About four years ago when we were styling our first collection for Voloshin, my friend Christie (who was styling the shoot) said I just had to come with her to the Queen Village boutique, Moon + Arrow. I was blown away with the beauty and care with which the store was arranged and curated. Chelsea, the owner, is a total muse, earth mama, quirky, intelligent lady—and I'm so thrilled to have had the chance to catch up with her for a blog feature. Read on to hear all about her journey.
I’ve always wanted to go to Mexico City, but since I’m such a beach person, I couldn’t commit to a city vacation. After doing a little research, though, I realized that while it’s a six hour drive to the beach, it’s only a 30 minute flight to Puerto Escondido, a very cool surf town. After that revelation, we booked our trip for the same dates our kids were on vacation with their grandparents, and embarked on our whirlwind vacation of art, culture and food. Here’s a rundown of some of our favorite spots.
I met Peyton at a pop-up event at Joan Shepp and was so taken with her ceramic work. Her neutral palette with a little pop of fun really resonated with me, and I loved the silhouettes of her ceramics—especially her plate bowls, which are especially great for grain bowls or salads (two of my favorite meals!). Read on to hear about how Peyton started her business, balances work life with her yoga practice, and hear more about her super cool and unique personal style.
I met Angela through her first store in Northern Liberties. We started selling stationery there and I loved popping in to drop off product and talk shop about all things design and business—two topics we can both go on for hours about! Now she has grown her business to an incredibly inspiring store in Rittenhouse Square of Philadelphia and has expanded her fine jewelry offerings. Read below to find out about her shop, design inspiration, personal style, and more.
Our Fall 19 Collection is heavily influenced by pioneer living, fused with Indian textiles, and modern silhouettes. While designing the collection, I was reading my daughter a book about Laura Ingalls Wilder’s life that we picked up in a used book store and I felt very inspired by her life as a young girl on the Western frontier.
