I have no need of this...

...but, oh by golly, I so, so covet it!


Stage costume for Marlene Dietrich c.1965
$4900
From The Frock


I'm slightly grateful I can neither afford this dress, nor have a possible occasion to wear it, otherwise, I know I would buy it. The waist would fit me! The bust would be a little tight, perhaps, but how cool is it to think I could fit into a Marlene Dietrich dress?! Who cares how old she was when she wore it - it's a little bit of glamour I'm imagining myself in here, so let me dream. And covet. And drool.

Fashion Hurts

Move over LOLcats and LOLvogue: I Hurt I Am In Fashion is now on the scene.

Cynical, harsh, funny, and sometimes really too close to the bone (ha! I made a model joke. I will burn in hell), I must admit, I like this site. It makes me feel better about being such a slacktivist.

I wonder whether we'll see this as a recurring comic strip in 'Vogue'?

Nice Knockers!

You know the game of 'Pool', right? And you know about 'bowling'...right? Ever thought what it would be like if you combined the two? Sam Sparks did. Guess what he came up with?

That's right. Knokkers.

Without getting into the slightly sexist advertising (including a really awful photo montage that shows more the assets of attractive young women in skirts, bending over to play the game, than the actual game itself), this looks pretty cool. Akin to the giant chessboard or even a giant keyboard, the full-body interaction with Knokkers is probably the biggest drawcard with this, the second depending on what kind of person you are. For me, that's being curious, but I'm guessing for lots of people, it would be being allowed to unleash their inner violent-and-destructive person out for a play.

The founder of the company is still getting Knokkers up-and-running, so I doubt I'll get to play the game with the official, custom-made Knokker balls and table unless I visit America. I want to though! Hopefully it gets up and running all over the world, just so I can have a game and see what all the fuss is about. Thus far, the website needs work, but you can find out more information with a quick google (NB: Make sure you spell it with the 'kk', not 'ck'...).

Just because...

I rather enjoy the styleboard function over at Kaboodle. There's something therapeutic about making a collage, especially when there's a chance of you being able to make that collage come to life somewhat.

I enjoy dressing for an occasion, and am incredibly dorky about it. Most people don't realise that I'm wearing particular things because they're symbolic for me, but that's fine. So long as I can feel silly and fun, that's all that matters.

The Bees Nees (and ankles, and feet)

Putting away some of my clothes yesterday, I realised that I own quite a lot of brightly hued things. There once was a time when my wardrobe was nothing but black and blue, with one or two streaks of red. Now, however, I'm happy to wear loud greens, sunshine yellows and saturated purples. Even pinks, would you believe?

This branching out into colour has made me want to be more adventurous in my choice of footwear. Most of my shoes are black are brown. I wanted my latest pair of heels to be green, but my size was only available in black. What I've been looking at a lot are yellow shoes, actually, or honey-toned shoes. Like so:

Not to mention the the Jeffrey Campbell Pencil Shoes that I'm wanting, of course. I've found myself really drawn to the colour yellow, more and more. Maybe it shows a brighter perspective of looking at things now? Ah, let's face it, I'm probably just craving these:


Honey Joys! Made by me!


Whatever the case, I certainly have honey on my mind...
