Inspired By: Tee Time

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then street style replication is fashion flattery at its finest.

Today’s street style inspiration is centered on one of the most effortlessly cool wardrobe staples around: the graphic tee. Even on our laziest days, the ubiquitous graphic-print tee instantly offers style redemption with its cool, laidback vibe!

We translated this comfy look with a gritty burnout tee underneath a military-inspired twill jacket. The pop of bold color in the beanie just gives that extra oomph on those days when you just want to roll out of bed and go!

New Brand Spotlight: Fig Clothing

FIG® Clothing is a Canadian sportswear brand for active, urban, and elegant women who love to travel. The collection is inspired by adventure and practicality.

With FIG, it is fast and easy to switch your style by simply changing from a sandal to a high heel shoe! FIG's COMMITMENT FIG clothes are developed and manufactured entirely in Canada. This business model allows the company to encourage the local workforce and limit travel related to the production and distribution of its clothes. It is not only a part of the DNA of the brand. It allows FIG to have better quality control and respond quickly to its clientele's needs. This commitment also encourages FIG to choose Canadian fabrics as well as organic fabrics whenever interesting options exist.

The SAFARI and CHALET collections are in fact great alternatives for eco-responsible clients! Why FIG? The FIG leaf symbolizes the invention of clothing, with Adam and Eve as original models. Since the company's mission is to keep things simple and down to the essentials, what better way is there to illustrate it than with a fig? In the language of choreography, fig. is short for figure (as in dancing figure, acrobatic figure). In other words, movement and action . . . things for which FIG is designed. Figure also evokes the silhouette, the shape of a woman. In this regard, FIG collections are designed to flatter and celebrate the female body.

Staff Picks: Places We Love

Experience the places we love through our eyes. These are the places we go to escape, to recharge, and to be inspired. They ground us, they move us, they challenge us, but above all, they leave a lasting impact that resonates through all aspects our lives.

Below is a small sampling as seen through the eyes of Zappos Family employees: Anji, Bill, Erica, and Song-I. Enjoy their perspectives and photographs from their personal collections, unedited and unfiltered.

Anji’s Escape:

“Central Nevada is chock-full of amazing remote peaks such as Toiyabe Dome. This vast area is one of my favorite summertime spots to hike as it offers a great escape where you can fall off the grid. The mountains will humble you with their beauty, challenge and dominating views.” --Anji

Bill’s Adventure:

“I planned my entire three-week Thailand adventure on a photo of this climb as I was surfing the web one night. One year later my girlfriend snapped this picture of me on my first red point on the wall.” -Bill

Erica’s Exploration:

“My favorite hike is the Mosquito Flat Trailhead in the Sierras. It’s one of the most stunning places I have ever seen in person and every step of the hike makes me grateful that I’m there to see it. It runs into the John Muir Trail and when I read this quote I understand why he said it given such surroundings: “Few places in this world are more dangerous than home. Fear not, therefore, to try the mountain passes. They will kill care, save you from deadly apathy, set you free, and call forth every faculty into vigorous, enthusiastic action.” Being in nature clears my mind and has a way of removing all the unimportant thoughts clogging my brain. I always leave feeling renewed and inspired.” -Erica

Song-I’s Scramble:

“I love scrambling up rocks after a difficult week.  This is me in a high crevice we found at the Valley of Fire, and the colors were absolutely breathtaking.  There's just something so meditative about scrambling -- you have to be both focused and relaxed as you take each step, making sure you're in sync with your momentum, footwork, and the boulders beneath you.  It's incredibly satisfying to constantly re-shift and focus your mind away from every thing else happening in life with every step you take deeper or higher into the solace and comfort of nature.” -Song-I
