The New York International Gift Fair is happening this week and I've been lucky enough to walk through and discover some fun new brands, which is one of my favorite things to do. It has also been incredibly inspirational in the way of home decor - I have a lot of ideas about how to spruce up my humble abode. The only downside is that this particular fair is so huge and I'm left feeling stressed about all the good stuff I know I missed.
Alas, some of the highlights from what I DID see:
I loved Malabar Bay - apparel and accessories in bright, Lilly-esque colors and prints.
Totally fell for this top hat seahorse by iomoi. I saw it on a guest towel in the Matouk booth and was thrilled to find out it is available on many other items, including this canvas personalized pillow.
My obsession with delicate jewelry and the display of dainty turquoise necklaces lured me into the Katie Diamond booth. This one has been officially added to my wish list!
Last but certainly not least, I have to give a shout out to my friend Carrie Dunham and her genius handbag line. These clutches are designed to have interchangeable covers, but can also be worn wiithout. The covers can be monogrammed! I'm only having trouble deciding which color I want. (The monogram is a must.)
