Brooks Brothers & Mad Men

It always brings me such great joy to find present day designers pulling inspiration from our past, so I thought I'd share this one with you. Brooks Brothers along with costume designer Jaine Byrant have recently designed and released their limited edition Mad Men suit. Together they have created the sophistication of the 1960's look for business men in the present day. They have done so by implementing great tailoring, construction, color choice and all those necessary details that stem from the 1960's. The suit is available online at the Brooks Brothers website, and is also available in select stores. Pick this one up while you can!

Raven Denim & Hailey's Hand Me Downs

Raven Denim recently came out with their Spring 2010 look book, and as I started flipping through the pages I was overwhelmed with joy to see one of my Hailey's Hand Me Down's pieces paired with their darling denim. The piece is a 1970's plaid poncho and is absolutely darling. One of their stylists for the line purchased the poncho from Raggedy Threads Vintage Shoppe, located in the Arts District of Downtown Los Angeles, where I was selling my pieces at the time. They also mixed in lovely pieces from Raggedy Threads including vintage blouses, and handmade jewelry from Colombia. The styling done in their look book is flawless, and I am very proud that Hailey's Hand Me Downs had a very small part in the process. The look book turned out beautifully and I am extremely anxious to see the line this Spring!

Chloe: Fall 2009 Ready to Wear: Runway Show

The following photographs come from the designer Chloe, and are part of their fall 2009 ready to wear collection. I thought I'd share my favorite outfits from their runway show with you so that you could get inside my head a bit as far as new, designer fashion goes. I'm an old soul, and my heart truly belongs in vintage fashion, but it gives me great joy to see designers such as Chloe taking inspiration from our past and bringing it in to new designs in the present. Their designs always seem to give me a 1960s'/1970s' feel, and anything resembling those decades seems to bring a smile to my face. The collection captures femininity and strength, and in my opinion is absolutely beautiful.
