Introducing:: Wilhelm’s Daughters!

Well like I have mentioned in posts past, we will be going through some changes on this blog. About a year ago, Katie and I decided to take this to the next level and update our look and identity. We thought long and hard about all the possible names, logos, colors, styles. We finally settled on our new name: Wilhelm’s Daughters.

It all stems from our great great grandfather Wilhelm Kuhne who came to America from Germany with his Swiss sweetheart, O’Tilly Wettstein. They ended up in Illinois with Wilhelm working as a dressmaker in downtown Chicago. The creativity was passed down from generation to generation, filling our family tree with photographers, painters, seamstresses, and even a toy designer. You could say that creativity is in our blood. As Katie Jean Designs makes it’s move to Brooklyn, New York, we introduce our new site (coming soon) where we, Wilhelm’s Daughters, share our loves, our style, and anything else we feel like sharing with you all! You can follow our adventures in Phoenix and Brooklyn, with our favorite local spots, new favorite trends, or finds, and everything in between!

Our site is not quite ready to launch, but we will of course let all you beautiful people know as soon as it’s ready for you to see! Hope you are enjoying your summer!!

Friendship Friday: Jenny Kang

Friday is here again, and this week we have an amazing friend to feature! Jenny Kang is the fashion editor of New York Magazine. She used to work for Lucky Magazine as well as AOL/Huffington Post. I know that if I worked/lived in New York (someday!) I would find her and become best friends with her. Not in a stalkerish way at all. 😉

Her style has been described as Pop-Prep, and I love the easy-going goes mod feeling she’s got going on. Her style is so stinking cute! I also found an awesome inside interview showcasing her apartment. Love love!  All of the photos I found were from articles found on Refinery 29.

This makes me really want a huge pair of wooden scissors to play with 😉

Again, the blazer is great! And I love the simplicity paired with the striped zig-zag rug!
