The mermaids are the brainchild of artist Laurie Beth Giacumbo (just "Beth" to her friends). Born and raised at the Jersey Shore, Laurie was taking art lessons at an early age. A course in Collage for Fashion Merchandising led to a career as a bartender (go figure), but her love for art endured even while she was busy slinging drinks. After moving in to a townhouse on the beach with her wonderfully encouraging husband, she started painting everything - floors, walls, and furniture - and mermaids turned out to be a recurring theme. As Laurie puts it, "They're happy, silly, and lots of fun."
Laurie's sea sirens are crafted from paper, paint, pastels, die cuts, and glitter (ALWAYS lots of glitter). As Beth says: "they're made with love and laughter, and frequently a glass of merlot!"

A great tee can be hard to find, but these ones by Stellarocco (newly arrived at The Pink Pig) are just right! We love the girly-zen feel of their designs and their body-conscious shapes. They’re 100% cotton, so they’re totally breathable, too. Perfect for layering on those summer nights when you’re off to watch the fireworks or to grab dinner on a patio with friends.
We’ve got ‘em in four organically-inspired prints (left to right as shown above):
- “Chinois Flower” tee
- “Poppies” cap-sleeve tee
- “Island Flowers” short-sleeve tee
- “Palm Berries” scoop-neck tee
These tees are one of those ideas that’s super simple, but flawlessly executed. The silk-screened prints look amazing peeking out from underneath a blazer or cardigan.
