my so called life.

hello there folks.

wasn’t i just at fashion week a few days ago? no, its been almost a month! my god…where is time going? it is flying by! and this getting darker earlier business isn’t helping my mental state at all either. all i want to do is eat baguettes and pie for dinner and lay with the dog under a down comforter and watch “my so called life”. ps: i just discovered my so called life. where has this show been all my life? oh…i know, i wasn’t a teen girl in 1994, thats why. in any case, i now know what all of this jordan catalano obsession is all about. he’s so cute in that show but so incredibly endearingly dumb. right? claire danes also gives a really great performance! did she have a nose job or what? anywho…

in other news…a few things from the desk of jay mccarroll…

1. i have a new section on my website called SAMPLE SALE. this is a section where we are down to the last little yummy morsels of something and we want to offer it to you at a super nice price. sounds good to me!

sock it to ya.

hello there folks.

happy labor day! i probably should be having a bbq at the beach right now but there is work to be done! besides, it’s raining out here in philadelphia and for all of you creative types out there, rainy days are the best days to get work done. right? wherever you are, i hope you are relaxing and enjoying the last little moments of summertime fun!

i really tried to prolong sharing this news for as long as i possibly could, but i just couldn’t wait not one second longer! last friday i picked up the first production samples of a line of socks that i designed. yes…SOCKS! i’m just so darn excited about them. i really feel that these are truly something everyone can enjoy. they are the perfect item to add a little pep into your step (pun intended)!

i will be selling them on my website as well as other retail and online channels. i will keep y’all updated with any information on where you can buy them closer to when they will be available. if everything goes according to schedule, that should be within the next few weeks!

also check back as i will be posting pics of the other patterns and colorways that haven’t been delivered yet. um, can we say zig zags? i’m totally psyched about those!

for those of you who follow the goings on with my fabric line with an eye of a hawk, i have a pair of socks that resembles the “miami” print from my CENTER CITY line. now you can have a pillow or a set of curtains or a quilt to match your socks! sounds like a good idea to me!

speaking of fabric…a little birdie informed me that CENTER CITY will be shipping to stores this week or next. i can’t wait to see what all of you make with it. that truly is the best part of the fabric designing process for me!

well, thats all for me folks! i have to whip up a shirt today for fashion week in 3 days. gotta look good for my lord and taylor fashions night out event on this coming thursday!
