Kiel and I moved into our new home almost a year ago and we are finally starting to renovate some of the rooms. The first room on our list is our guest room. We have family and friends stay over often and really wanted to create a welcoming, comfortable space. Right now we pretty much have just a bed and a couple of pictures on the wall — the decor is very minimal.
This year Kiel and I attended the Kentucky Derby on behalf of Mass Mutual who sponsored my trip. Our weekend at Churchill Downs was gorgeous aside from the rain on Saturday. My absolute favorite part of the Derby is the people watching and mint juleps. It’s amazing to see so many people in one place dressed up so beautifully.
Before Kiel and I started Kiel James Patrick, we used to drive all over New England hunting for vintage threads — old Lacoste polos, vintage band t-shirts, vintage Lilly Pulitzer, etc to sell on eBay. The hunt was always a thrill. It was exciting to see how high certain pieces would sell for and how many people were watching an item. Fast forward many years later, I find myself on the other end of the eBay transaction.
