Picture it: The year is 1967. The place: Laurel Canyon. Tucked away in the hills of Los Angeles, bohemian bungalows fill the canyon inhabited by the coolest and most talented in the music industry. Marijuana smoke fills the air and Frank Zappa could take a stroll down the road and hear the tunes of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young’s guitars echoing through the hills. Graham Nash moved out to LA to stay with his lover, Joni Mitchell. All hanging out together, co-writing songs, taking drugs, and messing around.. David Crosby, Stephen Stills, Michelle Philips, Linda Ronstadt, Mama Cass, The Rolling Stones, Frank Zappa, and Jackson Browne were just a few of the groovy rock ‘n’ roll Bandits that were making history in the free love world of Laurel Canyon. Other stars from all of the world were known to have frequented the canyon to visit their famous friends, too. Here are some dreamy stills from the time we all wish we could go back to and be a part of…

Fashion Week for Fall 2015 RTW in New York and London has ended and boy are we satisfied with what we saw! 70’s bandit babe style was prominent on the runways. From suede to fringe, to lace and bandanas, we’re having daydreams of a designer dude ranch over here. There were definitely some stand out designers that pulled at our little cowgirl heart strings. Here’s a look at our favorite bandit-esque looks from Fashion Week!
Anna Sui has proven once again that she has mastered 70’s boho chic adorned with lace-up boots and knitted viking helmets.
Burberry Prorsum blew us away with bohemian florals and AMAZING head-to-toe suede fringe looks.
We’re in love with the enchanted, romantic, Victorian-esque lace and embroidery that dominated Alberta Ferretti‘s (Milan) runway.
House of Holland featured graphic red and white stripes and very bandit-y neck handkerchiefs.
Coach totally won us over. They really stepped up their game with a fresh, edgy vibe. They even sported bandanas, our fave accessory of 2015! Their show also included AMAZE outerwear with badass leather and luscious shearling.
We could die happy in Rodarte‘s collection. Their runway included sexy leather and lace looks paired with luxe fur.
Temperley London featured graphic tribal prints and gorgeous fall palettes mixed with bright whites and shimmering sequins – a yummy fall/winter wonderland.
Ralph Lauren brought class with heavenly knits paired with fringe, suede, and fur – mixed with Native American inspired accessories. The looks really screamed Snow Bandit.
Mara Hoffman‘s style is the epitome of Desert Goddess. Her collection featured beautiful tribal and mountain range inspired prints. Her oversized fur coats killed us and her opulent gold and white printed two-piece sets sparkled down the catwalk.
We love a good arm party… So much so, that we designed our bracelets with the intention of stacking, mixing and matching.
We’re now offering our favorite bracelets in 4 different Stacking Sets. The best part is, if you buy the set it’s cheaper than buying the individual bracelets.
