Very excited about two things:
These Libris Lunaria Fox totes, that I've been wanting to make since we opened the shop in the fall!!! I'm a big fan of tote bags and it's awesome to be able to make my own! Fingers crossed you'll take to them kindly - I'm hoping we can eventually make more bags with different images - like - astronomy and sea creates!!!
And then there's also the strange acquisition of these practically perfect (to me) sailor jeans via an unassuming army surplus store in Berkeley for a cool 15 clams... I've been trying to find a pair of sailor jeans since 2004 and I think the process of trying on so many pairs that wouldn't even get over my hips made me come to hate pants and jeans. When I lived in Burlington, VT I'd go to Old Gold and grab stacks and stacks of denim. I'd try on 4 pairs of the same size and each one would fit differently - so I decided to call it quits and gave up the hope that I'd ever find a pair that met the following criteria: fits in the waist, looked okay through the hip, and weren't flood pants. These are almost perfect except for a few nitpicky things - but I'm happy to have some measurements to go off of to buy more and more (on ebay?) because they're the perfect solution for short blouses!!
