Warm and Cozy Politics. The Sweaters of Lisa Anne Auerbach.

When I found out our local museum was featuring the work of Lisa Anne Auerbach, I couldn't wait to make a visit. This fierce knitter certainly has a knack for making a strong (and shocking to some) fashion statement. . . with warm and cozy slogan sweaters! I love the irony. Each sweater also had a matching skirt. Hope you enjoy these snapshots I took of a few of her creations. Disclaimer: These aren't necessarily my political views, however this gal gets points in my book just for being so creatively brave.

Thoughts? Have a favorite? Least favorite?

Color Shift Shop Update

I'm so happy to start bringing fall colors into the shop. A few days ago my friend and I took a country drive and we saw some leaves already beginning to change color. Fall is one of my favorite times of the year in the mitten, and not just for the cooler weather and pretty earth tones, but also because (between you and me) I can't wait to have that first sip of fresh apple cider at my favorite local cider mill. Donuts on the side too, thank you! ;) Mmmm!

Doesn't this photo just make you thirsty already?

Wednesday Wishlist, Natural Born Bohemian

In light of Woodstock's recent 40th anniversary, I wanted to celebrate the spirit of bohemian style. While at the library recently, I stumbled upon this picture-packed colorful book titled HIPPIE by Barry Miles. It had a special section just for the famous musical festival we've all come to know as one of the most unforgettable moments in music history.

Here are a few images from the book to inspire you, as well as some amazing Etsy finds that capture this free-spirit essence so well. Enjoy!

Free your inner Hippie with these beautiful bohemian finds on Etsy!







Happy Wednesday!

For Marilyn with love from Dolce & Gabbana

When we think of the "Marilyn Dress" we usually visualize something like the dress below. The image of the white halter dress with the plunging neckline and flirtatious flowing skirt instantly comes to mind.

This one currently for sale by timelesstyles on Etsy.

Though I love the classic version of the dress, as you all know I'm CRAZY about prints and recently discovered in V magazine a new take on the "Marilyn Dress" by Dolce & Gabbana. They've gone and put this iconic bombshell's face on several items from their Fall/Winter 2009 line, including: Mini skirts, silky tops & all kinds of dress shapes. Isn't it exciting?

And, I know it's not time for featuring my daily novelty print item, but I wanted to share this cute little mini dress I found on Etsy for sale by RetroWear.

Who doesn't love Marilyn Monroe?
She's now even more unforgettable with these beautiful clothes!
Go ahead, be inspired. xo
