When I saw the first picture I exclaimed, “I have a pug nose!”  To which MM replied, “You didn’t know?”  Evil Moustache Man.  I’ve since added him to my list.

This Twenty8Twelve dress is incredibly intricate:  the high collar detaches, the front buttons peak out of the placket, and the side seams are corseted.  But the belt is retarded.  It could go around 2 1/2 times around the waist, can’t fit through all the belt loops and is messy.  I’m just going to double the damn thing up so it goes around once.  Then the dress will be just pefect.

This outfit is meant for which of the following: a heroic adventure, video game con, or eating pizza?  If you know me well enough, the answer will be a cinch.  Hint.

Dementor II

Style Bubble recently posted about an online gallery, Out of print! featuring David James.  I had no idea who he was, but discovered that I’m familiar with his work on Prada ad campaigns.  Remember Amber Valleta doing a watery Ophelia in ’97?  That was David James.  But my favorite is this 60’s inspired campaign.  His other work includes CD covers, Prada invites, and AnOther editorials.  It’s an impressive collection of art and definitely worth seeing.

I’m back indoors because I didn’t think I could be spooky in front of an audience.  The belt is an army surplus find that probably isn’t a belt.  Moustache Man and I browsed through one in our neighborhood (apparently it’s been in movies) because I wanted some camo underpants and I came across a stack of these leather contraptions.  I tried it on and voila, a badass belt.  In hindsight, we should have asked the owner what it was, but hindsight is 20/20.  I almost prefer that we don’t know because it adds a mystique and things are better when they’re mystical.
