the sophisticate a new blog to me that is so inspiring. Sofi blogs about fashion, activism, politics, ets, - a lifestyle blogazine -and in her words " working on inspiring people-particularly younger girls-into becoming strong, independent and active individuals" Her pics are great, her writing is thoughtful and hec...this girl just has it going on! I urge you to check her out.
An article I found interesting this week via the New York Times was a photo documentation of the deterioration of Coney Island. I am fascinated by vintage 50's signs and typography - not just for the style but for a reminder of times past. Nathan Kensinger documents the Playland arcade opened in 1935 and closed in 1982. You can find the article here with a link to his blog....hope you are as interested as I am!
Enjoy the weekend...I would love to hear your thoughts on these two new sites!
p.s. (I took the above photo to document a vintage sign in my hometown) and I will be back with some fabulous fabrics just in waiting to be transformed!
