It’s Happiness Week here on BTR, and there’s almost nothing in fashion that makes me happier than a beautiful linen garment. Today’s guest, Zach Weinstein, is the Sales Director for CP Shades and son of the label’s founder David Weinstein. CP Shades is a collection of beautifully-crafted classic styles made in California from natural fibers like linen, silk, and cotton. It’s one of my personal favorites, and I don’t get much happier than when I can slip into a CP Shades piece! So join us today as we hear the engaging origin story of this unique brand from Zach Weinstein, who will also tell us a bit about the challenges of working with linen fabric, their unique production facilities in San Francisco, and the delicate balance they strike between offering their customer the familiar and the fresh.

Plus, a playlist filled with some of my favorite tracks from 2015 (and the end of 2014), including songs from Emmy The Great, Copeland, and Mike Pace and the Child Actors. So join us for an hour of pure indie fashion + music bliss, with Sew & Tell on BreakThru Radio!

Whether cotton, linen or silk, spring, summer or fall, CP Shades does it in style!

For more CP Shades
– Keep up with new designs, seasonal style releases, and sales through CP Shades on social media: Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
– Shop CP Shades through a variety of brick-and-mortar and webshops, including: Calypso St. Barth, Sundance, Revolve Clothing, Bliss Boutique, and of course, the ever-well-curated Kaight. (P.S. Find the comfortable, versatile Faye slip here!) Because summer just isn’t summer without the perfect beach dress

Odds & Ends
– By a serious oversight on my part, I left out these critical summer style resources from last week’s Odds & Ends section. For a Wet Hot American Summer-worthy selection of vintage denim cut-offs, be sure to visit The Grand Street Bakery in Brooklyn. And for slightly more modest, but no less chic, summertime style, try a pair of authentic, ethically-made madras shorts from The IOU Project. You will wear them with everything from Everlane t shirts to your favorite CP Shades linen button-down.
– Louboutin just released a lipstick this week, and everyone’s going gaga! What do you think? Worth the (gulp) $90 price tag?
