Shop Local This Christmas

Thursday, 5 December 2013
When a well-intentioned friend suggested we camp outside a "new" multinational company this morning (hours before official opening for a paltry 10% discount) we got thinking about the real value of shopping small and local versus...well, the huge companies that many of us know and, let's be honest, love.

Although this is a very US-centric post, we can't help but grimace, nod and agree with many of the points.



So this Christmas, please think big and shop small. Your local community, families and businesses depend upon it.

Tutorial: Vested Interest - Scarf to Vest in 3 Easy Steps

 Get the Look with Lightweight Scarves by Jessica T
 Get the Look with Lightweight Scarves by Jessica T

We can't get enough of this look at Jessica T HQ! Even though we tend to be a little on the vertically challenged side, we personally love the cape look that longer scarves create, especially when the lightweight fabric flows as you walk. It's like having your own personal wind machine! 

Half the fun, of course, is experimenting with different size and style scarves and seeing what works for you and your wardrobe.

We used the Meji Leaf Scarf [Red] for this tutorial, which is also available in Black. Our Feather Circle Scarf [Blue] is slightly longer and would be perfect for the  longer cape look if that's your thing, plus it would look beautiful belted at the waist too - so many options!

Enjoy!

Jessica T at Gold Coast Swim Fashion Festival

Saturday, 30 November 2013
We were very proud to be part of the recent Gold Coast Swim Fashion Festival, and it's always extra exciting to see how Kimberly Gardner wields her stylist superpowers.

We especially love her styling of our Meji Leaf Scarves, which have been tied around the head and over the ears, then layered under a relaxed wide-brimmed hat (like our Sunday Floppy Hat.)

This is a great way to be sunsmart and protect your hair at the same time, especially on the road trip to and from the beach! Roll down the windows, pop off your hat, but leave the head scarf on for a bit of Old Hollywood glamour. Perfection!

Spring 2013 Behind the Scenes

Wednesday, 11 September 2013
Better late than never! A little behind the scenes action from our Eastern Ascendancy Spring 2013 shoot at the picturesque Japanese Garden at Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens.

The scenery - so pretty!

 And action!

Photobombed!

The serial photobomber makes his escape.

Last minute adjustments.

 Mid-shoot chats with this suave little lad.

Don't mind us!

Many thanks to everyone involved in such a fantastic day, including the Botanic Gardens ground staff who were most obliging, and the many patient onlookers who kindly shared the beautiful setting with us!
