Bet you guys didn’t know our favorite jean company, Cult of Individuality, also made shirts. And we also bet you didn’t think it’d have an adorable little surfer baby on it either? Well this surfer baby white v-neck has summer printed all over it with a vintage picture of a tiny beach babe. Can’t you just smell the coppertone now?
It looks like you Wallflower’s are digging our newest line, Darling, so much so that we have restocked more of the crochet tunics, but this time in white and coral! Crochet is one of our favorite boho, summer looks and can easily be dressed up or down. You have a choice between a longer style with the white or a crop style with the coral. Whether you need a beach cover-up or a long top to pair over your favorite Cult of Individuality cords, this tunic’s got you covered, literally.
We are really excited to introduce our new line of artisan jewelry called MendoCruz! Pure, simple, and elegant are some words that come to mind with this collection of gold and silver earrings. This whole collection is long and lovely with hoop and oval shapes adorned with turquoise and other delicate stones. Owner and artist, Lindsey Graham-Jones mentored under two Mendocino jewelry artists and then went onto complete a jewelry program here in Santa Cruz, hence the name! According to Lindsey, “MendoCruz was born out of the desire to craft lovely, unique and affordable jewelry for all. Wearable art that your little ones will discover someday, curiously draping themselves with, imagination running wild.” We couldn’t agree more.

When Julienne first brought in these hand-stitched, leather wallets, I eyed one in particular for a couple weeks before finally caving into it’s beauty.
