From a wild girls’ weekend on Fire Island to my first ever “gone fishin'” trip with the boys on the Delaware River Gap to a two-year-old’s birthday party in Brooklyn, there is one towel that carried me through Summer 2012, much like a ::magic:: carpet.


A happy orange splash of instant irreverence; a bold, authoritative statement of personal space and self-worth.

A towel to change my perspective on towels: Towels should be sexy. They’re more important than your bikini if you do it right. A towel is your stage; your home for the day. It can be the hub of entertaining or a place to stretch and meditate. If there’s one piece of sartorial advice I can give you for next summer, it’s ditch your one-person towel and invest in something large that you absolutely love – and that complements your coloring and key beach accessories.

I AM BUSY towel

Most notably, this towel proved to be a decadent canvas.

A canvas for bodies (part one), for possessions (part two), for memories (part three).

I’ve said a lot in words, but for now I have but one message to tell you:
