Blake Lively has a new website called Preserve, and it's everything: part lifestyle, part shopping, and all about the types of small-batch goods that we live for in San Francisco. As Vogue explains, "[Lively] is, in essence, using all the modern-day digital tricks of the trade to shine a light on—to preserve—all those finer, simpler things in American life that are in danger of getting touch-screened into extinction, trampled on by the medium itself."
We were already pumped for the infinitely-chic Lively to start curating pretty trinkets à la Gwyneth and Martha, but we were thrilled to discover that San Francisco's own Amour Vert made her cut of must-buys. Blake's rec? This chevron-patterned silk midi skirt for $164. Though it's only available in XS on Preserve, you can find it on Amour Vert's site in additional sizes. If you love the style, but aren't as keen on the print, staffers at the eco-friendly company's Hayes Valley outpost tell us that they have the palm print version in stock.
