#SocksAndSandals: Style Tips From Teva

Socks and sandals have spent years doing battle against their bad reputation, and we think that’s too much time lost. “In fashion, if something is considered off-trend for long enough, there’s a good chance it will soon be revived,” agrees Teva stylist Kira Sheppard. “Whether it’s brought back in a good way or not is…

Show & Tell

Remember Show and Tell from when you a little kid back in grade school? We were thinking there was no reason that should be limited to childhood and asked our founders if they would be game for doing it on the blog from time to time. They said yes, so here we go. From our…

Richer Poorer × The Black Keys

Nothing can replace the feeling that comes from experiencing the live music of your favorite band. The lights, sounds, smells and vibrations are what make for a lasting memory.
