Maj Anya DeBear
Maj Anya DeBear, this week’s Guest Hunter. Maj Anya is a textile designer and artist based in New York City. She launched her line of luxe printed scarves, Ursidae, after finding out that her father was dying of cancer. The prints are based on a series of tessellation drawings made by him in 1975, and his last wish to his family had been that they help share his designs with the public. She considers Ursidae a family company, hence the name, which translates to ‘the family of bears’ in Latin. All of Ursidae’s scarves are named after members of the DeBear family, or Maj Anya’s close circle of friends.
Maj Anya grew up on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, but is half Danish and spends time in Copenhagen whenever possible (she will happily give you a whole other list of favorite things for that city, if you ask nicely). She collects vintage scarves and kimonos, and hopes that her pieces will be coveted and then passed down from generation to generation, just as her father’s prints were passed on to her. As a Dane, Maj Anya’s ultimate style icon is Karen Blixen, and Maj Anya is occasionally known to don one of her scarves as a turban in an attempt to emulate her.
When she isn’t working, she enjoys board games, fantasizing about time travel and listening to music with a good string section. CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT her super cool picks and some local spots we can’t wait to check out.

Black Poncho Kimono
Orange Disko Kimono
comfort, and as Megan and I always say there’s nothing like a great tee and a pair of jeans (and of course some bright lipstick!). I’ve had my eye on these kimono tops for a while now and without needing to say too much more, any one of these UZI tees would be a great bonus to my wardrobe. Check ’em all out here or here.

Guest Hunter, Lindsay Meyer-Harley
Lindsay Meyer-Harley along for a week of Guest Hunting. Lindsay lives in Brooklyn, owns Children’s shop; Darling Clementine (which is absolutely adorably, by the way – lots of great local designers) and most importantly is mom to a 2.5 year old girl, Juliette.
Lindsay’s also very into design. When asked about her aesthetic, she has this to say: “I can’t pin it down, I like rustic and modern. Vintage and brand spankin’ new. Soft hues and pops of color. I like what makes me happy and some days that’s hot pink and other days cool greys.”. In addition, she’s a fan of lots of good stuff – from iced coffee to guacamole. Here’s what else made the list: “Days spent outside, watermelon in the summer and chestnuts in the winter, salty popcorn, loose boxy tanks and brightly printed pants. Hot pink nail polish, beachy waves and morning croissants.” From her must-checkout shop to what you’ve read so far, you can probably tell, she’s got style and individuality. So, READ ON. Once again, another Guest Hunter with some super cool finds!

as this week’s guest hunter is Lisa Rondholz. She was born in the Garden State and lucky for me, was my neighbor growing up. She was always cutting-edge and surely the coolest kid on the block. She now lives in Park Slope, Brooklyn and is getting married this August (congrats Lisa!). She has worked at Paul Smith for 8 years and often gets the opportunity to travel for work to LA, San Francisco, Vegas and London. And much like us here at threetwentyeight, she enjoys all things food and delicious cocktails.
She’s smart, an individual and very refreshing – so take a look what is topping Lisa’s list by READING ON.

wonderful, everything from Ilana Kohn is. And yes, I’m adding this incredible Wally Jumpsuit to my ever growing wishlist. I also love the subtle print and forgiving shape. A versatile piece that can be worn to the park, to work or for a weekend outing – basically one you can live in.
Guest Hunter, Kellie Kalvig
by the name of Kellie Kalvig is this week’s Guest Hunter. Kellie grew up in the Pacific Northwest and is currently happily living in Brooklyn.

Kellie’s picks were inspired by her love of travel and some of the amazing places she’s been fortunate enough to visit. With her awesome eye, amazing sense of creativity and fun personality, it’s no surprise, her choices are pretty darn badass. So KEEP READING to check out what this worldly lady’s got to say!

Eskayel Ripple Pearl Wallpaper
to Eskayel by Kerry and I’m just wild about the new poolside collection. I’m actually going crazy over everything they offer from the wallpaper, to pillows, and especially the fabric (I’d be happy with even just a sample). Like many other great companies these days, Eskayel is based out of Brooklyn, and if you’re in need of giving your home environment a little kick, this is a great one to turn to.
a Brooklyn company that specializes in smaller, local designers, many of the brands sold at Darling Clementine are near and dear to our hearts here at threetwentyeight. The company’s founder started the boutique after finding special items for her daughter that were too sweet to keep to themselves. In addition to carrying lots of local talent, the shop sells special finds from around the world. Regardless of if sourced from near or far, all items are selected not only for the product itself but for the brand’s view toward the environment, community and humanity. The very (and carefully) curated assortment consists of an ever evolving collection of playthings, books, skincare, home care, décor, and clothing for little ones. Yep, darling pretty much sums it up.
