Behind the Design: Denim

Posted on Jan 25, 2019 10:36:07 AM

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.

Behind the Design: Leopard

Posted on Dec 5, 2018 12:46:09 PM

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.

Behind the Design: Paris Fashion

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!”).

Mr. McGuire: I want to say one word to you. Just one word.

Benjamin: Yes, sir.

Mr. McGuire: Are you listening?

Benjamin: Yes, I am.

Mr. McGuire: Plastics.

Benjamin: Exactly how do you mean?

Mr. McGuire: There's a great future in plastics. Think about it. Will you think about it?

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...

Behind the Design: Coral Patterns

Hip Hip.
Hip Hip.

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...

Hip Hip.

In the fast lane

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.

Behind the Design: Parisian Prints

Posted on Mar 16, 2018 5:05:49 PM

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.

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!
