Fox Totes!

fox tote!

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!!

Love the jeans! Great buy. I need to army surplus stores more often.

The fox image on the bag is perfect.

I just died of excitement, and now I am a ghost.

If you ever had a seahorse one, I would die again :D

I might need this little guy come payday though.

The tote is beautiful! Love the print

Also really like the way you styled these jeans (great cut - what a find!) with the loely hat and top with elbow patches. Lots of great details all over :)

Caitlin Rose said...

Very pretty. It's like a fairytale. And I wish all pants were high waisted!

The tote looks amazing. Such a great print. I used to hand draw totes and sell them, but it was too time consuming. I always wanted to print my own.

tuesday night, all the girls and boys in my knitting group were showing off their *new* bags. i nonchalantly slid my dirty tote (free with a subscription to martha stewart living) under the table. i'm going to go buy this right now. i will no longer have tote-anxiety. thank you, dreamcat.

How exciting. The fox tote is lovely. I've had the chance to study a few urban foxes in my backyard in London. Regal little fellas aren't they?

Gina said...

Super cute! Love it.
And yes, a good pair of jeans is possibly the most difficult thing in the world to find.
But you found a fantastic pair!

I love it!!


Jay said...

You're killing me with this, Francesca. I swore never to buy another totebag because I have so many, but I don't think I can resist this splendid fella!
