A Walk in the Woods in Waxed Cotton

  Call me old fashioned: Hearkening back to centuries-old Irish farms and the rainy wilds of British isles, something about the storied construction and classic look of a well-made waxed cotton coat gets me every time. As romances tend to go, though, I’ve found good waxed canvas can be awfully tough to find — made more difficult if you’re on the hunt for hardworking, ethical options that are tailored for women. Enter Portland-bred Bridge & Burn’s Outsider Collection, which offers one solid line up of thoughtfully designed, impeccably detailed waxed outerwear that ranges from lightweight to extra toasty. Some background: Bridge & Burn was founded by a computer scientist turned independent designer who’s a little obsessed with attention to detail, craft, value, and quality. Half a decade ago he had trouble finding each of those traits in an affordable jacket, so started crafting his own gear, built to withstand the Pacific Northwest’s mercurial weather. The Outsider Collection mirrors that pragmatic, independent streak. Combining original British Millerain waxed canvas with Polartec Thermal Pro fleece, men’s and …

Black and Blue: Cuyana Silk Dress and Loeffler Luz Sandals

When hunting for closet staples I tend to agonize over nice dresses and nice shoes. Both are investment pieces and rightfully so – the best pieces in your closet should especially be meant to last – worn in and worn well, season over season. I’ve landed on two keepers between Cuyana, the San Francisco-based lean closet brand started by two friends, and Loeffler Randall, the shoe company founded by a husband and wife who started designing the elegant, effortless shoes they couldn’t find elsewhere.

Tvachia Leather Co: Give + Get Giveaway

This season I’m excited to be collaborating with local friends Tvachia Leather Co. to share their new gorgeous collection and to give away two of their beautiful, drum-dyed bags. Based in Atlanta, Tvachia designs rich, minimal bags that are handmade in Calcutta. The name Tvachia comes from “tvacha,” the Hindi word for leather, and at the company’s core is a focus on quality, detail, and a generous spirit. Tvachia is a long-time supporter of Asha for Education, a non-profit organization aiming to close the equality gap in India, where each pebbled leather bag is hand-built by Calcuttan artisans. Their current collection hopes to inspire life, love, simplicity, and giving. In keeping with that message, one Rose & Fig reader will receive two Tvachia bags of your choice: One to keep, and one to give to a friend. To enter: Follow @roseandfig and @tvachia on Instagram, then tag someone special in a comment on this photo letting them know why you’re thankful for their friendship. Each comment counts as an individual entry, so the more generous …

Into the Forest: Lake Seed, Georgia

With the mercury rising past 100 in our neck of the woods, we thought it was high time to head out of Atlanta and into the mountains. The tonic of wildness was such a welcomed salve for the mind and body as we trekked up to the Chattahoochee National Forest this past weekend.

Sustainable Jewelry Sharing: Rocksbox Subscription

Yes you do, because starting now that girl is y-o-u, and m-e too. And if y-o-u know m-e, you’ve already guessed that the whole bit is going to be tailored to your tastes, sustainably minded, a great deal, and sprinkled with surprises. Long love story short: Rocksbox, a San Francisco-based startup, sends tailored boxes of designer jewelry with the option to borrow, buy, or swap out a set as often as you’d like. Pieces are from a stable of more than thirty established and indie designers (folks like Loren Hope, Gorjana, CC Skye, Jenny Bird, Wanderlust + Co, Vanessa Mooney, and House of Harlow).
