last week i asked you all to send in some of your halloween costume ideas and pictures. i’ve gotten some great ideas so far, but i’m giving you more time to send ideas and pics, seeing as halloween is this weekend. so for now, here are some of the ideas from our readers and home office employees to get the creative juices flowing…
oh and the rad robot costume was one of our home office employees last year…can’t wait to see what people have in store for this year!
homemade raggedy ann and andy costumes – ann hair was done by tying red yarn to a filigree-styled headband and bowing it at top. only cost was matching socks ($5) and sailor hat ($5) – from janella
for halloween, i’m going to the beaux arts ball here in lexington (the hood internet is going to be there!) & i’m going as a g lion. i spray-painted a party dress gold today and made a gold petticoat to go underneath, as well as spray-painted a tail and ears. i have really african-inspired earrings and lots of gold makeup, and i’m going to tease my hair to no end! last year i was amelia earhart, before that laura ingalls wilder, marie antoinette and elizabeth I. loving those historical female figures! – from leslie
my boyfriend and i are going as peace and quiet: i’ll be a hippie and he’ll be a mime! – from alyssa
i’m being a star trek geek! – anonymous
wednesday adams – from employee
little bo peep and her sheep – from employee and friends
as for me…i’m going to be at a pearl jam show on halloween, so i’m taking that opportunity to dress in 90s grunge gear…my inspiration is rayanne graff from my so called life.

last week we asked which hat topped your list, and the winner is….
…the vintage tam rose beret! with 36% of the votes.
this week we’re loving layers…they’re especially great to wear under your favorite summery tops that you just can’t seem to put away yet.
which of these layering pieces are you loving the most?
the bronte lace top:

the zipper sleeve thermal:

the fishnet scoop top:

time to get creative…send us your costume ideas and photos!

i have a feeling the max costume will be big this year…
(the photo is of a max costume by christian joy, on display and for sale at space 15 twenty).

meet your maker

i love this idea…every sunday from 11am-6pm a one-of-a-kind diy market takes place at the old american can factory in brooklyn. each sunday a different “maker” creates their product live, giving visitors the chance to see how it is made. the makers specialize in a variety of crafts including jewelry, clothing, food and home décor. I definitely want to go one weekend – if any of you are attending, let us know!

That's fantastic. If you are very much engrossed with vintage stuff, you can find some there. I think that's the fun part!

copy – desert

luren, who used to work for our store display team, is curating a show at copy gallery
it’s called desert. and it will probably leave you thirsty for more…
sorry, that sounds silly.
if you’re in philly, make it part of your first friday festivities. there, that’s better…
artists from philadelphia and los angeles are creating sculptures inspired by plants and structures of the desert using commonly found materials.

copy gallery, 319 n 11th st. 3rd floor. 6-11pm.

come in and visit us!!

forgive me…this poll was created a few days early (b/c of my road trip) so i don’t have the results for last week’s poll…but, if you’re curious, you can look at edition 61 and find out what tight/sock was your favorite.
this week, we wanted to know what you thought about these shirt/dress/skirts! we love convertibility and versatility these days; hoping you do, as well. but which do you like the best?
the graphic cutout ponte dress

the color block tank dress

the flirty organza dress
flirty%20organza.jpg
or, the two timing mini dress…
