Honestly, Lauren and I are obsessed with almost everything Moroccan. Take for instance, these stunning Moroccan wedding blankets which Lauren first saw years ago at the Parker Palm Springs. The blankets are hand woven often by a female family member weeks before a wedding ceremony for the Moroccan bride, infusing the blanket with blessings of good fortune and fertility. Upon completion of this hand loomed treasure, the nuptials are performed and the bride is draped in her blanket as she travels to her husband’s home.
Welcome to our new blog–a joint project by my dear friend Lauren and me! Lauren (an LA based stylist) and I (a San Francisco based designer) have always shared a mutual respect for one another’s style, an obsession for all things unique & sometimes strange, and an appreciation for the excitement exchanged when a new fashion discovery is made by the other (hence the title of our blog–a term which is used over and over again whenever we unveil our new treasures and finds). It only made sense for us to join forces to create a daily blog, where we hope to share with you (and each other) what excites us, inspires us and makes us gasp: “HONESTLY….?!?!” Enjoy!
