“Just be yourself, but better.” 🌞

I was watching tv last night and I heard something that stuck with me, It was advice that Meryl Streep passed to Carrie Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd when Billie was looking for advice on entering acting in Hollywood- “just be yourself, but better!”.

Streep’s advice is perfect for navigating the endlessly bizarre world of Hollywood, and is in sync with one of her other universally relevant quotes-

“The formula of happiness and success is just being actually yourself, in the most vivid possible way you can.” Meryl Streep

The right piece of clothing or jewelry in the perfect fit-pattern-color can make you feel stronger, sexier, more powerful. Like yourself, but better!

Here are a few of my favorite statement pieces in the shop at the moment!

Sun Please…

The trees and flowers are blooming regardless of the wet weather that Providence has been experiencing lately. Here on Westminster Street, there are so many places to see and experience regardless of the overcast skies! Did you see the Providence Journal article this morning online? There is a great shot of what Queen of Hearts & Modern Love looked like in the roaring 20’s! Just like the seasons, Downcity Providence is an ever-changing landscape of businesses, buildings, and public spaces for everyone to enjoy.

With everything that is newly created, there is some component from the past. With the upcoming Indowncity Rock Garden Party almost here, we have filled Modern Love with everything you will need to enjoy Summer to the fullest! These items are greatly influenced by nostalgic items of the past but made with the highest quality that modern technologies afford.

Did you watch Marvelous Mrs. Maisel this last season when she went to the Catskills? Well if you loved those Upstate N.Y. scenes as much as I did, you will appreciate these new chairs by Lawn Chair U.S.A. These beautifully made chairs are vintage inspired but made with new style webbing that will not sag or mold. The light aluminum frames make them easy to carry to your destination with one hand so you have your other free to carry a cocktail! 🤣

grill

2 -in-1 is always a great thing for when space is limited in the city. If you are like me and have no closet space to spare at home, multi-functioning items are a must have! Get your charcoal and beers ready because this is the perfect, little grill that is housed in a cooler bag! I know what you are thinking… How is there space for everything in such a small bag? The top unzips to unveil a fully lined cooler. Unzip the second zipper to reveal a small charcoal grill that folds up for easy carry and storage. The best part about this 2-in-1 piece is that there is a carrying strap for easy transport. This would be awesome for the beach, park, or on your boat!

cutting board

Get your cheeseboard on with this new acacia wood serving board. This board with it’s interesting shape and thumb hole, makes it a must have item for parties. Whether you are serving chips and dip, charcuterie, or use this to hold pinch bowls for spices, this board is great! I love taking one of my long boards and resting it over two of my range burners. It dresses up my boring apt. range and is functional to hold prep bowls while cooking!

If only Little Red Riding Hood had this collapsable tote to go to Grandmother’s house… These totes just arrived at Modern Love and we are loving them. Choose your color of choice and load this cooler with everything you need from the grocers or farmers market. Easy to carry, functional, and light! What more could you ask for?
