The Stripe Launch Party.

To celebrate the launch of The Stripe (as well as my fifth anniversary of blogging), I wanted to do something special, and so I decided to throw a party last Thursday. A few days later, I’m still pinching myself looking through the photos and seeing how well everything came together (and how many people came out!) I couldn’t have done any of it without the help of my friend Alex (she does this for a living) or our amazing venue, Sweethaus (they went over and above… hello, DIY macaron station!)

Stripe Finds // Little discoveries you'll love

Style

This is, most definitely, the perfect striped t-shirt. The thick fabric won’t cling, and it’s incredibly well made (especially when you consider its under-$30 price tag.) It’s available in five color combinations, and while I’m partial to the cream/navy, I love them all.

Beauty

I discovered Mister Marvelous by Byredo, rather accidentally: I had a bunch of samples and thought I was putting on something else. Alas, I fell in love with the warm and woody fragrance. Though it’s meant for the boys, the neroli flower + green lavender make it a nice choice for the ladies, too!

Jewel Box

I don’t remember the last time I received as many compliments on a piece of jewelry as I do when wearing these ear crawlers. They are just so perfect. Subtle and delicate, while still making a statement. And to think… they’re only $28!

travel

I’ve long been a fan of Perpetual Shade’s sleep masks (see my post about them here!) and was delighted to discover “PS,” their less expensive line. Lined in cotton (instead of silk), this rose gold oversized sleep mask is luxe… without breaking the bank.
