Bonnie from the UK wanted to know where to get this fabulous octopus....I snapped this picture at Hewitt in Wilmington, N.C. You can call them at 910-202-4657
It is funny that Bonnie just e-mailed me about this, because last night a friend and I went to a Spring Fashion Show at Hewitt and I had a ball. If you stop by the store, tell Abe & Beth I said hello. Also there was Kelly from Beanie & Cecil a fabulous clothing store next door. I finally got up my courage and bought a pair of skinny jeans. Really they are leggings with pockets. If I am brave enough to actually wear them I will warn you in advance.
For those of you who asked, this fabric is Apsley Vine from Greeff. I bought mine from a wonderful seller on Ebay. Brick House Fabrics. If you are interested, I believe she may have a few more yards. (There is a tiny chance the colors may not work in the room I bought the fabric for, so if my Ebay seller is all out, e-mail me and I'll let you know if it doesn't work)
I know you have been holding your breath about the jacket debate. I spent yesterday trying on different jackets. Several of you asked, so here's the deal. The one pictured above that most of you liked from American Eagle? In person it was dreadful. Horrible. Cheap and thin and not at all what I expected from this photo. Oh, the power of a good photographer. Next stop the Gap. It was just O.K. The J.Crew store here in the big city of Wilmington did not have the jacket. Surprise. It is a very small store. The one I liked the best? Old Navy. They had a great jacket that looked so much like the J. Crew jacket that my hands got sweaty. And it was on sale. And, they didn't have my size. SO typical. It is no longer online, but my sister is looking in Atlanta. Cross your fingers. If she can't find it, I might bite the bullet and order the J Crew jacket now that I am obsessed and feel like this one jacket could change my life. It's like the time I knew life would be perfect if I got the Guess jeans with the buttons. And I was right. All was good in my world. I still have those jeans in my attic in case I want to relive the 80's. Do you ever get like that? Am I the only crazy one?
