...Best of: Holiday Gifts...

For the Natural Hipster:

Vers Clock/Radio/iPod Player:

Vers, in addition to their stylish design and function, is a very socially- and environmentally-responsible company.
As with all of our wood sound systems and accessories, for every tree we use in production, we plant 100 through our long-time partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation.
Reclaimed Wood Bike Rack: Cantilever and Press, etsy

this wall mounted bike-frame rack is made of reclaimed wood and end-cuts, utilizing scrap materials to make something functional. the wood for this rack remains "raw" meaning it is unfinished or has the same finish it began with when it was reclaimed. all racks are custom made and will appear differently.
For the Victorian-inspired Interior Designer:

I absolutely love and am inspired by the etsy seller, Uncommon.

...modbsession: vintage scarves...

I'm loving the turban trend that has hit us the past few months. And maybe I'm a little late to get on it, but that's not going to stop me from completely obsessing over it.

One of my fave go-to fashion sites is The Glamourai. The lovely Kelly is not only adorably fashionable, but so accessible. I really think she is the kind of person that wants you to be the best fashionista you can be.

A perfect example of her do-goodery in the fashion world is her Turban Tying Tutorial [which was even shared on nytimes.com!]

Don't get me wrong, I've been obsessed with vintage scarves for years, but I love that with a new season comes a new twist, literally.

Unfortunately, my awkward medium-length hair doesn't do the turban justice, so I've been playing around with other styles of headwraps—trying to include large bows whenever possible. Fun!
