THE Cat Dress

Posted in craft, creatures, fashion with tags , , on June 23, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

Why do I call it THE Cat Dress? Because once you’ve seen it, all other cat dresses don’t seem quite catty enough.

Some fine craftsmanship, eh? This stunner debuted at CatCon LA (Yes, that’s a thing. No, I haven’t gone. Yes, I absolutely would.)

X-Presion Pixelated Hair

Posted in body decoration, fashion, geek, hair with tags , , , on February 20, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

X-Presion, a unique, cutting edge hair studio, recently debuted a coloring technique that mimics colored pixels.

At this stage in my life, I doubt I’d ever be daring enough to do such a thing (and it might look a bit less striking on blondes).

Side note: back in college I had jet black hair, and when I went to a professional salon to restore my normal color, I ended up with something similar to this…and by “similar” I mean every color between blonde and black in splotches with no particular pattern. It looked like I’d lost a bet or fallen victim to a seriously awful prank. I wish I’d taken a picture.

Posted in clothing, fashion, geek, wish list with tags , , , on January 15, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

I definitely want to get my hands on some Text Printed Tights.

Coline Design makes a variety of colorful tights with famous literary quotes (from the likes of William Shakespeare, Emily Dickinson, Lewis Caroll). OR, and I love this option, you can order custom text.

You will also find a number of different fonts and styles. I’m such a sentimental fool; I’d probably love to get a pair with memorable words from a loved one.

What quote would you emblazon on your legwear?

I Don’t Get Fashion: 1970’s His N’ Hers

Posted in absurd, advertising, clothing, fashion, humor, retro, vintage with tags , , , , , , on November 7, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I was only alive for mere months of the 70’s, so I did not have the benefit (detriment?) of seeing these fashions arise and fade organically with the changing times. It’s basically a given that anything worn in one time period will be reviled in another (then worn ironically by hipsters). But…was couples dressing really a thing?

This is, as far as I can tell, an actual catalog item, not a Roman Tarzan Baby Wrestling Champion costume.

I feel like the outfits on the left are what 70’s superheroes wore on their days off, if not too concerned with safeguarding a secret identity.

Did no one involved in this entire photoshoot notice that something is missing here? This is not how one leaves leaves the house for (presumably, by the background image) a boat ride.

“We’re soulmates. We finish each other’s sen…sible mint green mini dress sweaters.”

This is what happens when you overshoot the mark after practicing your Catalog Faces too hard.

I am in love with Roza Khamitova’s wing inspired scarves!

There’s something gorgeously empowering about donning some silky, flowing, large wings.

Absolutely stunning! I’ll be adding one of these to my wish list.

Philip Treacy

Check out this headpiece by Philip Treacy (no pics at the link…sorry).

I would most likely injure myself I put this on (and would definitely injure others), but you have to admire the construction! Ah, like a gothic ship in the night…

“What is Fashion?” Amazing 80’s Student Film.

Posted in 80's, fashion, film, humor, quotes with tags , , , , on July 30, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

This student film is totally radical…tubular…clutch. I forgot how many kids had braces back then…or should have had braces. See some Breakfast Club runner-ups discuss their ideas of what fashion is and what it means to them!

My favorite line: “Ska is from England. It’s kinda like Duran Duran, sort of. But they’re kinda like, mediocre to this. They’re not as intense.” *headdesk*
