Butterfly Twists – Fly Away in Flats!

Butterfly Twists Packaging and Side View

Just when I thought there wasn’t another pair of flats to excite me, in comes Butterfly Twists to sweep me off my feet!  Launched in 2009 by four close friends in London, Butterfly Twists started as an exciting dream, but in just a few short years the company has grown in remarkable ways.  They came packaged in a small box, folded up with a pouch inside and I love the simplicity but girlish design of the box!

Butterfly Twists are redefining style, comfort and fashion and specialize in affordable, practical footwear that can be worn every day.  Their signature ballerina flats are perfectly designed to fold away and fit into even the smallest clutch or handbag.  The flats have become an essential accessory for any girl on the go who constantly needs to swap her heels for a comfy alternative. These stylish multi-purpose ballerina shoes are ideal no matter what the occasion!  What I like about these is not only can you wear them when your feet are tired from heels, but they can be everyday flats!  Whether you’re traveling, going to work, running errands or just want a comfort shoe, Butterfly Twists rises to the occasion.

Butterfly Twists is stocked in specialty boutiques, department stores and online retailers across the UK. With international expansion also happening rapidly, the products can now be found in stores throughout the world. Celebrities such as MC Lyte, Nadia Bjorlin and Kyle Richards from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are some of the famous feet they have been on.  If you get a pair you won’t regret it!

Silky Smooth Wearable Art – Bryony Shearmur

A lot of the brands I write about originate from events I attend and the curiosity to learn more.  I went to the Hollywood Style Awards and loved the photographer who took black and white snapshots of attendees and made sure to get her business card.  As I was leaving, I was handed the same card by another individual and all he said was “you should check this out.” Enter Silk by Bryony Shearmur.

Bryony is an artist who has taken her photography to the next level by making it wearable in the form of silk scarves and pocket squares.  Originally from London, she was inspired by the things she loves about LA , thus creating a collection as a tribute.  Since moving to the city in 2001, she had the vision to have her images presented in some type of printable form and silk was the key to bring them to life.

I had the opportunity to meet with Bryony and see firsthand the high quality and uniqueness of her scarves.  I immediately fell in love with these beautiful works of art from cherry blossoms to mustard seeds!  Made of 100% Habotai silk, each scarf is handfinished and signed by Shearmur.  They are definitely making their mark on the fashion industry, with a recent feature on Extra as a holiday gift idea.

These accessories are a great conversation piece and will enhance any outfit you wear, adding a bit of LA captured in a “real” moment.
