I love this silk coat. It has a waist larger than 20″. It’s beautiful. It’s not wool, so I could wear it often whilst gallivanting around Austin. It is $500. Why must I always choose between beautiful vintage clothes and money for rent? Alas for me, rent always wins.
I. Need. This. As soon as I saw these pop up on The Blackwing Diaries, I showed the website to my brother and declared “THIS is what I want for my birthday. Or Christmas.” Never mind that it is 11 months away or that I will probably break down and buy it as my birthday gift to me (like I did last year). When I worked at Disneyland, I would ride It’s A Small World and Alice in Wonderland just to stare in awe at Mary Blair’s handiwork. I would then hike to the Disney Gallery (may it RIP) where they had some of her original Small World artwork on display, which I could stare at for hours and hours. Oh, Mary Blair, how I wish I had your eye for color and design aesthetic.
I am in awe of miniture knitting. Who else is excited to see Coraline?
