My best friend Michelle sent me a link to David Downton‘s site a few weeks ago. I had no idea he was the artist behind some of the most iconic illustrations and advertisements in the fashion industry! Amazing . . .
Happy Thanksgiving, y’all! xx

If your a fashion enthusiast and a literature or history buff (gasp!), I hope you’re already familiar with Textbook, where our friend and fellow blogger John Januzzi imagines how fictional heroines, cultural icons, and historical figures might be styled for this day and age. Characters like Jay Gatsby, Veruca Salt, Joan of Arc, and Tinkerbell are playfully dissected and outfitted with individualized runway pieces. The collages are meticulously assembled and the captions are witty. All in all, it’s honestly genius. He even takes requests! So dear John, what would Jo March wear?

I am so in love with everything Portland designer Jessica Helgerson has done with this home. I want it all: the fishtail palm in the living room (best house plant ever), the suzani detail on the bottom of the curtains (DIY), the Moroccan rug, the coffee table, and the barn sink in the kitchen. I already have the bulldog that’s in the kitchen, so I must be on the right track to making this dream home my reality.
