Waking up in Tulum

140417_LSF_TULUM-1679.jpg

The sea and sand of Tulum are like no other, but Tulum has two sides and opposite its stunning beach, is the jungle. With deep, lush greens and memorizing centoes, any adventurer gets lost in its unique beauty. 

The LSF creative team has been traveling to Tulum for years, to seek inspiration, produce shoots, and to enjoy the salty air and warm love of its people. On one special trip our crew met model and now dear friend of LSF, Lias Rodrigues Liveria, Lias lives with her husband on the jungle side of the enchanting city and invited us to her home for a gorgeous afternoon dinner party. 

With wine and spirit in hand we arrived to her elegant home midst beautiful overgrown and romantic wild vegetation.

On the menu was homemade empanadas and guacamole. Music filled the air and we danced together into the evening. Lais is all heart, she entertained us with gracious affection.

Two salt water pools surrounded her home and we swam when it got too hot to dance. Never had any of us experienced a more special and inspired day. 

We laughed and loved that day. Unforgettable and almost unbelievable.

She came from the ocean,

This wild girl from the sea,

Her hair flowing southwards

She walked towards me...

On the Streets

 

 

"I'll stop wearing black when they invent a darker color"     -Wednesday Adams

 

Honestly we are so obsessed with our new Melody dress that we can't wait until the spring to break out the eyelet. Thankfully with a few key accessories, and that random black turtleneck that we've always kept "just in case", we can walk the streets long before the flowers bloom.

Our long time friend and model agent, Taylor Warren, shows us how it's done by throwing her fiancé's leather over our Resort favorite.

 

Cab please!

Waking Up In Prairie Lace

We are pure New Yorkers, but when the weather turns cooler, we like to escape the cold and run off to the West Coast for a little sunshine. Our friend Rocky invited us inside her home for a weekend in the Hollywood Hills. We spent a day dressing up in her favorite pieces from our Resort collection and the incredible Dove Shore captured every moment.  

I am hopelessly in love with a memory. An echo from anther time, another place. Lace creates an elegant, vintage look that I love. I love the way lace sits on my body, like leather, it’s another form of texture to complete my wardrobe. The lace pieces in this shoot are everything to me, lace is such a powerful texture in imagery, shooting against my bedroom and dry desert landscape in the Hollywood Hills behind my home worked so beautifully!
— ROCKY BARNES
So I’m back to the velvet underground
back to the floor that I love
to a room with some lace and paper flowers
back to the gypsy that I was...
— FLEETWOOD MAC, 'GYPSY'
Well lightning strikes, maybe once, maybe twice
Ah, and it lights up the night
And you see your gypsy
— FLEETWOOD MAC, 'GYPSY'

Winter Lights for Festive Nights

The year end holidays have a magical way of bringing people together, whether it be over a delicious home-cooked meal with your family or during a short city escape with your closest friends. While it is easy to fall back on classic black and dependable dark pieces, this year, we're loving unexpected whites and elegant lights to stand out from the crowd and take a break from our traditional New York uniform. 

Cozy Up

Notes from Rebecca Hessel Cohen, our Founder and Creative Director.

 It's been a long and emotional week for all of us.

We need each other now more than ever, and its moments like these that we are so thankful for all the incredible women who surround us.

There is no better feeling than to be inspired by your friends, so I wanted to share a little editorial that we recently shot with my close friend and Loveshack muse, Julia Restoin Roitfeld. We became friends a few years ago through our little girls, and we’ve had so many unbelievable memories together.

Julia embodies everything that we all aspire to be. Her confidence, beauty, sensuality and free spirited nature is contagious. She is sexy and feminine, mysterious and charming, approachable and aspirational. She has the ability to wear clothes and not let the clothes wear her. She is so much more than a model, she is a career woman and a mom.

So now is the time to get out in nature, grab your cozy knits, and layer them with all the pieces that make you feel like the amazing woman that you are.

 In this story Julia wears our baby alpaca knit sweaters, layered with our silk charmeuse and metallic maxi dresses and our new prairie lace agnes top.   

 Thank you CR and Masha Photo, and Julia for such a gorgeous shoot and feature…

Halloween: Glam Edition

Dressing up as Trump, Hilary or Harley Quinn is so clichéd this year. So let's ditch the flower child hippie costume or the witch hat and go a little glam. A couple accessories can turn your favorite dress or top from everyday to holiday.

Don't worry, you'll still paint the town red...

Trick or Treat...

A Friday with our favorite Brooklyn loveshack babes: model Britt Maren and jewelry designer Leslie OKelley... love, travel and life across the water...

Britt: Brooklyn has some similar vibes to Austin, I think crossing the water and being slightly removed from the craziness of the city is highly beneficial for me as a whole.  After living in the city for a while, Derek and I were ready to make a place our home, and it’s been amazing to do that here in Williamsburg. We have a spare bedroom, so we can have friends and family from back home come and stay whenever. Love in NYC has its ups & downs, but I think when you find that right person, it’s a great place to be, especially when you’re young.

No Boys Allowed...

No Boys Allowed...

Sometimes all you need is a little girl time. Our house in Sagaponack is a very special place to me. We bought it right after my first daughter Scarlett was born and we’ve already created the most incredible memories here with our dearest friends and family. Stella, our youngest little girl, came here when she was only one week old and this house just creates magic. Literally! Every summer is a new amazing adventure, and even though we come out throughout the winter, there is nothing more exciting then spending the warmer months here when the kids can run wild and free outside in nature and the moms can well… drink rose all day long !!
