I just found this cool website called print all over me. You can get an image or print put on pretty much anything : a curtain, sweat shirt, a jumpsuit, or my favorite, a bean bag chair. Check it out here. Do you need to make a tardis jumpsuit? Here is your opportunity! I also like everything as is though. The possibilities are endless!
Pip-Squeak Chapeau might just be my favorite brand & I'm so happy to begin having the line in the shop. All their pieces are well made and are hand sewn and dyed in Brooklyn. This is the first shipment I've gotten where I actually wanted every single piece, so please keep me from keeping any of them! My favorite is the Raw Linen Sugar Coat, which looks great paired with the Glitter Dots Boyshirt and and Skinny Pants. I had actually purchased the Truffle Dress in Black (short sleeves) over the summer, and was happy they were making a long sleeve version for winter. You would think the sleeves would slide down, but they stay in place making for a really nice neckline. It kind of reminds me of something from the renaissance, but with a modern twist.
"That one?" said Fenchurch, pointing, rather puzzled, at a blue plaque with some instructions written on it.
"Yes. They are the words that finally turned me into the hermit I have now become. It was quite sudden. I saw them, and I knew what I had to do."
The sign read:
"Hold stick near center of its length. Moisten pointed end in mouth. Insert in tooth space, blunt end next to gum. Use gentle in-out motion."
"It seemed to me," said Wonko the Sane, "that any civilization that had so far lost its head as to need to include a set of detailed instructions for use in a package of toothpicks, was no longer a civilization in which I could live and stay sane."
I had started writing last week about how I felt. It was too detailed. Sometimes Douglas Adams does a better job at expressing me than I can.
update: Eeek! Sorry I didn't mean to worry anyone. If you aren't familiar with Douglas Adams his books are incredibly sarcastic and funny. Taken out of context, this might have sounded more dramatic then I meant when I was trying to be funny. Here, I'll give a little more context, incase you feel like reading So Long and Thanks for all the Fish:
The two main characters, Arthur and Fenchurch, are trying to figure out why all the dolphins have disappeared from Earth. They believe Wonko the Sane might have the answer, so they visit him in California, where Wonko has decided to build an asylum to house the Earth in, essentially it's an inside out building - kind of abstract. What finally drove him to do this is when he read the instructions on a packet of toothpicks - only then did he realize how crazy the world had become.
I have always found this hilarious, and true. I often have to give directions as such, or else things will go horribly wrong.
Is it sad that this is all I want to wear this season? I seem to be going through an all black phase again - except the the heather acorn version of these pants is calling my name. I've never gotten any of the cashmere items from j crew, I'm wondering how they hold up? I wish they had more of them in store, most everything seems to be online only. I figured if I could snag a few pieces with a coupon code and the cost wouldn't be quite as daunting.
I just had an eye check up on Tuesday and have now been in remission from Uveitis for two years! The blind spots I already have are permanent and don't go away but I have no new active lesions in my retinas.
I'm going to try to make a playlist once a month. If you're interested, you can find it below. Have I even mentioned I have a secret desire to be a DJ? In an alternate universe I am an underwater archaeologist and DJ at night.
