A few fun things to keep you occupied while I unpack:
+I kinda sorta of love these tile-print J. Crew shorts, via Leith. I especially love them with the stripey top and shiny flats.
+Tricia did an absolutely phenomenal dye job on some crocheted vintage pieces. Seriously, I'm in awe. It's also opened up a whole new world of vintage reconstruction for me, though I suspect I'd end up with more dye on me (and on the floor, and on things that didn't need to be dyed) than the item I'm dyeing. Still, tempting…
+Gala is stockpiling tips on how to score the best vintage finds. Also: fabulous purple hair!
+Mizutamago sewed together an *adorable* Built by Wendy dress, which has me desperately coveting a couple of the Built by Wendy Simplicity patterns. Perhaps if I start on the little jacket now, I might be finished by fall?
+I'm hoping the Beloved Homes Ikea decorating book might have made it to my friendly neighborhood Ikea by now. Anyone spotted it yet?
+These are, without a doubt, some of the coolest rock concert posters ever. Seriously great art. Is it wrong that I really want the Decemberists poster (fourth row down, trees and bike), when I don't really know any Decemberists songs?
+Finally, if you haven't gotten your hands on the new fashion-themed ReadyMag magazine yet, then I highly recommend (I tracked mine down at Kinokuniya). There are tons of really fantastic fashion and decor projects in there, including a fun pillow tutorial by Lisa Congdon that I am totally going to try. Eventually. (After that Built by Wendy jacket. So, likely, mid-fall.)
