Greetings from High Point, North Carolina! I’m here at the furniture market, sourcing new finds for our design projects for the next few days. Be sure to follow along on Instagram to see all of my favorite finds! Which reminds me of a little piece of housekeeping– several months ago, I changed my Instagram handle from @ladolcevitablog to @palomacontrerasdesign, so please be sure to follow me there as people keep following the old account everyday. Anyhow, I will keep this short and sweet because it’s Friday and I have a huge market to go shop! Have a wonderful weekend!
Design: There are several new collections debuting at High Point this weekend. One that I am highly looking forward to seeing is the brand new collection by the incredibly talented David Kleinberg for Henredon. I have admired his work for many years and am really looking forward to see what he’s created.
Style: Have you seen the beautiful photos by Annie Leibovitz of the inspiring Amal Clooney in the latest issue of Vogue? I especially love this gorgeous image of her in a chic, polka dot gown by Johanna Ortiz. Amal has it all– beauty, brains, compassion, precious twins, and George Clooney!
Read: My friend, Phoebe Howard has a wonderful collection here at High Point and she also has a brand new book out called Coastal Blues. It is filled with the tailored and inviting sensibility that has become her signature. You can order your copy here.
Watch: A couple of weeks ago while driving to Round Top, Fabian and I heard a DJ on Sirius XM mention an HBO documentary called The Defiant Ones in reference to the song, “Stop Dragging my Heart Around” by Tom Petty and Stevie Nicks. Intrigued, we found the documentary OnDemand and binge-watched all four episodes last weekend. Fabian and I love all kinds of music and were blown away by the people the main subject of the documentary, producer Jimmy Iovine has worked with over the course of his career– everyone from Bruce Springsteen and Patti Smith to Petty and Nicks, U2, Trent Reznor, and Dr. Dre. I always love watching or listening to people who have an innate gift for what they do and incomparable drive to be the best in their field. You can watch the trailer here.
Shop: Tomorrow is the last day to save 20% off of everything at Shopbop and 25% off purchases $500 and over! You can find all of my top picks in this post. A few of my favorites include this classic striped tee, this super chic bag, and this super flattering dress.
