the impossible cool.

December 11th, 2009 · 3 Comments

“You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.”

-Winston Churchill



Last night I discovered the impossible cool — a blog devoted to a cast of characters who effortlessly epitomize the enviable adjective. Its founder originally intended to keep the blog going for exactly one year, highlighting a different person each day without repetition. Well, that didn’t last, there were just too many cool photos to pass up. And now that I’ve spent the good part of an evening scrolling through the collection, I’m glad they decided to stick around.


Serge and Jane.

    What I admire is that you acltaluy used the Marimekko fabric. I still have some I bought, oh, let’s see . a million years ago. I hang on to it because if I use it, it will be gone. (Hoarder tendencies?)BTW re buttonholes. Here’s a little tip. If you put a little patch of iron-on mending tape behind the buttonhole before you cut it, it will make it much less likely to fray or tear open. You can just use a few stitches to finish the hole neatly. Or, probably, even skip the stitching, though it would still fray a little bit over time.

    OMFG I know. I’ve been dying to do this for absolute ages. I’m just glad the cocnept managed to catch on enough here in Korea that I’ll have the chance. I mean, even out here in Jersey! Also, welcome back! I hope your trip was amazing.

    I have to agree with some of the other posters – I know you have a lot on your plate, but please dump some of the 1642 stuff for a Mother of Demons Sequel!! I freaking loved that book and since its on the free library i’ve been making everyone I talk books with read it. 😉 -Alison
