HARSH REALITY

flower car

i hope you all have a nice valentine’s day weekend! let me tell you a little story…

i was trying to carry too much stuff out of the office yesterday and dropped my phone wrong on the pavement. shattered. neon lines on the screen only. ugh. the next 24 hours have been very eye opening and a little bit scary. i got in my car to leave work…i couldn’t listen to my spotify playlists in traffic. that was fine, radio will do. then i couldn’t tell my friend i was on my way over to her house or ask if she needed me to pick anything up. i couldn’t snapchat any of the funny moments with my friends that night or show someone the photo in my camera roll. that night my friend gave me a ride home (don’t drink and drive, ya know) and before bed i couldn’t post my nightly #sweetdreamsdlf posts or text anyone under the influence (probably for the best). the next morning, i woke up and felt panicked a little bit. what time IS it? i usually just look on my phone or wake up to an alarm. i asked my friend for a ride to my car using my computer because i couldn’t call an uber. this is starting to be crazy, right? i made an appointment for the apple store on jen’s phone and then realized i didn’t know how to get to that apple store without my iphone map. WHAT?! then i got an email that said i could announce an exciting collaboration this weekend on instagram. nope, no i can’t actually. not until i get my phone back.

HOW CAN WE BE THIIIIIIIS ADDICTED TO OUR PHONES? i felt really scared about it actually. so reliant on these little devices! it feels hard to function normally without it. i’m nervous for us, and especially the kids growing up during this time. i need to practice more self control, that’s for sure. have you ever come to this realization?!

anyway, gotta run! ps keep an eye out for my upcoming announcement on instagram! xx -bri

MAGIC 8 BALL PREDICTS: FRINGE

magic 8 ball predicts: fringe | designlovefest

what do hippies, Gatsby era flappers and country western line dancers all have in common? if you haven’t already guessed it’s their allegiance to fringe!

more than your average ornamental trim we’re fascinated with the emphasis fringe gives to movement. whether you’re letting your inner go go dancer cut a rug on a light up dance floor or your swaying back and forth to a little fleetwood mac in an open field, wearing fringe looks good and feels good.

a modern reworking of a southwestern style leather jacket, an all natural cotton dress or a romantic curtain for the apartment, the newest incarnations of fringe add texture and visual impact to simple shapes and styles.
