I'm not sure if being 36 weeks pregnant has finally caught up with me, or if it's the fact that I've also got a terrible head cold. I just know that on a day like today, I could really go for some of my favorite things and maybe a dose of Dayquil. But since I can't take any of the good meds, I think I'll focus on something more delightful, such as pom-poms, gingham, Alexander Calder, punchy colors, and ballet flats. Enter En Soie—a Swiss brand best known for its iconic écharpes (that's fancy pants for scarves) and foulards, ceramics and jewelry pieces which perfectly represent their unique philosophy of fashion. I'm particularly smitten with this hand-embroidered Vom Faden zum Kleid silk clutch ("from the thread to the dress") in shocking pink. All En Soie products are handmade and vary from item to item making them all the more charming. Shop En Soie here and learn more about the history of the brand here.
In the meantime, I'm off to visit my nutty nurse this morning. Wish me luck! There will definitely be Starbucks in my future.
