Brimfield 2011: Part 2

Sorry for the lag between Brimfield posts, I'm costuming our Commencement musical and have been in the costume shop all day everyday for a week.

This year I was looking for something very particular at Brimfield, vintage sewing ephemera. I've been hard at work on my senior exhibition and I'll continue working on it this summer, because my opening date is September 12, so soon! I was hoping to find some knick-knacks to include in my cases to help make it more visually interesting, and I hit the jackpot at Brimfield.

vintage crochet hooks, needles, buttons, measuring tape, and sewing clamp

I also came away with scarves, pink lacy things, and some other random bits and pieces.

Brimfield 2011: Part 1

Back from our second time at Brimfield! The weather was wonderful (no rain!) and the antiquing was out of this world. I'll post part 2 tomorrow when I have a chance to take pictures of all my goodies but for now some pictures from the day!

Disclaimer: These are random and weird. Oh well.

Lunch break at Hooyah's where we ordered a meatball sub, chicken parmesan sub and apple pie. Because if you're going to eat at a place called Hooyah's you really have to go for it, you know?

Things I've Bought Files: Red Pants

My adorably preppy roommate talked me into buying a pair of red pants on our latest shopping adventure. These red pants:

From Zara

I'm thinking I'll wear them with a light plaid or gingham shirt this summer. Or maybe a loose knit cream sweater.

Serious question: can one wear a red coat with red pants?

Currently Loving: Poketo Striped Fleece Backpack

Y'all are probably sick of my constant search for the perfect backpack. I always convince myself I've found "the one" and then I forget about it or decide I don't really need a backpack (lies, I definitely need something to lug my books around).

But this time I think I've found it.

Striped Fleece Backpacks, $58

And unfortunately temporarily out of stock. Blurgh.
