A tropical moment

I love seeing how Talia of Talia Studio and The Sister Files interprets Bombay Mermaid. She’s been on the blog before, along with her sister (and my sister-in-law!) rocking our colorful prints and boho-inspired styles. These photos of Talia wearing the pom pom kimono sleeve robe from the Bombay Mermaid 2014 collection are completely amazing. I love the way the sunlight catches in the fabric, and that pop of mint trim looks amazing with her complexion and hair color. Such a beauty!

Mariana Yegros in Bombay Mermaid

So excited to post these shots of Mariana Yegros of La Yegros in Bombay Mermaid Trading Co. These photos were shot on the band’s first US tour in September around the streets of Williamsburg by Israeli photographer Ayala Gazit. The team had a blast running around Brooklyn, searching out graffiti and cool spots to capture Mariana’s amazing energy.

With 12 international tours under her belt, she is a force to be reckoned with (and she also went home with a Bombay Mermaid poncho to rock out with on tour). Special thanks to my dear friend and producer Allie Silver for linking us up and making this happen.

Two stylish sisters

I’d like to introduce you to two stylish sisters who are very dear to my heart. Becca is my sister-in-law: an amazing mother, artist, creator, and inspiration based in New York. She runs Little Otto Shop (named after my sweet potato nephew), where she sells quirky, gorgeous handmade jewelry and accessories. Becca is always creating and dreaming up new products in the midst of her busy life, and she you’ll never see her in an outfit that’s anything less than brilliant.

Natalia is an incredible professional photographer and gifted story-teller—see her work at TaliaStudio, based in San Diego, California—who juggles being a super-mom (her two little ones are gems, to say the least, destined for a stylish future of their own) with producing dreamy, timeless photos of her clients, and running her business like a champ.

It’s an honor to see them wearing Bombay Mermaid on their joint blog, The Sister Files. See more of these outfits here and here.
