I like to believe that walls can talk. The walls of our living room, on the other hand, tell stories of all the places my boyfriend and I have visited, lived in, and love. We each lived in different cities before moving to Philadelphia, so we have posters of Washington D.C. (him) and Boston (me) hanging up, alongside some maps and other posters and prints. My newest addition is this black&white print from Modern Map Art.
The "Vote with Your Wallet" movement is exhausting and important and scary.

Alexa Buckley and Sarah Pierson, founders of Margaux. a newly-launched line of custom, made-to-measure ballet flats, spent four years at Harvard before making the move to NYC to start their company.

DEE OCLEPPO HILFIGER has led many lives. Now, the Rhode Island native is back in the US, married to Tommy Hilfiger, raising another young son, and heading a handbag brand that has already been picked up by Saks Fifth Avenue, Harrods, Hudson Bay and Galeries Lafayette in its first year on the market.
You know what's not cute? Plodding through the airport in ratty sweatpants. We've all seen it, and some of us (ahem) have done it. (Hey, it was an early flight!) But you don't need to tell that to Dorian Lightbown, NIC+ZOE founder and CEO, who designs for jet-setting cool girls.
One of Boston's best bag designers just so happens to also be one of Boston's best interior designers. Meichi Peng has been doing it all for over a decade now, from her perch in Boston's arts-centric SoWa.
East-meets-West is the most overused cliché when it comes to Turkey, but when attempting to describe the country - and Istanbul, a city that refuses to be defined - it’s often glaringly relevant.
Call off the Uber. From noshing on Spanish tapas to drinking craft beer in Alphabet City or perusing vintage clothes and jewelry from indie designers, you never need to leave Downtown NYC.
