Alison Carroll is no stranger to this site. You might remember her style story here. We’ve always been inspired by her approach to life so we asked to come back and talk about her line, Wonder Valley and the beauty rituals that inspired it.
Most of us are not strangers to the elegance that is Circumference—the plant-powered skincare brand founded in 2018 by Jina Kim and her husband, Chris. The sleek, minimal packaging and sophisticated aesthetic made us into fans before we even tried the products. And then we tried them, and there was no turning back. Jina is a person of substance, warmth and purity—all qualities that she brings to Circumference, and to her style both in how she dresses and in her home. Meet Jina!
It’s hard to pinpoint exactly when my love of the bodysuit began. Yet, I can determine it was sometime in my childhood. At around aged seven I began various genres of dance classes; including ballet. Despite my love of each class and having a place to channel my creative energy by moving so freely, all I remember of them is how beautiful I felt moving in what I was wearing. Per typical dance outfits; I had my hair firmly combed back with water and hairspray, a scrunchie, a dusky rose bodysuit and my pink ballet slippers.
