So many things are intertwining for me these days.
What it is to be sexy and strong and own it. To be wise but playful.
I think these themes are always being revisited in a woman's life.
Each era brings a different version of it and new perspectives.
Of course, what we face today is a particularly galvanizing time.
We're finding that we have to remind ourselves that strength has many characteristics.
Feline Panthera: they are territorial and generally solitary but social animals...I love this contradiction.
I love to identify with felines in their knowing ways. Their sleekness, their prowess...and their affection. There is something that draws you to them.
Yet. You have to approach with caution.
All of these descriptors can easily be matched to the love I have for my 1968 Cougar and beautiful cars in general. A beautiful car gives back. It can make you feel connected to things that you don't always feel, and see things that often escape you...and inspire you.
Every day I am inspired by all the women (and men) of so many generations, lifestyles, religions, and beliefs banding together to fight for our rights to be all of these things. To fight not to be pre-defined and funneled into a man-made design of a woman.
To maintain our right to be sexy and mysterious and make bold choices. To be strong mothers, daughters, sisters and wives no matter what we choose. To not be silenced.
There is so much power in love. May it pounce the love of power.
Follow us on Instagram to see our Valentines Specials this week!
We have a couple sweet surprises in store for you.
The latest scent from La Curie is in stock and is, of course, sublime. Odyssey is a moonage daydream of a scent: liquid ambar, astroid sap, purified air, white vinyl, nostalgia, candied comet dust, and utopian dreams makes up the profile of this latest lovely offering from our favorite creator of scents.
We just upped the ante with our new Deluxe Earrings. They are similar to our always-popular Birdcage Earrings, with a little twist. These are made from pieces that are less available to us, and a little more one-to-three-of-a-kind.
Come down to the Mercado this Saturday, February 4th, from 6-8 PM for the annual Gem Show Trunk Show, featuring some of our favorite gals, who will be on hand with their gorgeous wares. Be sure to stop in (we will be open until 8!) and see us, enjoy a little bubbly, and pick up something for you or your sweetheart.
We all love our pets: dogs, cats, horses, birds, and more. They pick us up when we're down, show us unconditional love, and are part of our families. Because we love them—like really, really love them—we would like to show it by donating 10% of our sales from Friday, February 10th through February 14th to Pima Animal Care Center (PACC).
We would like to support their expansion effort, because so many of us have found family members there, and they do their best to save so many animals in our community. Come in and help us support their desperately needed expansion with your purchase, and show some love to these smaller members of our community.
For more info on PACC and how our donation will help them, check out their website HERE.
The Rialto Theatre is near and dear to our hearts. We've worked there, played there, seen some of our favorite bands there, and we are always happy to donate pieces to their Fundraiser Gala. This year's gala is on Saturday, February 18th, and includes a silent auction, along with some serious fun, music, food, and community.
