Treasures Shop // The Loo Loo Dress

IMG_4906.jpg

We're so excited to launch the first item in our shop! This beautiful dress is handmade in Nelson, BC by our friend Lauren of Loo Loo. 

We took a trip to Nelson a few weeks ago to capture the making of the dress, and we were so amazed to see it come to life. We've always been a fan of Lauren's designs and prints, so this collaboration is something we're so excited to have happen!

Lauren is the tie-dye queen, we love the shibori pattern she dyed for the sleeves of the dress.

I had to snag these shark tooth comfy pants, I've been living in them lately.

Ta-daaaa, just like that, we have a dress! This was the first product that we captured being made before our eyes, it's been so inspiring seeing artists and designers who are so good at what they do. It's really opened our eyes to supporting local businesses and has been such a fun experience learning about the process and many stages of production.

We absolutely LOVE this dress! We wanted something beachy, comfy, and chic, and Lauren totally nailed it.

Introducing Treasures Shop // Behind The Scenes

We are SO EXCITED to finally introduce you to our new blog baby - Treasures Shop

For the past few months we have been working behind the scenes in creating our very first online shop. It's funny because our blog business actually first started as a shop - If anyone remembers KALOS! Woot Woot! Throwww back! But here we are again, presenting to you a very special shop filled with exclusive handmade products we designed with many different local businesses. We are so blown away by all the creative, hard working people involved in this shop. We are so grateful for them, and SO smitten with the results! 

This week we will be launching our first 4 products, and we are delighted that we were able to go to each business (some as far as Nelson BC, Seattle, and Portland!) and watch them create the product before our eyes. Can't wait to share with you all!

Here are some behind the scenes photos (above) from our look book photo shoot we shot this past weekend. We had a blast with Cate, who was more than willing to get a bit messy with paints and powders.

This girls product is going to be our first one added to the shop [tomorrow!!] Over the next few weeks we will be adding more products to the shop. We're really excited to give each business and artist a feature on how their product is made by hand and some of the process and our involvement in it. It's been such a fun, learning, and growing experience for us, it's been such a privilege to be able to work with such talented friends and artists!

The end of our photoshoot, we got a little silly and tired, and tried to take a normal photo. (ha!) We can't wait to share our shop with you in the weeks to come, this week's blog posts will be dedicated to our first 4 products! So stay tuned to see what's coming!
