This is not a test

This is not a test . . . this is not a test . . . this is not a dress . . .

I’m not mad, the sun’s just in my eyes.  I couldn’t help participating in a DIY Jil Sander veiled beanie with some online guidance from honestly wtf and nitrolicious.  The only thing I did different was to trim off the end of the veil netting . . . the thick black thread was too contrasty.

This is the perfect accessory for me right now.  I’m in the awkward process of growing out my hair and not only does the beanie hide my lack of haircut/style, but holds my bangs out of my eyes and allows me to see.  The past few weeks made me realize I’ve taken sight for granted.  P sez seeing is overrated.  Then he bumped into a wall.

I’ve been feeling peplumy . . . my latest craving is a skirt pant.  Until I find the one, I guess I’ll have to improvise.  Victoria Bartlett would be so proud.

New shop posts . . . and more to come.  To check it out click me!

I finally caved and started a twitter.  Follow me!

alley cat

This dress would have been perfect for my prom.  I don’t usually wear prints, but I’ve become fond of trompe-l’oeil . . . especially when it’s as clever as this one.  Central Saint Martins grads James Woolfin and Yvette White, expertly make ‘deceit of the eye’ graphic using black and white prints and experimenting with imperfect textures.  A loose thread or an open zipper may not be ideal in reality, but in a photographic form becomes art.

Moustache Man and I found a gem of a photo op with several shot possibilities.  Of course we were crestfallen when security came and busted us.  Private property, schmoperty.

Elephant Revival

L left little notes in a book she gave me and I knew this was the perfect time to share this one:

“Considered a rebellious garment associated with anti-war sympathizers, bellbottoms were shut out of many stores in their early years. Desperate for the style, teens took to creating their own bellbottom jeans. By slicing open the outer side seam to about knee height, you could insert a triangular addition, a gusset, into the side seam and create your own belled denim jean. This alteration created another craze, and bellbottoms ballooned out with fabric gussets of velvet or Indian batik, or even more denim. These outrageous widths were known as elephant bells. The ‘bell’ evolved into the late 70’s flares, and experienced a revival in the 90’s both as a retro fashion and as a modern update with the big bells of the rave culture. 

But sorry, Navy men, your splashy uniform no longer includes these functional, stylish pants.”
