European Adventure Over

Thanks Germany, it's been great. Your Glühwein is amazing, had to leave before I became an alcoholic addicted to Christmas wine. Hope you guys wish us and one very reluctant traveler a good journey. See you on the other side.....

Busy Packing and Being Inspired

Only 3 days left before the big intercontinental move and only 2 days to pack. I've been asked to "please step away from the sewing machine", so while I am in the midst of my packing frenzy, here are some images that have been inspiring me....

The Fashion Super Diety Grand Wizard Now Creates Money

I don't care if it's in Euros and I am moving back to the US in (gasp! 4 days), I am still paying for everything I buy with Chanel coins. People are just going to have to accept them, they are authentic Chanel....

Shop Update: The Rivington Dress Etc...

Today at 6pm (est, 3 west coast time) I will have the following dresses in my Etsy shop...

I wanted to do a bustier dress for winter because I think they are really versatile and perfect for layering and so many things can be worn both underneath and over each one. I made two versions of this dress. One, more structured version is kind of a party dress and the other version for everyday.

Rivington Dress

Quality: 3, one in each of the following sizes.
Small (Bust 32.5", Waist 26")
Medium (Bust 34", Waist 28")
Large (Bust 36", Waist 29")

Fabric: 50% Cotton, 50% Silk.
Color: Steel Grey

The Rivington Dress

Quality: 4, one in each of the following sizes.
Extra Small (Bust 31.5", Waist 25")
Small (Bust 32.5", Waist 26")
Medium (Bust 34", Waist 28")
Large (Bust 36", Waist 29")

Length of skirt from waistband: 17.5"
Fabric: 100% Cotton. This fabric is a heavyweight cotton, it's quite soft and it has some nice movement to it.
Color: Black with a green & white ticking stripe pattern.

...And finally I have 1 Crosby Dress, it is a different fabric than the lookbook photo, this one is a grey, lightweight wool with black accents (pictured here on the right).

The navy blue version will be in my shop in a couple of weeks.

Quantity: 1
Size: Large (Bust 36", Waist 29")
Length of skirt from waistband: 15.5"
Sleeve length: 14.5"

Photography and styling: Alyson Graves.

Model: Leslie Butler.

Guess Who?

Vain & Vapid Winter 08/9 Pt.1

Rivington Dress

Harrison Skirt

Crosby Dress

Photography & styling: Alyson Graves of Unruly Things.
Model: Leslie Butler.

As promised, the first round of my F/W photos are finally here, beautifully shot and styled by Alyson of Unruly Things. It was really fun to collaborate with her and somehow we managed to put this together even though we were physically half a world apart. I can honestly say that both she and Leslie did an amazing job and I am really happy with the way the photos came out. Who knew it would all start with 1 custom made Jimmy Dress.....

Check out Leslie's Blog & Flickr....
and Alyson's shop here....

As for me, my shop will be updated tomorrow with the Rivington dresses....

Françoise Hardy Appreciation Day

She's totally got that rock chic thing down to a science, she's got the best bangs (or fringe if you're British), she plays her own instruments and she's inspired everyone from Mick Jagger to Nicolas Ghesquière to Kim Gordon to meeeee. Happy Françoise Hardy Appreciation Day....
