Dwell December 2016

So in love with the latest issue of Dwell focused on prefab design. Since reading The Remodelista and seeing the use of ApplePly in the Remodelista Headquarters, I've been obsessed with plywood. I love the custom plywood cabinets in this 86 square foot studio, it creates a functional yet beautiful space.

Everything Old is New Again

I happened upon these fashion illustrations from the 1950's and 1960's on the NYPL Digital Archives. Thought it would be fun to see what trends we could find from the 2017 Golden Globes.

  • Emma Stone in Valentino
  • Felicity Jones in Gucci
  • Reese Witherspoon in a Custom Atelier Versace dress
  • Claire Foy in Erdem
  • Sarah Jessica Parker in a Vera Wang Collection dress
  • Mandy Moore in a Naeem Khan dress

Uniform: Jesse Kamm

Like many, I have been lured by the aura of Jesse Kamm. Living part of the year in Panama and the rest in California, she works hard and lives beautifully. 

“My uniform doesn’t only involve what I wear. It involves these philosophies I have about how to live a good life. For me, freedom is wealth. That’s my success: Being free to pick up and go away for the summer and be in a place where I can completely shut down. What if you just shook up the formula and thought of doing it in a different way, a smaller way? The dollar sign doesn’t have to be the end-all.” -Jesse Kamm [Hartman, E. (2015, September 1). Jesse Kamm’s Laid-Back Approach to Life — and Looks. The New York Times.]

With so much fast fashion these days, it can be nice to save up for a piece that makes you feel like a badass. (I'm looking at you Kimono Jumpsuit...)
