vintage thursday: Aubergine.

aubergine--aubergine--aubergine.  for those of you located in the bay area, you are in luck.  Aubergine: Vintage Emporium located, in Sebastopol and San Rafael is an amazing find!  The store in Sebastopol is housed in a 10,000 sq. foot building that was formerly an apple processing plant.  They have a massive array of clothes/shoes for both men and women, no furniture but they do have a section dedicated to rugs and linens.  On my most recent trip, this past monday I found an awesome wool plaid pencil skirt for $12.00.  Unfortunately, they do not have e-commerce set up but do have a bar and cafe attached to it.  Does it get any better?

Honor by Giovanna Randall

Thank you Emmadimes for showing me my latest obsession.  Honor by Giovanna Randall is a newbie to the fashion world, headquartered in the garment district of NYC.  Giovanna is an opera singer turned head fashion designer for Honor (which is named after her sister).  The images below are from the pre-fall 2012 collection.  I wasn't a big fan of the red-pink color scheme, but i would wear the Honor compilation any day.  The clothes are whimsical, yet classic.  Bravo Honor!
