Admiring: Aleishall Girard Maxon, of Studio Deseo. I blogged her work a while back, and mentioned that I grew up with she and her brother. They are one crazy talented family. Her brother Kori is an amazing artist, and their grandfather is Alexander Girard, so… yeah. I love this image from her new site, and I can’t wait until the online store is live… going to need one of those tassel necklaces for Spring.
Reading: This blog, Curate the Day, brought to my attention by my blogland bestie, Nadya. I can’t stop scrolling through it: moody photos, perfect styling, evocative writing. And, right away I come across a post about Bon Appetit, and one about Clare Vivier. Yep. New fave. And because I must always have a current CV obsession, we will now fixate upon the black clutch, with monogram and tassel. Via Joslyn, mais oui.
Feeling: These words. When I first read this, I wanted to reach through the screen and hug it. After a week like this, where I ended up in the ER with a double ear infection and pink eye (sexy), and just generally dealt with one stressful thing after another, I really needed this reminder. I refuse to let them go, these things that I’ve found, and I will fight for them til the end. Everything else is just background noise.
