I had the pleasure of doing a My City feature on Naomi of Design Manifest while I was in Philadelphia a few weeks ago giving a seminar. Naomi and I met in New York while attending BlogFest but were familiar with each other prior to that via blogland. She is delightful, funny, and a very talented interior designer (ahem, hire her). You’ve probably seen her place (or pinned it) on Design*Sponge.
During our day she said, “To me, happiness is guacamole and a margarita.” I knew we were in for some fun.
See where Naomi took me around Philadelphia after the jump!
her sister — a designer for Free People — lives there, and there are lots of little shops to peruse.
Shorts from Urban Outfitters, Free People sandals, the sheer top is Free People … or Urban. I forget. (See a theme here? I heavily use my sister’s [her sister is a designer at Free People] employee discount card). Purse is Prada, watch is kate spade.
The guy on the right was happy to take a photo,
me, even when I make mistakes. Like with any partner, it can be difficult when we don’t see eye to eye. He is more conservative and I am more adventurous. We definitely butt heads over that as I’m constantly pushing his limits! But overall, I think we balance each other out really nicely.
