Three (Incredibly Lovely) Things...

First and foremost (and really this merits a post of its own, but I'm still trying to tackle that whole balance thing) is The Equals Project.

The brainchild of the beautiful, talented and immensely soulful Elisabeth Thurston Fraser and Miya Hirabayashi, the project comprises a website, a print publication (coming in 2013) and a philanthropic call to action all celebrating the varied and interesting things women of different backgrounds, in different circumstances, and living different lifestyles think about, do, make, and discuss.

It is truly stunning friends. I am so proud of these ladies!

And while we're on the topic of lovely women, next up is the awesome designer Heidi Middleton (of Sass & Bide) on Tales of Endearment. The 40-year old mom of two girls (India Grace, 6 and Elke Bay, 5) has survived cancer and, in Natalie Joos' words is:

"The picture of happiness and peace. She’s poised, soft-spoken, a little bit shy, curious, sexy, and in the best shape of her life."

And then there's the matter of her home, and her taste, and her wardrobe (and her blog)...Insane. I'm smitten; I'm not gonna lie.

Ok last but not least, I was tooling around on vogue.com this morning and was so excited to see some Dallas action on the home page in the form of designer Jeremy Laing's trip to Dallas for his trunk show at V.O.D.

I love Laing's online "diary" of his time in Dallas...but I especially love how he managed to capture the true essence of our (smart, interesting, artful) city... Thanks Jeremy.
