anthropologie gets it

Have you seen the new "Project Needle and Thread" over at Anthropologie? It's such a visual feast - you must head over and have a look for yourselves!

I think we mavens of handmade have been making so much behind-the-scenes fashion noise that Anthropologie heard us. This collection is brimming with hand-stitched, hand-knit, and hand-appliqu├ęd details. It's overflowing with inspiration.

I just need to clarify a few things, here. I am no fashionista. Most of the time I frump about in a green, bleach-stained zip-up sweatshirt from Katmai Lodge in Alaska. It even sports a machine embroidered trout. Call me uber-frump, call me whatever you like - I live in rural Mexico. I would look SO ridiculous wearing the above sweaters around town down here.

But please do call me an Amelie Poulin wannabe. I've mentioned this before - my absolute love of all things Amelie. Haircut? Check. Soundtrack playing almost all the time? Check. French? Check. Red wine? Check. Cat named Amelie? Check. Like slipping my hand into a barrel of beans? Check. Really cute, shy personality? Not so much. Clothing? Working on it.

I think I'll go peruse the Anthropologie on-line mag once again ...

Have a great weekend!

Meg, I wish I could buy you whatever you wanted!! You would look great in these (instead of the sweatshirt!)... I love anthropologie! And the fact that they value handsewn clothing just shows their genius.

Your blog is a recent discovery for me - I adore it! Great inspiration both educational and crafty.

Found the Anthropologie catalog in the mail yesterday....so you in any venue!

Mom P.S. Wasn't that a great trip to the Katmai???

Meg I think you have the Amelie haircut down pretty good, eh?
I can't look at Anthropolgie - too tempting..now I look at Forever 21 - which is the dumbest name - and luckily I'm not walking into an actual store by that name, just looking online.
Good cotton tunics and babydoll tops.

the simple-jumper dress seems so much "amelie look".
i love amelie too, i would dress myself and my baby girl like amelie, and go stroller in the "rue" of paris.
but, i live in turin, italy.
not so bad, at all.
i-adore-your-blog! you are a great creator, really, i am impressed by your fantasy!
and, of course, a great teacher...
in italy montessori's method is not so known and apllied.
btu, i studied maria and her methond during a course, and i love her inventive and her way to teach.i think she is very modern...
so, i try to apply some parts of the metod to grown my kids.
happy week to you!

I love these sweaters, too! SO MUCH! Wish we all had endless pocket books! We can always dream and browse, right!

I like to make stuff! said...

I have just watched Amelie on Friday night and thought it was wonderful! What a coincidence.
With you on the clothes too, but I am determined to change and to dress more creatively. Am going to start making my own clothes!
