Totally Awesome

I heart my friend Martha who is a wickedly awesome graphic designer. Yay for her as she is getting married in October! Just check out these incredible Save the Dates she sent out that had us drooling: No, your eyes do not deceive you. Yes, that is letterpress, designed by Marth herself, done by the lovely Alee & Press, stitched by Marth onto fabric by Amy Butler. Clearly we are on the edge of our seats for the official invite, and of course, the wedding!!

Sound Check: June

It may be sweltering outside, but inside were staying cool and listening to these fine tracks:
  • Mos Def - This fab album came out just a few weeks ago and it's already getting tons of play. We can't get "Quiet Dog" out of our heads!
  • Q-Tip - Who doesn't love Q-Tip?? Well, if you don't already from his Tribe Called Quest days, give one listen to "Won't Trade" and you'll be an instant fan.

You may think I'm crazy....

But I am ready for Fall! Sure June just began and we are all excited to sport our sandals and bikini tops, but just around the corner our pre-Fall rolls in! So I took the liberty of updating our collections list down to the right. Not all our designers are on it of course (like Gemma and Parker (two great lines of blouses), but I thought maybe I could excite you all about the season ahead as well! It all begins this July....YAY!
PS - like the sweater above? Its TWG and it's coming in this Fall!

A Model Citizen

You may recognize model Liya Kebede from strutting on runways in Paris and New York, but now she is doing a little role reversal and taking on the title of designer. Her new lines Matta and Lemlem bring a refreshingly authentic appeal to chic ethnic apparel. New to the Jac-front are scarves from her Lemlem line (translation: to bloom). These hand wovened pieces are made of a gauzy natural cotton and are THEEE perfect accessory for the dog days of Summer. Especially in Atlanta, where style and heat are arch-enemies!
Unlike many of the scarves carried during prior seasons, these scarves are truely effortlessly chic and light weight.Plus proceeds go back to aid the weavers that produce these beauties back in her native country, Ethiopia

Hair-Raising Thoughts

It's one thing to love your duds, it's a whole other thing to love your look....and one of the most important things when putting yourself together for almost any woman is her hair. Summer in Atlanta is particularly hard with the intense humidity. I've been looking for other options than the easy-peasy pony-tail pull-back and here's a few I may tackle in the coming weeks:
Anna Paquin works a perfectly lovely messy side bun
Looks a bit fancy, but I think I can pull off a similar version with about 1 million bobby pins
I've been trying to master this cross-over braid for a few months now
Taylor Swift rocks the Bohemian look with a Bandeau. Not sure if this is for me so I have been sticking to our fabulous headbands by local Kelly Cadet and Pistachio

Do you have any summer hair cares? Send us a comment or stop by to try on our amazing hair pieces!

magnified moments

This Folklore, Valerie Pensworth

Valerie Pensworth is one of my favorite artists and also one of my dearest friends. She recently moved to Portland, and lucky for us, is now focusing on art full-time.
Personally, her art strikes me both aesthetically and conceptually. Valerie aims to represent the connections between childhood and adulthood, conveying precise moments as magical or awkward, which she finds both "intriguing and delicate."

Her colors are at once muted and vibrant, the humans depicted both distorted and life-like. I am extremely drawn to these successful contradictions, and I proudly display them on my walls!

Here are some of my favorite works...

Valley of Daydreams, Valerie Pensworth

Collective Collection, Valerie Pensworth

Reluctant Trade, Valerie Pensworth
(note: I own this and I love it and you can own it too because she made prints!)

Look at amazing art:
