I can't believe it's been a year since I started blogging. It really started as just an outlet for me to feel creative, connected, and inspired. This space has definitely provided that outlet for me, and as I've stuck with it, great opportunities have started to come my way. One of those being an event with Kendra Scott at the end of the month. A friend of a friend asked me to get involved to help support the Boys and Girls Club along with Kendra Scott, and that was the exact push I needed to commit to changing this blog from just a platform for my personal ramblings to creating a brand dedicated to sharing my take on all things style. With that change comes a new look, and a new name. In the words of Holly Golightly,
"If I could find a real life place that'd make me feel like Tiffany's, then I'd buy some furniture and give the cat a name."
The story of the name itself is kind of long and weird, but I'm going to tell you anyway. The phrase Truffle Season is found in the old classic Suit and Tie by Justin Timberlake and Jay Z. If you know me, you know that Justin Timberlake is life. It's in the middle of Jay's rap verse where he drops the bomb, "This is truffle season. Tom Ford tuxedos for no reason."
Not long after the release of this anthem, my boyfriend and I were discussing dinner one night, and we decided on sesame crusted tuna, as one does. Fun fact: We found out that black and white sesame seeds mixed together are called "tuxedo seeds." When we found these at the grocery store we almost simultaneously exclaimed, "This is truffle season - tuxedo seeds for no reason," because apparently we're those people. Truffle Season kind of became a phrase for us that was synonymous with living in style daily and the attitude of "Treat yo'self." Should I wear sequins on a tuesday? Sure, it's truffle season. Should I buy this vintage Halston gown? duh, it's truffle season. Should I wear that gown on the couch and eat chinese food out of the container? you know it, it's truffle season.
So when I started thinking about names for the blog, Truffle Season was the first thing to come to mind. I thought about other options, but I just couldn't shake Truffle Season. This space is going to be filled with things that are part of my year round "Truffle Season", be it the latest clothes off the runway, the best food I've ever eaten, the coolest places I visit, or the new show I'm watching on Netflix.
I hope you'll join me and in case you haven't figured it out...
