Today we take it to the runway...and to the streets..
lets talk 70's!
Apparently, 70's is where it's at according to Marc by Marc Jacobs.
So lets say hello to shiny silk blouses and mid length skirts!
But what does that mean for our interiors?
Well, lets add some pattern to our walls! Soft and silky but big and bold!
Lets add color splashes! And make it oh so fun, but oh so comfy!
But most of all, add a touch of earth with warm woods and gold details.
Lets take a look!

As you know, we love Etsy sooo very much! Today's Etsy Loves segment focusses on one seller.. Tell us a bit about yourself. I live in Brooklyn, New York, and my collection takes shape in what seems like a constant shuttling from my studio to the garment district in Manhattan. I’ve designed rompers, lingerie, gowns and hair accessories, and whenever possible I love to incorporate vintage materials. In addition to focusing on my spring 2012 collection, I’ve also been working on custom, vintage-inspired wedding gowns. Apart from creating things, what do you do? Where does your inspiration come from?
I can’t recall the exact moment I decided to launch my own womenswear line, but it started bit by bit. By spring 2010, the “Alexandra Grecco” collection had come together. Since then, I’ve been working to create quality, well-constructed pieces informed by eras that I find inspiring. I also love the idea of providing an alternative, less wasteful approach to the mass-produced fashion mainstream.
Recently, I’ve been trying to get out on my bike as much as possible. I also enjoy taking pictures with an old Nikkormat film camera that my dad bought decades ago.
I get a lot of inspiration from old movies, fashion history — especially from the Art Deco period —particular photographers (Wendy Bevan comes to mind), and sometimes just everyday things. I was also a ballet dancer growing up, and I think being surrounded by pastel tutus and sequined tiaras from a young age has permanently influenced the materials and the colors to which I’m drawn.
