vintage connection is selling this extra large david bowie poster from 1973's aladdin sane album! it is so XL it takes up a big amount of wall space. i could see this poster in a dorm room or, where it sat for years and years, above a couch. the poster is way too large to display at vintage connection, so if you are interested in buying this poster or would like to inquire about it, please use the comment box to do so and i will get back to you.

the photo above is of the actual poster and is a good indicator of its true size. ( fyi: the corners of the poster are worn from tacs and hanging. please remember it is used, but in great vintage condition.) if you have any questions, please ask!

*edit* britt was nice enough to email me a photo of bowie in his new home...

fitting room fix up

so, it's been two years since i opened the store. with all of things i really wanted to do with the space, the fitting room always got last priority. well, with the store coming together after the awful leaks from october's rain, the fitting room finally feels complete.
here's the before...

here's the after...

wall paper: metallic and lime, floral by shand kydd
area rug: basketweave by chilewich bought at petulia's folly
wrought iron hook: bought at anthropologie
bench: vintage vanity bench recovered in fabric from b wilks fabrics on 4th street
room divider: given to me and repainted in white

on the hunt for

thick, knit, warm and fuzzy, patterned tights. here's the problem: orla kiely's version (the first pic) are perfect... thick, knit, black with a splash of color that i can wear with open toe shoes, but completely out of my "tight buying" price range. the others are cute, but not exactly what i'm looking for. by the time i find just what i want, i can bet i won't want them anymore. that's always how it seems to happen.
