Check out this post over on love forever. She has picked up the latest issue of Selvedge and posted these beautiful photos from a spread on the women’s clothing of Salvador, Bahia in Brazil. Definitely makes me want to see the rest of the images. (photographs by Fedor Van der Valk)
A little about Selvedge from their website…
“Open a copy of Selvedge and you sense there is a philosophy that Selvedge readers subscribe to. A belief system based on a cerebral and sensual addiction to textiles in all forms. Readers share a belief in the importance of their material surroundings and a passion for the beautiful and beautifully made.
Our aim is simple: to provide a textile publication which fits seamlessly into their creative lifestyle. Directed towards an international, discerning audience, Selvedge covers fine textiles in every context: fine art, interiors, fashion, travel and shopping.”

Hey Rachel, That fabric is a vintage find the designers picked up. It won’t be for sale. Sorry!
I really love this digital mag style will save us, and they love “all things super-stylish, organic, ethical, eco-friendly, vintage, recycled and sustainable.” In the current issue, they did an article on re-worked vintage and featured the “post-vintage” work of fashion and art collective Andrea Crews (pictured above). Check out the article here…

Hi Delilah. Congrats on starting you blog!!! I’ll definitely keep an eye on it.
Cathy Horyn, fashion writer for the New York Times, started her own blog about a week ago. She did this really great post on Alber Elbaz of Lanvin, documenting an issue he had with this super futuristic polyester fabric. They made a digital flipbook of his sketches and the construction steps he took in creating a dress from the trouble fabric. It’s really interesting to see the problem solving involved. I also really love seeing his sketches and the process of developing an abstract idea. Hopefully sometime soon, I can get some similar information to share from our FP designers!

Umm, the process reveals so much of the character doesn’t it – just like a blog.

I absolutely love the notebook idea. You find the most amazing things! Your blog is always unique and so interesting! Great stuff!
Check out Susie Bubble’s DIY instructions for creating your own “puff” skirt. You’ll need a full circle skirt and some ribbons! If you do it just so, the skirt might even look cool both ways, with the puffs and untied with the ribbons just hanging. If you don’t know Susie already, check her out. Her blog is definitely one of my favorites for fashion.

aww, i love susie!
Whowhatweardaily has called out our jewel toned flats as the perfect satin ballet flats if your name is not Kate, Lindsay or Sarah Jessica. The site is actually kind of cool. You can submit questions to find out what celebrities were wearing what and where. And they have a stylist you can question to find more personal fashion advice. I like their tagline…”We don’t care about who you’re dating or if you eat. We only care about what you wear.” I know I , for one, do care IF people eat, but I’m glad there’s a celebrity site that’s not discussing it constantly…

“…We only care about what you wear.” That kind of makes me sick, not that people shouldn’t care what they wear, but when it becomes the ONLY thing they care about, that is sick. Don’t get me wrong, though, fashion is rad.

No celebrity “icons” please. In my humble opinion, that would detract from, rather than enhance, this wonderful, individualistic, free-spirited line…the antithesis of Hollywood don’tcha think?
We just have to point out how amazing these watches are. Designed by Beth Frank in LA, she combines vintage embossed leather belts with antique watch faces to create a rough yet elegant piece of jewelry. In addition to the vintage elements, Beth adds a hand crafted buckle. The face of the watch is removable so you can switch it out with other bands, or combine a new face with the band. You have to keep track of the time, so why not on this beautiful watch instead of your silly cell phone?

Love the watch just to expensive for me
- jean -Nov 26, 2006, 2:42AM
They don’t cost a ridiculous about of money. they are good watches and great quality and have that awesome vintage effect. I love the leather band on mine.. it feels soft. I would know, I proudly own a beth frank watch…and i LOVE IT!
You may have noticed the recent popularity of street fashion in blogs and magazines. (My personal favorite is Paris based facehunter .) Unless you live in one of the major cities, your chances of getting photographed are pretty slim. In the spirit of DIY, some girls have taken matters into their own hands and created wardrobe remix , a group on flickr. Check it out and get some new outfitting ideas from the crew involved, or start sharing your own personal styling talents.
