Get To Know DIY Darling Grace Atwood

Grace Atwood, of the uber fabulous blog Stripes And Sequins, is one of the most talented and hardworking women I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. I met Grace a while back at a Rebecca Minkoff Girls’ Night Out event, and we quickly became besties. From the outside, her life seems perfect, she juggles work (she holds the position of Director of Social Media at Bauble Bar), her blog, and her personal life like a pro, and still seems finds time to have some fun. She brilliantly comes up with DIY projects that her readers devour, and brands line up to work with the maven.  I sat down with the influencer to discuss her career path, her favorite NYC spots, and her must have beauty products.

Art by Design: Mary Cassatt Inspired Alice + Olivia

One of “les trois grandes dames” of Impressionism, Mary Cassatt, was perhaps best known for her mother-daughter works. She painted the day-to-day, the real interactions betweek the two, like here, a scene of Mom mending some material. What do I take from it? The way she mixed stripes and that light blue mint back in the 1800s. The soft brushstrokes give the painting a light feeling, making this look ripe for spring.

Designer Daily: Ann Yee

Playing on varying proportions for changeable silhouettes in a cool mix of chiffons and knits, Ann Yee has an aesthetic that gets the delicate downtown girl. Her look is versatile and flowing, blocked and billowing. And her knowledge of producing knitwear leads to a sleek product (she got her knitwear cred on the streets of of Elizabeth and James, Alice + Olivia and Barneys).
