Mondays, Maggie Muses: Summer Daze

More summer and less Monday I say! Because we have had more June gloom in July this year than ever before (well, at least it seems like it), I am craving warmer weather to enjoy the beauty that our area has to offer. As a former Californian, my summer daze in PNW is quite different than my summers at the beach. Here are some images that capture what a now Washingtonian looks forward to in the dog days of summer.

We have a new line in the shop here at re-souL, it’s called Satorisan. We are all smitten with this new Spring collection and inspired by the travels we would take wearing our shoes that are oh so comfortable.

Satorisan is an international lifestyle brand whose attitude is grounded in balance and harmony, honesty and respect, quality and comfort, love and caring. Developed in Valencia, Spain and produced in Vietnam, Satorisan is into “live by the walk”. They believe if your feet are happy, the rest of you will be happy too.

Satorisan Jasmine Green Soles

Green Jasmine soles by Satorisan.

Their signature green sole is a special compound similar to that used in competition car tires, which increases the traction properties on dry or wet conditions.

The leathers are sourced in Spain and the canvas fabric is milled in Italy. The international collaboration of designers and manufacturers produce an unbeatably comfortable product. We like the way they look and feel, and we hope you will too.

Mondays, Maggie Muses: Fashion Illustration

On a recent buying trip to Milan, I stopped at the Triennale di Milano and took in an exhibition called the¬†“The New Vocabulary of Italian Fashion”. (If you would like to see what this show was about, click here.) I was inspired by the Italian fashion illustrations on display. Which of course led me to go find these artists and see what other things they might be doing. Here are three that I loved the most from the exhibit and samples of their other work.
