Playing with Pattern!

It all started with a "what would happen if..." and a "I wonder if I could..." and then before we knew it, we had three dresses on at once and it was MARVELOUS. So if you're wondering about layers and mixing and matching, here are some tips from our pattern layering pros:

WHAT WE'RE COOKING // The Bomb Fishcakes by Jasmine Macharia

We love a good fishcake, and we're huge fans of Nairobi's own celebrity chef, Jasmine Macharia. These butternut-based goodies are baked, not fried, and designed to be made and enjoyed at home! Perfect for dinner or lunch with a crunchy salad or oven fries! Fun fact: she's making a special cameo on our website--looking good, Jaz!!

 

 

 

WHAT WE'RE LISTENING TO // Sampa the Great

Born in Zambia and raised in Botswana, Sampa's music is a totally original sound, bridging hip-hop with traditional southern African musical influences. This album "Birds and the Bee9" is my favorite of hers--super smooth, adding energy to the room while still allowing for space and conversation.  Try playing this album the next time you're making dinner; you will not want to turn it off!

 

 

WHAT WE'RE LISTENING TO // STILL PROCESSING by Jenna Wortham and Wesley Morris

Hosts Jenna and Wesley are culture writers at the New York Times, and in this podcast, they discuss everything from Halle Berry's "Catwoman" to how human relationships have evolved in our new social distanced internet culture. We especially recommend their recent episode, "How to Learn From a Plague," where they talk about activism during the AIDs epidemic and how it applies today.
