I’m so grateful for Fig & Fauna for showing us all that is pure and good in the world. Sisters in law Megan and Rose Martin document rural farm life through their blog, where they share their agrarian living & farm inspired cooking. You won’t be able to stop scrolling through each page, with one stunning beautiful recipe after another . . .
Whether you’re an avid art collecter or simply art impaired, there is no denying that art plays a key role in creating the look, feel, and atmosphere of any room. The problem, for some, is being intimidated by the abounding choices and the presumption of high price tags. And even though we consider ourselves lovers of art, we’re definitely no exception when it comes to being challenged by picking the “right piece.” Enter Art.com. A few weeks ago we were invited to Art.com’s 25 Summit, where we were able to see the launch of their new, easy-to-navigate online experience. With the ability to narrow down searches by period, color, artist and/or subject, as well as being able to choose from a selection of handcrafted custom frames, we dare you to not get sucked into the process of customizing you’re own wall-ready art. Accessible, affordable, and inspiring, we’re literally hung up on Art.com!
Free People‘s latest video catalog is all about the relation of opposites with light and dark – masculine and feminine. Karlie Kloss tells a moody, dark story while Aline Weber is more romantic and full of light. Whichever girl speaks to you the most, the transition into fall is all about layering sweater coats, plaid button downs, and light-weight jackets.
Teen rebellion in the sixties was the inspiration behind Dean and Dan Caten’s amazing fall campaign for DSquared. Shot at London’s Ragged School Museum, a good looking group of unruly students are defying all the rules while sporting brushed mohair sweaters, cropped pants, leather gloves, sparkly heels, and wicked cat eye glasses. Disorderly conduct at it’s best!
There’s something genuinely nostalgic and wonderfully simple about Suzanne Rae’s spring collection. Her lookbook video has me daydreaming of relaxing lakeside in the adorable bandeau bikini this summer . . .
Earlier this year, while in New York, Erica and I had the pleasure of running into the mastermind behind these unique and eccentric handbags. Inés Figaredo, a former lawyer turned designer, aims to explore bags as an art form. And man, is she on point! Each piece is conceptualized using nature and the imagination as inspiration and they are then handmade in Spain with the finest leather and materials such as 18k gold plated fittings. Check out the video below and follow along as Inés’ Big Girl Face Bag is being made.
