Add color + structure: Frrry

July 19 2013

While traveling in Belgium, I had the chance to meet the talented Ferry Meewisse, founder and visionary of the Frrry brand. After visiting the showroom, it reenforced my excitement in introducing my customers to the Frrry brand. Pronounced (FAIR – REE emphasis on REE) the brand is about structure and solving design issues artfully and practically. Founded in 2002 in The Netherlands and using vegetable tanned Italian leather, creator Ferry Cornelis Gerardus Meewisse, bases the blueprint for each product on how it relates to the foldings and structures of the style's design. He does not focus on making up new forms or following fashion trends or calendars.


I am excited to introduce you to the Frrry collection that is exclusively sold to roztayger in the US. I have curated a collection of totes, wallets and bags that will add color and structure to your look! I have highlighted a few of my favorite Frrry bag trends for the season…

In Ferry's words - "The moment of presentation of new designs does not necessarily coincide with the seasons. Moreover the lifespan of a design is not defined by cursory trends, but by renewal within the collection."

Just Beachy!

July 12 2013




From striped swimwear to your most stylish beach gear, you will be looking your best during your coastal getaway! Beach vacations should be worry-free from beginning to end, so stressing about packing for your trip can't happen! The key is to pack smart, comfy and stick with pieces that make sense for your trip and can transition from day to night! I have put together a collection of a few of my favorite great beachy pieces from utility canvas, lovell, suntegrity, lola millinery, malia mills, alice park - to help make your packing process as smooth as possible!

I love both the utility canvas and Lovell totes shown above and use both! The Lovell tote works great over the shoulder as a day bag and has a special spot for my phone and other items inside. It is not so easy to find in a summer tote so when I found this one I knew my customers needed it too! It's well lined and beautifully finished so its not a throwaway canvas bag. The utility canvas bag is of a super solid construction and holds anything you might need to schlep from towels, food, extra shoes, etc. - it's hearty and made to transport in a big bold cheerful way!


 
Suntegrity-375Picture 9

As a must, you have to have a hat and the Lola Millinery fedora is the perfect solution for moderate sun protection! Its top of the line cool and quirky style but you will still need that SPF in place and reapplied every 2 hours. Another great product I just discovered from Ayla Beauty (my favorite go to skin care site - all natural, edited and has intelligent research behind it by Harvard graduate Dara Kennedy) is Suntegrity a 5-in-1 Natural Moisturizing Sunscreen. I am always searching for the perfect all in one BB cream and this is it! This is the best I have found so far and great if you are pale. It has 30SPF, light coverage, moisturizing and has anti-oxidants!

Swimsuit shopping is always tough and frankly unpleasant for most of us ladies! Who else agrees? I'm going to share a secret. Try Malia Mills. Years ago, I found the one bikini that works for my curves and makes me feel reasonably comfortable in a swimsuit (no easy task) !!! I have stuck with that suit for years now and buy a new one every few years (usually black or brown!) Her quality is amazing and she makes great color options that are classic but have a bit of edge. You can buy tops and bottoms separately and they hold up over time beautifully. Mills designs with real women's bodies in mind and celebrates our differences and perceived imperfections - you can see this in her ad campaigns! They are an investment but I have found well worth it!

If you are like me, heading down to the beach with 2 kids and a husband is quite a task! With arms full of chairs, bags and umbrellas, the last thing for me to worry about is where the car keys are located or if my phone is out to sea. This is were my necessaire bag by shawn burke and key fob by alice park come in handy! Connect to my bag, throw in my purse or have in hand these essential accessories make my life easier!

Possibilities Along the Way

July 02 2013


ro bag next

Like many, I imagine, I travel for two main reasons—work and play. I have had the good fortune to travel most of my life; from the Winnebago “camping” trips of my youth to the deserts of California and Nevada, the quiet shore of Lake Michigan, Brooklyn, one epic honeymoon to Paris and scores of places in between and along the way.

When I travel, I try to find something that is truly and uniquely of that place; something that wouldn't or couldn't have become real anywhere else. The Billy Goat in Chicago, KEXP in Seattle, General Store in San Francisco and Powell's Books in Portland all come to mind. These are the places and things that tell me about a place—who its people are and how they are, how they make their way and make their places.

Ro Bags MatchAs I'm writing this I'm in one of my favorite spots near my home in Grandview Heights, Ohio and that reminds me that these places are not always on the other end of a plane ride. I have been coming to Stauf's Coffee Roasters for more than 15 years. They were one of the first places in central Ohio to offer free WiFi and I have used it a lot over the years. Stauf's is not fancy or even the best at food or customer service. What Stauf's IS good at is being what it is—a comfortable, accepting place to sit and have a coffee, read a book, write, hang with family and friends and be in the midst of people doing their things.

When I hit the road, I struggle with what to pack—I do the weather--meetings—events--comfort--”don't look like a tourist”--dance in my head. Do I really want to wear black for the next three days? I have a few Ro bags from Roztayger.com that keep me organized and concise. There's something satisfying about getting all you need into a couple of beautiful matching bags. It says “hey fellow travelers, I got together.”

I am, more often than not, guilty of over-packing and each time I think I'm getting better at it—flexible and expandable carry-on and messenger bags are indispensable because I inevitably bring back some piece of the place—t-shirts, rocks from beaches (yes, I have boxes of rocks that remind me of things) and gifts. So my next bag will be something rugged and flexible like the Ro Tribecca bag from Roztayger.com.

I do my research before a trip (I'm still looking for that one go-to resource that highlights the best places from my point-of-view) but to really find the best places, I ask locals and fellow travelers. I strike up conversations about what is good and interesting. Simple questions like “What do you do in your free time around here?” and “What's the best thing about this place?” can yield some interesting ideas and suggestions.

I have a collection of t-shirts that show off some hometown pride that I like to bring along with me. Occasionally they illicit a nod or start a conversation, but mostly they are a bit of home I can have with me. Chatting with the locals is how we found Hurricane Ridge in Washington's Olympic National Park—a breathtaking drive up through the park to a view my family and I will never forget. This is also how we discovered the famous Junior's in Brooklyn—the anti-loca-vore food heaven.

When I travel for business, I try to squeeze in what I call side trips. These little excursions to unique neighborhoods or events can really balance out hours-long meetings in skyscrapers or suburbs. Last summer on a day trip to Chicago, I took a short walk from my meetings in the Loop to Millennium Park. I expected just to be among people not talking about deadlines and what I got instead was a lovely few hours listening to the Chicago Symphony playing in the Frank Gehry-designed band shell. After that, I took a short walk to The Billy Goat—the cheeseburger place made famous by a 1970s Saturday Night Live skit. It's pretty much like the skit and these people were not acting.

Sometimes it's worth taking a later flight.


For spring break this year, and to celebrate our daughter's 16th birthday, we hung out in Brooklyn for a few days. We asked friends about their favorite places and things to do, checked as many online sources as we could to piece together a good time in the limited time we had there. A smart, sophisticated and generous with her experiences friend—Suzi West of CollierWest in Brooklyn—gave us a list of not only what to do, but why. Her perspective and opinion really helped us out.

For the big birthday dinner, we settled on Buttermilk Channel, a restaurant that sounded perfect—an innovative locally-sourced menu and an atmosphere that was special but not too fancy. It pretty much was perfect—except our 13 year old son's appetite wasn't quite satisfied. As we strolled back to our hotel, checked out the knitting store / coffee shop combo right next to the traditional butcher shops and the neighborhood where my wife lived after college with the statues of the Virgin Mary guarding the corners. Along the way my son let us know that pizza would be a really good idea.

We found Vinny's that night—a Suzi West recommendation—a seemingly ordinary pizza place with a long counter, a few seats in the back and a HUGE screen showing the surfer/crime classic Point Break starring Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze. We couldn't leave. It was the climactic ending and the kids had never seen anything like it—a rare acting achievement—let alone had pizza of this magnitude. It was one of the most memorable moments in a trip filled with all manner of New York-ness. The guys working at Vinny's treated us like regulars and that's what made it so memorable. We felt like we could have hung out there all night if we wanted.

Ultimately, you bring back what you are open to experiencing. You can find the perfect bag, use the miles to get the best price and schedule and find the recommendations of friends and experts, but if you forget to take a moment to forget all those expectations you may miss out on the joy on your kid's face watching a perfectly cheesy movie while devouring their fourth piece of world-class pizza.
