Halloween


OK so this year's halloween planning has been seriously last minute.

I'd considered doing barbarella, but only if I knew I had a good party to go to. and I didn't. So no Jane Fonda in space for me.

And today, the 27th of october, genius struck.

It's easy, it's skin tight, it's pink, and it isn't a gimp suit.






The Pink Power Ranger!!!!!!!!!

I promise photos, especially if I actually do it.

cause omg. go rangers go.

do you want my boots?




I put them on the ol ebay for a dollar. If you live in montreal we can probably figure out a pick up/no shipping situation.

these babies are awesome. they just never ever fit me.

Labels!!




So I got a logo redesign this summer, and it was fabulous but I haven't really spent the time to prep it for actual things I need. Like tags, stickers, hang tags and new business cards.



But I did a whole bunch of really quick work this afternoon and at the very least I know have a sticker design.

I love this parka

I think I might be getting ready to star in some action adventure film.

Sometimes my goal of fashion being about Art Directing your Life has been taken a few steps too far.

Now Featuring!

So this week has been pretty heavy on the publicity, and I am not complaining. First I was featured on Burdastyle and that was totally cool, but reminded me that I should probably clean up some of my duplicate projects there, and pay a little more attention to what everyone else is doing. It's a really cool site where you get this little sneak peek into people's studios around the world.

Second was a feature on Etsy's Storque Blog. Where my Mesh hex leggings were featured as Boot Appropriate. And I have to agree.

Third, I was also featured in a Montreal treasury on etsy, and that makes me happy because that its user selected. So someone just really liked it a lot. Not as a promotional tool, but just out of interest. Yay!

Ok off to run errands, get library books, and prepare for a photoshoot(!!!).

Today I've moved on to a new piece. It also opens in the front, but I'm not sure if how I'm going to finish it.

Eventually I should have a mini collection of finished pieces that I can phtograph. hopefully they won't be too out there.

I've been working on getting some neck pieces made in time for the holiday season. this one could be intense.

Fashion month is over.

And I didn't do a good job keeping up.

Phoebe Philo used to be head designer for Chloe. She's recently been picked up as the head designer for Celine, sort of the big sister of Chloe. It's a long standing french ready to wear line which is known for being lady like, wearable, and casually elegant.

Well, Phoebe Philo has modernized the house, interpreted current trends for her client base of 35-55 women of means. It's a blend of leather separates and drapey ladylike sportswear. Nothing is yelling at me to wear it, but I would not be put out if just about anything from this collection showed up in my closet.

Pierced Hem on Jak&jil


Totally punk rock? or just designer nonsense?

I think it becomes pretty clear it's the later once you think about have to by 100 cbrs just to hem a shirt with. and then you need the little tool that closes them up. It's 50 bucks just to hem your shirt.


However, the last thing I'm going to do is slag Stella McCartney for these bad boys.

Undercover


I don't think there's anything here I don't love.

this dude is a Japanese city active wear dude. His clothes are simple, technical, and fantastic. His entire ss10 collection screams buy me.

I just love the orange/coral grey combination in technical fabrics.

Vivienne Westwood corset trousers 2

want. need. but changed.

It has that kind of weird diaper looking crotch, I'm assuming, because it has a second set of buttons just under the bust for the trousers to attach too. so they can be high waisted... ??? but as they are the crotch looks funny, and leg width looks like it could be adjusted more at the thigh less at the calf.

WANT

I've been bothering everyone.


Because I am so god damned excited about seeing Dog Bus tonight.

Brothers Jakey McSpanky and Jules McKools are the coolest dorkiest kids ever.

Their hooks are unbelievably catchy, and they have the kind of energy that makes me super excited.

They write songs about robots, juice boxes, and man cribs.

If you LOVE Grand Buffet your will lose it over Dog Bus.

Promise.

Tonight, 11pm The Playhouse.

(in montreal Yo).
