Hello and and welcome again to our Thursday Poll!
Last week we voted on short skirts, and chose Bindi’s Studded Skirt as our current favorite!
This week I want to ask you about tunics (and dresses that can sort of double as tunics) since I have been hoping to add a few more to my wardrobe shortly! Check out of few of the ones we currently have in our collection below.
First the Santa Cruz River Tunic is shown below in grey.

Next is our 60 Miles North Dress in eggplant.

Below see the Bon Sai Pin Tuck Dress in sage!

Next is our Reid Park Lace Up Top in bark.

Which one do you like best?

I would wear any of them, of course, but the first two look most like "me."
Kristina -Mar 26, 2009, 3:44PM
Wow! I actually really love them all! But I don't think the first one would look good on me lol

One of our former design team employees, Michelle, recently dug up our Art Director Doub’s glove project from many years ago, and posted it on her blog! You can see it above, it’s pretty fabulous – I couldn’t resist sharing it with you guys as well!
Here’s a little note from Doub about where the inspiration for this project came from:
Well what became fascinating for me when I started the glove project was how elaborately detailed each pair of gloves were. And with each glove it’s delicate little details really dictated each design. I had become obsessed with gloves and was scouring the city for them mainly for the strange need to cut one of the pair up into a silhouette. I still have such an appreciation for the amazing craftsmanship and design of gloves.
It really is a very inspiring project! And speaking of inspiration, our friend Michelle’s blog is called Inspiration Resource, and aptly so! You should definitely check it out if you feel so inclined…

These are so cute and interesting, did Doub sew up the little garments?

crayon rings!

I seriously need a set of these crayon rings by Timothy Liles! How fun are these, for kids and adults alike?! If I wore them anywhere I’d probably draw on everything I walked by though… You can get yourself a set at The Future Perfect.

I am totally amazed by this piece by Lynette Andreasen! She found an antique silver platter and embroidered an outline of an old image of her father’s family onto it. When I first saw the top picture, I thought it was embroidered leather and that it was very cool – so you can imagine my reaction when I found it was a silver platter – even cooler! Check out Lynette’s pictures too; she has an interesting little artist’s statement there.

wow. Thanks again, FP girl. You keep on bringin' it. Love, Chloe C.

I am in love with these exquisite dainty little underthings by Stumpet & Pink. They’re too delicate for me though, I would definitely inadvertently rip seams and tear them up if I wore any! They are so so pretty to look at though. What do you guys think?

Very pretty. Love the ruffled black underwear!

I LOVE these. They are so delicate and beautiful...I do agree they don't look too durable but they are also not for everyday wear...still pretty little things...

salt art

Motoi Yamamoto creates these amazing designs with loose salt, or salt baked into bricks for large structures. He started using salt as his only medium when his sister passed away from brain cancer twelve years ago, and he looks at his labyrinth-esque art as at once futile yet necessary to his healing. It’s also interesting to note that in Japanese culture salt is often considered a symbol of purity.
See a nice interview with Motoi here.

I've a few days I've this blog bookmarked as a favorite site. A little funny, because even kilak weeks ago about this forum I said before, but no blog you will not find among my esteemed pages. Testifying to the extraordinary discussion that blogs are always niewartosciowym Internet junk, on which there is no reliable knowledge, or objectivity. Im not talking now in regards to a specific address here, but all is discussing blogs in the form of handbooks, diaries, and information services there is always a lot of unreliable knowledge and unverified information, which translates into my long-standing aversion to these sites. However, its unwillingness to revise its humility, yesterday I searched the web resources in the search for specific knowledge. A bit of the case visited several blogs, because although subject matter often appears inside the network, but this subject rather superficially presented. Kidy found this blog, I was more than surprised. As it turns out the issue presented here is very extensive. No doubt that when it comes to content is the better service available today in the Polish network. Not only that even scientific, popular, and service breaks aren't able to match this portal. To date not succeeded, and also contact mcdougal of all the major publications. But I am hoping it succeeds it will email my email and failed to disappoint me, being a faithful reader for the future and will continually grow your blog. Because they sites are thin on a lawn in the Polish Internet. Why did I write this all? All through my character, I don't like making mistakes, however , if is to admit them. Such is the situation here. Of course, one swallow does not make (they say), but on such basis as this blog Im ready to admit that kind of web pages can be very valuable, kind and most importantly interesting.

These are awesome! This guy is so talented!

I love this quote from Alex Wang. Do you have any tricks to making your t-shirts or anything else (jeans, boots, etc) super comfy and worn looking? I like to wash new t-shirts, and stretch out the neck a bit. How about you???

I thought this was the oddest thing I did, but I totally do this! Usually on Thursday nights so I'm ready for casual Friday at work. I still feel so comfy and the bad thing is I wish I was still in bed sleeping! Thanks for sharing this quote :)!

on those days that I feel like not combing my hair I enjoy the secret of walking around in a shirt I slept in.
