Early birthday gift!

Yay, I got my birthday gift early this year!!! Freddy organized our friends to pitch in for the Canon SD 780. I really wanted a camera before I went to Paris, so my gift came early this year. HEHE! Thanks to everyone who pitched in. I love it and I already made a little video outside my house!
Oops, I just realized I messed up with the sound....some of the background sound didn't get deleted. Whoops!!! ;-)

New things...

YAY collage. Featured here are two new items that I made from a vintage tablecloth. I think it's pretty cool, but I wonder if people will think it's too weird that it might have been used for dining on at some point.

I had an interesting discussion with a friend about used clothing tolerance levels. I know some people who won't wear anything used, and I know some people who will wear a used bathing suit. Two extremes. I guess I'm ok with wearing anything used, especially if it looks like it's in great condition.

Where do you guys draw the line with used clothing/accessories? Dress, shoes, bedsheets, bathing suit?? I want to know!

New designs for Fall

Here are two new tops from my Fall collection. For this design, I used either deadstock vintage or second-hand fabric for the body of the shirt, and the corners of vintage scarves to make the triangle shaped front. The pointed sleeve details were inspired by a 1940's dress. :-) I secretly hope the plaid one doesn't sell cause I would really love to keep it!

These tops, as well as some other things, can be found in my etsy shop. Yay! :-)

I've been hanging out in Brooklyn the past few days. I got to see friends, ate great food, and went to a bunch of stores to check out "what's happening" in fashion. Overall, I really like the trends for this season...SO not excited about big shoulders, but I can see how it looks good on some people. Excited about ruffles and the scalloped details showing up on so many garments. Sooo my style ;-)

That pic of Topshop is for you, Angie.
