1.) The above checked scarf/peter pan collar niceness.
The photo is from this Etsy shop (it's a product photo from one of their listings - sometimes the simple item hanging on the wall photographs just knock my socks off.)
2.) These Tin Can candles (I got the Sweet Olive Blossom). I soaked the label off and its sweetness as an object is matched only by the lovely scent.
3.) My new grey suede Coclico oxfords, bought to replace a pair of completely worn-down favorite grey shoes. These are so beautifully made, were snagged on really good sale, and have little cornflower-blue laces! J'taime!
4.) The discovery that Spoonflower is now offering cotton voile! I can't wait for my swatches to get here. If it's nice, airy Summer dresses with custom prints could be in my future.
5.) Paging through Matchbook Magazine (via the SJV blog) - an online magazine with a sensibility that I see popping up in lots of places: classic prepster meets vintage sweetheart (lots of JCrew, Kate Spade, sailor tees, red lipstick). I'm very impressed by this issue, which features interviews with Rifle Paper Co. and Marais shoes, among other indie all-stars. The whole thing is really sweet, ambitious, and very thoughtfully composed. A+!
6.) I almost forgot - my new spectacles!!!
