Oh, Aerin. How is it that we are SO obsessed with you. Yes, I've posted these amazing objects before. And repeatedly swooned over each new launch of your all-encompassing lifestyle brand. It is clear you are here to take over the world one gilded accessory at a time. And we than you for it. Between your fabric line, your stunning line of home accessories and your beauty collection, I can't help but admire your vision, your aesthetic and your ability to be a design powerhouse. Your "organic luxe" vibe oozes easy Saint Tropez glamour. Thank you, thank you, for continuing to dish out sleek, chic, fabulous objet trouvé. We adore them.
And like all great brand builders, you've made us see these luxuries as necessities. Do I need a trio of brass bowls shaped like hearts? Apparently I do, since I can't stop ogling them. And what of an agate geode that has likewise been dipped into that lustrous metal? Do I "need" it as I need water and food. My aching desire to own such things is a nod to your powers as a seductress. You've made luxury seem as essential to life as the air we breathe. Which, it should be notes, you've also scented with your line of fragrant candles. The better to faint upon the chaise in a fabric covered in your new textile line wearing kitten heels designed by you. Brilliant, my dear. Brilliant! You've wrapped it all up in a neat & tidy (gold) bow.
More importantly, this sudden, seemingly silent and all-consuming expanse of your luxury lifestyle brand has given me new vision, new goals and a new model from which to base my own success. Previously I've been keen to watch the rise of successful brand builders like Barbara Barry, Richard Branson and others. But having someone so much closer in age and aesthetic has given me renewed energy and a more laser-like focus on what I intend to achieve. So than you for that, and for enabling my obsession with all things brass and gold. We heart you for it. Geode // nesting bowls // three gilt-lined porcelain bowls // heart bottle stopper
