Purple Suede Friend

Quick outfit post before I get to work on a looong project. I just have to show off this purple suede elephant belt I picked up in a vintage shop!


Close-up of one of the elephants. They're both made of metal and could probably repell a bullet. *ping*



I am loving this song right now! It keeps me in a great mood, and reminds me of the joys of summer!

Kid Cudi - All Summer

I hope everyone is having a good Fall as well!

What I've been up to recently.

 My mom gave me some beads she picked up in Argentina when she used to travel a lot, and even though most of the things I design don't involve beads and string, I decided to make some necklaces!

Fashion Decade Drawings. 60's, 70's and 80's.

Here are some scans of some drawings I did from these books Fashions of a Decade. I returned them to the library already but soon I will get them back and take some scans of the pictures in these books! They are marvelous!

But for now...

(bottom left) Yves Saint Laurent 1967 dress. Worn with sparkly gold tights, and has a big pink face on it. I would love to come across this dress one day. I'll be searching for it!

(top right) Christian Dior 1962 dress. Was worn by the more conservative group back in the 60's.

(top left) Brigitte Bardot...enough said! 

(top outfit) Yves Saint Laurent pantsuit. The year? Not sure. But this outfit was gorgeous in the book! With a big gold belly-dancer-like belt and bell-bottom pants with crazy 70's designs on it!
(bottom outfit) Pierre Cardin 1973, Pants with...knee patches on them? I've never seen this before. Looks like something polo players would wear I'm not sure if I'd be down with wearing them, but you never know!

(girl with gray hair) Comme des Garcons, 1989. Pretty good description? Maybe. Anywho this is Rei Kawakubo's silver wig. Rei Kawakubo is nothing short of a genius, you should know this...if you don't please just stay under that rock, or in that cave. Wherever your staying at not knowing who Rei Kawakubo is...ya crazy.

(bottom left) MORE Rei Kawakubo, pants, 1980. also called a "japanese construction". WHATEVER, there poofy pants with stripes on them, pretty sweet. I'd wear them with some type of red shoe (HEELS!)....but only if there black and white and I would hope that I don't get mistaken for someone in jail.

(bottom right) Vivienne Westwood, 1985, mini crinoline. Crinoline, ladies and gentlemen, is something us girls put under our skirts so they look poofy or poofy-er however you prefer. I am a fan!
