It’s already freakin’ freezing here in Pennsylvania! This weekend’s plans will include swapping out lightweight closet pieces for layers and sweaters and seeing what else I may need to pick up to fill in the holes. I’ve already grabbed a mid-length sherpa jacket with a low pile, a few sweaters, and some new socks – what’s on your shopping list?

Because it’s only two weeks from yesterday if you live in the States and will be celebrating. Thanksgiving legitimately snuck up on me this year, which is unfortunate since it’s the holiday I host. I have no clue what I’ll be wearing either – most likely something from my closet that I add to. Maybe that’s your plan as well? A roomy shirt or sweater so you don’t have to suck it in, or a sweet dress that will transition well to all of those holiday parties next month, or just adding a great piece of jewelry to an outfit you already own to mix things up. All fine plans of action.

Marta Lugo Jewel‘s brooches are a tribute to safety pins, a daily object turned into jewel. Their title – FIBULOSO – is the combination of two words fibula and fabuloso. In archeology the word fibula refers to the metal pieces used in antiquity to join and hold clothes, while fabuloso is the Spanish word for fabulous. Each brooch is clear coated to prevent tarnishing and preserve its innate fabulousness for years to come.

This past spring a lot of my time was spent designing for a project my friend Jaime and I had been discussing for a long time, and now it has a name – Milk Factory. Design Milk’s first collection of merchandise includes t-shirts, stickers, a tote bag (my favorite), and an enamel pin. We did a test run pop-up at the Milk Stand at ICFF in May before the shop opened and it went really well. All of the products are proudly printed by Commonwealth Press right here in Pittsburgh, PA and Milk Factory is happy to ship internationally. The plan is to add more items as we come up with additional cheeky things we’d want to buy for ourselves!
