The Movie I'm Waiting For

I've been hearing about Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan for a while and the buzz has been quite good and at the very least it should be unique because Aronofsky's been known to be a very intersting director (The Wrestler, The Fountain, Requiem for a Dream). Black Swan itself has Natalie Portman as it's lead actress (besides both of us being Israelis so, you know, Israeli pride and so, I think she's quite a wonderful actress) and the trailer is kind of crazy (in a good way). The poster for the movie has been stunning to being with but now more posters have been surfacing and they too are gorgeous. I think it says so much about a movie's aesthetics if the time is taken to create a poster that does'nt just feature the big-shots featured but also expresses something about what vibe the movie's going for. I hope the movie lives up to it's hype!

Customer Delight

This is probably my favorite kind of posts - displaying my fabulous customers wearing the items they've bought in my shop. This specific customer is Izabelle who just happens to be the owner of Boojiboo - where she makes fun and pretty retro aprons, one of the first shops I came accross when joining Etsy and to this day one of my best friends proudly wears the apron I got for her from Boojiboo. Anyway, Izabelle bought one of the most beauitful dresses I had in my shop and I'm so happy to see she's pleased:

She even posted about it in her blog. Getting a sneak peek at your costumers life is priceless and I'm so happy every time it happens. Thank you!

Also, reminding everyone that my 1st anniversary sale is still going on the shop until Oct. 23rd - take a look.

AllenCompany Inc is Taunting Me!

It's so hard to find BLACK vintage (especially if it's from before the 1960s). I need to wear black everyday to work. Obviously I don't NEED to wear vintage but why wipe yourself out completely just because you need to wear a certain color? Allen Company inc is absolutely one of my favorite vintage shops (on Etsy and in general) and (the lovely) Kristina, it's owner, just made a huge black update to her shop. And I want them all but alas, the money fairy is not kind to me. Look at the goodies:

Leftovers from Summer

Even though everyone claims autumn is here, I don't really feel it. As the seasons change (everywhere else but here.. although yes, I would admit it's not AS humid as usual) so do the shop displays, everywhere fills up with rich warmer color and fabrics, just as I like it.
Anyone who reads this blog must know I'm not a summer girl, but I too must dress to fit the seasons and as summer supposdly leaves us, I'd like to reflect over some fabulous items in my summer wishlist: (click images to reach their sources)
