Foxes, Velcro and Cherry Red Fingers: Friday I’m In Love

Project with which we wish we had come up: A Little Gray and Skirt As Top have partnered in a monthly feature called Film Petit. I’ll let Jessica from A Little Gray explain…Me and my blogger friend Kristin pick a movie that we like each month, (something a little offbeat and not necessarily kid friendly) and make clothes for our kids inspired by the characters. We’ve only done three so far- Life Aquatic, Amelie, and Fantastic Mr. Fox- but we plan on doing them for a long time. You can find them on my blog here and on her blog here. And the mini Drive jacket that inspired the whole series is here. We are definitely looking to get into some Tarantino and Coen Brothers territory soon.

Thing which I acquired and utterly adore: Why a pretty Fall red manicure, of course. I’m a simple gal. This makes me feel very pretty and happy.
