I’ve loved Of a Kind since they launched, perfectly curated limited-edition collections from independent clothing and accessories designers I want to own and wear nonstop.
I’ve discovered new brands through them, starting with Ace & Jig and hopefully not stopping anytime soon. Now on top of their daily editions, you can shop a full collection by Of a Kind-featured designers. No more searching all over for pieces from the hard-to-find designers they carry. Great news!
Here are a few picks from their new shop that are must haves:

I can’t wait to see which collections launch in the future!
Kolokythokeftedes (Zucchini Fritters)
Roughly grate the zucchini, put in a colander, sprinkle with salt, and leave for two hours. Press the zucchini to drain the remaining water. Add 50 kg feta, roughly grated yellow onion, chopped mint, and bread crumbs. Fold once or twice. Add 2 large eggs. Add more bread crumbs until the mixture attains a sticky, but fairly dry, texture.
Pat the mixture into patties about the size of your palm. Shallow fry in a pan with 1/4 inch of olive oil.

Places where I spent at least one night during the year:
New York, NY*
San Francisco, CA*
Big Sur, CA
North Bennington, VT* (probably the most time I’ve spent at home since I moved away. Six trips!)
Milwaukee, WI (does not technically count since I did not spend the night but that’s probably the farthest I’ve traveled and back in one day)
2012. What. A. Year. Truly bittersweet. Happy to be onto a fresh page on the calendar but kind of in awe of everything that happened in one year.
(as an aside, I realized that I used to go through my moleskine datebook/google cal to compile this, whereas now I use instagram and foursquare check-in history to piece my year together)
