Draping, pleats and folds of Venetian inspiration in the new season.
The long, steamy Greco-Roman-inspired gowns are, without doubt, a classic red carpet events. We are not surprised to see Angelina Jolie, Sienna Miller or Megan Fox with goddess dresses inspired by ancient Greece. Moreover, the rise of the ridge coincides with a summer marked by the omnipresence of the influential designer Madeleine Vionnet (1876-1975). The museum of Les Arts Decoratifs in Paris plays host to an exhibition now that the large contribution of the French fashion designer who now carry. Highly recommended, yes.

But art transcends the fold this season to the next series of garments that have nothing to do with cokctail long dresses, which will use only rarely. For example, the proposed new Balenciaga care is based on silk drapery key miniskirts applied to cake-shaped shell and pants Johdpur Santiago. This is a 360 degree turn for a designer who has focused on the futuristic elements during the past collections. The design duo Viktor & Rolf also joined this trend, combining pasty white with earthy tones and architectural drapery. The result is disturbing and radically different doses of glitter and metallic dress eighties style we've seen in other designers.

Ann Demeulemeester jacket commitment pattern models seemingly carefree, Valentino applies its extensive knowledge of this technique to cherry leather handbags with roses as a flower and uses Christian Dior yellow brocade dress in tight wrap.

Draping, folds and Greco-Roman style complex networks reappear in the new winter collections. X Balenciaga silhouette strokes by adjusting the waist and focusing the entire volume in the miniskirt and a pronounced shoulder sweater.

Dedicated Follower of Fashion?

I am most certainly NOT a dedicated follower of fashion.  I stick to the classic timeless stuff that never goes out of fashion.  I definintely don't follow the seasonal changes in the trends.  Besides my budget does not keep up with the rapid modifications.

In my opinion, the fashion lately is a Shopaholic’s Nightmare! 

There is some fugly stuff going on this season.  Have the style guru's run out of ideas?

Here's some things I think NO ONE should have in their cupboard EVA!

Fugly Gladiator Sandals

These are the ugliest things since doubling up on your shoulder pads in the 80's.

Harem Pants

Who on earth wants to walk around looking like you've shat in yer nappy? 
Leave them for Ali Baba and with any luck his 40 thieves will nick them

High Waist Trousers

They make even the skinnest people look chunky.

Clashing Animal Prints
Not even flattering on Sharon Slutty Stone

Leave them for gangsta mafia costumer parties and Humphry Bogart

Be Who You Are

Halloween! Trick or treat?



Let me explain what this is....

Many people visit my pages... print several coloring pages and then staple them together to make a coloring book. I know of granparents making books for their grandkids, of a teacher putting one together for one of her hospitalised students, I know of parents putting together coloring books this way to give out as party favors and so on.

With this in mind I thought I'd make a unisex coloring book front cover that you can print for your personalised coloring book.

Add to it the name of the recipient and your name as the kind person who put it together. The good thing about it is that this front cover in itself can be colored in.



This is a Disney coloring page of Mickey Mouse at Halloween...
