It's not often that I fall in love with a fashion brand this much... but VPL definitely does it for me, right now. The store in the lower part of SOHO is filled with vintage gymnast's gear and creative fixtures. Luckily for me, there was a spring sale today, so I snagged up a few things. The line's designer Victoria Bartlett definitely has a vision, and my attention. Click here to watch an interview of her.

Yup, the 90's

Yup, I am a child of the 90's. Good or bad, certain reminders have something about them that trigger... oh you know that funny nostalgia. I remember wanting an X-girl a-line dress so badly! I think I want to dye my hair some unnatural color again...

Oh Annie,

It's a little disorientating to work in the fashion industry because it's always thinking ahead... or at least trying to (though sometimes I feel like I'm going backwards). I forget what year it is. Right now in my mind it's Spring 2012, yikes! Finding inspiration might be the most challenging thing I have to do, which is sort of why I started this blog, to give myself a kick in the pants to keep my brain going. And at times, I have to remind myself to just have fun with it and not take myself so seriously. Which is why I was thrilled to discover ANNIE LARSON'S online shop. I especially love her TEXTURE work.

Idea fest

So, I did make it to the Festival of Ideas but really I was more inspired to hang out with friends, have a few drinks, and enjoy the Saturday.  Here are some pics to sum up my particular run through. I found that there were much much better photos on the Gothamist, than the ones I took...

Some links of exhibitors and vendors to note:
*Bus Roots
*Agata Olek
*Brooklyn Soda Works
*Ari Tabei
*Space Buster

Got an idea?

Today I'm headed to the Festival of Ideas. It started a few days ago, and the list of exhibitors, seminars, and vendors is pretty intense. The freakish organizer in me wanted to make a check next to each item I am interested in... but I realized very quickly that I should just pick a day and throw myself in it. I will definitely post the ideas that get me (the most) excited. Would love to see your thoughts and ideas in the comments! Comment here on my blog page.

If you are in NYC, hope to run into you! Happy Saturday!

Road trippin'

It must be that time of the year when people are itching for a road trip, no? I know I'm planning mine right now... Doesn't it seem like the idea of a road trip is more glamorous than it actually is? Take these photos for instance...

These make me want to throw some clothes in a bag and hit the road!
