I've been wanting a cute tunic for awhile now, so when NOVICA contacted me a few months ago offering to send me a gift from their lovely site, I knew exactly what to choose. They have a variety of gorgeous, handmade, hand blocked tunics. I ended up going with this gorgeous hot pink one with turquoise detailing, and I can't wait to wear it to the beach! Hurry up warm weather!

 NOVICA is one of the leading fair trade artisan websites. They work with National Geographic to give talented artisans around the world a place to express their artistic talents and provide access to the world market. I'm a huge fan of anything fair trade, and the tunic was sent to me beautifully wrapped all the way from India, with a picture of the artisan and a personalized note. So sweet. The quality of the tunic is great and it's so lightweight and perfect for summer.

I also seriously considered getting these tortoise shell glasses for my bar cart:
They remind me of this shot of one of my favourite dining rooms ever:

NOVICA truly has a site full of wonderful treasures. I encourage you to check it out and support fair trade! My one word of caution is that shipping on some of these items will cost you a fair amount (although this is UPS brokerage fees.. not Novica's fault) , but prices on the objects themselves are very reasonable and, in my opinion, 100% worth it!
Right now they've got some great gift ideas for mother's day!:

Thank you so much NOVICA for my beautiful tunic.

What a cool site! Anything that supports local or worldwide vendors is cool in my book! You couldn't have picked a cuter piece!
