Looking to discover new and obscure brands then click no further than SF-based Earth & Beauty. The online retailer that launched this past October curates a selection of women's clothing and accessories, sourced from around the world. The site is the brainchild of Stephanie Lim, a Harvard grad with a background in marketing and advertising at fashion companies like Modcloth and Bebe. Through her travels, Stephanie discovered contemporary and unique pieces from North America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. A scroll through Earth & Beauty's offerings reveals leather and knits and fur from brands like For Love and Lemons, Ovate, and Carol Wong (just to name a few). Expect the site to add jewelry in the coming year. Until then, find winter closet inspiration from the dreamy lookbook, with dresses and coats galore.
