poetry bombing

thought this was really cute - artist augustina woodgate, based in miami, heads to local thrift stores armed with needle and thread sewing tiny poems into clothing as part of a month long poetry festival... 

"life is a huge dream, why work so hard?" - li po

dodging shop assistants comes as part of the task - she has been kicked out of a few stores for getting caught stitching a verse in a pair of worn pants.

we'ar likes paying attention to the finer details and sharing the love - from hand rolled incense in our swing tags to yoga mat bags to carry your purchase, these are the things that make the difference xx

dean bone gurrrl

who knew our men's dean bone jacket could be just as awesome for the ladies?! 

worn slightly oversized a la kate moss, we'ar totally loving the effortless throw on-ability... i've rolled the sleeves as they come up a little long - great way to show off the burnt orange silk trim, and softens up the masculinity of the cut. my fave feature? check out the collar! soft buttery leather mmmm

an added bonus is that you can go halve-sies with a boyfriend and share - how's that for economical! xx

we'ar wrapping you up

how good is an all encompassing scarf to wrap up in for confronting a brisk winter chill? we managed to wrangle a handful of our oh so popular linen pom pom scarves in our last shipment... there aren't many so let us know if you need one in your life!

or throw on a stripey pom pom scarf! the best way to lively up an outfit... an extra bonus - can also be used as a blanket to lay over your yoga mat :)

*hot tip* keep an eye out for our snuggle scarf! wool blend with a small amount of acrylic for non-itch, it also comes in a version with teeny red pom poms. come to cross st and feel the softness for yourself! xx

btw if you're looking, we still have a few manduka eco mats left at cross st xx
