Hat Couture

A good summer hat is the no brainer accessory that keeps you from having to deal with your hair AND protects your face from the sun's harmful rays. DYK that 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer by the age of 70? And that more people are diagnosed with skin cancer each year in the U.S. than all other cancers combined? Maybe its time to invest in a great quality sun hat (in addition to the SPF). Check out these beautiful toppers from Janessa Leone, Tracy Watts and Lola Hats, all hand made in the USA by skilled milliners.

Plastic Alternative

Coming to you in honor of a plastic free July... The mission of this not for profit charitable organization is to build a global movement that dramatically reduces plastic use and improves recycling worldwide. Becoming aware of your plastic use is similar to the growing awareness around reading labels and understanding #whomademyclothes. Step 1 is admitting we have a problem, so get a reusable bag or tote that you love and bring it everywhere you go because plastic bags both big and small are simply not in style.

They will see us waving from such great heights... come down now... they'll say. But everything looks perfect from far away... come down now, but we'll staaayyy.

Its an LA based brand that manufactures in the USA. Thanks for that. And most importantly to all present and past US servicemen and women, thank you for your service.
