Simone Camille
is a collection of eclectic, one-of-a-kind designs that mix vintage and antique woven textiles. Designer and celebrity stylist Simone Harouche’s inspiration for the handbags comes from her own collection of antique clothing, collected over her years as a wardrobe stylist. Her stock spans all the way from 19th century dowry textiles to 1970s Thea Porter kaftans - quite impressive! Harouche began by making herself one of the bohemian-chic handbags, but after Nicole Richie, one of her clients, asked for one, requests for additional styles came rolling in. Snag yourself one of these pieces, and you might be carrying anything from a vintage doll dress to a wedding sash or a tribal costume from 19th century Morocco. So cool!

Prices range from $600 to $2,000, shop online at


kora_recycled_bangle.jpgIt’s always important to have classic pieces in your jewelry repertoire that look sophisticated on their own or can be mixed and matched with funkier styles for a different look. This bracelet by eco-friendly jewelry brand Kora definitely fits the bill, with a simple yet pretty design that will add a touch of femininity to your chunky sweaters this fall. Handmade in Kenya, the bangle consists of antiqued, recycled aluminum with wrapped brass wire.

chain_head_pieces_etsy_thumb.jpgWe never imagined wearing chain headpieces until we stumbled across these uber chic handmade pieces from Etsy seller CasstronautMeder that bring to mind a cross between a stylish hippie and a Grecian goddess. At under $25, they are an affordable way to add a funky, trendy twist to your style without breaking the bank!



We’d wear this classic, ladylike style at any time, but the fact that it’s vegan and eco-friendly makes us fall in love even more. This sophisticated handbag by Susan Nichole is the perfect every day work bag, with super soft yet durable vegan leather, five inside pockets for organization, and chic gold hardware. Susan Nichole uses only recyclable and recycled materials, and all handbags are ethically produced in the US or abroad under fair trade standards. We are thrilled to see that more brands are moving in this direction!
