I picked up a sprinkle of additions for the vintage annex of reid.damnit and learnt a ton of stuff along the way. I like to research a little about where a particular item came from or find fun facts about the label. Well, let me tell you – I learned all about the design inspiration behind “pussy bow blouses” or “secretary blouses”, the founder of The Girl Scouts and the good people behind Wrangler.
So these have been a long time coming, but aprons are up and ready for your buying pleasure…Red, Ikat, Denim, Floral, Yellow, Cream and naturally – leather. Cotton and cotton blend with brass plated eyelets holding the ties in place. Check ‘em out here in my STORE. UPDATE: Also now available at Marlow & Sons in Willimasburg, Brooklyn.
You get the picture…
I totes finished up another batch of totes and already there are only three left – what are you waiting for??
Hmmm, that would be an oxymoron right?? All English Language issues aside, I’ve opened up a vintage store on Etsy that has some of my favourite pieces that I’ve been collecting but haven’t been quite right for me. But may be just perfect for you! As you’ll see, I kind of have a thing for sportswear right now…
I’ll be adding things as I find them, leaving them be or modifying them into something even better!
Here are some of the bags you’ll wish you had…but don’t worry you can! Just added them to the store.
First off, Sergio took a handful of photos of me making a belt which I’d held off posting until I actually had some in the store – finally, they are THERE! Along with some new colours of the current ss2012 bag collection. Ooof they look so good…if I do say so myself.
Skiving a place for the buckle and keeper
Popping out the buckle slot
Matching thread to secure buckle to belt
And voila! one electric blue belt
why limit yourself to just wearing one??
I have finally loaded the new bags to the store. New belts will be added soon enough as well, a few new colours and a little behind the scenes shoot Sergio did with me the day of the shoot to show you how some of it is done.
Today is the official reid.damnit birthday – my good friend Rudj pointed me in the direction of Etsy all those years ago and I thought, hey, why not. It’s been a fun ride ever since! Quote BIRTHDAY at checkout for a 25% storewide saving, including already discounted items! Yeah!!
I – along with everyone else – have gone a little crazy for prints right now and these hand-drawn prints by Israeli Yosef Perez are simply stunning. It’s in total contradiction to a conversation I had with a friend of mine recently that I boldly stated that I think I actually prefer to wear mainstream fashion….Just when I think I can happily live a life of Breton Stripes, Blue Jeans and Blazers I see a collection like this and throw all my conservative fashion ideals out the window and wonder how I can work a fish eye dress into my existing wardrobe…Thanks Very Glossy for finding these beauties.
