Why I’m not just wearing this 24/7 is a total fucking mystery to me at this juncture.
Photowalking in my dogsitting hood yesterday and captured a few angles of historic Gabriola House (and at bottom, the tile entryway of a nearby brick apartment building that just kind of worked with this colour story).
Scout Magazine has some terrific old photos of the place from back in the day here.
All about mad huey shit these days. #springstagram #pretty
Sweet mother of God, I would wear this until it was in shreds.
This spring, toile de Jouy fabrics are popular for both home decor and clothing. Many fabric manufacturers and fashion designers, including Ruffian, Carven, and Oscar de la Renta, reinterpreted the scenic pattern for their spring 2013 runway collections. Compare the contemporary toile de Jouy designs with some examples from the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s collection. Enjoy!
