This gorgeous Edwardian dress sold on Dorothea's Closet for $650. It may very well be the most beautiful piece of clothing I've ever laid my eyes on. Not that I have anywhere to wear it...but the thought of how it would sit on my body and how I would feel inside of it is almost overwhelming. Should clothing make me this emotional?
I fell in love with these pieces while perusing spring fashion shows and can't for the life of me remember who the designer is. They're fantastic and I feel the need to recreate them or scavenge something similar. But first things first...does anyone know who fabricated these works of wearable art?
I've come across some really grand designer vintage lately! That's not to say that the internet isn't an amazing resource for designer vintage--because it is!--but these pieces are just CHOICE! If I had the money to spend, I would grab all three. That is, if they were in my size...oh, the trouble with vintage!
These jackets are PERFECT for the weather right now where I live--the Bay Area. It's been 8o degrees and sunny out all weekend with cool evenings. Perfect jacket weather. I think I may snag the 80's Avant Garde jacket. I just love it!
My Friend Jon turned me onto this amazing soda fountain, The Franklin Fountain, in Philadelphia! Even though I've never even been there it seems pretty amazing and beautiful. I wish I were in Philly so that I could become a regular!
When I was a kid there was a soda fountain right down the street from my house, a real old school one, and I would ride my bike down the few blocks and get cherry vanilla phosphates and penny candy. I miss that place. The Franklin Fountain not only seems as though it could bring back that nostalgic feeling for me, but also fill me with a joy I haven't felt in a long while. The joy of innocence.
The soda fountain in general is an ephemeral thing. Most of us don't even know what one is. But I remember--and I crave one close to home. I guess I'll have to take a trip to Philly to get that taste of the past I desire!
