Tuesday Catching Up…


Good Morning, friends. I hope you had a good weekend and start to your week. I know it’s tough right now to keep our heads up — I’m feeling it big time. It’s hard to get my posts about design and beauty and other musings rolling when all I can think about is gun control, the people of Puerto Rico (Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz is an American hero), racism, and the blatant greed and abuses of power going on in our government.

I love what I do, but I’m here with you feeling all the anger and sadness. I just wanted to send out some love to everyone out there because writing about dresses can feel tone deaf. I do feel strongly about supporting small businesses, local events, and primarily women-owned businesses — especially in this climate of corporate greed being allowed to run rampant and given so many perks, publicity, and the financial ability to promote themselves across all the corporate social media platforms so many of us are tied to.

I’m going to be here doing what I do, talking about talented creatives and beautiful shops, celebrating design, celebrating women, and calling attention to the things that catch my eye. I just want you to know that it isn’t without the constant waves of consternation we’re all feeling right now — it can be emotionally paralyzing and it’s definitely infuriating to deal with so many nonsensical actions from people who are supposed to be leaders. Lots of love to you. xoxo Jen
