You know the moment when you find a new blog, author or designer who you simply can’t get enough of? When you happen upon someone’s work and find yourself looking at every single thing they’ve ever made, wrote or said? You feel excited and inspired and a little bit like you’ve met a new friend. Well, this week’s newsletter is dedicated to that very particular feeling. We're constantly discovering women who have great taste, unique style and engaging new ideas and today, we thought it'd be fun to share a few of them with you!
Maria Alexandra Vettese and Stephanie Congdon Barnes of 3191 Miles Apart
Maria is based in Portland, Maine and Stephanie lives in Portland, Oregon. After meeting each other online, they started a blog posting diptychs -- one photo from each of their morning. That project turned into a beautiful coffee table book called, A Year of Mornings: 3191 Miles Apart. Now, they’re working on a new project together. Another book, which will include photographs, stories, recipes and crafts in a month by month format that covers their lives and inspirations during January–December, 2015.
Jen Steele of Girls I Know
Not only is Jen the Senior Editor at one of our favorite blogs, Into The Gloss,she’s also the founder of the very cool community/blog/’zine, Girls I Know. When we read Jen’s mission behind Girls I Know, we knew she was a lady after our own heart: “to share the influence of highly dynamic and successful women with a generation of girls interested in learning about who they are or who they will become.”
And lastly, Caitlin Mociun of Mociun and Mociun White
Caitlin opened Mociun, on the corner of Wythe and North 4th, in 2011. Set amidst the busy, industrial streets of Williamsburg, this store is a haven of fresh white walls, handcrafted ceramics, beautiful rugs and organic beauty products. Caitlin’s simple, elegant jewelry line, Mociun, is also sold in store and her ethically sourced, locally made pieces continue to enchant us. In 2015, she opened Mociun White, a dreamy bridal salon that provides dresses, veils, shoes, and home goods for weddings and registries. She also partnered with MCMC to make a special edition perfume, MCMC X MOCIUN, (which is Christina's signature scent!).
And please feel free to share back. We're always looking to learn about more wonderful women!
Here's to a wonderful week!
