october flight

I'll be heading home later this month to meet my new nephew and see the rest of my family for my birthday. Seeing these paper planes made me even more excited for the trip.

I just ran across this shop on Etsy that just started selling yesterday, and fell instantly in love with the paper plane reconstructions they have for sale at very reasonable prices. Be sure to pick one up at panchabheda.


I found myself doing quite a bit of knitting today--it's the perfect season to whip up loads of scarves and mittens, and something about fall just makes me feel very domestic and at-home. I ran off to get tons of new fall colors, many of which will be coming to the shop in the coming weeks.

Do you ever feel like an extra in your own life?

Do you really need another reason to adore Miranda July? Check out her photo shoot with Vice, where she places the extra in classic films front and center via beautiful reenactments:

Dita Parlo: The Look

We watched L'Atalante last night, as we were fortunate enough to snag a DVD copy before New Yorker Films went out of business.

I adore the scene where Dita Parlo is eagerly listening to a fashion news broadcast, which is discussing the latest styles including the importance of a beret with the left side of the brim turned upwards .

Get her look:

Coming Tomorrow

Coming to the shop tomorrow:

In Love

I got to catch a peek (not in person--I wish!) at Willow's 2010 collection, and it's completely breathtaking:

Ethereal amazingness. Not to mention the killer shoes. In love!

Sunday Sweetness

Here's what's coming to the shop tomorrow:

I'm particularly in love with the last piece--a 1950's cream shift dress with pockets. It really reminds me of a dress I've seen in a movie somewhere, but I can't remember where I've seen it before.

It's been too long!

I've been very busy and away from the blog for far too long. Much more coming soon, including new shop updates.
