joyce lee + buddy editions

I can't say enough wonderful things about my friend Katie's art business, Buddy Editions. A beautiful, curated art site was a longtime dream of hers that she worked and worked and worked to make it a reality -- I so admire that. Amid the myriad of wonderful artists featured on the site (there are tons), the work of photographer Joyce Lee is one of my favorites. It brings to mind the iconic Kate Spade advertisements of the early 2000s: comfortable yet unbelievably stylish scenes from daily life. If you enjoy these photos as much as I do, you won't want to miss Ms. Lee's instagram account. And if you're smart, you'll follow Buddy Editions here, here and here so you won't miss out on new art additions. I'm telling you, they're fabulous.


chez caroline

I spent yesterday afternoon at my friend Caroline’s adorable bungalow in Silver Lake. While sipping tea + flipping through the pages of Domino Quick Fixes (which was discovered at Whole Foods, of all places), we became inspired to do a photo shoot of our own! Caroline is a talented actress with amazing style, as clearly demonstrated in the above photos. Her Los Angeles bungalow is beyond darling, don’t you think? She and I are kindred spirits indeed :)

the carousel bangle watch

Upon viewing this instagram photo by Ms. Katie Evans, I became completely enamored by Kate Spade’s new line of wristwear. I’ve always found bangle watches to be very chic (my grandmother used to wear a gold one on special occasions), and I love brightly-colored enamel bracelets. The hybrid of these two elements is a wonderful, wonderful thing. Nordstrom has the entire line available for viewing here. Which watch do you fancy? My favorites are the above :)

kate spade on gifts

I love reading gift guides. Nothing makes me want to shop more! Especially when they’re written by someone like Kate Spade. The above photos are from two different – and very old, I might add – pieces that I re-discovered in my magazine collection last night. The cool thing is that her suggestions are just as fresh now as they were then! Scans one and two are from a 2004 InStyle feature. The third scan is from an unknown source (but I love it all the same). Oh, how I wish Kate Spade had a GOOP-esque newsletter so we could see what she's giving this year. I have a hunch that she would have some very good ideas :)
