This is really bugging me.

Does anybody else find that weird trend of over-the-knee socks with under-the-knee boots really annoying? I mean, yeah, you want to show off your cool socks, but it's practically just the cuff! For goodness' sake, wear longer socks or shorter shoes! Perhaps I'm just behind; a lot of people seem to wear it. But it just looks so intentionally stand-outish, it feels to me a bit try-hard. I would be okay with knee-high socks and stillettos, or oxfords, or ankle boots, but the fact that you cover up almost all of your very cool sock just kind of defeats the purpose.

I couldn't find any pictures without faces, but you get my point. Maybe I'll understand it better later.

have fun!

xx ann.

I've never really been into pink jackets, apart from my brief love affair with a barbie raincoat when I was 3, but I love this one. [jak&jill]

three-way tie?

Recently a certain blogger got a rodarte cardigan as a birthday present from the mulleavy sisters themselves! I know, im jealous too *stares at puddle of drool on table*. It got me thinking, if you could have a cardigan which colours would you choose? Their all beautiful but personally I'm rather in love with the first blue/white/black combo. Thoughts?

dear gareth pugh & proenza schouler,

I die. (mostly because of the borderline ridiculous platforms and round studs)

love, Helen.

scraps and sewing.

Hello! By scraps and sewing I mean I've finished my tunic, and various other projects from the past, and have a couple of drawings of a shoe and a dress that were yes-ed by Helen, one of my fellow boxpeople. I don't have a scanner just yet, so the 'scrap' pics might be a bit yucky, but please tell me what you think!
The picture is too faint, but I wrote something along the lines of 'Detaches here' under the third strap; so basically it turns into a pump. Yay...? Lol, I drew this while on a Geography excursion bus.
This is a dress, drawn when trying to get some kind of reaction out of my very fussy friend. Thankfully, she gave it a thumbs up. Helen did too! (as you can see, I scrawled it in the corner,if you can make it out). Sorry for the weird shadow.
This is my tunic! It's a lot different to what i intended to make, but I'm happy with it. I just have to belt it so it doesn't look like a weird sack thing. Sorry for it being sideways. XD.

Yes, it's a ring-handle bag! I made this out of curtain fabric, so I didn't need interfacing. It's so grandma-like. I think I'll send it to my grandma.

Opinions, please! :D Much appreciated.

have fun! ann xx
