Bold, Eco-Friendly Fashion By Fink

I absolutely adore Fink’s recycled garment designs. Their style is very bold and unique. I am really crushing on the Carlton design right now. Who doesn’t love Carlton Banks? Designers Karen and Kristen’s collaboration produced versatile pieces that have a lovely vintage flair. They screen print their own designs, and hand sew the fabrics into several garments. If you fancy one of their designs just visit the Fink website.

Stunning Sea Life Jewerly by Barbara Umbel

I was absolutely stunned when I discovered Barbara Umbel’s sea life jewelry designs. At first glance, her pieces seemed too perfect to be actual sea shells. I was amazed to discover she actually uses seashells, gemstones and freshwater pearls found on Pawleys Island in South Carolina.

Barbara’s designs are beautiful, and the creative use of materials found in her environment is very inspiring to me. All of Barbara’s designs are one-of-a-kind, and can be found on BarbaraUmbel.com or Barbara Umbel on Etsy.

Fashion Crush: Melissa Plastic Dreams & Vivienne Westwood Anglomania Collaboration

I nearly fell over when I saw these in a window while out taking a stroll in the Lanes this Sunday. Two of my favorite designers have collaborated to create these fabulously funky shoes. I have written about Melissa Plastic Dreams shoes before and I have good news to report. Since then I have tried them on and they are quite comfortable. Additionally, the claim that they smell of bubble gum is very true. Now, Vivienne Westwood has collaborated with Melissa Plastic Dreams to bring us this new collection called Anglomania. Let the girly screams commence.
