Hangin' Out: OTR Gateway Celebration

This past weekend, The Boy and I braved the heat and humidity and hung out at the Over-the-Rhine/Gateway Celebration. We checked out some of the local vendors and marveled at the creative talent. You know I was all about the clothes and accessories! I bought a pair of earrings from Amy at Ovenfried Beads. Can't you see recreating a funkier version of the star necklace from the YSL Spring 2008 show with these star-shaped pendants? I smell...

Here, in no particular...

Inspiration: Fall-ready?

The crazy schedule of the fashion industry (Spring shows in September, Fall shows in February) has thrown off my seasonal sensibilities for years. As a result, I usually start craving Fall items around the beginning of July or so. It's kind of ridiculous--in the midst of watching fireworks on Sawyer Point in 90-degree weather wearing short-shorts and a tank top, I'm daydreaming about boots and sweaters! This year, the craving has set in a bit early...
