Did you know I taught myself how to make a .gif? you do!
this is a small series of ones from the early 60s
I especially love ones with handwritten notes on the back

Manu Manu

while browsing one of my favorite ecommerce sites, creatures of comfort, I came across these colorful geometric necklaces by a former free people acquaintance, Lauren Manoogian. I'm always pleasantly surprised to discover former free peops truely living the free life in pursuit of their own creative ventures.

Currently wearing..current/elliott

I just bought some current/elliott jeans; man-o-man are these babies soft!  I've had my eyes on them for a while, but with the $300 price tag it was a no-can-do situation.   Until I majorly scored the other day and got the "suspender boyfriends" for a mere $90.  The wash is just incredible...really; I could have slept in them.  They have the perfect boyfriend fit- slouchy with a short enough rise to wear them low or high on my hips.  
I checked out their site and died over their carnival inspired fall shoot.  Makes me want to join the traveling circus.

Falling for...

it was one of the hottest and most humid days in Philly this summer.  Ironically, we got our first shipment of fall clothing at Petulia's Folly and I'm not sure I'm ready for it. 
Though, I was sifting through my old tear sheet book, one I've had since I was a junior in high school (1999) and remembered how much I love fall coats and jackets.  I can't remember who designed some of these, or what magazines they've come from, but it would be fun to try and guess.

there are so many collages were this came from. I'll post more coats & jackets tomorrow.

CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund 2009 -Gary Graham

I've been a huge fan of Gary Graham's since i read this little blurb many years ago (2000ish?)
gary graham
That's why I was so so psyched to see that he was nominated for the CFDA/Vouge's 2009 Fashion Fund. I so hope he wins and gains the kind of recognition his talent deserves.
here are some images of his fall 2009 collection though, trust me, his deconstructivist mensweary pieces are so much more beautiful in person/fitting room.
