A few pretty things I bookmarked over the holidays to share with you! I’m loving the warm, clean palette here — must be something about the new year.
M. Gemi’s Twice Yearly Sale
Yes, you read that right. This is the second sale I’ve seen from M. Gemi and the sale prices have been pretty good, considering the quality of the shoes. It only runs until early Thursday morning though, and sizes are going fast. Even though these sandals are from last summer, I’d be happy to rock them this year (and at that price — $95!).
Have you ever heard of Shore Projects? They’re a UK-based watch brand with simple, timeless pieces and a vintage-inspired look. All their watches have a mix-and-match thing going — so, choose your favorite face and bezel combo, then your desired strap. I liked the look of the Portland, with its gold bezel and white/black dial.
The Floating Forest
Originally, I meant to include this in my Gift Guide, but sort of ran out of room for it. This “Floating Forest” is one of the coolest, most random items ever though. This disk hovers above a glass of water, and when you place a seed near the small opening, it supposedly germinates. As the designer said, “I became obsessed with the simple idea of suspending a seed on the surface of water; submerged, just to the right level for it to germinate. All with the possibility of being able to support itself in the absence of soil, that would allow it to stand upright; exposed, all in clear view.” Neat, huh?
