If you could only wear two designers for the rest of your life, who would they be?

I’ll start.

For daytime it would be Margaret Howell. I do not own one piece by MH but so much of what I buy secondhand is inspired by her work. Watch this lovely video to learn more about her.


For evening it would be Dries Van Noten. I love his sense of color and luxury. I love how he mixes classics and brilliant new fantasies together. I own one DVN piece — a marigold linen and silk midi wrap skirt that I got secondhand from The Real Real. I have too many favorite seasons to pick just one. This video offers a nice overview.


Who would you wear?

Random Link Pack – 8-23-18

We are hoping we can screen this Vivienne Westwood documentary next Spring before the 10th Annual Clothing Swap!!! Stay tuned and fingers crossed.

My bestie cousin, Sarah, introduced me to Yacht Rock. It’s lots of Steely Dan, George Benson, and Doobie Brothers type stuff and I’m totally obsessed.

Beware of this Instagram account. Once you see it you will want to get bangs. I did.

I’m curious about Port City. I want to buy this hat for my son for X-mas.

Do you follow Erin Little on Instagram? She was asked to photograph the home of a woman who was in her 90s. The woman passed away and her family wanted photos of the house before it was emptied and sold. Such a beautiful and precious place.

My friend posted this on Facebook — ” I just want an organic cotton tampon with a cardboard applicator wrapped in paper – I just don’t understand why this is so difficult to find! After 48 comments she got the answer !!!

Star Island is a great place to go for the day. My sister and I, and my two boys are going tomorrow. We are packing a lunch and planning to go for a swim.

TeePearls are necklaces made from upcycled t-shirts. Handmade in Somerville, MA. Cute.

Sometimes I daydream about moving to Rockland, Maine. I dream of working at the art museum or the library. I could live here.

Next month we have our first meeting to start planning the next Project Upcycle which will take place in March 2019. Designers, start working on your portfolios!
