This former model for M.A.C. works it for the camera.


This Alexis Bittar butterfly necklace reminds us how ephemeral the end of summer is.

She's Crafty, She's Just My Style: Philly Jewelry on Etsy





Elegant homage to the original Postal Service. Snail mail is never out of style!





2. Liberty Bell Charm, by Starodyssey


This silver replica of the Cracked One is tiny enough to be cute, not cheezy.





3. THE WINNER! PBR Cufflinks, by rotorcaps


Philly local Jen Roder's $150 silver-and-bottle-cap cufflinks immortalize the hipster brew with a wry sense of humor.

Moda Delirium: Once More with Photos

Shooting photos at Moda Delirium was no easy task. First of all, my old trusty camera (acquired circa 2002) chose that afternoon to die a tragic death and I was forced to borrow a replacement from my housemate Dave. Dave's camera was way more sophisticated, but unfortunately, I hadn't the time to explore its functionality and I spent half the show searching for night mode. Second, I'm on the short side and ended up being sandwiched in the back of the crowd, which meant a good many of my attempts to capture the models on the runway resulted in nice, focused shots of the back of some dude's head. Nonetheless, a few of the shots were salvageable.

Moda Delirium at Valanni, 5/3/07


Ruby slippers: too chic for Kansas

For once, both halves of le Face were at the same event! However, the good shots currently reside with the one who isn't posting this. Watch for them.

The show not only had a dancing girl in a box (!), but the designing talents of Melanie Stedje, as well as two of the fabulous founders of Topstitch, Francesca Sloan and Linda Smyth.

OKGo with Downtown Harvest at the TLA, 5/1/07

We have to admit it,
OKGo is the best-dressed band we've ever seen live.
Clearly, that's their shtick, but it works!

From their acoustic set on the floor. (They played "A Million Ways" with a xylophone!)


The tie pin!
We only wonder how hard it is to keep your suits clean on tour.

The audience was almost as snazzy:

On the Street: 15th and Market, 4/18/07

When I spotted this young lady on 15th and Market we were both searching for something. I was searching for the entrance to the green line (obscurred by the construction) and she was seraching for a hot cup of tea. After shooting her photo I pointed her in the direction of La Colombe, but I was disoriented from my subway-searching, and the street sign on Market Street was off-kilter, and I'm afraid I pointed her the wrong way. I hope she found her cup of tea!

Feedshion: eye candy instant gratification

Feedshion is a self-updating page that constantly scrounges the newest shots from several different fashion blogs, Faceadelphia included.

Mildly addictive.

Reading Terminal Market, 4/15/07


I'm not sure what's better on a rainy day: doubling your hoodies to stay warm, or the plethora of fresh treats at RTM.
