The Week

Before we get into the frivolous matter of our favorite finds this week, let’s pause for a moment to pay respect to Kate Spade… As you probably know, the fashion world was rocked this week with the devastating news of her death. You can read a statement from her husband and this piece from the New York Times beautifully summarizes what Kate Spade stood for.

Her suicide is a stark reminder of the truth of a favorite quote of mine:

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

This iconic American fashion designer dubbed the mantra “live colorfully” which resonates with us so powerfully around here. But truly, mental illness does not discriminate. If you or someone you know is struggling with depression, anxiety, or anything else of the kind, please reach out to someone — a friend, a family member, a counselor, a doctor, a therapist. Further, if you or someone you love is struggling with suicidal thoughts, please reach out to 800-274-TALK to speak with the National Suicide Prevention Hotline for 24/7 confidential support.

You are loved. You matter.

Now we’ll lighten things up a bit with our favorite reads and finds from the week…
