Not Your Grandma’s Porcelain Doll



I love how the ultra modern shape of this jacket with its extreme shoulder and the bold, urban cut of the pants with  zippered legs are merged with the ultimate in delicacy and tradition, the ancient art of  blue and white porcelain. When a designer can take such dichotomous threads and weave them into a coherent design, that’s magic.

Pop vs. Soda


The Soda Pop Dress from Deco for April’s Collabor88 reminded me of the ancient cultural struggle between those who say Soda and those who say Pop and the outliers who say Coke. It’s a conflict that has been mapped and researched and will probably continue long after we all are gone. DECO’s designer sidestepped the controversy by called the dress the Soda Pop dress, showing a keen instinct for diplomacy.

Hoodoo Voodoo

July 15th_008

This cute and casual top from MEB called out to me, insisting it would be the perfect choice for showing off the short haircuts. It’s true that a boat neck with hair off the neck, whether short, in an updo or a pony always makes a gorgeous neckline. I added some comfy leggings by Pink Outfitters for the July faMESHed showcase.

Hoodoo voodoo, seven, twenty-one, two
Haystacka, hostacka, A B C
High poker, low joker, ninety-nine to zero
Sidewalk, streetcar, dance a goofy dance

Black birdy, blue jay, one, two, three, four
Trash sack, jump back, E F G
Biggy hat, little hat, fatty man, skinny man
Grasshopper, green snake, hold my hand

Hoodoo voodoo, chooka chooky choo choo
True blue, how true, kissle me now

Hair Fair 2012: Short Hair

I definitely recommend you click the slideshow and view it full-size on Flickr. I really wanted you to see all sides of the short cuts, especially the ones from MADesigns with the intricate fade cuts on the tattoo layer. MADesigns tattoo layers are modifiable. You receive a single one that you color to match your hair. All of these cuts are at Hair Fair and a portion of every hair sold goes to Wigs for Kids. I have included several men’s styles that seem to work well for women as well.

It's a Matter of Perspective


I was getting read to shoot this outfit when Gidge and I went shopping. After a bit of a spree, we headed over to Collabor88. Now I thought I had put together a pretty good outfit, but I had that affirmed with a massive compliment when out of the blue a total stranger asked if she could shoot my look for her blog. Of course I said yes! I still hadn’t settled on earrings yet, but I was close to done.

The final day of Modavia Fashion Week opened with the Dutch design house CIA from Ayla Strading in a joint presentation with Joy Laperriere of SHI. I am new to CIA and am thrilled with the introduction. I love the bright, saturated colors and definitely plan to pick up at least that black top with the floral embroidery.

There is still time, btw, those of you who LOVE Kokeshi dolls to pick up this set from DISCO DEALS. For only 99L you get a set that are tiny (see below) who float around on the water fishing. They’d be really cute if you had a pond on your parcel

You also get a larger pair, that would still be cute on a pond, I wish I had a pond on my main parcel where my house is, I love these. Continue reading
