gilt edge | about me

Hi.

Thanks for visiting my blog! Lots of clothes, oodles of beauty, a few books, and some food. I love hearing from you - so drop me a line! xoxo

I'm upset at myself for waiting so long to read All the Light We Cannot See.  It was so good, so well written.  The two stories in this book are so perfectly intertwined, yet contrast so drastically.  I especially connected with Marie-Laure, as I am sure most people who read this book do.  She became so real to me, and I cared about her and her journey- I love books that do that to you. 

Favorite Quote:

So how, children, does the brain, which lives without a spark of light, build for us a world full of light?

Why You Should Read It:

It's an amazing book.

add me on: goodreads

We took these photos at The Queens Kickshaw, one of my favorite spots in Astoria.  They have amazing coffee and are known for their grilled cheese sandwiches.  We went for brunch this past Saturday, which was such a packed day I took this dress from day to night by switching up my accessories.  Love when you can do that!
