It's Mine All Mine All Mine Mine Mine!

I found this beauty at the bottom of a pile while hunting at the Italian flea markets yesterday! It's such a great mix of grey leather and grey suede. I just had to have this one for myself, it's whatcha call a keeper. Don't you think it has a slight medieval feel about it?

Hummmm... What To Wear For New Years?

I know it's going to be 2010 but I might just be wearing something from 1975 and drinking something from 1963. The dress I choose must be sparkley, fun, and of course, unique. I have narrowed it down to these beauties. Feel free to express your favorite.

I Heart Christmas Sweaters!

I love Christmas sweaters. The pretty ones, the ulgy ones, and the really really ulgy ones. Vintage sweaters are the best because they have been worn with love in good spirits and come with all that good karma. These are some of my favorites from Etsy. Check 'em out then, send my a pic of your favorite winter themed sweater. The more outragous the better! Merry Christmas to all of my friends and followers!

Blythe Fans Will Dig This

There are so many Blythe doll fans on Etsy, as well as shops that sell them and make clothes for them. I have even read a few threads on Blythe in the forems. So when I saw this article in this weeks La Repubblica della Donne, an Italian magazine that comes with the newspaper on weekends, I thought I would share. In this article Blythe is modeling various Italian fashions around Montmartre, Paris. Enjoy all you Blythe fans!

My Obsession With the Costumes of Cheri

You must see the movie Cheri not just because Michelle Pfeiffer is stunning, not because Rupert Friend is a hottie in period clothing, but because the Parisian 1920's costumes by Consolata Boyle are the stuff dreams are made of. The story premise is Pfeiffer is an older courtesan who takes a younger man under her wing to teach him the ways of love. Watch the clip below and you will be hooked too.

Wearing Your Paint By Numbers

Think about it, what if you could color a dress to match any handbag or pair of shoes you have perfectly. Fashion designer Berber Soepboer and graphic designer Michiel Schuurmen have designed a dress that you color in yourself using a verity of textile markers that come with. It comes in 4 sizes small to x-large and is priced at 250 Euros.
It's a perfect party dress and if you have ever worried that someone else might be wearing the same dress to a party, this number could be the answer to your worries. Even if someone else was wearing this one, it still would be completely different and it does make a great conversation piece.

Black and White

Black and white is my favorite color combo. It's classic and never goes out of style. I can't get enough of it. So here is my black and white shop update.
