What I Like Wednesday: Everything, but the Kitchen Sink

Wednesday  is dedicated to things I like, or have newly discovered I like. Normally I would do these in categories, but there are so many good things I like right now that I like that are not in the same category save for that their all AWESOME!  So in the spirit of doing away with categories I’m throwing in everything, but the kitchen sink. {only because I didn’t see one that was new that I liked.}

1. The So Good App 

If you want to find  all the great places, shops, businesses,  and places to mingle mix and be, locally it’s all here in a wonderfully designed visually appealing app. Recommendation: IMMEDIATE DOWNLOAD

2. Broods

Talk about love at first sound. I love the sound of these guys. Caleb Nott and Georgia Nott have created some of the coolest sounds. Perfect for rainy days, or just chill work days… Enjoy.

3. So Worth Loving Tour

I have followed So Worth Loving since their first vintage garments printed with the phrase “So Worth Loving” on the back. Their blog inspires and promotes loving yourself. An amazing blog, amazing merch, a mazing message and its going to be an amazing tour. Can’t wait to see them when they roll in to my city at the end of the month.

4. Jem the Movie

Let’s just say  I screamed a little when I saw that Jem the Movie is coming to life. I screamed double time when I saw that  we the audience the lovers of Jem can  get n on the movie making. I cannot wait to see the all the Jem style moments.. and the misfits too.

5. TopShop X Adidas Originals

After a tough week for Love with the break up of Goop and Chris Martin, it was nice to  know that love is real for some. So of course the Love  between TopShop and Adidas brought about something really wonderful that we can all  be moved by  love yet again. A must see collection.

6. Shop Artifacts

Ahhh.. Shop Artifacts! Of course this would be on my list  of what I like as this is one of my favorite online boutiques. One because it is my online boutique and  two because it has amazingly cool vintage and handmade goods that you’ll love. The blog is kind of cool too.

Happy Wednesday people… Friday is almost here. I hope you enjoy What I like  just as much as I do!

Sunshine, Sun Rays, Better Days and L’Wren Scott

This week Fashion and well the world lost another incredibly talented, gorgeous, beauty.. L’Wren Scott

While most of us myself included have never met her.. So many.. {many} of us have embraced her work, loved designs and eagerly awaited what was next. However, after taking her own life… we will never see those beautiful creations again  or the wonderfully beautiful  L’Wren Scott

It puts life in to perspective when you look  from a far or up close wonderful people, with more talent, poise and the ability to captivate and audience and or a room with just their being…  {Alexander McQueen, Isabella Blow to name a tiny few}and yet they don’t recognize how much their rays lands on so many.. and they give up. 

As they champion everyday, smile and beauty in tow, talent on hand.. but yet sadness inside. I guess the inalienable fact  is those people are not just in the lime light of our world..but could be the very people near and dear to us…it could even be us.

Not to sound macabre, but this is the reality of our world, is that so many fail to see what they bring to this world. If only… If only we took every moment we could to be in a moment.. when we are talking with our family, friends, colleagues , even our baristas ..and just make sure we are not missing the moment to know that their presence in this world is needed. We may not be a able to save anyone, but what if, just what if your kind words… saved a life. What if your words… penetrated the walls of insecurity and feeling of worthiness and your ray of sunshine melted sadness…What if? 

My parents raised us with the idea.. to leave people better than we found them.. I have watched my parents give waiters or waitresses who start out seemingly as if they hate life and us.. the most attention and watch that same waitress/waiter turn in to the most engaging, joyful persons in the whole place. My family has taken that on.. being great doesn’t start with your talent.. being  beautiful doesn’t start with your looks..It starts with how you treat that person who is standing next to you.. {we have to sometimes put down our gadgets to notice them}. 

And if the person who is struggling to feel like more.. or feels like you have nothing to live for is you…. email me at MissFancyThreads@gmail.com and I will try to connect you with some great organizations as well as  let you know… that life can change in an instant.. your good, your joy happens at the corner of your next thought.. so think GOOD and know that your existence, your very presence is needed in this earth.. your ray of sunshine is needed..and wanted.

L’Wren Scott I didn’t know, but her work moved me and inspired me.. all the way here in little Columbia, SC…how wonderful is that.

So for all of you.. who need or are the ones needed….
