One of the perks of working freelance means I get to work from home, in Brooklyn. Which also means, I rarely go out into the city. But when I do, I fill my day with "city" errands and yesterday that meant fabric shopping!

Purl Soho is one of my favorite fabric stores, its a one-stop shop with beautifully curated fabrics, notions, yarns, and more. They recently combined their 2 stores into one larger store on Broome Street and boy, is it awesome! I really tried hard to go in and buy my fabric and leave but kept getting pulled in every directions by all the colors, threads, yarns. My 5 minute trip turned into a 45 minute trip. If you're ever in town and you have a crafty craving, this is the place.

On my way to Purl Soho, I walked past my favorite taco truck, Calexico. I fought every urge to buy a burrito, but after my lengthy, "hard-at-work" stop at Purl, that pollo asado burrito was calling to me. It was pretty much the highlight of my day, its the little things in life that make me happy.

And my last (re)discover of the day was found at my favorite, local store, Thistle & Clover. They're having a memorial day sale and Lisa and I had to stop by. I mean, looking doesn't hurt right? right?! Unfortunately, I found the dress I've been looking for. I've got several weddings to attend this summer and have been looking for the right one. I think I found it.... sigh. lily and jae, you guys kill me.

This new installation at Tatton Park Biennial by Kate MccGwire is absolutely breathtaking. Its so ominous yet beautiful. I love installations that changes you, your positioning, and emotion the moment you enter the space.

Bluestocking BonBons

Recently I was contacted by this awesome woman, Lagusta, who makes vegan meals and vegan chocolates. She asked me to make her a banner that she could have at her booth for food fairs for her artisan, vegan chocolates, Bluestocking BonBons. Here is the end result.

check out the adorable ladies holding up the banner, here.

I want to make one!

(this is an amazing website, vancouver art in the sixties.)
Maybe I'll follow this and one day make one in my one day backyard.

Springing into Action

By no means am I a fashion blogger, I'll leave that up to the experts like Camp Comfort and Greedy Girl. But recently I was asked by Juxtapoz (where some of you are reading this from) to put together some spring outfits, so these were my picks. I just wish my wallet had enough fluid funds for these outfits... sigh.

Day In the City Outfit.

(this is a series of scarves I started to print with my designs on them. They are dyed with all natural materials and hand printed. I hope to have these available soon, please email me if you're interested.)
