buy a scarf, educate a girl
Our very own Michelle Blue recently presented a talk at Tedx UGA inspiring us all to live by our vision, and not just the plan. By being open, and not just living by the book, she followed her heart after a trip to Ghana which led to starting a Scarf collection that helps support the very girls who inspired her.

Oh yeah - Michelle is wearing our Abigail Rectangle Scarf ;)
Beauty starts from within. We have to first believe that we truly are a work of art, crafted with no mistakes and no need for editing. If we take a moment and strip away all the comparisons, all the media and all the doubts we've ever had and really took a look at who we are and what makes us special we'll see that we have so much beauty to celebrate. Own it.

Bing celebrates the amazing and heroic women of 2013 in an ad that aired earlier this year.

As always we had a blast at our S/S '14 Collection Photo Shoot! We were so fortunate to have such amazing people take the time out of their schedules for us. The photographer/ videographers were great, the models were beautiful, and the make up artist was on the money. Not to mention all of the helping hands we had on set. With nothing but laughs and personalities that just clicked, work just didn't feel like work.
