Travel Photography Inspiration from The Slow Traveler

Don’t ask me what it is, but my body is not an adept traveler. After six days at home since returning from India, I’m a wreck. I wake constantly in the night due to jet lag, I’m seemingly incapable of focusing on anything but the simplest of work tasks, I’ve caught a spring cold that has […]

Handmade Minimalist Handbags by MATINE

I’ve been avidly scouring the March fashion mags for the scoop on all the season’s must-haves, and one trend I’m encountering again and again is architectural accessories.

Two Girls, One Kit: The Wide Leg Denim Jumpsuit from Winsome

I was at a fancy work party recently and noticed something veeeery interesting: The balance in eveningwear had shifted from stylish gals in dresses to stylish gals in jumpsuits. Ladies in the know were attired in one-piecers of all ilks, from slinky and silky and shapeless to form-fitting and fab. Of course the coverall isn’t limited to […]

Reflections on My Trip to India

We’ve been back stateside for just over two days and I’m still shaking off my trip to India. There’s the epically long flight to recover from, and the 13-hour time difference, plus the bout of traveler’s tummy that has me down three pounds and counting. But bigger than those things is the dust storm kicked up by […]

Two Girls, One Kit: The Striped Wrap Dress by Tribe Alive

Can I just say that I feel like the most delinquent blogger ever? Keeping up with posting while here in India has turned out to be much more difficult than I expected—not because of a lack of Internet connectivity, but rather because we’re so non-stop from a.m. to p.m. that I hit the pillow exhausted each night! It’s […]

You know how some people just seem to be born with an impeccable sense of style? How it oozes from every pore and trails behind them like a subtle yet unforgettable perfume?

Two Girls, One Kit: The Embroidered Spring Sweater by J. Crew

I’m writing this post from India! We survived over forty-eight hours of travel to arrive at our home base for the next five days, the city of Bikaner which is a major center of wool and rug-making in this country. I’m a little overwhelmed by all the sites, flavors, and information bombarding me—not to mention the jet […]

Putting the Light in Light Lab with Skylight Shades from Blinds.com

One thing we’re very lucky to have at Light Lab is, well, light. Tons of natural light, that is, great for photo shoots and creating a lively and welcoming mood for events. But even the most abundant light needs to be harnessed and directed to be useful—something we’ve been struggling to do since acquiring the space […]
