big prints

Essery Dress by By Malene Birger, photo from Lark

I've been obsessing lately. Over lots of things. Mainly fashion things. I guess because I'm trying to avoid packing up my house or thinking about moving or saying goodbye. We sold our house on Saturday. The timing is perfect, and I feel relieved. But I can't deal with this saying goodbye thing. So I procrastinate and waste time by browsing the internet in search of inspiration. I will be living in New York on Monday.

So, back to the fashion obsessing...I freaking love this dress. Like I want to marry it. Jennifer Parry has gotten me so into big prints lately. Look at the amazing things she's been making--what a unique and beautiful sense of style she has. So full of life and color. I think I need a little boldness in my life this summer, and wearing a bold print will help. I'm dying to buy some Nani Iro fabric and get to work! After I pack up my things and move across the country...

Oh no! I'm moving out-of-state on Monday as well, and I've been soo good at distracting myself from packing that I haven't even started, but the used box hunt begins today. Good luck on your move, how far of a drive is it exacty?

Have you heard of spoonflower.com? You can upload your designs to their site and have them print it on fabric for you. You should check it out. I know you would come up with some adorable prints for wiksten.

Best of luck with the move, Jenny! I know it's got to be hard to leave, but just think of all the excellent shops in NYC that you can frequent. We'll be happy to call you a fellow New Yorker!
