Stemming from the smattering of art fields I've worked and studied in, my lust for designed order came to fruition when a summer lived in Paris brought with it the influence of fashion. Eclectic à la Mode (called EÀLM because I have a thing for acronyms and concise copy) was born as a Thesis Project in grad school, and now, almost ten years later, it's a home for the pure and frivolous enjoyment of my closet. EÀLM gives a glimpse of my personal style, offers lifestyle articles in fashion, design, and beauty, and also (as I try to remember in practice) seriously doesn't take itself too seriously.
