thank god for my facebook friends or else i would have no idea when baseball season is. i think it’s happening now. right? well, if it is, or even if it isn’t, i have the cutest baseball shirts to share with you in my online shop…like…right now! they are called the “nishinomiya baseball shirt” and they are inspired by the city of the same name in japan where the japanese high school baseball national championships are played. fun!
also, for my mainline/philadelphia/tri-state area friends, it’s that time of year again…fall art and craft show season! this weekend marks the first of many shows i have coming up over the next few months. here are the deets for this weekend…
WHO: me and over 100 artists, crafters, makers, designers and foodies.
WHAT: the clover market.
WHERE: 12 east lancaster avenue. ardmore, pa. booth #27.
WHEN: this coming sunday september 15th from 10am to 5pm.
WHY: i don’t know much, but i know that you like to support your local artsy fartsies. 😉
you may be thinking that i don’t know how to spell. in this day and age of spellcheck, is that even possible? i rarely ever let myself get too serious with things but this week i will be having some seriously good times on sirius xm radio!
mark your calendars folks…i will be hosting my own 1 hour show from 10 am to 11am EST on this coming thursday september 5th on the stars channel, channel 106. the show will be a part of “fashion…unzipped” which is sirius xm’s new york fashion week radio coverage. my co-anchor will be judith regan and we will be discussing my fashion week experiences, what i’m up to these days and, of course, project runway. i will also be bringing in a special guest and chatting with them about their fashion week experiences.
i will say that i am most excited to be able to take calls from listeners. i feel like this is a bucket list thing for me. “hello there linda from rochester new york, whats your question?”! if you are listening and have a good question for me, i encourage you to give me a little ring a ding ding at 888-94-STARS (888- 947-8277).
i look forward to hearing from you and if you are driving or are terrified of hearing the sound of your own voice, and can’t call in, you can always just sit and listen. i think its going to be a lot of fun! seriously!
yes, this is a reference to one of the best, most cheesy songs that was ever written by one of the most awesome rockin’ bands that ever was. that would be “come sail away” by “styx. do you need a reminder of all of the awesomeness? if so….
anywho, now that we got all of that awesomeness out of the way…i am not sure if you were paying attention or not, but i do believe that crispy yummy “fall feeling” was flying through the air for the past few days. that feeling prompted me to think that maybe i should have a summer clearance sale to make room for new fall merchandise coming your way.
for those of you in the warmer climates, this is perfect for you because you don’t get cold weather like we do here in philadelphia and you can get away with super cute summery styles all year round. for those of you in the colder climates, this is a good time to stock up on goodies for next season or for layering pieces this fall. whatever your climactic situation, there are lots of great deals so be sure to check out this super duper summer clearance sale.
the sale starts today monday august 26th and continues through monday september 2nd. that’s labor day in case you forgot!
if you are like me, you love a good tote bag. i have so many of them that serve all sorts of purposes for all sorts of situations. i use them to cart around fabric samples to my factory, ones for overnight stays away from home, some for groceries and a few giant ones for the beach. oh my friend the beach…how i’ve missed you this summer! i just didn’t get to the beach as much as i would have liked to this year. it probably has something to do with the fact that i have been trying to get these dang tote bags produced and into your hands!
i am thrilled to be introducing a new bag silhouette in 5 unique colorways in my online shop just in time for back to school. this is the perfect bag for all of your…well…whatever it is that you cart around on a daily basis. this new tote bag is called the copenhagen and it is inspired by the super cool city in denmark called…you guessed it….copenhagen. duh!
i’d like to give a shout out to my niece molly for modeling these for me! she’s always such a trooper and shes’s becoming quite the face of jay mccarroll these days. these photos were taken at the abandoned pool at moon lake park in northeastern pennsylvania. i had so many good times there as a child! if they were still open, it would be the perfect place to pack your copenhagen tote for a day of sunshine and splashing at the pool!
well folks, thats about all for me. i’ve been a super busy beaver and i have plenty of fun merchandise and events on the horizon so be sure to stay tuned to my website and online shop!
did you know that if you stare directly into the sun, your eyes will catch on fire? well, maybe not catch on fire, but it is certainly not good news if you do stare too long. you must protect those pupils and you must do so fashionably. luckily for you, i have just added some super fun new sunglass styles in my online shop.
the title of this post is inspired by a song by none other than the queen bee herself, rupaul. i will tell you, when you are having a less then stellar self-confidence day, just put this on blast and i guarantee you will feel better! i love me some ru…so campy!
in the theme of looking good…i wanted to let you know that my web designer jen has been working like a dog to update the website and the online shop. i am loving the fresher, more graphic look and it’s so easy to navigate now. i think it looks good and feels gorgeous. thanks again for all of your hard work jen!
also, in honor of the pretty new site, we decided to have a summer sale. from tonight (july 22nd) through friday night (july 26th), everything in the online shop will be 20% off. that’s 20% off folks!!! there are so many cute things in the shop right now, if i must say so myself.
well, i hope you are all enjoying this questionably nice summer weather. a million degrees, rain, a million degrees, rain, a million degrees. we should all try to enjoy it because, before you know it, it will be winter and frigid and i will be bitchin’ about that. the good news is, is that you can start rocking some new geneva and helsinki scarves then. they are going into production soon! also, new for this fall season, hats! yay! stay tuned!
my apologies for being so MIA lately. i’ve been up to my eyeballs in getting everything ready for my fall production. lots of cute things coming your way over the next few months so stay tuned!
as for now, we are in the thick of summertime and it is so stinking hot and luckily for you i have super fun summer tanks, tank dresses, shift dresses and sunglasses just waiting to keep you looking and feeling cool! the best part is you can come check them out in person this coming weekend. so…if you are in the philadelphia/new jersey area this weekend…
