With this 30 minute documentary that just came out, I finally understand Northern Soul

Things That Look Like Other Things

Select pieces from Prada Spring 2014 look like this Etsy vintage sweater.

And that sweater looks like the Go-Go's first album cover.


On there is this feature where you can view a specific look in motion, it's called "move it!,"

and when I see that exclamated phrase on the left upper corner,
I get a certain song stuck in my head for a good hour.

Thanks! Everything Stinks Now! But is the best place to go for runway fashion stuffs every season.

(BTW, I found and favorited the Etsy sweater by just searching for "strange")

Fabulous Fashionistas

Old age doesn't have to be grim and boring.

I don't think this is available on TV in the US, not even on BBC America or something along those lines. But I found it online and downloaded the whole thing and put it here to download for free. Sadly, I don't think any US television channels would ever put something like this out. Prove me wrong, American programming!
Never mind, it's on Youtube :)

Anyway, I appreciated how it's mostly about how they keep healthy and mentally happy. The title makes it seem all about the clothes, but I understand the producers probably did that to get people's attention. There's so much more to this documentary than discussing the outer appearance of these women. Also, most of them preferred to shop in thrift shops(charity shops) and buy second-hand / vintage. LOVE IT.

Cat Pillers

These handmade pillows are real life and they can be purchased in exchange for money on Etsy.

I have a small cat pillow collection that initially happened by accident and I am totally Ok with taking that joke further and browsing Etsy and thrift stores for more. I think they look hilarious on my sofa.

Fisby likes the pillows, and is not a pillow.

Shop Update – Silks, Skirts, Jackets

Who knew there were so many tones of blues & greens in short sleeve silk tops available for me to snatch up and put on sale in the shop?

Contrasting Contrast Vs Contrasting Contrast

Which is best? Dirty words embroidered along with flowers on feminine lady tops, OR Dirty words written in script on delicate plates and tea cups? Who cares?? They are both equally great ideas that someone came up with and then turned into cool businesses.

The French-based label, Locher's, has been on my radar for some time and I bought two of their blouses years ago. I'm excited about their new batch that was just made available (the small and medium sizes sell out so quickly).

I especially like this one cos you can hide the message with your hair, or scarf, or hair scarf if you're at work in an office and a bunch of people from France come to hang out.


Vandalized Vintage
out of New Zealand has been at this for a while, too, and it never gets old. It's more than just writing a word on a cup... for example, these poison jars are outer limits.
