Magnolia Pearl – Behind the Scenes

I oh-so-love Magnolia Pearl bags and clothing, it’s hippie glam at it’s finest–along with being green, they  recycle vintage textiles by finding and turning them into amazing works of art. Magnolia Pearl is also featured in Country Living magazine’s April 2008 issue. Check out the article and photo montage. The big news is that she’ll soon have a book – due out this summer.

So, naturally, I was thrilled to find these two videos that Robin “Pearl” Brown (aka, Magnolia Pearl) created to showcase some of her new Spring clothing and give a behind-the-scenes insight into how Robin’s mind works…

Robin’s Interview:


What’s Behind Door No. 4?

Perhaps the name is a spin on the oh-so-trendy “Let’s Make a Deal” game show that graced the small screen back in the ’70s, but I have to tell you Door Number 4 is one of my favorite shops on Etsy. Being that I’m on a serious Peacock kick, I found the most amazing 60s seed bead covered oversized peacock purse ever at Door No. 4 and it sealed the deal. I’m keeping an eye on this shop. No I won’t be giving up my precious bag anytime soon (see pic below), but I will say that there are lots of mod and retro trendy goods to be had behind those doors.

My latest aquisition:

As of today, some of the super cool retro chic things you’ll find behind the Door include:

Super chic ’80s butterfly sweater: $68

A pair of matching “Go Go Madness” sunglasses: $30

Or how about an Aquarium around your neck for inspiration? $46
