Listen Up: We’re #ReadingThings (Again) and Talking to the Designer Behind Some of Our Dreamiest Dresses

Listen Up 04/10/2017

This week, we’ve got a lotta gorgeousness happening. Christine Alcalay, creator of a couple of our favorite dress editions of all time (including one Claire wore to her rehearsal dinner and this somehow-still-in-stock gem) stops by to talk about how handmade clothes get, well, made. And!  We’re here with another round of #ReadingThings, all about the insanely beautifully illustrated graphic novel This One Summer by Jillian and Mariko Tamaki.


Another lovely thing: This episode of #ReadingThings is brought to you by our friends at Warby Parker. They offer free try-on (shipping is covered both ways!), so you can test out your next pair on your couch while catching up on an excellent book. To scope out a collection of C&E’s hand-selected specs, head on over to
