Up until a year ago, we lived in a world of $2 IKEA plates. Perfectly serviceable and minimalist, but upgrading to these Heath plates has made a made a huge difference in our daily meals. The plates hold sauce better, and the tactile feel of ceramic just gives me joy.
Silver AF Vandevorst shoes
I’ve had these shoes for 10 years, and they are still one of my favorites. I’ve worn them out dancing into the wee hours of the night, then walked a mile home afterwards without completely murdering my feet. I’ve collected quite a few more pairs since my first, but these are still my favorite. And silver is a neutral, right? Silver goes with everything.
It all started with one RMS lip2cheek. Now I’ve got more than I can possibly use, and I STILL want more. RMS lip2cheek in Modest and Kevyn Aucoin Tresabella are my current favorites.
Before it was a line in Only Lovers Left Alive, my husband and I used to joke that he was Motown; I, Stax. Between our combined record collection, we’ve got most genres of Soul and Funk covered. Every time we travel, we come home with records. We always manage to find the record store in whatever town we are in, without actually meaning to. I don’t know how it happens, but I’ve learned to leave room in my suitcase (and bookshelf).
Frieling Stainless Steel French Press
I’ve broken too many glass French Presses to count. This one is going on 6 years, and I’ve never once regretting spending the extra money on it. The double walled stainless steel keeps coffee warmer than my old glass ones, and it can stand up to my klutziness.
I don’t own very many pairs of pants, and the ones I do have, I very rarely wear. Wool tights from Hansel from Basel are my favorite way to stay warm in colder weather. I find wool tights more comfortable and warmer than jeans, anyhow (no wind tunnel effect up the bottoms of your pants!).Buy Now$40
