"Sunday Runway, Bright. and Brighter . . . "


Greetings,

We're gonna just keep it simple around here today.  It's just a few days away from August and now is the time for the fullest expression of our summer wardrobes.   I spent part of this last week in New York, and had one of my few chances to wear actual Summer clothing.  (For those of you who are new here . . . it's regularly no warmer than the mid 60's or 70's here in San Francisco in the summer.  And yes, I wore a wool sweater to work on Thursday.)

So, let's break out the madras . . . and the fun, bright colours . . . and party like it's summer.

One of the highlights of last week's visit to New York was a private tour of The Cary Collection.  It's a dense, but highly curated, collection of antiques and memorabilia.  Vintage clothing.  First edition books.  And amazing objet.



A glimpse inside my own closet . . . and evidence of a weekend of laundry.

I, too, have had a tour of the fantastic Carey collection. Boggles the mind! He is a dedicated and extraodinary collector. I hope to post about him one day as well. RD

Have you seen Moonrise Kingdom? Lots of plaid. Lots of Tartan and even Bill Murray was sporting vintage Madras Patchwork pants. An adorable movie in every way, but the set and costumes, circa 1965 were amazing. ~Delores
