People come here from searches...

Mostly for Phillipe Dubuc's one off collection at Simons last fall, peacock tights, pictures of tattoos, pictures of the sacred heart of Mary, and how to make a cummerbund.

1. That collection was a one off, it was super wonderful at that price point, and I wore my sweater into the ground.

2. Peacock tights, Bebaroque.co.uk. they're the best I've seen so far.

3. Tattoo pictures. well they're here.

4. Same I guess.

5. Cummerbunds are easy. your main pattern piece is a rectangle. make a second rectangle by slicing a copy of the first horizontally, spread to make pleats. notch the pleats. optional, triangles for the sides. add a belt like piece to the back, done.

6. oh and people also want to see lycra body suits. this disturbs me. I think it's a fashion trend to watch out for, nothing more.


anyway hi.

This is a personal blog about liking stuff, and making stuff, and having fun. occasionally there is a gratuitous pigeon post.

Another year is approaching




I think I need a new wardrobe.

I'm at a loss as to what that wardrobe would look like, or how I can have one in 10 days.

But I need a new wardrobe.

polyvore


I want that t-shirt by Apiary

This is a classic example of my style. Big knee length skirt (black), t-shirt, button up as cardigan or cardigan as cardigan. Flat sneakers. Red Lipstick. Glasses.

I'm hoping it comes off as charming.

New makeup!!!

I have a bit of a makeup problem.

I will spend a really large portion of my disposable income on makeup, and then only wear it once or twice a week. This past year that hasn't been a problem because I haven't really had any disposable income (YSL gloss pur in black was NOT a discretionary purchase), however with school being over for the session a couple extra dollars fell into my hands.

I purchased Maybelline intense XXL mascara. Big disappointment. I've been used to using Rimmel's extreme definition which gives me what I like to call Drag Queen lashes, and the maybelline just isn't as intense at all. I'll probably replace it by the end of the week.



Then I went to the MAC store and went nuts. I replaced my mineralize skinfinish natural which I had recently run out of, and picked up two new things. An eyeshadow in deep deep deep blue (Contrast) and a super nude lipstick (Vanity's Child).


(also worn for shoot, black eyeshadow from annabelle along lid and in crease, eyeshadow from Rimmel in Dusk (dark brown) on brow, Blush from Rimmel in Berry.)


I think the challenge in wearing this out will be balancing my face so I don't lok horsey. maybe more blush????

-Love a happy happy sarah in makeup heaven.

making stuff








the black dress is going over the black mesh. the black mesh is supposed to keep the black silk up. I am worried.

projects


I'm making a jacket.

In order to do so I need to make a pattern and then test it. Each piece has to match with it's neighbor, and then the whole thing also has to have an over all fit to both the size you want and the proportions. I had previously tested the collar (and changed it, I need to make a couple more changes to it before I cut in real material.) I tried it on myself, however the real test will be at school when I put it on the mannequin.

mildly freaky look-a-like syndrome

so for halloween I dress up like rockstars I resemble. This is a) easy b) tricky because there are really only two.

Annie Lennox

I really don't need to do anything to look like her. But wearing the same clothes, hair and makeup certainly do help things out.

David Bowie



except to really look the same I would have to drop every ounce of fat on my body. and tense all my muscles all the time. In other words I would need a long standing coke habit.
