Kate Egan’s Eight Favorite Things
Rittenhouse jewelry shop Egan Day is pure elegance, so it’s no surprise that its owner lives in equally inspiring style. Here, her favorite things, from the quirky to the covetable.
“Babysitting Kevin Bunny tees from my friend Alex’s ‘five-and-dime’ on Sansom Street are the perfect presents for my niece and nephew. Plus, Alex is a hoot, and he serves sangria at the shop on Thursday evenings in the summer.” $28 at Stadler-Kahn, Philadelphia.
“My friend Hannah Cohen just came out with her debut album, Child Bride. Her song ‘The Crying Game’ is hauntingly beautiful.” $21.87 at Amazon.com.
“Writer Matthea Harvey is one of my most favorite people in the world. Her book Cecil the Pet Glacier is the perfect kind of children’s book—funny, touching, and great for adults, too. I saw a first draft of this, and I’m so excited that it’s arriving in August.” $17.99 at Joseph Fox, Philadelphia.
“My Chantecaille coral makeup compact. The spring/summer colors make me look like I’m getting enough sleep and eating right.” $79 at Rescue Rittenhouse, Philadelphia.
“BDDW’s captain’s mirror, made by hand right here in Philadelphia. It’s my present to myself for the completion of our house renovation—which hasn’t started yet, which is why I need a present.” From $1,200 at BDDW Showroom, New York.
“Rolling Rock stone quarry. The nice folks there will drive you to each pile of rocks so you can hand-select pieces for your garden or patio or—if you’re like me—get a slab of stone just because it’s snazzy.” Rolling Rock Building Stone, Boyertown.
