I hope you’re excited because this week is filled with lots of vintage goodies!! If you don’t know the drill by now here’s how it goes… listed below are images and links to my eBay watchlist for the week. It’s a little longer than usual for a couple of reasons: 1) It’s been a while since I did an eBay post and 2) It was nearly impossible to edit items out!! Enjoy!!

I love music, maybe as much as I love fashion… which I fully realize is blasphemy for a fashion design student to say. Music may be a big part of my life, but I’m terrible at describing it. Whenever any of my friends ask me about a band that I’m into I usually say something like “um… uh, well, they’re good. LIKE REALLY GOOD. I love them, and I think you would too!! I’ll send you a link later so you can check them out for yourself.” So needless to say this isn’t going to be a very wordy post. I’ve ranked my top ten albums and included my favorite song from each one. It was somewhat easy to narrow it down to 10, but it was nearly impossible to choose what order they should go in. I had a lot of fun putting this together, and I hope you find some new tunes to listen to!
Stars – The Five Ghosts and the Seance
I know a lot of people will think I’m crazy for including this album. All I can say is that I have a weakness for indie-pop (there I go already trying to describe music genres).
Favorite Song: We Don’t Want Your Body
Mumford & Sons – Sigh No More
This is one of those albums that I listen to on repeat during the countless rainy winter days in San Francisco.
Favorite Song: White Blank Page
The Tallest Man on Earth – The Wild Hunt
I love his voice.
Favorite Song: The Wild Hunt
Once again, it’s been quite a while since I’ve blogged. I don’t really have an excuse, all I can say is that the combination of grad school, Thanksgiving, and getting sick all contributed to the lack of posts. Finals end in about a week, and I’m planning on posting more regularly over winter break. This is gonna be a quick one, because I need to start working on my my final project for Fashion Illustration. I’m going to draw these images in my own style, then I will choose my favorite one and lightbox that drawing onto some fabric, and when all that’s said and done I’m going to hand embroider the dress of the fabric drawing.
The one on the left is from the Alexander McQueen Spring ’09 collection and the one on the right is from the Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring ’10 collection. It’s going to be a lot of work, but it’ll definitely be worth it. I’m going to be posting pictures of it, as well as some of my other design projects after the semester ends, so stay tuned.
Oh also, if you’re interested I’ve added a new link to the LOST and FIND ME page up at the top. It’s a link to my last.fm profile. Before you check it out I want to preface the top artists and songs in my library by saying that I signed up for last.fm quite a long time ago, and then stopped using it for a couple of years… but now I’m back and scrobbling new tunes!
I’ve put together a quick Christmas wish-list for you all to peruse. It was my first time using Polyvore. I had a lot of fun, and I can’t wait to use it more in the future! I would absolutely love everything/anything on the list (obvi), but if I had to choose I’d say that the #1 thing would probably be the Madewell high-riser jeans. I’m so over low-rise/hip-hugger style… it’s not even funny. You all might think I’m crazy now, but just wait and see because the natural waist look is coming back (thank goodness!!).
Okay, I’ve officially spent way too much time avoiding school work… so I’m just going to say enjoy!
