What is it about nautical styling that is so clean, classic, crisp and a bit nostalgic? It brings along such a good feeling. Perhaps that is because it makes you think of someplace warm and right about now we are all wishing the Polar Vortex would go elsewhere.
Neptune, our latest pattern for Spring 14, pays tribute to the nautical style that is popping up all over the place. The deep blue and aqua are reminiscent of the sea and sky. A pop of coral is also mixed in with those colors to bring just the right amount of cheer.
Check out some of the other pretty things we are loving right now that all go perfectly with Neptune. With such fabulous accessories, what more could a girl ask for?
Leave a comment in this section and maybe we’ll suprise a lucky reader with her very own piece of Neptune to add to her spring wardrobe. How fun is that?
I am so proud to announce that we just launched a brand new website at www.cindab.com. As you may know, creating a new site is a HUGE project. It would not have been possible without the entire amazing cinda b team working tirelessly to get it done and I can’t thank them enough for everything. After months of designing, testing, re-designing and re-testing, we finally pushed the go button and are live. Wahooooo!
On the new site you will see new features, new information, a better store locator and easier ways to shop (plus some musings from yours truly ). We are loving all of it and hoping that you will love it just as much as we do.
Now that the huge website re-design is complete, we will be focusing on this blog, so stay tuned for more fabulous content here. In the meantime, we’d love to hear what you think of our site? Love it? We sure hope so!
We are over the moon to share with you this exciting news! Little Belle is going to be a big sister sometime in early April. And, we’ll be turning over those shades of pink to shades of blue…because its a BOY!! Stay tuned for a nursery update on how Belle’s current decor will need to shift to a new hue.
Eek, we can’t wait.
We were so excited when our Founder and Chief Creative Officer, Cinda Boomershine, was chosen to be the mystery guest on Bloomberg Television’s “Taking Stock” with Pimm Fox. Join us in the excitement and click here to watch the interview and find out more about our unique and collectable American made handbags, totes, travel bags, and accessories.
Whether you are driving to a girls weekend or flying out on a business trip, our fabulous and versatile travel bags and accessories make the perfect travel companions as you go about your adventures and excursions. Here are some helpful tips from our Founder, Cinda Boomershine, for when you’re ready to head out the door and explore our wonderful world:
Invest in a good travel set. This may seem obvious (and a bit self serving coming from me), but I promise it makes a world of difference. My go-to set is our Carry-On Rolly and Super Tote II. This combo is perfect for just about every type of trip I make.
Go heavy on accessories. When I pack I always stick to basic clothing items (think dark jeans and solid tops that layer). Then I pack tons of accessories to jazz up my outfits. Our Jewelry Case is perfect for all my bulky and over-sized jewelry. I never travel without it and always fly with it in my carry-on just to be safe.
Go miniature. Get mini sized bottles to fill with your favorite lotions and potions. They are available at your local drug store and will save tons of space in your bag. Plus, it is always nice to have the same comforts from home when you travel. And this includes your favorite toiletries. I pack my goodies in the Flight Friendly Travel Pouch so I can go right through the security checkpoint line easily and efficiently.
Pack a clutch. The right clutch can make all the difference in dressing up a basic outfit. Plus, it is always nice to have a small purse option so you aren’t always lugging a large purse around. I love the Melrose Clutch as a versatile, hands-free option that takes me from day into night with ease.
As you might be able to tell, we can’t wait for the fall season to kick in. Grabbing a scarf on your way out, sipping a Pumpkin Spice Latte, and carving a pumpkin are just a few of our favorite fall activities. In case you are still transitioning your summer wardrobe into fall, we put a look together that will set the tone for fall fabulousness! A cozy, chunky sweater paired with a scarf draping over your shoulders will keep you warm and stylish during your favorite fall pastimes. Wear a casual chic pair of skinnies and slip on a pair of leg lengthening leather boots. Finally, pull your look together with the Mod Tortoise Market Tote and some sassy shades (keeping them safe and protected in our Mod Tortoise Sunglasses Case).
a. You know its time to wear a scarf when there is dew on the grass and you breathe in that crisp Autumn air. Add a scarf to your fall wardrobe for the ultimate fall fashion statement.
b. Did you know that acorns fall when the tree has not received enough rain water. This helps preserve what water the tree has left. The reason why we love acorns is because some say this is a sign of an early fall!
c. Set a festive tone with a table piled with pumpkins, carve spooky characters out of pumpkins, or make your favorite pumpkin recipe!
d. It is a magical time when the leaves start to turn into the rich colors of fall!
e. A favorite fall activity that comes to mind is picking the best looking apples at your local apple orchard. Take them home and fill the house with the wonderful smell of apple dumplings or Grandma’s scrumptious apple pie.
f. We wait for it all year, the Pumpkin Spice Latte that is. It’s like taking a sip of fall.
