When enough people tell us that we must go check out a new business…well, we must go check it out! We’re a curious duo. The store in question is Blueprint CT Home, located on the lovely Litchfield Green.

Blueprint CT carries a curated collection of elements for the home. From vintage furniture, textiles, glass, and art objects from around the world, to unique items by of-the-moment artisans.

Say hello to a treasure trove of lust-worthy things…

Today’s fashion post is brought to you by J. Seitz & Co., located in the extremely picturesque town of New Preston. Amanda Seitz, store co-owner, and F.I.T. graduate put together these amazing outfits for us! Enjoy a little virtual shopping, and plan a trip in the near future. Can’t get there anytime soon? You can also order by phone ☎️

Hair styled by Salvatore Anthony Hair Studio (learn more about him later this week!) and shot on location around New Preston.

It’s ok to be touchy-feely when you walk into R. Derwin Clothiers; in fact, Andrea Derwin encourages it. Richard Derwin opened R. Derwin Clothiers in the 80s and together he and Andrea now oversee the business, along with Andrea’s son Jonathan. When we went in a couple of weeks ago to get styled for our shoot, our hands were in heaven feeling every luxurious fabric Andrea pointed out to us. Cashmere, mohair, baby alpaca, leatha like butta – we touched it all!

We’ve been in to visit Maureen Kenny, owner of Nutmeg Olive Oil (located on the New Milford Green) a couple of times now. We’re hooked on her ultra and extra virgin olive oils and balsamic vinegars. Maureen carries so many great flavored oils and vinegars and can recommend combinations that will make an iceberg lettuce salad taste super fancy.

Brad Tranfield, owner of Robertson Jewelers in New Milford, invited us into his store with open arms. He was brimming with enthusiasm talking about all the amazing lines he carries, the history behind his store’s location, the things that sets his store apart from others, and most importantly, the willingness to let us try on some of his gems so we could play at being jewelry models for the morning. How fabulous!
