So digging this babe’n 70′s-esque look book by one of our fave Byron Bay labels Amilita. It has the vintage 70s stylings of Sara Afonso and photographer Dave Hauserman written all over it.

And word on the street is that Amilita is opening a boutique just opposite us on Fletcher Street. We couldn’t be more excited to this addition to our little corner of Byron, which has become over the last year or so quite the little must-visit shopping strip! We’ll keep you in the loop on when they open up officially, but in the meantime shop the new collection here.

Owning my own label, I tend not to own any jewellery that’s not either by my own label or super rare vintage, but in the past 5 years the only other piece of jewellery I’ve acquired that wasn’t Spell or vintage was by Meeshka. It’s intricate, and hand made, and tribal and rare. Mish’s latest collection is infused with influences of ancient tribal adornment, and each piece carries a celestial namesake in various languages from around the globe. Made from brass and sterling silver and threaded with afghan stones, turquoise and heishi shells, they’re the kind of pieces that you wear un-layered in their own perfect simplicity and intricacy. Divine. And worn here perfectly by ‘she of the Sun’ muse Annalise McLachlan, no stranger to a piece of divine jewellery ; )

 

DIY: Spell Sewing Kit.

DIY: Make your own Spell Sewing Kit.
By Dahli Briedis (Our youngest sister – Upcycling Queen & part time DIY’er.)

The next best thing to smelling the fairytale aroma of Spell’s Woodland Nymph candle is crafting the leftover jar into this cute little sewing kit.

Handmade pressies for my sisters go back to when I was a kid. One year, sticky taping together some toothpicks to make a jewellery box, and later orchestrating a little treasure hunt that took them around the house, the final clue revealing a needle to pop the balloons I’d hung on the mantle piece, releasing little gifts inside. I didn’t have any money so I showed my love with time and effort. Today, not much has changed. I made this DIY Sewing Kit for Lizzy when I noticed she didn’t own a single needle or thread!

How to make:

• An empty Spell candle jar – its flat top and removable plastic seal makes for the perfect pin cushion, a circle of wool felt to glue onto the inside of the seal, a handful of unspun wool for stuffing.

• I lined the lid with coloured wool and glossy unspun silk but you could use anything to spice it up like shells or dried flowers.

• Search out vintage wooden reels of cotton and old books of needles to fill the jar – op shops / thrift stores are perfect for picking up gorgeous vintage sewing supplies.

• Finally, some finishing decorations like feathers and a turquoise stone to string around the lid.

Byron Bay Surf Festival presents Tipi Pop Up Block 2014 Lookbook
VW Beatle ℅ Children of the Tribe @childrenofthetribe

My favourite thing about Byron Bay is the incredible creative community that it breeds. Being the surf capital of Australia, it’s no surprise that the team behind the Byron Bay Surf Festival have decided to set up in our little haven for the weekend, to bring you all things, surf, fashion, culture and music. A stand out feature of last years festival was the Tipi Pop Up – it was amazing, walking along the beachfront lined with gorgeous white tipi’s, sticking your head into each tipi for a dose of surf inspired creativity. Think vintage inspired surfboards and skateboards, gorgeous iconic Byron-style fashion – it really is like no market I’d ever experienced before. You can imagine the instagram tipi spam… hehe, shall we say hash tag  #byronbaysurffestival when posting?
Two of Byron Bays finest creatives, Lex Weinstein and Carly Brown, came together to produce a story of photographs that is so quintessentially Byron. The family play times, the couple who spend their weekends surfing, skating, relaxing and the threads, perfect mix of beachside and rebel cool. Shop the lifestyle at the Tipi Pop Up Block at this years Festival on Saturday 25th October.
Featured Brands to Shop + Experience on Sat 25 October: Banks, Sanuk, Golden Breed, Moonjelly, Hippy Tree, Children of the Tribe, The Beach People, Rue Stiic, Free People, Patagonia, Sanuk, Kiss Max, TOMS, Smile
