// Our 3 Favorite Things This Week //

/ Keds Collaborations /

Nothing kicks off the school year quite like a shiny new pair of canvas Keds. If there were a pair of shoes synonymous with back-to-school footwear, these would be it. Fashion designers have recognized the simple brilliance of the canvas shoes and have made excellent use of the blank canvas they provide. Past collaborations have included Madewell and Opening Ceremony. Current collaborations include a super cute Kate Spade collection and Taylor Swift.

/ 24 Best Websites for Women /

Yesterday the newly refurbished Refinery29 compiled a well-curated list of the best websites for women. Forbes recently published a similar list with their 100 Best Websites for Women that garnered some negative reception with accusations of being too gendered. In response, the writers at R29 compiled their own list and included some of our favorites such as Tales of Endearment, A Cup of Jo and Design Milk.

As Summer 2013 comes to a close (looking at you, Labor Day), we particularly enjoyed this introspective piece on the design aesthetics and history of roadside motels and the postcards that showcased their retro modern look. Writer Rebecca Gross gives us a history of the “photochrome” postcard and portrays that romanticized time when Americans, post war, got in their cars and hit the highway.
