Kate Spade has collaborated with French style blogger and illustrator Garance Doré to create a line of clothes, handbags, and accessories with a Parisienne flair. Pictured are some of my favorite pieces from the collection.
While scouring the antique shops in Anacortes a few weeks ago I stumbled on this delightful Post Card. Sent by someone in Savannah to Miss Laura in St. Louis MO. The picture on the card captured my attention, but it's the message on the back that thrilled me to no end. "For fear that you have forgotten me, I want to remind you that I am still alive but on the banks of the great Atlantic Ocean. (signed) Guess Again". Don't you just love it?!
Come January you'll find me in Salt Lake City. Skiing, Snowshoeing, participating in some Sundance film viewing, and most importantly - attending Alt Summit! I managed to secure a ticket to the annual event yesterday. Rumor has it tickets sold out in a mere 30 minutes. Although my entire reason for going to SLC is Alt (the lectures, the parties, the fashion, the connections), while I'm there I plan to attempt to take advantage of everything the city has to offer.
"Alt is like that amazing few days when you thought you would be reorganizing closets but, instead, your friend surprised you and whisked you away. You sat by the cozy fire, drank warm drinks, ate good food and engaged in the most stimulating conversations. Remember? It’s like that for your blog.
If you're obsessed with lifestyle, food and fashion blogs, fantastic images, smart ideas and great design inside and outside — all wrapped up with a social media bow — Altitude Design Summit is the place to be. Because we feed those obsessions.
We've created a place where design and lifestyle bloggers in all their forms— foodies, photographers, travelers, fashionistas, interior designers, product placers, adventurers — come together, share ideas and connect with marketers. There will be discussions on how to grow your site, how to fund your site, how to keep your site above the fray. You'll find panels on blogging etiquette and blogging ethics. People will share good advice for creative entrepreneurs. Friends will be made. Contact books will be filled. "
The Grand America Hotel will be home for nearly a week.
"The five-diamond Grand America Hotel is the perfect place to host a weekend of luxury, pampering and mind-blowing design inspiration. Hand-cut chandeliers, English wool carpets, and boutique-style meeting rooms create an experience that is second to none. The luxurious rooms and suites make this the ultimate lodging destination in Salt Lake City."
