Fashion illustrations from Meg of The Jersey Gem. I know I have an affinity for all things Joisey, but this gem of a bloggerista hails from Jersey, of the Channel Islands off the coast of Normandy, France. Aside from being a talented illustrator, Meg is also in the midst of opening a café in her hometown. I love her blog because when she features photos from recent collections—or even her recent purchases—she always includes an illustration. I think author might be in her future as well.
PLEASE click the image so you can see full-size images and the runway pieces immortalized in Meg’s illustrations. Totally worth the visit!
The original Sidecar story by Cointreau, starring the glamorous, exquisite Dita Von Teese. Since we’re feeling all retro in the fashion world, let’s just go there. Beautifully shot.
A few months ago, the elegant and affable Tim Gunn visited locally, and I knew I had to go meet him. And I did meet him—and he did not disappoint. He is beyond gracious and so down-to-earth.
While I waited to meet The Gunn, however, I was captivated by someone else in the vicinity. Even Mr. Gunn’s megawatt smile and celebrity wasn’t enough to keep my eyes from straying. Because they did. Straight to Gigi Karmous-Edwards, and to be more specific, her amazing red bag.
Where is THAT from? I thought. I have to know. I need that bag.
So after meeting Tim Gunn, I practically chased Gigi down to ask where she got her bag. Where did she get it?

Many of you expressed interest in acquiring a fur vest after I shared mine with you in Friend Friday: Fall Forecast. They’re selling like hotcakes everywhere, but I’ve managed to round up a nice collection of faux fur vests, all under $100.
The best bargain (and best-looking) vests are Rachel Zoe’s on QVC. Waitlist yourself for the black if that’s what you’re after. I can’t imagine they won’t be restocked. I think the red fox (bottom right image below) is a stunner. Might have to pick that one up myself.
