I found the Sammy line in Barneys this winter and fell in love. It’s an amazing company that boasts creating hand-woven, embroidered and dyed scarves and linens (one of the country’s oldest traditions) while employing marginalized groups. The colors are stunning and the weave of the scarves is full and soft, making them season-less. Their small leather pouches are also amazing and have gorgeous tied dyed patterns in organic colors. I think it’s so important to support the creative endeavors of cultures globally and will always prefer to purchase a quality item from a company like Sammy over that of a “big name”.

I stopped by Karmaloop on Newbury St. with my boyfriend today and found my dream pair of Nike Lo Dunks. But, this story is not about this brilliant pair of kicks because unfortunately I have a tendency to fall for the mens’ styles that don’t fit my women’s size 7.5 foot. Instead, I’ll talk about one of the t-shirts my boyfriend got from the label Sons of Liberty, named after the gang of American patriots who led the Boston Tea party and the rebellion against the Loyalists and the British. An adaptation of the original illustration that represented the crew graces the front of this bold red T. My boyfriend is a total New England-er history buff so this find made his day. And to top it off, due to some clever cross promotional scheming on Karmaloop’s part, we also got a free slice of Upper Crust pizza!
