Hello All! Long time, no blog. As most of you know, summer is stupidly slow here in Boca Grande, but we've been doing some buying and have some amazing stuff coming in for fall. Our new obsessions...well, Emily's new obsessions are: Cashmere, wrap bracelets, pretty tops, flowy skirts and fabulous necklaces, so stay tuned for all that! Also, since Emily's sick of looking at the stuff in the store our summer sale at 40% off will continue until that last week of October this year, so come on in as soon as you get into town! We'll be doing custom build your own necklaces during Thanksgiving week for Xmas presents and we're also having a Before & Again trunk show the weekend after Thanksgiving so mark it on your calendars, this season is going to be a fun one! Can't wait to see you all again!

Tokyo Milk

We carry this fabulously amazing smelling body line called Tokyo Milk. It's a new line created by the same woman who made the infamous "Lollia" - a great floral line. Tokyo Milk has probably about 20 different perfume smells, which all smell delicious! My top two are:

Sparrow: This scent is crisp and fresh - it has hints of: citrus, gardenia, crisp greens and rosewood. It just makes you feel clean! Plus the bird looks cute on my vanity.
Paper & Cotton: The name makes me think of a tiny french boutique - but the smell....holy amazing! This perfume contains: coriander, white sage, birch wood & tundra moss, but is smells like a sexy man! I love wearing it when I dress up - great dress - sexy man smell - who needs a date? Hellllooooo me! In April, Tokyo Milk held a national store display contest - the winner receives free product. Guess who won? That's right! US!!!!! Here's our display for those of you who fled the island after March madness.

Feel Handmade

OK, I'm a little obsessed with this new handbag line we've recently discovered, Feel Handmade. This husband and wife team makes the most amazing bags - the leather is awesome (they use the same tannery as LV), the detailing is impeccable, and design is completely unique. I loved their stuff so much that i felt the need to purchase 3 pieces! Here are my three:

This one is called "Small Forest" - it's a great size - i can fit everything i need - and i need a lot - into it.

This is the medium clutch - I got this in Rose with teal silk lining - awesome - and the best part: my ipad fits.

This is the small clutch - i use it as a make up bag for my large hand bag - i love the color!

There are a few others that i would buy if i could, cause i love them!

This is Flock - great size - great design.

Weeping Willow - Tote or fold it over to be a clutch - really sort of obsessed with this little number - it's in the store now.....so tempting....

Josh and Erin Johnson of Feel Handmade lived here on the island for about a year with their cute son, Oliver Snow, they are an amazing couple and i'm so happy to have some of their bags - they're working on a few more colors and hopefully we'll have some clutches as well as a few hand bags in the store in the fall. Every aspect of every bag is designed and handmade by the couple, each large bag also has a unique little water color framed in feel stamped metal. Mine has and handsome peacock.

They cost a pretty penny, but wouldn't you rather have an amazing handbag that no one has ever seen rather than a mass produced, been-there, seen-that, "oh i have that" bag. It's boutique people! Jump on the band wagon! See all their stuff at www.feelhandmade.com.
