organic goodness

in my search for an evening gown i added to my search something that was better for the planet. though i knew an evening gown was a reach, and indeed never found something ankle length and green, i did find an interesting variety of lovely eco-conscious cocktail dresses, undies, etcetera
clockwise from top left:
angelica dress by ecoskin, organic john patrick hand knit cardigan,the movie star dress by kate, perfectly imperfect organic cotton lace boy short, alison pleated dress by sublet, hera dress by popomomo, fleece jacket by stem, brasenia dress by ecoskin

i have an evening gown to purchase for a formal event around the corner. specifically, a floor-length evening gown. not that i am having tremendous luck finding the perfect one but i did come across this fabulous site of vintage party frocks. they post new dresses every couple of weeks and seem to sell out quite quickly (i think all of the above have been spoken for). an interesting selection of goddess-style and full-skirt stuff...

handmade signs

inspired by a show we saw last night about the artist steve powers and the hand-painted revitalization of coney island, i looked for some handmade sign inspiration. so i poked around flickr and found some wonderful images.

some with colorful advertising...

some with important messages...

some beautifullly weathered and simple...

(pls bear with me while i credit the flickr photographers)

i came across seattle artist jesse brown on happy cavalier ... love his handlettering and- better yet- the way he uses it to show how (cleverly) his mind works
