Jil Sander Inspired

Hello all and Merry Christmas next week! We took some inspiration from Jil Sander's fall 2012 collection with this outfit (Melody wore out to christmas concerts before it was too cold to take on bare legs). And here is Melody's time to write a little tribute to her husband's Grandma Bea.

The nice thing about being up on the trends, is when you see something interesting, you have a knowledge that it can possibly work. So, on with Grandma Bea. She was a bit of a hoarder. Funny though, she had the opposite problem of us, she never hoarded her clothes. So when Melody found this red cashmere coat buried deep in a guest bedroom closet (when Grandma Bea passed on this fall), she knew she had to keep it. Grandma Bea was like her own grandmother, calling her when she was sick, giving her little things etc. She will be missed, but when Melody wears this big red coat, she'll forever remember ol' Bea. So this christmas Sunday you bet Melody will be sporting the big red coat in honor of Miss Bea.

Thanksgiving Table

OK, so you're probably thinking, where the heck did they go? And now they come back with Thanksgiving? Well we've had a such a blessed year and we're excited to actually be home to give thanks for it. Melody woke up this morning and got so excited for Thanksgiving that she went ahead and decorated her table early. It's always nice to find things around your property that could be used...grasses...berries etc. (I don't even know what these berries are?) We hope your thanksgiving is filled with utter joy. We're not really sure what is going to happen with the blog this next year, but we'll figure it out. Thanks for being such great followers regardless!  With much love, Desi and Mel.

(Here's a little bitty for you and what we're thankful for this year)

Last night on Piers...

If we were smart we would've taken full outfit pictures, but we were just slightly preoccupied. Melody's dress is by Asos. Desirae's is from our closets. Happy Wednesday!

Late summer floral

We apologize for the massive break Thread Ethic has been taking. As we have briefly mentioned, there are some very exciting things happening for us regarding our day jobs. First off, we are having our Carnegie Hall debut on October 18 (in a month)! Surrounding this will be a PR run that starts with us on Piers Morgan on Sep. 24. From there we will keep you updated as to where we'll be and what we'll be on. We will be instagraming on Thread Ethic and on The 5 Browns, as well as tweeting on both outlets through the excitement. You can also keep up with us via The 5 Browns Facebook page.

And now for the look today, this is a dress Melody has been wearing all spring and summer. She saw it pop up on Zara for Mother's day and couldn't resist such perfection. She was completely surprised to find it just recently on We had to check multiple times to see if that said $14.90. Yes, that is 14.90. Keep in mind if you're ordering from Sammy dress that it costs more to ship than sometimes it does for the clothing. So definitely order your pieces in bulk.

Lastly, if you want a floral dress that will take you into the fall, this floral number from Zara should do it. Thanks for being patient with us! We'll try to update on some of the events when we can!

Burberry Prorsum Resort '14

Some beautiful clothing hot off the fashion press. Notice how the longer pencil cut skirt is quite the rage in the coming season. So lovely!

Great Gatsby White

For some reason whenever we think of white on white with cable knit, we think of Gatsby and the actual 20's posh tennis look. This is an incredibly easy outfit to wear. This is the cable knit sweater Melody bought and you can easily pair with any wide leg trousers. We know we've shown a similar outfit before, but we couldn't resist throwing the cable knit in there all in the spirit of Gatsby.

By the way, you know we've gotten SUPER DUPER busy when the blog falls by the wayside and hasn't been updated. Instead of trying to kill ourselves off, we are going to take an actual break since we're recording our 6th album in 2 days! So, we will say goodbye for a week and will hope to see you all on the other side when we get back!
