First off, a quick request. Whether this is the first time you've come across Bohemian Like You or you're someone who's been popping by for a while, I really appreciate everyone who gives my small space under the internet a look. Google Reader has officially shut down as of today. Most of you follow me on here so if you want to continue to keep reading,  I'd love it if you could please make the switch and follow me on Bloglovin here. Thank you, thank you, thank you.  x
Let's talk about Tiffany Kunz for a minute. It's a LA-based jewelry brand that constructs its beautiful pieces in recycled materials. Gold trinkets that are both unconventionally stunning and eco-conscious? Yes please, I'll take the whole collection. Being "environmentally responsible" can mean so many things today, when such phrases are callously thrown around in press releases (and tweets) to the point of over-saturation. It's a tired phrase and most of us are just downright confused about what any of it actually means. For Tiffany, it involves casting all her pieces in locally sourced reclaimed bronze and silver and then finished by hand in her studio. Additionally (and crucially), all supplies are made from renewable products and by using natural elements and reclaimed stones and metals, she tries, to the best of her abilities, to maintain conscious practices in the studio.  

As a blogger (and in general, someone who enjoys design and has an Internet connection), I see an overwhelming number of new products and lines constantly. It's always exciting to come across a brand that genuinely piques my interest beyond just an aesthetic admiration. I know a lot of times it can seem like the denizens of the blogosphere just rattle off flattery for brands that "sponsor" us but I have always tried to steer clear of that. And as is evident, when it comes to this label, it's not just the effort to be environmentally conscious in an effective way that is impressive; from a sheer visual  point of view, the pieces are gorgeous. Anyone who knows me knows I enjoy minimal clothing and accessories and so this is naturally right up my alley. By using simple silhouettes but innovating through nuanced and remarkable detailing, the dull gold intensive pieces are attention grabbing in their simplicity. And achieving that in a way that hasn't been done to death is no mean feat. 

You'll be seeing much more from them on here. 

Lace on lace. I've fought long and hard with my basic instincts to gravitate toward a skirt like this one because there is already a dizzying number of girls (especially in the city) traipsing around in these since 2008 (or whenever it became the norm to dress between a cross of an Olsen and an avid music festival attendee - a look I, sadly, repeatedly patronize and employ as a personal uniform). However, since I am fairly hedonistic when it comes to shopping for clothing that I will probably wear for half a season before unceremoniously discarding, I jumped right on that bandwagon. I consoled myself that it IS H&M and so at least I wasn't making a serious dent on my bank account, even if I was subscribing to a carbon copy look. Oh, well.

It's not like I profess to have an entirely original look - most days I repeat a well-worn uniform that shifts ever so slightly with the seasons but like with everything else, I have selective mental blocks about conforming to certain cliches. I'm working on not being such a ridiculous person.

I'm going to stop talking about a skirt with such zealousness before my brain turns to mush.
