Olga Road - A Path Less Traveled

Olga Road is producing some top notch pieces with a granola ethic - recycling.  Each bike-ready jacket is crafted (in the U.S.A.) from up-cycled leather material.  So, give those marshmallow shaped, bat wing-sleeved thrift store jackets a second glance.  In the hands of Olga Road, they could become go-to pieces.

As seen on Sea of Shoes:

Dyed with Romace

I was working on my bleach technique the other day (still in progress) and thought of Laced with Romance Vintage.  I always find their pieces inspiring, especially the Dust and Drag line.

This one is actually suede!^

Just listed these on Etsy.  More items to come!

Audrey Cantwell could have desinged the wardrobe for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.   The upcoming film features heroine Lisbeth Salandar decked out in leather, black and grey. 

Although Ovate makes a statement, like Salandar, the pieces are not quite over the top.  Any woman who dares would incorporate Ovate's paneled leather leggings into her wardrobe.    

The collection marriages art and toughness, featuring carefully crafted knits, chiffon, and leather.  Some pieces actually remind me of Nine Inch Nails stage wear back in the 90s. 

Read all about it (and pick something out, why don't you?):
