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.

I'm not quite sure who said it, but some wise fashion guru once proclaimed that "fashion is all about eventually becoming naked". To be honest, I couldn't agree more. There is nothing more liberating and comfortable that wearing little more than your birthday suit. Unfortunately, we are not all Lady Gaga (as much as we would like to be) and parading around in ensembles that barely cover is more likely to get you arrested than praised. This season, though, you can rock the semi-nude look with tops and blouses made of sheer chiffon and gauzy silks and still be appropriate enough to show yourself in public. With anything from billowing bloussant tops to more structured button-downs getting the semi see-through makeover, you have a variety of ways to wear this latest trend. Pair a draped, voluminous top over a pair of cute shorts or sleek leggings, or tuck a sheer button down into a simple summer skirt. Adding a cami underneath gives extra coverage, or if you're really feeling bold, try pairing the translucent tops with a pretty, brightly colored bra underneath for some peek-a-boo sex appeal.
