Miami Fashion: Simple Style

American SpaAs any fashionista knows, being stylish is a full time job. It's a state of mind and a declaration of chic that doesn't stop at the grocery store or at the beach, and it most certainly doesn‚t stop at the gym. We‚re not talking makeup and big hair here (that‚s tacky not tasteful), but we just aren‚t as energetic in ripped sweats and tattered sneaks. No matter how expertly we execute that warrior pose, we‚ll never find inner peace if outwardly we‚re conveying chaos. Enter designer...

Karen De Nunzio and her newly launched active lifestyle line, aptly named the Look Within® Collection. This animal friendly line of bags is lean and stylish- ideally suited for a yoga mat and a handful of workout necessities∑ we‚re thinking keys, lip balm, blackberry and a few bucks. Crafted of plush Ultrasuede, exotic mock-croc, and faux ostrich, these bags are practical and pretty. All are easily cleaned with a damp cloth and all are adorned with antique brass pulls and sturdy braided handles. We think salutations are in order.

Look Within® Active Lifestyle Collection. Modern Yoga and Pilates Accessories

For Immediate Release: (Miami, Florida)

Determined to keep it simple? Living lean and clean? If a mat, key, cell, card, and a few coins are all that make the cut when you finally steal away for a well-earned moment of peace and a re-energizing stretch - this bag is all about you. Designed to accommodate a standard sticky floor mat with ample room for other incidentals, the Look Within® Collection is deliciously lean, stylish, animal-friendly and made in Miami.

The brainchild of ex-New York pharmaceutical uber-exec turned community activist/accessory designer; Miami- based Karen De Nunzio successfully brings a sense of style to the discerning yoga/pilates world. "I launched my premier collection with a signature piece; a no-nonsense floor mat bag that does the job and looks good every step of the way."

Measuring in at a lean and modern 27" long, 5" wide, 7" high with 28" handles (providing ample room for fall/winter outerwear), The Look Within® Active Lifestyle Collection is comprised of (4) basic styles including exotic mock-croc, supple faux ostrich; both lined in a tasteful Fuchsia Marshmallow® (easily maintained with a damp cloth.) The plush Ultrasuedes (easily cleaned with a brush or damp cloth) in both Sage and Saffron are boldly lined in Wisteria Marshmallow® all complete with an inner mini-clutch (on a 13" detachable umbilical) designed to keep valuables safe and accessible. The bags are uniquely adorned with signature Look Within® antique brass pulls and resilient braided handles. The handles are hand-woven coconut tree bark & trimmed with hand-carved rings from water buffalo horns (exhale; no animals harmed or disturbed in this process, the buffalo naturally shed their horns and the horn is a natural, abandoned by-product.)

The suggested retail price is approximately $160.00 and they can be found at specialty boutiques including Brownes & Co., South Beach, Bellezza Spa, South Miami, and other fine boutiques and spas nationwide.
