Wicker Bags

Photo: Collage Vintage

My obsession with straw bags has evolved over the last year. First, it was simple straw satchels. Then, it was souvenir straw totes, And now, wicker box bags with lucite details have consumed me! This post is actually a cry for help as I’ve fallen down a deep rabbit hole, scouring the web for these vintage treasures and feeling the need to have them all. I just love how the lucite and bakelite elevates an otherwise simple woven bag. And you can actually find most of them in mint condition for no more than $60! Check out my favorites below and please, snatch them up before I do.

제목 없음

Meet The Model Turned Ocean Warrior Out To Change The Way Fashion Thinks About Plastic

00-tout-maryna
Love it or hate it, plastic is a part of everyday life. Whether you’re sipping from a Starbucks cup or wearing synthetic fabrics, it’s hard to escape its presence. Still, Maryna Linchuk is committed to getting people to rethink their relationship with the material. Teaming with eco-organization Parley, the Belarusian modeling star spent her winter break cleaning up the refuse-covered beaches of the Maldives. Though she’d visited the island for photo shoots in the past, getting a bird’s-eye view of the destruction was an eye-opener for Linchuk. “It’s shocking to me that this material that is so unfriendly, so dangerous for animals, and potentially toxic to us has become so normal in our society,” says Linchuk over email. “A plastic...

Alexa Chung’s Stealth Airport Styling Trick Is a No-Brainer

00-lede-alexa
Everybody knows that two bags are better than one at the airport, as recently demonstrated by Chrissy Teigen, who doubled up on Loewe carriers last week. But a multiple jacket strategy makes just as much sense. An extra layer is not only practical given unpredictable cabin temperatures, it can also pack additional style points. Why settle for one statement piece when you can have several? Just look to Alexa Chung, who wrapped up in two toppers when she touched down at Los Angeles International Airport yesterday. Chung threw on a fluffy white fur chubby over a playful tee that just so happened to read “double trouble”—a principle she extended to her outerwear with a more utilitarian army jacket tied around her...

The J.W. Anderson Shoe Influenced by Modernist Sculpture

365074
White cylinder heel ballet shoe, J.W. Anderson 100% nappa leather, black tie fastening, silver-tone cylinder heel After the breakdown of their respective first marriages, Barbara Hepworth took up residence with painter Ben Nicholson in 1932. For a brief period of time afterwards, prior to their own nuptials, the two artists made work in the same studio, developing a collaborative way of practising. The pair also spent periods of time travelling throughout Europe, where they visited the studios of Picasso, Constantin Brancusi and Jean Arp. Much like the influence that Hepworth and Nicholson garnered from each other – and from the eminent list of Modernist artists they met during their Parisian excursions – J.W. Anderson celebrates the impact of Modernist art and craft in his own designs with a particular reverence....

High-End Chefs Are Taking Weed Way Beyond Edibles

hd-aspect-1492628682-marijuana-cooking
It started with an amuse-bouche of quail eggs with caviar and lemon gelée, followed by truffle risotto with forest mushrooms, game hen with barley and tomato, Japanese Wagyu beef and parsnip—on and on until the 11-course meal ended with a dessert of molecular peanut butter powder and a berry-flavored, jelly-filled bubble meant to combine in your mouth. This wasn't a tasting menu at a gastronomic temple collecting Michelin stars or topping World's 50 Best Restaurants lists, but a private dinner in a Santa Barbara, California, hotel suite complete with a kitchen. Oh, and all of the dishes on the menu were infused with a common ingredient: marijuana. "I wanted to do something special for my fiancé, John, and our third anniversary,"...

Noodled: Our Favorite New Beauty Book Also Benefits the Planet

NOODLED_spreads_6_hirez
Hairstylist James Pecis was on a surfing trip in Costa Rica when things went south. The waves got bigger. The wind picked up. “The storms were washing all this trash out to sea. You don’t realize how bad it is unless you’re right by the water,” says the legendary hairstylist (and amateur surfer) . “It all became so clear — why don’t I do a charity project?” He’d take all that ugliness, and turn it into something beautiful: a fine arts book that blends oceanic and hair photography. The limited-edition hardcover is called Noodled, it's available at small bookstores and on accidentalism.com, and all of the proceeds go to Mission Blue to help support marine conservation. Here's a look at...

This Entire Reem Acra Bridal Collection Is Inspired by Breakfast at Tiffany’s

This article originally appeared on HelloGiggles. For more stories like this, visit hellogiggles.com. It’s really hard to choose a favorite aspect of the 1961 classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Audrey Hepburn’s portrayal of the stylish, outspoken Holly Golightly is nothing short of iconic, but alongside Holly’s witty remarks, beautiful rendition of “Moon River,” and unabashed love for her cat sits the film’s shining beacon: its fashion. It seems Harper’s Bazaar agrees, as they recently ran a piece on Reem Acra’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s-inspired bridal collection for spring 2018. The brand’s 20th anniversary collection features wedding dresses in both white and black—with the latter of course channeling the film’s iconic opening scene in which Holly stares into the Tiffany & Co. store window while noshing...

What It’s Like Riding a Motorcycle Through The Desert—And Why You Should Do It Too

landscape-1492625237-20170323-eaglerider-sw-media-ride-6637
y first bike was a Harley. It was shiny, with classic red and black details that shone in the light. It was a breeze to drive—easy to turn, with the engine roaring every time I gave it some juice. I felt free riding it down the pavement, wind blowing past me. I was four. My Harley was a Power Wheels toy. I have to be honest, it was not my first choice of vehicle. I wanted a car (a pink one, preferably Barbie), but my parents were all about practicality. With its relatively cheap price tag and the fact that I would be able to ride it for a couple of years without long legs/growth spurts being an issue, it found itself...
