I received my new glasses yesterday. Although these don't look like a familiar time period, they are in fact from the 1960's. Since the color red is like black for me. (all my accessories are always red) The color of these glasses couldn't be better. As you can see They go with this hand embroidered top with ease.
Unfortunately, you can tell from this picture that the glasses make my eyes look miniature, ahah!
I'm glad my glasses came in time for my month long vacation in Europe. I'm going to Toulouse, France ( annual husbands family visit) 10 days Helsinki, Finland 6 days Riga, Latvia 3 days Tallinn, Estonia 3 days Stockholm, Sweden 6 days
I will make sure to take millions of pictures of the fashion, and try to update while I'm there.
I wear no leather, no fur things ... I found my shoes in USA for 10$ ... For me Fashion is an expression of the feelings of the moment. My look today is 1950's. Je ne porte ni cuir, ni fourrures, rien de ce qui vient des animaux. Mes chaussures à 10$ viennet des USA. Pour moi, la Mode est l'expression de mes sentiments du moment. Mon look aujourd'hui est 1950's

I'm not JUST into the darkness. One look is never enough for me.
This light as a feather look is anything but light. Its made of plush toy fabric, ostrich feathers (curlier the better), FEATHERS IN ANY FORM, pastels, rhinestones, suede, and of course faux sheep fleece. This look is like a brand new baby blanket...oh hell, why don't we just compare it to a baby shower! Just think of all the possibilities of baby showers. Satin ribbon, baby layettes, PASTEL anything, stuffed animals, blankets...oh god the list can go all night!! I myself am going to rock the light, powder look with this coat and rhinestone brooches, or a feather in my (soon to be powder blond) hair.... perhaps
Join us into the dark, yet humorous fairytale. Lets face it, Sleepy hollow and Edward Scissor Hands..... OK fine Tim Burton, has been at it for decades. I think Designers have gazed longingly enough at ghost stories and witch hunts. I personally, have always feared the cliche Gothic look or possibly stepping too far into "costume-land". Ive decided that I should no long push this look aside because I found that only a tiny bit of humor is needed to launch this look.
For example: all black + some kind of animal (and/or some kind of surface detail) = dark humor all black+solid black= cliche all black+ a jolt of color=dark humor all black+pale colors (neutrals dont count) orange + black = perfect balance of cliche and dark humor black + neutral or white=cliche black (or orange)+ futuristic silhuette=dark humor

I was making my daily route down Powell street (San Francisco) when Megan taps me on the shoulder and asks me if I could pose for a picture. You can read her complementary description of me on her fabulous San Francisco blog.
I always force myself to do many projects over the summer. I actually got a lot done but.....I still feel lazy
The first project i worked on was two dresses and 3 ruffs that I designed drafted, cut, and sewed. I made them in anticipation for a Alice and wonderland themed party.
My dress is made of stretch netting with tiny flocked hearts all over. I appliqued leather hearts on the front and the back.
My sister's dress is made of a synthetic silk crepe. I appliqued black leather ace of spades.
Pierre and my friend both wore my ruffs. Pierre was styled by me. Hes wearing a ace, hearts and club print top, with a lobster brooch.
My next projects include my slight obsession with the fashion spot. This particular forum mimics project runway. Instead of sewing up designs, we just stick to illustrations. When you win you get to set the next challenge. Ive participated in a mood board + collection challenge, Mexico inspired, and Batman's joker children's wear. Out of all the challenges I personally like the mood board challenge(colonial barn ghost), because I REALLY got into it.
Colonial barn ghost
This summer I wish I had....
made more clothing
made leather collars
executed one of the "colonial barn ghost" (entire middle outfit)
I based my outfit on a theme, as I usually do. My theme for the night was River by the forest. So of course the colors I chose to wear, the animals, and the textures all pointed back to this. Little photo shoot:

This new boutique in the mission, ended up eerily looking exactly like my apartment!! With its stark white walls and little colorful curiosities, my apartment and the boutique could easily be sisters!!!!
