Delightfully Denim.

How do you prefer your denim?

Bedazzled. Shredded. Denim on denim. Covered in patches or pins. Dark. Light. Formal.

I go for all of the above, personally - but for this post I'm talking dresses.

It gets hot wearing denim during warm weather, unless it's in some skirt or short variation, especially in New York between the months of April through September. I was craving a denim sundress that wouldn't break the bank. After searching my usual favorite online shops (Nasty Gal, River Island, Modcloth ...) I found this baby on Asos - there's a terrific selection under 100 bucks! Something I particularly enjoy about this dress is that you can wear it belted or un-belted, in the warm and cold months, with a top on underneath.

So, what's your fave way to wear denim in summer? Let me know in the comments! Stay cool in what's left of August!

Opening Party @The Bowery Bond

Up-and-coming artists from around the globe gathered to celebrate the opening of joint store space, The Bowery Bond, on Thursday, June 22nd. Giant balloons, drinks a-flowin', and beats from DJ Crazy B filled the space, while artists mingled, with their displays of handmade goods.

If I could take anything away from this multi-artist store, I believe it would be this rock'n'roll jacket - so rad!

OMG!

I heart these clear sunnies. ;)

Don't miss finding a unique piece - whether it be jewelry, art, home decor, or clothing! There is a wild, daring array of inspiring one-of-a-kind items here on Bowery. My husband, Ben, found a hilariously cool series of Ab Fab themed goodies by sweet CherocPopShop.

If your style errs on the adventurous and whimsical spectrum, I would highly recommend checking out the clothing ByRaha. Her items are ethically-sourced handmade luxury items mainly made in Iran. She is a pal and invited us to the party, so I am a tad biased. :)

Fantastic mules! I’d wear ‘em.
