Best of the Web + Beautiful Chinatown

by Grace Bonney

Age, experience and beauty are things I think about a lot these days — and the amount of the first two affects the way we see beauty and the world. I’ve become increasingly interested in appreciating and understanding the way those with more life experience see the world. That interest led me to one of my new favorite Instagram feeds, Chinatown Pretty. I first discovered this feed through Gregory Han and have been following it happily ever since. Run by Andria Lo and Valerie Luu, Chinatown Pretty celebrates the incredibly stylish residents of San Francisco’s Chinatown neighborhood. I once read that as we get older, we dress more for ourselves and less for others, and this feed truly relishes in that sort of style. If you need a little visual inspiration this weekend, check out their feed for uplifting images, stories, color and pattern. xo, grace
