Ethical Fashion. Go Green for Christmas with Prophetik at goat.boutique.

goat. boutique strives to bring you the best and most unique options for projecting yourself to the world.  When we came across Prophetik, we knew right away that this line was different from the others.  Jeff Garner, the man behind the line, has a very interesting and appealing philosophy behind his brand.  We immediately gravitated toward him and resonated with his way of thinking.  Here is a bit on yet another line we love…Prophetik.

The philosophy behind Prophetik goes a little something like this: There is a battle between what is genuine and true vs. what is artificial and effective in the marketplace.  Prophetik strives to be the former and we can assure you that they are.  This brand is not here to be a blind promise of easy fulfillment. Prophetik is about the ongoing search for authentic purpose and meaning in our lives …

Prophetik works very closely with the AEACP, The Asian Elephant Art & Conservation Project. The AEACP is a non-profit organization dedicated to saving the diminishing number of Asian elephants left on our planet through its work with domesticated elephants. The AEACP raises funds through donations and the sale of artwork created by elephants in order to fulfill its mission. One of our favorite Prophetik pieces is the “Elle” dress which is painted with the trunks of these elephants. “Our partners at elephant art train the elephants to paint on our organic silk and hemp fabric with their trunks, which we use for the “Elle” dress featured in Lucky magazine and our men’s skinny suit” says Jeff.

“My desire is to not just get people to come to a Charity event or go on a missions or service trip but to be truly engaged with self allowing the heart of giving and serving to lead one in life rather than being another event or feel good moment but a constant, not based on condition. Understanding the heart: When you understand, you cannot help but love. You cannot get angry. To develop understanding, you have to practice looking at all living beings with the eyes of compassion. When you understand, you cannot help but love. And when you love, you naturally act in a way that can relieve the suffering of people.” – Jeff Garner

Prophetik is now available at goat. boutique.

goat. loves…A.L.C.

Andrea Lieberman has dressed some of the most iconic fashionistas of our time, from Gwen Stefani to Jennifer Lopez. Now, she’s branching out with her own line of clothing, A.L.C., which is available at goat. boutique.

The collection is a well-edited mix of extremely versatile pieces.Updated wardrobe essentials (the LBD, trouser, white blouse, evening dress, and T-shirt) in sophisticated, easy shapes; practical colors (black, navy, khaki, gray); and gorgeous Japanese cotton, silk chiffon, twill, and tropical-weight wool are the label’s focus.

When Lieberman announced the line to WWD in September, she said she doesn’t intend to quit her day job. “For me, styling was a great creative outlet,” she said, “because I had the great fortune of working with people who in effect became my muse, and I was able to help them with their image.”

Dressing for the Holidays.

There’s so much pressure and planning that surrounds the holidays.  The best part of the season is-for us anyways- getting ready!  This part of the celebration can quickly turn into a not-so-joyous occasion if A) You don’t know what to wear or B) You don’t have what you want to wear.  We can help you with both.  The goal is to create an outfit that has a little more glitz and glamour than usual and to have fun with your look.

A little cocktail dress, especially one with some shine and sequins, is the quintessential holiday ensemble.  If it will be chilly pair it with opaque tights and a fur wrap to keep you warm!

While we love party dresses, we are also quite keen on the idea of a pair of silky dress pants worn with a sequined top or a sequined blazer with a simple tank or tee.  It’s a little unexpected and we love the unexpected.

Another route you can take is to wear the LBD and glam up your hair and makeup.  We suggest that you try something new with your makeup…like a copper smokey eye or a deep red lip.

Go For: Sequin Skirts, Faux-Fur Jackets, Silk Bottoms, Costume Jewelry, Lace Tights, Dark Red Lips…

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. Nouvella Royale.

goat. boutique likes to provide you with the best when it comes to brands.  We are now carrying a brand we love, Nouvella Royale.  Not only do we love the handbags, but we love the fact that they are made from recycled leather jackets. Novella Royale was inspired by the concept of designing luxury handbags without creating waste from new materials. The leather from each bag is hand cut from vintage jackets, making each piece a one-of-a-kind in color, distressing and seaming. In addition to using only recycled leather, each bag is lined with organic fabric and hand made in Los Angeles. To us, details matter…sometimes it’s the small things that matter most.  Nouvella Royale handbags all come in a custom killer vintage branded bag to protect your leather once purchased.  Named after her daughter, Nouvella Royale…Mary Myers wants to impart her waste-not-want-not, vegetarian, eco friendly views upon us by providing us an avenue to purchase real leather handbags made from recycled leather.  We want to provide that same avenue to you at goat. boutique.  There are few things in this world better than worn-in leather.  Mary says “People may beg to differ, but studding and fringe aren’t trends-they’re an aesthetic- it’s a matter of how you interpret them from season to season-but they’ll always be around.”

thank God for Caroline B. goat. loves her.  here is a guide to DIY bunny ears.  just in time for halloween…

This is our guide on how to do lace bunny ears yourself. really easy and cheap. and fun!
You need: scissors, lace, pipe cleaners, diadem, needle and thread.

1. Connect two pipe cleaners by twisting them together and then form them to look like bunny ears. Save a few centimeters to connect with the diadem in the next step.
2. Attatch the formed pipe cleaner ears to the diadem by twisting the ends of the pipe cleaner ears on to the diadem.
3. Now cover the diadem with the rest of the pipe cleaners to get a furry look! Just twist them on there!
4. This is what it should look like now.
5. Measure the lace and cut it a couple of centimeters outside of the ears shape.
6. Now it’s time to sew. Get needle and thread and make a few stitches around the ears. I made a stitch about every three centimeters. When you’re done you can cut the lace the way you want it, more or less outside the edges of the ears.
7. Ok, so now you done! Get your ears on!
