hello there all of my northeastern pennsylvania folks.
just a quick note to let you know that i will be selling my goodies at the wilkes-barre farmers market on public square this thursday (tomorrow) from 10am-4pm! i’m so excited to come home and hang out on the square where i spent so many nights as a teen climbing the jungle gym and talking to weirdo strangers and acting like, well, a teen!
so, come on out and say hi and support your local businesses and farmers. ps: it’s supposed to be hot and sunny tomorrow which is perfect weather to buy a pair of my new sunglasses!
i am participating in a celebrity handbag charity ebay auction to support the amazing “we promise foundation”. the we promise foundation is dedicated to making dreams come true for children struggling with degenerative, life-threatening, debilitating or chronic illnesses, or those facing tremendous hardship. The foundation is a non-profit public charity that provides support to help children with a single goal: to put smiles on the faces of children by making their dreams come true.
the handbag i donated is the “lima tote” pictured below.

to celebrate the first day of summer, which happens this week by the way in case you didn’t know, i am excited to tell you that i am now offering tank tops in my online store! it couldn’t be better timing because, i’m not sure where you are located my loyal readers, but today in philadelphia its hotter than heck! and a little birdie told me its going to be 100 degrees tomorrow. yuck!
this is my first line of tank tops and, if i must say so myself, i think they are so darn cute! i hope you do too!
ps: i would like to thank my models kelly and matt for being such great…well…models!
now, try to stay cool in this heat! hopefully with a new jay mccarroll tank top, but if not, at least grab yourself a popsicle. speaking of, for all you philly folks, might i suggest this place? the lil’ pop shop in west philly. it’s new and super yummy! i had the strawberry rhubarb lemonade popsicle yesterday!

for those of you out there in the blogosphere who pride themselves on obscure B52’S references, the title of this post is indeed a reference to the closing track “WORK THAT SKIRT” on the incomparable B52’S “WHAMMY” album from 1983. one of my all time fav’s! anywho…
here in philadelphia, although its a little dreary outside today, there’s no denying that summer is here! and what does that mean? that means it’s skirt season for all you ladies and perhaps some gentlemen out there too! i wanted to let you know that i have some super cute new skirts in my online shop. they are called the “LEIPZIG SKIRT” and they are named after the city of leipzig in germany. it’s also a reference to the song “LEIPZIG” by one of my favorite musical artists of all time, thomas dolby! jeez…what’s with all of the “all time musical fav’s” today? i must be nostalgic about the music of my youth or something. the skirts feature fabric that i designed from my “HABITAT” line. they are 100% cotton and are fully lined with an elastic waistband and side pockets. yay for pockets! and…they are made right here in philadelphia!
also, a shout out to my model tori for her modeling skills. it was certainly warmer this time around than the last time when we shot the helsinki scarves. i swear it was about 8 degrees that day! she sure is a trooper that tori!
also, i have a new feature in my online shop called “ROCK THIS LOOK”. this feature shows you a head to toe look and breaks down the products for you for easy ordering. stay tuned to that section for more looks curated by yours truly!
