J. Peterman catalog

[all images]

I received a J. Peterman catalog in the mail, and the travel and fashion lover in me was instantly intrigued. The company offers unique pieces for both men, women and home that were picked up from all over the world.

The products aren't shown as typical photographs either. Instead, they're lovely hand-drawings with cleverly detailed product descriptions. Most of the items are probably for a bit older crowd, but the concept is interesting nonetheless. The prices are fairly reasonable, too. Here are a few of my favorite items...

-Above photo, 'The King' English Pub sign, $850. It's one of the pricier items, but it'd be a cool conversation piece.
-'Carnival in Venice Mask,' $138. If you can't get to Venice, bring Venice to you!
-'Bali-Time Rose Caftan,' $79. I love the description of this, "When they return home in the evening, they take off the western garb, put on a caftan (yes, the men too), and immediately sink into what they proudly call, 'Rubber Time.'"
-'30's Derby Dress,' $179. This dress is so pretty and summery. It'd go perfectly with a mint julep.

-'Picasso at Vallauris Shirt,' $44. If it's good enough for Pablo Picasso, it's certainly good enough for the rest of us!

-'Italian Spectator Shoes,' $198. These Italian brogues come in men or women's versions. I'm glad that oxford shoes are still going strong for fall.

  1. I have been eyeing the women's spectator's for about two months now. I want them like a drug but cannot bring myself to pull out the platis. SO EXPENSIVE!!!! I keep telling myself that I am worth it, and I SOOO love the kate hepburn era fashions ( of course she wouldof owned these )...Anyone have them? can I get a real picture of them? 8-)
