Feature: Anarchy Street

My favorite online jewelry shop is Anarchystreet.com.  The creator is none other than the fabulous Dani Song.  She is the younger sister of Aimee Song, who is one of the original fashion bloggers.  Aimee and Dani are highly successful entrepreneurs and both are influencing ladies with their cool fashion sense all over the internet.

A lot of my favorite fashionistas wear and promote the on-trend accessories from this online boutique. This business is one of the first that uses fashion influencers to heavily market their pieces predominantly on social media platforms.  This is how I found the shop. I have bought a few of my all-time favorite necklaces from Anarchy Street.  My favorite piece is the gold cactus necklace that reminds me of my favorite destination.

The price point is very affordable, with necklaces running around $30-$40 and there are always deals.  If you go on the site now there is a 15% discount code that pops up.  The shipping is always free and if you are not happy with your item for any reason they provide free returns.  The jewelry ships out in a cute little package and a postcard with the pictures of many trendsetters styling the jewelry in different ways.  I love all the attention to detail that make the packages exciting to receive.

There has been a new shopping trend that has the consumer pay for monthly subscriptions and either be surprised by a mystery box of goodies or get a monthly credit to spend with them each month.  Businesses are getting so savvy by training us consumers to spend with them each month. Anarchy Street has followed this trend and created an Anarchist Box.  It is a monthly subscription of $49 a month, and then you receive at least three handpicked items that are styled to be either worn together or be special enough to wear on their own.

There is also another option on the Anarchy Street website to shop for items by looking on their linked instagram posts.  It showcases different ways to style the jewelry and accessories.  Here are a few of my favorite looks.

I have been extremely happy with all of my pieces so far from this shop.  Plus it is cheap enough to be able to purchase multiple items to layer them together.  Most of the time I am a minimalist with the jewelry I wear, but on that rare occasion I like to mix and match to create an added flair.  It is amazing that Dani Song created an online shopping experience that feels inclusive and easy to be on trend.

Feature: Flying Coffin

The Seattle street wear scene is pretty amazing.  We have some cool independent  stores as well as commercial brands with store fronts.  There have been sad closings over the years of insanely dope stores, such as Goods, Blackbird, and Moksha due to various reasons; and there have been openings of really fresh stores like Alive and Well, Recess, and Likelihood.  These stores are men’s wear driven but I can usually find some cool pieces for myself.

One brand that has survived since 2005 is Flying Coffin led by Jason Gomez.  He is a Hawaii native that calls Seattle home.  Jason has his merchandise in several U.S. boutiques and also found his way overseas into many other countries.  Pretty impressive huh?  His signature logo is a coffin with wings and he is a screen printing genius.  His most recent line utilizes custom puffy ink that makes his lettering look almost 3-D.  His aesthetic has dark gothic imagery with a nonconformist message.  His brand is hardcore!

Our most recent haul.

Jason collaborates with a lot of up and coming and known artists over the years to maintain creativity while keeping his brand consistent.  Jason is currently working with Matt Worthey who is a local graphic designer.  I am super excited to rock my new baby pink beanie.  I hope to find more female wearable items from this male dominated industry.  Fellas don’t forget us females.  We want to look fresh too!
