Shop of the Week Diffraction Fiber

Shop of the Week: Diffraction Fiber

Diffraction Fiber is our Shop of the Week, a shop based in Chicago which sells handmade pillows , coasters,  mousepads, hats, and fiber art. The pillows are made from eco-felt, which are made from recycled plastic bottles. Read on the interview as Beth shares her personal experiences in starting an online business.

What’s the inspiration behind your shop’s name? 
Well, I started with a jewelry shop named Diffraction, and I wanted something that connected the two. Ironically, after Diffraction Fiber started taking off I put the original shop on hold entirely.

Autumn in Session by Ruche + Giveaway

Style Love: Autumn in Session by Ruche + Giveaway

I am so in love with the newly released lookbook by Ruche, entitled “Autumn in Session”. Much of the outifts feature summer clothing combined with leg warmers and tights to prepare for the fall.  Photography was done by Stephanie Williams and make-up by KC Witkamp. I love all the elements about this lookbook and I would definitely welcome every piece in my wardrobe.
But that’s not all. Ruche is offering to give away this adorable Silhouette Flower Purse in Walnut and a $50 giftcard to shop at Ruche.  Just hop over Ruche blog to enter.
And here are my favorites from the lookbook:

Style Love: Beautifully Outrageous

Speaking of summer heat, Marc Jacobs’ Spring/Summer 2010 Collection has some very interesting pieces.  I’m loving all the whimsical details, the diversity of the fabric used and how creatively they have been put together. Here are my favorite looks:








Feeling the Heat of Summer

Summer is almost over but we’re only starting to feel the heat.  We are spending a week at my family’s place and despite the hot weather, I’m so happy we’re here.  How I wish we could go to the beach.  Found these sunkissed images that I’d like to share with you.  Hope you’re having a beautiful day!
