This week, we caught Jayma Mays talking to E! News about Raven + Lily, one of our favorite empowerment companies.
Jayma, also known as Miss Pillsbury to Glee fans, has teamed up with Raven + Lily as a celebrity ambassador – sharing the story of how small women’s cooperatives in Ethiopia, India, Cambodia and LA are turning bullets into beads, making beautiful jewelry, bags, clothing and scarves with the help of Raven + Lily’s talented band of designers. By employing marginalized women, many of whom are HIV+, at fair trade wages, Raven + Lily gives them access to a safe job, sustainable income, healthcare, education and a real chance to break the cycle of poverty for themselves and their families. Every product from Raven + Lily is handmade, fair trade and eco-friendly – plus, like Jayma says, the entire collection is beautifully designed, perfectly wearable and expertly crafted.
Watch the clip and then come see us to shop some of the pieces Jayma features. We’re currently stocked with our favorite Raven + Lily accessories in-store, plus a few of our bestsellers online. And let us know which pieces catch your eye by connecting with us on Facebook or Twitter. We’d love to hear what you think!

The weather’s finally warming up and we couldn’t wait to get out into the sun. So we rounded up a few of our spring must-haves — lightweight cotton, layering essentials, sandals and shorts — and headed out to the park for a quick photo shoot and a picnic lunch (provided by our friends at Native Roots Market). Jesse & Sarah, two of our loyal customers, are wearing some of our favorite new arrivals this season. Pops of color and personable accessories highlight this cute couple’s youth and energy, while natural fabrics and tailored fits keep their looks grounded. We loved how confident, yet feminine, Sarah looked in our boldly patterned shorts. And Jesse rocked that crocheted bow tie with the perfect amount of nerdy charm.
Shop these spring looks online. Or come visit us at the shop and we’ll help you create your own.
