The Material Girls had this really cute dobby-like cotton that I simply could not resist. A japanese print, it's just the ticket with these snaps I purchased from the Snap Source people. You guys every heard of the Snap Setter? I had heard about it before and was very interested in seeing a demonstration for it in person. For me, it did not disappoint. If you've ever tried to apply a snap to a blouse before - and I have - using the crummy Dritz plier tool is for the birds. Love snaps? Get this tool! So easy to use, so genius and they make every color and type of snap you could ever want plus they have varying sizes of snaps - a real bonus, in my opinion. Who doesn't want to make a button up shirt with snaps? This is totally Everyday Wardrobe approved! I'm planning to possibly carry this tool with selection of snaps in the future in the shop, so look for those in the nearish future.
Mendel Goldberg Fabrics, based out of New York. If you only knew how long I've been looking for a Chanel style boucle, you would have stopped dead in your tracks, like I did, when I saw what this booth had to offer. You guys, this IS Chanel boucle, not just Chanel style. Yeah. I've wanted one of those Chanel jackets for forevah! I'm not going to lie and say this wasn't expensive, because it was, but I'm sooooooo in love with this fabric. As if it wasn't enough that I actually found my long lost boucle soul mate, Gertie and I went halvsies on this silk and cotton brocade. Sooooooo amazingly gorgeous! Mendel Goldberg also has a swatch service and because these types of fabrics are truly kind of a rare find, if you too, have had visions of a Chanel jacket lined in quilted silk charmeuse with a chain weighted hem whilst sleeping, you absolutely must call and get some swatches. The ladies running the booth were fabulous!
