Belts and goin' old school!
written by Heidi Riedel, September 11, 2010
I absolutely love wearing belts, I have a favorite peacock feather belt that always makes my simple dresses gorgeous. Also when im wearing a white tank and tuck it in to my light denim jeans its just so perfect to add a belt and a cute cardigan :) Loveee bracelets and necklaces but its never both at the same time; either one or the other. I definitely would love this bracelet. One it's beautiful, and two, it reminds me of my favorite time of the year, fall. :)

I'm obsessed with hand crafted jewelry. I especially love pieces that include vintage flea market finds in the mix. It is wonderful when a unique piece of jewelry can start a conversation with another kindred spirt. The bracelet is a job well done. A perfect color combo to transition into to fall with. Who ever wins this beauty will be lucky indeed!

Sweaters - all year round.
written by Elise Heidy, September 10, 2010
I've found that I love sweaters. In winter, in spring, even in summer! I love that a sweater dresses an outfit up, or is a practical tool too to keep you warm. This bracelet would go very well with a sweater.

I'm pretty much obssessed with anything vintage/thrifted. I love how every piece has a past life and story, plus you don't look like everyone else. It's something truly unique!!!
Obsessed with wearable art
written by Whitney Wilde, September 08, 2010
Why is it that "women of a certain age" here in Santa Cruz look funky chic and unique?

There is no other place on Earth I could get away with looking like a walking art piece, yet here in Santa Cruz, I am just one of many. For me, it expresses a mood or who I am that day, whether it is a custom, handmade necklace of a heart with wings or my sweater embroidered with sea life. Maybe it is just the gypsy layering of garments. All combine to make me a walking art gallery of Santa Cruz.

The Thought Form of Solution

It’s our last week of Leo before the sun enters Virgo (next Friday/Saturday). The planets this week make complex patterns and relationships (vibrational cadences and rhythms) with the outer planets, mainly Neptune—the planet that veils, obscures, protects and finally refines us. Neptune offers us entrance into a deeply spiritual sense of comfort and solace. Neptune is the personality ruler of Pisces (saviors of the world) and soul ruler of Cancer (world mother). “The fish goddesses who leapt from earth (Virgo) to water (Pisces) unitedly give birth to the Fish God (Christ, the Soul) who introduces the waters of life  (Neptune & Aquarius) into the ocean of substance (matter, mother bringing light to the world. Thus does Neptune work.” (Esoteric Astrology).

Best of Santa Cruz County

The 2013 Santa Cruz County Readers' Poll and Critics’ Picks It’s our biggest issue of the year, and in it, your votes—more than 6,500 of them—determined the winners of The Best of Santa Cruz County Readers’ Poll. New to the long list of local restaurants, shops and other notables that captured your interest: Best Beer Selection, Best Locally Owned Business, Best Customer Service and Best Marijuana Dispensary. In the meantime, many readers were ever so chatty online about potential new categories. Some of the suggestions that stood out: Best Teen Program and Best Web Design/Designer. But what about: Dog Park, Church, Hotel, Local Farm, Therapist (I second that!) or Sports Bar—not to be confused with Bra. Our favorite suggestion: Best Act of Kindness—one reader noted Café Gratitude and the free meals it offered to the Santa Cruz Police Department in the aftermath of recent crimes. Perhaps some of these can be woven into next year’s ballot, so stay tuned. In the meantime, enjoy the following pages and take note of our Critics’ Picks, too, beginning on page 91. A big thanks for voting—and for reading—and an even bigger congratulations to all of the winners. Enjoy.  -Greg Archer, EditorBest of Santa Cruz County Readers’ Poll INDEX

 

Have Mercy!

Looking for a frisky summer wine at a reasonable price? Look no further than Mercy Vineyards’ 2013 Sauvignon Blanc ($20). Richly textured “with an exotic flavor profile,” the wine reveals aromas of honeydew melon and honeysuckle, with anise appearing as a star attraction. Smidgeons of pineapple and honeycomb add a touch of sexiness to this well-balanced, easy-drinking wine, which pairs well with a variety of cuisine —especially ceviche, calamari and other not-too-heavy foods.
