Five Things, Vol. 1
During the week I stumble across so many wonderful things on the Internet and I’ve been thinking of a good way to share them all! I’ve decided to do a “link roundup,” like many others; let me know what you think, and if you’d like me to continue!
First, a self-promotion here: John Burton, the editor at Ivy Style, kindly reached out to me and asked if I’d be interested in being interviewed for the site! This was truly exciting for me as I’ve been a member of the Ivy Style Facebook group for what must be nearly a decade now and I’ve been a longtime reader of the site. If you’re interested, you can find the interview here.
I loved Muffy Aldrich’s post, “The Thing Before Preppy;” as always, her historical photographs offer a fascinating glimpse of everyday life, instead of the overly stylized images that are often seen (not that I don’t love those as well! But it’s so intriguing to me as a former anthropologist to see the everyday instead of just the extraordinary.)
While I’m planning (or trying, at least!) not to shop in January, I’m also attempting not to shop at the end of this month, either. However, the Molly Moorkamp end of the year sale is very tempting. I’ve had my eye on her shift dresses for a long time, and the Quincy dress is honestly a dream for a summer party!
I agree with Habitually Chic that we all need a palate cleanser after the holidays; I love her recent post on the beautiful apartment designed by Veere Grenney.
Interiors posts are among my favorites to read–not surprising with a mother, grandmother, and an aunt who were in the design field–and I will admit that I was completely invested in Jackie Clair’s “great paint debate!” Farrow & Ball produces some of the loveliest colors (and I adore their names); you can read how she narrowed down the shade for her new apartment in her recent blog post here.
