Favorite Things: December 1st, 2014

Huntress Vest Knitting Pattern by Two of Wands: Two of Wands designer Alexi Tavel put her name on the map with this Katniss-inspired ready-to-wear piece and is hosting a make-along for the knitting/crochet pattern over at my day job, Kollabora. 

Tommy Hilfiger "Duck Boots": You know how there are those certain pieces you kick yourself for not buying for years after? There are two main standouts for me: a pair of grey wedge lace-ups from Dries Van Noten and these ridiculously awesome Duck Boots Tommy Hilfiger showed off for his Fall 2010 collection. And I'll continue to stalk eBay until the day these beauties become mine, no matter how long it takes. 

Junya Watanabe Patched Jeans: I love everything about these from the fit of the jean to the pattern selection for the patches. The only thing I don't love is that price tag. I guess it's time to whip out the good 'ol sewing machine.

Justin Gregory Leather Racing Gloves: These are the perfect xmas gift for my best friend who always has the best manicures and ring stacks. 

Serial Podcast: Yes, I know everyone and their mother is addicted to this podcast from the producers of This American Life but there's something about the combination of the way in which Sarah Koenig tells the story and the lack of visuals that make it so much more compelling than any video-based medium. Also, there's going to be a second season! Yay!
