Proud to Present: Cado Jewelry by Dorina Camusso

 

One day, a year ago last Fall, owner Maggie found herself walking back to her B&B in Milan after attending a shoe trade show.  She needed an afternoon of decompressing. Shopping the storefronts of the neighborhood seemed like a good way to relax before heading off to dinner.

She walked into a gift shop called Brandstorming where she found locally made gifts and jewelry by Milanese artisans. After buying a necklace she asked the shop owner about the designer and would she be willing to contact Cado on Maggie’s behalf. The shop owner obliged and the next thing you know, Maggie had scheduled herself an appointment for the next day.  Continue reading

What do I wear with: Bed Stu “Stand” Boot (Men’s Edition)

Each Wednesday we’ll answer the on-going question: “What do I wear with these?”  It’s a question we get quite often here at the shop and we love giving suggestions when helping our customers. This week we feature the Bed Stu “Stand”.

What to wear with: BedStu Stand Boot ( Men's edition)

This two-tone boot with lug sole from Bed Stu is more versatile than it would appear.  The color combination of a warm brown and black give it an interesting look without being too showy.  This boot could be worn sporty casual with a hoodie for your weekend off or polish it up a bit with dark jeans and a vest.  Since your feet will look so good, you may want to upgrade your personal accessories with a new eye catching wallet and an “old school” watch.

Featured re-souL items:
Bed Stu “Stand” boot with good-year welt construction, made in Mexico.
J Fold “Roadster” wallet in brown leather.
> Alessi TXC Watch black face with black leather strap

Mondays, Maggie Muses: Bright and Colorful Gifts

Hi, I’m Maggie. My husband (Legh) and I own re-souL.   I like to “muse” about things that inspire me.  Especially on Mondays.

Update 12/02/13 – the majority of these items are still available in the shop. Please contact us for more information or click on the orange links below the pictures to link to resoul.com.

This year I am thinking about modern colorful gifts for friends and family. The holidays are about getting together and celebrating each other. So why not give someone you love something bright and festive?

Like these ornaments from Alessi. Great as a set, but each one stands out on its own too. Don’t you love the donkey?

Fall Color Story: Forest Green

Forest Green

Lately, we’ve been having a fascination with the color green. Not kelly green, not lime green or mint green (okay, we have been having a thing for mint green too).  No, we’re talking about forest green. You know, the kind of green that you can only find, well in a forest.  It’s a beautiful hue that looks sophisticated with black or dark grey. A nice compliment to cream and ivory. Richly regal with browns, especially cognac or chocolate.  It just simply looks fresh to us. What do you think?

Items from re-souL:
> Vialis “5363″ shootie in forest green, $294, made in Spain
> MTNG “Hydra” suede double zip boot, $148, made in Spain. Call for availability.
> Mywalit “492″ flap pouch with key ring, $36, imported.
