I had lots of fun flipping through this online gallery of book covers and designers! I love seeing the different versions of the same books and seeing covers I’ve never seen for books that I have read.
Have you ever bought a book based on the cover? Did the book live up to the art? Leave us a comment with the link to your favorites!
I’m loving this cover I spotted today. Maybe I’ll give it a read…
It’s poll time! Last week, I asked which slip you liked best out of three of our newer styles, and the answers came out very even, with the Tie Dye Ruffles Slip coming in first by only about 20 votes!
This week, I wanted to ask you about this really cool poncho we just came out with, the Solid Pullover Poncho. I tried one on yesterday, and I just love it! It’s about the comfiest thing ever, and it looks really cute on! As usual, I’m stuck on the colors though.
First, check out the poncho in Coral below.
Next, here it is in Grey Heather.
Below, find the poncho in Midnight.
Finally, here’s the poncho in Bark.
What do you guys think? Which color would you get?
As occasionally happens, we have a pair of unintentional twins at the home office today! Jasmine and Kristin came in wearing the same fun Free People top! Even sweeter, they are both Intimates Designers, and sit right across from one another! Cute!
Glamping, or glamorous camping, is starting to become more popular as a form of camping for people who wouldn’t ordinarily enjoy camping. There are a number of glamp-sites popping up everywhere! Pre-pitched and lavishly furnished tents, stocked ponds, and numerous other amenities are some of the features of these places. For the most part they do not have electricity or internet though – thank goodness! I think if they had internet or electricity their resemblance to camping would be pretty much gone. The New York Times has a little article about glamping here. What do you guys think? Do you want to go glamping?
Today we visit the desk of Katie, our Web Production Assistant! Among Katie’s duties are helping organize web-shoots, hiring models, and selecting pictures to go up on our website! She also has some pretty fun stuff on her desk – I should know because I have the pleasure of being her desk neighbor! She is a very good neighbor, too!
This crazy cat came from an A.C. Moore craft store! T-shirt not included…
The bear in this picture just appeared on Katie’s desk one day – she honestly has no idea where it came from! She tells us this: “I think the important things on my desk are my pictures and the little bottle of Tabasco sauce- I love Tabasco sauce, and I love small things!”
These are Katie’s two kitties, Queenie on the left, and Ghost Hoagie on the right. She found Ghost Hoagie in a pizza box in an alley when he was a kitten! They live with Katie and a turtle named Bunson, some fish, sea-monkies, a worm farm, and two hamsters!
Katie found this picture on the street when she lived in San Francisco! Check out the back of the picture below.
These are a few more of Katie’s treasured pictures – the top left picture is from when she lived in Vermont, the next one with the bridge is in San Francisco, and the bottom picture is from a beach in California. The wheels of the little cars spun in the wind!
Thanks for sharing your desk with us Katie!
Today I came across this neat little feature in the New York Times. It’s a slide show with some audio. The slide show features some nice street fashion shots by Bill Cunningham, NYT Photographer. The audio is a very interesting little blurb where Bill conjectures that fashion is going to have some really dramatic changes as a result of our current financial problems. Bill is surprisingly older, and remembers the Great Depression, so he has experience to back up his hypothesis. It’s an interesting feature, worth checking out. What do you think? Do you think fashion is going to change a lot over the coming year or two as a result of the financial crisis? What types of things do you think might change?
