DIY: Halloween Mermaid-Style

Procrastination at its best is when you have TWO DAYS before Halloween and grab everything around your house to create your own costume!

For all you merbabes at heart, this one is for you. Put your own twist on it, it’s quick and affordable — not to mention you could use it for so many other occasions, because who doesn’t need a crown on a regular basis. BOW DOWN, boyfriends.

– Wire ribbon that you will cut into 3 ft. strips >> We recommend Seafoam Blues & Greens, we also mixed in sparkly ribbon!
– Assorted shells & Starfish
– Hot glue gun + glue sticks
– Scissors


-Knot three pieces of ribbon together at their ends.
-Braid the 3 ribbon pieces to fit the circumference of your head (a little over a foot should do).
– Knot the braid at the end.

– Glue your shells onto the braided ribbon
– We encourage you to get creative & use more than shells. These crowns look great with beads, sequins, flowers and any other embellishments that fit your mermaid style!
– Cone-shaped shells are our favorite because they make that royal crown shape!

– Tie or glue extra pieces of ribbon to the end knot of the braid
– Join both ends of the braid and glue together


VOILA, a crown fit for a MerBabe 😉 Thank you to all the Maui girls that came out to our DIY class in Pa’ia and getting your creativity on with us!

Hamptons, you romantic you

Shore Break Hipster Strap

Although New York has a reputation for ruthlessness and a knack for cold encounters we are here to show you that there’s more to this beautiful place than just the Concrete Jungle.

Taking you back to the Hamptons, our girl Casey Evans and her SL bandits show you The Hamptons’ romantic, warm side.


Even NY babes yearn for summer’s everlasting touch. From sand and sawgrass to light breezes and blue skies, this is where the gypsy soul finds serenity.san_lorenzo_06san_lorenzo_03 Kona Lillie Gardersan_lorenzo_04   Kona Lillie Hipster Strapsan_lorenzo_13    Lime Braided Hipster Strap

Tell us it will last forever, hold us tight with closed eyes — this endless summer that lives always in our souls.

New York, you son of a gun, I think we’ve fallen in love.
