I’ve recently come across Yuketen, an outstanding American based luggage and footwear company. Designer Yuki Matsuda pays homage to the American crafts and traditions by treasure hunting for outstanding examples of footwear and luggage in remote locales spread out across the rolling Appalachians to the high Sierras. And thanks to him, there is yet another moccasin I need in my life.

The early bird caught the worm. The worm being this sold out gorgeous black lace floral print dress at Pixie Market and the early bird not being me. What hurts even more is that it was only $94. Thankfully, there are many other pretty dresses to pick from here. But I will still lament missing out on this treasure . . . don’t you hate it when that happens?
I am wild about these beautiful worldly goods from Plumo. I’ve got a thing for ottomans and poufs, so I’m definitely adding these Kelim Poufs to my wish list. I’m a big believer that you can never have enough poufs in your home. The more, the merrier!

In his ongoing project, Dispatchwork, artist Jan Vormann uses Legos to repair damaged walls. He started by patching up surfaces in Bocchigano, Italy and has since used the same technique on walls in urban cities like Tel Aviv, Berlin, New York City, Basel, St. Petersburg and more. Honestly…genius.
