If you were just thinking about how you’d like more artisanal home goods and accessories in your drawers and closets, Blake Lively’s got news for you.
The actress and style maven launched her lifestyle website named Preserve today, and wrote a letter from the editor detailing what she aims to accomplish by combining an e-magazine, an e-commerce hub and a philanthropic endeavor to showcase unique wares handmade all over the country.
