our choice: 2016

“Anybody can be unhappy. We can all be hurt. You don’t have to be poor to need something or somebody. Rednecks, hippies, misfits – we’re all the same. Gay or straight? So what? It doesn’t matter to me. We have to be concerned about other people, regardless.”

creating women’s clothing has historically only clicked for me when we design something that i want to wear.

Muscle Shoals

usually when you go to see a movie, you have some idea about what you are getting ready to watch. however a few weeks ago at billy reid’s shindig,  i knew i was getting ready to watch a documentary on muscle shoals, but i had no idea what i was about to witness and learn.

 

it is hands down, one of the best documentaries about southern culture. i was shocked to learn so much about one of our neighboring towns that legends from the rolling stones and lynyrd skynyrd, to aretha franklin and wilson pickett came together with local muscians to produce some of the most memorable sounds of the south. do yourself a huge favor and go see this movie at the belcourt this weekend.

consumption is something that we try our best not to take lightly, both as a company and as individuals. there are a number of questions we always ask when considering our next purchase: the two most important begin with quality and origin. Continue Reading…

our choice: torres

It was a few weeks ago when we first heard rumblings of a young gal by the name of Mackenzie Scott, recording under the moniker Torres. Her first album debuted recently and has received lots of love, including the likes of Pitchfork. We’re excited to check out her release show this Friday, February 8th at The Basement, and are officially entranced in her video performance of “Jealousy and I.”

our choice: new years rulin’s

Each time a new year rolls around, it seems we end up trying to set very big – and oftentimes unrealistic – goals for ourselves. Goals that are focused around an oversized challenge, a pride-boosting accomplishment, or, we wind up disregarding the idea altogether. Continue Reading…

oliveSinclair-640x538

our choice: olive and sinclair

We love a good chocolate bar. Olive and Sinclair is slow-roasted in small batches right here in Nashville. Not only is it beautifully packaged, but it tastes delicious to boot. With flavors like Cinnamon Chili, Buttermilk White and Salt & Pepper, your tastebuds will forever thank you.
