I'm a huge fan of bringing patterns and colors from Africa into design in interesting ways, and I love what Irina Graewe has done in her Africa meets Neon interiors gallery. I've been browsing through and seeing these colorful fabrics, and after my conversations with my dear friends Esther and Susan, I'm really excited to be leaving for Kenya and Uganda at the end of this week (as long as the London airspace clears!).

I like to tell my little sister Laura Grace that she copies everything I do (and for the most part, it's true!). But I have to give her credit for being the first one to buy a yellow JCrew coat (pictured above on me and below on someone on The Sartorialist). I copied her and picked out a different yellow coat from JCrew a year later.
