New at SWELL: Pura Vida Bracelets

pura-vida1
Something worth throwing an (ice cream) arm party for…Pura Via Bracelets have arrived at SWELL!
These unique handmade bracelets do more than just sit there and look pretty (although they do a great job at that), the Pura Vida fully provides jobs for over 40+ Costa Ricans that we have taken out of poverty and provided full time jobs. Pretty sweet if you ask us. And because Pura Vida believes so strongly in giving back to the oceans that give us so much, for every Pura Vida Bracelet sold, they donate 1% back to The Surfrider Foundation through 1% for the Planet. Pura Vida!

Rock The Bells Style Post by Guest Blogger, Leah.

Every so often there is a style that sticks around for more than just one season, a year, or even a decade. In my opinion bell bottoms are one of those amazing styles that the fashion world has never stopped loving. Bells look absolutely perfect for any occasion and can be styled with almost anything! I love rocking the bells, and with Novella Royale making the most brilliant prints and using the softest fabrics… I don’t want to take mine off. I love pairing these bad boys with western boots and a fur vest, but for this fall outing I pulled out the jean jacket and retro heels to add a little vintage love to these already dreamy pants. The bells are back yet again and even better than my mom remembers them being in the 70’s… We have the creative minds behind brands like Novella Royale to thank for that!

Mini Dressing. Style Post by Guest Blogger, Leah.

I am a firm believer in the notion that a girl can never have too many dresses… There are so many different events and moments that all call for various styles of dresses. It is always exciting though when a certain dress can be versatile enough for any number of different moments. My newest obsession is this flowy mini dress from Somedays Lovin’ with beautiful bell sleeves. I feel this style of dress can work for so many occasions. This piece can easily be adorned with all different styles of jewelry to fit the style of your destination. Since I was going for a more relaxed vibe I simply slipped on a pair of western booties and put my feather headpiece in my hair to complete this casual, earthy/hippie look. The great thing about this dress is that I can wear it anywhere, but it still has more personality than a “little black dress”. While it could go anywhere, for this day I felt like a carefree gypsy prancing around in the fields with this perfect printed dress.
