10 of Our Summertime Favorites From Blake Lively’s Preserve Site
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.
“Here at Preserve, there are people, stories, essays, videos and goods, which hopefully inspire your home, your style and your tongue,” Blake writes. “There’s expensive stuff. Inexpensive stuff. And everything in between. But their value is up to you. We may romanticize it, calling it treasure. What we’re really saying is, we see worth on every level.”
