Two Penny Blue

2 Jul

I have no days off this week except the 4th of July. Boo. I already knew this week was going to be sucky since I am one of the few people who I know that is actually working all week.

Lucky for me, the July issue of Matchbook Magazine came out and my day was instantly brighter. Yes,  I took an hour of my work day to read the magazine but no one is at work this week so I deemed it okay.

While reading the new issue I came across my new favorite lust worthy company, Two Penny Blue. Partners Marie Whitney and Erin Gates have spent over two years to bring us an awesome new company.

“Two Penny Blue is a collection of luxury jackets and blazers that combines thoughtful classic design with fine fabrics, bespoke detailing and an impeccably tailored fit. Known for its signature silhouettes and effortless sophistication, the Two Penny Blue collection presents a modern twist on classic tailored pieces.

For every jacket purchased, a school uniform is donated to a girl in need in Africa – opening the door to her education, increasing her self-esteem and providing the opportunity for a brighter future. Two Penny Blue was founded in 2010 by designer, Marie Whitney. She created the collection with the dream of using fashion as a way to educate, empower and inspire young women and children around the world.

The Two Penny Blue line is proudly made in the United States with extraordinary quality and care. The collection is produced in small quantities and every jacket is released and as a one-of-a-kind, Limited Edition piece. Trends may come and go- but quality, classic lines and attention to detail always endure.” (via)

Time Out

10 Jan

In the most recent issue of Matchbook Magazine, there was a fascinating article about Ashley Longshore. An artist from Alabama with a funky style who has caught the eye of some major celebs such as Blake Lively and Salma Hayek. I would believe their opinion, as they are two of the words most beautiful women so I’m sure they have an eye for amazing artwork.

However, I thought the biggest take away from the article was about Ashley’s theory on the “time-out” chair. In her mind it isn’t a punishment, it’s an escape. An opportunity to relax, think and drink a glass of wine be fabulous. I love this idea and I now need a lust worthy chair to take a ‘time-out’ in.
