Stories & Folklore

With freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy?

The theme for Collabor88 this month is StoryTime and the creations showcased are a rich display of folkloric traditions and influences. There is a lot of embroidery, a lot of beautiful colors and rich traditional fabrics. Sissy Pessoa ran with the idea into a more modern direction with this gown and capelet. It has all the traditional flower forms, but the dress itself is quite modern and made even more so in the sheer version.

It’s Only Fashion Is Back

Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.

Our web site was down. Somehow there was a virus in the database. Is that not the strangest thing? I don’t know if that would affect readers or not, but thankfully it’s been fixed.

I shot these pictures last week. I was still shocked by the Orwellian phrase “alternate facts” that in a healthy society would completely discredit the people who promote them. But, since people no longer distinguish between fact and opinion, alternate facts seem to be growing. Aldous Huxley, though, had the right idea. “Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.”

And bring your dollies three

“It's too cold outside for angels to fly.”

Blueberry / Show Time / Maitreya – Nel Shoe

Hey, hey, oh playmate,
Come out and play with me
And bring your dollies three
Climb up my apple tree

Slide down my rain barrel
Into my cellar door
And we’ll be jolly friends
Forever more, more, more.

“It's too cold outside for angels to fly.”

A Mind of Their Own

Don't worry about the smallest size that light can be, it will chase away the darkness

The damn lights have a mind of their own. I picked them up at Collabor88, the newest release from Maxi Gossamer and they just insist on going everywhere. They’re all in a tangle and I need to untangle them before I can decorate.

Of course, if you’re decorating the outside of your house, you need a smoking hot coat like this one from Mutresse. It comes with a color-change HUD that is stuffed with 20 colors that you can use to customize the turtleneck sweater, the zips, the collar, the lapel, the pockets and the jacket body and bodice. Such control gives you exactly what you want. It, too, is at Collabor88.

Subtlety

“Remembering. Forgetting. I'm not sure which is worse.”

I like subtle shifts in tone. As much as I love rich saturated colors, I also love the neutral tans, beiges, and ecrus. The ALT Cadet Dress comes with a color change HUD that lets me choose bold colors or subtle ones. I gravitated toward the subtle this time.

A Sound of Thunder

A Sound of Thunder

There was a downpour yesterday, raining so heavy that at times it looked like it was dark out during the day. While it was cold, grim, and miserable outside, inside was warm with food, friendship, and the fellowship of good company. Countering the gray, cloudy rain, there was a bright yellow sun in the form of this lovely minidress from Decoy for Collabor88.
