A sign autumn is on the way: Phoenix is coming back to life and I’m behind on my list of important things to tell you. Follow along here — there are so very many stylish new haunts for your weekend itinerary:
1. Everything I know about Adorn Home, which opened today at The Seville in Scottsdale, tells me that I had better just send them my paycheck and be done with it already, because look:
**UPDATE: Adorn Home has closed. Sob.
Yeah, so that’s all kinds of fun trouble: tufting, Missoni, lucite, oh my. And the Christopher Jagminplate wall is just awesome. (Local artist!) Adorn Home is at 7001 N. Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale: (480) 292-7226.
2. Next up: Sweet Salvage, a vintage market on 7th Avenue, open just four days each month with fresh finds each time. The grand opening was Thursday, and the shop will be open all weekend from 10-6, and then closed until the four-day event in September. I’m excited for vintage flash cards and old wooden things. 4809 N. 7th Ave., Phoenix.
3. There is now a J. Crew within five minutes of my house. This is terrible news. Our favorite place to find trouble is open at Biltmore Fashion Park. I want everything, most particularly this:
Miltary buttons and popped collars kill me every time. This baby will probably never even exist at the Phoenix store, but we can wish, can’t we? (In my new house, I am using my coat collection as decor. Truly. You’ll see, eventually, when I’m finished.) $350, here.
4. Some oh-so-stylish locals have been working very hard on Hello There, House! — a home-centric market/conference/party coming to Tempe in October. (Think how-to classes galore.) This Saturday, the hosts are hanging out at The Herb Box — never a bad place to be around lunchtime — offering mini make and takes and a closet tutorial from Cardigan Empire’s Reachel Bagley — who is impossible not to adore. There’s a swag bag, too.
The brilliance behind this event: Ms. Rosemary Watson herself, who is one of my nicest readers. She makes things like this chair — and I want her to teach me how.
