Works great with tights and boots.
Sometimes it makes me a little sad that my kids won’t grow up with records or tapes. I remember listening to a kid-sized (maybe fisher price?) record player when I was a kid. My dad had a really nice turntable and scads of vinyl that slowly got replaced with CDs in the 80s. CD’s are disappearing. Elliot thinks it’s a novelty when we get a book on CD from the library and he gets to put it in the tray and press “play.” I think that’s part of the reason I love this print so much. Melody has this way of taking vintage items with nostalgic appeal and making them modern and fresh and exciting. This print is part of her Ruby Star Vinyl (sometimes called Ruby Star Spring 2012) collection which is in shops now. I bought it at Nido and I know it’s in stock at Pink Castle, Fabricworm, and Pink Chalk. At least two of those shops have it on sale right now (click on the sidebar for links).
More on that sleeve….soon!
