Win It and Wear It—Oct. 13

blog_beautyIn this week’s Win It and Wear It contest, we feature a stylish, charming necklace from Stripe, a Downtown Santa Cruz retailer on Walnut Street. Dangling from a gold chain are three enticing charms—a bird to remind you to take flight, a gem because you’re worth it, and a dagger, for, well, getting to the heart of things. To enter the contest, leave a comment at this Stripe necklace blog and tell us about something in beauty or fashion that you’re obsessed with. The contest ends Oct. 19 and the winner will be announced on Oct. 20.


Stripe, a romantic, vintage-inspired store, sells gifts, clothing, jewelry and more. We just swung by the store and here are a few of our current obsessions (in addition to this lovely necklace): fingerless gloves by local company, Nuala; infinity scarves from Made by Lex; a slew of candles by Lucia; several to die for blouses from Dear Creatures; leather cuffs with a broach from Nuala; and enticing, creative, inspiring journals hand-made by the staff at Stripe. Take a look. Stripe, 107 Walnut Ave., Santa Cruz, 421-9252, stripedesigngroup.com.

Beautiful necklace. It reminds me of the Katniss Everdeen, the Mockingjay in the Hunger Games series of books.

I just got back from a vacation in Germany where scarves and Converse sneakers are big. The scarves are both lovely and funky, with irregular edges, multiple fabrics, lace trim. Definitely had to bring some home with me!

I, too, like to fly to the heart of things; therein lies the brilliant truth, which really does set all free. This necklace is *gorgeous* and poetically perfect. My beauty or fashion quest of late finds me experimenting with various, affordable and natural moisturizers. A fan of almost everything at my healthy food co-op, I splurged lately on Nerida Joy's Essential Complex Cream! ~Mara
Faux Fur!
written by Diane E., October 14, 2010
Its that time of year to get obsessed with the comfort and elegance of faux fur!! The big trend for this season is accessorizing with faux fur collars, scarves, even purses and handbags. This area deserves to see high fashion enter into the hearts and lives of beautiful women. The neatest thing is to find it at some of my favorite boutiques at downtown Santa Cruz. I love faux fur!

I've always worn the conservative small diamond heart necklace my Aunt Mardell got me for graduation and never seemed to vary much from that. However, recently I have found the beauty and fun in long chained, unique necklaces, like this! I really like the way this one looks!

The organizers of TEDx Santa Cruz don’t just talk about this year’s theme, ‘radical collaboration’—they live it

 

Pluto Retrograde, Aries New Moon, Lyrid Meteor Showers

As the Lyrid meteors, radiating from the star Vega in the Harp constellation, begin showering heaven and earth with light, Pluto, planet of transformation (or die) turns stationary retrograde (Thursday, April 16), 15 degrees Capricorn. Retrogrades have purpose, allowing humanity time to review, reassess, research and reinvent while returning to previous situations. Retrogrades are times of inner activity, seeds sown in bio-dynamically prepared soil. Pluto retrograde is the most serious and resolute of retrogrades—a pure tincture, or, as in homeopathy, a “constitutional” touching the essences of all that matters. Pluto offers deep insight into confusion or puzzlement and areas where transformation is still incomplete. It’s valuable to have one’s astrology chart to follow what area of life the major planets— especially Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto—are influencing. These outer planets have long-term and lasting effects on our psyche, inner/outer life events, how people see us and how we see and process our world. Pluto, retrograde for five months (until Sept. 24) offers deep earthquakes of change, awakens humanity to the task of building (Capricorn) the new culture and civilization, flailing our inner world about, deepening us until we transform and do things differently. Pluto is an unrelenting teacher. New moon (29 Aries) is Saturday, April 18. With the personality-building keynote, “Let form again be sought.” Mars anchors the new creative fires of Aries into our world. The New Group of World Servers participates together in the new moon festival, while also preparing for the Taurus Wesak, Buddha Full Moon Festival (May 3). Join us everyone.
