02. Standstill Tea: Should you plan to indulge in mooncakes, we asked our friends at Standstill Tea for a tea pairing. They recommended their Gui Fei Oolong, a Taiwanese Oolong noted for its leaves bitten by jassids. Tea makers have discovered that tea nibbled on by these insects before the tea leaves are harvested results in a lovely stonefruit, honey-like aroma. Trust us when we tell you the unique flavor is delicious!
03. No Life Exhibit at Marta: “No Life” by Wentrcek and Zebulon at Marta Gallery in LA, an exhibit exploring the question of what we need to live through muted, spartan furniture pieces (made with unexpected materials like foam!). Exhibit runs through October 28th.
06. @metagirl.studio: Last month, we mentioned our love of gorpcore style, and we just discovered metagirl.studio. Embellishing sneakers with feminine details like pearls, lace, and ruffles, creative Caterina Mongillo takes streetwear to a whole new level.
