Miranda Bennett Fourth Edition

No question that Austin-based designer, Miranda Bennett, already nailed the perfect all-weather all the time every day dress with her appropriately-titled "Everyday Dress" but it's her newest collection that I can't wait to get my hands on (especially the cropped denim version of her Everyday dress <3). There's been an influx of new lines putting out breezy, loose clothing which I'm usually all for, but it's gotten a bit extreme - it's nearly impossible to find pieces that aren't just...bags. But Bennett really got it right. She makes sure the proportions balance out her drapes and oversized shapes, and isn't afraid of a  low-cut neckline. You can browse her lookbook and shop at http://www.mirandabennettstudio.com/.

Eileen Gray Rugs

I posted some of these the other day on Women Artists but I keep going back to them along with some interior shots of Eileen Gray's villa. Thought I'd share -

gratuitous type

Over the weekend, I went to the New York Art Book Fair, which was overwhelming but great.  It was exciting to have Women Artists be part of the event at the Ed Varie table.  Side note: if you want to pick up a copy, you can now find it on sale at some of our favorite shops:  Myth & Symbol in Houston, Olive in Austin, and (soon) Editions Kavi Gupta in Chicago.

As for highlights that I have no personal investment in, one of my favorite publications was Gratuitous Type. Beautifully designed and printed.








And now! I think I'm going to start closing out my blog posts with links to other things you should check out on the internet since I'm always coming across things worth sharing and forgetting that I have multiple platforms to do just that.  A couple of them are old by internet standards, but I don't care.  Lots of Buzzfeed this time around for whatever reason, but again, I don't caaaaaaaaaare.
