The Grey's Dear Whoever,


Letter to the universe and by universe I mean anyone willing to support a starving artist: I'm not generally this nerdy but all the Grey's Anatomy watching and common phrase redundancies ("007" "Seriously.") is starting to influence the need to be, among other things, you know, hardcore, like Cristina Yang. Oooh or Calli Torres. Wait, Miranda Bailey. Wow, I think I just reached the point when everything needs a cursory Mc in front of it. Besides, does anyone really read these posts? Digress. 

 Below I've diligently inventoried a few current favorites (ahem), so I'll skip the unabashed begging and superfluous commentary and just make a point. Can you, I mean, would you mind bringing me these gorgeous things on my eternal wish list like before I die. I'm an artist for Pete's sake... do you know how expensive art supplies are these days (falls out of chair)? I mean, seriously.Seriously. Do you know how difficult it is to even sell art? Bottom-line, I want cute things too, okay. 

Do you think I should I write a letter to Proenza Schouler? My congressman? Barney's? At this point, I'm totally not opposed to contacting the president if you think it'd help, and by president I mean Net-a-porter. obviously. Never actually heard back from Jeffrey Campbell. I wonder if Bergdorf's is hiring.

Brooklyn cinder block

I want to tell you about Max Steiner, one of my favorite new designers whose visionary buoyancy sheds new light on his innate talent to see outside the box. When I was first contacted by Max, about a week ago, I did what anyone would do. I browsed his website. And as an artist, was instantly drawn to the various elements of his inspiring collections. Conceptualizing the simplicity of paper folding, Max tells me, "Folding paper since I was five years old has led to my ORIGAMI collection, one of my most popular. Working in an industrial neighborhood in Brooklyn has led to the development of the CINDER BLOCK collection." And the results are flawlessly executed. Not only does he incorporate an organic wearability through his architectural jewelry, but the fact that he does so with such an influential voice of his everyday surroundings, adds an extraordinary amount of intimacy that's hard to come by. Thank you, Max for my rad new cinder block necklace. I sorta refuse to tak…

DIY: Malian Mud Cloth Bench

Last year, hidden away in a dusty corner of one of my favorite antique stores, I discovered this decorative wooden bench. The $20 price tag and carved details were too good to ignore and I quickly scooped it up. Even with its (original) dingy blue legs and worn crushed velvet body, I hoped that one day I could restore its soulless existence into something more appealing. After a little black paint and the beautiful design of this hand-woven Malian mud cloth, it looks better than ever!

The Leather Satchel

When Gail from The Leather Satchel Company contacted me with the amazing opportunity to choose a satchel of my choice to review, keep, and love forever I practically fell out of the chair. I'd been lusting after one of these gorgeous bags for the longest time, because while it may sound a bit unconventional, I thought it perfect for gallivanting about the sculpture park with my trusty writing supplies  swinging idly at my side. So like a springboard into the sea of opportunity, I leapt at the idea of writing about how much I adore the vintage aesthetic and sinuously detailed structure that creates an effortlessly downtown sophistication.
A family company since the late 1960s, The Leather Satchel Company strives for high-quality standards that are evident down to the stitch by their meticulously crafted leathers. What's even more amazing about these "quintessentially British" satchels is the assortment of available colors (dying over neon pink) and the 5-year artisan …
