West Coast Craft Summer 2017

Well hello there! I didn’t mean to take such a long break. But *SIGH* the world news got depressing and overwhelming. Then some behind the scenes bits from my website broke. Now I’m back up and running and feeling more motivated to post 🙂

I’ve shared my love for the West Coast Craft fair many times before! (see tagged posts HERE)

I absolutely love going to this show because it features artisans and makers that are based out of the West Coast (as the name explains) and it just so happens that MANY of them also happen to be out of the Bay Area/San Francisco! So as a new one quickly approaches the week of November 18th, I thought I would reminisce over some photos I took of WWC over the Summer break! Seeing the artisans is quite inspiring for me to even create the things I have in my own mind. From fashion, to ceramics, jewelry, art, candles, etc. this craft fair is just so beautiful!

From the sidewalk

You guys, I’m astonishingly surprised and proud of myself in a way I may have never been before. I never imagined that my ideas about taking pictures of homes would bloom to what it is now. Not only have I had a blast taking photos of all these beautiful homes – getting outside to find them is another amazing challenge! Also, the fact that I get to have these made on Made in USA merchandise feels very good!

Here are just a few of the things you can get, I’m still working on more designs!

A quick hello

Will you hate me if I tell you this quick post has photos from a museum again?! It’s seriously addicting you guys!! It’s become my new favorite place to go and think…(besides the gym.) I have been taking my notebook and just sitting in a nook of the museum to write, not even observing the art. More so observing the people, which I love to do too! This post is a quick hello before I leave to LA for the holiday weekend. I have some more exciting outfits and photographs to share, but also a book giveaway!

This was my museum minimal outfit – with the luminous Richard Serra piece.

MoMa

So a lot of my outings lately have been to museums. Sorry (not sorry.) I’m now the proud member of three different museums in San Francisco and cannot urge you enough to do something similar near you! In the long run it becomes affordable if you visit often (like I do) and you typically always have a bonus ticket to invite a friend – and what good friends wouldn’t take you up on an offer to visit world class museums for free?!

So when I got the chance to visit the SF MOMA for the first time, I jumped at the opportunity to get a membership. Solely for the fact that it’s also too large to enjoy in one whole day. So now I get to come back as much as I want for a whole year! I feel lucky.

I’ve been trying to figure out where one can wear a bright yellow, wool, mini skirt…and if a museum isn’t perfect, I don’t know where else you’d wear the damn thing?! I still can’t believe I found it at the thrift store! It’s by Sonia Rykiel, who seems to have just passed away (RIP)
