Caffeine Tees.

Jeremiah from Laughing Hyena emailed me over the weekend to share his Series 1: Caffeine tees. Besides the tees I’m digging the coffee bag packaging – a super nice touch!

He really tells it best: Laughing Hyena designs and produces creative tees for the independent thinker by deconstructing pop culture a single subject at a time. Each series highlights key components with an emphasis on typography as wearable art. In addition to the fresh and modern approach of Laughing Hyena comes a moral mission as well. A percentage of the profits from the sale of its shirts will be donated to a cause related to the “single subject” of the series. The reason is simple. Donating to a just cause, “just cause…” is a nice thing to do. All of our designs are screen printed on 100% cotton (some orgainc cotton) high quality, American made, sweatshop free t-shirts. A percentage of the profits from the sale of Series 1 will be donated to “Coffee Lifeline” a Freeplay Foundation project www.freeplayfoundation.org. This innovative project seeks to empower coffee farmers in producing countries by utilizing self-powered radios to provide access to information and education in isolated rural areas. “It’s not a hand out, it’s a hand up.”

Melissa Joy Manning Metal.

I’m loving modern, yet natural style of Melissa Joy Manning’s jewelry. By using gold, silver, semi-precious and precious stones and found objects, her line blends traditional and modern beautifully. I’m a strictly silver jewelry sort of girl, but I could definitely make an exception for some of Manning’s yellow gold pieces. Just a few of my favorites…

Capped Fingerless Gloves.

I’m wearing my first sweater of the season today which means hats, scarves and gloves can’t be that far behind. Which is good. Because I have what some might call a fascination (RE: obsession) with them. This pair of capped fingerless gloves is at the top of my list currently. Love the length!

Wrist Worms.

Loving these wrist worms for so many reasons. Our office has been chilly lately, so they’d be perfect to wear/accessorize with for work. They come in tons of different colors and styles, too!

Cappuccio.

Swoon.

The Cappuccio is perfect for fall days when a hood/scarf is definitely in order. If only it weren’t freakin’ 85º here today. (Although the model is sporting a tank. Hmmmm….)
