10 Fabulous Indie Bags You Should See!

It all starts with a need: so I went out a couple of days ago (date night) and I was wearing this completely fabulous 70s getup with a micro mini denim skirt and a paisley shirt, my favorite suede sandals and I couldn’t find a single handbag to match the look!

By the time I finished searching, my closet was thrown out all over the bedroom floor and I had to stomp over a stew of dresses, tees and such spiced generously with belts, scarves and bags. All that for nothing – I had not found the right bag so I settled for a small multicolored Peruvian bag. And promised myself I would turn the internet upside down for the right bag to wear! Long story short, here’s what I found and I need to share – fabulous handbags, completely off the mainstream radar:

Dwayne The Rock Johnson’s Panerai Watch And Aviator Sunglasses Survive San Andreas Fault

Right in the middle of an action-packed scene in an abundantly graphic and fast movie you focus in on just one item on the big screen: a watch. From that close-up moment on, the movie has a new meaning and you find a new drive to go through every scene and every detail: more images of the watch in question.

Ok. It might be just me? Or not? Anyway – with Summer come a handful of jampacked action movies and although I do not favor the type, Natural Disasters (or Alien Invasions) are among those year after year! The Rock (Dwayne Johnson) headlines San Andreas directed by Brad Peyton. I won’t spoil the action plot – but I will say this much: San Andreas’ Dwayne The Rock Johnson is wearing a Panerai Luminor 1950 Submersible Watch!

Ralph Lauren’s Wimbledon Ball Boys And Girls Look Dull

Wimbledon is not only the oldest tennis tournament and the most prestigious but also the only Grand Slam on grass court! Quite the particularities for the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club’s tennis tournament, wouldn’t you agree?

Even the general rules aren’t bent at Wimbledon: all the players must wear white. All white from head to toes! Although most of world’s tennis tournaments have long changed and forgotten the all-white-equipment, there’s not possible to get away without a warning on Wimbledon’s green grass court if your tennis getup is less than 90% white! But that rule doesn’t apply to the Ball Boys and Girls, though! For 9 years, the Wimbledon officials and Ball Boys and Girls are dressed by Ralph Lauren!

Stripes For Your Home: Lemlem & Anthro

Remember the gorgeous Liya Kebede? Besides looking down on us, mortals, from skyscraper-sized ad billboards and caressing the catwalks with her feline demarche, she’s also involved in countless charities and militant activities besides being an actress and a mother! However, it’s not about all that today: it’s about your home and how you can ethically decorate it with Lemlem!

Lemlem – you may remember we talked about this brand a while back when highlighting the Born Free campaign – is proudly ‘Made in Ethiopia’, supporting the local weaving tradition and hard hand work of local weavers. Going beyond the clothes and accessories for both women and kids, Lemlem by Liya Kebede now extends into homewear (with a little help from Anthropologie).
