What would Veronica Corningstone wear?

last night i was half dozing on the couch after a long day, Anton was flipping through the channels, and somehow we got sucked into watching Anchorman 2. which is probably one of the silliest movies ever created. it’s pretty funny, even hilarious in parts, but what i loved the most was the…

Inspired by Meryl and Diane: Mayflower Supply FW14 Look Book

Mayflower Supply FW14

damn, the FW14 lookbook by Mayflower Supply was bittersweet for me to look through. very sweet because New York is always a good idea; but ever so slightly bitter because my husband is actually there right now – without me, waaaah! owner Liz Hull gave me some insight into the lovely…

i wrote a post about backpacker magazine covers from the seventies back in 2009, but unfortunately lost it to the gods of unreliable image hosting. so i thought i’d remind you that you can actually browse back issues of backpacker magazine on google books (from 1973-now) i have spent an…

1970’s
