So, I have settled back to the ground following the whirlwind that is NYC Fashion Week and have returned to my second hometown – the blue sky, big sun City of Angels.

I am a New York gal, as you know, born and bred, but I have to say that L.A. is the yin to my Big Apple Yang and it was with open arms that I welcomed the perfect weather, gold mountains, and white surf.

And what better way to get in the California groove than with my favorite local vintage purveyors, Just Say Native! These young ladies have a knack for sourcing the most beautiful laidback styles, everything from boho dresses to leather jackets, cowboy boots and glitz gypsy accessories.

And denim, oh the denim!

Hillary and Linde met in Michigan and moved to California to pursue all sorts of dreams, nurturing along the way their shared obsession with embroidered silks, thick hand knit wonders, Southwest wovens, wild and wooly macramé –in short, just the sort of luxe wandering traveler vibes you all know I adore!

Their selections also always contain just the right touch of rocknroll edge and disco sparkle and cosmic cowboy whimsy – from black leather to sequined satin  to butterscotch suede fantastic fringe.

So my dears, visit a golden state. Take a gander at the Just Say Native Etsy site and stock up on a sweet and mellow California state of mind.
