well, live and learn…but don’t give up!!

i was trying to increase my following, give a free product that i love, all the while support the MIUSA movement.  

somewhere along the way (perhaps many) i screwed up.

nobody…that is correct, not one person signed up for my give-away (in case you missed it, it was embarrasingly: http://madelokal.tumblr.com/post/91941624758/madelokal-paper-giveaway-i-love-lists-even.  

failure just makes me try harder sometimes, so i have not given up yet. 

if you are still reading, thank you for bearing with me.

people from seattle say you can always tell a tourist by those who carry or use an umbrella.  jeff has been looking for a good rain jacket.  i think freemanseattle has some really great looking options.  i love the drawstring’s pop of color!

i had tagged this onsie by eleventy-five thinking it might come in handy at some point.  my colleague at work is having a baby and i’m going to try to put a little care package together for her while she waits at home on bed rest.  wouldn’t this be a cute addition?

jeff took me to the savekhaki store, introducing me to this mens casual mecca to shop ‘made in the usa’.  i had pinned some of their items from barneysny, but was delighted to see the product in person.  wherever you shop them, this brand is a great basic weekend or casual menswear line.  
save khaki’s reasonable prices make this line a no-brainer.
