Sylvia Plath: A New Exhibit, Book, + Film

Writer Sylvia Plath is having quite the moment of late. The National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. has an exhibition titled One Life: Sylvia Plath that traces her journey through photographs and memorabilia. I wish I were able to check it out (it’s open until May 20, 2018 if you’re so inclined). Also this month, the author’s unabridged letters are being published in a new book. It’s sure to offer an intriguing glimpse into the troubled author’s early life. Last but not least, Dakota Fanning is set to star in an upcoming film adaption of The Bell Jar, which will be directed by Kirsten Dunst. Sign me up for all three. READ POST

Venetian Slippers by Le Monde Beryl

My latest crush? The Venetian-inspired flats by Le Monde Beryl. Founded in 2015 by friends Lily Atherton Hanbury and Katya Shyfrin, the luxurious silk, velvet, and suede slippers are like candy for your feet. A spin-off on the classic gondolier shoe, the label’s name “pays homage to the pioneering aviatrix and adventurer Beryl Markham who was the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic from east to west.” A brand story I can get behind! Shop the shoes at Moda Operandi, Matches Fashion, and Alex Eagle London.

Below, find more glimpses of the space and my suggestions on how you can get a similar look in your own home. READ POST
