Plus, a sporty collab between blogger Grace Atwood and activewear line Addison Bay

Sporty Collab
Local lifestyle blogger Grace Atwood, founder of The Stripe, has recently introduced a capsule collection with Philadelphia-based activewear brand Addison Bay. The collaboration features 13 pieces, including a striped “Grace” dress, a sleeveless ”Sullivan” dress, and ”Tradd” coordinating pants set, as well as Addison Bay’s signature crew neck and leggings—all in a coastal-inspired palette of green, orange, and navy. “It started with a love of their ‘Everyday Crewneck,‘ a sharply tailored pullover with gold zippers,” shares Atwood. “From there, I fell in love with the rest of the line pretty much immediately. Our collection is perfect for the woman on the go, whether she is jumping on an airplane or running around the playground.” Shoppers can find the polished essentials on the brand’s website. [;

Local soap purveyor, Old Whaling Co., which celebrated its 10th anniversary last year, has introduced a fragrance-free collection of its handmade soaps, bath bombs, and body butters cleverly named ”Knot Scented.” The line is designed for people with sensitive skin or those who prefer products without fragrance or color.
