fully, not only does emerging handbag brand
Fleabags have us covered, but they’re also
eco-friendly! Launched last season with a
limited run of 100 handmade bags produced
in NYC, Fleabags products use only organic
and vintage materials. When we discovered
the bags at indie boutique Thistle & Clover in
Brooklyn, we reacted with a frenzy of excite-
ment. Designers Shira Entis and Alex Bell
created Fleabags with the idea that flea mar-
ket haunts shouldn’t leave you looking like
a bag lady. These dapper, large, lightweight,

have all the room we need for a summer day

anything more?

Synonymous with American culture,
denim is certainly not a new concept in
fashion; however, as denim remerged this
spring in the form of patchwork shirts,
sleek cocktail dresses, and even platform
shoes, it brought with it a certain nostal-
gia for faded-blue hues and distressed
accents. For some time, leggings had
dominated women’s stems all over the
world, but with that trend on a down-
swing, blue jean fabrics are back with a
vengeance. Fancy a pair of jeggings, any-
one? This season, fear not the dreaded
monochromatic fashion faux pas; instead,
pile on different denim shades and
textures—and let your accessories handle
the embellishments.

During this time of year, the racks often
can look like a spring meadow: floral with
soft hues. And of course we love florals,
but sometimes we want our roses with
thorns. Motel, the refreshingly un-dainty
line from England is here to provide you
with beautifully brash silhouettes that ac-
centuate your curves, yet add structure
with 1950s London mod influences. Chic
little black dresses aren’t the
only thing Motel has to offer.
the apparel company also has
created fantastic separates and

Our adventurous beauty editor, Adriana, concocts dirty little treats
that will get you clean, glowing and supple.
Homemade beauty regimens always have intrigued me. I’m a firm believer that chemicals belong in a science lab, not on my face.
By now, perhaps it’s commonly known that some of the best ingredients for organic skin care can be found in your local grocery
store. However, I was surprised to find the recipes that appealed most to my tummy were not always the best for my skin. Don’t
be fooled by what’s tastiest. Looking into what fruits and veggies have to offer is the key to unlocking a healthier-looking you. So,
while carrots may not be the sweetest treat, they are chock full of antioxidants that do wonders for your face. I tested out quite a
few concoctions that didn’t make the cut, including a super greasy olive oil hair mask that I’m still washing out, as well as a tomato
and oatmeal scrub that looked like a bowl of vomit. Rest assured: there were plenty that made the cut. The following recipes not
only will leave you looking fabulous, but also make you feel great on the inside.

You also can let your creativity run wild

We catch up with the team at Rik
Rak salon for their take on beauty
and fashion this season from the
capital of summer: Miami!

1. How did your foray into the beauty/salon indus-


try first begin?

I had a clothing store in Coral Gables and did fash-


ion shows frequently. I worked closely with various
hairs salons and makeup artists to style the models
and Rik happened to be a stylist at one of these
salons. Well, that is the story both of how we met
and how we merged our businesses together.

2. Rik Rak is one of the most aesthetically pleasing


and well-designed salons in the Miami area. Where
did the inspiration and concepts stem from? What
as the mission statement and community market
goals from the beginning?

We wanted to create a comfortable environment


for our clients to have their hair and beauty servic-
es done and enjoy a gourmet meal with a glass of
champagne, while they browse our chic boutique.
