Another great week filled with inspiration from some women I truly admire. 1st Dibs shared an interview with makeup mogul Bobbi Brown, someone whose approach to beauty I’ve always appreciated. When describing her brand philosophy she said: “I want women to look and feel like themselves–only prettier and more confident.” Love that.
I did a little cheer for Anne Foster and Suysel dePedro Cunningham, the design duo behind one of my favorite interior design firms, Tilton Fenwick, for an awesome feature in The New York Times. I’ve really enjoyed following their successes over the years.
Apparently I’ve been living under a rock because I just discovered Decade Diary, the blog of Brooklyn based illustrator, Bernadette Pascua. It’s amazing. Go get lost for a few hours if you aren’t already following.
Caitlin Flemming, the author of one of one of my daily reads, Sacramento Street, launched a beautiful new website for her interior design business, Caitlin Flemming Design. Her sophisticated crisp clean interiors always make me reconsider the riot of color going on in my own home.
What inspired you this week?

It’s the first day of November and the weather seems to have turned to winter overnight. The grey sky and chilly temperature have me craving inky blues, greys, and a little bit of sparkle.
These Tory Buch Eddie flats tick all those boxes quite nicely, don’t you think? For more budget friendly accessories I have my eye on this snakeskin clutch and Bauble Bar necklace. I also wouldn’t mind adding Bobbi Brown’s black oyster palette to my make up bag. Maybe I should master a smokey eye that doesn’t resemble a black eye first…
Shades of blue and grey also pair nicely in the home. I’m obsessed with the idea of this flora and fauna fabric paired with a ticking stripe. Throw in Lief Shop’s amazing (and seasonally appropriate) vase and you’ve got one chic room!

Tortoise shell is one of those timeless patterns that looks chic in just about any form. Use it as a neutral in both fashion and interiors to instantly up your chic quotient.
P.S I received this Bobbi Brown palette (which unfortunately seems to be sold out) for Christmas and the colors are as gorgeous as the packaging. Highly recommend it if you can get your hands on one!
