MAKERVIEW: GRACE ATWOOD of Stripes and Sequins
Why she’s rad: We love Grace’s Cape Cod chic style. Stripes and Sequins isn’t just the name of her blog it seems to be a bit of a mission statement. She rocks our favorite summer uniform, a striped tee with layers of jewelry, like nobody’s business. Grace’s blog combines killer DIYs with fashion posts and the occasional post from her summer travels. Keep up with Grace on her blog or find her keeping it social for Bauble Bar. You’ll probably end up inspired to make a friendship bracelet or five.
