the matching everything


Winter in the city, coats are everything. Most everyone you encounter will only see you in a coat, so if you’re wearing a fabulous one, you’re set. Done.

I am a coat person. I buy coats for every possible scenario: work days, weekends, evenings at the ballet, a day at the lodge (what?). Coats are the most satisfying purchase because I wear them many, many times a season, and I wear them for years. I’ve had a fuchsia princess coat since 2007, and I’m just now considering its retirement.

Perhaps I’ll trade in the fuchsia for this amazing plaid? I think yes.

what’s going on

new things

Another launch is bearing down, but there are new things in the house, so I want to share!

I got this huge tote bag for lugging my work laptop and other bits. Not exactly cutting edge, but it’s made in Maine, and I couldn’t quite bring myself to spend 4x the price of this one for something a little cuter.

I finally painted my dining chairs after a year of thinking about it. I am obsessed with the color: BM Jade Garden. I’m trying to scheme up other places to use it!

These malachite sheets. Die.

I ordered some Liberty fabric for shams–I was expecting them to be a little more purply but whatever, I will go with bright pink!
