Today's Obsessions

Wednesday, October 14, 2009

Here's what I'm loving today:

A Good Tailor. A good tailor is always on my favorites list. I spent my lunch hour today at my tailor and I just have to say that she is fabulous. She and her husband work together and they both do a wonderful job. Today I picked up a pair of jeans and dropped off about five more things! I had the jeans done with a California hem and you would never know they weren’t originally that length.

I’m petite and have a really difficult time finding clothes that fit me properly. Although J. Crew, LOFT, and Banana have pretty good petite stuff, I don’t like being limited to the petite section. I end up having to get just about everything I buy altered and I definitely think it’s the way to go.

Vintage-Inspired Jewelry. I love making jewelry and my recent obsession for fall has been finding vintage pieces for inspiration and creating around them. Etsy.com has some really great vintage jewelry finds and also some really great handmade jewelry. I found the necklace I’ll be wearing for my wedding on etsy. Here’s one of my favorite necklaces I’ve made this fall. I found the pin at a little vintage store in town and designed the bead pattern around it.





I also found this pretty purple ring!

  1. I agree with you about the tailor....I refuse to take my clothes to anyone but my lady. She's quick, cheap, and does beautiful work...it doesn't get much better than that.

    As you know from my blog, I love vintage and vintage inspired jewelry. It gives such a classic and unique finish to outfits.

    By the way, you're blog's adorable, I'm a definitely a follower now.
