Do You Have a Crush on Emerson?
Did you see the interview with Emerson Bethany Fry, founder/designer of EmersonMade in this week's New York Times Style Magazine? If not, check it out.
From the interview: If you’ve read an indie fashion blog lately, you’ve probably found yourself on the Web site of the studio EmersonMade, whose chief designer and model, Emerson Bethany Fry, seems to have inspired 1,000 girl crushes.
How true is that statement? Yep, I have a girl crush on Emerson. I mean, the design business, the organic farm in New Hampshire, super-cute hubby Ryan (her partner in many of the photos on her website) and voyages to far-away lands to scout out the latest fabrics for her clothing line - what's not to love? Seriously, I'm crushing hard on that lifestyle. (Not that I'd give up my own, but a day-in-the-life of Emerson would be pretty darn cushy-cool.)
EmersonMade began with a few signature pieces, primarily floral pin accents and clutch purses. Her brand then grew to include a clothing line and other accessories. How fabulous is the London 1960s coat, above, that is part of her fall line?? Oh, to have a few spare hundreds lying around, what damage I could do.
So many of you know this story, because, like the NT Times article notes, EmersonMade is a legend among bloggers. Just thought I'd add another entry to her Google search list. :)
It's Wednesday, folks. A week from today my daughter will start first grade. Where did the time go?? I'll sign off now before I launch into a rendition of "Sunrise, Sunset."
