calivintage - Power Of My People SS17 Look Book

the new power of my people spring 2017 collection is out! they have a great selection of shirting for both men and women in beautiful summer weight fabrics and easy cuts. i’m excited to see that they brought back my favorite linen friend shirt in the wayward fit because it was one of my favorite shirts in the heat of the summer last year, and i can’t recommend it enough! i’ve already pulled it out of storage and it’s only gotten softer since washing and wearing it.

calivintage - esby apparel spring 2017

it’s officially spring, and i’m already falling behind on sharing all of my favorite spring collections! as you know, i’ve been a really big fan of esby apparel for several seasons running, and their latest spring 2017 collection is high on my list of favorites. this austin-based brand was founded in 2014 by stephanie beard, and has continued to grow, with a selection of garments made in the usa using quality fabrics and thoughtful design. i’ve picked up two of their best-selling jumpsuits and they are easily some of my favorite pieces. everything is designed with ease and comfort in mind, without ever being boring. they experiment with shapes like cropped tops and wide legs, long dusters and versatile dresses. everything can be washed and worn from season to season, so you never feel like you’ve invested in something that will go out of style. you can shop their online store, or you can use my link below:

lauren winter spring 2017

calivintage - lauren winter spring 2017

spring is in the air and i’m looking at the latest lauren winter collection for inspiration. this season, she’s introduced the most beautiful shades of rose and peach, in addition to her classic japanese indigo double gauze cotton and neutral shades of hemp and linen. i love the philosophy behind the brand– that clothes should be comfortable while still being interesting. and of course, sustainability is a big part of their ethos. in addition to sourcing fair-trade textiles, they also use sustainable fibers like hemp, organic cotton, and linen to offset their carbon footprint. even the packaging is 100% recycled.

but all of that aside, the collection alone is absolutely beautiful. you know how much i love a good jumpsuit, so it’s probably no surprise that i’m dying over the rose-colored cove jumpsuit, inspired by 1930s beach attire complete with a rope tie waist. it is definitely very close to the top of my spring wishlist. or if you want something a bit less flashy, the cove top is just lovely.

once upon a time, i used to post weekly roundups of inspirational images i’d found around the web. i’m not sure exactly why i ever stopped, because i certainly continue to spend an embarrassing amount of time looking at pretty pictures online haha. one trend that i have been admiring, but have yet to try myself, is metallics. everything from pearlescent to glitter to patent leather, silk, and velvet. they seem to be catching my eye everywhere i look these days and i finally want to give it a try. i think the easiest way to incorporate the look would be with shoes or a handbag, yet i still haven’t mustered up the courage to do it! in particular, i’ve been eying the martiniano glove flats in gold. they’d be perfect for christmas and new year’s parties, don’t you think?

heinui fall 2016

1348126_800_ef9e3c

it’s that time of year when more and more fall collections are coming out from all of my favorite independent designers. and my wish list is growing to ridiculous proportions, especially now that i’ve seen the heinui fall 2016 collection! this season, she’s introduced so many beautiful art prints mixed with some of her classic indigo styles in updated fits. i especially love her collections because each piece really stands out on it’s own yet is still surprisingly versatile. she uses beautiful, sturdy textiles like japanese cotton that can be worn simply with flats, while still being able to transition into a more dressy occasion with the right accessories.

elizabeth suzann cold weather collection

calivintage - elizabeth suzann cold weather collection

as i’m sure you know by now, i have been a big fan of elizabeth suzann since her very first days as a designer. so it is no surprise that i am hugely excited about the release of her new cold weather collection. granted, i don’t live in a very cold clime, but the collection was very thoughtfully created in a similar vein as their signature collection. they are all timeless classics that may change and evolve over time, but that will remain a core set of garments offered year round for chilly summer evenings or crisp winter days alike.

and of course, as you have come to expect from elizabeth suzann, everything has been created with the same design philosophy: to make getting dressed easy and enjoyable, while being comfortable and functional. but one thing that really stands out about the new collection is the story about how they’ve improved their supply chain. of the change, they said:

with the shift to a permanent cold weather collection, fabric selection felt more significant than any other seasonal collection. we decided to make a monumental shift to using all locally woven wool fabric from our good friends at tennessee textile mill right here in nashville. the wool yarn is also sourced domestically in oregon at imperial stock ranch. the implications of moving not only to locally woven fabric but also domestically sourced wool yarn are many and significant, including a complicated supplier process, in addition to an increase in price to account for both the vastly improved yarn and local production. these were obstacles we considered and ultimately decided were worth overcoming, and we hope that you agree.

the end result is an incredibly luxurious collection of wearable garments that will act as mainstays in your closet that can be worn for years to come.

shop elizabeth suzann.

gravel & gold fall 2016

calivintage - gravel & gold fall 2016

you may be familiar with gravel & gold’s iconic boob print seen ’round the web, but what you may not know is that they have also been producing beautiful collections for several seasons running! way back in the day, when i still lived in san francisco, i would stop by their shop in the mission district to buy gifts and things and even got a dress from one of their very first collections. since then, they’ve only gotten better. and their new fall 2016 collection might be my favorite yet! i’ve been more and more drawn to art prints, so the night landscape print is hitting all the right notes. i love that they used it on a bunch of different pieces including a dress, top, pants, and jacket so you can go all out with a matching set or keep it subtle as just a little statement.

everything is up for pre-sale right now, so you better head over and place your order because i have a feeling they’re going to sell out quick! shop gravel & gold.

good night, day fall 2016 (pt. 2)

57230001

and without skipping a beat, part two of the good night, day fall 2016 lookbook. all of the designs are so thoughtful and beautiful, made better knowing that designer tara-lynn morrison uses only sustainable yarns fairly sourced from south america and only her hands to knit each and every order. i’ve been following her since i started blogging, and each season i think that she can’t top herself, and yet she does! her latest round of knits make me wish i could move up to canada and swath myself in her luxuriously soft shawls and toques.

if you like what you see, make sure to check out part one of her collection and to head on over to shop good night, day.

good night, day fall 2016 (pt. 1)

07550012

i have long been a fan of canadian designer tara-lynn morrison and her knitwear brand good night, day. i think our online friendship began right around the same time that i became a blogger over 8 years ago! which is truly impressive when i really start to think about it. she’s been dreaming up beautiful knits for years and hand-knitting every single piece in her shop, and continuing to inspire me as i follow along on her journey. with fashion, it’s so easy to get swept away with the latest trends or the most sought-after labels without thinking too much about who made them or where they came from. but tara-lynn’s work stops you in your tracks and helps to shake you out of your fast-fashion trance. all of her fibers are ethically sourced from south america and every single piece has been knit by her. when you make a purchase from good night, day you are contributing to the slow fashion movement. her work is consciously political, sustainable, and beautiful.

and this season, she does not disappoint. looking at these images, i want to step right into the dreamy world that she’s created, draped in luxurious textures and feeling the crisp autumn air against my skin. my favorite is definitley the dark umber inklin sweater seen above. it seems like the perfect thing to wear with a pair of jeans or thrown over a simple dress on a chilly day.

shop good night, day.

solly baby fall 2016

2k6a1863-2

a couple of months back, i had the extraordinary opportunity to work with solly baby on their fall 2016 lookbook! our household is really big on babywearing (even adam!), so we were really delighted to be involved. and i got the chance to try out some of the fall collection before they hit the stores, including the currently sold-out but soon to be back-in-stock rifle x solly baby wrap seen here in the photos.

poor little edie was unexpectedly sick the day of the shoot, so she ended up sleeping on my chest throughout the entire shoot, which actually turned out to be the perfect thing for her. holding them close like this makes all of the difference because it helps them to feel calm and comfortable, while i’m able to keep my hands free. it’s a win all the way around!
