Well hey, it’s been a long time since I’ve done a TumbleDryLow post, but here is something worthy of consumption!
My dear friend and bandmate, Miss Kristen Adam, has launched Rococonouveau Design.
For as long as I can remember I’ve felt a particular connection to things of the past: vintage and period fashions, early 20th century classic film, vintage erotica & pinup photography, art deco architecture, art nouveau textiles & jewelry, and the gilded splendour of the rococo era. The goal in all my work on this project is to merge the essence of these core inspirations with the modernity of the 21st century. Thereby preserving the beauty of these bygone styles in a way that is relevant to today’s aesthetics. Hence, the name rococonouveau!
She makes these super rad little collar accessories that are the perfect thing to dress up an outfit, or lack thereof!
I had the privilege of modeling a bunch of these collars, along with a whole bunch of my sassy ladyfriends.
You should go visit her shop and get one of these. They’re reversible and super well made.
I recently got a new pair of glasses from the excellent folks at Phoenix Optical.
They’re the only place I’ve ever been to that has a full selection of vintage deadstock frames on hand, as well as a bunch of newer styles to choose from.
There are tons of resources online with vintage frames, but nothing beats being able to see how something looks on you.
Since your specs live on your face, it’s clear that buying them is not a decision to be taken lightly.
The staff was super helpful and helped me find exactly what I was looking for.
They were a little pricey, but well worth it for the experience.
Do you guys have a fav place for frames? Online or in person?
Show me your specs!
