A Fashionable Escape

Every once in a while things get a little too hectic around here and I like to grab a little escapism time to roam the web in search of the fabulous.

This morning I found a link on fb for an online shop that was new to me- Shop Ruche. I love their vintage inspired modern, it reminds me of the things at Anthropoligie that make me swoon. But if you hop over, check out their prices. I haven't done any internet clothes shopping but I'm definitely going to check back here when searching out some new pieces for the fall.

Thinking fashion I have two other things to share with you. One is the new book Sew Serendipity. The eye candy here is amazing. I love (i.e. want) everything I've seen so far. I've been on a look out for a killer trench for a while and love this take on it (see above). If you visit the author's blog you can see another version of a coat she made and is wearing in this post. Super cute!

The other place my momentary escape took me was to Alabama Chanin's site. I've been a fan of this company's aesthetic, and design since I first happened upon Natalie Chanin's book, Alabama Stitch Book. She does a lot with detail and stitching that really captivates me. If you aren't familiar with this artist or her community it really is worthwhile checking out her book. Especially if you're someone who loves the hand sewn look or loves to hand sew.

My time is up- I hear a munchkin calling my name. :) Have a great day!
