Style Inspiration: Edie Sedgwick

GET “IT GIRL” EDIE SEDGWICK’S STYLE

edie

Actress/heiress/model/muse…Edie was considered one of the largest style icons during the 1960’s. She was unlike any other and her style didn’t hide it! As the infamous Andy Warhol’s muse, her eccentricities were always open to the public eye and captured by film. Today her style is still dominated with bold statement jewelry and clothing. Edie’s style is distinguished by basic colors paired with eye-popping jewelry. Want to re-create her quintessential mod vibe? It’s all about the leggings, bold tunic tops and flashy earrings. Get the look today at Swell.

Pain Is Just Weakness Leaving The Body

We at Swell like to think of ourselves as an active bunch.

Any given day of the week, come lunchtime, you will probably witness a large group of us heading to a local gym OR hitting up a nearby trail OR heading to the beach to catch some waves…

 On the weekends, when waves suck, a lot of us roll to the mountains.

 California spoils us… Yes, we know.

In classic ‘Jackass’ fashion though, sometimes we hurt ourselves in pursuit of THE DREAM. For the last three Mondays, our cr3w has been struck down by the not-so-forgiving extreme sport Gods.

 Let our pain = your gain.

 Enjoy!

 (And please kids…don’t try this at home…)
