This collection titled Women Who Inspire by Brooklyn based Slow Factory is just what the world needs right now. It’s a line of eco-friendly and fair trade based scarves dedicated to women in science. Boss ladies that paved the way. I am wearing my Amelia Earhart scarf every day and am channeling her courage as much as I can. You should put a boss lady around your neck as well.
Also, you should know that Slow Factory is a labor of love of one of the most generous, good hearted, strong women I have ever met: Céline Semaan Vernon.
My friend Céline, founder of Slow Factory is one of the most courageous women I know. She uses fashion as a tool for social and environmental change. On cooler days like today, I always leave my house wearing one of her Slow Factory scarves. Her recent Women That Inspire collection is a thing of beauty.
You’re an inspiration, Céline!
Anna Dorfman is fast: Nasty Woman. Bad Hombre. Self-explanatory if you follow US politics.
I totally don’t need this X-Cap Light Up Hat but I can’t help being intrigued.
I doubt this leather wrist ruler is practical to measure anything but it sure looks cool.
Slow Factory created a series of 8 scarves dedicated to women that inspire. This one with Amelia Erhart is my favorite. She was the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean – a trailblazer of a woman!
I am hiring spent a lot of time in interviews last week. I just just stumbled upon this shirt and it made me laugh as I could see it making me highly uncomfortable and feeling stared at in an interview setting. Pretty funny.
Scale Denim aims to make jeans with different inseam and waist sizes. So no matter how tall or short you are, you will have a pair of jean that perfectly fit your body through the waist, thigh, knee, and calf. As a tall woman, I endorse this idea. But, oh wait, currently only available for men. Ops! Ok then guys, support the Kickstarter and help get this idea off the ground.
Love this t-shirt designed by Kyle Scheele. Also available as a print.
I just nearly dropped my coffee, stumbling upon these incredibly cool collection of Graphic Tights by TheHumanMade. How much fun are these?

The world needs more face time. This sweater is here to remind us.
Feeling this T-Shirt. I feel Untitled these days.
The fine folks over at Wire & Twine are running a Spring sale. Good people. Fun designs.
I believe in confetti. I would rock this Confetti Sweatshirt. No doubt.
The older I get, the more I understand why my parents used to say that slow and steady wins. Nothing worthwhile can be rushed.
What a lovely scarf. I’d wear it.
This Trikona ring looks like a crown for your finger. I like it.
I was recently gifted a pair of these Zero Waste Chashmere Bangles and I am loving them. They are made of 100% cashmere scraps. Each piece is unique and hand sewn in Brooklyn. Two thumbs up.
Last week the fabulous Paul Octavious stopped by our studio and I couldn’t help but notice his supercool sandals. They are by Clay and Bros and are the most minimal Sandal you could ever buy, made of a parachute cord and a Vibram sole. I wish they had some photos on their site of people wearing them. They looked sharp on Paul…
Help ink sells t-shirts, cards and prints that do good. The concept is simple: You spend $5, they give $1. The above t-shirt is by no other than Jessica Hische.

These customizable hidden message necklaces by Beth Macri really put a smile on my face. I first learned about it via Rachel of Story. Today I met a lovely lady at the gift show that was wearing one. Definitely wishlisted.
Stunning geometric ear hoops by Sarah Loertscher. #want
This image of the USA at night, printed on a silk scarf, is a composite assembled from data acquired by the Suomi NPP satellite in April and October 2012. A brand new creation by Brooklyn based Slowfactory. Also available are New York, London and Paris by night. Lovely!
Thrilled to see that Paper Jam Press started offering some of their designs as T-Shirts.
