However, unlike the Executioner, this is not a list of those who won’t be missed. In fact, it’s a list of stores some fellow plurkers thought have been missed. So…. list in hand I went off shopping and found some real treasures – and believe me, I will go back to those stores in the future. I used some items from that shopping trip to pull together this fun outfit including the truly magnificent plaid pants, or should I say pantz, from Nomine. I added an old blouse from Street Magic and a waistcoat that was sent to me by Ayumi back in May but that I didn’t even notice until last night – a sad reflection on the state of my inventory.
I added these lovely Soho Leathers boots from Maitreya – a lovely Blogger Appreciation week gift.
The necklace and earrings are from the delightfully named Elizabeth Tinsley’s Frippery on Oubliette island. I have to say that Saiyge Lotus of Balderdash suggested her as a wonderful jewelry whose work is seldom seen or more plainly, one jewelry designer is suggesting another deserves attention – the polar opposite of the stereotype of fashionistas, but in my experience that sort of generosity and sense of community is more common than the stereotype is.
The most striking find for me was Discord Designs where there’s a vast array of hair that you will not find anywhere else. For men, there’s beard and other facial hair. Most striking, though, is the high quality African hair from from the short, close-shaven natural to the most extravagant cornrows, braids, and dreads. I was amazed by the high quality braids since so many have difficulty getting such tight, small braids. It took me awhile to choose, though of course, since dreads have religious and spiritual significance and my personal belief is that wearing religious and/or spiritual icons that are not my own is a form of culturual appropriation, I only admire the quality of the dreads and didn’t buy any.
