The sun is shining extra, extra, extra bright today. Greatly welcomed after days of rain. It seems as if the sun is making up for lost time. I woke up this morning squinting. So no ordinary eyewear will do. Definitely need something to match the sun’s intensity.
I found these lovely yet quirky Double-Framed Sunglasses from Dolce & Gabbana‘s 2010 collection. The double frames are just what I need to protect my eyeballs from all this sunshine. So I’m gonna start saving now, should have them by mid-fall. Just in time. ;-D
THE FUTURE IS HERE!
I just love when fashion and science collide.
Fashion designer Suzanne Lee is working along side scientists in an effort to grow clothes. The idea is absolutely fascinating and can open up a whole new world for fashion & science. Although there are still some kinks to be worked out its well on its way to becoming one of fashion’s groundbreaking innovations.
So I’ve overcome the blight and pestilence otherwise known as the flu to bring you another shoe installment. This is one of my faves, because of the colorful yet simple design and the transparent heel.

In the coming days I’ll be posting some of my older illustrations, drawings and sketches leading up to my present work. I think it is important to document one’s journey and take note of progress. It should be interesting to see how this story developes. These earlier drawings (sounds like an archaeological find) are what I would call a quick documentation of an idea. Not really concentrating on perspective, just wanting to get it out of my mind and down on paper as fast as I possibly can.
I make theses shoes of paper because it makes me happy, brings me joy or should I say Glee. I draw them because I want them to one day become real. And sharing them with you is step one .
It was a few months after graduating that I’d discovered a love for designing shoes. Like almost every woman I love shoes but it had never even crossed my mind to actually design them. And then without any warning I just started and couldn’t stop. Long story short it is this that made me reconsider my self as a graphic designer and it was from that point on I knew I couldn’t just be that.
First up. Pink Zebra, a not so poised ballerina made tame by an ornate broach.

When people think about the 80’s the 1st thing that comes to mind are bamboo, doorknocker, earrings, Adidas tracksuits and a mild yet worrying obsession with Aquanet …ok, mild is an understatement. But what about those powerful shoulders? Well they´re back with a vengeance and trust me ya mama never had it this good
The past years have seen the re-emergence of the Power Shoulder and the movement is still going strong. Unlike most trends this is no one-day-fly, if anything it has gained momentum. The last time Power Shoulders were in I was young, impressionable …and broad shouldered. No seriously, I hated my shoulders back then because they jutted out from my neck at a very unladylike 90 degree angle.
