cute yoga clothes.

June 4, 2010

I ordered the green capri pants from Kaya Yoga Wear {bottom, right photo}…and they just arrived. I LOVE them! They are made from a really thick fabric, and fit like a dream….no muffin top, and no bagging in the booty or stretching out. I wish I had ordered some more! The tops in her shop are really cute as well.

If only I hadn’t screwed up my shoulder, I would actually be able to wear them while doing yoga!! I’m out for a few weeks doing physical therapy. Problem is, I think I’m still 25, and my body is telling me NO. *Sigh*

Tees for your Tuesday! I’d like to share a few fun tee-shirt sites with you…

The first is Rotem Gear….I’ve “known” designer R. Jean Roth for years online…and have been a fan of her tees for years as well. I especially love her Jewish and Asian themed items…the boba tea is my new fave!. {And, for the record, I do feel a bit strange admitting that I have online “friends”…but she’s super nice!}:

The next brand is from Ex-Boyfriend Collection. My son is actually crazy about everything on their site…and in my shopping cart is the Goat Tee shirt…I think it’s hilarious. By the way, I feel old because cassette tapes are considered “retro”, but I like the graphic:

Last but not least are a couple of tees from Anomalous. Made by an adorable young couple…I love the edginess of their shirts…AND that a portion of each sale goes to a different charity, depending on the shirt!:

my dear thing.

From Brooklyn, mydearthing is fantastic indie clothing label designed by Lauren Jones, a former knitwear designer for Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie…{this gal knows her stuff}. All the pieces have great style, and are so wearable!! I love every single piece

There’s a great interview about Lauren on the blog kaKofonie of si(gh)lenS {looks like Lauren and I share the same taste in music…especially!}…I suggest you check it out!

I love the clothes made by Jacqueline at California based Lamixx. They are stylish, wearable and at a fantastic price point. I love the off-the-shoulder top {above, right}…it’s totally “me”…or, at least in my head, I think I can look as sexy as that model!!  Great pieces, all of them!

And, here’s the best news, Lamixx is offering a 10% discount to you, my fabulous readers…it’s for the next two days, so make sure you place your order soon! Just enter “nonpareil” at checkout…hurrah for deals!

Hurrah for the internet!! I just love getting to know gals from far-flung places…like Puppy and Chris from Chria, in Brazil. They are long-time readers of my blog, and have a super cute blog of their own, as well as an online shop. Their shop oozes with cuteness…pillows, purses, scrapbooks…lots of hearts, flowers and bright colors, all handmade with incredible detailing. I asked for some photos, and they sent me the layout above! They also make custom nurse uniforms…adorable!

Everything is so festive…get me out of this freezing cold and off to Brazil!
