Mother's Day is fast approaching- its Sunday, May 10th- and if you are like me, buying for ones parents always proves to be a difficult task. But don't fret! At Jac we have some amazing and unique gift ideas, one of which is bound to work for mom.

Matta Market Bag

This Matta summer bag is perfect for the beach, or even day-to-day. It comes in a few different colors, all are fun and bright.

And while I'm sure mom would be appreciative of the bag, why not add a few items inside? As I wrote about last week, our Soaptopia products are amazing and natural and with eight different scents, you can find one mom will surly love.

Moss Mills Little Love Necklace

Show your love for mom with this necklace by Moss Mills. Sometimes jewelry can be a hard buy for others, but this simply and sweet necklace would please any mom!

Loyale Tara Blouse

For the stylish mom, this Loyale top is a must. The lightweight material and summer color make this shirt a fantastic gift.

EarthLust Water Bottle

If your mom loves going green, get her this water bottle by Earthlust. She can stay hydrated and chic!

Now We're Makin' Scents

Just in time for this long awaited brush of warmth, Skeem Pillar Candles have made their way onto our shelves to give you 90 burning hours of scented bliss. These are not your basic ivory candles in a fancy box. All of the candles are made of a custom soy wax and cotton wick to ensure a "clean burn". (Nothing is worse than a soot rimmed candle) The glasses that are used have been beautifully silk screened according to scent. And the best part: You can reuse them as drinking glasses!!! Uh huh!! So no more burning dollars on fancy trash!

I went through the 7 and chose my top three:

White Tea and Thyme is a wonderful crisp blend of tea leaves and thyme with hints of jasmine and lemon. The Arboretum collection features beautiful and intricately-detailed shadow floral artwork that is layered to create a collage of modern botanical imagery.

Amber Clove is a warm scent mixing musk and spice. To weave a lace pattern that is also modern in feeling, flourishes, arabesques, cartouches, scrolls, and ornaments were used.

Sea Spray evokes the crisp, fresh scent of salty sea air captured in the eaves of an old, cedar-clapboard cottage. Just as birds gather bits and pieces to build their nests, a collection of old documents, postcards, and stamps were used to create these collages of sweet, silhouetted bird images.

Stop in a try the others:

Clove Pomegranate

Gardenia Nectar

Ripe Papaya

Soaptopia soaps have arrived, and they were well worth the wait!

Soaptopia was started by Jolie Chitwood when she turned her own home into an apothecary in order to create these amazing soaps. All the soaps are handmade in small batches with natural products and oils.
We have eight different varieties here at Jac, but my favorite is the Creme Vanilla and the Grapefruit Gatsby. Both are full, yummy scents, but in no way do they over power

We also got Body balms from Soaptopia, they are 50% lotion and 50% natural oil, I am loving the Lavendar.

I am Barefoot, for One Day Without Shoes

We love Toms here at Jac! We have a secret stash behind the counter where we change into them about 3 hours after we open and are tired of the heels.
Other times, we plan whole outfits around them!
But not only do they feel GREAT, but the company does great things as well:
For those of you who don't know, for every pair you purchase, Toms gives one pair to a child in need. To date, they have given away over 140,000 pairs and intend on giving 300,000 more in 2009 alone.
Toms has declared today a "One Day Without Shoes" Day to bring awareness to their cause. Here are some facts about how the shoes make a difference:
  • Fact #1: In some developing nations, children must walk for miles to food, clean water and to seek medical help.
  • Fact #2: Cuts and sores on feet can lead to serious infection.
  • Fact #3: Often, children cannot attend school barefoot.
  • Fact #4: In Ethiopia, approximately one million people are suffering from Podoconiosis, a debilitating and disfiguring disease caused by walking barefoot in volcanic soil.
  • Fact #5: Podoconiosis is 100% preventable by wearing shoes.
If you would like to purchase a pair of Toms, go here.

Luck Be A Lady

With colours named Parfait and Frosting, you'd probably think LA Made's spring collection consisted of cupcakes and sundaes. Instead they have managed to prepackage that idea into dresses.

This lovely and might I add comfy number, features a smocked back for a perfect fit, removable straps for the minimal fuss, and eyelet tiers for the perfect dose of femininity.
There is only one in the shop, so there will be a lucky lady waltzing around Atlanta.

...and this Luck Eyelet Shift is perfect for a quick get up and go day. Ladies you know what I'm talking about. The days when you don't want your noonday ensemble to require a physics equation to put together.
It's just a little shift with a little bit of eyelet to jazz up the canvas.

Now only if this weather were to clear up a bit...

Zooey Deschanel. Yup, she's pretty cool. Even when I try to hate her, I can't! Like how she "sold out" by doing this video for Cotton. I mean, she looks great. And let's be honest, Cotton's pretty cool too....

I love coffee. I live on coffee. If I spent more time making my coffee than drinking my coffee, I would want it to look like the one above. Or this one:

One of the most commonly heard things we hear here at Jac (aside from how great the shop is of course!) is how great our hangers are! Random, yes, but like everything here at Jac from the clothing to the rolley racks to the, yes, hangers - all was laboriously hand-picked!
Anyway, found this AMAZING idea over at Shelteriffic and we think it's just brilliant and had to share. We loooooove posters and have literally tons bookmarked all over the web that we intend to buy and once we finally do, you can bet that we will be hanging at least one with a cool vintage hanger!

Tis' the season!

For weddings! Summer not only means beach and sun, but it is also that time of year mailboxes are full with wedding invitations. This year, I have a wedding to attend in July at the beach. I am horribly indecisive even when deciding what to eat for dinner, so picking a dress for the wedding is truly a challenge for me.

Here are some options I am thinking about:
Option 1:

Lauren Moffatt Long Sleeveless Dress

A maxi dress would be ideal, because I'll want simple shoes walking around in sand. the colors on this dress are vibrant and amazing...a definite option.

Option 2:

Dallin Chase Greg Dress

I also loooove this dress. The color of the flowers are perfectly suited for a night beach wedding, and the flowing layers are exactly what I'll need for dancing.

Option 3:

Built by Wendy Window Pretty Dress

First of all, this is my favorite color. ever. This dress is a little more casual, but can totally still work. I would probably wear my hair up in heidi braids.

I hate making decisions! But, hey, if this is the biggest decision plaguing me today, I guess its a good day.

Status Update:

Stay tuned folks! New Toms (for men and women), Steven Alan (yes men, TONS of smalls and mediums!!) and more to come......or just head to the shop to see now! xx

Now Showing:

Yesterday I broke my 15 month hiatus of not going to a theater. It was time I felt, though On Demand had been filling in quite nicely (most recently, Nick & Nora's Playlist (ugh) and The Wackness (weird) - all very teen angsty). And so I went to a matinee showing of Adventureland.
Adventureland is set in 1987 - and features some of the great trends and music from that very distinctive era....and of course we all know how trends cycle back through....the good ones at least - some of which we have here at Jac!
Like this jean skirt by James Jeans
Paired with leg warmers - totally 80s. But paired with these sandals from Matta, totally classic!
And what's more 80s than super bright colorful jewelry?? These Fleather earrings totally make the cut, but are rockstar fabulous as well!

And how about your favorite Kiss concert tee? Totally 80s! But on your cute little kid? Totally hipster:
It's all how you spin it people.....xoxoJac.

Summer Scents

Amazing scents, body glow and lip balm has arrived from Rituelle!

My personal favorite is the coconut ginger scent (I love EVERYTHING coconut). But they also come in frangipani (floral and sweet), pink jasmine (a toned down floral, and my second favorite), and ruby mango (fruity and sweet).

The body glow has a bit of shimmer, but not so much you feel like you are in middle school again. It is an extremely soft glow, and a yummy smell.

If you love sweets, the lip balms are made for you! The two flavors are cotton candy and chocolate mint, and both will surly satisfy any sweet tooth.

Now, with all these summer scents we just have to wait for the summer weather!
But as we all know it will come soon enough and I'm sure I'll be complaining about the heat, SO I plan to stay hydrated with our new Earthlust water bottles. The designs on the bottle make them much cooler than Nalgene bottles, and better for the environment than buying bottled water.
This one is my favorite:

all these items make great gifts!
