Accessories can make or break any outfit — and, while it's no secret that D.C.'s got some serious bauble-design cred
, that doesn't mean our neighbors to the south don't know what's up, too.
Richmond (already one of our fave road-trip destinations
) has some major talent of its own, including Thief & Bandit
designer Amie Cunningham, who splits her time between the Virginia hotspot and Nova Scotia, making colorful headwraps, bracelets, leggings, and even kids' clothes with a sort of edgy-hippie, Where the Wild Things Are
sensibility. A fabric cuff bracelet with a simple black-and-white motif could easily go from office to after-hours; a feather-shaped headband made of glam gold-metallic leather would be chic for a harvest-season party...really, so many practical applications, all around.
To promote the newest collection, the brand teamed up with D.C. photographer Amber Mahoney of Present Company Project
, who lent her trademark dreamy-vintage feel to a new autumn lookbook. The pics show the wares styled with a cool, urban edge — and we're thinking the model's fabulous hair will probably inspire a few hot-pink dip-dye jobs.
