A.P.C. Quilts: How to Make a French-American Quilt

I love everything about A.P.C.'s quilts. I love that they remind me of the quilts my mom made when I was growing up. I love the classic American craft patterns. I love that the simple blocked patchwork feels decidedly modern. I love that A.P.C. can mix heritage, their archive, and history and actually feel sincere. I really love how cozy it would be to cuddle under one.

Finally, my years of going to quilt fairs feels a little cool and the sewing machine in my closet might get some use.

New Kid in Town

(New Kid Dreamcore Boots, New Kid Tonk Boots, New Kid Runstitch Loafter)

These shoes by New Kid are not my style at all, but I wish they were and would definitely be jealous of other girls pulling them off. Bonus, they're beyond reasonably priced.
