Meet Carrie Blaydes

Carrie Blaydes left her design job at Helmut Lang in New York for an uncertain future down South, with her husband.

She has just opened her eBay store, Factory Handbook Vintage. She told me she was going to donate the proceeds of a beautiful cape to the Sister Wolf Roof Fund, so I rushed over to eBay to have a look.

Not only do I want that cape myself, but everything she has is unfairly appealing and styled to perfection. Carrie is the perfect model for her vintage collection, with an old world beauty and casual elegance that can’t be faked.

Make Factory Handbook Vintage your first stop when you’re in the market for something cool.   And go see her blog to show some love!

    How awesome of her! I too am coveting that cape.

    Gosh I love that jacket at the top but I hate the feel of real fur (especially by my face). Second coat/jacket that I’ve had to ignore because of that in the last three months.

    I love the cape too. I may put in a bid if I can persuade myself that I need two capes, despite having worn the first a total of about three times. I’ll also need to keep an eye on the store.

    Sister Wolf, seriously, can you imagine how hard I’m blushing?

    Damn you’re the best. Thank you SO MUCH for the support and incredibly kind words…

    Now let’s keep our fingers crossed for our cape to enchant the world with that lipstick-red lining – after all that’s why it originally made me think of you!
