cloud and victory

I was recently introduced to Cloud & Victory, a ballet-inspired line of clothing suitable for workouts and for everyday wear, and was instantly smitten! The designs are lovely and I always appreciate a dance aesthetic in my activewear, especially over a more technical one. And importantly, Cloud & Victory’s clothing is manufactured by companies that adhere to the UNs fair labour standards, and is sometimes made with recycled materials. The designs are so playful, romantic and humorous, and definitely a little wink at those of you who have been dancing your whole lives. The leggings are gorgeous, with beautiful colours and watercolour-like effects, made of comfortable, durable, silky nylon (I have the peacock leggings and I love them).

Also, C&V has a blog featuring interviews with dancers, and cute posts like this Degas one, that is well worth reading! Cloud & Victory happens to have a sale on at the moment, until May 27th: use code CV15 for 15% off at checkout.


new collections from n. historiae & a giveaway

A couple of years ago I wrote about a new line of jewelry by Flora Lam, N. Historiae. I’m happy to share that she has added a few new collections for 2015. Once again Flora has combined history and nature to create something truly unique and eye-catching, drawing inspiration from medieval and Moorish lines and shapes, and in some cases, beetles.

Flora has generously offered a set of Geometrica ringlets to one lucky winner, who will choose two rings from the collection. They are made of 22 kt gold vermeil. To enter, please follow @nhistoriae on Instagram. More details on my Instagram account here.

Additionally, from May 19th until May 26, use the code FIELDGUIDED for 15% off any purchase.
