To call Jessi Arrington simply a color-lover would be an understatement. Seriously, she is a rainbow—in attire, personality and design–and her blog Lucky So and So documents her whole arc. With its love of shopping, design and color, Lucky So and So may be the most colorful blog known to man. My favorite part has got to be the outfit page. Even for a girl who likes her black, the color combinations and playful attitude behind this fashion blog are inspiring. For even more inspiration, be sure to watch Jessi’s TED talk on the Undies Project, where she packed only a week’s worth of undies for her trip to TED.
I love how nomadic everyone seems to be these days. We’ve met up with a handful of fellow designers in multiple cities on our trip. Taylor Pemberton, unfortunately, is not one of them—though we have tried. We share Minneapolis roots with Taylor, and we had parallel journeys from Savannah to New York City. Plus, Taylor spends a lot of time in one of our favorite towns—San Francisco.
Finally, we got to meet face-to-face over some cheese and bread near his studio in Dumbo. Taylor seems like a great guy. A recent graduate from SCAD, you can tell he will be making some good moves in the future. Check out his work on taylorpemberton.com.
I freakin’ love the Internet. Between the World Wide Web and endeavors like Kickstarter, a whole new outlet has been created for all the creative spirits out there. And even cooler than that, the Internet has the power to spawn real-life connections and one-of-a-kind experiences.
Recently, on a lonely street in Dumbo, Freaker Zach Crain and his crew parked their heavily modified moving truck and dished out some spectacular, gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, all to promote their Kickstarter project: Freaker USA.
Thanks to the Studiomates for setting this up and starting our weekend off right—Freaker-style!
