Our mother had this sewing pattern from the late 60s or early 70s. My sister fell in love with it some fifteen years later and tried to make it by herself, but failed somehow, or got bored with the labour, or couldn’t find all the necessary tools and materials. (I can’t remember much aside of… Continue reading A fifty years old sewing pattern in my wish list !
Ena, from Osaka, Japan, is a young fashion designer with much talent. She draws inspiration from traditional minimalist silhouette painting of his folk, but also from modern manga, aside of that already old trend in European –mainly French– fashion design, coming from Art Deco; which in turn, had one of its important roots in Japanese… Continue reading Ena – Essential charm outlined in black and white
[These are reshaped and repainted images after an original illustration by Franco-American artist Pascal Champion that touched a very deep fibre inside my heart, as something I have actually seen, and continue to see at times…; or almost; so, I had to adapt it a bit more to my own inner vision.

[Post originaly published on INVISIBLE FORMS, with minor changes and without a final illustration added now] – “Swept away”, by Inslee Fariss (2017) [look below], makes me think a lot of my sister, who was also daring and silly enough to wear a short raincoat like this, with bare legs to the top like this, under the heaviest storm.

– I have recently discovered these nice drawings that Ariel collected in her PC — She used to save hundreds of fashion items, outfits and designs, and also made her own —very good ones—; but these sketches by Inslee Fariss are especial. I do like many of them, and I understand why my sister loved them… Continue reading Fashion Sketches by Inslee Fariss – Pretty girls, prettier puppies and much joy all around

These two following posts, saved as drafts on Polyvore nine months ago, and posted now here by me (with some pain), were made by someone in love; as she noticeably wrote. I’m glad that, in the end, her intended recipient did to me part of the harm he would have done to her in due… Continue reading A Kissy Girl
No need to comment much about the dishevelled hair above and below, the bandana or the associated posts on Polyvore. This is an irrelevant post to almost everybody except the poster himself… but I like it 🙂 About Arthur Schopenhauer —who was a detestable misogynist, but a perfect genius anyway— I just feel like bringing… Continue reading Beautiful “bad hair” & A deep insight by Arthur Schopenhauer -lover of cats
– I think this mod is better -it is also cheaper- than the original set: it is super cheap 🙂 Does anybody wish to make a comment? Does anybody opine that boys may aspire to look cute, dressing chic and girl-like?… Shouldn’t boys (and grown men) dress like they feel like dressing, disregarding all social… Continue reading A Variation on “Showing off Long Legs” – Made for boys
