In the Company of Women: Advice from Cheryl Day + Best of the Web

Cheryl Day is happiness and love personified. I’ve had the absolute pleasure and honor of having her

Cheryl Day is happiness and love personified. I’ve had the absolute pleasure and honor of having her as a trusted friend for a long time and having her story — and advice — as a part of In the Company of Women means more to me than I can possibly describe. So it seemed only right to close out this week (our pub week!) with her quote from the book. One that reminds me, and everyone reading, to be brave, be strong and be yourself. You are already exactly who and what you need to be to be successful.
Today I’m in Austin, TX (come join us!) for the book tour and as I head into the weekend, my mind is awash in thanks for all of the amazing people that have been a part of this book coming to life. Thank you to all of you reading for supporting this project and for picking up a copy for yourself, your friends, your family and loved ones. This project means more to me than anything else I’ve done in my work life so far and I am so proud and so thrilled to have it out in the world today. If you want to pick up a copy, or join us on the book tour, CLICK HERE to find the links you need to purchase either. xo, grace

Not Simply Sequins: Artist Ebony G. Patterson’s intricate tapestries carry a socially-conscious message more relevant today than ever. Her timely pieces at the last two EXPO Chicago art shows have blown me away.
Adaptive Clothing: Kudos to Mindy Scheier of Runway of Dreams and Tommy Hilfiger for launching a line of childrenswear for those differently-abled. An Interior Upgrade: This stunning 150-year-old home in Menorca, Spain holds onto its heritage while still feeling fresh and functional thanks to a load of upgrades.
Back to School with Attitude: Our very own Kevin O’Gara’s dorm room makeover proves that getting back to basics doesn’t mean simple or boring.
Summer Send-Off Cooking: Chef Danny Seo’s coconut grilled shrimp wrap recipe is bookmarked and ready for when I finally (and reluctantly) say “Adios!” to summer.
Menswear Through the Ages: Forever relive LACMA’s fabulous menswear retrospective with Reigning Men: Fashion in Menswear, the new coffee table book capturing all the looks from the recent exhibition.
