Bits and Bobbins

I have been eyeing this Hemline Stationary Set from Fred Flare for over four months. Finally, with a $50 gift card in hand, I decided to take the plunge, and, on a whim, purchase not one, not two, but five sets of the seamstress influenced parchment. It just arrived, and I could not be more thrilled.

This is the most clever move in terms of office supplies that I have ever seen. Inspired by the dress patterns of the 1950’s and 1960’s that you purchased at the local five and dime, this pack features four separate paper designs ranging from sketched models wearing pillbox hats and white gloves to bouncy skirts and secretary-like ensembles; along with multi-colored envelopes and stickers depicting the necessities of a tailor – buttons, scissors, pins, pumps. This is the type of stationary I could gawk at for hours upon hours. The type of stationary that makes me feel faint of heart. The type of stationary that will be reserved only for special occasions, and special someones.

Fashionably yours!

Thanks to Fred Flare for the picture.
