Bon Weekend: 4 August 2018

In addition to more flat lay outfits and color compilation posts, I’ve also had a request to bring back more bon weekend compilation posts. These are posts that incorporate disparate recommendations and events that don’t warrant a full blog post. I’m not sure I’ll do them every week but instead when I have a few different things to highlight.

First up is the recently launched collaboration between iconic British wallpaper and textile house GP & J Baker and Swedish retail giant H&M featuring archival prints in fashionable designs. The GP & J Baker x H&M Collection can be found in store and online now and includes cute dresses, blouses, pants, blazers, and a jumpsuit.

This is Alana Moskowitz, Director of Public Relations and Communications, for Kravet, Lee Jofa, and Brunschwig & Fils, wearing a GP and J Baker x H&M Dress in the Lee Jofa showroom in New York. I bought this dress since it looked so good on Alana and one of the scarves that has already sold out. The dress also comes in light green but is unlined so keep in mind that might need a slip.

I was at Lee Jofa to celebrate the installation of my friend Philip Mitchell’s Kips Bay Decorator Show House room into their showroom exhibition space. The pillows from the room are up for charity auction to benefit the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club too.

British fashion designer Emilia Wickstead has partnered with Moda Operandi on a new tabletop collection. It’s filled with colorful glassware and table linens in the same fabrics as some of her dresses. It’s only available for pre-order now which is a shame since it’s all perfect for summer entertaining.

Don’t forget the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ends on Sunday, August 5th. After that date, you’ll have to pay full price for your fall fashions, beauty products, and home decor.

It’s the rainy season in New York, which makes it the perfect time to binge watch Killing Eve. Although, I’m excited for the reboots of Murphy Brown and The Facts of Life, I often wonder if no one in Hollywood has any original ideas. It’s no wonder that Killing Eve was made in the UK. You can watch the spy drama on BBC America where it’s available on demand or online. Sandra Oh is getting all the buzz but the real star of the series is actress Jodie Comer at Villanelle who steals the show. There are posts online dedicated to her character’s style and Paris apartment and rightly so. Give yourself time to binge because you will be hooked. I can’t wait until season 2.

I’m still slowly making my way through the Bunny Mellon book but I can’t wait to pick up South Toward Home: Adventures and Misadventures in My Native Land from Julia Reed that was released earlier this week. Her writing is always fun to read and I think I need to plan a trip to New Orleans later this year in homage. 

Bon week-end !
