What am I sewing?

Artist James Merry cannot stop doodling.  In this case he doodles beautifully embroidered flowers integrated into company logos on apparel.  I admire the skill – all hand-done – not machine embroidery.

What am I watching?

November 10, 2014

 

Last week I included a reference to Alexander McQueen’s Tattoo Dress in my Tuesday posting.  In spite of being  a complete fashionista, I was unaware of this designer – even though he did do Whats-her-name’s wedding dress.

Unfortunately, McQueen ended his own life in 2010.  I find his designs imaginative and striking . . .

Whose birthday am I noting on tattoo Tuesday?

November 4, 2014
trigere
Today is the birthday of Pauline Trigere, American fashion designer, who had a long career spanning the decades from the 1940s through the 1990s. Her NYT obituary (2002) states:

She was noted not only for her designing skills, but also for her tailoring and such touches as constructing dresses with no obvious seams.

Miss Trigère wore only her own designs, and she generally punctuated them with several of her trademark turtle pins. She was known both for her meticulous grooming and for a charm that surmounted her blunt, sometimes impolitic comments, spoken in a Gallic accent she never lost.

I remember sewing this dress, or something similar when I was in junior high or high school.  It was not as simple as it looks.

And I forgot that you had to stand all funny when wearing her dresses:

I could not find a Trigere tattoo, but I did find this super tattoo dress by Alexander McQueen:

What is tattoo Tuesday about?

June 4, 2013

eyelashesThis is not a tattoo.  The model is wearing paper lashes from here.

I cannot imaging wearing these without rubbing them off almost immediately.

Or these.

This is makeup, not a tattoo.

But this one is a tattoo.  I would like permanent eyeliner like this (I think.)

What fashion statement am I considering?

June 7, 2012

Category:  Gunsmoke.  Or at the very least Photoshop, from The Theophany.

I also like this one.  I am not a nail polish fan, but this one is interesting.

And this one.  This is fun nail polish that a friend shared with me.
