Taking the Easter Basket To The Next Level

I have been following The Manca studio for a while now. I first saw one of their basket bags on my friend Julie. I was obsessed. It was absolutely beautiful. She had a perfectly woven Nantucket-style basket with a chic Hermes scarf liner. I then saw that the bag can be custom-made in many designs. I recently partnered with the founder Christina to share her story and her bags with you.

After washing ashore on Nantucket Island, Christina found herself in need of a hobby. Combining a passion for Nantucket with a love of all things crafty, Lightship Basket weaving was the perfect fit. The Nantucket Weaving Studio offers a wide variety of baskets both in-stock and made-to-order. 

The Christina Rose Collection is a carefully curated compilation of lightship basket purses, furniture, and lighting with a distinctly modern vibe – designed by Christina herself. 

​Christina Rose Manca lives on Nantucket. You can find her weaving some joy into her day in her studio, on the beach, or in town all year long. After all, life isn’t just about baskets.

I have been carrying my Minkie M Bag nonstop since Christina made it for me.

Reinstein Ross for Valentine’s Day

I am so excited to share the Reinstein Ross curated Valentine’s Day collection. I have been working with this brand for a short time and have fell in love with all of their pieces. I have a gorgeous south sea pendant that I wear everyday. This signature design features a brilliant white south sea pearl. Tania is named for its distinctive cluster of three granules – it’s an element that is part of the Reinstein Ross design vocabulary and often incorporated to add some delicate dimension.  I have not taken it off since the day I put it on. You can see this beatuiful look in the image below. Whats even more wonderful was that this pearl was handmade in the Reinstein Ross New York City design atelier & workshop. Read more about the living workshop HERE.

Reinstein Ross does an incredible job of stacking and layering. I have included a video that I filmed with Sarah Blair, the CEO and Jo Shin, Head of Creative for the company. Take a few minutes to listen to their suggestions about creating the perfect layer!
