Underground Love Story and My Neighbor Amy

So, I am now obsessed over a new discovery, who is from my old neighborhood in Broklyn, and whose family is also from the Carribbean: NiLea,whose label, Underground Love Story was featured in ReadyMade magazine.

She has a true sense of feminine form, an eye for fabric and detail and her dresses are just very romantic and very sweet. She was featured in ReadyMade not just yet another Hipster in Brooklyn(tm) but as a person who is working a day job and still rocking her side businesses (she also has a vintage concern, and you can find that here, at NileaP Vintage.

Another absolutely brilliant person is my neighbor Amy, who makes truly exquisite scarves, hats and purses. I went over to her house for a tea party, which was truly an afternoon cocktails party, and was privileged to purchase a very pretty scarf for fall, in jewel blue and black tones, with beading, and a wonderful knit purse, also for fall, in golds and browns and flecks of jeweling. I paid far too little, and I really, really hope that she gets on Etsy- her stuff is very fun!

And yes, my self imposed summer vacation is over. I will start blogging more about politics, about the status of my documentary, perhaps some recipes and much more, starting tomorrow.
