A Coat for all Seasons

blog_beauty1Even though the chilly weather might be starting to fade, a warm, cozy, highly fashionable lightweight coat should always be within reach. Here’s our new favorite: The Elin Coat in “eggplant,” by Juleselin is a one-of-a-kind find. With ruffles, buttons, pockets, a hood, and slightly puffed upper sleeves, this jacket is a stand-alone garment. The color is rich and deep, and the cut is flattering on all body types. Created by Julia Burnbaum, a local designer of California, “the collection is made of organic cotton, bamboo and recycled fabrics,” says the oakandco.com website where the item is currently being sold. (It's also being sold at Saffron and Genevieve in the Oak & Co pop up shop.) Paired with skinny jeans and Greenbees boots, you’ll have an outfit that will catch anyone’s eye. Stroll through the farmer’s market in your new look, take a day trip to the city and watch as passersby give you the once, twice, three times over as they admire your style. Trust us, this is one fine investment, for one fine day.

 


The Elin Coat by Juleselin is $328 and sells at oakandco.com or at Saffron and Genevieve, 901B Soquel Ave., Santa Cruz, saffronandgenevieve.com, 462-4506.

Sugar: The New Tobacco?

Proposed bill would require warning labels on sugary drinks Will soda and other saccharine libations soon come with a health warning? They will if it’s up to our state senator, Bill Monning (D-Carmel). On Feb. 27, Monning proposed first-of-its-kind legislation that would require a consumer warning label be placed on sugar-sweetened beverages sold in California. SB 1000, also known as the Sugar-Sweetened Beverages Safety Warning Act, was proposed to provide vital information to consumers about the harmful effects of consuming sugary drinks, such as sodas, sports drinks, energy drinks, and sweetened teas.
