Theatrical, really. Had these fine feathered headpieces custom made by Alice Hart.
Not really the type of thing you wear on casual Friday.
But definitely the type of thing you wear to the ballet.
Love how peacock feathers are the colour(s) of the ocean. Can you think of anything more beautiful?
Been listening to “No One Does It Like You” by Department of Eagles over and over and over. Take a look at the video which premiered at MoMA in NYC last week. It’s, um, hauntingly beautiful (sorry).
I prefer to ask people who are actually talented with sewing machines, glue guns and millgrain lathe tools to create things for me. So this week will be all about those custom-made pieces.
Like this dress I had made out of raw silk, the world’s most beautiful fabric.
I’m actually looking for another excuse to wear it.
Where would you sport it? Grocery shopping?
I didn’t realize how much Leroy had changed until I stumbled upon this photo.
His ears were so floppy, his fur so fuzzy (and his paws so huge). Thought I’d include a shot of someone who still weighs 8 lbs.
My little Bernie cat.
And for years the man on the right has been making me smile.
Because I have his entire outfit. From the hat I bought in the men’s department of Century 21 in New York.
To the Hunter Wellies which came straight from Britain.
I am missing his cordouroy pants, but that doesn’t prevent me from feeling very Town & Country.
Four are in Vancouver, one is in Seattle. Where are yours?
1. Deluxe Junk in Gastown, Vancouver
2. Pesky Peacocks on 16th, Vancouver
3. Bohemia Gallery (3243 Main Street, Vancouver)
4. Legends (4366 Main Street, Vancouver)
5. Fremont Vintage Mall in Seattle
(The storefront image, by the way, is actually from Barcelona.)
And because I love Swedish pop bands, I’ll be listening to the Tough Alliance all weekend.
P.S. Something Special is my favourite song. It’s not on their MySpace page, but you can listen to it on emusic.
