Wanderer Bracelets is the coolest brand. I'm obsessed with the adorable handmade bracelets (From Bali!) with charms made from sustainably sourced water buffalo bone. The nylon thread is soft yet durable, and the range of designs is great. It's so easy to find one (or seven) that resonate with you. I gave my mom the peace sign- it was her favorite, and she's been obsessed ever since. I love the fish hook and the 'hang loose' ones, but I also love the feather. There are so many other precious designs, and the bracelets all support the best cause!
Local Bali artisans are making a livable income thanks to Wanderer Bracelets, and now I have the most adorable jewelry. Check out the bracelets here and the Wanderer Bracelet story here!
I recently reached out to MeUndies, and they sent me over a few pairs to sample. I tried the Modal Thong and the Lacie Thong. The website claims that the Modal fabric is 3x softer than cotton, and I'd definitely agree. I heavily preferred the Lacie to the other waistband, because I found the lace to be more formfitting and comfortable, but both styles are great. I threw them in the wash with the rest of my clothes and dried them normally, and they came out fine.
They're comfy and well made, but still quite cute. I really liked the Lacie and preferred it to similar lacy styles from Victoria's Secret or Aerie. I would love them to expand their color/pattern selections for the Lacie, and I would definitely buy more. The devil is in the details, and I loved the stitched-on tag on the Modal pairs, and though I'm sure lace is different to work with, I would love to see something similar on the Lacie.
Overall, I really love MeUndies, and I think anyone seeking well-made undies at a reasonable price should check them out. They also offer some loungewear that I'm dying to try, including hoodies, crewnecks, lounge pants, and joggers. I would love to see MeUndies expand to hyper comfy bralettes, but that's just my 2 cents. Check out MeUndies!
AI found this super cool online fashion retailer, Stylewe. Stylewe is so unique because it hosts all these individual designers, mainly from overseas, and allows consumers in the US access to these designers that we'd likely never know about.
A lot of the content on Stylewe is pretty avant-garde, featuring cool silhouettes and shapes that are still fairly wearable, are stuff you could totally see as streetwear during NYFW. There's also a fair portion of more daily wearable pieces too. There are more normal pieces and then edgier, cooler versions.

Stylewe is also doing huge holiday sales this month, and you can find their Black Friday and Cyber Monday in 2016 promotions here. Some of the dresses are drastically discounted and would work super well for holiday parties, through the new year.
