nautical inspirations from fleabags


Morning guys! We made some major headway on our new D*S office yesterday, and part of that progress involved investigating nautical hardware and lighting. Amy and I have a soft spot for nautical themes, so the Fleabags team became kindred spirits when they announced that their new collection was inspired by Baltimore ports, the Chesapeake Bay (my home area!) and fishermen. The navy blue and red color palette is one of my favorites, and their new line of hemp/organic cotton clutches/iPad travelers are just gorgeous. They’re clean, classic and modern — a powerful trio of qualities that inspires me to move from admiring to purchasing. You can check out their latest designs and shop online right here. (Each bag is handmade in the USA and part of a limited edition.) xo, grace
