Austin-based Dimovi designer Amanda Dimova grew up around shoes - her parents owned a shoe company and her first job was folding shoe boxes to earn her allowance. Now she uses her inherited skills to create her own collection of comfortable yet stylish footwear. You won’t find sky-high heels in this line - it’s all about cushiony soles that mold to fit your feet. Dimovi shoes feature natural rubber soles and only ethical leather products, so you can truly feel good about wearing them! For more information on the collection, visit
Melanie Auld’s jewelry is a favorite of industry insiders and fashion editors because of her ability to create costume jewelry that is bold but also elegant. Her statement earrings especially caught our eye this season, making us think: how could an outfit be complete without an amazing set of bling? Visit to shop the collection.
We love finding pieces on Etsy that we know will instantly become wardrobe staples - especially because they’re usually one of a kind! This gorgeous patent leather clutch is made in London by seller frenchenglish, and it’s a must-buy because it will take you all the way through summer and right into fall. How chic would this color be with fall’s burgundy hues?

This season, animal motifs are everywhere: on tees, dresses, scarves - you name it! But we especially love this bird print dress by Maeve, available at Anthropologie. The print is colorful and different, yet on a classic silhouette that you can wear to any summer event.
