Hector Needs Your Help!

(via Unica Home, currently selling for $305)

Once upon a time, a girl named Ashley found herself working as assistant buyer in a glamorous boutique in a very posh suburb of New York City. This girl, at still a young age, attended big-name runway shows and had her picture snapped by The Sartorialist (!); but this was still work, and as such, Ashley traveled to far-off fashion capitals like Milan and Paris to select next season's wares with the boutique's owner.

On one such trip to Milan, Ashley met a handsome Italian named Hector, a product of the House of Missoni. From across a crowded flagship store, Hector caught Ashley's eye. She had to have him. She couldn't return to New York without him, having now glimpsed such beauty.

And like that, Ashley and Hector lived happily ever after. Ashley's life changed significantly following Hector's arrival. She quit her job in fashion, decided to return to graduate school, and moved to Philadelphia.

Here is where we find ourselves, dear readers.
Let me introduce you to Hector, my beloved Italian.

Isn't he handsome?
Unfortunately, time hasn't been good to Hector. He's aged rapidly, especially in the last year.

Hector developed an acute blanket tear, which means he needs to be seen by a masterful surgeon (of sorts) so he can return to prime condition.

I know these images are hard to look at (they certainly are for me), but I need your help to find a cure for what ails my dearest Hector.

How do I go about repairing Hector's wounds?
Is he done for?

In lieu of flowers, please send any advice or recommendations for Hector's swift recovery.


  1. Oh Ashley, so sorry!! He's beautiful and I never knew you had a background in fashion. I wish I had a recommendation...If I hear of anything I'll let you know. Just curious...what are you studying in grad school??

  2. Fran, I'm actually done now--I went to Penn for my Master's in Education. I'm currently working at Penn in a very non-design-y job because education, like design, is one of my passions (sorry for the long winded answer!).

  3. Hmmm a knitting specialist? Maybe if you contact Missoni they could give you answers? If they reply at all....

  4. Not done for! NEVER! send him to a sweater repair place, they will fix him right up.


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
