Yes, this is still the same blog... just did a little make-over... less eye clutter the better right now.

paper fashion

Now this isn't exactly fashion, but it's more about patterns... French Paper is a paper mill, yes. I found this company (via design*sponge) and because it's a Michigan company, I got really happy and couldn't resist posting about it. It's family owned and operated, not to mention, everything runs on hydroelectric power. Talk about reshaping an industry...

Also, a designer who uses this paper mill has lovely prints available on etsy here. I wish this was fabric so I could recover my couch in it!


Knit Picks

This Saturday, November 3, we are having a Purl Jam Knitting Circle in the Fish House! Come at 8:00 PM and bring needles or crochet hooks if you have them... if you don't, it's okay.

This site is for inspiration.


the milky way

Meg from Faking Good Breeding has a thoughtful post on the lack of diversity in the modeling world titled Whitewashed Runways. This is so interesting in light of the recent Vogue India release - the first cover? Gemma Ward (white and blonde) front-and-center flanked by two Indian models.


Catapult magazine

The newest issue of the online magazine Catapult is all about "Dressing Up". There are some great resources for sparking your thoughts on how fashion interacts with our culture and the decisions we make, etc. Every issue of Catapult is great anyways, so if you are not a member yet - I highly recommend joining!!

I'm such a coat person... more than shoes, more than bags. These are some favorites (via topshop)


Sock Dreams - Company of the week

Sock Dreams is the company of the week and you will LOVE what you get from them. The site sells a variety of labels for socks, leg-warmers, ARM warmers (yes, they exist), and tights/leggings, and all of them are sweatshop free sources with a lot from the U.S.
