JULY 2014

note from katie&jane

J

uly greetings, Matchbook girls!

We hope your summer is getting along swimmingly. This month we visited three different corners of the globe to share places of spectacular history and style. First up, we took a trip down to Georgia to explore the Hostess City. Savannah has long been at the top of our travel wish list and we're pleased to report it more than lived up to our high expectations. From the sweet potato soufflé at Mrs. Wilke's to Leopold's banana ice cream, our team gladly indulged in every aspect of Southern fare. Read our Savannah guide for our tips on where to eat, drink, shop, and explore on your next trip down South. We certainly can't get back soon enough!

Next, take a jaunt over to Europe to our new friend Jennifer Diederich of fashion label Suite. Her fun styling caught our eye on Instagram and we simply had to learn more. The former Project Runway contestant moved from New York to Florence for her handsome Italian husband and has been enjoying narrow cobblestone streets and charming outdoor markets ever since. Read on to learn of her love of Schiaparelli, Italian coffee, and Breakfast at Tiffany's. Jennifer is a Matchbook kindred spirit if there ever was one. Last but certainly not least, we boarded a train to the picturesque Hamptons. Our cover girl, Joey Wolffer, not only helps run her family's Wölffer Estate Vineyard in Sagaponack, but also has her own accessory boutique on wheels, The Styleliner. We had a magical morning with Joey chatting all things rosé, jewels, and travel. We hope you fall for her style and charm as much as we did. Wishing you a most splendid July! Don't forget the sunscreen! KATIE + JANE

10 THINGS YO U D I D N ' T K N O W A B O U T. . .

Carmen Miranda

1.

PORTRAIT OF A L ADY

Actor, comedian, and singer Carmen Miranda (1909–1955) was far more than met the eye. From the radios of Brazil to the glittering screens of Hollywood, she captivated the world with her “Brazilian bombshell” flair. Read on to learn some lesser known facts about the lovely Latin icon.

Though she was known as the “Brazilian bombshell,” Miranda was actually born in Portugal. Her parents moved the family to Brazil while she was still an infant.

2.

The flamboyant performer was educated in a convent. Raised in a devoutly Catholic household, she did her best to keep her showbiz dreams under wraps.

3.

Miranda was born with deformed feet and had to wear special shoes when performing.

4.

Far from the stage, Miranda began her career as a department store clerk. She loved to entertain her coworkers with songs, eventually landing a gig on the local Rio radio.

5.

While singing at Rio's Casino da Urca in 1939, Miranda was noticed by Broadway producer Lee Shubert, who arranged to bring her to New York. It was her big break. 18

matchbook

6.

Miranda was talented both on and off the screen. She loved to draw and was known to be an accomplished sketch artist and costume designer.

7.

Miranda always gave back, donating a generous percentage of her earnings to the poor in South America.

8.

While taping a song-and-dance number for The Jimmy Durante Show, Miranda suffered a heart attack. She died the following morning in her Beverly Hills Home at the young age of forty-six.

9.

Miranda’s body was shipped to Rio for burial where nearly one million people lined the streets to mourn their lost national icon.

10.

You can still see her colorful costumes for yourself. Upon her passing, over 3,500 pieces were donated to Brazil where the Carmen Miranda Museum was founded in Rio de Janeiro.

SLEEP The Dresser Palmer House

We love the coziness of bed and breakfasts when we travel and Savannah's historic Dresser Palmer House did not disappoint. Centrally located a few short blocks from Forsyth Park, we immediately fell in love with the inn's colorful interior and old world charm. Breakfast each morning was full of decadent Southern fare and the evening cocktail hour made for the perfect time to unwind from a busy day of sightseeing. Be sure to enjoy the back patio covered in cascading wisteria!

EAT & DRINK The Public Kitchen & Bar

This centrally located spot is great for lunch, dinner, or cocktails. We loved the modern interior and are still dreaming about our decadent lunch— ham and brie melt with spinach and granny smith apples. (Photo: Top left)

Local 11 Ten

This great dinner spot one block south of Forsyth Park is housed in a restored 1950s-era bank. The menu brims with local and seasonal ingredients, including fresh seafood caught from the nearby coast. Be sure to order a Pimm's Cup! (Photo: Top right)

Leopold's Ice Cream

If you're craving a cold treat head over to Leopold's for the best ice cream in town. We loved their Girl Scouts inspired flavor, "thin mints & cream." matchbook

EAT & DRINK Back in the Day Bakery

If you share our sweet tooth don't miss this darling bake shop by husband and wife duo Griff and Cheryl Day. Their cookbook is famous and after a few bites of cupcake, we understood why. (Photo: Top right)

The Olde Pink House

A Savannah institution, this gorgeous eighteenth-century mansion houses one of the city's most sophisticated dining experiences. Soak up the lovely interiors while enjoying their signature dish— crispy scored flounder with apricot shallot sauce, creamy grits, and collards. (Photo: below right)

Mrs. Wilke's Dining Room

If you're in search of a home-cooked Southern meal, make a beeline to this cozy spot. A line gathers each morning well before it opens at eleven o'clock with patrons eager to feast on Mrs. Wilke's famous platters of fried chicken, cornbread, sweet potato soufflé, and so much more. Arrive hungry and ready to indulge—you won't be disappointed! (Photo: Next page, below right)

THE SUITE LIFE PHOTOGRAPHY BY NADIA MELI

WHEN JENNIFER DIEDERICH'S CHEERY INSTAGRAM FEED LIT UP OUR IPHONE, WE KNEW WE'D FOUND A KINDRED SPIRIT.

JUST MARRIED

JA MI EDDINGTON

& DENNIS REMKE

THE LOCATION... Nellcôte, a

European-inspired eatery in downtown Chicago with fabulous decor. It's named for the villa in which The Rolling Stones recorded Exile on Main St. WE MET... At work. I picked

up some work from my colleague who was out sick and one deliverable was for Denny. I hand delivered it to him a few floors down. When we met in person, time stopped! THE PROPOSAL... Every fall we

go to the same orchard to pick apples, raspberries, and peppers. We had more than enough produce to take home, but Denny insisted I climb into a tree to get one last arm full of apples. When I turned around to hand them to him, he was holding out the ring. Needless to say, I dropped the apples. Was so simple and elegant, straight off the rack at J.Crew. I loved everything about it!

into a heart and sewn on the square train. IT FELT VERY "US" BECAUSE‌ We

kept it small and had a morning ceremony followed by brunch. Also, it was important for me to honor my grandparents as they were such an exemplary couple. To do so, we planned our wedding to coincide with what would have been their sixty-second anniversary. We will forever get to share it with them! WE HONEYMOONED IN‌Maine! We spent ten days in a few different towns along the coast, relaxing, eating lobster, and lounging at B&Bs. It was magic! We loved it so much we are spending our first anniversary back there and hope to make it an annual trip.
