Have you met our V&V team? We hope you have, but if you haven't yet had the pleasure, we are handing the mic to 3 of our staff members here on the blog today to help you get better acquainted. Learn a bit about what inspires them, the things they love in our community and their favorite V&V picks for Fall! Say Bonjour to Zoë, Audrey and Catherine...
What would Jane Birkin wear? A retro, plaid, oversized coat, a timeless black turtle, a crop flared denim & a cross body bag. Done & done! This look is funky, unpredictable & transports you to a different generation. I'm on board.
What's on the top shelves of inspiration library right now?
My mind is still blown after recently reading Patti Smith's new rock n' roll memoir, Just Kids. The scene is NYC's historic Chelsea Hotel in the early 70s where she frequents with artistic icons, rock musicians, & beat poets. It chronicles her creative & cultural experiences there with genius photographer, Robert Maplethorpe. The fashion is insane & the old black & white photos of the pair are enough to make you swoon!
What is Durham's best kept secret?
Without question, Turtle Hole -- a dreamy little swimming hole at the end of the Eno River. Babbling brooks, rope swings, hammocks -- the kind of place you can lose yourself in a good book on a Sunday afternoon. ;)
Where/when are you most inspired?
When someone is visiting you in Durham, where is the first place you take them?
