Island boho magic

Aimee Pearce

Mostly having Elissa live on the other side of the world [read: the Pacific, I have a flair for the dramatic] sucks. Having your wing-woman/business partner/red-wine-sharing/kitchen conversationalist/life and world problem solver MIA is mostly the worst. But there is the occasional perk. Like the on-location photo shoot opportunities.

Some of this product isn't even online yet but I couldn't resist giving you a sneak peak into this dreamy island boho shoot. Our gorgeous wanderlust-inspired pieces certainly looked right at home in the Pacific.

Some not-so-fun facts about the fashion industry

Aimee Pearce

One of my New Year's resolutions is to buy less "stuff". Don't get me wrong, I love a new pair of jeans as much as the next girl, but you don't need to do much research to discover the impact our purchases are having on the world - environmentally and socially.

I stumbled across this great article with 15 simple, yet mind-blowing facts about the fashion industry. Like for example, did you know that fashion is the THIRD most polluting industry in the WORLD! Only beaten by oil and agriculture?!?! And did you know it takes 900 gallons of water (that's 0ver 3400 LITRES!) to make a SINGLE PAIR OF JEANS!!!!
