Hadley Pollet...from Belts to Yoga!!!

As most of you know I work Saturday mornings at a local yoga studio. I also am into stylish and unique accessories. A few Saturdays ago I struck up a conversation with a stylish woman- the bag she was carrying was utterly divine! We exchanged names- and I knew hers! Hadley Pollet! Not only did I know her name, I actually own a couple of her belts! I was thrilled not only was Hadley super sweet and stylish she was also a like-minded yogi.
Hadley shared with me that morning that soon she would be launching her first yoga apparel line! I was totally excited as I adore seeing the latest and hippest yoga wear! I am of the belief it must be comfy as well as stylish! I checked out Hadley's website to see for myself! The tops are simple and elegant with the Chakra's running down the front of the top. Gorgeous cardigans again with chakras running down the back and a comfy fit perfect for going for a post-class smoothie! There is also a long cardigan in black with Chakra's which would be divine over a cami or with Hadley's yoga pants with her signature Chakra design down the side.

I am really excited as this line will be launching this coming weekend at the Yoga Wanderlust Festival. Hadley will be there at Booth 18. If you are lucky enough to attend Wanderlust stop by and say hello to her!

E-Trunkin' Sunday...

On Sunday's in New Milford, CT there is a fabulous piece of what I call utopia, it is the Elephant Trunk Flea Market. It is one of the most fun places I can ever be oh so early on a Sunday morning..I live about an hour away and usually go with my dear friend the ever so stylish Marina. The ride entails lattes, music, laughs and conversations that range from anything from life to style tips which we frequently share with each other. We arrive, park on the lawn along with the hundreds of other cars, pay the 2.00 entrance fee and than meander..for hours! I went yesterday for the first time this season and enjoyed yet another amazing experience! We walk through the gates and start to gaze around at everything! The E-Trunk as I like to call it, also has a Farmers Market with oodles of the freshest produce available; an Italian stand with the cheeses, sausages and well as the local AM radio station "Italian House Party" all this is addition to miles and miles of style inspiration and chic stylish deals..I once bought 400 thread count, 600 twist Egyptian cotton bed linen set for 10.00 from a local company downsizing!! Yesterday I scored a zen looking Buddah for my yoga space at home and some pretty sachets made from vintage fabric and filled with French Lavender from the ever so lovely, Lana. There was a local upholstery fabric/custom design furniture shop,TigerLily that was selling the prettiest toiles and linens ever- with the ever so stylish Owner, Betsy Knapp and her daughter Samantha, they can actually be found online at
I wish that all of you would be able to enjoy a gorgeous day like I enjoyed at the Beautiful Elephants Trunk in New Milford, CT!!
