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*

tee for tue. http://nonpareilblog.com/2010/03/tee-for-tue/ Tue, 23 Mar 2010 22:39:08 +0000 http://nonpareilblog.com/?p=1395 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!:

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 kexp.org!}…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!

handmade brazilian sweetness. http://nonpareilblog.com/2010/01/handmade-brazilian-sweetness/ http://nonpareilblog.com/2010/01/handmade-brazilian-sweetness/#comments Tue, 19 Jan 2010 23:37:11 +0000 http://nonpareilblog.com/?p=1280

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!

hawaiian style. http://nonpareilblog.com/2010/01/hawaiian-style/ http://nonpareilblog.com/2010/01/hawaiian-style/#comments Mon, 04 Jan 2010 20:57:36 +0000 http://nonpareilblog.com/?p=1252

My head is still in Hawaii. I’ve been home for a week now, but am having a tough time adjusting back to freezing temps…brr…

Just one more find from Hawaii for you…I found the cutest shop in one of my favorite little towns in Kauai. It’s called A. Ell Designs, and it is located in Kapaa. The owner, Angelique, sews her clothing right there in her shop…I bought super-soft bamboo tee shirts for my daughter and myself. Her shop is bright and cheery and full of handmade goods by all sorts of great local designers. What a find! She carries a few items on her site…or her Etsy shop as well.

cute coats for chilly weather. http://nonpareilblog.com/2009/11/cute-coats-for-chilly-weather/ http://nonpareilblog.com/2009/11/cute-coats-for-chilly-weather/#comments Wed, 04 Nov 2009 20:03:24 +0000 http://nonpareilblog.com/?p=1179 denovostyle

Can you tell that I’m trying to mentally prepare myself for winter?! I’ve found more fabulous indie-made coats…this time, from De Novo. The designer writes that she started her coat making career making coats for her dog at age 7! How sweet! I LOVE the coat on the bottom right…

You can check out more styles on her website, too!

What kind of cuteness are the tees and plush from Belgium based Plush?!! Their little creatures have such great character. Their sizes run from 3-6 months all the way up to 6 years. So cute!

I love the photos too…aren’t those kids are adorable! Oh how much I’d have to pay to get my dishwater-blond to look that gorgeous…ha ha!

I’m loving all of the indie clothing designers that are popping up on Etsy these days. Need It is a great example, and I especially love the cozy looking cardigans….I can’t believe I’m already jonesin’ for fall clothes…remind me of this when I’m complaining about the winter weather, would ya?!

That’s right, people, Kansas. Erin Leigh Heart always has something new and cute in her shop of handmade clothes…from Lawrence, Kansas! Right now, I’m loving the charcoal maxi dress {bottom, left}. She also has a great blog where you can see her newest styles when she adds them…
