I’m a big vintage photo collector, so I was pretty jazzed when I found a whole basket of late 1930s photos hidden away at a local antique store. This particular bunch of images all appear to be from the same group of friends and family--snapshots from summers together between 1936 through 1938. While the hot days keep getting hotter, these photos are a perfect source of inspiration on how to look cute and still stay cool. They’re also an adorable glimpse into ... Read More

I don't know if you have ever felt this weird sense of fear in your own home, but I know that I have. I know that it's inexplicable, that there's no real reason to be ... Read More

Summer means a lot of things: pools, slip n' slides, cook outs, struggling to install that window AC unit, and ultimately, vacation.

Making your own custom caftan is a breeze. Get a breathable, cotton fabric that’s 60" wide, and measure from your shoulder down to your desired caftan length; double this measurement, adding 1/2" for the hem. Cut the ... Read More

Whether you define the start of summer as the moment it’s finally warm enough to break out your favorite short-shorts (sans tights, of course), the void between the beautiful ending of one school year and the dreaded beginning of another, or the first weekend you and your girls can head to your favorite beach, it’s finally here for many of us, in all of its mercurially sunny splendor (And if you’re one of those sticklers who believes that summer ...

It's finally hot enough to hit the beaches, and it's got me dreaming about the old-timey Coney Island-- when girls' bathing suits looked like complicated costumes and the rides were terribly unsafe, but terribly fun. Maybe I'm just idealizing things, but the old Coney Island is something extra special that now only exists in history. I love the idea of beaches flooded with straw boater hats, bathing costumes, swimming caps, rosy cheeks, sheer Edwardian dresses, ... Read More
