I wouldn’t say it’s *the* most awesome, but it’s in the top 10.

Today’s Reason I Love the Internet: Advanced Style
“I am tired of the cult of youth. The cultural rejection of old age, the stigmatization of wrinkles, grey hair, of bodies furrowed by the years. I am fascinated by Diana Vreeland, Georgia O’Keeffe and Louise Bourgeois, women who have let time embrace them without ever cheating. Society today condemns this, me, I celebrate it.” - Tom Ford


Cool!

Pokemon Theme Tune sung as a 90’s R&B slow jam

Postmodern Jukebox is my favorite. They’re doing a new series called Saturday Morning Slow Jams reimagining Saturday/Sunday morning cartoon themes as 90’s R&B . Cannot wait to see what next Saturday’s is.

It’s both verses too!

I wasn't kidding about the trenchcoat addiction

  • Summer: doooooooooooooo I hear the words "you should make a trenchcoat"?
  • Snail: ...
  • Snail: <<; Maybe.
  • Summer: Step 1: go ogle Simplicity, McCall's, Vogue, and Butterick patterns until you find one that you, personally, want.
  • Summer: Step 2: tell me your measurements so I can figure out which size range you are
  • Summer: Step 3: wait for patterns to go on sale
  • Summer: Step 4: wait, possibly forever, for me to find fabric and/or get around to it
  • Snail: pff
  • Snail: Don't you own like two billion trenchcoat patterns already?
  • Snail: Oh, but we're way different sizes.
  • Summer: and also you keep not letting me buy more trenchcoat patterns
  • Snail: You keep consulting me!
  • Snail: I'm not your mom or your bank. I can't make you not buy trenchcoat patterns.
  • Summer: you keep saying things like "you own an identical pattern" and "will you ever realistically use this"
  • Summer: it's quite discouraging
  • Summer: because of you, I do not have a large enough pile of trenchcoat patterns to sleep on.

Not that I have the money to be spending on this stuff anyway, so there’s no good reason to be looking too hard, but does anyone know where to find one of the following:

1. an iridescent dark blue/green trenchcoat

2. water resistant iridescent dark blue/green fabric

See I own this:

and you really can’t tell in these awful photos, but the fabric looks like this:

(this image is from www.puresilks.us)

I picked it up in a thrift store a few years ago for not a whole lot, as it was just the shell of a fancy raincoat. Still, I really like using it as a light jacket, and am especially fond of the fabric’s colors. The only problem is that it’s actually too small for me. It fits okay so long as I don’t try to button it up, but I certainly couldn’t fasten it across the chest the way it’s meant to be fastened.

I went so far as to track down the company that made my jacket and ask them about it, but it’s not a line they make anymore and it turns out buying their stuff new is ridiculously expensive anyway. Nobody else seems to make a similar jacket, and even looking for the same kind of fabric didn’t turn anything up- the only ones I could find with the same visual effect were silks, which are neither water resistant nor remotely in my price range. (It would be worth finding the fabric because I have a friend who not only sews, but has something of an addiction to trenchcoat patterns. She might be amenable to alteration/commission work, and even if she wasn’t/it was out of my price range, she might help me not utterly destroy my jacket if I tried to alter it myself.)

This isn’t something I actually need and I don’t really expect tumblr to have answers for me, nor do I suppose any of my followers are interested in/entertained by this post, but I figure it doesn’t do any harm.

(I’m probably just going to sew up one of the sets of buttonholes, transfer the buttons to the edge of the coat, and make it button up that way. Not as cozy or as pretty, but it’ll work.)
