With Coachella kicking off this weekend, festival season is in full swing and that means it’s time to break out the fanny pack (hands free is KEY when it comes to choosing a festival bag). And although the fanny pack is perfect for festivals, we think this handy dandy little number should be a staple all year long.
The fanny we’re featuring here is designed by a mom and her 2 daughters, who’s mission is to liberate women from their baggage. Their company, Hipsters for Sisters, is a line of stepped up fanny packs made in the USA with a portion of the sale of every bag going directly to charities that either support Mother Earth or liberate and empower women.
Now that’s fashion we can get behind.
We recently styled one of our most fun shoots to date: a Valentine’s edition lingerie and PJ story for one of our favorite websites, Glossed and Found. We scoured the city (and beyond) for the very best in intimates and cozy wear for boys and girls and, we’ll be honest, we kind of want it all.
Here’s a little sneak peek. For the full story and where-to-buy info, visit Glossed and Found.

For the last 3 years, we have had the pleasure of collaborating on a creative project with an amazing team, where the collective goal — and our only purpose — is to create artistic and amazing photographs. The project is always the brainchild of our dear friend and amazing photographer, Kirsten Miccoli. The pictures are displayed each January in Chicago at a group art show called A Personal Project (there are many other amazing contributors, so definitely check it out).
The first year, there were live mice involved (and one incredible, professional, and brave model!) The next year, we had naked models in a kiddie pool. For 2015, Kirsten’s theme was flowers. Dark and thorny, bright and vibrant, pure, and dying.
We can’t share the images with you yet, but we can share this fantastic behind-the-scenes video from Chicago-based film gangstas, Indirap Productions. Hope you enjoy!

Like most women, we love shoes. And when we shop for shoes, two things are key: style and comfort. We love our heels, but we are also very much into the idea of looking cool and stylish while not torturing ourselves.
Enter The Offices of Angela Scott.
Angel Scott is our kind of gal: smart, stylish, entrepreneurial and a little bit kooky. She is a tomboy at heart, having grown up in California with four older brothers. This, in addition to her deep love with her grandfather and his impeccable style, has a major influence on her own style and her line of shoes.
Her moda operandi is comfortable shoes that look like a million bucks. We’re not talking Clarks here, people; we’re talking about shoes that attract the savviest of fashionistas.
The style speaks for itself, but what’s the secret to the comfort factor? It’s a cork insole. Brilliant, right?
From wingtips to skater shoes, and even sandals and heels, The Offices of Angela Scott is filled with pieces that can be worn with everything from flirty dresses to your favorite beat-up jeans. These shoes are made to be worn. And that’s just the way we like our fashion.
