I'm more than a little bit obsessed with the badass style of my Sidewalk Style subject this week.

We're all familiar with designer collaborations at this point: Isaac Mizrahi for Target, Comme des Garcons for H&M....the upcoming Hayden-Harnett collab at Target (see my Sidewalk Style this week). Perhaps it's a stretch to compare them, but it is exciting to announce that a great local shop has announced a collaboration of its own: Glazer for listopad (their blog is here, and they have a pop-up shop on weekends @Mercedes Bien which is upstairs next to Amsterdam Falafel in Adams Morgan).

The line will debut at a launch party December 10 from 6-9 at Napoleon Bistro. Expect Glazer's limited-edition prints on everything from dresses to jackets to tees for both men and women, with prices somewhere in the $25-$75 range. More information to come, but mark ye calendars.

Perhaps PB will score some of the first images...

Glazer's work seems informed by nature, an appreciation for the things that often go unnoticed, and the artful way both rural and urban settings haphazardly-but-perfectly construct themselves. It reminded me to post some images I took during a recent trip home to Lexington (Virginia, not Kentucky). These were taken on the Chessie Trail, a trail that used to be a railroad that I've been walking for as long as I can remember. It was a perfect sun-streaked warm autumn day, and the air was so clean and earthy-toasty smelling and it was so quiet and I just felt, and feel, so grateful to have that in my life.

Tyra is making a cameo at a charity fashion show thingie on Friday! Except no wait, it's actually a wax Tyra from Madame Tussaud's! But still!

Ugh. I do not get it. Anyway, this show benefits Hoop Dreams. If anyone goes, tell Tyra to work it...just not anywhere near a heater.

Feathered Find

I'm loving these handmade feather headbands from local etsy designer FeatherBrain, who names each style after a famous jazz musician (this is a detail shot of the Gillespie...which was apparently worn in an episode of Gossip Girl). I'm totally hooked, and there are so many cute feather options (not to mention headband color choices) that I can't decide which design I like the most! These would make a gorgeous finish to an outfit, and really, they're perfect for these chilly fall days when you want to look cute but your outfit is covered up by a coat.
