Many of you have heard me talk about some of my favorite RVA makers, Jody and Karl of Blackbird Tees, quite a few times here on the blog. 
Well, they have some awesome new designs out and it's a theme and sentiment after my own heart....
Roam Sweet Roam.
As not only fellow makers, but fellow travelers (and taco lovers), these two are somewhat kindred spirits of mine. I'm so thankful to not only have the opportunity to work with such genuine souls like theirs, but to also call them dear friends.  
I mean it's not just anyone you can wander around abandoned airstreams with and make up fake rapper names with and jam out to the likes of Rick Astley... 
(thanks grandma)

Okay okay, what are you waiting for?
Go see the new stuff for yourself
And I'm not just sayin that cause I'm their model. ;)

Shop Local | Blackbird Tees

Small Business Saturday was yesterday, and so in light of that I thought it'd be a good opportunity to give one of my favorite small (and local!) small businesses a little shout out.

Blackbird Tees has been mentioned a time or two here on the blog, so you might be familiar with them, but even if you've already checked out their shop, you need to again because they have some awesome new stuff up! And I'm not just saying that because they asked me to model some of it. 
;)

Jody and Karl are the hard working duo behind Blackbird Tees which they run from a studio here in Richmond. They're pretty much some of the coolest cats around and not only make awesome apparel but killer blondies, have great taste in beer and are excellent printer fixers.
(Not so subtle shout out to Karl for helping me with my printer issues last week...)

No but really, they're pretty great and you should definitely hit them up for some Christmas gifts!
Plus, everything in their shop is on sale right now!

A few of my personal favorites...

Loose Fit Full Moon Tunic

Grizzly Bear Sweatshirt

Night Scouting T-Shirt

Geometric Maxi Dress

Full Moon Tote

Roam Sweet Roam Crop Top

Collaboration | Blackbird Tees

Remember me talking about

Blackbird Tees

awhile back?

Well I'm super excited to finally be able to share some photos with you of some of their awesome shirts!

I seriously love all of

Jody and Karl's

designs. I wear the 

Full Moon Raglan Pullover

 in particular

all

the time. In fact, I think I'm actually in denial that it's summer now and technically a little too warm to wear it as often as I do...

Please go over and check out

their shop

! They have so many lovely things up for sale. Like

these leggings

, cute

totes

, and cool stuff

for guys

too.

And hey Richmonders, they reside right here in 

RVA

!

So what better way to shop local?

Blackbird Tees

Meet Jody and Karl.

They are the shop owners of 

Blackbird Tees

 and I had the privilege of dropping by their studio a month or two ago and learning about their process for making their super cool hand printed apparel!

A friend of mine had shown me their Etsy shop a while back and once I learned they were also fellow Richmond artists, I knew I had to say hello! As small as Richmond can feel sometimes, and for being here all my life, it's surprising the amount of artists and creatives that are in this city that I don't know about. So whenever I come across new ones I love making new connections if I can!

Jody and Karl were so sweet to let me stop by their studio and I loved watching how screen printing works and learning more about the behind the scenes of a full time shop. Karl even gave me a few tips for shipping orders which I need to look into for

my own shop

. ;)

This isn't the last you'll see of these two and their awesome apparel. 

Keep an eye out for an upcoming collaboration I'm doing with them soon!
