Dear Ones — I’m selling my beautiful perfect house. Why? Because I’m a restless person and I need to move all the time. It’s time to move, then! Otherwise, there is no sane reason to sell this exquisite and lovingly renovated “four-over-four” Italianate Victorian house that was built in 1869 by the great-grandson of John Reading (the first governor of New Jersey and a hero of the Revolutionary War.)

Sturtevant, Uncompromising Progenitor of Appropriation Art, Has Died:
Sturtevant, whose repetitions of now-iconic Pop and Minimal artworks in the 1960s anticipated the rise of appropriation art more than a decade later and formed the core of one of the most radical and beguiling artistic practices of the past 50 years, has died in Paris. Artforum confirmed the news.

WORD | Seven Sisters Style

by Lizzie

Hold all my calls. I'll be reading Seven Sisters Style: The All-American Preppy Look ($35) by Rebecca C. Tuite for the rest of the day. It hit the book stores just this morning, and I'm quite certain it will be a classic style title for years to come. The author is a Vassar grad and fashion historian and we have been corresponding for years now on the subject of tomboys, American style, preppy culture, books, and countless other items. I can't say enough great things about Ms. Tuite who came to this project in such an honest and passionate way. In fact, in June of 2011, when her book was tentatively titled Vassar Style (a title still forthcoming!), she published one her interviews on Tomboy Style, and I've been anxiously awaiting her book ever since. The final result of her research is a thorough definition and celebration of a truly iconic American style, from saddle shoes to Shetland sweaters to the inherent spirit of the Seven Sister student. Each page is a journey through time.

"...A new epitome of the American Girl emerged. She was sharp as a tack, au courant, and brimming with youthful athleticism and vigor, and no women were bringing this ideal to life more than the Seven Sisters students, who gradually discovered an emerging sartorial freedom, a passionate interest in sports, and a penchant for masculine, athletic details in their trailblazing college attire." —Rebecca C. Tuite in an excerpt from Seven Sisters Style: The All-American Preppy Look.

Trivia question: Can you name all of the Seven Sister schools? Answer listed below the last photo.








The Seven Sister Schools: Barnard, Bryn Mawr, Mount Holyoke, Radcliffe, Smith, Vassar, Wellesley.

SCENE | The Starting Line, Milan 1952.

by Lizzie

Photo of the Paris team (above) and the Dauphiné team (below) on the starting line for a women's scooter race in Milan, Italy, held on June 9, 1952. 

The circuit covered a distance of 260km (161 miles) and included 117 competitors from Belgium, Italy, France and Switzerland. This was its first ever women's-only event. I couldn't find if the race continued or for how long, but what a great intersection of style and sport.
