trend: wild

So here's Dwight from 'The Office' US.
In ONE visit to the thrift store a few weeks ago, I found a bunch of animal (especially wolf) tshirts. I wonder if they all belonged to the same person? It's funny how trends work.
Today, I'm flipping through a special Fall/Winter 2011 Harper's Bazaar issue and see more 'wild' animals.
And then you'll see all the dresses I made from this stack. (These have all been purchased.)
Happy hunting [t-shirts] !

stella neptune in Chicago!

Met my gal Eva of Stella Neptune at Randolph Street Market!

She upcycles cashmere!

Living in Chicago, cashmere is ideal all Winter since it's so warm and lightweight. I was SO excited to find cool, upcycled cashmere. I own the 'living the dream' print and wear it all the time!



I couldn't decide between the 'buck' and the clown. Still thinking about the clown, but I got this one below :D

Eva also makes these upcycled cashmere patches you can simply iron over holes in your sweaters. I applied a few to the dress you see at the bottom. (Dress not for sale.)
My boyfriend chose the bandaid ones!

Check them out here:

nyc + new silkscreen: black flowers

My friend Dave always knows the AWESOME spots to check out.
Thanks for taking me to this AMAZING store filled with vintage textiles!!!! Sheets, curtains, tablecloths, lace, flags, quilts....I don't even want to tell you where it is.
It will make a collector out of you. Let's hope these fabrics are being sewn into some great pieces!

Then we drank some, ate A LOT. Here's a few stops:

I was also ambitious enough to silkscreen the morning before we left, just so I had a fresh print to come home to.... I'm back!
