One of my favorite designers is Krista Larson. I think the first time I saw her clothes was in one of my favorite shops in Mystic Ct. called Whyevernot ( sorry no web site) an eclectic store full of unusual items from painted furniture to greeting cards. It's like the modern day general store but oh so much cooler.
In the back section of the store they have some of the best clothing ever. They are not inexpensive but they run sales all the time. I've been able to get them occasionally on Ebay and have been really happy with what I've gotten. I have been a good girl lately and haven't even looked on Ebay in months. You can really get addicted to it so as of the beginning of this year I've sworn off even looking. I remember the first time I bid on something I was so nervous my heart was beating so fast. I got such an adrenaline rush. I won the first thing I ever bid on. I thought that's not so bad.Then the second time I bid on something I thought I was going to win. I bid up until the last 5 minutes, when went back to work and came back a few minutes later to find I was outbid by a $1.00. I was so mad, but since then I've realized that happens all the time. I'd gotten pretty good at it for awhile. That was the problem I was becoming one of those people who gets packages in the mail almost everyday...you know the QVC people.( Oops I hope I'm not describing anyone out there). Sorry!!! Most of the things were for selling in the shop at Christmas time. Got lots of vintage Christmas ornaments. Don't need any more of those for awhile!
Well anyways ......back to Krista
These are pictures of me ...no just kidding. I got these off her site. It's called Blue Polly which is her online site where she also sells jewelry and shoes from other artists.
Some of her outfits remind me of prairie clothing...or Little House on the Prairie.....though I don't think Mary Ingles wore anything that nice.
This collage was from the site so you're probably wondering why there's a picture of a dog in the 3rd frame. Apparently Krista's a big dog lover and owns a few dogs.
I love this shirt with all the pleats. The raw edging. I love the quirkiness of her clothes......the folds
Check out the fabric flower pin!
They're kind of my dream clothes. I have only a couple of pieces but I treasure them and whether anyone compliments me or not I always feel a little special wearing it......and isn't that what it's all about?????
Who's your favorite designer????
