Deal of the Week: Trendy Yellow Satchel

How about a little color in your wardrobe this summer? 

"From sunshine to mustard, yellow is turning heads this season," said Elle. Yellow also showed big on the Fall 2010 runway. So you can take this bag from summer right into fall.

Yellow is my favorite color, so I'd love to give it a try. 

This satchel adds a little pop to your style.

It's my deal of the week for you.

Nine & Co. Satchel: was $48.00 now $22.99  Sorry the yellow sold out! 
Also available in Espresso and Black.

Back to the Beach With Home Accessories from Roost!

For me, the beach is the song in my head I play over and over again. I love driftwood and the salty stink of low tide. I love the ocean air that gives my hair a thick and messy texture and the beach sun that paints my tresses with lemony highlights. And I love to swim.

I bring the beach home with me. 

I dump sand out of my paperbacks and bags. And as if the waves ebb and flow through my front door, and leave behind their watery treasures: You'll spot seashells, sea glass and smooth round stones scattered every where. 

I tell a friend my living room style is French-Japanese-Beachy. 

When I discover Roost I am a happy beach bum. Roost uses "authentic materials and finishes" like shells and wood. All their accessories are "handmade, small craft production." Like me they favor naturalism: botanicals, trees, birds and sea creatures.
