There’s no denying the wisdom of the owl. An ever-present trend in accessories, these owl coin purses by So She Sews. . . are just about the cutest things EVER. Adding to the appeal is their eco-friendly makeup – each is fashioned out of fused recycled plastic bags. Told you the owl was wise.

Derby-bound? Or maybe just Derby party-bound? Stop by Revolver to pick up the race’s must-have accessory: A big, bold hat. We’ve got loads of them, as well as new bags, shoes and jewelry!


Our Obsession: Sun hats

We’re welcoming the sun – and its warmth – with open arms. But NOT without proper coverage to face and shoulders. In addition to our ever-present natural sunscreen, we plan to be seen around town (and out of town) sporting a straw beauty much like the Eric Javits hat below. Should you choose to top your mop with a wide-brimmed stunner or a super-chic fedora you’ll be right in style.

Friday Finds: Prepster chic.

Whether you’re near a coast or not, this time of year always has the tendency to conjure up thoughts of traditional summer fun + style: Popsicle colors that pop against a bright blue sky, white cotton…anything, nautical accents (boat shoes, stripes, and a color combo of red, white + blue). The best part about this time of year is that it’s easy (and fun) to incorporate each of these things into your everyday wardrobe.

Grab a few basics: cut off shorts, white jeans, a white blazer and a stripped top then have fun mixing + matching. Keep each look casual with a pair of flats (metallics are always a great “neutral” in the summer) or dress it up with a wedge. Accentuate outfits with fun, bright colors – red being the obvious choice – but yellow, cobalt, and a bold pink goes nice as well.

If you’re on board, you’ll have fun tapping into your inner New Englander to create a chic, comfy look that will sail you right through August.

Our Obsession: Ashley Brodie Jewelry

Durham, NC-based jewelry designer Ashley Brodie is known for her unique, often utilitarian pieces. A stylish homage to the constant flux and impermanence of all things, Ashley designs using eco-friendly materials and incorporating many one-off, vintage elements like the rare Monocle from the late 1800s seen above. “Time’s passage often redifines the fundamental character of an object, wearing away superficial qualities to reveal a richly mellow beauty that’s striking, not obvious. Her collection of Key jewelry, features antique replicas of keys cast in silver or bronze.

Shop Ashley Brodie’s entire offerings at her trunk show at Revolver, Thursday, April 22nd 7 – 10 p.m.

Friday Finds: Accessory Round Up

When choosing your spring attire, never overlook a pile of accessories to polish it off. Accessories are just that – they partner with several pieces to tie together a look. They can transform the plainest clothes, make a statement or add a delicate detail. This spring, it’s all about accessories that speak loud and clear. A brightly-colored clutch to take along in the evening, a belt with feminine detail to cinch around your waist or an army of bangles, all shapes + sizes accepted, to liven up your wrist. Of course sometimes less is more, so if you prefer a single cuff, a fun pair of shoes or a bold necklace to top off your tank, make those your partners in crime instead.

Friday Finds: Petal Power

This season everything is coming up roses. And other flowers are perfectly acceptable as well. Coordinating with warmer temps, floral prints and details are appearing on everything from headbands to heels. Mix a bit of sassy with this sweet by adding a leather bomber over a patterned dress, pinning a few petals in your hair to refine a messy chignon, or glamming up jeans and a tank with flowery footwear. Incorporating these accents into your spring routine is sure to keep your spirits in bloom.
