I love Uncovet.com. Much like Gilt, or Just Fab, Uncovet brings to its registered users a selection of goods that is crush worthy and cool, but Uncovet makes its case championing the new designer, the edgy collection and the chic find.
With new daily selections hand picked by Uncovet stylist, the online boutique gathers tshirts, charm bracelets and knick-knacks from design shops all over the web. This particular collection caught my eye on a chilly, pre-spring evening – check out the rest the site has to offer.
Aquamarine Necklace $49; Audrey Hepburn Print $36; Petrified Wood Holder $27; FUCC Off Crewneck $70; Heirloom Tote – Cognac 270; ‘Well Hello There’ Notecards $19
I call this series: “Sorry, Mom”. Alternate titles considered: “Ladies are easier to paint than men,” “Things not to google when looking for inspiration”.
Last weekend Laura and I made our second appearance at the Randolph Street Market, home to Chicago antique dealers, indie designers, vintage collectors and unique crafters.
I think it’s important for us all to acknowledge that I was having a really great hair day that day.
But I digress. We marched ourselves through rain, wind and the west loop and headed to scoop up last minute Christmas presents and hopefully score some jewelry while we were at it. We had only been during the summer when the parking lot was jammed with vendors and empanada hawkers, so while we weren’t quite sure what to expect. The pared down, indoor-only venue was certainly less overwhelming, but we still had a great time perusing vintage Chanel and pawing our way through bins of antique necklaces. Can’t wait until next time!
Words to remember, whatever your craft.

Hope your week is off to a great start!
I think I comfortably speak for both of us when I say that the Randolph Street Market far surpassed our best expectations. Though it was quite a trek (trains, planes and automobiles…no joke) and possibly one of the hotter days of the year, we spent hours perusing the incredibly diverse stalls and pressing our eager little noses against cases of vintage Chanel and crocodile Temporis watches. We made a few fun purchases, avoided the luring temptation of crystal chandeliers and walked home happy. We’re already looking forward to next month.
Just around the corner!

Though I’ve been Googling all morning, all I can tell you about this art installation is that it is in Agueda, Portugal, and it is beautiful.
It’s a rainy day here and these photos put a big smile on my face – I hope they do the same for you!
