Kelly Wearstler's World
Everyone seems to be talking about Kelly Wearstler these days. Maybe it's because she hosted what allegedly was an uber-chic dinner for bloggers in LA last week, or because her store seems poised to open on Melrose just about any day. But I've been thinking a lot about what makes her aesthetic so unusual--and popular. She really goes for broke with whatever she does. Her colors are vivid and the stones she uses in her new jewelry line are all rough cut and with strong colors. Let's just put it this way, none of it is subtle. And yet she's this lovely, sweet almost petite woman and so the contrast is amazing. I've been pouring over her blog that I once wrote about and getting more and more ideas daily. Just fun to revisit every now and then and remember why everyone loves her so.
