Beautiful intricate designs that give back to the community. There's nothing better than that! Gadogado, started by designer Belinda Kazanci, has an origin as interesting and exotic as it's name. A childhood in Instanbul surrounded her with lush and gorgeous textiles, as well as a family of women that understood the value of both textiles and clothes-making. Then, inspiration hit and Gadogado was born during a trip to the magical island of Bali. Gadogado is all about unique prints and versatile styles as well as hand finished embellishments and details. Done by hand by local craftsmen, Gadogado designs are able to remain authentic while giving locals the opportunity to show their skills while still caring for their families. Gadogado is also extremely conscious of the environment and believes in using recycled materials and producing minimal waste. Plus, they're in the works of partnering up with a non-profit orginization that helps women in third world countries to start their own businesses and to be self sufficient.

Fun in the sun? Yes please! But only if it's done in style! You've found the perfect bikini (or two), the cutest sandals, some killer shades and ... what a pity to stuff them into a plain, boring tote or ... dare we say it?? A crinkly, bummy plastic shopping bag. Sure, a beach bag is just for you to hold your stuff in, but that doesn't mean you can't express yourself through it! We're thinking something roomy that you can stash everything in, but crushable or pliable so you can lay on it, stuff it in between the other bags or toss it onto the beach towel with no worries. Something eye-catching - bright colors, cool prints - also makes for a stylish beach tote. And with a beach tote, you don't have to spend a lot to get a lot! Check out these fashionable faves for $25 or less!
