thanks to Stephanie of fete for the lovely feature on RTL!

From the post, “I’m so head over heels for these pieces… I love the playfulness of the patterns and the boldness of the colors, but I enjoy the strong lines, the dashing cuts, the overall robustness of each piece. It’s the perfect pairing of creativity and tradition!”

Melissa Frost illustrated my new favorite quote from Shona Rhime’s commencement speech!! Check out the rest of her amazing work: http://melissafrostdesign.com/

“Maybe you know exactly what it is you dream of being, or maybe you’re paralyzed because you have no idea what your passion is. The truth is, it doesn’t matter. You don’t have to know. You just have to keep moving forward. You just have to keep doing something, seizing the next opportunity, staying open to trying something new. It doesn’t have to fit your vision of the perfect job or the perfect life. Perfect is boring and dreams are not real. Just do.”
