SNOW DAY

This weekend brought our first snow of the season, so we ran outside and stood in it. Icy blue camouflage that is my Canadian tuxedo. Details below.

VINTAGE DREAMS COME TRUE

The Manhattan Vintage Show is here again - and we scored epic pieces.

No matter what you're into, there's something for everyone. Vintage Chanel, the perfect faded vintage Levi's. Birkins? Yep. Ostrich feathers? Of course. Rhinestones? Mmmhmmmm... You get the idea. 

Catch the final day of the show tomorrow from 11AM - 6PM at the Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 W. 18th Street (between 6th & 7th Avenues).

CRAVINGS: KIMONOS

On a recent trip west, I found something I didn't know I was looking for, exactly.

While visiting the city of Seattle, just down the street from the Seattle Art Museum, I came across a shop. In the window? Scores of vintage kimonos, including this solid silk gem.

Upon picking it up, I knew it was leaving with me. The weight of the garment is something entirely rare in today's fast fashion world.

THE ULTIMATE VINTAGE DENIM JACKET

Thank you, Etsy.

Vintage Levi's denim jacket found on Etsy. Artwork pictured left by Claire Oswalt.

After countless hours scouring the interwebs, I stumbled upon this artfully shredded number and the search was over. The collar is frayed and separated. The elbows gently worn to a fray. The cuffs turned to a soft cotton fringe. In short, it's perfect. Complete with the character of a well-traveled suitcase, it adds a layer of texture not accomplished with out time and love.
