mw dug up these lps at an estate sale this past fall and we brought them home because the josef albers designed covers were just so great.
more like these can be viewed here, even though the show has since closed. I'd love to have a wall with the entire series all together.

I'd put in a somewhat cheeky request last week for a friend in london to pick me up some earl grey at duty free on his way back to new york, having finally run out of my marks + spencer stash from last year.
and instead of sending just tea, this box filled with all sorts of english sweetness arrived at my doorstep this morning, just in time.
such happiness! thank you, p.
(mw, hurry home so I don't eat all of it by myself.)

the most elusive dresses seem to hail from this fair decade and the good ones are are few and far between.
I've been holding onto these darling three for a minute, wanting to relish them for a short while before we are forced to part.
look for them soon.

when miu miu sends an email asking me to flip through their newest capsule collection accessories lookbook, I'm probably going to do it.
and when they show me photos of their newest, heavily bejeweled, sparkly patent flats and bags, I'm probably going to love them.

some tags are more fun to find inside dresses than others.
a dorothy o'hara tag, though, is sure to get my pulse quickened.
a contemporary of the 1950s california aristocracy of dress designers like peggy hunt and ceil chapman, she was best known for making the absolute most out of an hourglass shape and tweaking details with an eye for the progressive and avant garde.
the navy dress, though long part of my collection, will be in the shop next week. the black dress at top isn't going anywhere. ever.

this dress just deserves its own post. that's all I can say. it has side pockets and the most amazingly shiny scribble faux bois print. and that neckline!
find it here.
and last but not least, happy valentine's day! it's the perfect excuse to pull out that gorgeous vintage dress, don't you think?

this dress encapsulates everything I love most in a dress: bright, modernist print, shelf bust, swingy skirt (not to mention the original belt and metal zipper).
find it in the shop
