Now that we’ve come out of our finals induced hibernation period, we’re ready to take in all that the season has to offer. It’s easy to feel the opposite of merry and bright when just coming off of the stress of studying for a World War II History final, but this ThreadSence video did just the trick to fill our hearts with cheer. We’ve been a fan of ThreadSence look book videos for quite some time now, and each season they cease to amaze us with their impeccably styled looks, unique settings, and always complimentary soundtrack. So if you need a dose of holiday happiness, tune in to this.

There’s just something so magical about waking up to a rainstorm. Normally our mornings are spent rushing around, preparing for the day ahead, but on a rain-soaked morning like today, we’re more inclined to stop, slow down, and enjoy our coffee with a side of relaxation. There’s no better way to enjoy a lazy morning than by catching up on the newest lookbook video from one of our favorite online clothing shops, Threadsence. They consistently manage to style their videos so perfectly with just the right combination of fun, edge, and natural beauty, combined with a killer soundtrack. So curl up on the couch, forget about work for a few minutes, and feast your eyes on something beautiful and inspiring. Rain, rain, don’t go away just yet.
It’s no secret that music is better with a story behind it—especially if that story involves an impromptu underground Avicii concert, with fabulous apartments and wardrobes to match. From the casual edginess of the jackets, button downs and denim to the strutting, bobbing, dancing, and overall movement of the video, we can say we are officially hooked (and completely jealous that we didn’t get the invite).

Every now and then a song comes along that has a way of transporting us to another place and time. Bloom by The Paper Kites just happens to be one of those songs and it’s been playing on repeat on our iTunes for weeks now. No matter what type of mood we’re in, or how many homework assignments we have due by midnight, every time this tune starts to play, an instant calm smile appears upon our faces, reminiscent of a Folger’s coffee commercial right after the actor takes a whiff of his steaming hot cup of joe. When listening to this song, all seems right in the world for three and half short minutes. If only it could last just a little bit longer, but hey, we’ll take it for now.
Awhile back, we vowed (no pun intended) to never feature those adorable wedding videos that go viral on the internet on Purduelala.com for the sheer fact that they make the happy couples in them seem so perfect and unattainable, we’re convinced they have to be living in a fairy tale. So when we stumbled upon this particular wedding video, our skeptical selves were ready to roll our eyes at yet another sappy, three minute love story. Boy were we wrong. Everything about this video had us smiling and wishing it would never end. From Fleet Foxes playing in the background, to the brides drop-dead gorgeous dress and pink cardigan, to the intimate and meaningful ceremony, everything about this wedding video is pure perfection. We’re now vowing to never say never again. Just watch and you’ll understand why.
We recently discovered the jewelry line Thread and Stone and instantly fell in love. Normally drawn to large and in charge statement jewelry, their delicate, natural, and simplistic designs instantly caught our attention and have inspired us to accessorize out of the box. This look book video beautifully compliments their one of a kind designs, from the sounds of the ocean waves crashing in the background, to the rustic walled tent, to the the happy go lucky rendition of “Heart of Glass” playing as the soundtrack. It’s true perfection.
ThreadSence has done it once again with this masterful spring look book video. We just can’t stop watching it. Maybe our obsession is based on the fact that The Black Keys were chosen as the soundtrack (and we just saw them in concert…. incredible) or maybe it’s our dream of forming our own rock band and traveling through the desert to play at local bars that keeps us watching it on repeat. Whatever the reason, we thought we’d share something with you that made us smile, and sharing in our eyes is very rock n’ roll.
If you know LaLa, you understand our affinity for antique bikes, bright lipstick and any plan that includes a straw picnic basket. We love that this video highlights simple, classic pieces which are the key ingredients for any fabulous spring outfit. Bold stripes, neutral bottoms and a floppy hat are all you need to perfect an easy, yet fashionable, sunny day style!
This Montreal designer, Betina Lou, combines vintage touches and modern twists for an original, classic look. If we know one fashion rule that always rings true it’s that timelessness never goes out of style (and neither does spending a sunny afternoon twirling along the seaside!)
We recently discovered Stela9, a business determined to provide its customers with fashion forward handbags and totes from around the world, all well helping support the artisans that created the beautiful accessories. After checking out the website and watching this lookbook video for their spring/summer line, we’re completely sold. Not only is each bag truly a work of art, the concept behind the idea of helping the impoverished make a living for themselves is even more breathtaking. See for yourself.
It’s Thursday and you know what that means… tomorrow’s Friday, which is almost the weekend! It always seems that Thursdays are sometimes the hardest day of the week to get through knowing how close the weekend is with all its wonderfulness. We thought though that in order to help you get through your Thursday lull we’d share with you this video that’s sure to make you smile and reminiscence on the days of playing musical chairs and pin the tail on the donkey at birthday parties. Also please notice the incredible wardrobe and toe-tapping soundtrack. Enjoy friends! And hang in there… it’ll be Friday before you know it.
