Etsy Update: Wooden Necklaces


I love the 70s art teacher vibe of these chunky wooden necklaces.  All you really need is a silk blouse and a statement necklace and you're ready to go.  Am I right? All of these are available in the Etsy shop...

Etsy Update: Farmer's Market Totes


I have one of these woven market totes and it's surprising how often it comes in handy.  I carry it with me most everywhere and it often comes home filled with fresh fruits and veggies from the farmer's market, vintage finds from the thrift store or odds and ends from the flea market.  Do you have one?  If not, here's your chance!  All of these are now available in the Etsy shop...

Etsy Update: Winter Boots


Today's Etsy shop additions include these five pairs of winter boots.  My boot collection is overflowing so some of these are from my closet!  I hate to see them go but it's time to find some new homes for some old favorites.  All available in the Etsy shop now...


Sessun Autumn / Winter

Sessùn Video Fall 2013 from jas000 on Vimeo.

Last week I binge watched Freaks and Geeks for the first time on Netflix.  I'd always heard people raving about the show but had never seen an episode.  Now that I've watched all 18 I'm definitely on the Freaks and Geeks bandwagon.  I love me some Bill Haverchuck.  Throughout the series, most of the girls can be found wearing really great late 70s / early 80s knits.  You know, the colorful sweaters and belted cardigans that were popular at the time. I'm definitely keeping my eye out for more knit pieces as the weather cools. 

I just found this beautifully shot, serene video featuring the Autumn/Winter collection from Sessun.  The collection has a little bit of that early 80s vibe and so many great knit pieces in it.  Yes, I love the knit pieces but the one thing I definitely have my eye on, hoping for a sale price, is this Lumberjack Coat.  I can't get over that print.  Oh, and I'd take a pair of these boots too!


Etsy Update: Autumn Dresses


I've just updated the Etsy shop with a dozen autumn worthy dresses.  All available now!

Morgan Carper Fall 2013


As the nights grow cooler one by one, I find myself wrapped up under blanket on the couch.  Why not just throw the blanket over my shoulders when I leave the house?  If only I could and still look as good as this cape from Morgan Carper fall collection!  I suppose if I feel like dressing up as an extra from The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, this will be my go-to collection.  And I mean that in the best way possible. 


Etsy Update: Cool Nights, Cozy Sweaters







Osei-Duro Fall 2013


I love this time of year when the fall collections start appearing.  Even if I'm not ready to start wearing layers yet, it's so much fun to see each one revealed.  And this one?  From Osei-Duro?  SO GOOD!  The prints are exactly what I've been searching for even though I didn't know it yet.  I have the Mantel Dress from their spring collection that's been getting a lot of mileage this summer.  The only downside to loving this collection is deciding which piece to add to my closet next.  I'm hoping that yellow skirt shows up for sale soon. 


Nadinoo Play By Numbers

I am very excited to see that after a short break, Nadinoo is back with a new collection. You can always count on Nadia for lady-like silhouettes and the very best prints.  I've somehow resisted one of her bow front dresses for this long but that blue and white polka dot print is tempting me in the worst (best?) way. 


Margaret Howell A/W 2013


Today I will photograph the first collection of fall items to add to the Etsy shop.  In my mind, that means the season is changing and there's no looking back even though it's still hot out, and we have until the 22nd to make things really official.  And since my mind is in fall mode, I'm loving the new collection from Margaret Howell for the season.  The pieces are so classic and utilitarian they fall under the category of true investment pieces.  Each piece may cost a pretty penny, but think how many seasons you'd get to wear one.
