My great mistake, the fault for which I can't forgive myself, is that one day I ceased my obstinate pursuit of my own individuality // Oscar Wilde

Ninesday.

9. Birdy.

8. Check out this lovely zigzag, multicolored dress from Dorothy Perkins. I think it could easily transition from summer to fall, from casual to dressy. How versatile. Or if you want something a bit more occasion-specific, this is perfect for a date. And this is sweet for a BBQ. Or in Auburn, this would be cute for a football game. Perhaps this for the office.

7. Andreas Franke’s Underwater Photo Exhibition.“Mystified scenes of the past that play in a fictional space. Dreamworlds, where you can get lost or you can identify with. This makes new and unexpected atmosphere.”

6. Today marks a new day in my life: I have found Trendland. I might never use another website again…okay, who are we kidding? I’m always bouncing around. But, really. If you haven’t browsed, do it now.

5. I’m quite fond of this Pixie market military-inspired jacket. I think I would make it a bit more girly by pairing it with this dress.

4. I promise, there really are things to do online other than shop. But this post has my mind focused on these pants. Dear Topshop, please get some more. And then put them on sale immediately.

3. My ring obsession might never end. Or at least not while designers are creating items like this at great prices on Etsy.

2. I love this industrial light for my studio space. And by studio space, I do mean the large portion of my shared living space that I am taking up with my sewing equipment. Anyway, this lamp would be a great addition. If it wasn’t sold already. Sigh.

1. Mulberry has kicked the whimsy up a notch this fall with their Where the Wild Things Are- inspired photo shoot.

Ninesday.

9. Thanks, Kelsey. I’m completely in love with this quote you found.

“Loneliness is black coffee and late-night television; solitude is herb tea and soft music. Solitude, quality solitude, is an assertion of self-worth, because only in the stillness can we hear the truth of our own unique voices.”     -Pearl Cleage

8. I am completely and utterly in love. With plaid pants. You’ve cleaned out my bank account again, Anthro.

7. Twitter. It’s where I’ve been keeping my rage, as of late.

6. I’ve decided to make a large investment in my future–while a camera would be great for blogging, I find myself constantly missing sewing. And as I make things, the excitement feeds into more things. I’m researching industrial sewing machines as we speak.

5. I am wasting days on Pinterest, as of late. And I don’t even feel bad about it. Come pin things with me.

4. I want want want want this Heirloom Seed Kit. Someone drop $50 and make my day?

3. Allison and I had a movie-date last week, thanks to Netflix. We watched a 1960s French film, Une femme est une femme, which was fantastic. There were so many quotable moments & the style of the film was inspiring. I’m giving it a full five stars. Check it out.

“Is it a comedy or tragedy?”

“You never know with women.”

2. I am so obsessed with The Freedom Experiment’s list:

55 Gentle Ways to Take Care of Yourself.

1. I’m too caught up in number two to finish this list. Sweet, sweet bliss.
