Shop Preview: Caped Capers

I've been in denial about the arrival of Fall, but I'm trying to embrace it by pulling out some fun outerwear. I love me a good cape, and just stocked the shop with some great ones:

And...some killer jackets coming a little later this week (in all sorts of lengths) for extra credit:

DIY - Vintage Inspired Scalloped Collar

The fine folks at Mollie Makes Magazine (a great DIY mag produced across the pond) contacted me a few months ago asking me to write an article for them on how to update any ol' button-up shirt with a vintage-inspired scalloped collar (based on this original DIY that I had published).

The article just hit newstands in issue 57, and I couldn't be more excited - we got a shoutout on the cover and a nice three page article in the magazine:

If you aren't in the UK, you can get the digital version of Mollie Makes or find my original scalloped collar tutorial here.

Download the collar template here or here to make your own! Let me know how it turns out.

Guys. This blog hasn't had much published on it since, oh, 2013. And...I have a huge stack of really super vintage clothing that's been hanging out, unphotographed and unlisted for just as long.

I blame this baby that I had 18 months ago:

Finally, a use for all the vintage baby clothing I've been hoarding all these years!
For this shoot I  tracked down an old school portrait studio to make sure to get that classic
brown backdrop that we're all used to seeing in our baby pics from 40 years ago. 

But, I'm finally making an effort to get more clothing shot and listed and mailed away into happy homes, and trying to be better about telling people about it on social media.
