Sprouse is Home and Other Things

Lots of things to update you all on.  First of all, the Stephen Sprouse jacket arrived home from Ohio today.  The fabulously talented Edith Kovacs did the painstaking re-weaving, and she did an amazing job.  I was really on the fence on whether this jacket should be saved or not, but I'm so glad I chose to do the restoration and that I found Edith.  I'm listing Edith's website with her permission so you will all have an amazing fabric re-weaver at your finger tips.  Chetta b

For some reason, Jane and I have both decided we need to have a great faux fur for fall.  We've had lots of fun looking and here is one of our finds…..
Faux fur
I found a great cranberry colored faux fur, and I will model it soon.  I just love that the colors are so unrealistic.  When is the last time you saw a cranberry or forest green colored animal?  That's the fun of faux fur…We are also loving black and white.  Could be Dries Van Noten's current collection, but we have come across some great vintage pieces in stark black and white, and I'm loving the contrast!

Great 80's piped black and white jacket with Christopher Ross belt.  Also……

sent us some really fun necklaces.  Carol is wearing the vampire teeth, and they are so cute.  The teeth are actually hinged, so they move back and forth.  Check out her site, she is a Texas girl.  Thanks Tara!

    love the necklace and the forest green faux fur. Fur is going to be a big trend, I’m so happy that many women are into faux or recycled fur!

    Great finds! I personally think you should hold onto the Sprouse jacket, but it’s up to you! πŸ™‚ I love colorful furs too, there’s a vintage light blue fur jacket I stalk. Great necklace too!

    Your style is truly unique and absolutely wonderful. I have enjoyed each of your posts and they just keep getting better. Please continue to do such an amazing job.
    Is there a possibility that the black and white skirt that Jane has on be for sale? It is such a lovely piece. If it is, please let me know. Otherwise, you have such a wonderful eye for vintage!!

    Judy- I love the clothes, but most especially, I love the interior of your house (or at least I think it’s your house)!! It’s gorgeous! You’d be an amazing interior decorator. Would you mind sharing more pictures of the house/interior with us?

    I agree with Cruz. I think you hold onto it for a while. Have fun wearing it, play around with it then when you’re bored…sell it =).
    Love the faux fur and the skirt though! Are they hitting the store?

    Adore the vampire teeth necklace, and… found some awesome shoes. Don’t know if you’ve seen these before or are familiar with the designer, but I thought these were wild!
