THE SCOUT BLOG: DESIGN, TRAVEL, FASHION, AND MORE

blog-DebsDesk-Feb-BlackHearts-header

Let’s be real, Valentine’s Day is a pretty polarizing holiday. You either love it or loathe it. And it’s nearly impossible to avoid thanks to Walgreens and CVS, Zales and Jared, and the omnipresent social media platforms we click through all day long. Whether you’ve already laid out your dream V-Day outfit that seamlessly transitions you from work to happy hour to dinner, or you’ve added a work-from-home notification on your Outlook calendar for the entirety of next week, the masterminds at SCOUT HQ have concocted just the remedy—what we like to call a “happy”—to unite both parties. So, let’s talk about the perfect contradiction that is black hearts.

blog-BehindtheDesign-Jan-Denim-headerWith Wednesday’s release of the new Spring/Summer 2019 Collection, it’s only appropriate we shine a glorious, blue light on our newest solid: DENIM. We often forget how highly functional, seasonless, and well worth the splurge it is. Luckily for all you SCOUT cowgirls, our newest denim products won’t break the bank or split the old wallet at the seams.

It’s the third week of January, so there’s no denying everyone and their mother is in dire need of a little pick me up. Whether it’s a spicy wardrobe piece, fresh pair of sneakies, or a brand spankin’ new lint roller (lint rollers are highly underrated)—we all crave a mini-revamp to really get that New Year train chugging.

Five dining dreams, fantasies, and resolutions for 2019:

1. Eat more cool stuff. Duh. We’ll help you get started with our juicy list of dining establishments in San Francisco, New York, and DC. Shout out to Tucker and Gibson Johns for the good looks in San Fran and NY

2. Actually enjoy delicious, savory, and nutritious (or innutritious) food, which leads me to #3...

Travel Trends

I don’t know about y’all, but I was ready to tell 2018 to not let the door hit them on their way out last Monday. This said, last week Deb, Erin, and I took a beat to brainstorm/ rant about our hopes, dreams, and aspirations for 2019. I couldn’t be more amped for the new year and the shiny new breadcrumbs of positivity and possibility 2019 is laying out for us. Follow the breadcrumbs, people! It’s time to rise, grind, and get that new year bread. Our first savory loaf of New Year’s inspiration is a warm list of our top trending travel destinations. You only 2019 once, so let’s get going and GET IT.

Ho, ho, ho, Chrimby quangels...
It’s the most wonderful time of the year again at SCOUT Bags HQ—Santa Letters! Nothing says "Happy Holidays," like searching for the perfect gifts, scouring Target for the coolest toys, wrapping up those bad boys with shiny paper and pretty ribbons, and spreading cheer like nobody’s watching.

Calling all turtle doves!
Fill your bag with swag and style. Come in hot towing a Bagette filled with essentials your host/hostess will actually use and honestly needs. Added bonus: the Bagette is one of our Top-Sellers, and I’m talking TOP sellers, peeps (I don’t know if I was authorized to pass out that information, so that’s my gift to you, lucky readers). This is a Trader Joe’s favorite and a good looking tote at that. With delightful patterns, next-level roominess, and two handle lengths, your host will slam dunk that bag full of a bunch of other bags straight into the recycling. Saving trees and ocean critters is a sacred holiday gift even you can give!

Hi kitties, I have something to say about leopard. Point blank: it is the "power print." When you wear a leopard jacket, shoe, dress, heck, even a purse, you essentially become a brooding, powerful leopard slinking around the savannah stalking your prey (or grocery shopping). There are literally no rules to rocking leopard, only possibilities. This said you should wear it all season long, and Deb’s going tell you exactly how to do so. Kitty cat MEOW.

PRAISE GAIA, holiday hennys. Venus just dipped out of retrograde and Mercury is bouncing on December 6th, so we can all let go and let December do its holiday thang.

November Gifting Horoscopes

Season’s greetings to some of the most intense, thoughtful, and passionate star signs on the block. We’ve got water, fire, earth, and air on deck, and I’ve got to be honest, these particular gift guides have taken a lot out of me. Each of you are so different and have so much in store for your cosmic holiday season, it took a couple of stiff cups of joe to keep up. So, let’s get jiggy with it, because these ‘scopes aren’t going to unveil themselves!

November Gifting Horoscopes

Hello, holidays, horoscopes, and an array of beautiful excuses to TREAT YOURSELVES. We’re embracing a big, beautiful transition to Scorpio new moon on November 8th by kicking off the spirited season with horoscopes and—duh duh duh!—presents, presents, and more presents. While I’ve been scouring Susan Miller’s Astrology Zone, Deb has been meditating, sage-ing, and shopping for coordinating holiday gifts to leave you absolutely starry-eyed and surprised. Come, my lunar cuties, it’s time to unwrap your star-girl energies…

There’s a snake in my boot!

It’s western wedding weekend, y’all, and we struck gold *bites gold coin and winks.* The Johns and I scoured the Sundance Fall/Winter 2018 Catalog and ordered our mountain-chic wears for the destination wedding weekends of a lifetime. Weddings are (almost) always memorable but there’s just something special, dare I say, “electric,” about celebrating your dearest friends tying the knot out in those wide open spaces. I guarantee, the natural splendor and romance of it all will have you belting, “I SHOULD’VE BEEN A COWBOY. I should’ve learned to rope and ride…”

Everyone loves food (and Raymond). Boys like food. Girls like food. I like food. We all like food. Nothing brings people together like a great meal (and great drinks), especially on crisp and crunchy fall evenings. At times when the world feels a little freaky, and we all just need a fat glass of vino, or delicious vegan tacos, or Oreo gems, or positive words, there’s only one thing the doctor calls for: a get together with a solid group of gals.

blog-inthebag-oct-TinyPackage-headerIt’s wedding SZN in America, babies. We’re taking a moment to get real, from a guest's perspective, with all the brides to be out there. We love y’all, we cherish y’all, and we are thrilled to be there to dance with your single cousin, Nielson, all night long. We’re honored to dive for bouquets and tear that dance floor UP, but you gotta help us get there. So, today we’re talking wedding welcome bags with the OG wedding attendant, DWJstyle. She’s done a beauty 360 and packed three of our Tiny Packages with all kinds of legit wedding loot, so you don’t have to act like a fool on Pinterest all Saturday.

If you don't speak Rebecca after five K-Cups, allow me to translate: Deb's back from the Europe times, and we've got a lot to download.

I would be remiss to choose one, specific theme to elaborate on everything that’s happening in fashion for 2018/2019. Yikes, that reads like the thesis for a term paper on the selected works of William Faulkner due Monday morning at nine, but you conveniently waited to start it on Sunday at 6 PM. But, seriously, you can’t put the overarching theme of the upcoming season in a box, folks, so try to keep an open mind and closet. There’s going to be comebacks from a couple different eras, like the’60s,’80’s,’90s, and maybe even, like, the Gold Rush (I’ve seen some western wares that make me want to yell, “Yee-freakin-HAW!”).

Last week members of the Marketing Team shot our Spring Summer 2019 product in Austin, Texas. The super hip city played the ideal backdrop for next summer's collection of groovy new patterns. As fabulous and fun loving as these destination shoots may appear, it ain’t all glitz, glam, and brisket tacos. The photoshoot team has to transport over 150 pieces of SCOUT product. Over the years, we've tried every packing solution, and there’s nothing as efficient as the 4 Boys Bag. If you're headed to the Lone Star State, you better be packin’ heat and bring a bag with some Texas-level bandwidth.

Visualization is, quite literally, what dreams are made of and can be an incredibly useful and entertaining tool, especially when planning a celebration of your own. First we visualize, then we start preparing. And, if there’s anyone who knows how to turn party dreams into realities, it’s lil’ Deb Waterman Johns. She’s hot off the party planning skillet after hosting the 14th Annual Go Bo! rager at her home in Georgetown last weekend. Trust me y'all, hosting is a habit, so you're gonna wanna get like Deb.

Give me “The Rachel.” I’ll have an Arnold Palmer. We’ll take a carafe of Shirley Temple. What if you were so fabulous, so charismatic, and special, a refreshing beverage or cute haircut was named after you? It would be super flattering, of course, to be immortalized by your own name. That’s when you know you’ve really made it or “peaked,” as the kids say. If you’ve met any of the 4 prodigal Johns, then you totally get why this Family Assortment is flying off the shelves. It’s high time y’all heard it straight from the horsies mouths and find out what they’ve got in those water resistant, canvas saddle bags of theirs.

I’ve never had a “cool room.” Growing up in my Family Home, I wasn’t allowed to tape posters to the walls of my bedroom. My mother said the Scotch tape would make the paint peel and posters were distracting. My bed linens were ivory and beige. Honestly, my room looked like that of a Colonial chambermaid. For example, my dresser was from my grandmother’s collection of glossy, cherry and walnut pieces I didn’t appreciate at the time. I nearly destroyed the varnish when I spilled a bottle of nail polish remover while playing “beauty parlor” one afternoon. Still to this day, at the ripe(ish) age of 26, I keep my room relatively stark with the exception of my pink elephant duvet. All this said domicile decor shouldn't be like this. “Cool,” and practical are not, in fact, mutually exclusive when you have Deb Johns at the helm.

We love our funky iPhone cases, vibrant water bottles, and special sleeves for tablets and laptops. These are the little treasures that make the humdrum, the daily grind, the hustle, if you will, slightly more special. We are people, and we love our stuff. As a millennial (Hi, my name is Rebecca, and I’m a millennial woman), I’ll admit I especially adore my workaday accouterments. There are few things sweeter than a fresh Moleskin notebook with 120+ pages, soon to be soaked in scrawlings of my thoughts, dreams, feelies, and bleak grocery lists. Creature comforts like these are what make #desklife and #sweatlife aka #swamplife feel a little more dignified, a little more special. There's something oddly comforting about modifying these utterly ordinary “necessities” of ours. This version of redecorating, or modification with a little flair, is a key actor in the polypropylene heartbeat of our SCOUT Bags body. This is to say that, even if it's down to the last, dusty brown bag, we'll find a way to "celebrate life's colorful adventures," by Jove. Now, who’s ready to talk lunchboxes?

Whether you’re living in a big city-swamp, the burbs, or the boonies, ladies need someone to have their back. Who are the ladies? Obvi, we’re the ladies. You need someone to hold all your junk while you’re getting after it, OR fold itself into a pocket square and fade into the forever midnight when it’s not wanted. So, get you a bag—pardon, a backpack, that can do both!

Escúchame, chicas. Tengo que decir una cosa.

Brenda, much like our own DWJ, is a force of magnetic-rock-nature (this geological terminology will make more sense shortly)."But, Who is Brenda??" you're probably wondering. Brenda is Deb's extremely cool friend. “But, why ~Ibitha~?” you ask. Well, Brenda and her betrothed, Gilles, have a vacation home there, and we're going to go visit them (thank you, Brenda). Perhaps you associated the exotic island with EDM music festivals lasting until sunrise and that one Mike Posner song. Holy buckets, even the thought of it makes me sleepy. No te preocupes, dear reader. There is so, so much more to this magical, Mediterranean mass of rose quartz.

Fall is here, hear the yell
Back to school, ring the bell
Brand new shoes, walking blues
Climb the fence, books and pens
I can tell that we are gonna be friends

Walk with me, Suzy Lee
Through the park and by the tree
We will rest upon the ground
And look at all the bugs we found
Safely walk to school without a sound...

Hey, style child.

Summer is a great time to experiment with patterns, new cocktail recipes, and going on blind dates. Today, we’ll be focusing on the new patterns part. Since it’s 9 million degrees out there, everyone is legally authorized to shed their pelts and show a little more skin. It’s the perfect time to dust off your pile of patterns now that they won’t read as dramatic or overbearing. So, Deb selected three, popular patterns for summer that are really easy to mix and match without looking like you got dressed in the pitch black of the witching hour. But, before you mix, you’ve got to stop, collaborate, and listen to DWJ's guide to florals, dots, and stripes.

When you're on a holiday, you can’t find the words to say
All the things that come to you, and I wanna feel it too
On an island in the sun, we’ll be playing and having fun
And it makes me feel so fine I can’t control my brain
We'll run away together
We'll spend some time forever
We'll never feel bad anymore...

When a destination photo shoot comes a-knockin', ya answer. Rummage through your storage, pull out those Bean boots that highlight your calves just so, and charter the closest moose. Portland, Maine is the obvious choice when you’ve got to shoot the Fall/Winter 2018 Collection featuring a gourmet market story. With a Köppen climate, ample artisanal grocery stores, and the return of one of our top models, Shakara Pittman, you can’t possibly go wrong…Right?

Okay, ladies, we all know “wellness” isn’t just about barre-lates-crank-core-blast-regimen-detox. Wellness can include binge-watching West World while you knit a shawl or bake a fabulous, tomato cheddar pie. Wellness can even be as simple as showering regularly or getting the mail from the mailbox. Wellness is also going for a long run, cranking strong female vocalists, and generating so many endorphins your soul briefly leaves your body and flies to heaven. Regardless of flying logistics, we at SCOUT HQ want to give you a vehicle that transports your wellness tools wherever life takes you. So, sit back in child’s pose, crack open an ice cold kombucha, and inhale SCOUT’s latest What’s in the Bag: the Fit Kit (you're welcome for the sneak peak of Fall 2018 patterns).

Shout out to all my G.R.I.T.S.

Every mile is a memory when you’re in God's country (the south). This May, Deb and I have been compiling our own savory, southern narratives during our respective trips to Savannah, Georgia, and Sewanee, Tennessee. While Deb was on a midnight train to Georgia for a wedding, I headed to my Southern comfort zone and alma mater, the University of the South, for my little brother’s graduation. Lord, we were born ramblin’ women and are back in the District with a southern state of mind (and a little bit chicken fried). So, why don’t y’all giddy up, giddy up and get gone with the wind with us!

Time to wake up and smell the wet, hot garbage. Summer is coming in hotsy totsy, Washington. So, gird your face wipes, baby powder, and Evian spray, because it's about to get real hot and sticky up in the Swamp. If you’re an average gal who starts dumping sweat the moment the temperature breaks 60 degrees, like me, then you’re also plagued with the looming anxiety of staying relatively “fresh” over the course of the next 4 months...

Hey, fannies.

In February, the runways of Paris Fashion Week gave a preview of what designers have on the docket for Fall/Winter ‘18. Gucci, for example, held their Fall ‘18 runway show on a set designed to look like an operating room with models casually carrying baby dragons and lifelike replicas of their heads. The invitations were hermetically sealed bags with digital timers inside, ominously counting down to showtime. The whole thing was very Game of Thrones meets Nip/Tuck and leaves us wondering what the heck we’re going to be wearing come fall...

blog_BehindtheDesign-Apr-CarnivalYall-Header-1Hey cuties.

My charts are telling me today calls for some serious realness. Therefore, I would be remiss if I didn’t provide some 3-pm-on-the-Friday-and-hangin’-by-a-thread inspiration. So, let’s get it. As brash, crass, and first-class, New Orleans-based artist, Ashley Longshore, says, “Don’t ever save anything for a ‘special occasion.’ Being alive is the special occasion.” Sometimes we need a hero to order a round of reality shots to get the party started.

Model, actress, producer, and inspiration, Tyra Banks, once asked, “Wanna be on top???” So, my mom refused to let me watch America’s Next Top Model. She was horrified after watching an episode where one of the models didn’t know how to pronounce ‘chartreuse’ while reading from a teleprompter during a fashion forecasting challenge. From then on, she only allowed me to read books about women, like, Amelia Earhart, Marion Anderson, and Anne Sullivan. This way, my brain wouldn’t rot from watching aspiring models weep as a stylist chopped off their long, yellow hair, and dye it a shade that can best be described as, “rusty.” I think she pretty much hid the channel changer, so we’d be trapped in channel 8 (PBS) purgatory. Anyway, the answer is: yes. I do “wanna be on top.” Unfortunately, I am too elderly to enter the competition, as I am 26. Fortunately, I work with ~real~ models who know how to pronounce the names of colors. Their level of hair meltdowns is on a scale of zero to “there are a hundred pounds of dry shampoo on my head.” They are smart. They are fierce. And, they are willing to share the behind the scenes goss from their recent shoot in Park City, Utah.

I hear the drums echoing tonight. But, she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation. She's coming in, 12:30 flight. The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation. I stopped an old man along the way. Hoping to find some long forgotten words or ancient melodies. He turned to me as if to say, "Hurry boy, it's waiting there for you..." It's gonna take a lot to take me away from YOU. There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever DO. I bless the rains down in AFRICA.Gonna take some time to do the things we never had…

When it comes to packing, especially for those weekend getaways, many of us are idealists with big dreams and aspirations. I'm one of these dreamers. But, I know how the ambitious packer plotline unfolds, and it ain't pretty. I’m not going to try to disprove the “better to overpack than under pack” theory. I've personally developed some core values for packing smart. For example, if you haven’t worn it in the last year, then don't kid yourself. You're not going to wear it this weekend. I’m truly sorry, batique tube top I bought at a street fair in Argentina five years ago and have been “saving for the right occasion.” It shouldn’t come as a total shock that you’ll be sitting this one out with the rest of my 2013 Music Festival Dust Rag Collection.

We have a triple threat coming up this Sunday with Easter, Deb’s Birthday, and April Fool’s Day. My heavens, how can we possibly cover them all? We can’t! So, we won’t. It would be so long winded, and the children would cry. We want the children to smile, and if there’s one person who can make the children smile, it’s our in-house birthday girl, Deborah Waterman Johns. You want your children to smile, right? Of course, right!

Deb’s been on the run, driving in the sun, looking out for number one (That’s you, Gussie Johns!). Little Debbie has left us for the Golden Coast to visit her all-star daughter and fan favorite, Gussie, at USC. She’s been giving us 5-star live updates, and if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s California, most certainly, “knows how to partay.” And how to eat tacos, apparently. So, like, get back on San Vicente, take it to the 10, then switch over to the 405 North, and let it dump you out to Mulholland, where you belong!

Deb’s design inspiration for this pattern came from a print on a dilapidated wallpaper plastered to the side of a building in Paris. I remember Deb telling the story of her Parisian pattern inspo after returning from her bi-annual Europe trip last September. The a-ha moment occurred just as a wrecking machine was about to smash an old boulangerie/boucher/banque (could have been any of these v French places) to smithereens. Untethered by her own inspiration, Deb shotgunned her tea and smashed the cup on the sidewalk. The woman would not be stopped.

A wise man once said, “Oh oh oh oh it's international love. You're international, so international.” Some of you may know this man as “Mr. Worldwide” or “Mr. 305.” I prefer to call him by his birth name, “Pitbull.” I can’t think of a more fitting quotation for our spring break remix of “What’s in the Bag." Come fly with me and our resident travel-bae’s, Laura Doherty and Charlotte Allen. They’ve crammed their Overpacker’s with all sorts of essentials for their trips to Dubai and Miami, respectively. What a time to be alive. Prepare for liftoff.

I’m an old-fashioned girl, I believe in romance.  Who doesn’t like being wined and dined by a local suitor, going for a moonlit jaunt around the National Mall, and bequeathed a solitary rose at the end of the night? In spite of my Swift-ian reverence for romance, I bah-humbug my way through February, scoff at every Zales commercial, and eye-roll down the Walgreens candy aisle. Recently, Valentine's Day hasn’t really been my bag. This year, however, something made me change my tune. I’ve denounced my Scrooge-y convictions to become a Valentine pundit. If you’re like me and long to be moved by the V-Day spirit, let Deb Waterman Johns be your guide. Watch out.  She’s about to twirl on you, Valentine’s haters. 
*No, roses, actually.  I, like bae-Chris Harrison, will be forever triggered by rose bestowing of any kind.

Hey, my quangels*

Here's the deal. It doesn’t take much to have me feeling like the one again or put some pep in my step. For example, nothing gets me fired up like a fresh pair of black leggings. The moment I slap on those bad boys, and my feet hit the mat, I transform into Rebecca Sanders: Yoga Extraordinaire. My oms rival a live Beyonce performance. If side-planking was a career field, then I'd be the CEO of Plank Inc. I'm pretty much levitating by the end of class.  *I really hope no one from the studio sees this.* All leggings aside, everyone has their secret weapons to feel like unstoppable-boss-Khaleesi versions of ourselves. This season, Deb gives us a reason to retire our golden lassos and cuffs with the release of our new Black Wink Collection. Before you know it, you’ll have joined the movement and want to personally thank her.

This week, DWJ and our SCOUT cowgirls have been deep in the heart of Texas, at the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market.  For all you strangers to the world of retail, going to “Market” requires a relatively intense amount of effort from all participants. Trade shows ain’t for the faint of heart, so you’ve got to come in guns-a-blazin’, ready to make deals, and take names. With this in mind, you’d think DWJ and our regional sales managers wouldn’t have time to bee-bop around Dallas for blog research. Well, they made time, darn it. Because, when you’re doing it Texas-style, you better be bold, brassy, and mean business. Now, giddy up. We’ve got a travel guide to get to.

De's Desk: DC Restaurants

When it comes to food, film, fashion, music, or anything requiring creativity, Deb Waterman Johns is a straight shooter. She sees through the fluff, gives credit where it’s due, and approaches everything with an open mind—kind of like a good-natured, yet dogmatic host for a cooking competition reality TV show. I’d probably put her in the same category as Padma Lakshmi. This said, DC restaurant week is approaching on January 22-28th, and Deb gave us the lowdown on hot options. So, I’d recommend postponing any plans for Whole 30 and making your reservations now.

Hey, hello, hi!

We couldn’t be more stoked to shred into 2018 like a fresh pow. We intend to feel refreshed, re-energized and reorganized. Several of our Team members have written testimonials about what’s in their...bins! Yep, bins. If you didn’t know we had storage, well, now you do. Congrats!  Don’t worry, this isn’t a sermon about “new year, new you,” or a making SCOUT part of your list of resolutions (not suggesting you have to have any, but you get the gist). This isn’t a resolution.

It’s a lifestyle.

Eleven from Stranger Things. Cher Horowitz. Cindy Lou Who. Katniss Everdeen. Elle Woods. Nancy Drew.  What do these chicks have in common?  They're always saving the day (and have impeccable style). Clearly, not all heroines wear capes. I know one, in particular, who wears a black fanny pack.  Every day. When Deb Johns isn't creating 28 new patterns and 11 new styles, fighting crimes of fashion, and defending us from potential faux pas, she's saving Christmas. I know what you're thinking, "Uh...Wrong. That's actually kind of Santa's thing." Well, I'll let you in on a little secret: I know Santa. No kidding, I really do. Because Santa is Deb Waterman Johns.

We all know December can be a little intense, or "so extra," as the millennials say. Do you have a dormant sensation of heartburn, onset by all the cured meats and blue cheeses you've been hoovering at post-work cocktail parties? Is your gout flaring up? Does holiday shopping trigger images of yourself, literally lighting money on fire? Have you recently experienced any rage blackouts? If you’d answer “yes” to any of these questions, then you may have a case of the December Scaries/winter doldrums/Mercury in retrograde.

So, what do you say? Wanna get away...?

Blog_BehindTheDesgin_Dec_Metallics-Header-1This holiday season, Deb's giving the people what they want. "What do the people want?" you ask?  The people want luxe. The people love glitter. The people need metallic, shine, glitz and glamour! AND, a little gold, silver, frankincense and myrrh, I say!

Red Sox. The Affleck's.  Lobster rolls. MIT. Clam chowder. Cream pies. Dunkin' Donuts. Harvard.  Goodwill Hunting.

You guessed it.

I'm willing to bet there are a bunch of research studies linking primal fear and closets.  I would provide a slew of examples, but I'd rather base facts off personal feelings (re. monsters, robbers & Chronicles of Narnia). Our own closets are the most intimidating, especially when throwing together a last minute outfit. We're thinking of your well-being, so we've collaborated with Deb and 3 of our team members to stop you from panic purchasing and screwing the outfit pooch.  Patience is a virtue, so we met with SCOUT's most patient and good-natured team members who opened their closets up to our holiday re-styling.  They're living proof that you don't have to (but feel free, if you want to!) rush out and buy an outfit day/night-of.

Shout out to all my crazy turkeys!

In the spirit of Thanksgiving and all things caloric, we're donning our bonnets and aprons and serving up a triple feature.  We spoke with our beloved, In-Store Brand Merchandising Manager, Christine Motsco and Sarah Ashton Clark, Wholesale Regional Sales Manager for the Southeast, South and West.  They're sharing the secret to doing it all with their bags Hot Date's (oh la la).  

Gobble, gobble!

Blog_BehindTheDesgin_Nov_LooBlue-Header-1Like a locker room at the big game, green room during opening night, empty classroom before presenting your Senior thesis, the Powder Room is sacred. This hallowed space can transport and rejuvenate you.  This holiday season, Deb's decorative prints have a similar effect.

So, with transport in mind, let's begin our journey with a little trip down memory lane...

We're about to take you on a tour of New York, so cool it, Action!

If you're like me, then we share a deep, dark secret: we've never been to...New York. There! I said it! Well, you've probably cooked up some ideas about what it's like. You fantasize about being the tallest and prettiest Rockette, dead-center of a chorus-line high-kicking its way through Times Square. Today, we will stop rolling the dice on destiny.

Deb will be the first to tell you that a stripe will always be a crowd pleaser--it’s timeless.  It's classic.  At the same time, she’s not going to settle with safe and move on to the next pattern.  But, where’s the fun in that?  Where’s the twist?!  This is when Deb comes in with the layers and variety.  This is fashion, people!  We gotta keep things interesting!

Party people put your hands in the air and get amped for the holidays.  Deb teamed up with Sak's Fifth Avenue for a show geared to give women a taste of what’s coming up for fall/winter dressing.

This Friday marks the official start of fall.  I sensed the approaching deadline after receiving the gentle prompt from a fellow southern rule-follower that the time had come to cast off and/or lock up any traces of white, linen, etc. (I don't actually follow this "rule," by the way, and neither should you!).  If you're anything like me, then picking an outfit in the morning seems tantamount to being a contestant on the Great British Bake Off.  You look at your garment rack in panic as if you've been given an almond and orange, then asked to make 24 fortune cookies.  Before you start screaming, having a meltdown and making yourself late for work: stop. Take a deep breath.  The answer is right in front of you and much easier than it seems...

At first glance, deciding upon an interviewee for the debut of our "What’s in the bag?" column, may sound daunting. But for us, the obvious first choice was Becky Quinn.  If you’re a fan of go-getter, mission driven, yet, laid-back women, who also happen to be the life of the party, then you’ve got to meet our friend in SCOUT, BQ. We’ve had Becky on the brain since she graciously hosted a few of our team members at her Charlottesville home during our recent photo shoot. Our team was initially introduced to Becky as a close friend of Deb’s, our Chief Creative Officer, and a loyal customer of the SCOUT brand. We’ve also spent countless mornings blissfully snacking away on bowlfuls of granola from her local business, BQgranola. Somehow, Becky found time away from being a DC local entrepreneur, caretaker to 3 dogs, mother of UVA sophomore, Eliza, and attending a Sting concert at the Wolf Trap, to come chat with us at our headquarters. Our eye-opening chat with Becky revealed to us the importance of a bag carrying more than just stuff...

This featured pattern was created by Deb, our Chief Creative Officer, who channeled a personal twist on bouclé.  For those who don't parlez-vouz francais, the word "bouclé" means "to buckle," alluding to the bunched and stubbly effect created by weaving, stitching, and knitting threads or wool of varying sizes and lengths.  Gabrielle "CoCo" Chanel and the Chanel brand is famously known for using this technique when designing jackets and blazers.

It’s a challenge to shoot fall images when it's 95 degrees and humid… but, we braved the heat and got it done. We wanted to convey campus life, travel, entertaining, and outdoor activities for fall and Charlottesville gave us all of this and more!

Everyone loves to head back to school with new clothes and shoes. We can’t resist pink, which is best mixed in with fall neutrals like black, white, navy, and moss green. Many shades of pink, from powder to shocking, bring warmth and flair to your ensembles. And as the cooler weather arrives, pink will keep the heat on!

Shades of blue offer a soothing oasis in the midst of dynamic dorm life!  We love how navy mixes with all other blues and easily anchors a cool away from home space.

Days at the beach are a highlight of the summer vacation season but they bring with them wet and sandy towels, swim suits and accessories that threaten to ruin dry items in a shared bag.  We suggest trying our Stiff One cooler to carry your wet items from the pool or beach to prevent water logging items that need to be kept dry.  The sturdy base is ideal for upright containment of wet suits and toys…

There's no better time to catch up on Big Little Lies if you missed it! It was an office favorite this past spring and the style still has us reeling. Reese plays Madeline, a dynamic, bold character with a conflicted persona. She is free loving yet purposefully put together, feminine yet sexy.  She wears Carolina Herrera floral dresses to J Crew & Kate Spade classics with a twist and isn’t afraid to mix her jeans with floral blouses, colorful blazers and pumps.

Shoes are back in a BIG way and setting the pace for style in the world of fashion.  We're loving unexpectedly placed racing stripes on platforms and elevated styles, animal prints punctuated with a pop of color, jewel and pearl embellishment on day and evening shoes, and sneakers and stilettos accentuated with knots and ties.  There is definitely a movement towards athleisure and neutrality in our everyday “uniforms,” but we can count on unforgettable footwear that will walk us from summer into fall!

The transition from Summer to Fall can often leave us confused and anxious, staring into the void that is our closet.  You've probably found yourself standing there with an Uber waiting outside and dinner reservations for 15 minutes ago.  You're looking for the mate to an earring and frantically calculating whether any piece of your ensemble is seasonally appropriate.  Fortunately, most of these "old rules" no longer apply!

White jeans take the spotlight in the summer months.  They're great with both t-shirts and stylish tops, sneakers, sandals, or espadrilles. Embellishment can be what really elevates their game. Think embroidery, fringe, lace inserts, decorative “tape” along the side for a tuxedo-pant look. Studding, jewel encrusting, button and pocket details, drawstrings, batik patterning, hand painting, fabric patching and hem bordering can take your white jean appreciation to a whole new level.  Pair your white denim with a basic T and flats for a look with flair!

If you missed it, there's no better time to catch up on Big Little Lies. It was an office favorite this past spring and the styles still have us reeling. Bonnie is a No-Cal, hippie/boho young woman who finds herself immersed in the lives of her husband’s ex-wife and her posse.  She embodies youth  and favors fitted silhouettes and sheer layers with an ethnic nod from Free People, Zara & Anthropologie.  She fearlessly mixes her spirited looks to maintain her originality and youth.

There's no better time to catch up on Big Little Lies if you missed it! It was an office favorite this past spring and the style still has us reeling. Nicole Kidman portrays a lawyer with style that is perfectly coiffed and modern with a romantic, free flowing slant.

She is refined and timeless…and a bit reserved in her style. See how to get the look after the jump.

In honor of Women's History Month, we're celebrating females who have changed the game with their influence on fashion. I met Donna Karan while working at Vogue as she began to embark on her one woman quest to redesign the look of the modern female. Her structured yet soft, sculpted looks in knits and wovens in assorted monochromatic arrays offered modern women a chic, comfortable and distinctive way to dress for her increasingly fast paced life.  Donna practically invented the bodysuit and made jersey dressing a way of life.

Buckles can be functional or simply the perfect decorative element!

When Deb decided to form SCOUT with her husband, she brought with her a vast array of color and textile industry knowledge and invaluable experience gained working for Vogue. As Deb puts it, it was the eighties and eighties fashion that was a time of complete and utter excess, the most luxe photo shoots and truly the epitome of style and glamour. This unparalleled exposure undoubtedly shapes the way SCOUT continues to evolve. Read on to see how Deb's dynamic past continues to shape SCOUT's growth.

#swagbagFor this year's Go Bo festivities, one of our classic bags -- the Bagette -- has been reserved as the official swag bag for all of the attendees to grab on their way out. The Bagette is amazing. It folds up incredibly thin and can be stowed easily in the tiniest crevice until you need it -- then it's toting your Thanksgiving turkey and all of the fixins. It is incredibly durable and yet unbelievably lightweight. Have we mentioned before our love for the Bagette?

The thing we love most about our rugs is their crisp, bright colors that totally activate a boring space. They are an instant breath of fresh air that will help you liven up any space. Yes, of course, they're 100% machine washable, non-skid and low profile so they fit under just about every door and easily into any space. But, we can talk about that any day! Today we kind of wanted to brag about the new patterns and how amazing they look on rugs. These new designs have us all kinds of inspired - you know, like those bright pumps you saw at the store and thought "How amazing are these? But where will I wear them?" We like to think of our bright flooring as the easy solution.

This week we are focusing on the season-less aspect of fall fashion. Grecian art and culture has been  a huge fashion influence for modern day styles due to the flattering drapery inspired by ancient grecian clothing. Simplicity and function were important for Greek men and women, partially because of the summer heat in Greece. Fabric, typically a light linen, was folded, pleated, and draped around the body to create a tunic like dress that was made to keep cool but look finished. Today, we associate drapery, tunics, and even peplums, which are derived from the Greek peplos or women's tunics, with Greece and will forever be indebted to Greece for its immense influence on modern fashion.

Just because the Greeks wore drapes for comfort and simplicity doesn't mean the style is limited to that. These cocktail dresses are great for a gala or night out on the town.

Last Thursday was SCOUT's 11th Birthday; almost a teenager! For those of you who don't know the SCOUT story, we will give you a short summary. In the early 2000s, co-founder and creative director, Deb Johns was traveling in Milan when a plaid carryall bag caught her eye. It didn't take long for Deb to formulate the idea for SCOUT, which was to create fun, functional, and affordable tote bags for women and families. The brand is named after Ben and Deb's beloved dachshund who lives up to his now iconic name. SCOUT has since grown to include an array of bags, accessories, and even rugs.
