Have a wonderful weekend!! I’ve caught some kind of awful flu and it sounds like a car driving on a gravel road when I breathe. I had so many fun plans for the weekend, but they have quickly devolved to tea and juice chugging while sleeping or watching Game of Thrones. I hope you all evade this beast — it really does a number on you. Have fun! xo Jen

Shop Visit: Lowell

Equal parts museum, gallery, and shop, Lowell is one of my favorite spots in town. Located just off the south end of North Mississippi and up the street from Beam & Anchor, Lowell’s small, colorful exterior belies the large and open interior where owners Maya and Dino have put together a wholly fun and reverent collection of objects. The shop showcases items from many world cultures, a special Southwest bent and goods from local artists. You’ll find ceramics, paper goods, vintage clothing, jewelry, rugs, and wood carvings in stock, displayed lovingly and with true curatorial flair.

I was lucky enough to visit Lowell on a surprisingly sunny winter day, which filled the space with warm, golden light. A steady stream of shoppers came and went, all on a first name basis with Maya and Dino, and it was lovely to be able to overhear their conversations about art and travel as I took in the beauty of the shop. Truthfully, I spent a little more time on my visit than usual as each corner pulled me in over and over, highlighting a gem I missed on my first look or just enticing me to take a closer look at something I had only glanced at before.

My shop favorites include Lowell’s custom candles that are handmade in very small batches (recent shop additions include candles poured into exclusive ceramic vessels made by local potter, Liam Drain), concrete fruit planters by New York’s Chen & Kai, vintage turquoise rings, cassette tape releases from Eggy Records, and illustrated calendars from Clay & Wiley Hickson. Maya and Dino just returned from the Southwest and have lots of new items from the trip hitting the shop now.

Tomorrow Is Forever

I’m crazy about this sweet vintage shop Tomorrow Is Forever. There are so many vintage shops online and most of them don’t spend a lot of time getting the era right for the garments they’re selling or put much work into styling and consistent photography, so I love it when they do! You might recognize the shop owner here, Gaby Cetrulo, from some wonderful lookbooks I’ve featured here over the years. It’s fun to find out that she has such a lovely shop and is an artist! My faves are the Eyelet Day Dress, Pink Mini Dress, High-Waisted Shorts and that amazing Lime Green Romper (the buttons!!). More HERE

Hello! Here we are at Friday and, hopefully, a long holiday weekend for those of you here in the US. I’m so excited for this weekend. It will be full of brunches, romance with pho, more unpacking and organizing (we have a lot of stuff!), catching up on Downton, wine, my friend Sarai is coming over to help me figure out our garden (ALL THE ROSES AND LILACS) and lots of other fun times. I hope you have a good weekend! ♥ xo Jen
